A potent member of the OG family, Bubba OG is a must-try for hybrid fans. This strain was developed by Canadian producers Dr. Greenthumb Seeds as a cross between the famed Pre-98 cut of Bubba Kush and Ghost OG, another OG Kush descendant. It’s a knockout-grade indica, sure to pull the plug on stress and pain while allowing smokers to maintain a clear head. Bubba OG has consistently high THC levels and has been tested at between 15% and 27%.
Bubba OG has small to medium-sized flowers that have a clustered, chunky appearance. The buds adhere in a dense formation, typical of indica varieties. Leaves are a bright shade of spring green and are twisted through with red to orange pistils. In many cases, flowers of Bubba OG are a patchwork of green, purple, and blue. These latter colors come about when anthocyanin pigments in the strain’s genetics are stimulated by cold weather during vegetation; the process is not dissimilar from the changing of foliage in autumn due to depleted levels of chlorophyll. The already-colorful flowers are capped off by a coating of translucent white trichomes.
When properly cured, flower of Bubba OG carry the sweet aroma of berries and citrus. On closer inspection, there are also base notes of hash and incense, likely the influence of double grandparent strain OG Kush. Meanwhile, breaking open or grinding up the flowers yields hints of fresh pine. When combusted, Bubba OG burns with a thick, harsh smoke that may tickle the back of the palate and trigger coughing for some. On the exhale, this smoke can taste sweet like overly ripe fruit, along with some subtle diesel fumes.
