About Bubba OG
Bubba OG 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.
Bubba OG hits quickly for an indica-dominant strain. The strain’s pleasant physical effects are soon met with a wave of euphoria and a subsequent desire to share the good vibes with familiar friends. Despite its mostly sleep vibes, though, Bubba OG still allow users to maintain a clear head. If they so desire, smokers can remain focused on any tasks that don’t involve physical activity or coordination. As the high wears on or as dosage is increased, intractable couch-lock may set in, followed closely by full, sleep-inducing sedation. Because it can be so soporific, Bubba OG is recommended for evening or nighttime use. Some negative side effects of the high include red eyes and a feeling of cottonmouth.
Bubba OG’s thorough sedation can have many benefits for medical cannabis patients as well. Its physical numbing can ease aches and pains, whether they’re temporary as due to injury or chronic as caused by conditions like lupus or arthritis. Its mood-altering effects may also provide temporary refuge from the acute symptoms of stress and depression. Finally, Bubba OG strain can ameliorate the painful intraocular pressure that is a primary symptom of glaucoma. Because it comes with a low risk of paranoid, cerebral thought patterns, this strain can be a good choice for those who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
