Death Bubba is a new high-quality hybrid. An amazing new strain that might be even better than the sum of its parts.
Those parts are two of the most outstanding marijuana strains in North America – Bubba Kush and Death Star.
During the 1990s Bubba Kush was one of the most famous names in the Californian dope scene, counting Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill and Dr Dre as some of its biggest fans.
The Kush phenotype (its particular genetic form) is one of the most important varieties of cannabis. Bubba Kush displays many of the most characteristic Kush attributes. The plant is thick and aquat and the buds dense and chunky. When burnt, Bubba Kush releases the classic Kush hashish flavours and it carries the aroma of coffee mixed with fruity notes.
The effects of Kush are usually heavy and sedative and Bubba Kush is a prime example. A 100% indica strain, with a high THC content, ranging from 15% to 22%, it lulls its users into a sedative state. But the Bubba Kush high is known for not preventing users from maintaining their focus and performing tasks. The strain is a great choice for those wishing to alleviate the symptoms of stress, insomnia and depression.
Meanwhile, in the Midwest, an indica-dominant hybrid strain with an earthy aroma and an unmistakable a blend of lemon and rubber, started to generate a following amongst weed aficionados. Death Star became well-known for the characteristic, creeping onset of its powerful high that broke over users in waves of relaxed euphoria.
The indica/sativa ratio of Death Star is a balanced 75/25, with its potency due to a notably high THC content. The effects of Death Star are typically positive and calming and it is often used to combat depression and stress.
Finally, then, these famous strains have been successfully bred and the result is Death Bubba. Death Bubba is visually remarkable, with deep purple hues and densely packed with trichomes and terpenes.
Combining Death Star and Bubba Kush has produced an extremely pungent skunk which releases a sweet, earthy smoke. Users describe the high as semi-sedative, which relaxes the user and slowly soothes physical discomfort.
Grand Daddy Purple is a 100% indica strain that contains up to 23% THC content and very low levels of CBD. It was developed in San Francisco and is the product of crossing two well-known indica strains – Big Bud and Purple Urkle. As a pure indica with high THC levels, Grand Daddy Purple has become popular as a guaranteed way to find tranquility.
Often referred to as Grand Daddy Purps or, simply, GDP, this strain is reported as being easily the most requested strain from medical cannabis dispensaries. It is also used recreationally and is readily available from outlets and online dispensaries.
The Purple moniker derives from the plants aroma which has clear fruity, berry-like tones and has been compared to marshmallows. The taste is sweet and reminiscent of grapes.
As a 100% indica strain with a very high THC content, Grand Daddy Purple is an ideal means to find a deeply sedative high. GDP acts quickly to calm the body and mind, as such it is certainly a strain to enjoy in the evening and is particularly well-suited to use as an aid to a good night’s sleep.
GDP can also be used for a range of conditions that are eased by relaxation. Stress and anxiety are effectively reduced by GDP and it is also used to manage chronic pain. This strain is also an obvious choice for anyone suffering from insomnia.
It should be emphasised that GDP was really developed with many of these conditions in mind and is a reliable relaxant that is very effective at treating many conditions. The ‘body-melt’ frequently experienced with high THC indica strains is likely rather than possible and GDP is best used later in the day.
Duke Nukem may be named after a video game character who spends his days obliterating “alien bastards,” but this strain is a lot more laid back than its action hero namesake. Mostly sativa hybrid produces an active mental high that is uplifting and may have you feeling more creative than commando. It’s a cross between Chemmando and Chernobyl and flowers in 9 to 11 weeks. The strain is a fairly easy plant to grow and should give medium to high yields. Its buds are known to be especially colorful with shades of frosty pinks and oranges. Careful not to confuse this strain with Nuken, which is a different indica dominant hybrid.
OG Shark, a rare strain found primarily in Canada, sets high standards with its impressive THC content and pungent, earthy aroma. Patients most commonly turn to this heavy-hitter for nausea, pain, and sleep disorders, as well as many other symptoms.
Fruit Loops is an indica-dominant strain that has a lineage of proven cannabis strains – Blue Dream, White Widow, Grapefruit and Blueberry. Each contributes to an enticing hybrid with a fruity terpene profile and high levels of THC. Fruit Loops is often described as a ‘must-have’ cannabis strain and is stocked by cannabis outlets and online dispensaries.
As you might expect, Fruit Loops has a tangy, tropical aroma. Breaking open the buds releases the scent of berries and there are spicy undertones. The taste is similarly fruity with notes of berries and a sweetness that is reminiscent of honey.
Fruit Loops is a fast-acting hybrid which starts with a gentle head-high. Shortly after first inhaling users commonly feel uplifted, their nerves are calmed and they experience feelings of euphoria. Users may feel tiredness dissipate and their energy levels rise but, in general, the head-buzz is soothing.
This improved outlook makes Fruit Loops a good choice for social use. Deep conversations and giggles are likely to ensue when used with friends.
Fruit Loops is normally considered a recreational strain and is especially suited to being used at the end of the day. Its particular profile also makes it suitable for relieving stress, depression and PTSD. Fruit Loops may also be used to combat physical ailments such as joint pains, arthritis and muscle cramps.
Bruce Banner is a sativa-dominant (60/40) strain that is a potent, powerful force with, as you might expect, bright green leaves and big buds. Much more to Bruce Banner than its comic book name, a high THC content attracts a growing legion of fans making a Bruce Banner a popular choice at cannabis outlets, with many users claiming it is the best sativa on the market. If you would like to investigate just how incredible this stain is, it can easily be found at many online dispensaries.
The characteristic bright-green buds are sugar-coated with white trichomes and fiery orange pistils. Bruce Banner has a lineage that includes OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel and this is noticeable in its aroma which combines diesel with fruity, berry-like notes. It certainly comes through in a taste that is as sweet and fruity as berry-flavored candy
The effects of Bruce Banner have Hulkesque strength. THC content rises from 16% to 24% while CBD is around 1%. The high comes on quickly and sticks around for a long time. It is characterised as an energetic, cerebral-buzz that initiates creativity and aids sociability. Users of Bruce Banner report feeling uplifted, infected with a sense of vitality.
At the same time there is a heavy, calming body-high that dissipates feelings of stress or anxiety. Bruce Banner users report feeling alert but relaxed.
Bruce Banner has been used successfully to combat feelings of stress and discomfort. It is also reported that Bruce Banner can effectively assist the treatment of migraines, fatigue and chronic pain.
