Bubba Kush Strain Cannabinoids

THC 19.75 - 21.5% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.9 - 1.05% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.29 - 0.66% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.22 - 1.34% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.12 - 0.3% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.24 - 0.91% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

I am growing bubba kush. It looks NOTHING like the photos I have seen or the photo on the packaging/ The flowedrs are black and white. The blackness runs through the sugar leafs. Only in sunlight can see see it is a very dark VERY dark purple. I spoke to where the seeds come from and they say it is a pre 1996 strain, but I would really love to knpw what I have???

Honestly, this is one of my top 5 favorite strains! It has amazing effects that come strong within three hits and you start feeling relaxed. The cerebral effects are less noticeable but you can expect to experience a gentle sense of mental tranquility and euphoria. This strain is obviously best for evening use due to its strong sedative effects.

I don’t agree with Leafly and most reviews here when they say that it makes you sleepy. It didn’t make me sleepy at all, in fact I was ready to head out and eat, lol! I headed to my fav diner and ordered a share for two! I love this dope.

delivers a good punch to the brain. This is one of the most potent strains that I have ever tried. It delivers a full mind and body high almost immediately. No doubt this is a strong indica that will knock you out within 20 minutes so avoid smoking it in public. if you are in search of something to help with insomnia then this is it.

There is nothing I enjoy more than smoking Bubba Kush after a long and draining week. I get to reset and recharge my batteries for the upcoming work week. It sets me loose and helps me sleep like a baby.

Yes, Bubba Kush is an auto-flowering plant and it derives this trait from its parent plant.
The Bubba Kush is crossed with the Bubba Pre'98 and Ruderalis.
Other strains with the same name of Kush have similar traits. Some of the similar ones are the OG Kush, LA Continental, and Master Kush.
Bubba Kush was first created by Matt Burger in the year 1992 in New Orleans.
The Bubba Kush features broad dark green leaves and big flower buds. The flowers also grow strings and are recognized by their golden-orange hairs.
The Bubba Kush is very potent and strong with immediate effects on the user. THC ratio can reach 21%, that's why beginners should be careful with dosage.
