Retaining a 60% indica genetic makeup, the calming effects are there, and the 16% THC content will treat you right, coming with an extra hit of euphoria too. Similar to its feminized counterpart, this strain brings smokers a sweet sensation with a lovely hit of earthiness underneath.
Like many indica-dominant cultivars, Bubble Kush grows best at a low density. This allows the plant to fully benefit from the soil’s warmth, giving it a bushy appearance in the process. The fully matured plant shows off a brilliant dark green, along with red hairs popping up all around. A magnifying glass gives growers a close-up view of the trichome crystals as they turn from clear to cloudy, with just a touch of amber, as harvest nears. Flowering takes around 8–9 weeks, and with proper care and good conditions, you can expect indoor yields of up to 600g/m².
Bubble Kush derives from the famous Bubba Kush, but the story doesn’t end there. In fact, the name Bubble Kush itself hints at the origins of this strain and its famous ancestor. Specifically, Bubble Kush is a hybrid of OG Kush, another famous member of the Kush cannabis family, and the Indiana-born and Netherlands-developed Bubble Gum. With that royal pedigree, it’s easy to see how Bubble Kush has quickly established a strong reputation.
While Bubble Kush grows quite easily for a feminized photoperiod strain, some people prefer things to happen automatically (pun intended). Blending Bubble Gum, OG Kush, and Royal Critical Automatic, Bubble Kush Automatic is even cooler than it sounds.
Out of all the famous strains synonymous with cannabis in general, Bubba Kush is one of the most recognisable. Bringing character and a strong punch to every smoke, it has quite a few fans; but it isn’t for everyone. Science has taken us far, though, and we’re excited to tell you about one of the most quality Bubba Kush descendants available today. It goes by the name of Bubble Kush, and it’s more than ready to get you lifted.
Bubble Kush Automatic stays short, stout, and speedy in the grow-op, racing from germination to harvest in around eight weeks. Plants rarely exceed a metre indoors (reaching up to 140cm outdoors), but can deliver respectable yields of 400g/m² in good conditions. Individual outdoor plants can produce up to 170 grams.
If you’re growing outside, however, yields may be slightly different depending on climate. This plant does best in dry conditions, while a humid or otherwise wet environment will significantly inhibit growth. This is because the damp weather creates a higher risk of rot or mould forming on the buds.
If you want to know how Bubble Kush will treat you, just ask the people that grow and smoke it! It’s earned a 4.5/5 rating on our site out of 139 reviews, and virtually every written review showers it with praise. We can’t say it hasn’t earned every single accolade.
With its diverse pedigree, one can also expect the flavour to flaunt some variety as well. The bubble gum notes are the strongest, so this is the strain for you if you’re tearing through a package a day like some of us. Bringing an unconventional yet welcome contrast, this strain also pleases with hints of earthiness and pine.
Looking to kick back and daydream a little? Meet Bubble Kush and Bubble Kush Automatic, two sweet and calming strains derived from the famous Bubba Kush.
Indoor/outdoor: Often preferred for indoor grows because its large dense buds will suffer quickly in moist climates.
Grow techniques: Bubba Kush is a great strain for hydroponic growers as the plants stay short and dense, growing beautiful trichome-covered buds. Pack them in closely and prune their lower branches to develop a beautiful SOG (sea of green). Top your crop to create full, even canopies in your garden.
Strain overview: A descendant of OG Kush and another indica-dominant strain, Bubba Kush is known for its knockout potency. It delivers hash, chocolate, and coffee flavor profiles with effects that leave you in a tranquil state of bliss. This strain grows short and fat with large dense buds, speaking to its Afghani lineage.
