This Bubba is lighter than most that we’re used to seeing — it had a light minty green color and the pistils were also a lighter golden orange rather than the normal Bubba brick red. This definitely seems to be a somewhat rare cut, as it just seemed quite different than the ones we’ve had locally in a variety of ways. The harvest timing was very good, with a collection of golden and amber-headed trichomes amongst clear and cloudy. Structure-wise, it’s exactly what we expect from the notoriously low-yielding plant, with dense oddly-shaped nuggets made up mostly of large calyxes. The only real flaw we found were a couple of tiny seeds, which were only noticed via the microscope.
Strong marks for this Bubba thanks to its fairly unique musky pine aroma. Though it lacked some of the normal chocolate/coffee Bubba aroma, we almost liked it more for that uniqueness. It has a very pungent aroma in the jar/bag prior to being ground up, easily being noticed from several feet away. The complexity and uniqueness seemed to come out post-grind, where it freshened up to a piney sharpness that reminded us of more aggressive Kush cuts such as LA.
Fresher and more frontal than most Bubbas, this one seemed to carry a piney flavor on the inhale, changing to a more spicy, floral, incense-like flavor on the exhale and aftertaste. Like most Bubbas, the taste hangs in your head for quite some time and leaves a pleasant spicy smell in the air. Though we really enjoyed the flavor, the final ash was a murky medium gray, indicating that the flush could’ve been quite a bit better.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Heavy muscle relaxation, pain relief, mood elevation, energy to start, and sleep aid to finish.
We were a bit confused by the aroma and taste, as they were different than the vast majority of Bubba Kush cuts we’ve tried — some reviewers liked it more than normal, others were less blow-away, but we all enjoyed it thoroughly. It’s rare that all reviewers report a nearly identical physical sensation, but the massaging upper back qualities this one displayed were probably the best part of the experience. For patients seeking a medicinal Indica that doesn’t go right for the tiredness from the start, this Bubba from Verde offers a unique experience that will impress even those who are nonplussed with the strain after years of similar cuts. A few minor flaws aside, this is a great Bubba — if those issues are corrected, we can easily see this one in the strong A range due to its lasting duration and high medicinal value.
