Bubba OG - Alternative Wellness Center
This sample showed off thin cylindrical nugs that screamed “kush” to the review staff. White it wasn’t amazing in any area, it was a tightly-manicured, above average density sample that shimmered when the LED was cast its direction. Its blend of greens and long slender orange pistils gave it a classic look… no flaws to speak of here, the plant appeared to be healthy when harvested.
This one could almost be mistaken for a Diesel with its fairly acrid fuely twang, but it’s still Kush-dominant for sure, exhibiting an array of soily, musky smells. It wasn’t pungent or even that noticeable until it was ground, which released all the aroma.
A near-perfect fusion of the two standard tastes of these strains, it was primarily a spicy, herby Kush taste but one reviewer picked up definite Bubba notes of that signature dark chocolate/coffee musky, bitter quality. It possessed a long aftertaste as well, hanging in the throat for 5+ minutes after medicating. The knock on this one was the flush, which appeared to be too short, as the ash was a murky medium gray with some dark chunks remaining.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Major mood elevation, anti-anxiety, body relaxation, strong ocular attention, some anti -nausea and sleep aid properties.
This was a bit of a surprise for us, as the bag appeal didn’t scream potency. But this was one of the more lastingly potent strains we’ve had lately, with a torquey power that continued through almost 2 hours after a 15 minute “creeper” delay. Great relaxation and mood elevation properties made this a superb late-night relaxation strain — its Bubba qualities come out later in the duration and can make it a great segue into sleep when medicated a few hours before bedtime. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the Highlands — great job by Alternative Wellness with this one.
