These Bubba Kush buds are a dark green color with purple hues throughout. They're also covered in orange pistils and frosty white trichomes.
The buds are big and fluffy, with a satisfying weight and texture. They break apart nicely, with a gritty trichome-rich texture that I think is fun to handle.
Fresh, which is refreshing in the Virginia market.

The smoke is smooth and easy on the throat, making it a great choice for those who prefer a milder toking experience. The flavor is earthy with cocoa notes and hints of grape.
Bubba Kush is an 80/20 indica-dominant strain that is believed to be a cross between an Afghani landrace strain and an OG Kush, although the exact genetics are up for debate.
