It is also a great plant to cultivate in your grow room. Each of Bubba Gift’s calyxes are full of resin while its buds are topped with a delicious sugary coating of trichome. Today, we are going to review this gift to the world and find out all there is to know about Bubba’s Gift strain.
Bubba’s Gift is a strong Indica-dominant strain. Its Indica/Sativa percentage is almost as close to that of the pure strain. There is no doubt that it is a potent strain of medical marijuana. After smoking, it offers a great deal of relaxation as well as a mild body high.
With THC levels reaching up to 20%, this potent strain is certainly a favorite among marijuana connoisseurs.
What is Bubba’s Gift strain?
Bubba’s Gift is a marijuana hybrid variety and is the Indica dominant cross between “God’s Gift” and “Bubba Kush.” Bubba Kush, itself, is a hybrid of Bubblegum and the Hindu Kush whereas God’s Gift is a hybrid between OG Kush and Granddaddy Purple.
With a pleasing aroma and a colorful aesthetic appeal, Bubba’s Gift gives pleasant sensations of light pressure that reach from temple to temple and helps to free all muscles of their tension.
How was Bubba’s Gift developed?
Bubba’s Gift is the result of a happy accident when Bubba Kush was crossed with the Purple Indica God’s Gift. This crossing of the two extremely popular strains means Bubba’s Gift is an Indica-dominant (80%).
Bubba’s Gift was bestowed upon us by Humboldt Seed Organisation in 2007 and, ever since, has caught people’s attention with its potency and flashes of distinct colors.
Bubba’s Gift just keeps on giving. It is truly a wonder for the palate as it floods the taste buds with a sweet flavor of grapes and ripened berries. This sweet, fruity flavor is certainly one of the best Bubba have ever had.
Not only are you met with this fruity taste but it is further enhanced by a woody undertone that transforms into a rich, earthy aftertaste as you exhale. One of the most flavorful strains out there.
Odor and flavor
The aromas produced in Bubba’s Gift are sweet but with earthy and dessert spicy odors. When it is grounded or crushed, it gives out a complex blend of scents that emerge. It has a sweet fragrance that is reminiscent of berries and grapes.
Its distinct fruity taste is further accentuated by its aroma of wet soil. This makes the bud seem freshly picked, especially when you crush, ground, or combust the buds. These combinations of sweet aromas are subtle in the flavor as it distinguishes its taste from the smell.
The buds of Bubba’s Gift are significantly large and extremely dense. They are covered with orange-brown colored hairs and, when the flowers are ripe, they appear snowy like the buds.
Each of its calyxes are full to the brim with resin while its flashes of purple and green always catch people’s attention.
This is one of the easiest strains to grow throughout the whole cannabis industry. It’s compact and strong, with high yields after just a few weeks. This is what makes it such a great strain for beginners to grow.
Due to its stunning green and royal purple hues, Bubba’s Gift grabs the attention of many enthusiasts making it a staple of many seasoned growers.
Although sturdy, Bubba’s Gift doesn’t like humid climates. Its sheer density can sometimes attract moisture which can develop into mold or mildew.
Nevertheless, with a powerful ventilation system, its growing area can be sufficiently aerated. This also helps the plant dry thoroughly.
You should also thin out the plant by pruning branches or leaves to allow more light to reach the lower-end budding sites. This will give the plant additional nutrition.
Bubba’s Gift is available in a feminized form so you can apply techniques such as Low Stress Training and the Sea of Green to help a full batch of the plants grow to their full potential.
It can be grown indoors with a very short flowering time of around 6 to 7 weeks. If you were to harvest Bubba’s Gift early, it can still produce 14 to 21 ounces of cured buds per square meter.
It can also be grown outdoors with exceptional yields of 35 to 106 ounces of buds. This depends on the climate, location, and skill level of the cultivator. It should blossom from the middle of September to the first week of October.
Bubba’s Gift’s effects take around 15 to 20 minutes to kick in. Most do not notice these effects until after they have set in. Many feel an initial wave of euphoria before a gentle crash into the shores of the mind which develops into a slight buzzing energy.
Most experience a smile as its uplifting buzz brings back good memories. Happiness mellows out to leave a user feeling calm and relaxed. It is best to use at night or during days off due to its strong potency.
Some users experience dehydration or dryness around the eyes and mouth. These can be unavoidable due to the cannabinoids within the marijuana which interfere with the receptors that are responsible for producing moisture. Just stay hydrated during sessions.
