Pink Bubba is a Kush-descended strain that leans toward the indica end of the spectrum. This hybrid is a cross between Pink Kush and the popular Bubba Kush and offers consumers a dank, earthy aroma alongside extremely sedative effects. Pink Bubba’s THC content has been measured at between 18% and 23%.
Trimmed flowers of Pink Bubba are distinguished by a medium to large size and a chunky, roughly spherical shape. They adhere in pebbly clusters that maintain a compact internal bud structure. The flowers’ relatively small leaves are a bright yellowish green and are twisted through with dark, rust-colored pistils. Finally, icy white trichomes cover all visible surfaces of these dense flowers, making them very sticky.
When properly cured, Pink Bubba’s flowers give off an earthy scent, similar to wet leaves and soil. A second whiff may detect some floral notes passed on from parent strain Pink Kush. Cracking open or grinding up these thick buds, meanwhile, releases a hashy, peppery odor that betrays this strain’s Kush lineage. Pink Bubba burns with a heavy and acrid smoke when combusted and may trigger some coughing or watery eyes. On the exhale, this smoke tastes woodsy with a slight floral accent. Those toking in public may want to take some precautions, as Pink Bubba can be a particularly pungent smoke.
Pink Bubba’s high can be a creeper that may not show itself until 10 to 15 minutes after ingestion. Eventually, smokers experience a feeling of constriction around the temples and lower forehead; some flushing in the cheeks is also reported. As these strange sensations subside, though, users may notice some visual or auditory distortions, as well as a strange feeling of time moving more slowly. These changes in sensory perception can contribute to a hazy psychedelic mood that’s best suited to lounging with some moody music. Other than this dreamy head high, Pink Bubba doesn’t do much in the way of mental stimulation, and users looking to use the strain to aid concentration or boost productivity may be disappointed.
