Bubba Kush is a strain with a thousand stories behind it. While not as lore-intensive as an OG Kush, Bubba Kush tends to bring about heated conversations across the cannabis world.

While we’ve had the opportunity to speak with “Bubba/Matt” who tells a tale that stems from connections in Florida and ties the Bubba to OG heritage (Triangle to OG bag seeds), we’ve come to understand that its true genetic origins are unknown.

Bubba Kush’s specific leaf structure, stem thickness, density of flower sites and limited node spacing, and dark hues make it stand out in any garden. Specifically speaking, it’s known for large bud structures with hues ranging from purple to green.


Unknown: [Likely old world semi-arid mountain region]


Katsu Bubba – orgnkid was the first to bring Bubba online that we ever saw. That was around 2000/2001 at cw. he was touting it, showing fat stacks of cash, his grows, etc. As far as we’ve been told, he sold a cut of Bubba to GCM and GCM sold it to Katsu. That is the Katsu cut, aka, orgnkid’s green phenotype. Orgnkid first obtained this Bubba around 2000/2001 and got the OG slightly thereafter. Mint Bubba S1- ECK06’s s1 phenotype from the first batch of Bubba Kush s1’s orgnkid posted to the bay. Purple Bubba S1 – This is a cut orgnkid scored from a SFV club owner that was an s1 of the original Bubba cut the owner of the club sourced (whichever that is). The club owner was scared of the dudes he got it from and knew not to break their rules. But there was a way around it so he could make cuts and buds available to his club. So he makes some s1 seeds from the Bubba, pulls out the yielding, club nugget purple Bubba pheno. Now he has an “unheld” cut of the Bubba. THE REAL PRE-98/PRE2K1 – in 2004/5 or so we obtained the above purple and green bubbas from orgnkid through a mutual friend. We also got a cutting from our good friend in norcal (the true pre98).

For the sake of everyone online that had different cuts back then, we put some info in a Bubba thread much like this one where we grew all three of them side by side and compared. We labeled the orgnkid/katsu the GREEN PHENO/2k1. We labeled the ClubS1 the PURPLE PHENO/2k1. And we labeled the Norcal one, pre2k1, because at that time, we hadn’t asked our buddy ALL the info on the norcal cut.. And we were told orgnkid’s were obtained in 2k1. So anyways, after a few more pages in that thread at CW, people started getting the pre98 moniker from the kalimist mixed up with the pre2k1 bubba designation. So after probing our friend, he told us he got it from a glassblower in socal around 1998. After posting that, the pre2k1 pretty much started getting called the pre98. The pre-98 is shabud’s cut. Swerve’s Pre-98 – We don’t know where swerve obtained this cut, you would have to ask him. But he has told us that he termed his “pre98” because the cut he obtained, reminded him of the the Bubba he was smoking in 1998-2000 in SFV.


Very thick flowers ranging from dark black and purple to green depending on the “cut” of this strain. Remaining constant, Bubba produces Kush style cannabis flowers leaning from golf balls to swollen hearts in shape.


The aroma of Bubba Kush is one of those unique scents you will never forget. It often borders on an acrid ammonia smell, but always emits deep, earthy notes. From hints of coffee to dirty feet, Bubba Kush hits the nose a bit differently for everyone.


Depending on the pheno you may receive chocolate notes to ammonia notes, but regardless the smoke with be thick and heavy. Flavors range on the earthy and bodily spectrum (yes, gross for food but lovely for cannabis) and well grown Bubba should provide flavor through water and the end of the bowl.


Heavily narcotic effects, with the Katsu cut being a bit less sleep inducing although still a very heavy body high.

About this strain

Bubba Kush

Bubba Kush is an indica strain that has gained notoriety in the US and beyond for its heavy tranquilizing effects. Sweet hashish flavors with subtle notes of chocolate and coffee come through on the exhale, delighting the palate as powerful relaxation takes over. From head to toe, muscles ease with heaviness as dreamy euphoria blankets the mind, crushing stress while bringing happy moods. Bubba Kush exhibits a distinctive, bulky bud structure with hues that range from forest green to pale purple.

Bubba’s stocky plant stature and bulky bud structure suggest Afghani descent, but its genetic origins aren’t certain. The breeder whom this strain was named after states that Bubba Kush emerged just after 1996, when an OG Kush pollinated an unknown indica strain obtained in New Orleans. The mother plant was supposedly Northern Lights, but the genetically ambiguous indica was simply called “Bubba.” Bubba Kush has flourished from its California roots ever since.
