The Bubba OG is a potent strain which is a part of the OG family and is a popular choice for those who like hybrid strains. It was developed by Dr. Greenthumb Seeds, a group of Canadian producers by crossing Pre-98 Bubba Kush with Ghost OG.
Bubba OG is a top-notch indica strain that will surely help alleviate stress and also provide relief from pain. All this is achieved while maintaining clarity and a focused mindset. This is possible due to its high THC levels ranging from 15 to 27 percent.
This strain of cannabis has clusters of flowers in small to medium sizes. The buds are also clustered together densely, as is usually the case with indica strains. It has spring-like bright green leaves with reddish-orange pistils in them. Mostly, you can also find patches of purple, blue, and green on the flowers. This happens when Bubba OG is cultivated in a cold climate and as such the anthocyanin pigment is stimulated. On top of the flowers, you can find a layer of white, translucent trichomes too.

You can also smell fresh pine when the flowers are broken or ground. Upon combustion, Bubba OG emits a harsh and thick smoke that can tickle the palate and may cause coughing. When exhaled, the smoke has a sweet taste similar to ripe fruit but can also have a hint of a diesel-like taste.
