Bubba OG is an indica-dominant hybrid (20:80 sativa/indica ratio) and has low CBD levels of about 0.4%. As a result of this, it isn’t ideal for patients who need that chemical. But THC levels in this strain are very high, topping 22% and possibly even 25%. That makes for a lazy, potent body high that reduces stress, sparks hunger, and encourages sleep.
Those body effects make Bubba OG great for treating lack of appetite, chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety, as well as headaches and depression. Dry mouth is a fairly common side effect, as are red eyes, but most other negatives are rare. This strain has a strong, pungent earthy flavor with a floral aroma.
It’s not exactly clear how the strain came to be, though it almost certainly owes some of its genes to the original OG Kush, a supremely powerful sativa-dominant hybrid that’s popular almost everywhere.
Bubba OG, by contrast, is usually found in California, Arizona, Colorado, and British Columbia. It occasionally appears on the black market, but it generally isn’t as sought after as some of its Kush cousins. Still, it’s a favorite of many medical users.
