Created by Cali Connections, Alien Bubba is an indica strain created by crossing Bubba Kush and Alien Kush. It is known for its potent sedative effects and smooth flavor, and it is a strain that is very popular with fans of strong indicas.
Alien Bubba has fairly large flowers that normally have a tapered shape. The buds are compact, as is common with indicas, and they are a bright shade of green with brown and orange hairs. There is also a covering of crystalline trichomes, which makes the flowers sticky to the touch.
After it has been cured, Alien Bubba has a smell that is similar to damp earth with hints of pine and cedar. When ground, it has a hash-like smell, likely from its OG Kush roots. When burnt, it produces a very smooth smoke that tastes sweet and of wood, with hints of fruit when exhaled.
The high has a gradual onset but once it hits, users often feel as if their senses have been disturbed. There may be visual distortion and time seems to slow down. As such, it results in a pleasant and mellow mind-set, which will not be particularly productive. This means that it is a good strain for when you want to relax at the end of a long day. It is worth noting that couchlock is common.
Medical patients may find it helps with stress, depression and anxiety. It could also help with aches and pains, and may be beneficial for those who struggle with sleep. It is also a good choice for those who are prone to paranoia or who have a low THC tolerance.
Alien Bubba is relatively easy to grow outdoors in Mediterranean-like climates. Indoors it has a flowering time of 9 to 10 weeks and produces a moderate yield.
