About Rockstar x Bubba Kush
Rockstar Strain Information:
Taking second place in a High Times Cannabis Cup hardly denotes a second rate strain, RockStar took second place in the 2012 hybrid Category. The strain is not to be confused with BC RockStar or Rockstar OG. The maternal strain chosen by the breeders, Bonguru Beans, is Soma A+’s strain Rockbud. Rockbud is a conglomeration of Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean, a landrace Indica from Afghanistan and Afghani Hawaii. Bonguru bred the mother with Sensi Star, a mostly Indica hybrid from Paradise Seeds. Easing tension, loosening muscles and causing users to feel happy, RockStar is an Indica that does not strongly act as a sedative.
The earth and citrus flavors of RockStar may be used to deliver potent pain and muscle spasm relief. Its euphoric effects may be used to help deal with anxiety, depression and stress. Some do find that it helps them rest easy. Others use it for migraines and nausea.
Bubba Kush Strain Information:
Bubba Kush is a heavy indica hybrid that enjoys very wide popularity. The strain’s original L.A. breeder claims that while one parent was an OG Kush plant, the other was an unnamed Northern Lights phenotype brought back from Mardi Gras in New Orleans; this unnamed mother strain affectionately came to be known as “Bubba,” and has since been lost. Prior to 1998, Bubba Kush was only available as a clone, but it has since been replicated so that its seeds could be packaged and sold. Bubba Kush is a classic indica with a solid sedative high that leaves users relaxed but still functional. It has a typically high THC content, ranging from 15% to 22%.
Bubba Kush has small to medium sized buds that have the dense bud structure characteristic of indica varieties. The leaves are dark green and can sometimes show shades of purple, the result of anthocyanin pigments having been activated by cold temperatures during the growing process. This is a very resinous strain — a coating of white trichomes covers the colorful leaves, and are even visible on the inside when buds are broken open. The flowers have a vague aroma of coffee or cocoa, with some slight fruitiness beneath. When burnt, Bubba Kush smells more hashy and spicy, as might be expected of a Kush, with smoke that is fairly harsh and cough-inducing. Notably, this is one strain whose purple flowers do not result in a grape-like taste: the pigments that determine Bubba Kush’s color do not affect flavor. The taste is mostly dank, with some sweetness and a peppery kick in the exhale. This is also a particularly pungent strain — users concerned about discretion should plan accordingly.
