Black Bubba is an indica-dominant cross of Bubba Kush and Black Russian. The resulting buds carry a sweet aroma with subtle fruit notes that produce earthy flavors of hash and pine. The relaxing indica effects calm body pains, stimulate the appetite, and are known to sedate the body into a state of couchlock.
Black Bubba’s sedation can also be useful for many medical cannabis patients. It may temporarily take the edge off of certain symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. It can also soothe physical pain, whether that pain is temporary and injury-related, or chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia or lupus. Black Bubba’s anticonvulsive properties may even counteract the symptoms of afflictions like restless leg syndrome. In the right conditions, this strain can work against insomnia, lulling smokers into a deep and satisfying sleep. Because it is not known to induce intense, recursive patterns of thinking, this strain may be a good choice for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia.
