    this is something that i've been debating on recently….has anyone grown it?

    or could anyone recommend the best Bubba Kush in their opinion?

    I'm looking for something as close as possible to the original bubba….as i don't live on the west coast and never got to try bubba before.

    I've heard mix things about CC'S Bubba, and this is coming from someone who has ran the 818 for 2+ years, and just ordered a pack of Larry seeds, so I'm not a CC hater.

    I would check out Dr.Greenthumbs Bubba.

    Try a pack of Loud Seeds - Pre 98 Bubba there are a few people here who have done it and I have a pack waiting to be put into rotation. While you could put me on the CC hater list I have good reason to never want to play with that companies genetics again. I have grown over 10 strains of CC and while some are good the instability issues that come with their beans is just not right.

    Who knows though, some people find that one plant that is so good they don't mind picking the bananas off.

    I'm growing out a pack of cc bubbas right now. I tried a pick n mix from them got a female it was good But I'm after the coffee smelling girl plus I wanted a male to run some projects of my own. I was going to try and do a pick and mix at the attitude with all the bubba from loud, cc, hso, dinafem, to see who had the best but never pulled the trigger.

    818 has been my favorite strain from a cultivation standpoint. Great yield, smell, taste, and potent.

    Im actually searching for a good male. Popping 12 Rug Burn Regulars, 10 Lee Roy Regs, and 10 Larry regs in search of a new stud. I'm sure I'll find a keeper female or 2 but mainly just want a good structured male to hit my GG#4 with.

    I have grown a pre-98 bubba kush from a clone only unknown (to me) breeder source, as well as the Cali Connection Pre 98 Bubba BX2. The BX2 is by far the best for me. In soil, the BX2 and regular bubba were comparable in yield, but in hydro, holy shit. with hydro, the bubba yielded 45.9 grams, which was the same in soil, which caused me to toss the genetics and no longer keep the mother.

    The bx2 on the other hand, like I said, holy shit. In soil, it yieled about what bubba yielded, slightly under 50 grams. But in hydro, I will post pictures of one bx2 plant. It has not been weighed, but I am guessing 6 ounces (4 full mason jars.) The plant has an awesome gray/purple look to it, it smells/tastes like some sort of creamy coffee beverage. It is not a skunky funky strain, so I think if odor is a problem, this doesn't have the skunky weed smell while growing.

    It is dank as can be. Cali BX2 is good. Oh yeah, it hermies. LOL there's always a catch. However, my Cali 818 Headband hermies as well. Both these hermies do not have bananas that open that often, and when they do, they have not made any seeds. I got zero seeds from the looks of trimming that one plant, but I did encounter probably 5 pollen sacks spread throughout the lower portion of the plant. I keep the headband and bx2 mothers because they are dank as all hell, I am ok they pop a weiner here and there. I think that is common, I know it's not a light leak.

    In soil, five gallon buckets, I ran two Pre 98 Bubba, with yields 35.25 grams and 45.84 grams. Soil BX2, one plant, 46.95 grams. Soil 818 Headband/Sour OG got me 4 ounces plus a quarter of frosty wispy crap buds.

    In hydro, I ran three 818 headband. I will post pics of the monster, directly under the light, which I will chop soon, probably over 8 ounces. The other two were off to the side, one is about 4 ounces and the other was a limpy one ouncer, completely smothered from the light and in a corner. The funny thing is, the limpy one ounce plant is SUPER smelly like lemon pinesol more so than the others, it is fluffy and sticky. I ran two BX2 in hydro, one was the above pictured, which is 6 ounces plus, and the other was only one mason jar full. I haven't weighed most of these yet. I equate a full mason jar to 1.5 to 2.25 ounces, depending on density.

    I ran the CC Grape Kush freebie (pre 98 bubba x grape romulan), it was a Bubba leaning pheno. Slowest plant I have ever had in veg. Topped, tied and into a 3 or 4 gallon pot. I think I pulled a whopping 17 grams! Everything else in that cycle blessed me with an avg of 35 Gs+ with half the veg time!

    Pretty plant, good smoke.... I killed off the clones shortly after harvest. <~ I dont do that very often

    you know what, that's definitely something i didn't think to note down in my grow journal, the day i noticed their gray/purple color. i tried looking at old pics but the HPS makes it all look the same. i would say the last three or four weeks, they were the gray/purple color. also, at harvest, the lower immature buds were noticeably lighter green and not so much gray/purple. all mixed together it looks beautiful.


    i ran it 9.5 weeks from light switch.
