Ok I purchased these seeds from Attitude and germinated them around January 2012. Here's the link to the seeds: https://www.cannabis-seeds-bank.co.uk/cali-connection-pre-98-bubba-bx2-seeds/prod_235.html I was trying for a harvest prior to warm up out here and I missed the window. In 2012 we heated up early and stayed hot late. So I did lose an entire crop due to the heat and mis-diagnosing thrips as a nutrient deficiency (which it does cause). However my goal was to keep my genetics alive through the heat of a Mojave summer and I did. So around 10/1 I flipped my clones to flower I just finished week 11 and am pulling down my plants a plant at a time. I just smoked my first dried Cali Connection Pre98 Bubba Kush BX2. I have had other Pre98 Bubba from an elite clone only strain raised by a friend who supplied me my medical marijuana free. It was his incredible smoke that got me hunting for a BK because it allowed me to cut my Morphine down to 1/3 of what it was! So here's the images: The first image is a mixed pan of BK's and Nirvana's AI they are in Sunshine Mix #4 Advanced, under a 600 Watt HPS. The second image is a lone BK that will be coming down today. Finally is one of the Bubba Mother's in the veg tent under T5. So my report on CC's BK backcross. These plants went through hell. If 120 degree temps, 70% humidity, attack of the thrips and me on a learning curve doesn't push them to hermie I don't think they will hermie. I've stopped looking for seeds now (week 12 flower). The BK does not produce large yields. It has rock hard golf ball size nuggets which is comparable to the BK that was donated to me. So it certainly looked similar. During the grow the plants have the most horrendous stink, sort of a nasty cat piss smell. After just 3 days in a jar it gives way to this wonderful strong lemony scent. I've been harvesting them one by one hanging them in the veg tent above the lights and then jarring them in 1/2 gallon mason jars. So the first cola was dry enough to go into a jar. After a few days in the jar I decided to try it and smoked some last night. I took just 2 puffs (I tend to be very lightweight). The taste of the smoke was very good it was a sort of subtle sweet flavor I couldn't quite put a name to. I waited. I was amazed by the crystal clear soaring euphoria from this. This was very similar to IV Fentanyl during an anesthetic induction sequence! Next my body went relatively numb shortly after that I fell asleep. There wasn't any horrible body 'buzzing' and itching I get from the Nirvana AI's (sativa cross). The BK's don't generate any paranoia either (which was one of the big reasons I stopped using any pot back in 1976, all sativa). So over all this compared favourably to CG's BK even with my amateurish grow methods. I highly recommend this strain for help with pain, decreasing reliance on morphine and insomnia (although the giggles while watching MIB3 kept me awake for a bit). I can't wait to try this after a few months in jars and see what it's like. As for all the controversy over Cali Connection and Swerve specifically I have no conclusion except to say my experience with CC's back crossed BK was wonderful and I'm getting ready for generation 4 clones. Although this is not a quantity strain it's quality and I plan to keep growing it as it works for my pain.
