Bubba Kush is a strain that is well known for its “tranquilizing effects” (per Leafly), giving it great potential benefit for patients suffering from insomnia and pain. This particular distillate from GrowHealthy has received a lot of praise on the various Florida Trees subreddits over the past few months for its taste and potent effects. I grabbed a half gram syringe of Bubba Kush with my last delivery order, and it has definitely lived up to the hype in my experience. If you’re looking for an absolute knockout indica strain distillate that has potent effects on the body, this is the one to get.
Parent Strains: OG Kush x Unknown strain from New Orleans

As with my other reviews, I rate this product on three main criteria. Those three scores will be averaged for a final “overall score” and basic description of the product quality.
This Bubba Kush distillate probably tastes more like vaporized cannabis flower than any other distillate strain I’ve tried. The cannabis taste is very obvious – an earthy, woody taste with a sweet background. There’s also notes of coffee, chocolate, or some other cocoa-based product that I detect here as well. Some other patients I’ve talked with described the taste as having a honeysuckle-like quality present as well; I could see where one can pick this up. Cannabis terpenes really taste much better than anything else to me; I suppose this is because flower has always been my preferred form of cannabis, and the cannabis terpenes really do a nice job of emulating the taste of their parent strains when added to distillate.
Taste Rating: 4.10/5.00
Bubba Kush distillate comes in the same syringe that all other distillates I’ve tried, with an easily removable rubber cap on the bottom, allowing for easy filling of a VFire pod or your empty cartridge of choice.
The distillate itself is about as thick, perhaps a bit thicker, than Truclear. It vaporizes well, leaving the flavor pretty well intact all the way through to the exhale. It seems like everything about this product is at least fairly good quality.
Vapor/Product Quality Rating: 4.00/5.00
Ever since I joined the Florida medical marijuana registry, I’ve been searching for a strain that has those classic indica effects everyone talks about – hitting the body like a ton of bricks and locking it into the couch for a solid hour or two. Though I’ve had some good indica strains in my year as a patient, I still haven’t found one that totally knocks me out for sleep; I haven’t found one that I simply can’t stay awake on.
Bubba Kush changed that. My first experience with it went like this: I took one 3-second drag from my Trustik (VFire pod filled with distillate). Between 5 and 10 minutes later, the first full body effects hit – hard. The best way I can describe it is like having a heated, weighted blanket draped over your entire body. There’s really no desire to move around or do anything; sitting or lying in place is much more desirable.
I went ahead and took a second quick drag. That was game over; not long after the second toke, my head began to feel really heavy. It was bedtime at that point. I fell asleep fast and stayed asleep through much of the night.
The effects I’ve gotten over the nights since that first time have been consistent – it’s always much easier to fall asleep after a drag or two from the Trustik. I’ll have to keep some of this strain around simply to fight insomnia. I could see it being a great strain for pain relief as well.
Effects Rating: 4.20/5.00
Overall Rating: 4.10/5.00
GrowHealthy definitely has the best distillates, at least of all the different ones that I’ve tried. I would best describe Bubba Kush distillate as an “excellent” product, and highly recommend it for anyone looking to fight insomnia. It works for me, and for many of the other patients I’ve talked to as well. This is hands down the heaviest indica product I’ve yet to try from the Florida medical cannabis industry.
