Pre-98 Bubba Kush is an indica dominant hybrid strain with 85% indica dominance to a mere 15% sativa. Its THC levels average between 20% to 22% on average. Its exact parents remain unknown despite having been circulated in cannabis markets since the 80s-90s. Its origins, however, are pinpointed to derive from Afghani or Pakistani landraces, though creators of the famed and loved Bubba Kush strain, a pure indica originating from the Hindu Kush mountains, have also laid claim to its conception.
Appearance & Aroma
The nugs of Pre-98 Bubba Kush are densely packed and elongated, though round in shape. It is predominantly a medium green, similar to olives, with small pale rusty orange pistils. Its crystal trichomes are tiny but generous, coating the nugs in a nice and frosty layer. Its aromatic profile is noticeably refreshingly earthy and herbal, though skunky and pungent at the same time, with a hint of sweet citrus. When smoked and exhaled, notes of coffee can be tasted, complemented by light citrus and wood. The strain is noted to have quite a harsh smoke, so it’s not the most discreet strain!
