Bubba Kush (The Greenhouse)


There were only a handful of coffee shops in Amsterdam that had some Kush on their menu’s. So when I saw Bubba Kush on the menu at The Greenhouse, I was anxious to give it a try and see how it compares to the killer Kush I smoke at home.

From: The Greenhouse (Coffee Shop)

Grade: A-

Type: Indica

Price: Appx. $10/Gram 5 gram max.

Looks: Like your typical Kush. Light green nugs with bright orange hairs and thick leaves.

Smell: Mellow Kush aroma. Hint of citrus which is unusual for a good Kush in my experience.

Taste: Cured very well so the taste was spot on. Very "green" chronic taste.

Buzz Type: Hard hitting indica buzz hit me right when I took my first hit. Just what the doctor ordered!

Buzz Length: Short. I am not sure if it was all the weed I was smoking that killed the buzz or if this weed was just not that strong. I was surprised at how quickly I sobered up after having smoked a little over a gram about an hour earlier.

Overall: A good indica that got me really high but wore of too quick. But I’d rather be tore up for an hour than have a good head change for 2.

Buzz Report: While sitting in The Greenhouse getting ripped one afternoon I decided to sample some of their Kush. I smoke about 0.5g in their house bong and the rest in a joint. I was REALLY high for about an hour. I smoked a little hash but nothing else. The buzz wore off and left me wanting more.  –Chubbs

    Looks tasty. Sucks about the buzz length though.

    So I’m guessing the Kush you get here is better?

    Yeah, the Kush here in SoCal is much better than the Kush in Amsterdam.

    But on the flip side, the Haze in Amsterdam is much better than any Haze I have ever smoked here in the states.

        bomshankar123: Yes I have. It’s a great strain. Pretty much everything from Amnesia is good. (I tried it all)

    smoking a strain that I actualy get from a friend for 45 an eighth that is abubba crossed with something sour and its incredible absolute top shelf. If I was to buy this at a club it would definitely be in the ridiculous range.

    The truth about this strain, along with about half a dozen others that greenhouse serves up is they are not the real deal. What I mean by that is they come up with strains that are similar and call it that. This has been a hot topic for some time on icmag. Greenhouse admits this and for whatever reason they think It shouldn’t be an issue. I personally think that if I order a coke and get a pepsi in a coke can I’m going to get pissed for them not telling me what I’m buying, but hey, I guess so goes an unregulated market full of unknowing tourists. Hope I didn’t ruin it for anyone.

      I find it weird you are calling the bubba kush and chemdawg.etc that they have fake. Actually they have someone (apothecary travel/seeds) that is a mmj provider in cali that they actually got the clones from so i dont know where people are calling it fake especially when there are vids of apothecary saying its the real deal for greenhouse.

    Yeah that kinda screwy I purchased some Greenhouse Alaskan Ice they said it was the best cannabis at 21+ THC. Well I flowered that damn plant for 12+ weeks indoor and it wasn’t even close to being done so I cut it down. I also grew Greenhouse Super Lemon Haze, and Lemon Skunk they came out absolutely superb. I have recently got a hold of some of their Kings Kush hopefully it will have a longer buzz length than bubba kush does. Just because they have movie stars and sick musicians on the home doesn’t mean shit!!

    I love Bubba Kush, it lasts long, that must just be bad bubba, because good bubba goes for 2 hours

    the strongest aspect obviously doesnt last 2 hours, but imo, after 8 years of vaporizing multi times every day, ive come to the conclusion that for nerve pain, Bubba Kush is the best there is….I happily pay 300 a zip

    • says:

      on Nov 1, 2009

      romm agreed, I use it for nerve pain associated with CMT, and it lights my pain spots(all over) like a christmas tree…start glowing in a sense…im sure you understand what I mean

      i find bubba weak and lacking. different strokes for the folks eh///

    on Nov 1, 2009

    i think you had a bad batch…I go after bubba kush like its the only option…I love it…it destroys my pain, its amazing I can smoke any other strain, then have ONE hit out the volcano bag of bubba and instantly pain is gone and I feel amazing for hours.

    im just saying the kush around Glenview and Des Plaines, illinois is the best kush in the U.S. but you gata find the right people/ right person

      …I so love that you silly americans think that the best kush/hipster strains are in cali….haha…dream on amorican. your backwater country is waaayyy behind what’s happening in both Amster and Vansterdam.

    on Nov 8, 2009

    yeah I find that impossible to believe…the best kush is in california…best person to ask is B Real, guy has tried weed everywhere, and he needs his OG Kush from Cali, said it branched out to amsterdam recently which he hadnt seen 3-4 years ago, but its still not the same. take that for what its worth, it was on a video blog of him in amsterdam via twitter

    I just bought a cloned Bubba Kush plant. What is the THC % level for it? I was told it would take up to 3 months for harvesting. Does that sound right? I have a Super Silver Haze plant that is supposed to harvest at 65-70 days. I am new at this (and loving it). Go Colorado! Also, the roots seems to be surfacing a bit on the SS Haze. Is that a concern?
    Thank you my fellow growers.

      on Feb 5, 2012

      Bubba Kush is a very potent strain with a THC level of 18%. The Much Higher levels of CBN in this strain is what the medicinal users prefer though, because this chemical produces the pain relieving feeling that they prefer. as for harvesting that sounds about right depending on how long your willing to let them veg(the longer you go the more youll get!!) and if the roots are on the surface it may meen that when you transplanted them you didnt put the roots down into the dirt deep enough. i would recommend adding another 2 in layer of topsoil. nothing with added nutrients

    the taste is great,the smell is something id like my whole house to smell like, great for lysol. the performance- a good indica but length is terrible sober up in an hour and a half with a few bowls, all and all isnt worth the money.

    As I live in the area of Il. that dudley lives in I can’t agree with him on this being the kush capital of the u.s. I have to say that there is some out of this world kind of all kinds out here, but we don’t have any kind of network like there is in cali, you do have to know the right people in that sinse, or sense I mean haha!

    Looking back I also now have a thought about the comment from dudley. I smoked some Bubba a couple of days ago and it was the best kush ever hands down!!! Just kidding but it was some bomb ass pre 98 that knocked my ass down for three hrs from three one hitters and from three mini bong hits i was baked for about four hours so it did have more legs then the greenhouse from above. What ever with the whole thing. Lost on in five with only five eps. left! Time to burn some sativa!!!

    if it takes you a “few bowls” of a strain to get high, your either smoking pinhead sized bowls or your dope is shit. ive been breeding and growing now for over 30 years, and i dont have oned single strain that wont knock you on your ass after 2 hits, and ive been known to have 40+ strains going at one single time. ive got 3 original strains that im working on right now for release late spring/early summer 2010 in northern cal that are true 1 hitters. they are purple martian, sticky orgasm and purple meanie. keep your eyes peeled for them.

  25. says:

    (oldmanpot) i sure will keep my eyes peeled man for sticky orgasm that just sounds like sacred ganja! Awsome pics- thats some bubba!

    i want some bubba kush right now and looking at these pictures doesnt help much. i cant wait to go to amsterdam and smoke down on some of their best buds.

    on May 1, 2010

    Just don’t order from DR. Chronic because they will not send you the real deal…. they are corrupt.
    Hey oldmanpot… the best growers dont brag.

    Adressing the problem with genetic verification is a new website I came across emaraldtrianglebuds.com they offer genotype and fingerprinting to verify a strian is the real deal perhaps filling a niche?

    on Aug 14, 2010

    one of the tastiest, most dank weeds on the planet, hyped so much for a reason, 95% of the time mislabeled. If you can find an authentic/properly grown strain, you will probably keep going back until it’s gone.

    Been smoking for years but you have to come to new york uptown washington hights area to find the best haze in the world guarenteed… Its soo hard to explain but ive had haze in cali from stores n haze in amsterdam from a couple diff shops but nothing compares!!

    @Flints Finest- you are right! Go to any site that offers Greenhouse SOUVENIER seeds ( :) ) and look at their Bubba Kush genetics! (Bubblegum x Kush) sounds like a load of crap to me! I got so hopeful when I saw that a Bubba was being offered, but if perfection was as simple as crossing “Kush” and Bubblegum then perfection would be all over the place.

    IMO nothing pisses me off more than the standalone word “Kush”….

    Purchased Bubba kush from Greenhouse seeds and i have no complaints. Ive smoked over 25yrs born and raised in socal smoked what claimed to be the best kush goin around and hands down Greenhouse’s bubba kush was right there with them not the most resious plant but the high is a knock out and for me last a long time i have glacoma and smoke everyhour so i think i would know what good and whats not. And all you people claiming that it dosent last long well i guantee what you were smokin was grown indoors but thats a whole nother subject

    on Mar 18, 2011

    Smoking some buba atm. The high, I give the same overall. A- type of kush. Does not compare to the c99. But id say a lot smoother than o.g

    Smoking in Amsterdam is very different from smoking at home, with all your habits.
    In amsterdam, you want to try everything that’s on the menu so you can easily pick 6-7 different strains in the morning and 5 others in the afternoon. So you smoke pure sativas , pure indicas, tasty hybrids and the result is that you very quickly don’t feel anything at all : neither effects, nore taste
    And smoking at a table of a coffeshop or in your hotel room is fun the first day, but then you just want to keep your stash for when you come home
    So my advice of european that lives 200 km from Amsterdam is

    1)Go to Amsterdam in summer , smoking freely outside, at a coffeshop table is much more enjoayble than when it’s freezing or raining (which is very common in the Netherlands)

    2)Go there for like 1 or 2 days, maximum, just to buy, visit a bit. (Remember that most coffeshop respect the rule of 5 grams maximum per person, so if you need like 100 grams for your whole week and you’re 5 friends, you’ll have to chose at least 4 good coffeshops)

    3)Rent a car, there in Amsterdam. So that you have the possibility to travel and expand your trip. Belgium is near,
    Germany and its incredible nightclubs too, France, Italy, Spain
    You’ll have your weed and mushrooms with you during the whole trip it can be very fun. On your return to amsterdam, if you have nothing left, you’ll be glad to restock

    Remember that weed is depenalized in Belgium, Spain, Switzerland and few other european countries and that you will NEVER be bothered by cops in Europe or searched if you don’t mess around. Never ever. So that’s quite simple : you can discreetly smoke outside in countries where weed is depenalized( nobody cares, everyone does it and if cops catch you smoking, they will just throw your stash, you ll never be fined) and you mustnt smoke outside in other countries like France, but again, they’re not allowed to search you if they don’t catch you smoking, driving completely drunk or messing around.

    Have a nice trip

    I love everyone saying this strain will leave you wrecked, crushed by a sack of bricks, stomped by a raging bull. Why? This strain feels relaxing, slightly narcotic buzzy, and relieving. I wouldn’t say it wrecks you, don’t be confused by these ridiculous reviews. These people probably have never smoked Bubba Kush. It’s a good strain with a medium length buzz, lasts about an hour to hour and a half. Big deal, put another bud in the bowl you cheap skate. If you don’t have enough then grow it your self and support the people who do.

    I picked up a half oz of Bubba Kush today from a friend who grows for $100. This strain is perfect for pain and insomnia. The buds are large and dense- covered in trichomes.
