Death Bubba is a new high-quality hybrid. An amazing new strain that might be even better than the sum of its parts.
Those parts are two of the most outstanding marijuana strains in North America – Bubba Kush and Death Star.
During the 1990s Bubba Kush was one of the most famous names in the Californian dope scene, counting Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill and Dr Dre as some of its biggest fans.
The Kush phenotype (its particular genetic form) is one of the most important varieties of cannabis. Bubba Kush displays many of the most characteristic Kush attributes. The plant is thick and aquat and the buds dense and chunky. When burnt, Bubba Kush releases the classic Kush hashish flavours and it carries the aroma of coffee mixed with fruity notes.

But the Bubba Kush high is known for not preventing users from maintaining their focus and performing tasks. The strain is a great choice for those wishing to alleviate the symptoms of stress, insomnia and depression.
Meanwhile, in the Midwest, an indica-dominant hybrid strain with an earthy aroma and an unmistakable a blend of lemon and rubber, started to generate a following amongst weed aficionados. Death Star became well-known for the characteristic, creeping onset of its powerful high that broke over users in waves of relaxed euphoria.
The indica/sativa ratio of Death Star is a balanced 75/25, with its potency due to a notably high THC content. The effects of Death Star are typically positive and calming and it is often used to combat depression and stress.
Finally, then, these famous strains have been successfully bred and the result is Death Bubba. Death Bubba is visually remarkable, with deep purple hues and densely packed with trichomes and terpenes.
Combining Death Star and Bubba Kush has produced an extremely pungent skunk which releases a sweet, earthy smoke. Users describe the high as semi-sedative, which relaxes the user and slowly soothes physical discomfort.

Super Silver Haze was bred by the experts at Green House Seeds using three famous strains – (Northern Lights (indica), Haze (sativa) and Skunk No.1 (hybrid). The result is a 70/30 sativa-dominant strain that contains 18-20% THC and is regularly available in dispensaries across North America.
Super Silver Haze is noted for its long-lasting high that begins by increasing motivation and focus and which may energize many users and cause them to experience more vivid colors and sharper sounds. This then settles down into feelings of pleasant euphoria which soothe the body.
Super Silver Haze is not recommended for those hoping to wind down for the evening. Its propensity to initiate motivation and increase happiness means Silver Haze is often used to counteract depression. When using strains such as Super Silver Haze for medical purposes, precise dosage is important. Edibles made from Silver Haze are available from many online dispensaries.

Later in the high a more calming vibe takes hold. This body relaxation begins tin the neck and moves down the limbs making them heavy. This has been found to be an ideal state for watching a movie or simply chilling out on the couch.
This slow slide into a mellow state makes Green Goddess ideal for using later in the day. It also means it has a number of medical uses such as reducing anxiety and stress, limiting the symptoms of ADHD and soothing nausea.
