God Bud is a strain engineered to near perfection. It has a relatively quick onset with a long-lasting high that allows connoisseurs to revel in its effects for hours on end. Not to mention, it has a branchy structure that produces multiple budding sites.
Still, the strain can be made better. And, it was to this end that Jordan of the Islands decided to pair it with another legend. Pre-98 Bubba Kush is a long-time favorite among cannabis enthusiasts. Its coffee-flavored smoke delivers a stress-crushing high without incapacitating its users thus negating God Bud’s hallucinogenic buzz.
God’s Bubba is an amalgamation of its parents. Its onset is faster compared to most Indica-leaning strains and boasts a cerebral element that naturally uplifts the mind. Meanwhile, its comedown is heavily tranquilizing that, after three or four hours, users eventually become too drowsy. The strain also has great therapeutic potential because of its head-to-toe high.
