Name: Platinum Bubba Kush

Dispensary: Medstar (West Hollywood)

Grade: B+/B

Type: Mostly Indica

Lineage: Unknown. A variation of Bubba Kush.

Price: $14/gram, $45/8th, $90/ quarter, $175 half ounce

Looks: Chunky, leafy nugs. Dark and light green buds with a few burnt orange hairs and heavy trichome coverage. Brittle to the touch, but stickier when broken up. This batch could have been trimmed better.

Smell: Musty, grassy, sweet and spicy with a hint of mint. Smells like a proper batch of Platinum Bubba Kush.

Taste: A musty, minty and slightly sweet flavor. Slightly harsh vapor with heavy lung expansion.

Buzz: Heavy, numbing buzz. Clear headed, relaxing, sedating and mildly euphoric. Couch lock-y in high doses. Best for the late evening and for sleep.

Summary: A pretty good batch of Platinum Bubba. The buds could have been trimmed better and the taste was not as rich as the better batches I’ve sampled. The buzz lacked some personality.

Another fresh batch of Platinum Bubba Kush. This one from Medstar in West Hollywood.
