Strain Review: Ghost Bubba

Spread the love

Ghost Bubba is an indica-dominant hybrid strain known for its high THC content and deep scent. Although its origin remains unknown, it is said to be a cross between Ghost OG and Bubba Kush, both of which are highly potent indica-dominant hybrids with sedating effects.

Apart from the obvious calming and euphoric effects we all love about it, Ghost Bubba has a lot more to offer. Read on to learn more about this popular strain.


Ghost Bubba has characteristically small buds, which cling together in thick, popcorn-like structures. As an indica-dominant hybrid, its leaves are typically small and tend to curl inwards towards their central stems. They also boast a deep-green colour with shades of purple due to an abundance of anthocyanins—pigments in the strain’s genetics.

The buds have an earthy, woodsy aroma, with hints of pine. They also produce a citrus tang with a sweet overtone. When you grind them up, the buds yield the flavour of spice and hash, most probably passed on from Ghost Bubba’s Kush background. When smoked, the strain gives off smooth and easily palatable smoke.


Ghost Bubba has an earthy yet sweet-tasting aroma that often feels pungent and sugary on the first inhale. The smoke generally tastes like lavender and sweet tea and leaves a citrus aftertaste on your tongue when you exhale. 


Ghost Bubba’s high takes some time to kick in—usually about 10 to 15 minutes. However, once it kicks in, the strain induces an artistic and inspired state of mind, making it a favourite among artists looking for inspiration. That said, its high THC content (15 percent to 23 percent) induces a strong body high. So, you might want to go slow or avoid it altogether if you have a lot of things on your to-do list.

At its peak, the strain boosts blood pressure in the head and face, so you might expect to feel a little twitching in your temples followed by flushing cheeks. As these effects become less intense, you may become aware of some changes in your perception. Bright colours and sounds may become more intense. And if you have a low tolerance to weed, you may also experience trippy phenomena like flattening of your visual depth perception. 

These characteristic psychedelic effects make Ghost Bubba perfect for indoor use since the sensory effects induce a dreamlike mindset. Many users like to take advantage of its sensory effects to enjoy a visually engaging movie or atmospheric music, which tends to enhance the strain’s effects.

As time passes by, the strain’s physical effects start to emerge. You may feel a soothing sensation in your muscles, which often tends to weigh down your limbs and eyelids. This makes the strain especially suitable for lazy tasks like binge-watching and snaking. It also presents a fun way to pass the time with like-minded companions as you enjoy giggles and interesting conversation with the strain’s laid-back energy. 

Medical Benefits

The benefits of Ghost Bubba transcend its mind-blowing inspirational effects; it has some potential medical benefits as well. For starters, its calming properties can help alleviate stress, depression, and anxiety.

And due to its high THC content, Ghost Bubba is also effective in relieving physical aches and pains for both short-term and long-term illnesses. It also boasts anti-inflammatory properties that come in handy in fighting everyday irritations like stomach upsets and cramps. 

Patients undergoing chemotherapy for cancer treatment and other conditions that make people lose appetite may also benefit from the munchies it induces.

Possible Adverse Effects

Ghost Bubba is very potent. This, coupled with its intense calming effects, can leave you feeling tired and couch-locked. It might even knock you out if you take it in moderation. And there’s the possibility of paranoia, dizziness, and even hallucinations.

The high THC content in the strain may also lead to dry and itchy eyes, so it’s advisable to have some eye drops lying around before indulging. Most users also report getting cottonmouth, but this can be solved by increasing your water intake.

Growing Ghost Bubba

Ghost Bubba is pretty easy to grow. Most growers prefer buying clippings from healthy plants and cultivating genetically identical clones. You can also purchase feminized seeds from a trusted supplier.

The strain can grow both indoors and outdoors and is resistant to mildew and most common diseases. The plants typically flower in just eight to nine weeks and yield about 350-425 grams.

For optimum harvests, you’ll need to provide the plants with a minimum of six hours of sunlight every day. And the optimum temperature and humidity range from 59-71°F and 50 percent, respectively.

How to Use Ghost Bubba for the Best High

We all love getting high. But the euphoric effects can quickly turn into a not-so-pleasing experience when it gets out of hand. And when you’re dealing with a strain as potent as Ghost Bubba, the latter cannot be truer.

For starters, you need to mind your dosage. If you’ve never used the Ghost Bubba before, it’s best to start small, then work your way up as you gauge the effects. You also need to make sure you are in a comfortable space with people you feel safe with. Nothing sucks as much as getting anxiety or paranoia when you’re surrounded by strangers. So, if you don’t have people you can chill out with while you ride your high, it’s best to just sit home and relax when enjoying a cool movie.

Other than that, using Ghost Bubba is just like using any other strain. You just need to do whatever works for you. 

The Bottom Line

As a highly potent indica hybrid, Ghost Bubba is certainly worth giving a shot. Its high THC content also makes it an excellent recreational and medical choice. And since its effects are largely physical, it serves as a perfect evening strain due to its calming body high

That said, if you are a beginner or have a low THC tolerance, it is advisable that you start small, then work your way up to avoid any adverse effects.
