Bubba Strain Review (Top Leaf)

For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some  Bubba made by Top Leaf; this was my first experience with this company. What I like to call a “NO BS” type of strain it does what it has to do, looks the way it’s supposed to, and smells and tastes like some excellent, potent weed, and that’s all you want as a consumer, isn’t it?

Bubba is an  Indica-dominant hybrid cultivar that comes with some heavy cannabinoid content, anywhere between  20% and 27% THC; this specific batch came in at  26% THC  and an insignificant amount of CBD.

Below is an in-depth breakdown of all the other aspects of this bud; by the end of this Bubba strain review, you may need to go and get some!

  • Lineage: Death Star x Bubba Kush
  • Type: Indica-dominant
  • Potency: 20-27% THC
  • Terpene Profile: Caryophyllene, Myrcene, Humulene, and Limonene
  • Packaging Details: This was packaged on 01/15/2020 and tested/reviewed on 05/15/2020, exactly 121 days later.
  • Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $41.60 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ($11.89/gram)

Appearance: 3/5

Let me start with the packaging; I know, I know, I’m supposed to be reviewing strains here, but the packaging is part of the experience, and some stand out more than others! The dark container with the round top cover and gold writing makes it classy, but the cool part is its heaviness.

It’s the first product in SQDC with a glass container, and it just stands out as soon as you take a look at it compared to others. Now for the weed itself, what I meant when I called it a “NO BS” strain is that nothing jumps out at you that much, but everything is proper.

The colors on the buds are a mix of dark green and light green with touches of purple, a minimal amount of orange pistils, and a sheet of trichomes. It came in at 56% moisture content with four big nugs and a couple of little ones. I wasn’t a huge fan of the density as the buds felt a bit too airy for my liking; trimming could’ve been better.

Aroma: 3/5

The aroma is interesting; it’s heavy and familiar. Its skunky scents, accented with diesel and pine notes, are reminiscent of the Bubba Kush that friends used to grow. The heavily present caryophyllene makes the smell of this weed strong and spicy. If you’re a fan of that gassy, aggressive, non-fruity weed smell, this is for you.

Flavor: 3.5/5

I found that the aroma was a little more subtle than the flavors that land on your palate. I felt an aggressive diesel taste with pine, and wood notes on the inhale, with light earthy and skunky notes on the exhale and the aftertaste. Once again, it reminded me of some of the potent weed I used to smoke way before it was legal.

Effects: 3.5/5

I’m usually not the biggest fan of these super potent strains that are above 25% THC because a lot of times, it either glues me to the couch where I don’t feel like doing anything productive (which isn’t that bad, I guess) or gets my anxiety through the roof!

This wasn’t really the case with Bubba; although one half-gram joint got me high as a kite, it also felt uplifting and euphoric. Don’t get me wrong, this is some excellent “binge on a Netflix show and eat munchies” strain, but socializing works, too, even doing some work in my case!

Overall: 3.5/5

My first experience with a Top Leaf product was an enjoyable one, as you can probably tell by this Bubba Strain review. I would recommend this to both beginners and everyday smokers. However, this is some strong cannabis, so beginners beware. If you enjoy the strains on the stronger side, give Gelato Mintz strain a try next.

If you find this is too strong for you after smoking some, make sure you have some CBD flower nearby to counter the anxious feeling. This brought me back to the good old days; also, the vibe of the strain described by Top Leaf is very accurate “Step over to the Dark Side.”

If you’ve tried out some Bubba, let me know how you found it in the comments below!


  • Death Bubba (Qwest Cannabis): A cross between Bubba Kush and Death Star, similar to Bubba in lineage, providing a potent Indica-dominant experience with earthy and skunky flavors.
  • Violator Kush (Riff): This Indica-dominant strain delivers a strong body high and relaxation, with flavors of pine, spice, and skunk.
  • Rockstar (Grasslands): A strain known for its heavy sedative effects, Rockstar shares Bubba’s Indica dominance and offers a pungent, earthy aroma with notes of spice.

  1. I found it very dry, packaged late June
    Boungt end of Jan was bone dry.
    Looked nice, got me buzzed, but would not buy again. All this legal weed is way too dry.

  2. This strain got me so anxious and I threw up.. I’ve been smoking weed for almost 4 years and that has never happened to me.. However, once the anxiety stopped I slept pretty much through the night.. I don’t think I’ll be buying this strain again…

  3. Buyer beware. With Top Leaf I Was a faithful however the last 2 LA Kush Cake I purchased had two types of buds in it. About 10 g of nice solid resin filled buds the other 18g a fluffy interior buds that are not the same. I am on limited budget and will not take a chance with them again and advise others to do the same. Told me to take back to where purchased? They know you can’t. Not accountable at all.
