Katsu Bubba Kush

from Freedom 49 Farms

Katsu Bubba Kush is a must try for this fall!

Although this delicious Katsu is not a yummy fried chicken dish enjoyed by the likes of Beast Mode Marshawn Lynch, it will get you baked like a beast and ready for another fall transition.

When back to school and football ads start competing for airtime on TV, we know it’s time to get baked because the quick descent into winter is coming. Soon it will be pumpkin spice this and turkey day that, just in time to cue the Christmas music! Our humble suggestion: Save yourself from this madness the old-fashioned way, getting totally stoned and slowing time down all on your own. There are still plenty of adventures to be had, and this unique sativa phenotype from the famed Bubba Kush line has a lot to offer for this changing time of year.

First impressions being everything when it comes to weed, this Katsu Bubba Kush has absolutely gorgeous bag appeal – featuring dark purple buds that are perfectly coated in a thick layer of trichomes. The structure is solid with a gentle squish and light stickiness when breaking open a nugget to smoke, coating fingers and rolling surfaces with a flurry of kief-y goodness. As the buds are broken open a warming, sweet-earthy-pine flavor wafts up with a hint of sour gas that ensures a fuelly, heavy toke is soon to be enjoyed.

Burning a bowl delivers a clean, robust hit with rich earthy notes and a hint of berries and pine-fuel that linger on the palate. Effects start quickly in the mind, providing a floaty clarity the puts the head in a bubble – floating above a pain-free and heavily sedated body. This buzz is perfect for a fall afternoon, reading or playing video games, with neurons still firing in the brain as a thick case of couchlock settles in.

With beautiful looks, a complex flavor profile, and euphoric, stoney effects, this Katsu Bubba Kush grown by Freedom 49 Farms is a must-try for this fall. If you’re looking for a T&T style pairing, try finding a fruity and dark red wine to complement with, or a bright and hoppy beer to wash down tokes. Just skip the extra Katsu sauce!
