Death Bubba cannabis strain hails from B.C. Canada, that much is certain. Less certain are the exact origins of this strain. It is said to be a cross of Death Star and Bubba Kush.
Death Star is a cross of Sensi Star and Sour Diesel but the full genetics of Sensi Star have not been revealed. It is believed to be mostly Afghani but there is some Sativa in her genetics too. She is a multiple Cannabis Cup winner.
According to Leafly: “Death Bubba, bred by Matteo Suleyman of Vancouver BC’s Sea to Sky, is a beautiful, purple-hued strain with trichromes and terpenes abound. Created by crossing Death Star and Bubba Kush.” https://www.leafly.com/indica/death-bubba
I do not believe the information to be accurate though. So I would have to say the real Death Bubba’s genetics are unknown and remain a mystery. It is not at all uncommon for a dispensary to claim they have something or rename something if it is popular.
Truth be told Grand Master Level named this strain and was growing it for years before a certain Vancouver dispensary either created or renamed a variety and called it Death Bubba after he refused to sell any to them or provide them with any cuts. So the Leafly plant is a fake and not the real Death Bubba.
My plant did not come directly from GML but it is definitely the real Death Bubba cut without doubt. Death Bubba is a clone only strain and there are no authentic seeds available at this time.
I ran across an old grow on YouTube where a guy was growing a dead ringer for it. He called it Platinum Bubba Kush and it was a cross of Platinum OG and Bubba Kush. Cant say that is what it is but the plant definitely grows more like a shorter OG rather than a Bubba Kush.
Both Platinum OG and Bubba Kush are popular on the west coast so it is possible someone made this cross.
Regardless, stories about its potency and quality abound and I wanted to try growing it for myself.

Here is a short video of it being grown that I found on Instagram

So here is my cut:
I will begin vegging it out, get a few cuts from it and will be starting my grow journal soon. Here is a quick video

Death Bubba is a cross of Death Star and Bubba Kush from B.C. Canada. Have seen it grown and heard about the quality of the smoke and wanted to give it a try. • @grandmasterlevel @horticulturelightinggroup @newmilleniumnutrients @fishlips_gardens • http://420dotcom.com/death-bubba-cannabis-strain.html • #420grower #420growers #420instagram #420everyday #420nation #mmjlife #weedlove #weedlover #weedofinstagram #mmjgrower #mmjlife #budporn #howtogrowweed #growingweed #420dotcom #closetgrow #howtogrowweedindoors #growyourownmedicine #cobled #growyourownmeds #playingwithfire #greengenesgarden #closetgrower #closetgrown #newmilleniumnutrients #quantumboards #hlg
Death Bubba In Veg
This strain shows strong basal dominance much like her ancestor Bubba Kush. Most plants I have grown show apical dominance. They grow much like a Christmas tree whereas the Death Bubba wants to grow like a bush.
She made a lot of small leaves and shoots low down on the plant. It was keeping top growth from happening. Short bushy plants are not well suited for my training and growing system.
In a mixed grow they would quickly get shaded. Even if they were not the lights would be up higher and there would be limited light available for growth of lower branches.
I decided to try removing most of the lower growth to see if I could get a taller more upright plant.

Late Veg And Another Defoliation
I saw a positive response from removing lowers. Leaves were larger now and although the main branches were upright enough there still was a lot of lower growth that would be poorly lit and not grow well. So I decided to trim her again.
She will be flowered in 2 weeks. I just cant hold her any longer. She shares her grow space with Tropicanna Cookies which is a very tall plant. It is 24 inches tall and ready to flower while the Death Bubba is only about 16 inches tall.
FLOWERING DAY 1
I decided it was now or never and put the whole closet into flower. Although the Death Bubba is smaller than I would like I still think she will do well.
There are 4 Tropicanna in the closet along with a GG4 and an Animal Cookies. Animal cookies is supposed to be a tall plant and the Tropicanna gets tall and I felt waiting any longer would result in an out of control grow considering the number of plants in the closet.
