Origins and Backstory: Big Bubba Diesel is a cross of the pre98 Bubba Kush and Sour Diesel. I'm unaware of which Sour Diesel clone this is or where it came from. This plant is grown in medical warehouses in Colorado due to its extreme potency, high bag appeal, and nose.
Appearance: The flowers from this plant are very aesthetically-pleasing. Greens, purples, blacks, and reds can be seen. The flowers are incredibly-dense, but they still have a pine-cone structure to them. They are like elongated or oblong golf balls, like stretching out Bubba Kush flowers without losing density. The leaves can reach dark hues of purple and black, but the flowers almost always remain a dark green. The flowers are also highly resinous. It's obvious this one was bred for the indoors.
Aroma: Very metallic and chem-like, Big Bubba Diesel is a darker, more rank version of its Sour Diesel father. It smells like classic dark cave and chemdog, but the fuel tones are a bit sweeter and more fruity. Strong notes of copper, tin, and iron are present, as are hints of perfectly-ripe papaya and mango. There are mustier, old style hashish aromas present as well, obviously coming by way of the Bubba Kush side of the lineage. Sweet, metallic, chem-like, and mild notes of diesel fuel.
Flavor: The flavor of Big Bubba Diesel is appropriate for its namesake--it is big and bold, immediately reminiscent of Diesel and middle-eastern Kush. There are sour, metallic, coppery flavors up front that completely coat the palate like any good Diesel plant. Big Bubba Diesel is less fuely than diesel but has a pleasantly potent sour flavor. Also very noticeable are coffee and subtle notes of spicy, marshmallow "Kush" flavors. It makes me think more of Pure Kush than Bubba, and is really an incredible spin on both the Kush and diesel genetic lines of cannabis.
Effects: Very indica-oriented, BBD is potent, sleepy, hungry, and happy. It is long-lasting and very powerful herb. I was told it has significant CBD content. While that has never been verified, I could believe it. This is very deep-cutting and medicinal flower. She will put you to sleep at the end of the night, and can cut through the stone of nearly any other plant. If you smoke her earlier in the day, prepare to be productive in nothing but feeding yourself. This strain inspires munchies of the greatest order. However, it can be incredibly lethargic and eye-reddening, making mobility a challenge. This is definitely a headier version of Bubba Kush, and seems to be more potent. This will hit hard on all fronts--your mind will be stunned, curious, scared, relaxed, and pleased--the body will be deeply relaxed and aches just melt away. This is powerful, medicinal canna-magic that has tremendous medical value as well as recreational value on the nights in. This plant will hit just as hard as any OG or Chemdog variety.
Overall Experience: A favorite nightcap of mine, Big Bubba Diesel is pretty much sure to put you to sleep. It is so warm and relaxing, and seems to accentuate the luxuries of having blankets and pillows. In bed with closed eyes, I feel as if floating on clouds and cuddling with puppies. This flower is very narcotic in its effect, and is not meant for day use. The aroma and structure make for amazing bag appeal, and the flavor is sure to be enjoyed. Unfortunately, the only real use I can find for this herb is right before bed. It might be OK for an evening movie, but I would probably still fall asleep.
