Bubba Island Kush is a new Kush strain that has its origins in the USA. It was created by crossing a Grandaddy Purple x OG Kush hybrid with a pre-1998 Buba Kush reverted male plant. This is a potent indica-dominant strain with great resin production that can grow up to 1.5 metres indoors in perfect conditions.
Bubba Island Kush has got that special hash plant look with leaves that turn dark blue in the latter stages of the flowering period. Average heights for this plant indoors are around a metre although it's possible to grow larger plants in the right conditions and with a little skill and experience. This is a strain that is grown for its sheer quality rather than for the quantity of its harvest. Average flowering times are a little over 7 weeks and its buds have a very high density. The amount of resin produced makes this the perfect strain from which to produce a variety of cannabis extracts such as hashish, butane hash oil, wax and shatter all of which emphasise the strain's unique terpene profile.
The flavour is typically earthy Kush underpinned by both sour and fruity tones. Dutch Passion tend not to release THC levels as this figure can vary so much depending on a wide range of factors including light intensity and individual grower skill but they do say that levels in excess of 20% are easily possible in the right hands and conditions. The effect is of a superbly relaxing indica-stone which provides maximum enjoyment. Premium indica buds in a fast flowering time.

About Dutch Passion
"You don't buy that many seeds a year, it's one area of your life where compromise isn't necessary so choose a seed bank with a long tradition and proven record" - Dutch Passion
In the 1970’s, Dutch Passion’s founder, Henk van Dalen, began collecting and breeding with cannabis seeds which he found in the early Dutch cannabis imports arriving from all over the world. He realised that it was possible to grow your own cannabis and often it was far superior to the often poor-quality, heavily seeded, imported product.
Some of his best varieties were selectively crossed and bred and he soom realised that many people would prefer to grow their own cannabis from seed rather than buy it on the streets.
In 1987, the Dutch Passion Seed Company was formally established. 10 years later, they became the first seed bank to learn how to make feminized seeds, something that many people at the time said was impossible with cannabis. Ever since then, Dutch Passion have been busy trying to create the best cannabis seeds and trying to keep up with customer interest in other varieties of seeds such as autoflowering and CBD-rich etc.
Dutch Passion grow from their own gene bank of original genetics collected decades ago, These days, many newer seed banks simply regurgitate existing varieties/genetics and put a new name on them. Dutch Passion are both proud and fortunate to have their own legendary varieties from the 1980’s and plenty of old original seeds to use for future projects.
Crowned Best Seed bank at Spannabis 2014, Dutch Passion are well known for their sophistication and quality. The Dutch Passion breeders concern themselves with creating and preserving quality, and their varieties have won many prizes in cannabis cup competitions.
