Overall: While I have never heard of a “Purple” variety of Bubba Kush, the grower is fairly reputable, has done his own hybrids in the past, and assured me he blended in “something purple” to justify the name. Definitely tastes different than the regular Bubba Kush I’ve smoked. The 2 stage buzz was also enjoyable, as I got lulled into thinking the head buzz was all I was going to get, until the body stone crept in about 15-20 minutes later. Smoking a bit more, and the body high turned into a deep couch-lock.
