On any given day, there are many tasks to be done. Sometimes you really need an herb to help accomplishing the daily dues more efficiently, alternatively there are times when you need something to help you forget the duties that need doing. Your local CBD shop probably has so many choices that it’s hard to know which product will be best for you. Voila, along comes Bubble Bomb to give you it’s beguiling boon.
The bud at hand this week is (obviously) Bubble Bomb, grown by Doc Croc. This particular strain was purchased from the Ballard area Stash (a rustic pot shop close to some of my favorite breweries, and restaurants). They have a second location in Lake City, which we have yet to visit.
Doc Croc consists of a couple Australian cobbers who know their shit. When it comes to growing, the Olympia-based producer only uses water – no dirt required. This makes for a fantastically potent and scrumptious product, offering bright flavors and giddy highs. True that Washington has a bounty of prolific soil (we boast many harvests of varying types), but there’s something to be said for completely hydro grown nugs.
As the Doctor (Tennent specifically) said, “Water is patient. Water just waits. Wears down the cliff tops, the mountains. The whole of the world. Water always wins.” When it comes to dirt vs. water, I don’t have enough quantitative information to decide which always wins – but it’s certain that the differing grow styles produce unique results.
Considering water as a powerful element, it’s almost like harnessing something wild to produce a superior product. Let’s take a look at das specifics of said product:
THC A: 20.4%
Strain: Bubble Bomb
Species: Hybrid (50% Indica / 50% Sativa)
Smell: Lemon + Grape + Lavender + Skunk
Taste: Lavender + Freshness + Earthiness
Launch Point: Within two minutes, you will be high.
High: Relaxed + Social + Getting Tasks Done + Forgetting About Tasks
Cracking open a bag of Doc Croc has proved a festive experience, yielding multicolor inhabitants of proper proportion. In the 1 gram package of Bubble Bomb I received, there was just one big nug; it was quite fluffy, and displayed a keen palette of similar (but different) color. Talking about keef crystals too, this herb is covered with a layer of love (as you can see).
Smell is exquisite – sporting a menagerie of fruit, floral, and funky tones. Truly a bud that must be smelled to understand, but centrally boasting fragrance of lavender and grape.
The taste is surprisingly earthy for a strain that wasn’t grown in the earth. There is also a hint of lavender carrying over from the perfume-like aroma. The flavor seemed to be more intense when hitting from a vaporizer, as it often seems (I imagine it’s because smoke overwhelms the palate).
This, my reader, is a versatile strain. As I touched on in the opening paragraph, Bubble Bomb is there for when responsibility calls – whether that means meeting the challenge, or escaping into a cavalcade of pleasant headiness, away from this mortal world.
I can’t quite recall what I did specially while smoking Bubble Bomb, but I do remember having fun. There was grilling, hard cider, good people, and gold weather. “Days off should be spent among such things”, I remember thinking. Time can be controlled with a good strain, and this particular bud helped me absorb that sun bleached afternoon if only for a moment.
