Sure. What do you want to know, my impression of effects or its physical characteristics?
Color me impressed. It’s funny, I was skeptical of the name, but I loaded some in my Vapcap and the first hit tasted like strawberry nirvana. Then I coughed unexpectedly on the next hit when I got visible vapor. AS ADVERTISED! It’s kind of a creeper but it has stronger cerebral effects than the other sativa I have, Orangeade. The best tasting strains I’ve ever tried were White Dream, Romulan Grapefruit, and Nightmare Cookies. I might just put this up there with those. Smells amaze-balls. Its the kind of bud you want to keep but not consume just so you can smell it. The only issue is the flavor drops off fast but then again, it was only 0.035 that I loaded. When I load my Alfa with 0.2 of this and put it on low I expect my head to explode into strawberries.
Both, if it's possible. 12 weeks is a very long time, so I hope it has to be remarkable.
It'll be an outdoor jungle
I find the biggest attribute of the Platinum Bubba Kush (PBK) strain to be its high avg THC content; high THC drives much of the effects and experience with PBK. Some people will love this and others less so.
The high THC concentration in PBK brings some notably cerebrally stimulating effects when vaping, especially at lower temps. This can spillover into some physical stimulation initially too. I've seen PBK described as a head melting high and I can see why. Higher doses may bring me strong narcotic effects as well (that zone of a combination of both stimulatory effects as well as significant relaxation/sedation effects). I concur that PBK usually has appetite stimulation as well.
The sedative/relaxation indica effects follow with time (and higher temps) and in my experience are in line with the estimate 80% indica content of PBK. While I don't find PBK as strong an indica as Afghan Kush for example, PBK has significantly more THC effects. I can definitely notice the partial citrus terpene profile of PBK in vaping, and some spiciness. Afghan Kush, otoh, just has spicy notes (plus < THC and much much less cerebral stimulation). PBK reminds me of God Bud in experience... both are high THC content and leaning significantly to indica, but PBK has even more indica content (with the eventual commensurate sedative/relaxation effects).
My PBK batch looks pretty typical for high indica content cannabis strains; it has dense compact nugs and not a lot of sugar leaf, lots of orange-brown pistils too. Although my batch had no purple tones in it. It looks like many pictures for the strain that show those characteristics. Even small nugs are potent nugs.
Among the indica strains I've tried, I look to PBK when I want both a high THC experience and a strong indica experience.
Here's some other info on PBK
Hope that helps. Good luck with your decision.
@CANtalk thank you so much
i had some material a few weeks ago, it smelled and tasted like pure frankincense when vaping...it made me highly nervous and really restless, it was like pure energy going through my body. there was no real high, just energy. i found it to be a bit stressing experience.
i don´t know what it exactly was but it made me weary of pure sativas, it was basically the opposite of what i wanted.
@WakeVape&Bake, if you're vaping this strain in the flower form, consider raising your vape temp a bit higher. I have found that by vaping somewhere between 390F and 410F the taste gets toasty quicker but the effects are altered to be a bit more sedating than racy. A way to tone down a bright sativa.
Some of the effects could have been from terpenes. Sometimes after the "perfumy" smell fades the soaring effects calm down. IDK if thats the case here, just speculating.
I have found it in buds taken just a bit early and they can be like that for a few weeks then back to normal as the terpenes change. Taking top buds early is also a way growers can get high cannabinoid scores in testing labs. Still best though is a normal timed harvest imho.
At times if you stick with that energetic buzz, it gets more manageable. Second time not as bad, 3rd easier and so on. I actually like to ride that wave of energy, but then i'm a jaded old fart. Its like driving a race car, a car that's you, keep your seat belt on, lol.
sorry for the late reply, i´ve overlooked the answers.
thanks for the tips/insights, next time i will try a different temperature! as i get "older" (38 in a few weeks) i experience the "coming up" from cannabis to be more difficult to handle than say, in my early 20s.
sometimes i need a higher dose to really make sure the effects are fully there, some smaller doses of Sativa makes me more alerted than when i am vaping a bit more..the onset is the problem i think.maybe i should mix with CBD flower. or, as you said just "go with the flow"
Low temp vaping strong quality sativas are my bag . They can be a strong, potent, cerebral and physical experience... and the effects can be variable. I've noticed differences in effects from strain to strain... and there can be some batch to batch quality differences too.
I hope your experiences stay good .
I'm enjoying some more strong sativas .
Here's a new picture of the recent batch of Ghost Train Haze. I'm happy. It's pretty frosty.
Here's a good full size picture in this link. Click on the picture to zoom in, https://i.redd.it/56p8uyzu62d41.jpg.
Have a great weekend.
Good sativa cannbis times here tonight. I highly recommend Golden Goat in the sativa leaning category, quality batches are top notch potent . I've also had some small bowls of other strains and decided to buy some more fresh good looking strong sativa cannabis .
Good times... I want some more fresh quality strong sativa flower and I'm I'm a big strong sativa fan . So it was Red Congolese that tempted me . It's a new strain (for me)... and the batch looks good, check it out.
I'm looking forward to trying it and this batch looks good/hopeful . May we all get great cannabis . Wish me luck.
Have a great weekend.
You have awesome taste in strains, CANtalk! Can't wait to get back to growing so I can have my beloved narrow leafs again.
Ready to load up some big fat White Widow spears this morning!
Thx @proceeds_the_weedian ! It seems we're kindred spirits on cannabis . I've been sativa strain hunting a lot... and my experience has been guiding my choices. NA/SA equitorial sativas (and with that breeding) are my current best-in-class. And I'm looking forward to trying another one with this Red Congolese. There are so many sativas and so little time...
Last night I was when I posted (I could have done better lol, sorry). So that I impulse ordered that new-to-me batch and strain of Red Congolese . No regrets at all today, cannabis access has exploded in Canada and it was an inexpensive purchase. I hope I get a good batch and see what this Red Congolese is all about . I had great success with this producer before and another strong sativa (my Viper posts earlier and here http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/sativa-lovers.24064/page-7#post-1422964).
I've never grown (lazy) but it would be awesome and major props on doing that . Do it again .
Thx for the reply. It was a trip to go through my last few pages of posts here. I like the pics and quality .
Enjoy sativas and have a great weekend.
I'm a sativa lover and very curious about Red Congolese. ... any similarities with Durban Poison which is probably #1 on my flower bucket list. Wonder if it has high THCV levels like Durban/ landrace African???
And Haze, never met a Haze I didn't like.
It is great that you have access to all these super star strains.
Yeah,man just had to shout you out for the pics. A sativa nerd recognizes another Not that there aren't other nice ones here, yours just stand out to me. Good job
Hell yeah on the equatorials!! My third and fourth grows were actually Thai(or some other kind of bricked sativa with red string thrown in) bagseed! That one was a trip, having only grown dutch stuff up until then,I had no idea what I was getting into. Only strain I've ever had to pot up well into flower, because they were still putting on size after 8 weeks of flower! Had to tie and bend every day to keep them for eating my light. Took'em down at 20 weeks, could easily have gone longer! Amazing, stimulating stuff. Those grows got me hooked on growing strains based on equatorials, but better suited for indoor: DJ Short's Flo, Trainwreck crosses, Chimera's Highland Mex x BB, Hazes etc. Through forum-friends I was lucky enough to get some unworked Mexican strains that I still haven't popped, but their time is coming! The really crazy thing is,I was only smoking at the time! Can't wait to vape some of the stuff I have in the archive
Africans were totally on my radar, but I haven't gotten to grow any....YET! Is that Congolese the old cut that has been in the Canadian scene for like 20-30 years? It's amazing to see something like that compete with modern stuff and survive for that long through all the fads. I get how you don't feel compelled to grow with the amazing array of buds to be bought, but you should seriously consider it I had to smuggle seeds into an illegal country, you can get seeds and clones legally!! A worked landrace (or 10 week + narrow leaf), grown in organic soil with a long cure is the kind of weed money can't buy!
Anyway, enough rambling from me. Keep the lovely buds coming, so I can continue to live vicariously through them
Here to say, I love reading what you all share. Learning how sativas incorporate into my regiment on a regular basis. I find in the mornings that they are "milder" first thing than indicas. Less likely to trigger any kind of anxiety response, interestingly.
Here's the Grapefruit Durban I've got now. Fantastic, cerebral, very grapefruit. Smell can linger if I vape a couple bowls.
I like it because it doesn't seem to cause the racing thoughts I've learned to associate with pure Sativas.
TGIF. I wanted to first share a picture of the new Red Congolese here. Vaping it now.

Looks good to me. What's everyone's thoughts?
Sorry about mangling my last post a bit, I meant to say my best-in-class experiences are from NA/SA tropical and whole world equatorial sativas. Thus, the next sentence makes more sense.
@MinnBobber, here's that pic and cheers. I don't know how similar it is to Durban Poison but in my limited batch use the experience is similar. I really enjoy hazes too... and I've barely scratched the surface there. So many excellent cannabis strains to try...
That's a great list @proceeds_the_weedian. I envy that MX stuff to try. MX stuff has been primo... and I visit there sampling locally . I don't know how old RC is... Maybe someone here can fill us in. I did see it placed in the Cannabis Cup in 2013. I'm not in a position to grow at this time but I envy all growers and appreciate all those who share their growing experiences. I have to live vicariously there. Thx for the feedback and hope all is well during these crazy times.
Sweet @Bortz .
Have a great Friday everyone.
This Sour Tangie batch has been in high rotation for a number of months now. It's been great and I highly recommend the strain . I'd love to get my hands on some Tangie or other strong sativa Tangie crosses...
