Aloha was the very first dispensary I visited after getting my recommendation. I am, however, an FTP gift slut, so despite loading me with freebies and kindness, I hadn’t made it back around for a second visit. When I first stopped by last month, I signed up for their text notification list. Every Friday I receive a message outlining the weekend specials. Like clockwork at 10:30 I check my phone to see if I’ll be taking a trip to Santa Ana. This week the offering was Bubbleberry for $45/ eighth.
I grabbed an eighth of Bubbleberry last visit to Aloha, and it stood out among the other strains in my white bag. After getting my text, I quickly decided to get going to avoid traffic on I5. Unsurprisingly, Aloha was not busy at 11am on a Friday, and I had some time to chat with the budistas and sniff some jars. Eventually I settled on a split eighth (4 gram 1/8s at Aloha) of Bubbleberry and Pumpkin Pie OG. Because I split the eighth I lost the $5 off but was not upset because both strains looked good under the lights and I wanted to try the Pumpkin Pie.
Bubbleberry is a Sativa dominant hybrid of Bubblegum and Blueberry and brings flavors and traits from both parents. At about 80% Sativa, the high is talkative and cheerful, and at times even intuitive and thoughful. This strain is good for personality enhancement and social anxiety. A close friend of mine often brags about how he got his job after showing up for the interview stoned on Bubbleberry. The flavor is rich and fruity and representative of both the Blueberry and Bubblegum. The taste stays noticable right up until your bowl is cashed and never comes across as burnt or woody. I’ve also used this strain in a vaporizer, and the flavor is just as powerful and, dammit, tasty. Of the flavored hybrids I’ve tried, Bubbleberry remains my favorite. I don’t seem to be alone in this opinion. I have heard Bubbleberry recommended and praised by a number of budistas, customers, and friends and have even passed this recommendation on to others. Do not expect pain relief with this mostly Sativa hybrid. My arthritis was persistently achy. One final bit of warning: Bubbleberry has an incredibly potent smell. There is no way to be covert when using this medication. Bong, blunt, joint, bowl, or vaporizer-Bubbleberry is impossible to hide. Although rich and enjoyable, remember that not everyone shares your love of fine marijuana smells.
