Honey Boo Boo Strain. Sassy, uplifting and full of flavor. And I’m not just talking about the young star of ‘Toddlers and Tiara’s and protagonist of reality TV show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.’ The Indica dominant strain Honey Boo Boo is, in fact, a limited edition cross between Bubba Kush and Captain Krypt OG. Recommended for indoor cultivation, this strain can be enjoyed by all types of users and provides an energetic high, despite being predominantly an Indica (80/20).
This strain will take between 8-9 weeks to produce beautiful dense buds. You’ll know when the buds are ready, however, as they will turn a subtle shade of purple. As Honey Boo Boo does best indoors, almost anyone with suitable room and growing space can cultivate this hybrid. It is worth mentioning that this is a limited edition hybrid, and if you are planning to grow this you will need to act quickly.
With a sweet citrus flavor, Honey Boo Boo can make you want to take hit after hit and is mild enough to allow you to do so without becoming couch-locked. This strain has small, popcorn-like nugs that you can enjoy while watching the original Honey Boo Boo, and which produce a sweet, honey-like smell with an earthy lemon undertone. This is as far as the similarities go between the child star and this hybrid, however, with this strain having characteristic dark amber hairs and trichomes that cover the nugs.
One study by Analytical 360 found the THC content in one strain of Honey Boo Boo to come in at 15.22 %. However, it must be noted that under the right conditions, this can reach up to 18%. The test also found the strain to contain 0.11% CBD with a surprisingly high terpene content of 1.676% (0.604% Limonene and 0.304 % Caryophyllene coming through in the taste and aroma).
Some users find this strain to be rather average, regarding the head high produced and the mid-range THC levels. However, what distinguishes Honey Boo Boo from other mid-range strains, is its ability to build slowly to an energetic high that lasts a long time. This gradual building and uplifting effect makes it suitable for people who want to enjoy a long session or remain fully functional during the day. Perfect for the adventurous sort who wants to combine functionality with a euphoric high.
The analgesic properties of this strain, along with the anti-inflammatory effects, makes this a popular choice for individuals who require a mild, yet effective alternative medication. As with many Indicas, the body buzz experienced can help to alleviate moderate aches and pains, while still being mild enough to provide you with full functionality.
Although the THC level of Honey Boo Boo is middling, you might experience a body buzz that sets in somewhat unexpectedly and can last for quite some time. It has also been reported that this strain may cause arousal, which could suggest it contains aphrodisiac properties.
