About Bob Barker
Bob Barker is a tough to find strain with indica leanings. This bud, named after the former host of The Price Is Right, is said to be a cross between SFV OG Kush and hybrid staple Bubba Kush. A middle-of-the-road smoke, it offers consumers a physically stimulating high, accented by a pleasantly woody aroma. The strain’s THC content has been measured at between 14% and 22%.
Bob Barker is marked by small to medium-sized flowers that cling together in clustered, popcorn-like formations. These pebbly buds stay true to their indica roots with a dense and tightly-packed internal structure. The coiled and spiraling leaves are a pale shade of green and are twisted through with orange and brown trichomes. Finally, cloudy white trichomes dot the surfaces of these flowers, making them very sticky to the touch.
An initial whiff of Bob Barker’s flowers reveals the initial pungent scent of skunk. Hanging out underneath are some woodsy notes of pine and earth. Meanwhile, grinding up the strain’s thick buds release some medicinal hints of sage and mint that may be familiar to fans of Haze. When burnt, Bob Barker tends to give off a thick and acrid smoke that may cause some coughing or watery eyes. On the exhale, this bud can carry a hashy, somewhat sour aroma.
Like many other predominantly indica strains Bob Barker may take some time before striking users with its mellow effects. When it does hit after 10 minutes or so, it’ll exert some increased blood pressure to the face, resulting in fringe effects like a throbbing around the temples or an increase in salivation. Once these odd sensations abate, though, smokers may detect some elevation of their thinking patterns, characterized by a more deliberate, analytical mindset and a kind of fast-paced free association between thoughts. Those looking to be productive can apply this mental engagement to complicated tasks, whether they’re work-related or more personal. The head high can also open up some creative avenues, facilitating open-ended ventures like brainstorming or art projects. Typically, though, Bob Barker’s mental effects are as intense or cerebral as some more pronounced sativa strains. Within relatively little time, this bud’s body high begins to take over, putting a gradual feeling of heaviness in the user’s core and limbs. Those who may have been active or standing earlier may be overcome by the desire to take a load off in the closest comfortable surroundings. Bob Barker’s relaxation can undo any tightly-tied knots of muscular tension and ease its consumers into a blissed-out state. While the strain’s sense of mental engagement is still present, the newly lazy vibes tend to sap its sense of motivation. In these later phases, Bob Barker is a good way to catch up on some binge-watching or to enjoy some hang time with friends. Its combination of mental and physical stimulation a potent aphrodisiac under the right circumstances. Because of its decrease from energy into mellow sedation, Bob Barker is recommended for enjoyment between afternoon and evening.
Bob Barker can also have several uses for medical cannabis patients. It can facilitate concentration on single tasks for those with attention deficit disorders, while its mood-boosting properties may temporarily relieve the symptoms of stress and depression. Physically speaking, Bob Barker can dull aches and pains, whether they’re chronic as due to conditions like lupus or arthritis or temporary as due to injury. Anti-inflammatory properties can lessen everyday irritations like cramps and headaches.
Unfortunately for home growers seeds of Bob Barker are not available for sale online. Instead, gardeners should seek out a trusted source from which to obtain clippings that can be grown as “clones.” Bob Barker can be grown indoors or out, although success outdoors calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. As with many other predominantly indica strains, plants tend to grow short and bushy. Bob Barker flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors.
Bob Barker offers a nice, even-handed high that will elevate you without knocking you out. It’s an appealing option for indica and sativa lovers alike.
