The Burkle medical marijuana strain is a cross of "Pre-98" Bubba and Grand Daddy Purple. Since the "Pre 98" in Bubba means that it is a Bubba cut before 1998, making it a pure Bubba cut. Although, the breeder of the original Bubba swears that it is no longer in circulation and in fact is Bubba Kush, not the Bubba or "Pre-98", which is a sales pitch. See the Bubba Kush page for more information. Burkle has a unique licorice scent that is concentrated, and has a peppermint tone to it. Burkle keeps the patient mentally functional, and very mellowing, ending with a slight sleepiness.
