Everybody has a different idea of what constitutes a good cookie—is it necessary for them to be crunchy or dense and soft? Everybody loves sweet flavours, but when it comes to shape or flavor, cookies can be ridiculously varied, Even though they were made to please the eater's palate, they can be quite a peculiar type of cookie.

BEC (aka Bubba Erkle Cookies) is an indica-dominant hybrid that smells strongly of myrcene. Buds are light colored, and, covered by a heavy coat of trichomes, they appear almost fluffy. Among its parent strains are Purple Urkle and Bubba Kush. Both these strains are legendary on their own. BEC is one of the strains with a balanced ratio of THC and CBD, which accounts for 8.45 percent and 5.08 percent, respectively.

Key Takeaways

  • BEC is an indica-dominant hybrid strain with a balanced THC and CBD ratio of 8.45% and 5.08%, respectively.
  • It has a rich terpene profile featuring myrcene, caryophyllene, pinene, and limonene. This combination gives BEC its distinctive fruity, piney, and pungent flavors.
  • The strain is known for its smooth high that enhances happiness and lifts mood, making it ideal for a relaxed afternoon or evening.

BEC Terpenes

Thanks to its parents, BEC boasts a pretty impressive terpene profile. Chief among them, the strain has a high amount of myrcene, which gives BEC its fruity, spicy aromas and flavours, but Caryophyllene, pinene and limonene are all in there, too, taking it into fruity and piney territory with some pungency thrown in for good measure. My mouth waters when I smell it.

BEC Effects

Since it is an indica-dominant strain, BEC will make you feel a smooth high that brings you happiness and lifts your mood. For this reason, BEC is a great strain for a chill afternoon smoke when there’s not much going on and you don’t need to get anything done. Hanging out with friends, going for a walk, or just listening to some good music are activities that become much more interesting when you have smoked BEC.

In terms of terpenes, they all contribute their special properties to the mix. Myrcene has sedative effects and acts as a muscle relaxant. Limonene is great for managing anxiety and depression and it also works against acid reflux.

Caryophyllene is known to interact with the endocannabinoid system, potentiating the effects of other terpenes and regulating mood. Additionally, it has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.

Lastly, pinene is an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory terpene that also aids memory and counteracts the negative effects of THC, like anxiety. For this reason, BEC is a perfect strain for new smokers or consumers who have high sensitivity to THC.

BEC Genetics

BEC inherited the indica characteristics of its parents, Purple Urkle and Bubba Kush, along with both THC and CBD levels that make it a balanced strain for those who love a good high while feeling grounded.

Lineage

Purple Urkle is a balanced hybrid, with almost a 50/50 sativa-indica profile. It provides an euphoric buzz that contrasts with its relaxing and smooth effects. It has a strong presence of pinene, which gives it typical herbal and piney notes.

Because it has dominant indica properties, Purple Urkle is often used to treat anxiety and insomnia. As to Bubba Kush, its genetics go back to the Hindu Kush landrace strains, having a strong indica profile along with sweet and earthy flavors.

Bubba Kush is used at night because it gives you a sleepy feeling, relaxing your whole body. It’s THC level is 17%, giving consumers all they need for a good night's sleep while taking away stress and pain and replacing them with a happy mood.

Growth Information

The BEC strain is cultivated under precise conditions as growers capitalise on certain factors that promote healthy plant growth and an abundant yield. Here is an illustration detailing some important aspects of cannabis cultivation:

  • Climate Requirements: The BEC strain thrives in a controlled environment where temperature and humidity levels can be carefully monitored. It prefers a mild to warm climate with consistent temperatures between 70-80°F.

  • Soil and Nutrients: This strain thrives in a rich, well-draining soil. Though it can tolerate many fertilisers, it responds especially well to organic nutrients, especially during the flowering phase, to increase terpene profiles and bud density. Additionally, it can be fertilised very heavily without causing hermaphrodite issues.

  • Watering Schedule: Water every day for the first week. After that, water every other day. Let soil dry out just a bit between watering so that the plant doesn’t get root rot. BEC Strain: The BEC Strain is a bit drought tolerant. This makes it fairly forgiving to slight variances in watering.

  • Lighting: The BEC strain requires a lot of light to produce its highest yield. You might want to ensure HPS or LED lighting of high intensity for best results.

BEC Price

For a quality strain like BEC, its price adjusts accordingly to the benefits and overall effects. You can buy Bubba Erkle Cookies for $5.00 per gram from Redecan Pharma. here, but prices may vary according to the retailer you are buying from.

Always make sure to check your products for third-party lab tests. Finding a good indica strain is hard when you don’t know where to buy quality cannabis.

If you like the effects BEC can provide, check out Botany Farms’ Special Sauce. This indica strain has a sweet and earthy aroma that blends perfectly with its berry flavor. Our consumers love it for a nighttime smoke, just to melt stress away and make anxiety disappear for a short period of time before going to bed.

With 18.8% CBD content, BEC offers many benefits for your body without giving you a high.

My Personal Recommendation for BEC Strain 

I have been growing this BEC strain for a few harvests now and always recommend it to both beginners and experienced gardeners, especially if you need some reliability. Great for both indoor and outdoor grows.

The flavour of the BEC strain is earthy and piney with a hint of sweetness – ideal for connoisseurs of more nuanced aromas and tastes – and the high offers the perfect combination of stress relief and tranquility without inducing heavy body sedation.

This is definitely a weed you want to have in your rotation at the end of a long day. BEC is a very generous strain when it comes to yield with dense, sticky buds that are potent and beautiful. She’s easy to manage and can be grown everywhere, in any growing style.

In summary, BEC is a delight to grow and rewarding in smoking / vaping but has a relatively low commercial value. This is a real gem of a strain, one of those good-result stalwarts that should be at the top of your list to try.
