Bubble Gum

Bubble Gum is a steady 50/50 hybrid. This strain traveled the globe very quickly. It was originally cultivated in Indiana, then it moved to New England and eventually made its way to Holland. Bubble Gum’s exact genetics are unknown, but some would argue that it’s parents are Bubba Kush and Ghost OG.

Bubble Gum is popular because it provides a strong euphoric high that makes people happy and couch-locks them too. Many fans agree that this strain helps consumers be creative. “It numbs the body but not the mind. I felt focused, alert and creative… I did feel tingly like my muscles were being gently massaged.” Said Bubble Gum enthusiast, jester.jackson.

Bubble Gum is an award-winning strain. In 1992, a breeding company called, TH Seeds, entered their version of the oh so delicious Bubble Gum and won. They did so well that they kept re-entering their strain and won four more High Times Cannabis Cups. Bubble Gum also won two awards in the Cannabis Cup of 94’, 2nd place in 95’ and 99’.

Bubble Popping Buds

This fruity hybrid is an easy to grow strain. It is easy to manage and new growers will have a nice introduction to cultivation with this strain. It doesn’t grow too big or too small making rotation a simpler process for growers. But it does tend to stretch a bit toward the end.

Bubble Gum can be grown indoors or outdoors. But it prefers temperatures between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It does require a little protection from weather to prevent mold build up in the buds. Otherwise, treat it as you would any other.

Use phosphorus to create nice beautiful buds and give this strain enough time to flush the nutrients. This will help achieve Bubble Gum’s iconic flavor.

Bad Gum

Every strain of cannabis has it ups and downs. And the Bubble Gum strain is not an exception. The good news is that its negatives are not as potent as other strains.

Dry mouth is a normal side-effect of this strain. But, like with many strains that cause dry-mouth it is easy to deal with by having a refreshing beverage nearby. Other not so common complaints are dry eyes, dizziness, anxiety and paranoia.

I know what you’re thinking, you’re probably wondering how a strain that combats anxiety also increases it? The answer is simple, its all about potency. This phenotype is strong, it does not provide a weak high. The more people smoke of a strong strain the more powerful its effects are.
