Bubble Gum is an indica heavy strain whose precise lineage and genetic makeup remains shrouded in mystery. The story begins in Indiana where the plant’s original cultivators distributed three saplings across 3 different seed banks in the Netherlands for cultivation. From there each of the three breeders grew a different Bubble gum phenotype. Some phenotypes became indica rich whereas some had a strong sativa concentration. Bubble gum that we know and love today is a cloned strain produced by inbreeding several generations of the ancestral plant.
Bubble Gum has a distinctive sweet bubble gum flavor with earthy and peppery undertones. Indica roots of the strain impart couch lock syndrome and induces laziness while sativa is responsible for its mood-lifting properties and potent euphoric highs. It usually has above average THC content ranging from 15 to 20 percent.
Bubble Gum can be grown in indoor and outdoor gardens as regular as well as feminized versions of seeds are widely available online. Bubble gum seeds grow into robust plants that have uniformly strong, well built and thick stems. Proper trimming and clipping is required as Bubble gum has low lateral branching and prefers growing vertically. Flowering is completed in about 50 to 60 days.
