The balanced nature of Bubble Gum results in a well balanced high, consisting of a cerebral sensation that is augmented by a relaxing and gentle body stone. The indica elements of this smoke induce a slight couch lock and are very calming, often ramping up appetite and bringing on the munchies. This strain will also help with sleep when used at the right time. The sativa aspects of the high derived from Bubble Gum invoke a head high that is uplifting, thought provoking and quite meditative.
Bubble Gum presents a complex taste as the smoke from a joint or bong rolls over the tongue. This sensation is defined by tones of bubblegum, fruit, spice, bitterness and earthiness. The smell released when burning Bubble Gum flowers is also multilayered, featuring scents of spearmint, basil, thyme, grapefruit, strawberry, nectar and flowers. This combination of scent and taste make Bubble Gum a great pick for the cannabis connoisseur, those who appreciate every aspect of a strain when getting high.
The flowering period of this strain is between 8 to 9 weeks and if growing outdoors, harvest time will usually occur during October. The flowers produced by Bubblegum contain a reasonably high THC.
