Bubblegum Strain

Bubblegum is a widely loved 80/20 Indica/Sativa hybrid. The strain was originally bred in Indiana with the intention of creating a balance between physical relaxation and cerebral stimulation.

The experiment was later taken to the New England area and then to breeders in Holland, who perfected the strain to refine its bubblegum flavor and the experience it provides.

In the 1990s, Bubblegum won the High Times Cannabis Cup because it tasted good and made people feel good. This strain was also recognized at the 2005 Spannabis Cannabis Champion’s Cup, where it took first place.


Because of its heavy indica content, bubblegum should generally be used at night or at a time when you have no need to be productive. Since it has a sedative nature, it may lower your energy levels or ability to focus on a task.

This classic hybrid strain is known for its sleepy and laid-back effects. Bubblegum is great for people who want to be more creative because it can make you think and act in creative ways. The high starts out as a wave of happiness and joy, with users entering a giggly, light headspace.

As the effects begin to level out, the user is led into a calmer, sleepier state of being. Because its THC content isn’t particularly high, Bubblegum Kush generates fairly light effects that aren’t too overwhelming for the user.

Its mellow high will gradually bring about a sense of calmness and a flow of general pain relief that numbs every part of the body. This strain not only makes you feel good, but it also tastes like delicious bubble gum when you inhale. The smoke is quite smooth, and users can easily take in puffs without coughing or choking.

Appearance and Flavor

Bubblegum plants grow to a medium height and tend to spread out fairly wide compared to other strains. The buds are light green in color and grow to be dense and long in shape.

Paired with each nug’s olive-green appearance, you can also find a blanket of orange hairs and white crystal trichomes all across the surface. Bubblegum Kush has a smell that is unique. It smells like candy and bubblegum, with a hint of citrus.

The flavor is very similar to the aroma, just less intense. As you take a deep breath in, waves of sweetness and lemon, with a hint of floral, will wash over your tongue. On the exhale, you’ll notice the same profile of sweet fruity flavors along with light herbal notes.

Medical Benefits

Bubblegum is helpful in treating a wide range of mental and physical ailments. For example, this strain can be used for conditions such as chronic stress due to its ability to lessen and melt away worries. Chronic stress is usually a result of anxiety, and the euphoric, calming effects of bubblegum can easily aid in boosting one’s mood and promoting a sense of mental stability.

This strain can also reduce psychomotor agitation, which results from ADD and ADHD. Bubblegum is also beneficial for those suffering from musculoskeletal pain. Its moderate levels of THC can help ease back and neck pain.

It can also ease neuropathic pain and other related conditions such as fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy, and MS pain. In addition, this strain is useful for treating inflammatory conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis.

For patients suffering from appetite loss due to cancer treatments or an eating disorder, bubblegum can stimulate hunger cues and ease any pain associated with digestion. This strain is also good for people who can’t sleep because it can calm the mind and relax the body. With Bubblegum’s decompressing effects, you’re sure to get a good night’s rest.


It’s quite easy to grow weed from Bubblegum cannabis seeds, with this strain being widely celebrated for its high yields. If you plan on growing outdoors, you will need to be in a sunny and dry Mediterranean environment.

It is a fairly simple and easy process, although you should be aware that this strain grows lateral branches, so trimming those and providing support can be a bit labor-intensive compared to plants that grow straight up. Bubblegum Kush seeds do really well in hydroponic environments, so if that’s something you’re considering, it can definitely help increase your yield.

This strain’s flowering period is about 8 weeks, but it can be shortened through a few growing methods such as SOG or ScrOG. At harvest, you can expect a whopping 24 to 26 ounces per square meter! This is definitely on the upper end of yields produced by cannabis plants, so you can see why growers are enamored with Bubblegum Kush!
