Indiana Bubblegum
Bubble Gum's genetics may be a bit of a mystery, but this award-winning hybrid is sure to put a smile on your face. Easy to grow, flavorful, and high in THC, there's no reason not to love Bubble Gum.

Not a whole lot is known about Bubble Gum's genetics. This strain is an oldie. Rumor has it that it originated in Indiana back in the 1970s, only to later travel to Amsterdam for hybridization. Since that time, seed companies like TH Seeds bred the present-day indica-dominant version. The current Bubblegum rendition has gone on to win four High Times Cannabis Cups since 1993. The most distinct thing about Bubble Gum is its aroma. True to its name, this strain features a fruity, sweet berry smell. Users can expect a generally pleasant high from this strain. Typically, it hits like an indica. Expect decent pain relief as a smooth, easy sensation rolls through your body. Thanks to a little sativa in the mix, this strain also gained popularity for its creative and uplifting effects. You're likely to feel a nice heavy-bodied sensation coupled with quite a bit of mental stimulation. Bubble Gum is best used in the late-afternoon or early evening. It is a sedative strain, so it is not the best choice for daytime use. Those in need of appetite stimulation, stress, and pain relief will enjoy bubble gum.  Depending on where you get your seeds, you may find more sativa-dominant versions of Bubble Gum. Expect a more creative high from sativa versions, with slightly better relief for anxiety and depression.

Growing Tips

This plant is particularly sensitive to mold and rot. Be extra mindful about overwatering. If you live in a wet climate, you might want to bring this strain indoors. Expect slower growth during the vegetative stage, and faster growth while flowering. To get great terpene expression from Bubble Gum, consider growing in organic soil. This strain is a good strain for beginners, though it will require extra clipping and pruning to control height. Many Bubble Gum variations don't side branch much. But, those that do take well to sea of green (SOG) techniques and tend to produce more buds.
