The name Bubble Gum strain may conjure memories of your youth, gnawing your way through Halloween candy, but this variant isn’t one to be taken lightly. It’s rather potent, packed with THC, and will leave you with a couch-locked full-body stone. 

Before the heaviness kicks in, Bubble Gum weed will induce feelings of blissful but hazy creativity and euphoria. Recreational stoners rather than medical tokers predominantly use the strain. 

It’s sweet and fruity in both flavor and aroma, which makes it a delicious complement to your evening dessert. Let’s find out more about this strain.

Bubblegum strain description 

Bubble Gum strain is a variant with mysterious origins and a flavor that’s loved by those with a sweet tooth. There’s consensus that the Old Time Bubble Gum originated in Indiana in the early 1970s, but the details are unknown. 

If you enjoy this type of cannabis, you might also like these similar options.

  • Bubble Gum OG strain 
  • Sour Bubble Gum strain
  • Bubble Gum Kush strain
  • Pink Bubble Gum strain
  • Bubble Gum Cookies strain
  • Orange Bubble Gum strain 
  • Bubble Gum Gelato strain

There’s a subtle hint of Bubblegum flavor in each of these marijuana variants, despite the dominance of the alternative flavors. Trichomes and bright orange pistils cover the Bubble Gum strain buds.

Bubble Gum has bagged several awards. The strain won the High Times Cannabis Cup four times and snagged prizes at the Expogrow and Spannabis Champions Cup. 

The THC levels in this marijuana variant can reach as high as 20%, making it pretty potent. 

The effects are typically euphoric and uplifting, bringing about creativity and hazy mental focus. The cerebral effects are largely due to the Bubble Gum strain’s sativa properties the hybrid contains. 

These feelings are soon followed by laziness and couch-lock. Some tokers also report being chatty. 

It’s best to kick back with this strain once all your important projects are completed and you need to unwind. Stoners usually save the Bubble Gum weed strain for early evenings when they want to relax while their minds wander freely

The fragrance and flavor translate well with fruity floral notes that are reminiscent of candy. It’s creamy and not likely to induce coughing in veteran users. 

Medical tokers report benefits from Bubble Gum. The conditions typically treated include:

  • Depression 
  • Anxiety 
  • Arthritis 
  • Inflammation 
  • Insomnia 
  • Pain
  • Migraines

Bubble Gum strain grow information

Growing the Bubble Gum weed is beginner-friendly. It’s a heavy-yielding forest green cannabis plant that has resilient properties.

The brightly colored buds are usually ready after 8 to 10 weeks, and they’re liberally coated in sticky golden resin. The best harvests are between mid-September and early October for photoperiod varieties of Bubble Gum strain. 

A wonderful attribute of this hybrid is its suitability for growing in indoor and outdoor settings. Greenhouse growers report success with these crops when using a Sea of Green (SOG) setup. 

Bubble Gum is also easy to maintain outside, provided that the climate is warm, sunny, and not too humid. The strain can grow hassle-free if you keep these handy tips in mind.

  • Utilize a SOG setup when growing indoors.
  • This cannabis strain flourishes in warm, moderate temperatures
  • Low humidity is best, as too much moisture breeds mold even in hardy strains.
  • If you’re growing a photoperiod plant, don’t harvest later than early October

This girl took off in FF Strawberry Fields and never looked back! She grew to about 4′ tall and yielded 2 oz of super delicious mind-bending flowery goodness from under an SF1000!(100w) Very pleased and will be getting a brighter light!

Ed – Bubble Gum autoflower


I had 7 of 8 germinations for Bubblegum. My order of ‘Cheap Weed Seeds’ included 8x Jack Herer, 8x Lavender, 8x Bubblegum, and a bonus of 4 Gelato. So far, all the Bubblegum plants are very healthy. My order was processed quickly considering the Covid situation and was received in a plain unmarked package arousing no suspicion.

Robert F – Bubble Gum feminized

I had some germination problems, but received replacement seeds very fast. I did receive four geleto seeds with my order. All four germinated and are my strongest plants. The center plant is a free geleto seeds. With the exception of the gemination problem that was fixed. I am happy with my purchase. Will definitely order again and recommend to my friends.
