Bubblegum is an old school strain of mysterious origin that conquered every smoker’s heart with its sweet taste and powerful indica stone combined with a sativa euphoric high.
Thought to have first emerged in the 1970’s, little is actually known about the origin of Bubblegum, other than that it originated in Indiana, USA. From here it made its way across the United States to be later mixed with an unknown indica. Bubblegum then made its way over to Holland in the early 90’s, where this strain was stabilised and spread. The effort that was put into Bubblegum was worth it, with this powerhouse having won numerous awards during its life, including 2nd place for best overall strain in the 1995 and 1999 Cannabis Cups.
TASTE, SMELL . AND THE EFFECT OF BUBBLEGUM
The taste and aroma of Bubblegum are aptly summed up by its name. It produces a very sweet and berry flavored smoke that is both pungent and smooth. Being a hybrid, Bubblegum seems too perfectly blend the typical effects of both indica and sativa strains. It doesn’t take much to numb the body and move it into a couch lock, all the while taking your mind on a happy and euphoric ride.
The power and mixed effects of Bubblegum have made it popular among the medical crowd, as it is reported to be effective at relieving pain, helping with stress and anxiety, as well as depression and insomnia. Other uses reported include for treating migraines, ADHD, arthritis and bipolar disorder.
HOW TO GROW BUBBLEGUM?
So how does it grow? Well, in an indoor setting, Bubblegum has a flowering time of roughly 8-9 weeks and can produce reasonable yields on the region of 300-450g/m². Outdoors, this beauty is normally ready for harvest by the end of October and produces in excess of 300 grams per plant. Bubblegum will grow into a medium-tall plant, not too branchy.
Although the yields are comparatively small to other strains, however, the quality of the product is not to be missed. She is a good grower, and even novices should be able to get respectable results that produce high quality, old-school product. One thing we would say though is that Bubblegum has an extremely pungent odour when growing, that is not subtle in any way – so take this into account when picking somewhere to grow.

Bubble Gum Strain Description
Legendary for its bubblegum sweet smell and euphoric high the Bubble Gum strain grows into a medium tall plant, usually not too branchy (sometimes tall) and produces compact, crystal covered buds. Plants grown from seeds are very similar to one another.
Originally the Bubblegum strain was developed by growers in Indiana, USA. Later those original genetics came to the Netherlands and were given to two different seed companies. Each created their own ‘original Bubble Gum strain’ from that genetic material. The Serious Seeds Bubble Gum is more sativa like in looks and effect, a sturdy and strong plant, with the characteristic, sweet smell (truly resembling a typical bubble gum taste) and euphoric high; the original trademarks of this famous strain. The only inbred strain (not a F1 hybrid) on the Serious menu.
Bubble Gum has won 13 awards in High Times Cannabis Cups and similar festivals. In 2004 and 2005 it won 5 local and national Cups in Spain alone! In 2006 the Bubble Gum received its best award; it was named ‘Plant of the year’ by magazine ‘Soft Secrets’, because many Spanish growers won in local competitions in that year with the same plant: Bubble Gum. In September 2016 the feminized seeds of Bubble Gum have won the third place in the category Sativa at the Expogrow-Cup 2016 in Irun, Spain.
The legendary sweet strawberry flavor of this variety is well pronounced in plants grown from feminized seeds! The Bubble Gum is the motherplant of the legendary Strawberry-Banana produced by Crockett Family Farms. In November 2018 an extract from Bubble Gum made by Nectars Collective has won the FIRST place in the category Hybrids at the 4th annual Jack Herer-Cup in Las Vegas, USA.

Serious Seeds Bubble Gum – a “seriously” refined classic
Text & Photos: Green Born Identity – G.B.I.
There are several strains out in the world of cannabis genetics whose origin and further breeding process seem to be unclear. Growers get especially confused, when a certain strain is offered under the same name by two or more seed banks: who has the original one, whose are copies? The Bubblegum strain is such one contentious strain, of which at least two seed banks do offer their own versions, in this case Serious Seeds and T.H. Seeds (both residing in Amsterdam), not to mention all those internet-based criminal copy cats here. So I decided to trace back the real roots of Bubble Gum. Asking both the above-mentioned breeders resulted in two corresponding versions of the Bubble Gum`s breeding story, giving good reasons for the existence of two high-quality Bubble Gum strains: The original material was developed by a grower in Indiana (USA) during the 80ies. In 1993, this guy gave three very different female Bubble Gum plants to Adam from T.H. Sees as well as to Simon and Tony (the two splitted up shortly after, with Simon founding Serious Seeds and Tony Sagarmatha Seeds) from Cerebral Seeds. So Bubble Gum arrived in the Netherlands in the hands of three breeders. And from that moment on, different new chapters were written in the breeding history of Bubble Gum, its development kind of branched out. Three breeders – three ways of breeding: These seed meisters were going to make their own special selection out of the three different genetic types they had received. Simon reports: “As far as I know, T.H. Seeds did work further with another of those 3 plants than I did”. That`s the reason why Adam (T.H. Seeds` BG will be another story…) considers his Bubble Gum as “mostly indica”, whereas Simon puts his version into the “Mostly Sativa” category. He focused his research on two of the three lines, finally deciding for one type that should become his Bubble Gum seed strain. It took Simon five generations to end up in the desired breeding result, officially registering it then as “Bubble Gum”. He says that it is not possible to give exact sativa/indica percentages, but reveals that the genetic background of Bubble Gum consists of three different exotic sativas, amongst them Mexican and Columbian, and an Afghani indica. It is remarkable that Bubble Gum is the only inbred strain (no F1 hybrid) in the Serious menu, thus being especially uniform. Upon being asked about special considerations to Bubble Gum, Simon explained: “The bubble gum shows a remarkable uniformity in plants grown from seeds. It is a strong and beautiful plant which grows a heavy stem, you never need to tie heavy buds up. The initial stages of seedlings can be tender, and you have to take care a bit for them in that stage. It is important to not let them be overgrown by neighbouring plants which may grow faster at first. Once when about 2 weeks old, the Bubble Gums will start to pick up speed and grow as fast as other plants.” This delay in growth can be explained by the fact that the BG is an inbred strain and therefore does not have that hybrid vigour effect (faster and stronger growth) of F1 hybrids.
Keeping these hints in mind, I sow four BG seeds – only four seeds, due to the chronic congestion on my seed testing list. They really showed off the ground one day later than common, but germinated properly and simultaneously. And in fact, the overall growth speed was slow at first, but increased significantly after two weeks. When the multiple-finger leafs had been formed, their look was quite unsual: dark green in the colour (indica trait), but at the same time rather narrow and sharply serrated (sativa traits). After five weeks from germination, they had grown into medium tall plants (55-65 cm) under HPS 400 + 250 W, with few side-branching. But due to the dominating sativa content, it was clear that they would further stretch during flowering. Two plants turned out to be female and soon developed the first flower clusters after having turned the lights to 12/12. And one could quickly realize that huge top colas were about to be produced by the plants. After four weeks of flowering, the buds began to release a sweet fruity scent that was going to become more intensive from week to week, really reminding of fruity chewing gum. Also resin production had gotten into full speed, conquering more and more of the plants` surface. The buds grew into very compact resinous heads, featuring a high calyx-to-leaf ratio, thus allowing for easy harvest processing. After 58 resp. 61 days of flowering, harvest was not only easy, but also rewarding, as the two BG plants yielded 25 resp. 28 grams of finest sticky sinsemilla. As expected, they had kept on growing vertically during flowering, finally amounting to 91 resp. 102 cm. But this contributed to the formation of long-drawn, heavy yielding main colas.
The buds were pleasantly mild to smoke and had preserved some of that special fruitiness also after the drying process. No surprise that the high delivered a pretty strong sativa power dosage, with euphoric tendencies, at least it will make you blow some funny fantasy bubbles in your mind. The indica aspect, however, is also noticeable, causing a certain degree of stonedness, too. This nice mixture of both sides of the spectrum makes Serious Seeds` Bubble Gum an attractive experience, and accordingly, it has won several awards, e.g. at the High Times Cannabis Cup 1994, 1995 and 1999. It may be new to some that Bubble Gum is also a good choice for outdoor cultivation. While rather taking place on the balcony in Holland, it is also successfully practised in the great Spanish outdoors, as Simon reports:
“Bubble Gum is also liked for outdoors in Spain a lot, it will also form a very nice plant with moult resistence buds when grown outdoors here but just finishes not soon enough for my standards to call it an outdoor plant. Normal finishing date 1-15 oct.” On the whole, Serious Seeds` Bubble Gum is a very worthwhile strain to grow – indeed a “seriously” refined classic. 63 Euros for 10 seeds are certainly a good investment.
Bubble Gum Feminised Seeds
Bubble Gum is an indica-dominant cannabis strain which has a delicious flavour of strawberry bubble gum. Its long, thick, resin-coated buds are flecked with pink making an attractive sight. It is easy to grow and adapts well to all grow-media as well as cultivation techniques.
Indoors these plants remain fairly squat at 80 – 100 cm. tall, producing excellent yields of between 550 – 600 gr/m 2 in just under 8 weeks of flowering. Outdoors plants can get much bigger, 180 – 250 cm. tall, producing commensurately larger yields. Northern hemisphere harvests will be ready towards the end of September.
The scent of pink bubble gum along with strawberry gum flavours are clearly noticeable. Its THC content is around 18% and the effect delivered is very physically relaxing albeit with a mental alertness.
