The Bubble Gum originated in India in the 1970s. After making the rounds in the States, the genetics were taken to Holland during the 1990s, where a stable interbred variety was developed. Named Bubble Gum from the start, this variety quickly acquired a reputation for its sweetness, so much that the name “Bubble Gum” has been widely borrowed for all sorts of seeds and weed.
There are two typical Bubble Gum structures: a pole plant with a main branch and minimal side branching, and amore natural evergreen shape with more branching from the main stem. Plants with almost no side branching should be forced to flower early and clipped to control height. Needless to say, these branchless beauties lend themselves perfectly to a sea of green system. Plants that exhibit branching are happy left with longer maturation time, the plants will thank you with a higher yield.
A slow starter with less initial vigor than an f1 hybrid, Bubble Gum needs extra germination time. But don’t veg for too long – she tends to stretch during flowering. Serious recommends indoor soil methods for a healthier harvest. Sporting beefy colas and stems strong enough to support them, Bubble Gum gains red hues at maturation. You may be surprised by how much the scent reminds you of genuine bubblegum.
The winner of many accolades, Bubble Gum has placed repeatedly in the High Times Cannabis Cup: 3rd place in 1994 for best coffeeshop product, 2nd place for best bioproduct and 2nd for the overall Cannabis Cup in 1995, and 2nd place again in 1999 for the overall Cannabis Cup.
