Homegrown Bubble Gum Strain Review
This is a hard hitter
So it is about time I did a review on the last Bubblegum strain that I grew. It has been curing for a full month now and I have tried it out twice so far and I am really loving this strain.
It has a very strong sweet and sugary smell to it. It really doesn't smell too much like any of the other weed I have grown, which is pretty awesome. I use a Volcano when I smoke, which keeps the flavor very pure and it has a great sweet taste that isn't harsh at all.
When I was trimming these buds, I intentionally left most of the sugar leaves on because they had quite a bit of trichomes on them. Most people trim the sugar leaves off because they can be a bit harsh when smoking these tiny leaves compared to the actual inner portions of the buds. But with the Volcano, I don't have to worry about harshness at all because it doesn't burn the plant, but instead it just heats it up so the cannabinoids are released into a vapor.
I have said it before that I prefer a good balance of amber trichomes as compared to having the majority of them be cloudy white. The amber trichomes are higher in CBN, which can have more of a medicinal effect and as you can see, these buds are just covered in amber trichomes.
The effect of these amber trichomes give you a very nice body high that just melts away your pain and stress. This is a perfect strain for relaxing at the end of the day as you prepare for bed. This is not one that I would be able to do early in the day if I had anything I needed to get done because this is a heavy hitter.
The mental high can be pretty strong at times and can sneak up on you. The average THC levels for this strain are between 13-15% but can get up to 19%. I am not sure what the THC levels are for the buds I have grown, but I think they might be on the lower side. Now that isn't saying that it is a weak one though. The CBN in those amber trichomes give you a VERY strong body high.
At times it can be so strong that you are locked into the couch. Being locked into the couch can be good sometimes, especially for movie time. But be prepared to notice a lot of things in movies that you normally wouldn't. I smoked this last night and then we watched the first Ice Age movie and I noticed so many different things in that movie. I had never noticed how many clever one liner jokes there were in there or that there was music scored throughout the entire movie, making is a bit of a musical without the singing.
Anyways, I am getting a bit sidetracked. This strain is pretty awesome and is one of my favorites that I have grown. I will be buying more of these seeds in the future when I am done with the grows that I already have planned.
Being able to grow my own cannabis has been a blessing because I have been saving so much money by not having to purchase any cannabis from dispensaries. Plus the stuff I have been growing seems a lot better than any of the stuff I have gotten from the dispensary before. I still have the Northern Lights and Blueberry that I have been curing for a couple weeks to try. I am excited for the Blueberry because that plant had some amazing looking buds. I am also glad that I have more Northern Lights because that is one of my all time favorites. Hopefully this batch stacks up against the previous ones.
trichomes are really brownish ! i still got one plant left to cut. i will let this last one get at least 30% ammber before cut, let's see how it goes !
this volcano, and similar gadgets seems great due not burning. But i think i would miss all the ritual, rolling, passing etc.. and i would probably smoke much more since its quick and easy to go.
nice pictures. Bubble gum is not a usual strain around here. but i do like these sweet sugary strains. i got 3 Durban poison seeds from dutch passion for my next grow, im excited =D
Ya, having a nice balance of amber and milky is the way to go. That is what is so good about growing your own weed is that you can get the ratio that you want and need.
The volcano is amazing. You get so much more of the plants cannabinoids using one. I never cared for burning it and smoking, so this works perfect for me.
I sir want to smoke this! Love the red tint in it. I forget what chemical does that, but it’s similar to the chemical that turns buds purple. And it’s a natural occurring chemical. Have to state that because some people get so but hurt over certain things lol. Nice work bro!
You should come and visit. Then I could hook you up with some. This stuff turned out way better than I thought it would have. And ya, the coloring in it is really nice.

Can't wait for the Blueberry.. mine is growing in the garden
I am hoping the blueberry is good. I will be trying mine in a few days. It might be a good 4th of July strain.
I'll be on the look out
nice work on and good colors ;))
I almost knocked my monitor off the table with my nose trying to get a digital whiff, but this effort was futile. Amazing close-ups, absolutely beautiful, but I'd much rather smell.
