Bubble Gum strain
The Bubble Gum strain is legendary for its smell reminiscent of chewing gum as well as its euphoric effect. The Bubble Gum strain grows into a medium-sized cannabis plant that generally doesn’t branch out too much, allowing compact, deliciously crystal-covered buds to thrive. The cannabis strain is very stable and the plants grown from it are very similar.
Originally, the Bubblegum strain was created by cannabis breeders in Indiana, USA. A few years later, the original genetics were transferred to the Netherlands and passed on to two different seed companies. Each then bred their own ‘Original Bubble Gum’ from this genetic base material.
Serious Seeds Bubble Gum is more of a sativa in appearance and effect, a robust and strong cannabis plant, with its so characteristic sweet smell (which really resembles a typical bubble gum flavor) and euphoric high; the original trademarks of this famous strain. By the way, she is the only inbred variety (not an F1 hybrid) in Serious Seeds’ range.
Bubble Gum has won an outstanding 13 awards at High Times Cannabis Cups and similar festivals so far! In 2004 and 2005 she won 5 local and national cups in Spain alone! In 2006, Bubble Gum received its best award; it was named ‘Cannabis Plant of the Year’ by ‘Soft Secrets’ magazine because so many Spanish growers won with the same plant in local competitions that year. In September 2016, Bubble Gum feminized seeds won third place in the Sativa category at the 2016 Expogrow Cup in Irun, Spain.
The specatacular sweet strawberry flavor of this cannabis strain is very well pronounced in plants grown from feminized seeds! Incidentally, Bubble Gum is also the mother plant of the legendary Strawberry Banana, produced by Crockett Family Farms.
In November 2018, an extract of Bubble Gum produced by Nectars Collective won FIRST place in the Hybrid category at the 4th Annual Jack Herer Cup in Las Vegas, USA!
So many renowned and highly qualified testers can hardly be wrong that Bubble Gum Weed can be counted among the best in the world.
In indoor grow you can achieve up to 450g/m2. Outdoors it depends on the conditions the plant faces, but should always yield around 100g/plant and can be harvested after max 10 weeks from germination to maturity.

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.

Bear in mind, however, that its girth tends to surpass its height, and heavy branches may need support lest they break under the weight of the crystal-covered buds. Give Bubblegum Kush marijuana seeds about 8 weeks of flowering and you’ll be ecstatic with its well-above-average yield of lightly scented nugs.
