What is Bubblegum?
Bubblegum Kush is a mostly indica strain with thoroughly relaxing effects and a tangy flavor profile. Created in the Netherlands by Bulldog Seeds, this hybrid is a cross between the fruity Bubble Gum and none other than OG Kush. With a high that leans toward the relaxing end of the spectrum, this is definitely a strain better suited to kicking back than to being out and about. Bubblegum Kush’s THC content has been measured at between 14% and 23%.
Bubblegum Kush Strain
Bubblegum Kush offers a slow, creeping high that may take as long as 15 minutes to reveal its presence. Eventually, smokers may notice a flushing in the cheeks, as well as a tingle around the temples and forehead. Some also describe an increase in salivation. Once these sensations pass, a well-prepared consumer can settle into a calm and even headspace. Any outside worries and stressors begin to dissolve into the background. Physical signs of anxiety are alleviated as well — users may feel a release of a lingering muscular tension, as well as an improved capacity for breathing deeply and easily. Bubblegum Kush is not known to trigger intense bouts of deep thinking. As such, it’s neither liable to nudge smokers toward paranoia nor is it appropriate for achieving productivity. Instead, mellow-minded users can savor this bud for its ability to intensify the perception of certain sights and sounds. It can be a great way to appreciate a favorite album or a trippy or scary movie. Otherwise, Bubblegum Kush’s mental effects are marked by a giddiness that can be exuberant, if not exactly high-energy. The strain’s giggly mood can be very much at home in rowdy social situations. As the high wears on or as dosage is increased, Bubblegum Kush tends to paralyze smokers with couch-lock; in the right circumstances, it can even pack them off to dreamland. Because of its mostly sedative vibes, Bubblegum Kush is best savored after dark.
