The exact lineage and genetics of Bubble Gum remain a mystery. However, the strain’s history began in Indiana, where its original grower gave three different Bubble Gum plants to three Netherlands breeders — Adam of T.H. Seeds, and Cerebral Seeds’ Simon and Tony (who eventually split to form Serious Seeds and Sagarmatha Seeds, respectively). In the Netherlands, each breeder cultivated a slightly different Bubble Gum phenotype. Adam at T.H. Seeds describes his version as “mostly Indica,” while Simon at Cerebral Seeds considers his variation of the strain “mostly Sativa.” Bubble Gum has won 13 awards, including 2nd at High Times Cannabis Cup in 1995, 1st Outdoor at Spannabis Cup in 2005, 1st Outdoor at Spannabis Cup in 2006 and 1st Hybrid at the 4th annual Jack Herer Cup in 2018. Today, both regular and feminized seeds are available from Serious Seeds, and Bubble Gum is the only inbred strain offered by the seed bank. Simon reports Bubble Gum seeds produce a stable, uniform grow of strong, sturdy plants with thick stems. It lists the strain as both an outdoor and indoor cultivar, with an indoor flowering time of 56-63 days. It’s said to emit a sweet, bubble gum fragrance and carry a prominent strawberry flavor when it comes from feminized seeds.
