One of the pitfalls of cannabis growing is the problem involved especially if your plant is infected with molds. I grew the Bubble Gum strain on my top terrace as I couldn´t set-up a grow tent inside the house for lack of space. Last Summer, this strain got a mildew all over its leaves during the final stage of its veg, but I was able to eradicate it with a self-concocted organic spray containing baking soda and water. The bush grew healthy afterwards, harvested the buds and it went on a curing stage.
I am glad it survived that mold attack on the leaves without its quality suffering from it. This week, I got the time to sample this strain.
Appearance, smell and taste
The nugs are very good looking and soft or fluffy, so greenish in color. Those coppery-colored trichomes are plenty as you can see in the photo. The strong pungent but sweet and earthy scent easily reached my nostrils and smelled an herbal-like aroma and yeah, that bubble gum taste! It´s no wonder the breeder called it Bubble Gum.
This strain is mostly indica, with THC content between 17-19%. The grower where I got the clones from has the mother plants grown in their labs and everyone has the chance to see the plants from the outside of the shop since they are displayed in a huge window along the main road.
The paper used here is called Elements , King size rice paper with 33 leaves in the pack. It is made in Spain and is exactly the size of the joint rolling tool.
After the first two tokes, one could easily feel the numbness in the mouth...it is very relaxing and it could change your mood and become cheerful. You could feel the creativeness in you. I was surprised that I didn´t get a headache... although there is a slight dizziness , I felt I needed to do something. I would recommend to puff this late afternoon where you need the feel to relax after a day´s work.
