  1. Hello to all you lucky, lucky legal tokers in the US from the UK, where our stupid outdated laws prevent us from using God’s gift to humans legally. Stay safe and Free The Weed all those worldwide users. Peace & love to all

  2. My bubble gum seeds came from Amsterdam. I grew them hydroponically. Over the course of smoking the result with 3 friends, three or four times, they all took turns passing out on it. They also took turns puking from it. I had a different experience…the worst case of paranoia in my life. I knew I was paranoid but still wound up taking a cold shower with clothes on then passing out for an hour.. The buzz was euphoric and very high. Loved it!!! I wish I could get more of that stuff.

  3. i just harvested my last bubble gum,i grew 5 this summer,outside in a greenhouse,each plant grew very dense buds with a beautiful cola on top,she smells great,im figuring with the 5 plants i should get around a pound of bubble gum weed,im putting them in there drying rack and i will keeo you informed on how great they come out.thanks and stay high!

  4. I live in southern Oregon I have a Bubble gum Kush, with super croping, I’m about to Harvest 3 lbs or more. my harvest date is 10-1-19. 7 for tall and 15 for Round. And yes my combs are Ripe!

  5. I also have three Bubblegum plants. All in veg, about six inches high. They don’t seem to be growing in height at all, but getting bushy as I’ve topped twice now. Does anyone have any advice on when I should flip em…? Note, Im using three gallon smart pots and I’m growing in a 2x4x5 grow tent. I have a scrog set up in tent ready to bring down to plants when need be. If I put the scrog at about a foot from the top of the medium, would that work for only having five feet of height? Plants would be 12in high then so with stretch what, maybe they would end up around two feet or so…? Any input would be helpful.
    I’m just grow for medicinal purposes. Little closet grow. Thx all, Dave

    • Dave,

      The reason your plants are not appearing to grow is that you have topped a small plant 2wice! When you do that, 2 things occur; Stress which will stifle growth and new roots establishing themselves and causing top foliage to slow down.

      I do not ever top my plants until 2 weeks before inducing the flower cycle.

      Your scrog plan seems solid. Happy growing.

  6. I got several bubble gums going in all stages. buds big resoney and a fresh snow fall on top. Easy grow with great results. great smell

  7. Rob Kim,

    All of the choices you mentioned are exactly that. Choices you as a grower has to make. You probably do not want to veg for 3 months unless you have a lot of room and you are not in a hurry to harvest. Max. Veg is generally 2 months..3 months is not out of the question but, you need to consider your grow space and harvest time frame.

    Join our forum. There are many varying opinions regarding the debates you brought up. 🙂 – I❤️GM

  8. how long should i veg bubble gum some say 3 months because it does not stretch much when put in flowering . Right now on third week of veg from seed , and they are growing strong , one more thing some say to top and some say no top, and some say soil no hydro because of mold.
