Medical Benefits Bubble Gum
Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite, reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma.

How to Grow Bubble Gum
As a beginner-friendly strain, Bubble Gum is low maintenance but best grown indoors due to possible fungal complications when grown outdoors. On average, plants grow to a medium height and produce tight, crystal-covered buds with a high yield per square meter.
