Genetics

Bubble Bomb is a feminized, indica dominant strain. With a balance of 70% indica to 30% sativa, Bubble Bomb leans heavily towards the indica side. This is what gives it that lingering sleepy high, and a fully relaxed body.

Despite that, it isn’t too heavy, and the side effects are minimal. Most users should find Bubble Bomb an easy strain to get along with.

Origins

As you can probably guess from the name, Bubble Bomb was created by the people at Bomb Seeds in the Netherlands. And they really knocked it out of the park with this one.

Bubble Bomb is a fantastic combination of a potent hit, an easygoing high, and a delicious flavor. Bubble Bomb isn’t always easy to get your hands on, but it’s totally worth the extra effort.

Strain Appearance

Bubble Bomb is an attractive bud, with lumpy and dense nugs.

The overall coloring is an earth forest green, with only a few sparse orange hairs. Round lumps characterize the overall appearance, with a fine layer of tiny white crystal trichomes to finish.

Strain Flavor

Alongside the high, the flavor is one of the best reasons to indulge in Bubble Bomb. It has a lingering sweet finish that’s blended with some richer flavors to create something mouthwatering.

Like the name suggests, Bubble Bomb has a bubblegum tang that makes up most of the flavor. This sugary sweetness is delicious, but Bubble Bomb isn’t just a simple flavoring.

As it burns, you start to get the tang of lemon and citrus, which adds an extra dimension to the bubblegum finish. Underneath all that, you might just be able to pick up an earthy note. It gives the bud some depth, but doesn’t interfere with the sweetness.

Bubble Bomb is once tasted, never forgotten. Anyone who’s a fan of sweeter strains will enjoy the way Bubble Bomb unfurls on the tongue. When you add on the sweet high, Bubble Bomb is a sugar treat.

Strain Aroma

Like the flavor, Bubble Bomb has a sweet aroma that’s reminiscent of bubblegum. As it burns, you’ll start to find that sweet tang is joined by a slight undertone of citrus, particularly lemon.

Overall, the aroma is sweet, slightly sugary, but with some soft fruit notes of apricot. There’s also a slight hint of mint, which adds a freshness and earthiness to the sugary scent.
