Bubble Gum – Indica

The Bubble Gum originated in Indiana in the 1970s. After making the rounds in the States, the genetics were taken to Holland during the 1990s, where a stable interbred variety was developed. Named Bubble Gum from the start, this variety quickly acquired a reputation for its sweetness, so much that the name “Bubble Gum” has been widely borrowed for all sorts of seeds and weed. The winner of many accolades, Bubble Gum has placed repeatedly in the High Times Cannabis Cup: 3rd place in 1994 for best coffeeshop product, 2nd place for best bioproduct and 2nd for the overall Cannabis Cup in 1995, and 2nd place again in 1999 for the overall Cannabis Cup.

Kush

kush-marijuana-term

Stoner Dictionary | Kush

Kush: noun 1. a particular type of cannabis indica plant

Origin: The Hindu Kush Mountains, Pakistan/Afghanistan

Example: “I can smell that sweet kush from a mile away.”

The indica dominant strain we call kush has a big family but finds its origins from landrace plants mostly in Northern Pakistan and Central Afghanistan as well as parts of North-Western India. The Hindu-Kush Mountains are the supposed birth place of the beloved kush strain which now has many sub strains and hybrids. Also known as Pāriyātra Parvata or Paropamisadae, this mountain range stretches between Central Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan and is 800m (2625ft) long. The etymology behind the name “Hindu Kush” has been speculated to mean “Indian Killer.” This name was supposedly given to a particular pass by the Persians because it was a place where many of their Indian slaves had perished during the harsh mountain winters. In Uzbek, Kush also means bird. Whether or not there is any correlation between these supposed meanings and our familiar kush, it is always fun to speculate. It was brought to the United States in the 1970s and has become a staple for indica smokers all over the world.

One of the most distinguishing traits of the kush plant is its aroma. While there are several types of kush now each possessing a unique scent, most kush will have a deep skunky and earthy smell with notes of sweetness.

Some will have hints of pine or citrus/ammonia. Strains like Lavender Kush or Pure Kush have been known to have a very floral scent, almost fragrant enough to wear as a perfume. Oddly enough, there is a line of Kush perfumes and colognes that have been released. If you are a true lover of that signature kush aroma, pick up a bottle of that Kush fragrance for your mate and enjoy the scent even when you are not smoking it!

Many of the popular types we know today include: Purple, Master, Pure, OG, Afghani, Hindu, Lavender, Mango and Bubba Kush. OG Kush is one of the most popular derivations and was made popular in Southern California, most famously by rapper B-Real of Cypress Hill. It does possess some sativa qualities but smokes more like an indica and is usually recommended for the indica smoker.

True Bubba Kush is a strain that has become hard to find.

There are many strains out there that claim to be Bubba but are often just named as such by the vendor or dispensary. A real Bubba cut is hard to come by so if you find it, snatch it up! Not all plants are indica, many of them are hybrids but will always have indica dominant genes. Kush is a strain that is loved by almost all weed smokers and is thought of as being royalty in the strains of marijuana. This is because it’s usually high quality and gives the user their money’s worth. The preferred strain by many true smokers and remains respected by many!

Indica

indica-marijuana-strain

Stoner Dictionary | Indica

Indica: noun 1. a type of marijuana plant that provides a potent body high

Example: “I prefer indica strains because they help me sleep.”

Characterized as shorter, bushier plants with thick, broad leaves providing a body high that can feel heavy and relaxing.

They can be found naturally in the mountains of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Western Asia, and in some parts of the United States. The New Latin etymology of the word “indica” comes from Inducus which is defined as “pertaining to India.” As one of indica’s countries of origin, this seems to be an apt title for this heavy hitting type of marijuana.

One of the most popular and familiar strains is the kush plant and its many derivations. The kush plant was named after its region of origin which is the Hindu Kush Mountain Range that spans across Pakistan and Afghanistan. Pure indica is not a hybrid or sativa and will probably send you crashing if you are not accustomed to its heavy feeling. Unlike the uplifting feeling of cannabis sativa, indica slows down the body and mind, which is most desirable to those who are using marijuana for medicinal purposes. One of the most common descriptions of an indica high is “couch-lock.” Somewhat self-explanatory, this term indicates that once you hit it just hope you don’t have anything important to do afterwards. If you smoke to relieve pain or go to sleep, indica is the right choice as it generally has a higher THC and CBD content than most sativa strains. While CBD is not the psychotropic ingredient in marijuana, it is the most beneficial to your health. Indica strains are best used to relieve insomnia, multiple sclerosis, nerve damage, migraines, anxiety, chronic pain, appetite loss, glaucoma, cataracts, asthma (when used with a vaporizer or Volcano), chemotherapy, Parkinson’s disease and many, many other ailments. Indica strains are also most commonly used for the cultivation and production of hash and other marijuana concentrates, as indicas tend to have the highest THC and CBD percentage.

There are many types of pure, single strain indicas, Northern Lights being one of the most popular and most beloved, but the majority of them are hybrid. They will often be referred to as an indica dominant hybrid.

This means that both types of marijuana can be felt but the indica percentage is higher and felt more. There are some hybrids that are a double cross, meaning that they are 100% indica, but not a single strain. At medical marijuana dispensaries, they will often be listed under the indica section even though they are technically hybrids. Many dispensaries choose this classification for the sake of convenience as most patients do not care if it is a single strain or hybrid indica, as long as it gives them the desired effect. The mixing of indica and sativa and then even further crosses is what produces many of the strains we have today. Still there is nothing like lighting A joint at end of a long day.
