One major goal for our educational Medical Patient Homegrown Reviews series is to showcase strains that medical patients otherwise would not know about so that patients can make a more informed decision on which strains best serve their medical needs. In this Homegrown Review, John Grow #34 tells us about a strain I am now interested in running as my own homegrown: Lemon Bubblegum.
Lemon Bubblegum is a cross of Lemon Skunk and Indiana Bubblegum that was then backcrossed with the Lemon Skunk. We could not get a better source to tell us about this strain because John Grow #34 bred it himself. Founder of 34 Mongrels Genetics, John Grow #34 started breeding seeds to help those battling cancer. After realizing he had a foundation for a genetics company, he started 34 Mongrels Genetics to broaden his support for those in need.
“The goal of the Lemon Bubblegum was to soften the ‘chemical’ lemon while still retaining a strong natural lemon,” John Grow #34 said. “I think the lemon flavor may be stronger than the original.” For those that love that natural sweet and sour lemon flavor, this strain is a must try.
The long light-green pinecone-shaped buds fill the air with sweet lemon and back notes of sour citrus and skunk. The flavor hits first with the same sweet and sour lemon with added notes of skunk and tangy citrus, especially on the inhale. The exhale unloads the lemon citrus and finishes with sweet bubblegum and faint notes of earthy pepper, berries, and floral herbs. The aftertaste lingers with citrus lemon and sweet bubblegum.
The potent effects are cerebral, uplifting, euphoric, motivating, clearheaded, and fit our Work Sativa series to a T. The head high sits heavy in the top of the head and eyes, and the body buzz slowly builds until a heavy relaxation takes over the muscles and joints. Overall, the effects best suit morning, day, and afternoon use, or whenever a mental boost is needed.
