With a taste this sweet you might think that Melon Gum will be a schoolyard high: playful and easy on the lungs. Don’t be fooled, as this is an intense high that will leave you feeling airy and giggly while your feet are swept from under you and couch lock takes the place of motivation.
Doctor Underground took to the lab to create this delicious bud by crossing Lavender and Bubble Gum giving us the best qualities of both parents. THC levels of this strain can be considered normal anywhere between 15% and 23% with a lean towards the higher end of that range. With a flavor palette filled with strawberry bubblegum, melon, and hints of tart lemon, it’s no wonder this bud is such a trickster. The nugs are minty green with long clementine colored hairs and a full frost of white sticky trichomes giving the gum name a double meaning.
Upon the first puff, you’ll feel Melon Gum’s effects. Suddenly energized, users will find themselves extremely talkative and giggly, albeit hazy and stoned. With this feeling, there is a surprising amount of clarity that is described as short-lived and easily replaced by deep couch lock and laziness. Hopefully you’ve grabbed your snacks and picked your movie beforehand, because you aren’t moving once this feeling sets in. Because of this, Melon Gum is best smoked in the evening or before bed.
Medicinal users love this strain for fast relief from insomnia and late night stress or anxiety. The hard-hitting sleepiness will keep you resting peacefully throughout the night. Other benefits of this strain’s sedative-like properties are that it is helpful for chronic pain, muscle spasms, and mild to moderate headaches. Enjoy this flavorful bud at any experience level, but be aware that it is a sleeper agent and may be too powerful for new users in some cases.
