Update: this is a very old article highlighting our early stages of cannabinoid testing. Cannabinoid research has made a lot of progress since these articles, we have since also tested all of our strains for terpenes and cannabinoids.
Medical Marijuana Strain Analysis: Bubblegun
We have had our second strain tested, the Bubblegun, and below you will find the results. This Medical Marijuana Strains has a flowering period of 8-9 weeks with a ferocious growing stage, which results in her reaching a height of 1,00-1,20 metres. The buds are tight and bulging, greasy and highly resinous. She is of a lightgreen color with narrow, serrated fingers that are widely set apart. Both are definite Sativa traits. That this is a Sativa dominant strain was confirmed by the test. The botanical test showed that Bubblegun contains Cryptics 1,3 and 4 bevat. These are Sativa markers. The DNA fingerprint of the Bubblegun was compared with all the known chemotypes and the conclusion is that this strain is a cross between the chemotypes WW/PP and CBC-Haze. This DNA fingerprint is based on the measured percentages of each of the cannabinoids.
Present cannabinoids in our medical marijuana strain: Bubblegun
It was B Class sample quality-wise. If it had been an A grade sample than obviously the THC percentage as well as the percentages of other cannabinoids would have been higher. The present cannabinoids were cryptic 1, cryptic 3, cryptic 4, THC, THCV, CBG and CBC.
THC:16,1% (low for this chemotype)

Interpretation Of Medical Marijuana Testing Bubblegun
The results of the analysis of this strain can be interpreted as follows. Based on the THC % and the presence of the Sativa markers (Sativa dominant characteristics) cryptics 1, 3 and 4 as well as the sativa pigmentation (color) of the sample of medical marijuana leads to the conclusion that this is a Sativa dominant strain. The cannabinoid fingerprint with the presence of THC paired with CBC leads to the qualification of a chemo-genotype WW x CBC-Haze.
Medical Marijuana Strain Effects: Bubblegun
Based on this analysis we can give solid advice regarding medical benefits of Cannabis to dispensaries in the US. These dispensaries can provide medical marijuana to patients that have a Medical Marijuana Card. The relatively medium THC %, low CBG content and low CBC % will result in a fast appearing and strongly activating, clear headbuzz in low dosage. Because of the low contents of both CBG and CBC the headbuzz will be immediately felt as a THC high and will only turn into a bodybuzz indica effect with higher dosages (>1gr).

Therapeutical Properties Of Spliff Bubblegun
Here’s a summary of benefits of marijuana of our Bubblegun. As a strain it helps really well to diminish neuropathic pains (B+ class; medium THC) significantly. In higher dosages the Bubblegun will stimulate appetite and will cause sleepiness (helpful with insomnia). When used for neuropathic pains you should preferably use method #1 (oral) or #2 (vaporizing) to get the best results.
Application methods of medical marijuana:
- Joints (with tobacco, resulting in a more indica bodystone)
- Pure joints
- Whole trichome extraction, as tea for instance
- Edibles (usually prepared from isolated cannabinoids)
