Gumbo is an indica weed strain made by crossing two unknown strains. Gumbo is named for its signature bubblegum flavor. This strain produces relaxing and sleepy indica effects. Gumbo features a piney aroma with a smooth finish. Medical marijuana patients who suffer from aches and pains tell us they often choose Gumbo. This strain has a reputation for increasing appetite, so make sure you keep some snacks handy while you partake. According to growers, Gumbo flowers into colorful nugs with hues of purple, blue, and dark green with above average trichome coverage.
The effects of Gumbo, while quite powerful, are still very typical of an Indica-leaning hybrid strain. The high begins with an intense bout of couch lock, which will leave you anchored in place no matter where you’re sitting. Thus, Gumbo is most often used by those who are consuming indoors on a sofa with the sole intention of watching TV and spacing out for the ultimate level of relaxation.
Many have reported the high from a bit of this bud lasting as long as two hours! This bud is one of those, “sesh” buds, where a little bit of planning should take place before sparking up. Make sure you treat yourself kindly to a few cold drinks (the more variation the better!) and tasty snacks because this bud is going to get you hungry! Although the smoke is quite smooth, most find they have a better experience all around if they have a drink for between hits.
