About this Indica Strain

Don’t be fooled by this strain’s name. It’s derived not from the seafood, but from its scent that’s reminiscent of bubble gum. Consumers enjoy its sweet and fruity scent that transfers over into its taste when its smoked.

When you look at the buds of Gumbo, you might notice how most are fairly round and covered with deep shades of greens and burnt orange pistils. THC levels tend to average in the high teens and low 20s while both veteran and novice consumers have said they’ve enjoyed this strain’s effects.

Gumbo’s effects tend to sedate or increase appetite according to reviewers, and some consumers have used it to help with insomnia or eating disorders along with pain management and muscle spasms.

Higher levels of the terpene Beta-Myrcene can be found in Gumbo, which also might explain why it leads to sedation, as Myrcene has been correlated with sleepiness or a "couch-lock" effect.
