If this strain brings to mind the popular, rock-hard gum, it’s not accident, as Bazooka Joe the marijuana smells and tastes distinctly of bubblegum. There are also sweet candy notes in both the flavor and aroma. The effects are modest, as this strain has THC levels between 13% and 15% in some tests. What it lacks in THC, it definitely doesn’t make up for in CBD: That chemical has a concentration of less than 1%, making Bazooka Joe a less-than-ideal choice for seizure disorders. But it’s a good choice for novices and patients who haven’t toked in a while; the high is easy and fun. This is a sativa-dominant hybrid with a sativa/indica ratio of at least 30:70. That means an energized, euphoric head high with a mood boost and increased sociability. It can be used to treat depression, anxiety, headaches, and insomnia, an effect of the limited indica genes. Bazooka Joe is very popular among those who have tried it, but it isn’t widely available. It may show up on medical markets in the American West, but beyond that it’s scarce.
