Introduction to Blue Dream
Blue Dream is a classic sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain, known for its calm euphoria and powerful relief of medical symptoms. It’s both physically and mentally relaxing without usually making people sleepy, so a lot of patients recommend that it’s best experienced in the daytime.
This strain can give many people energy and motivation, as well as helping them overcome obstacles like pain or anxiety, so they can go about their day feeling better. Read on to find out more about this incredibly uplifting strain and the ways it has helped improve the lives of those in the medical cannabis community.
Parent Strains – Where Does Blue Dream Come From?
Blue Dream is a cross of its beloved parent strains Blueberry X Haze. Although Blueberry is a relaxing indica strain on its own, when bred with a Haze sativa plant the outcome is a sativa-leaning hybrid strain. The effects vary between those commonly associated with sativa and indica strains.
This potent strain originated in California, and has become widely popular on the West Coast. The THC level can range anywhere from 17-24% on average.
The Blue Dream cannabis plant is known for being an easy strain to grow, so it’s quite ideal for those who are new to growing their own medicine. The plant’s flowering time is at about 10 weeks, the yield is high and they can grow very tall – upwards of 1.5m!
Appearance/Scent/Flavour – What Does Blue Dream Look, Smell & Taste Like?
The buds of a Blue Dream cannabis plant will generally be long, bright green and fluffy, with amber hairs and a blue hue. The nugs are usually also generously dusted in trichomes.
Most of the time, Blue Dream will have a certain sweet, berry-like flavour and scent that comes from its Blueberry indica parent. There is also an herbal flavour that is reminiscent of the Haze sativa parent. Many people report finding a vanilla flavour and scent as well.
