A cross between Blueberry Indica and the Sativa Haze, the Grade A marijuana strain, Blue Dream, emerged as a Sativa-dominant hybrid originating in Northern California. Its history is concealed in mystery, but it is believed that it first appeared in the coastal community of Santa Cruz area and has made quite a name for itself in the medical marijuana market. In recent years, DJ Short, a veteran breeder since the early 70’s, revamped the strain calling it Azure Haze by intertwining a Silver Haze mother and a Blueberry from his collection.
If unfamiliar with the strain, the name itself may be a bit off-putting, assuming it might get one couch-locked, when in search of strain that will not necessarily get you the highest, but that can be ingested without knocking one out. Blue Dream has a balance of body relaxation with a strong cerebral focus that hits almost instantly and eases into a tranquil euphoria. It is an uplifting strain that induces feelings of happiness and creativity. There are some Blue Dream phenotypes, though, that carry more of an Indica look and feel, but nevertheless, it is still dominated by its Sativa qualities. For some novice users, its potency may be a bit overwhelming at first with some speedy qualities with its THC averaging to about 17%, but in the end, it usually finishes with a relaxing Indica feeling that slowly exudes over the body. Its effects typically last between two to three hours.
Blue Dream normally gets its best flavor when grown in the soil. Its aroma can be described as sweet, floral and/or fruity, particularly berry. And much like its scent, its taste has been said to be a deep fruity or floral flavor like grapes or lavender. Blue Dream evolves slowly, but picks up the pace when it begins to flower between 55 to 65 days. By then, it will start to stretch and branch out more than it initially did, producing potent and heavy harvests. With its blue and purple hues, its buds are dense and popcorn-like and covered in orange hairs.
Highly effective for pain, Blue Dream is among one the favorites of medical marijuana strains, mostly due to its ability to be used as a daytime medicine without causing one to feel sedated. Blue Dream is best used to treat pain, depression, nausea, high stress levels and any other ailments that require a dosage of THC. It can also been used for migraines, ADD/ADHD, and bipolar disorder.
Blue Dream is a great strain for daytime or early evening usage to aid in taking off the edge of a hard day; while one is preparing to wind down, Blue Dream will help the body decline into a restful night of sleep.
