Name: Blue Dream
Genetics: Blueberry x Haze
Blue Dream is a sativa-dominant hybrid (80/20) that emanated from the stony beach community of Santa Cruz, CA. Blue Dream is a cross between Blueberry and Haze. In recent years, the strain has become quite popular, and many cannabis users flock to the Blue Dream Strain for its amazing taste and long lasting effects (2-3 hours).
You will find Blue Dream on most dispensary menus throughout California due to the strong, energetic head-high, which makes the strain a perfect daytime option. The Blueberry (indica) provides a mild, very nice body-high, but also a powerful, focused experience from the more dominant Haze (sativa).
Looks and Smell
Usually Blue Dream buds are slightly larger than a piece of popcorn and somewhat dense. The buds contain a mild tinge of blue, but are mostly medium-green colored with clusters of orange pistils. When done right, Blue Dream will appear to be frosted with a thick layer of sticky trichromes. A slight sage aroma comes from the bag, but mostly that is overshadowed by the candy-like sweetness that is unique to the Blue Dream strain.
The Blue Dream strain is popular for (and I can attest to this) alleviating all types of stress and anxiety. The taste is light and fruity with blueberry notes and gets a bit spicy upon exhale. Sometimes it can be difficult finding a strain that maintains that delicate balance of head and body high, yet Blue Dream with its uplifting and head-focused effects seems to have this pleasant symmetry. Like the effects, the smoke is very smooth, making for a perfectly happy and awake long-lasting daytime smoke.
Blue Dream is perfect for use as morning medication, giving users the energy and uplifted mood needed to tackle the day. Blue Dream is effective in treating mood, stress, and anxiety disorders, such as PTSD or chronic depression. The body-high the strain provides makes it a good choice for daytime pain relief as well.
Blue Dream has also been known to induce munchies, making it useful for those who suffer from nausea or loss of appetite. Blue Dream is a preferred strain for those looking for a cost effective, long lasting, easy to find strain.
It's popular among growers for its potentially high yields, but definitely not for beginners (spider mites loves these guys). Overall Blue Dream is a great smoke to help unwind after a long day, and will be in my rotation for the forseeable future.
