Blue Dream is one of California’s favorite medicinal and recreational strains that’s loved for its mellow, perfectly balanced, mind and body high.
Heritage & Genetics: Blue Dream is a mix of Blueberry Indica and Super Silver Haze. It’s rumored to have been created in a medical lab, somewhere in the sunny state of California. Whether this is true or not, doesn’t really matter. The fact remains this 60/40 sativa hybrid is famed for its many medicinal applications and mellow, well-balanced effects.
Flavor & Aroma: Thanks to its Blueberry Indica heritage, Blue Dream has a lovely sweet berry-scented aroma and flavor profile, with a hint of vanilla somewhere in the background. The SSH properties are particularly noticeable on the exhale, where the spicy mango and herbal combination meets a gratifying, sharp earthy tang.
Effect: Blue Dream has been hailed for providing the perfect balance between indica and sativa effects. The high produced by Blue Dream is neither speedy or trippy as experienced with some strong sativas, nor does it give you that intense lethargy commonly induced by the indica flower. What you do get is a blissfully relaxed feeling soothes both your body and cerebral cortex.
Medical: Aside from it’s balanced high, Blue Dream has also been praised for its therapeutic uses. The uplifting, energizing and mood-lifting effects of her sativa genetics can be a potential aid to those coping with stress and symptoms of depression or PTSD. It is also an effective strain for pain management and has been suggested to help temper headaches and migraines. Meanwhile, Blue Dream’s indica genetics may help reduce inflammation.
Grow characteristics: Blue Dream loves the sunny outdoors. That’s why you best stick her in a greenhouse or grow tent if you are situated in a northern, colder climate. She’s an easy plant to work with, even for the newest growers amongst us. You needn’t fear over-feeding or over-pruning her because she bounces back effortlessly. Blue Dream has a tendency to grow tall with plenty of side branches that carry heavy buds so you might want to use a sea of green setup. The only thing you need to be extra watchful for are spider mites.
