Some of the persons suffering from chronic illness are still unable to live their day to day lives as normal. Medical marijuana is a great addition to a routine that needs an extra boost to get relief. Blue Dream, a cannabis cultivar that has sativa-dominant effects, is a great option for qualified patients who want quick symptom relief with full-body relaxation.

Blue Dream

Blue Dream, as described by BDS Analytics, is a cross between the cultivars Blueberry and Haze. It is an everpopular favorite among consumers across the board and has been the #1-selling strain in both Washington and Colorado. Clones of Blue Dream root quickly and consistently. It produces high yields of flowers – typically around two pounds per plant– and is resistant to powdery mold, making it a favorite plant to grow for growers throughout the world.

Another reason for this strains popularity among cultivators is that it is a clone-only strain that is not claimed by one specific person or group. Blue Dream is considered “open sourced” and cuttings of it are easy to find. It is also a great strain to make concentrates from, producing a flavorful and aromatic product.

Lineage

Blue dream is a byproduct of two great strains – Blueberry and Haze. Blueberry, the 2000’s High Times Cannabis Cup’s winner of Best Indica, is known for its overall calming and euphoric effects. It has high levels of myrcene, caryophyllene, and pinene, making it a great option for patients who suffer from anxiety, pain, and insomnia. [5] Haze, a cerebral sativa with spicy yet citrusy scents, allows for uplifting effects that combats depression and fatigue while allowing for energy and a spark of creativity.

Blue Dream emerged in Northern California, but most of its history is a bit of a mystery. It is believed to have first appeared in Santa Cruz, a coastal city, and then it was eventually taken over by the veteran breeder DJ Short. In the early 70’s, DJ Short revamped the strain and dialed it in to the cultivar we are familiar with today.

Potency

Blue Dream’s THC Potency is typically around 18-23%.

Looks

The flower nugs are long, dense, and bushy. They have tones of bright greens and deep blues with amber pistils and lots of sugary white trichomes.

Smell

Blue Dream offers notes of berries and a candy-like sweetness that has a bit of spicy overtones. Mainly showcasing the smells of its parent strain Blueberry.

Flavor

This strain normally gets its best flavor when grown in soil. Much like its scent, Blue Dream has a deep fruity and floral flavor similar to grapes or lavender as well as warm, woody, and skunky undertones that make the exhale taste similar to a blueberry muffin.

Terpene Profile

Lab testing has shown that Blue Dream is high in myrcene, pinene, and caryophyllene.

Effects

Very few strains offer the classic upbeat, social, and anxiety-free experience that Blue Dream does. It is popular with both new and experienced users because of its flavor profile, but also due to the generous amount of euphoria produced. According to Leafly, this strain gives feelings of happiness and creativity while uplifting one’s mood. The effects typically last from 2-4 hours but will vary depending on the individual. It is a great morning and daytime strain and can be used to gain energy, improve focus, and spark creativity.

Medical Uses

Blue Dreams terpene profile and overall cannabinoid profile produces amazing relief for a variety of symptoms. The light full body relaxation combined with an uplifting cerebral stimulation gives users symptom relief without drowsiness or sedation. It is a gentle pain reliever and a muscle relaxant that helps patients who suffer from headaches, menstrual cramps, anxiety, and stress. This strain acts as a bronchodilator as well making it a great option for patients who suffer from asthma. Blue Dream is a great choice for those who are sensitive to high-energy producing sativas but are looking for a functional daytime strain that will not cause paranoia or anxiety.
