Animal Blues is an indica-dominant hybrid that was created by In-House Genetics by crossing Animal Cookies and Platinum Blueberry Kush. It produced a colorful and aromatic plant that provides a relaxing high through average THC levels of 17% to 23%.
Animal Blues’ flowers are medium to large size with a sativa-influenced structure. However, it is their color that is most distinctive, a mix of forest green with deep blues and purples. They are covered with curly orange pistils and translucent white trichomes, which make them truly eye catching.
After curing, Animal Blue flowers have a sweet, fruity aroma with hints of berry. When the flowers are broken up, they have a sourer, skunky smell, and when burnt, they give off a pungent, acrid smoke that is likely to tickle the palate and even cause watery eyes. When exhaled, the thick smoke tastes of fruit.
The high from Animal Blues begins slowly and takes about quarter of an hour to kick in fully. It often begins with a sense of pressure around the temples and this soon changes to an altered headspace sometimes complete with small visual and auditory hallucinations and changes to the perception of time. However, it is not a mentally stimulating strain and it will not help with focus or productivity. Rather, it is a deep body stone, making it best used in the evening.
Some say that it can help with stress, depression and anxiety. It may also help to alleviate pains and aches, and it has been known to help with insomnia. As it is a physical stone, it is well suited to those who suffer from anxiety or paranoia.
Grown indoors, Animal Blues is ready to harvest within 8 to 9 weeks and offers a relatively high yield of buds at maturity.
