Blue Dream, sometimes known as Azure Haze, is a potent blend of the always-popular Blueberry and Haze strains. The strain is slightly sativa dominant and is known for its excellent flavour and the cerebral high it provides. The history of Blue Dream is not well known or documented, which has led some to say that it came from a dream. It rose to prominence in the medical community and there is a great deal of speculation that it originated in Santa Cruz, CA. In time, it came to the attention of the well-known breeder DJ Short and he worked hard to develop it into the version that is known today.
Blue Dream has a relatively high THC range with an average low of 17% and a high of 24%. However, beyond the flavour and strength, it offers far more. It has a CBD strength of 2% and a CBN strength of 1%, which makes it an ideal strain for treating a wide range of problems. After smoking, the flavours of blueberry and sugar remain on the tongue for a long time, while the actual buds are long and busy, with deep blue hues, amber and blue hairs, giving it its name, as well as many milky white trichomes.
The high from Blue Dream offers all the best parts of its parentage neatly wrapped in a flavourful and balanced package. At first users enjoy a cerebral rush, complete with heightened motivation and focus, so it can be enjoyed while busy. As the high grows, you will eventually become extremely relaxed, leaving you feeling hazy and completely calm. Thanks to this numbing, users will be free of pain and ready to take on any tasks.
However, those who suffer from anxiety disorders are not recommended to use Blue Dream as it can overtake you quite quickly and this could exacerbate pre-existing conditions. On the other hand, thanks to its potency, it has many beneficial effects for those suffering from chronic fatigue, depression, and lack of appetitive. It is a stimulant at heart and is sure to lift your mood and get you moving. It has also been beneficial for those suffering with mild cases of muscle spasms and pains caused by injury and illness.
Whether you are an old hand at smoking or a complete newcomer, Blue Dream is sure to delight. When grown indoors it has a flowering time of around 10 weeks, and in outdoor setups it tends to flower in late September and early October. It is a high yield strain with about 21 ounces from each plant. Just be aware that if you are growing indoors you will need to top early, as they can grow taller than five feet!
While the strain’s name may sound like a dream, don’t think that it will leave you stuck on the couch. It brings the best bits of its lineage and combines them into something special. If you are looking for motivation, want to forget about your worries, or need a mood boost, then Blue Dream is the strain to try.
