Blue Dream originated in Northern California, where DJ Short’s Blueberry was crossed with a Haze (possibly Silver Haze) plant from the Santa Cruz area. The resulting strain is a sativa dominant hybrid that retains most of its Haze characteristics with the addition of the Blueberry genetics to add to the flavor and color of the buds.
The Blue Dream plant would normally look bluish when mature. The colors would range from a light blue to dark purple or dark midnight blue.
Blue Dream is a dense, popcorn-like bud with purple and blue hues and light orange hairs. It has a very spicy aroma and taste, some would say slightly tropical, making it an extremely palatable choice. The aroma it produces is quite unique. It carries the intensity of sweet Blueberry while having an earthy fresh pine scent and having a hint of a musky skunk smell as well.
It is one of the favorites in California and in fact it is among the top ten most demanded strains in there, which gives a good measure about the quality of this jewel. Taste is described by users as sweet, tangy, lemony, and earthy. Produces big plants that grow fast and wide, and it is appropriate for commercial purposes.
When you smoke Blue Dream, you will first feel its Sativa-like effects: you will become very focused and calm; after a few more hits, you will feel the Indica effects and within an hour… you’ll be relaxed.
Growing this strain requires some patience: it can be a slow grower in the early stages taking some time to branch out in its entirety. It requires close attention to humidity to avoid mold and mildew. It is also a favorite of mites and pests so try to avoid exposure if you can! Once the plant reaches maturity, however, it is fairly easy to maintain. It is great to unwind after a long day and because it is not an overwhelming strain, it’s a good choice if you need to function normally during the day. It is also great for use in food-based preparations.
