Blue Dream boasts two very highly-rated, classic cannabis strains as parents, namely Blueberry Ice and a very special U.S. Haze cut. This is a Californian cannabis strain that is 70% sativa and which produces high THC levels in less than 10 weeks of flowering. Growers can expect good to very good yields with an uplifting and long-lasting cerebral effect. Although not an especially difficult strain growers will undoubtedly benefit from some previous experience to realise its potential.
Blue Dream grows into a medium-sized plant when cultivated indoors but it is in outdoor gardens that this great strain really displays its full potential. Taking between 65 – 70 days to complete its flowering cycle indoors, Blue Dream can produce yields of approximately 500 gr/m2. Outdoors it is a plant that thrives in dry, Mediterranean climate regions such as that of its home in California where it reaches a height of 250 – 350 cm. Northern hemisphere harvests will be ready in the middle of October with very good yields between 700 – 850 gr/plant. Expect some large bud development.
The flavour of Blue Dream is softly citric (lemon) with notes of Haze and Madeira fortified wine. THC levels are high while CBD content is low at less than 1%. In terms of effect Blue Dream imparts a soft cerebral sensation with a great stimulating power. In all a very pleasant high from which it is difficult to return to reality such is its long-lasting power.
Blue Dream is particularly high in the monoterpene Alpha-Pinene which has many therapeutic and medicinal benefits including: as an anti-inflammatory, for bronchodilation, high MRSA resistance/antibacterial, it counters the short-term memory loss effects of THC, acts as an antidote to THC overdose effects, and is also anxiolytic.
