This strain originated in Santa Cruz, California decades ago. When Blue Dream first hit dispensary shelves in the state everyone was impressed with the nature of this sativa-dominant hybrid. Blue Dream flowers always grow in a light green, completely frosted bud that is shaped almost exactly like a miniature but bulbous pine tree. Another distinct attribute of Blue Dream is the fire orange pistils that can be found sprinkled throughout each flower. It is hard to miss it when looking at a strain that has been back crossed with Blue Dream, the buds will almost always look just like we’ve described.
Blue Dream is a sativa dominant hybrid but the sativa level can vary depending on where the seeds or clones came from and the environment where the plant was grown. These flowers are a cross between beloved sativa strain Haze and the fabulous pain relieving indica strain Blueberry. This cross creates a divine combination with plants growing around 5’ high. Blue Dream is actually not too difficult to grow. Expect a somewhat short flowering time of approximately 60 to 70 days. Each plant will harvest around 600 grams when grown outdoors, but this strain prefers indoor grows. The yield will probably be around 430 grams per square meter for an indoor grow operation.
The Medicinal benefits of Blue Dream can be somewhat endless. This is because the lineage combines the most legendary of sativas with a hugely pain relieving indica. The result is a cannabis flower that can help with anxiety, stress, depression, chronic pain and nerve conditions, and more. Just don’t attempt to use strain this for sleep.
Though this is a valuable cannabis strain, not everyone will love it. Anyone dealing with an intense anxiety disorder might find that the Haze lineage irritates our anxious tendencies. Similarly, this is not a good strain before bed because of the uplifting qualities it can have.
