Amsterdam genetics tested their strain and had the next results:
The high will hit you quickly, amplifying your senses in a way which makes you take note of certain sounds and sights, so visual distortions may occur at times which can induce a somewhat trippy feel. However once adjusted to this, the effects will allow for a productive surge to ensue which can result in you tackling tasks which you might not have attempted otherwise, such as tidying your room to filling out job applications. As the high wears on, you will notice that the effects start to mellow down, allowing for a long state of relaxation where both body and mind are at ease.
Blue Magic has an array of medicinal uses. For example, the high level of attentiveness that it induces can be a great boost for those suffering from attention deficit disorder. Furthermore, the calming effects of the strain have been reported to have helped with those suffering with mild to moderate depression and stress, whilst also acting as a hunger stimulant for those with eating disorders. The strain also possesses anti-inflammatory qualities which can help tackle nausea and headaches.
Like many other strains, Blue Magic may not be for everyone. Owing to its reported high THC levels and active cerebral effects, Blue Magic is not advisable for those who tend to panic easily or who have a low tolerance for THC.
