Blue Dream Strain Uses
The Blue Dream strain first appeared in the medical marijuana community, but just like the rest of its history, it’s unclear who or why because its history is part of its allure. The combination of the high THC and welcoming flavor make this an easy choice for those seeking relief from
- Chronic pain
- Mild depression
- Muscle Spasms
While this strain does help with mood disorders, it’s often not recommended for those who struggle with anxiety disorders. This is a fast acting strain and therefore can be somewhat overwhelming for those with active anxiety issues, especially because of the cognitive enhancement combined with the fast acting relaxation.
On the other hand, for the very same reasons, it can be a popular choice for those who suffer from chronic fatigue, depression, or even a lack of appetite, because it does lift the mood in addition to the full bodied relaxation.
Blue Dream Effect
Blue Dream is fast acting and you get a near immediate sense of relaxation while at the same time a quick head high that is invigorating and energizing. This is why it is a top choice for those seeking motivation and creative energy help. The body high comes just after that makes you feel warm and pain free. The effects include:
- Happy, euphoric
While Blue Dream isn’t a hugely sedating strain, it should be taken when you can accommodate the mild sedation and complete relaxation.
Growing the Blue Dream Strain
This is an easy strain to grow and delivers a solid yield. It’s easiest to grow indoors, but they can get pretty tall, around 5 feet tall!
