Easily, one of the most in-demand cannabis strains over the last few years has been Blue Dream, a cultivar that many people consider the very best sativa-dominant hybrid of all time. If you’re looking for a strain that gives you the best qualities of both indicas and sativas, this one should be at the top of your list. It doesn’t hurt that it also delivers a dreamy blueberry flavor, as the name implies.
Let’s look at this strain more closely as you’re going to want to grab it if you haven’t yet.
Overview: What is Blue Dream?
Blue Dream is 60% sativa/40% indica hybrid that comes from crossing together Blueberry and Haze. Its THC levels vary between 17%-24%, although on the current market you’re far more likely to find the higher end of the spectrum since the most potent form of the strain is what’s most in demand these days. That means that this strain packs some major power, and you should go lightly if you’re a relative beginner.
Blue Dream’s buds look like fluffy pieces of popcorn in terms of shape, and they’re large and dense. There’s a bright green hue with blue undertones, amber hairs and a coating of creamy white resin that makes them sticky to the touch.
What Does Blue Dream Taste and Smell Like?
