The Blue Dream family of cannabis is synonymous with a high grade Californian hybrid cannabis. The original Blue Dream is a fast hitting, well balanced hybrid which leaves little to be desired, as her potent effect makes her one of the most popular cannabis strains in dispensaries across North America.
The Blue Dream that we all know and love, was created by legendary strain breeder DJ Short at some point in the mid-2000s. Her unknown genetic lineage adds an air of mystery around her, with some suggesting that she was birthed in Santa Cruz as a cross between Blackberry and Haze.
Regardless of the details, Blue Dream is one of the most popular cannabis strains in the world and that isn’t without reason – her powerful genetics allow her to bring in as much as 500 g/m2 of cannabis flowers with a thick layer of resin, bright orange hairs, and specks of blue and purple in as few as 10 weeks of flowering. Her effect varies significantly by phenotype – one plant could have a high that is more characteristic of Indica-dominant strains while another could be more Sativa-leaning. As a result of her powerful genetic lineage, Blue Dream grows vigorously during the vegetative phase and her growth slows after the first few weeks of flower. If there is limited vertical space, Blue Dream’s height can be managed using a range of high-stress training techniques such as topping and supercropping.
Sweet, Berry-like Terpene Profile
Her terpene profile is one of the most exquisite among cannabis strains. Her high caryophyllene content makes her highly coveted among those who make cannabis extracts and/or terpene distillates which have excellent medical applications for those suffering with anxiety or chronic headaches.
