In 2014, the Medicinal Marijuana Association included Blue Mystic in its list of "5 Medical Cannabis Strains That Are Good for Starters", saying: "With a hint of grape taste and a mixed smell that is slightly sweet and sour, Big Bud is an indica dominant hybrid with mild effects. It is used by medical marijuana patients who shop at the Denver dispensary Patient's Choice of Colorado. The bud is light green with visibly fine orange colored hairs. The high lasts up to two hours, enhancing sense of touch, but doesn't produce a strong cerebral effect. Patients have called its medicinal effects well rounded, alleviating stomach pains and works as a good sedative before sleep."
