Name: Blue Dream
Variety: Hybrid
Lineage: Blueberry x Haze

Blue Dream (sometimes Blue-Dream or Blue Dreams)[1][2] is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis. Originally from the U.S. state of California, it is a cross of the indica Blueberry and the sativa Haze (sometimes specifically Super Silver Haze).

Description

Blue Dream is a cross between the indica Blueberry and the sativa Haze (sometimes Super Silver Haze).[3][4] Some phenotypes have an indica appearance, but most varieties lean toward the sativa end of the spectrum.[3] Buds feature long, thick hairs and produce a "rich, with a subtle sugar-cookie funk" scent.[4] Some varieties are frosty and covered in numerous trichomes, making them lighter in color. Vapor from the strain is smooth and creates a "sweet blueberry sugar" taste on the exhale.[4]

Effects

Blue Dream

According to Leafly, Blue Dream "balances full-body relaxation with gentle cerebral invigoration" and its effects "ease you gently into a calm euphoria". Leafly also says the following of the strain: "With a sweet berry aroma redolent of its Blueberry parent, Blue Dream delivers swift symptom relief without heavy sedative effects. This makes Blue Dream a popular daytime medicine for patients treating pain, depression, nausea, and other ailments requiring a high THC strain."[3]

In his review for Medical Jane, Matthew Price wrote, "Being a 50/50 hybrid, you get the best of both worlds with this strain of cannabis. The effects are instant & plentiful, making it an instant favorite among most MMJ patients." Price also noted that varieties can vary, so the effects are not always "happy" and energy-inducing, and observed: "Generally speaking, the Blue Dream strain is popular for removing all types of stress and anxiety. Its calming mind-warp is a staple for the strain that is prominent in even the strongest Indica-dominant batches of Blue Dream I have come across."[4]

Reception

Blue Dream has achieved "legendary status" among West Coast strains.[3] It was included at number one in "Leafly's Top 10 Cannabis Strains of 2014".[5]

Price of Medical Jane completed his review by saying: "It’s one of my go-to strains for a relaxing, thought-provoking, and stress-free experience. This hybrid strain seems to make the day’s endless list of things to do seem much more attainable. The effects generated from Blue Dream are typically long lasting, euphoric, and can be full-bodied depending on the cut of Blue Dream you have. Considered a personal favorite of most patients I speak to, Blue Dream is definitely a medical marijuana strain that is sure to grow in popularity for years to come."[4]
