Blueberry is an 80% indica dominant hybrid strain of cannabis that, according to Leafly, has a pleasant and long-lasting high when consumed. This strain has a sweet fruity smell and tastes like blueberries and is known for its exquisite colours. Dutch Passion's version of Blueberry, which was derived from the original Delta 9 Collection, won first place in the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup in the mostly indica category.
Originating on the West Coast of the United States sometime during the 1970’s, where a breeder named DJ Short was working on a multitude of exotic land race sativas from places like Colombia, Panama, Mexico and Thailand. His extensive research led him to the discovery of two very special sativas. According to Short himself, the first plant was a highly potent all-around champion, "Juicy Fruit" Highland Thai female and the second plant was a Purple Thai out of Oregon, Ohio. The Purple Thai became DJ Short’s personal favorite as it was, according to him, emotionally kinder than the Juicy Fruit Thai, which was so strong that it could in large doses evoke terror in the smoker. The male that DJ Short used was an Afghani indica that was brought to his attention in 1979 by some growers from California, and although the indica plant was something of a novelty at a time when sativas ruled the grow rooms, the variety eventually caught on. Short supplied Dutch Passion with seeds who went on to win first place with the strain in the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup in the mostly indica category.
