Blue Dream

Blue Dream

The Blue Dream Strain is sativa-strong hybrid that has become somewhat of a legend in its native California. It has earned its reputation for being the perfect day-time strain, in that it is the perfect “pick-me-up” without being overpowering, resting more on being “mood-altering” rather than a heavy physical high.

Truly representative of the “cool California vibe”, Blue Dream originated in the medical cannabis scene in sunny California. A Blueberry Indica crossed with the Super Silver Haze, Blue Dream was born for its role as what is now known as one of the most popular strains on the global market. Its Top Shelf qualities make it an easy favorite, while its reputation for being easy-going in its high has truly pushed Blue Dream to the top of the ranks.

Given its blueberry background, Blue Dream boasts of a fruity, lusciousness that is both enticing and appetizing. It resembles the scent of blueberry closely, but has a strong general fruity whiff to it. It has been described as vanilla-sweet, while traces of mango also have a strong presence.

Besides its obvious berry fragrance, it carries hints of spice, breaking up the overall fruitiness, and turning it into an aromatic treat on its own.


“What you smell is what you taste” could easily be said about Blue Dream. Its flavor lingers in the sweet berry variety, with undertones of herbal and spices. Its strong, fruity characteristics makes it easy to enjoy, and its slight sour notes offers up the perfect balance between flavors.

I enjoyed reading your article about the cannabis strain Blue Dream. I have never grown Blue Dream, however, I have had the opportunity and Liberty to use this strain. It works as advertised on my body, if this could be purchased over the counter the opiod and heroin overdoses in the USA would drop dramatically. But, then the prisons would be empty. Great read, thanks for posting.

I have seen it with my own eyes. Purchase of product as nice as Blue Dream. Over the counter. In Reno. Yikes! And Mr. De Carlo, what about the number of wives with black eyes! It will be going down in Reno. Now, today.

I bought some cheap seeds 2 years ago of Red Goo ( panama red x Afgooey?). Almost all hermied. I put one of the hermaphrodites with a Blue Dream that I grew from clone. I didn't get many seeds because my season is too short. The seeds that I tried germinated and grew quickly and became beautiful plants. Then all but one has hermied. So now I have only one plant of the Blue dream X Red goo. It only started to flower in the last couple of days so how long after the Blue Dream flowers does it usually take before harvest? It's an outside grow at higher elevation so we could get frosts toward the end of Sept.

cannadream if you ever read my post,

The best time to harvest is when you check the trichomes/resin with a microscope at 100x magnification to see if the trichomes/resin is milky white, if they are milky white then it is time to harvest, for me i would wait a bit to see some amber in the resin.
