The Blue Dream Strain is a 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.

The famously chill Blue Dream is popular for the full-body relaxation it provides.

Its feel-good properties maximize the happy vibes, also encouraging a general feeling of motivation and a drive to become creative. It is the ideal companion for brainstorming activities, especially in a team setting, as it can help spark new and wild ideas and suggestions. This makes it ideal for anyone working in the creative field in need of a little inspiration.


The fact that it relaxes without turning someone into a couch-potato, is what makes it such an easy choice: Blue Dream truly defines a dreamlike floaty state, while allowing social interaction and the energy to physically accomplish tasks. Its ability to create a subtle mood-altering high, gives a warm fuzzy feeling that is hard to resist.


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, Blue Dream 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.

Altogether, it is known for these reasons to be a gentle choice – its taste isn’t overwhelming, and has helped Blue Dream become one of the most popular strains available today.

Adverse reactions

One of the few adverse effects of the Blue Dream strain, is that it can cause blurred vision, which can be attributed to a momentary feeling of mild dehydration, which can cause your eyes to feel a bit dry.

It can also induce a feeling of tiredness, and in rare cases cause slight anxiety and paranoia, largely an after effect of smoking or consuming a large quantity. Other minor complaints have been about the presence of a mild headache from the use of Blue Dream, as well as an urge to cough due to throat dryness.


With what conditions does it work?
The Blue Dream strain, with all its ability to cause a gentle, mellow high, has become a go-to for those seeking it out for medicinal purposes. This is a no-brainer since it was rumored to have been created in a medical Marijuana lab in the Santa Cruz area.

    Kimbrella, you can induce flowering anytime after 2 solid weeks of veg, although a minimum of 1-2 months of veg cycle is recommended. :)
