If one hears the word Hawaii, the first thing that comes to mind almost always involves turquoise beaches, white sands, tropical drinks, and whatnot. Well, the cannabis gods must have heard the prayers of every beach-loving stoner out there to grace the community with a strain like the Blue Hawaiian. It is probably just coincidence, but this strain greatly resembles the original Hawaiian cocktail Blue Hawaii.

There are no signs of blue hues in the plant though as Blue Hawaiian is more of a lime green and orange kind of weed. However, some phenotypes of this strain are said to have the bluish and purple streaks that are mostly passed on from it Blueberry parent. Nonetheless, the punch of the real drink and the high of this pot are pretty much on the same page.

Their similarities may be accidental, but to anyone who has had the actual drink before, this strain can most likely bring back some memories of Hawaii’s island vibe. In the meantime, here are some of the most important facts about the Blue Hawaiian strain that prospective users and growers should know about.

Blue Hawaiian is a cross between the award-winning Blueberry strain and the highly potent Hawaiian Sativa. The breeder responsible for this beauty is the Jordan of the Islands from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Judging by the parents of these strains, we can easily assume why it is named as such.

Regardless, Blue Hawaiian is known to produce a kind of high that creeps in slowly. In fact, it may take several minutes before it finally hits. However, once it does, users will notice a heightened mood with overwhelming happiness and sense of euphoria that feels uplifting and energizing.

Simultaneously, the high delivers a calming sensation that spreads throughout the users’ body, making them feel so relaxed. This somewhat synchronized physical and mental high may the tendency of producing psychedelic effects on the user that can include visual distortions.

Otherwise, the user is still able to maintain enough focus to get things done throughout the day which leads to the point that Blue Hawaiian is ideally used in the morning.


Blue Hawaiian has one of the most delightful aromas among cannabis varieties. Considering the traits of both its parents, it is no surprise that it offers this sweet and fruity blueberry scent that may have some earthy undertones with it. Some would describe the aroma as a unique Hawaiian island blueberry smell which certainly sounds very appropriate.


If it smells amazing, then there is a greater chance for it to taste just as good. This may not always be true to everything, but it certainly is to Blue Hawaiian. To be more specific, the strain offers a delightful combination of the sweet and fruity flavors of tropical fruits such as pineapples and berries with tad kick of spice and earthiness.

Adverse Reaction

Every seasoned user knows that adverse reactions are inevitable if one smokes weed. These side effects are greatly influenced by the overall strength of the strain and the users’ level of tolerance to the strain’s effects.

In the case of Blue Hawaiian, users should expect to experience signs of dry eyes and dry mouth. Surprisingly, there are only a few complaints of headaches and paranoia. At the same time, it is very rare for users to feel dizzy while smoking Blue Hawaiian.


Blue Hawaiian is not the best alternative for patients who benefit from higher CBD concentrations. However, the strain can be useful in relieving stress due to its uplifting euphoria. Simultaneously, this can also be a great escape for patients dealing with depression.

With its relaxing Indica effects, the strain can provide temporary relief to patients who are in constant pain and occasionally feeling nauseous due to certain illnesses.


Blue Hawaiian can be grown indoor or outdoor. Seeds are available, but growers can also obtain some clippings from a healthy plant to grow as a clone. Indoor cultivation needs close monitoring to maintain ideal temperatures, and the plants may need to be trimmed and pruned early in the growing process.

Outdoor cultivation, on the other hand, requires a Mediterranean climate with daytime temperatures within a 70° Fahrenheit range. Growers may need to artificially shock the plants by exposing them to cold temperatures before the flowering stage. This will stimulate the pigments of the plant to produce vibrant hues of purple and blue.

Flowering Time

The breeder has explicitly stated that Blue Hawaiian has quite a lengthy flowering time. To be exact, it may last for about 9 to 10 weeks. Regardless, the strain is very rewarding. With enough persistence, it may be able to produce an effective yield of 16 to 20 ounces per square meter.

Unfortunately, there is no available data as to the precise harvest month of Blue Hawaiian. Nonetheless, the outdoor yield is just as rewarding as 24 ounces or more per plant.
