Information about Blue Persuasion:
The Botany Unlimited Design and Supply or BUDS Pasco is a pioneer in Washington’s cannabis market. Besides their stunning recreational line, the company also gained its reputation for producing some of the ‘cleanest’ flowers in the market using their patented hydroponics system. In fact, each of their buds has incredibly low contaminant scores including Blue Persuasion.
But, its specialized medium is not the only aspect that gives it its novelty. In creating the strain, BUDS Pasco selected three legendary strains for their specific traits. From Blueberry, it earned its sweet berry flavor. Meanwhile, its ease of growth is an inheritance from the Northern Lights side of the family. White Widow, on the other hand, gave it its effects and large resin production.
There are a lot of expectations with regard to Blue Persuasion. After all, it is the flagship strain of BUDS Pasco’s Signature Series. Thankfully, it passed with flying colors. At 26%, the herb is not only potent, it is a powerhouse among its peers. Its effects are long-lasting, meditative, and relaxing – the ideal bud to toke for unwinding or capping the day with a positive note.

An incredibly potent Indica leaning strain, Blue Persuasion delivers a soothing buzz that uplifts the mind. Though subtle, its euphoric rush ushers in a sense of happiness. To some, it is a source of food for thought and deep introspection. Although, users will have to prepare some snacks ahead. The increased mental stimulation tends to get one hungry.
Gradually, the Indica effects of the strain begin to creep in. It starts with a tingling sensation from the back of the head and trickles down to the rest of the body. Intensifying with each toke is a heaviness that engulfs the limbs and leaves users feeling completely relaxed. Overindulging in the bud, however, can result in a couch lock. Instead of a pleasant psychedelic high, users are left completely immovable.
Regardless of whether one vapes or smokes Blue Persuasion, it is almost sure to cause the eyes and the mouth to dry. Some may also experience momentary dizziness and, quite possibly, a mild headache depending on individual tolerance. For this reason, it is best to consume the bud in moderation.
As a product of BUDS Pasco, Blue Persuasion is presumably used for recreation. However, this does not, in any way, diminish the value it gives to the medical community. Its high levels of THC, along with CBD and other cannabinoids, help ease symptoms of many common afflictions.
For one, its soothing but uplifting cerebral effects provide temporary relief to anxiety and depression along with other mental conditions like PTSD. By charging the brain with euphoria, it instills a powerful sense of happiness that quells stress and negativity.
The same compounds that stimulate the mind also do the same for the appetite. In users without eating disorders, the effects are instantaneous. But, in patients with anorexia or cachexia, the strain first soothes the sharp contractions in the gastrointestinal tract. Then, it loosens the muscles in the stomach so it may accept small increments of nourishment. This is vital, as deprived bodies often reject huge amounts of food. Similarly, such effects also work to relieve nausea.
Breeders at BUDS Pasco grow all their products indoors, using a specially-developed patented hydroponics system called HyGroCage. This is because the quality of soil significantly influences the total outcome of the strain. But, with a soilless growing medium, growers not only control nutrients but pH levels as well. Plants turn out healthier, bigger, and maybe even more potent.
Bred in the same manner, Blue Persuasion thrives. Of course, this is not to say the plant does not do well outdoors. An excellent Indica with great genetics, it has sturdy stalks with strong resistance to molds. While the strain does well in a slightly humid climate, it prefers a warmer one.
Growers may also want to have a good odor-control system. Because of its high THC levels, Blue Persuasion produces a very pungent scent that permeates throughout the air. Even having just one plant gathers attention. Although, the homely scent of freshly picked blueberries may make up for it.
Once mature, it buds produce a mint green color with light yellow undertones. Instead of amber or orange, its pistils are golden. Lastly, a testament to its potency, it is covered in a thick blanket of trichomes that look white even from afar.
Regardless of the set-up, each square meter of Blue Persuasion produces an average of up to 12 ounces of buds after flowering for about 7 to 9 weeks.
Around the first to third week of October, each plant of Blue Persuasion yields at least 10 ounces of buds.
