Information about Blue Treat:
Blue Treat truly lives up to its name. It is a sweet strain that, at the first whiff and toke, reminds just about anybody of blueberry dessert. The true treat, however, is its 15% to 22% THC that induces a buildable high enjoyed by both novices and thrill chasers.
It was not difficult to create the fruit-flavored course. Canadian breeders Jordan of the Islands only need to choose a delicious berry strain and what better choice is there than the quintessential Blueberry? Dominating the industry since the 70s, it has stayed on top of its game with its tranquilizing body high, colorful hues, and great performance in the grow room. Further enhancing it is Dutch Treat, a divine-tasting bud with stress reducing properties.
Though it leans toward Indica, Blue Treat is greatly influenced by Dutch Treat’s impressive euphoric high. As such, users may use it as a brainstorming companion or as a reprieve against mental health issues such as anxiety.

Blue Treat is perfect for those that wish to relax both the mind and the body. But, before its physical effects begin, it first uplifts spirits with a calming cerebral buzz that eases the mind into a state of happiness.
It is not uncommon for one to feel mentally engaged in new concepts. After all, with the dissipation of negativity is a smoother flow of thoughts that form into bright, innovative ideas. Attributing to the surge of energy, too, is the upbeat disposition which puts many in the mood to brainstorm.
After an hour or two has passed, a tingling sensation introduces itself. Originating from the temples, it slowly works its way down until it engulfs the whole body in a blanket of relaxation. In all likelihood, those who overindulge will end up locked to the couch.
Anyone who likes sweet smelling strains is almost sure to like Blue Treat. At just the first whiff, it entices the nasal senses with its aroma of mixed berries dominated by blueberries. Enhancing it are pleasant subtle undertones of vanilla and earth that intensify once the buds are crushed then combusted.
The taste of sweet vanilla is among the first flavors users notice upon drawing Blue Treat in. Although, it quickly disappears as strong overtones of blueberries. On the exhale, the berries are complemented by an earthy aftertaste that make it seem like biting into a freshly-picked fruit.
Like other strains, Blue Treat has cannabinoids that stop the tear ducts from producing moisture. As such, it is not uncommon for one’s eyes to feel a little dry, red, and itchy. At times, the effects may extend to the mouth. Regardless, both are minor and barely a cause for concern. Still, those who experience discomfort may stay hydrated throughout the day by downing a few glasses of water.
Blue Treat is not only a treat to recreational enthusiasts, but also to medical users of marijuana. It has immense therapeutic value thanks to the combined effects of its cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and terpenes. Working with synergy, the compounds ease many mental and physical afflictions.
Depression is a life-threatening condition that affects a lot of people. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, it is one of the leading disabilities worldwide. While there are a variety of reasons, one thing is sure – it is an issue that must be dealt with immediately by appeasing its symptoms.
To this end, Blue Treat works perfectly. It induces a happy high that temporarily keeps hopelessness and overwhelming feelings of anxiety at bay. At the same time, it reduces stress and inhibits the production of cortisol which is a chemical related to depression. But, for long-term management, it is recommended that users visit a mental health professional.
Apart from delivering a mood-enhancing high, the same psychoactive compound is also responsible for Blue Treat’s analgesic properties. In high levels, it appeases a wide variety of aches and pains beginning from the temples. Eased into total relaxation, the natural sleep-aid also improves the quality and quantity of rest.
Blue Treat is not a large plant. Its Indica genes have made it short and stout but absolutely sturdy. Its buds grab the attention of many too. Once mature, it produces beautiful, dark green nugs with long brown hairs that are heavy with density. Placed in one’s hand, it leaves a sticky film of trichomes and resin that allude to its potency.
It is tricky to propagate Blue Treat without prior growing experience. The strain is sensitive to humidity due to its compact structure. Without proper ventilation, it can harbor moisture that attracts mold and mildew. For this reason, it also needs pruned constantly. Cutting away dead parts will not only help aerate the plant, it also improves air or light circulation.
At the moment, it is only available in regular form. As such, growing enthusiasts may have to add a few steps such as presoaking to encourage more calyx-filled herbs. Applying Low-Stress Training during the flowering stage will also keep females from turning into hermaphrodites. An alternative method is to cultivate the strain through a clipping.
Blue Treat usually flowers indoors in 8 weeks but can take as long as 9. At harvest, growers are rewarded with 10 to 12 ounces of buds per square meter. Applying the Sea of Green method, however, will increase yields as well as shorten the flowering time by at least a week.
In the northern hemisphere, Blue Treat blossoms from early to mid-October with each plant yielding a minimum of 12 ounces of buds.
