Blue Dream

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”, this strain 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.

Blue Dream’s top Shelf qualities make it an easy favorite, while its reputation for being easy-going in its high has truly pushed this strain to the top of the ranks.

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.

Blue Dream terpenes

The most abundant terpene in this indulgent strain is myrcene which gives it its earthy scent. The secondary terpenes that make up its rich aromatic profile consist of geraniol, β-Pinene, carene, caryophyllene, linalool, and ocimene.

Aroma & Flavor

Given its blueberry background, this strain 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.

“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 herbs and spices.

Its strong, fruity characteristics make it easy to enjoy, and its slight sour notes offer up the perfect balance between flavors.

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

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.

Myrceneearthy, musky, fruity, clover, hop, pungent

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 aftereffect of smoking or consuming a large quantity.

Other minor complaints have been about the presence of a mild headache from the use of this strain, as well as an urge to cough due to throat dryness.

  1. I wanna thank you for all the info I had a lot of questions and I got everything I need to know. Very happy and I can now have a peace of mind.

  2. yes I grow my own in a deep water culture under LEDs in a 4 by 4 by 8 tent grow three at one time but they seem to be too much in the bedroom so now I’m only doing one at a time and an 18 gallon tub and I seem to be doing okay at least the big boss if you know what I mean says keep growing

  3. Gene, Yes it odes. Of course this all depends on everything being balanced and a good healthy plant 🙂

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

  5. Just in week 4 of seedling blue dream, indoor grow with just 3 plants…I’m on an 18-6 light do I know when to go to 12-12 schedule in lughts..will try to attach pic .help me!!

  6. My first grow was blue dream high quality flower excellent flavor, medical use cured nausea and dizziness within 20 min of first toke. I would recommend for medical use, it’s not heavy in thc but gets you buzzing.

  7. 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.

  8. hi, my blue dream plant is starting its 11. weeks in flowering stage and its hairs still mostly white and did’nt curved. Is this possible? Should i wait more or should i harvest?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
