What Does Blue Dream mean?
Blue Dream is a sativa-dominant cannabis hybrid strain with a sweet berry aroma. This classic California cultivar crosses Blueberry indica with the sativa Haze, and among West Coast strains it has achieved legendary status for high THC levels and amazing effects.
Blue Dream offers a happy, gentle mental invigoration with a tingly yet mild body high and fast symptom relief. This very relaxing, yet not sedating, and allows the user to sink into the level effects of Blue Dream, and a calm euphoria that’s enough to satisfy both new and veteran users. The end result is that Blue Dream is a wildly popular medicine for daytime use, especially for patients with chronic pain, nausea, depression, and other problems that benefit from a high THC strain.
Technically there are two Blue Dream phenotypes, but the indica dominant version is less favored on the market.
Blue Dream Usage and Meaning
The well-balanced yet sativa-leaning Blue Dream hybrid will always be a favorite in its home of California—the Santa Cruz region, specifically. This is particularly because Blue Dream has a reputation for being an ideal mellow, happy, energetic “California” kind of strain.
This is not that baked body buzz you get from a kush, for example. It is restful yet energizing, and gives a “pick-me-up” without the jitters, for a boost to the day.
“Blue Dream” itself is sometimes used as shorthand for this kind of California strain or experience.
Blue Dream Cannabis Strain Origins
Named for the sweet, fruity fragrance of blueberries that it will remind you of, Blue Dream’s effects include feeling energized, euphoric, motivated, and relaxed. The plants itself typically have dense green nugs with bright orange pistils. As mentioned, Blue Dream smells of blueberries with spicy undertones, and the flavor is similarly sweet, fruit, and spicy—just what you’d expect from a Blueberry Haze cross.
The other part of the name might be attributed to the dreamy, hazy effects you get from Blue Dream, because this sativa-dominant strain will certainly produce a euphoric mind melt, a boost in creativity, and a drop in stress.
Why is Blue Dream so Popular?
There are probably several reasons that Blue Dream is so popular, and each contribute to its larger meaning in the context of cannabis culture:
It’s easy to grow. Cannabis can be hard to grow, even if you are a decent grower, but Blue Dream is pretty easy for a sativa-dominant strain and can be grown indoors or outdoors. It’s also a large, quick yielder with a rapid flowering time, and fairly mold-resistant.
It’s terpy. Terpenes are important for their health benefits and they offer taste and smell in cannabis. Blue Dream offers myrcene, pinene, carophyllene, and terpinolene. These work together with THC, CBD, and other minor cannabinoids such as CBN to treat a range of issues, including pain, anxiety, fatigue, and headaches.
Few side effects. This well-balanced sativa dominant hybrid produces few negative side effects such as dry eyes or dry mouth.
Medically effective. Blue Dream relieves menstrual cramps and other types of chronic and acute pain, anxiety, arthritis, depression, fibromyalgia, migraines, and PTSD.
It’s available. Blue Dream is very easy to find in most places.
It tastes good. Yes, not everyone can handle things that taste like chemicals or gasoline. For many, sweet blueberry is the way to go, especially when it brings high THC content with it. Even better in a vape.
It’s enough, but not too much. That’s why it’s so good for a daytime toke.
It’s popular. Yes—and that means it gets used more, it’s kind of a cycle.
