The Blueberry strain is an Indica-hybrid that many believe is a three-way cross between three popular other strains: Afghani, Thai and Purple Thai.
It is believed that DJ Short developed Blueberry Strain in the 70s or early 80s. DJ Short was a popular but mysterious breeder whom many termed the “Willy Wonka” of pot. Blueberry weed has won multiple awards, with its most visible honor being the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup for best Indica and best overall strain and can have a broad range of THC content from 15%-25%.
Blueberry weed is characterized by small densely packed flowers-more reminiscent of an Indica-dominant strain. Purple and red can be speckled amongst the dark forest green leafs making it a beautiful plant. The trichomes of the Blueberry strain are almost transparent-contrasting with the milky or amber colored ones in similarly resinous strains. But don’t underestimate this marijuana strain as the buds can be incredibly sticky and a grinder is often used.
The blueberry smell, combined with the eye-catching myriad of colors makes it an attractive marijuana strain in many ways. The sweet tart fragrance is reminiscent of the Purple Thai lineage. When blueberry cannabis is broken open, it gives off other scents with a spicy or musky residue-reminiscent of Afghani strains. During combustion, the skunk smell becomes more evident. Interestingly, when smoking, a user will find it much milder than other Indica strains and the blueberry taste remains prominent on inhaling and exhale with the skunk smell no longer evident.
Blueberry Strain Effects:
Often known as a “one hit wonder”, Blueberry strain users can find it almost too potent -even for experienced smokers. The overall sensation is one of physical heaviness-which could lead to immobility and confusion when one is not in a safe home environment. Be sure to check out Blueberry Autoflower if you need the auto flowering version.
However, in a relaxed home setting, the high can provide a sense of therapeutic calm perfect for relaxing after a stressful workday. This strain does not increase mental alertness or acuity, but rather a sense of euphoric uplift and one could become chatty and giddy. If over-done, couch lock could be a result making it not an ideal strain for getting chores or work done.
Blueberry Strain Medicinal Use:
Blueberry weed is an excellent tool for pain management -both for short-term trauma and long-term chronic conditions like nerve damage. Blueberry weed is also excellent for reducing mental issues like stress, anxiety, PTSD and other overly active mind racing maladies. Finally, it is an excellent sleep aid for those suffering from chronic insomnia.
Some of the less desirable effects of blueberry strain can include red eyes or sleepy unfocused eyes with the customary dry mouth . As previously noted Blueberry weed requires very little consumption and is broadly regarded as one of the longest lasting effects, similar to the Gorilla Glue Strain.
Growing the Blueberry Strain:
Like all Farmers Lab Seeds, Blueberry strain can be grown indoors and outdoors. If growing in outdoor climate, conditions should be such that daytime temperatures do not get hotter than 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Blueberry strain is well suited for indoor cultivation as the plants are short and bushy-rarely higher than 4 feet. Blueberry strain also has a great bud-to-leaf ratio. If a grower wants it to bring out the lavender and red accents in the leaves, the plant needs to be “shocked” by sudden cold temperatures just before the flowering stage. Blueberry Weed seeds will flower in 8 to 10 weeks when grown indoors and yields about 1.5 ounces of flower per square foot. Blue Dream strain and Blueberry Kush strain have crossbred popular hybrids from the Blueberry Strain.
