The genetic backbone of Blueberry seeds is one of the strongest amongst the most popular strains in the world. It 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 in the 70s or early 80s. DJ was a popular but mysterious breeder whom many termed the “Willy Wonka” of pot. Blueberry is immediately identified by the fresh smell of blueberry it emits as the taste that can linger in your mouth. It has won multiple awards, with its most visible honor being the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup for best Indica and best strain overall.
Blueberry is funny in that it can have a broad range of THC content -as little as 15% and as much as 25%. The 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 marijuana plant are almost transparent-contrasting with the milky or amber colored ones in similarly resinous strains. But don’t underestimate this 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 strain in many ways. The sweet tart fragrance is reminiscent of the Purple Thai lineage. When blueberry cannabis is broken open, it gives off some 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.
Often known as a “one hit wonder”, Blueberry Cannabis users can find it almost too potent -even for experienced marijuana 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.
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 is an excellent tool for pain management -both for short-term trauma and long-term chronic conditions like nerve damage. It 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 can include sleepy unfocused eyes with the customary dry mouth and red eyes. As previously noted Blueberry requires very little consumption and is broadly regarded as one of the longest lasting effects.
Growing Blueberry Seeds
Growers can also buy Blueberry seeds online at Farmers Lab Seeds.
Like all Farmers Lab Seeds, blueberry can be grown indoors and outdoors -with outdoor climate conditions should be such that daytime temperatures do not get hotter than 80 degrees Fahrenheit. This strain is well suited for indoor cultivation as they are short and bushy-rarely higher than 4 feet. Blueberry also has a lot of bud/leaf ratio and if a grower wants it to emit the lavender and red accents, the plant needs to be “shocked” by sudden cold temperatures just before the flowering stage. Blueberry Weed flowers in 8 to 10 weeks when grown indoors and yields about 1.5 ounces of flower per square foot. Blue Dream and Blueberry Kush have crossbred popular hybrids from the Blueberry Strain.
