Strain review: Blue Dream

by DGO Pufnstuf

If “chill” were a weed strain, it would be Blue Dream.

Some of you may already know that, because chances are, you’re familiar with this strain. It is, after all, one of the most beloved strains out there. But, just in case you aren’t in the know, let’s have an impromptu science lesson to get you up to speed.

Here’s the gist of it: Blue dream is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain from California, and it was created by crossing the indica strain known as Blueberry with the sativa strain Haze. This Blueberry/Haze offspring has over the years made a real name for itself, thanks to its unique, uplifting effects, and these days, it sits on the GOAT throne among the West Coast marijuana legends for a number of reasons, not the least of which is related to the hypnotic happiness it brings to those who tango with it.

But, as legendary as this strain is, we hadn’t had the opportunity to review this little blue beaut until earlier this week. when our friends at Prohibition asked us to take a stab at it. Needless to say, we were stoked to oblige.

I picked up a gram of Blue Dream on a weekend afternoon, and before I’d even gotten back to the car, I’d popped the lid off to take a gander. The first thing that I noticed was how dreamy, ethereal, and BLUE this bud looked. There is no mistaking this bud’s lineage. The weed I had was also layered with thick trichomes, making the blue tones of the bud look frosty and eerily cold. It was so freaking cool, you guys.

And, when I stuck my nose into the canister, all I could smell was berry through and through. This strain is nothing if not full of blueberry goodness. I can’t tell you what else this strain smells like, because to me, it smells like something that should be on Wonka’s wall. The Blue Dream tastes like snozberries!

Considering how anxious I was just to get a peek, you will not be surprised to learn that I lit up a bowl with a friend shortly after I got home to test things out. (Yes, I have no chill – especially when I get my hands on a strain like this.) As expected, that berry smell was evident in the flavor of the strain, too. It tasted a bit like a burning berry candy. I can dig it.

As with its cousin, Sueno, which we reviewed last week, the effects of Blue Dream were felt almost instantaneously. I was high before I’d even walked inside, and my friend, who’s a major lightweight, was zoned out, smiling, and intermittently chatty shortly after. She was also pretty high.

Here’s the thing about the effects of Blue Dream, though. While we were stoned, it wasn’t a sativa high like one would expect from, well, a sativa. While Blue Dream is considered a sativa hybrid, most of its phenotypes hand off effects that mirror an indica, but without the freaking slammed-against-the-wall exhaustion or couch lock. It’s the perfect mix of sativa and indica for someone who, like me, greatly dislikes being high to the point of non-functional. I like to feel high, but I want it to be moderate.

And that’s precisely what Blue Dream is. This strain will help you feel the chill-out-but-still-function vibe. After smoking, my brain felt high, I had a slight tingle from a body high, and the low-key headache I was rocking from a weak attempt to day drink earlier that afternoon was wiped out, but I was renewed, not knocked into next year.

I guess the best way to put it is that the effects of Blue Dream, like its look and smell, were chill and pleasant. I was happy, I was functional, and I was riding that wave of good feels for the rest of the afternoon. This strain definitely lives up to its name.
