Blue Dream is one of the best-selling strains on the market. Chances are, if you only know the name of one cannabis strain, it’s this one. This strain is a 50/50 hybrid cross between DJ Short’s Blueberry and Haze. Blueberry is an indica famous for its sweet aroma and strong berry taste. Haze is a classic sativa with potent cerebral effects.

This balanced flower is not the most potent strain on the shelf, but Blue Dream is a serious contender. On average, the THC  ranges between 17 and 24%.

Less-potent buds make great choices for novice cannabis consumers. Those with some experience will find it to be a mild-mannered herb overall.

The aroma of Blue Dream is unique. The flower has inherited plenty of the sweetness from Blueberry, but has a musky and slightly pungent scent from Haze.

Some describe the scent as like a slightly herbal sugar cookie. More of the berry lineage comes through on the taste.

Blue Dream is the ultimate hybrid. It is an even split between indica and sativa cannabis varieties. If you don’t already know, indicas provide physical, body-heavy, slow-moving effects that may leave you stuck to the couch. Sativa strains are the opposite. They provide what feels like a psychoactive, cerebral, heady experience with ample mental energy.

The experience is right in the middle of these two varieties. It combines the intense physical relaxation from Blueberry with the mood uplift and mentally energy of Haze. While both parent strains can be a little overwhelming, Blue Dream creates a happy medium between the two.

No need to choose between either side of the fence, Blue Dream sits right in the center. The overall experience is happy and upbeat with a calm yet meaningful sense of physical ease.

This strain is happy and sociable without being racy. It is deeply relaxing without being too drowsy.

The solid, hybrid effects of Blue Dream make this the perfect strain for almost any situation. If you’re hoping for a good strain to share with friends, Blue Dream is the Pinot Grigio of the cannabis world. It has a little something for everyone, and it is one of the most widely appreciated strains around.

Sociable and jolly, this is the perfect strain for an afternoon with friends. But, if you’re feeling like a homebody, it can help you wind down, relax, and perhaps even pick away at a few chores. However, different phenotypes of this strain may be more sedative or energizing than others.

Medical consumers love this strain for many reasons. The focused and creative mental clarity it provides can be helpful for conditions like ADD/ADHD, chronic fatigue, and depression.

Neuropathic pain and other pain conditions like fibromyalgia, migraine, and inflammatory arthritis tend to respond well to Blue Dream.

Even patients with severe physical conditions like multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy report positive results. The balanced hybrid effects of Blue Dream make it valuable for anyone who needs daytime relief from pain or needs a major shift in mood.
