You can’t go wrong with a classic, and Blueberry has been a wildly popular indica-dominant hybrid for decades! This strain has unique origins, dating back to the 1970s when it was developed by the “Willy Wonka of Pot,” DJ Short. It’s the lovechild of three mysterious yet exotic landrace strains. While they remain unknown, most theorize that Blueberry is descended from Afghan, Thai and Purple Thai strains. Still, it quickly made a name for itself in its own right! Blueberry has won countless awards with a distinct flavour and enticing effects that are a must-try for all tokers!
Appearance, Flavour, and Effects
Descending from three legendary landrace strains, when it comes to Blueberry, you know you’re in the presence of greatness. The flowers of this indica hybrid are small and densely-packed – typical of a classic indica. The leaves are a beautiful forest green, often coupled with flecks of purple and red. Blueberry leaves are coated with nearly transparent trichomes. However, the buds are still sticky and may be hard to break apart by hand without using a weed grinder.
As you might anticipate, Blueberry’s fragrance is as delicious as it sounds! In fact, its aroma is so distinct that users will likely be able to tell exactly what strain it is just by its smell. When cured properly, Blueberry gives off a fresh and fragrant scent of, you guessed it, fresh blueberries. Who can say no to that! Its sweet and tart smell is indicative of its supposed parent strain, Purple Thai. Breaking or grinding Blueberry buds releases more complex scents of spice and musk, similar to Afghani varieties.
Luckily for everyone, Blueberry tastes as good as it smells! The sticky buds of this hybrid guarantee a fantastic fusion of flavours that will stick to your tongue. When combusted, Blueberry also has some skunky features. The smoke is surprisingly smooth for an indica. It has a sweet blueberry taste on the inhale and exhale. But be warned, many users view Blueberry as a one-hit and quit strain due to its powerful potency. This strain can reach THC levels of up to 24%, so be sure to start low and go slow! This strain is strong, even for the most seasoned weed lovers.
Blueberry is a known stress-crusher. Many tokers celebrate this strain as an effective relaxant. In this way, it’s best left to night-time use after a long day of work when you want to come home and unwind. Relaxation never felt so good! The high from this hybrid comes on fast with a sense of physical heaviness and sedation. The sativa genetics of Blueberry produce slight mental effects in the form of an uplifted euphoria. It may induce additional chattiness and a playful case of the giggles! When taken in high doses, this strain will have you feeling weighed down and couch-locked. Blueberry will have you building a cozy nest to get all sorts of comfy!
Medically speaking, this strain has near narcotic qualities. With its potent physical effects, it is commonly used to treat both short and long-term pain as well as chronic pain and pain from nerve damage. Blueberry can also help relieve some of the concerning symptoms of stress, anxiety and PTSD. Its soothing physical relaxation is strong enough to help ease and slow down overactive minds.
