BLUEBERRY – One of the longest-standing go-to cannabis strains, Blueberry is a favourite for its distinct look, fruity taste and smell, and potent effect. Blueberry is considered a landrace strain from Vancouver Island. It is high in THC and also naturally high in CBD, making it an excellent choice for medical users. Treat stress, aches and pains, as well as insomnia with this strong Indica-dominant variety. Use in the evening as it is known to induce a drowsy state of couch-lock.
OUR BLUEBERRY STRAIN QUALITY
Blueberry is an 80% indica and 20% sativa hybrid that has a lineage that goes back as far as the 1970’s. Back then growers were experimenting by crossing Thai landraces with Colombian and Mexican landraces, one of the outcomes was Juicy Fruit. The hybrid strain Juicy Fruit was subsequently crossed with an Afghani landrace by DJ Short creating the first ever Blueberry around 1979.
The buds and leaves of the new strain had a blue hue to them and it smelled of berries and fruit. DJ Short therefore aptly named her Blueberry. Even though the newly created strain consisted of at least 80% Afghani indica, it still had the original sativa effects of its ancestors.
It wasn’t until the 1990’s that DJ Short decided to bring the genetics of his Blueberry to Europe by teaming up with Dutch Passion. A number of new hybrids were created, giving birth to Blue Satellite, Blue Moonshine and Blue Velvet. The Blueberry strain hasn’t gone out of style since and has remained a staple with many coffee shops and growers ever since.
SMELL AND TASTE EFFECT FOR BLUEBERRY
Named Blueberry because of the blue hues in its leaves and buds, this strain is not only beautiful but also very potent. She holds 19.5% to 21% THC, so it packs a punch, but it is still easy on the throat when smoked and goes down smoothly. Her incredibly sweet and fruity taste with floral hints is reminiscent of blueberries and forest fruits.
The Blueberry offers a long lasting body stoned that is very relaxing but it also gives the user mild feelings of euphoria, relieving stress and providing an uplifting high. It is medicinally used as a painkiller, an anti-depressant, to help with anxiety and to promote better sleep.
