About the Blue Dream strain
The Blue Dream strain is made by crossing Blueberry with Haze. It contains 18% THC but at the same time has a very low percentage of CBD of about 0.1%, which makes it an ideal strain for experienced users.

- The clone version of Blue Dream is said to have originated in Northern California. The exact person who found it is unknown, but it is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that has become quite famous in the state.
- The version by Mystic Seeds is a hybrid that is largely indica dominant and uses DJ Short’s Blueberry crossed with a Kush strain that originated in Los Angeles.
- The DJ Short type of strain is relatively new, made by crossing a Silver Haze and a Blueberry F4. It is called by the name of Azure Haze.
- The version that was created by Humboldt Seed Organization, is a strain that is sativa dominant and is derived from seeds that are feminized in nature. Using a cross of Super Silver Haze and Blueberry, this particular type can be cultivated indoors as well.
Growing the strain
Weed plants are actually cultivated by using the feminized seeds from the female versions of the plants. Manipulating the amount of light that they receive is important because they don’t need a lot of light in order to grow.
It is quite easy to grow Blue Dream indoors, where it grows about 47-67 inches. When the buds are ready for harvest, they turn a light green and become sticky with orange tones along with a lot of trichomes.
The sweet tones of the plant can definitely attract parasites, so cultivating it indoors is the best option. Climates that are subtropical or Mediterranean also work well if you wish to grow the plant outdoors. Growing it outdoors is still a risk, however, as spider mite infestations are very common when it comes to cultivating this plant outside the house.
The strain’s strong sativa content makes the hybrid give the user a good high that alters the mood. The high that it provides is said to have effects that give the consumer relaxation that leads to calm minds and bodies. As the high grows in intensity, the user becomes really relaxed, and the after-effects leave the consumer with a feeling of haziness and calmness at the same time.

This gives the strain a balance that is well-liked by most of the users that purchase it. It is also said that having it at least two hours before bedtime gives the user the ideal effect.
