Outdoor. You hear the word and immediately images of sub par pot and squished nugs are mustered by your mind. There’s such a stigma against outdoor that some companies have even rebranded it as “sun grown”. And honestly, it’s a little hard toss blame after you smoke nug after nug of insanely frosty and clean indoor bud and endlessly encounter harsh outdoor bud. But that’s where this Blue Dream comes in.
Sweet, clean, and beautiful – this Blue Dream seemed to be babied by it’s grower despite it’s roots in the unforgiving great outdoors. Upon first inspection, the initial impression is made by the large, dense nugs. No popcorn was found in this bag, only sativa like spears of blueberry goodness. The buds themselves looked rather healthy, not stressed or deprived of nutrients. One whiff of the bag reveals an aroma of sweet blueberry and trees. And breaking up the big frosty buds funks up the room with the berry.
Smoking this stuff was pretty enjoyable. The nugs broke up great, they were just the right cure and burned evenly. The smoke tasted clean, not too harsh or “trimmy” like some outdoor or lower grade ganja. You’re definitely blasted with a sweet berry flavor every time you smoke it.
The high is an excellent exemplification of a sativa dominant hybrid. You get a nice relaxing body stone that isn’t too heavy, paired with a uplifting mind high that’s clear enough for work. It’s a fantastic all-around smoke for anytime of the day, from morning to night. It’s not going to give you an incredible amount of energy, or help with deeper pain. But I could most definitely see this as a potent remedy for depression, anxiety, and lack of appetite. Have I mentioned the munchies? I’ve never eaten better on this strain. As a person who suffers from an eating disorder, having the power to muster the urge to eat is phenomenal. Maybe not the best bud for someone watching their caloric intake.
You can’t go wrong with Blue Dream, it’s a fantastic sativa dominant hybrid that’s a perfect buzz for any toker, any time of the day. Between the stellar flavor, the solid stone, and the amazing price point ($150 for 1oz), this strain is a must stock for every stoner.
