Story

Though the creator remains a mystery, this strain came out of the Santa Cruz area medical scene in Northern California and has since blown up in every medical marijuana marketplace around the country since, becoming one of the most popular strains available.  The strain was recently recreated by DJ Short himself as “Azure Haze”, using a special Silver Haze mother and a Blueberry F4, one generation closer to the mother plant than the F5 used in the original cross.

Aroma

Sweet and floral berry, often with a hint of citrus-sandalwood sharpness from the Haze.

Qualities

Very uplifting and cerebral, it takes mostly after its Haze father — but in the background exists a strong sense of body relaxation and quality pain relief.  Energetic and aware to start, its potency may still catch some users by surprise — there are some rushy tendencies early on.  The strain evokes lots of creative energy despite occasional bouts of scatter-brained distraction, and at times the user will find themselves in a state of near-euphoria.  Solid body relief seems to increase as it goes along, building until it becomes more of an Indica feeling to finish; warm and relaxed, with the patient completely at-ease.  We recommend this strain as a daytime or early evening choice, a great way to take the edge off of the day and relax the mind and body for a restful night of sleep as the effects decline.

Grow Medium

Blue Dream normally grows bigger in hydro, but gets the best flavor in soil.  It grows slow at first, but once it gets kicked into flower, it will stretch a bit and will branch out more than it did initially.  Training helps to maximize yield, but the dense, rounded nuggets this strain produces will weigh heavy and reward a skilled grower with a very above-average yield.
