Lineage of Blue Dream
Blue Dream owes its legendary status in part to its lineage. First appearing in the coastal community of Santa Cruz, California, Blue Dream is a cross between Blueberry indica and the potent sativa, Haze. The breeding of these two highly sought-after phenotypes resulted in a sativa dominant hybrid which reflects its indica lineage with mild bodily effects typical of indica dominant strains.
Growing Blue Dream
Blue Dream grows easily, as the plant roots and sprouts quickly before producing massive yields. This strain of marijuana grows best in soil, and the vegetative stage will take the longest. Between 55-65 days, the plant will pick up the pace for the flowering stage.
Like a sativa, Blue Dream plants will stretch and branch out and become heavily laden with potent, THC-rich flowers with blue and purple hues. The dense flowers will be covered in orange hairs, and you can harvest at 8-9 weeks.
Everyone grows Blue Dream a little differently, and for this reason some plants can grow short, wide leaves characteristic of an indica. However, true Blue Dream grows like a sativa, and grows tall with narrow leaves. Unfortunately, these discrepancies in appearance have led to Blue Dream becoming one of the world's most counterfeited strains.
