Anyone who has smoked weed with the words blue or haze, knows the potential of Blue Haze, a strain sometimes known as Blueberry Haze. This award-winning, potent strain is a mix of Blueberry and Amnesia Haze, creating a high sativa result. But better have some experience for cultivation. The taste of Blue Haze is something a smoker may never forget.
Overview of Blue Haze
Blue Haze is 80% sativa and has an above average THC content reaching to 24% with CBD content of 0.6%. The buds are standard green, dense, sticky, and covered in frosty crystals. They are medium to large and cylindrical. Due to its sticky characteristics, it's difficult to break up so you better find a grinder.
Shades of purple and blue are seen in other phenotypes due to its high concentrations of anthocyanin pigments from the Blueberry strain. With a sweet, blueberry taste and a touch of wood and earthy undertone, it reminds people of picking fruit from an orchard. The exhale leaves a pungent smell, but it is a sweet, musky, herbal scent. With the aroma comes a thick smoke.
Named "Best Sativa" at the High Times Cannabis Cup 2001, it has a similar profile to Blue Dream, another popular strain.
