What is Blue Dream?Blue Dream was created in California, and is one of the most legendary strains to come from the West Coast. If you’ve tried this strain, you will know why it has legendary status. By taking Blueberry (indica) and crossing it with Sativa Haze, this masterclass in breeding produced one of the most balanced indica-sativa crosses available. This comes to a culmination when you take in your first toke, after which you'll immediately feel both a relaxing body experience and a cerebral euphoria. Both novices and experts alike are dazzled by the 50/50 balance of Blue Dream.
Blue Dream hybridBlue Dream is one of the most legendary marijuana strains to be bestowed on the rest of the world from the undisputed kings of crossbreeds, Cali. Despite having a much better Seed Bank culture, and despite remaining true to their landrace roots, the Netherlands simply cannot compete with the ingenuity of the Cali growers. As Cali weed becomes more and more in-demand, staples like Blue Dream are in high demand in Amsterdam and other parts of the world.
Blue Dream genetics
- Blueberry (indica)
- Sativa Haze (sativa)
This is the reason this strain isn’t really a #dankenstein strain. Blue Dream crossed with something else (such as Super Blue Dream) would be a dankenstein strain. Blue Dream is part of the Haze Revolution, which began in California. This took the sativa genetics of the South American landraces, and applied it to current indicas. This created a wave of balanced hybrids, which proved to be massively popular. Blue Dream is no different. It's truly a match made in heaven!
Blue Dream THC percentage
The exact Blue Dream THC percentage is always hard to say, as it depends on the phenotype you’ve got, and this depends on the clipping or on the seeds used to grow the buds. However, it’s normally over 20%. The average range is from 21-26.5% THC, which is a pretty potent kick.
Blue Dream CBD contentBlue Dream has a CBD content of around 2% depending on the phenotype. This is what makes it so balanced. It is also what makes Blue Dream such a fantastic mmj (medical marijuana) strain.
Blue Dream price
As mentioned before, there’s a coffeeshop in Amsterdam called Coffeeshop Centraal that sells this strain for 12 euros a gram. That’s incredibly cheap for a West Coast classic, so next time you’re in dam you should definitely check it out.
If you’re in California, the price is just the standard price for mid-shelf flower, around $15 a gram.
Blue Dream tasteGet your flower vapes out for this one. Blue Dream's strain tastes great in a blunt, bong, joint, any form really! But flower vapes really bring out the flavours of your buds, especially if you grind those buds up first. Once ground up, you will find that you can still smell the haze, which brings with it hints of lemon. The main taste of Blue Dream is:
Blue Dream oil, wax, shatter, edibles etc.
Blue Dream is an incredibly popular choice for vape companies. This is also true of wax, shatter, etc. This is because it’s a balanced, haze-based hybrid, which is incredibly popular. Whether the companies actually use Blue Dream plants, or whether they just purchase the terpenes is another matter. If you get true Blue Dream shatter, wax, or oil, you will not regret it.
If you can find the plant of Blue Dream (for example at Coffeeshop Centraal) you can easily make an edible out of it. Simply vaporise the weed first, and then, afterwards, mix it with an oil or a fat, and then cook or simply eat. You could also decarboxylate your weed and then create an edible, but this is a bit more difficult. Just remember that you’re not going to smoke the decarbed weed, so you actually want it to be slightly brown. You should still be able to smell it's sweet aromas while you're cooking!
Extreme Blue Dream
Extreme Blue Dream or Super Blue Dream is Blue Dream x Super Silver Haze. It gives the Blue Dream a sativa-dominant effect which can be incredibly potent, and should be used with caution.

The Dutch are much better at sharing their strains, and as such a lot of these strains are hard to come by. You can buy some seeds online, but whether they’re real Blue Dream or not is up for debate.
