Blue Frost Strain - Everything you need to know & more!
Blue Frost is a potent hybrid strain that is the result of a cross between two very dank strains. This makes Blue Frost a dankenstein strain, as it takes two or more already dank strains and mixes them together. It’s a 60/40 indica-dominant cross, meaning that it’s fairly well-balanced. It has a potent high, with a THC percentage that can sometimes test as high as 22%. This strain belongs to the Blue family, which in the UK and the US mean very different things. In this case, it is used in the US sense and has a berry and sweet blueberry flavor and aroma.
This strain is sometimes called Frost OG, Pacific Frost strain, Blue Monster Weed, or G Funk strain.
Meet the Blues Family:Blues weed is a strain popular in the UK. It is called Blues because it has a certain smell to it, and, alongside Cheese (UK Cheese), is one of the most common types of weed that you will buy when you buy weed in the UK. It has strong indica effects and is considered to be very potent. Some people think that the Blues smell is actually an artificial chemical that some growers spray their plants with, hence the high is actually an artificial high. Alternatively, others argue that Blues simply means somewhere in the history of the strain there is the Blueberry strain. This is what it means in the case of Blue Frost. However, colloquially, the definition is different, and it means what is explained in the beginning of the paragraph.

Blue Frost is considered to be a slightly indica-dominant hybrid, registering at about a 60/40 split. This means that despite the fact that it does lean slightly towards the indica side, you’re not going to feel particularly lethargic. This strain is considered to be a very taste focused strain, but it also has a nice amount of THC content.
Blue Frost strain: indica or sativa?
Blue Frost strain geneticsBlue Frost was created by Goldenseed, who are a group of UK based breeders. They created the infamous Blue Cheese and Lemon Skunk. There’s something you may notice about both of these strains, and that’s the fact that they are both very taste focused strains. Blue Cheese and Lemon Skunk are both known for having some potency, but mainly for tasting quite unique. This is definitely true of Blue Frost as well. Blue Frost brings together the following strains in holy matrimony:
- Jack Frost
Blue Frost THC percentageThe average indica-dominant hybrid contains around 13.5% THC. Blue Frost’s average THC content comes out at a whopping 19%. The strongest phenotypes have around 22% THC content, making this strain not only a very tasty strain but also a knockout strain. Newer users should be warned: this strain can knock you off your feet. If you do feel too stoned, follow this guide on how to feel less stoned:
- Take a cold shower
- Drink a hot pot of coffee
- Lie down on your bed in the dark for a few minutes and breathe
After this, you should feel significantly better
Blue Frost priceBlue Frost isn’t that expensive as a strain. Seeds are available online, and it’s actually quite an old strain these days. When it was first created the price would have been much higher. However, these days you’re unlikely to pay more than $15 for a gram anywhere in the world. Most places will simply be the standard price of $10 a gram.
Blue Frost taste
This strain was bred for taste, and you can see this when you light it up and smoke it. To fully enjoy this strain however, you should consider getting yourself a flower vaporiser and vaping it. The taste is much better this way, as there’s no combustion of either plant material or paper. If you grind this strain up first, it will taste even better.
Blue Frost weed oil, wax, shatter, edibles etc.
You can make any strain you want into edibles. Simply decarboxylate your weed first, then mix it with a fat or oil. As mentioned before, the taste of a strain is always better inside a flower vaporizer. There’s another advantage to using a flower vaporizer as well. The leftover bud, which some people throw away, is actually incredibly potent Already Vaped Bud. Simply mix this with a fat or oil, and BANG, that’s one potent bud.
You can also make any strain in the world into an oil, wax, or shatter. This is not only a complicated process, but it’s also considered to be quite dangerous, so just be careful. This is because Butane is highly flammable, and some people have actually destroyed their houses from attempting this method. We do have a guide for making Butane Hash Oil if you’re still interested.

As an indica-dominant hybrid, you may expect to get lethargic from this strain. However, the beautiful thing about balanced strains is that the negative effects of each weed type cancel each other out. For example, the paranoia sometimes associated with strong sativas is canceled out by the relaxing effects of the indica. The lethargy sometimes associated with indicas is canceled out by the euphoric energy the sativa brings to the table. This is also why these strains are so good for treating depression and stress.
Blue Frost Strain flowering timeBlue Frost takes a little longer to grow than other strains, with a flowering time of up to 10 to 11 weeks. If you want the best results in regards to potency and flavor, it’s definitely best to leave it for the full 11 weeks.
You should top the plant by trimming any leaves at the very top of the plant. These broad leaves that sometimes cover the entire plant’s light aren’t necessary to grow and can block out light and air from getting to the bottom buds of the plant. By trimming you’re increasing both potency and yield.
