Blueberry is one of the best-known and best-loved classic cannabis strains. Its creation dates all the way back to the 1970s when it was bred by DJ Short from Afghan and Thai genetics. It is 80% indica and 20% sativa.
Blueberry is revered as much for its deliciously fruity flavour as much as for its wonderfully euphoric yet relaxing effect. It grows into a stout plant and can develop eye-catching red, purple and blue shades during its flowering period when night-time temperatures drop by 10°C or so. Blueberry is primarily an indoor cannabis strain unless grown outdoors in a hot climate.
While it is not the easiest strain for a newbie to grow, and its nutrient regime needs careful calibration, it is a most rewarding plant in terms of its aesthetics, taste and high. Leaf deformities can occur but it is quite normal and nothing to worry about as it doesn't affect quality or yield. In perfect conditions yields can be good but otherwise they are average but then Blueberry is usually grown for its unique character.
With 19.5% THC production its high is very pleasantly euphoric while at the same time being very relaxing and unlikely to cause any feelings of discomfort and paranoia even amongst initiates. It has a soft fruity flavour that reminds you of ripe berries especially blueberries. Therapeutically it is very good for relieving occular pressure and relaxing tired eyes.
