Blueberry was originally created by DJ Short in the 1970s using Afghan and Thai genetics. It is an 80% indica and 20% sativa cannabis strain that is still much in demand today - even in the coffee shops of Amsterdam despite the access to the very latest strains it remains a favourite of many people.
Blueberry's qualities include a mouthwatering fruity flavour and a euphoric yet relaxing effect. It grows into a strong plant and often develops lovely red, purple and blue colourations towards the end of its flowering period especially when night-time temperatures drop by 10°C or so. Blueberry is primarily an indoor cannabis strain unless grown outdoors in a very warm climate although a greenhouse could be a solution for those in more marginal zones. Outdoors in the northern hemisphere it will be ready for harvest during the month of October.
It can be a bit tricky for a newbie to grow and and its nutrient regime needs careful calibration but for those with a little experience under their belt it is a most rewarding plant in terms of its aesthetic appearance, flavour and effect. Quite often leaf deformities can occur but it is quite normal with this plant and absolutely nothing to worry about as this will not affect either quality or yield. In very good conditions yields can be good but otherwise they are average but then Blueberry is usually grown for its unique character more than its yielding potential.
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 one of ripe berries especially blueberries. Therapeutically it is very good for relieving occular pressure, e.g. as a result of glaucoma, and relaxing tired eyes.
