Fat, spear shaped buds coated with a heavy layer of trichomes glisten over the pale green foliage and cream orange pistils. While it’s almost a shame to break such beautiful buds down -- the reward is an intense waft of sweet-tinged floral funk. Strong, tell tale berry notes from Blue Dream are the most prominent flavors with a playful hints of haze and a slight tropical fruit undertone.

Those dominant berry notes translate smoothly to sweet smoke that at first recalls fresh baked blueberry muffins and slowly fades into a sugary inflected earthiness. Both of which create a unique flavor profile that lives up to it’s parent strains considerable legacies.

The effects are a sativa bliss, producing an uplifting, spacey euphoria that dissolves anxiety with each pleasurable puff. With a whopping 30.5 mg of Myrcene, this strain also packs a painkilling wallop presenting a much sought after unity of cerebral stimulation and physical relief, it’s the perfect combination for everything, from stimulating appetite to inducing sleep.
