Blue Dream Terpene Profile
Saying that Blue Dream smells like blueberries isn’t wrong, it’s just not the whole story. It’s fruity and sweet without being overpowering. It’s mild but memorable. Honestly, it’s downright delicious, and it has a surprisingly simple terpene profile.
While the terpene profile of any plant can vary due to a variety of factors (weather, farming techniques, soil quality, etc.), the majority of Blue Dream strains are dominant in Myrcene and Alpha-Pinene.
Myrcene has a fruity, clover-like aroma and is one of the most common terpenes. It has powerful sedative effects, which is part of the reason that Blue Dream is so relaxing. Alongside that though, myrcene also has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antimutagenic properties.
It should come as no surprise that Alpha-Pinene has a strong “pine” aroma, but it’s also found in other conifer trees, rosemary, eucalyptus, and even orange peels. This invigorating terpene has potential anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anti-ulcerogenic, and gastroprotective properties. Basically, alpha-pinene is a heavy-hitter.
This terpene blend is great for those who want to stay calm during a hectic day, or for those who are looking for non-psychoactive ways to manage pain. One of the coolest things about this strain for cannabis users, however, is that Myrcene naturally affects the blood-brain barrier. This makes it easier for THC to get to the brain and is what gives it such an uplifting, cerebral high. Speaking of which...
The Blue Dream Effect
Every customer will have their own personal tastes, but Blue Dream distinguishes itself by catering to a variety of needs. This cannabis strain is Sativa-dominant. This means it's good for managing pain, inducing relaxation, and encouraging a calmer mental attitude. Having said that, this Hybrid’s Sativa roots manage to elevate a consumer’s state of mind while boosting alertness and avoiding that crippling couch-lock.
Like we just said, the Abstrax Blue Dream blend is labeled as a Sativa. This can possibly be confusing to people who read that Blue dream is a Hybrid (technically, it is a hybrid), or who have found the strain labeled otherwise in stores. However, if the spectrum was drawn as a line with Sativa and Indica on either end with Hybrid in the middle, Blue Dream would fall closer to Sativa than Hybrid.
Luckily, it manages to combine the best of both worlds - retaining the stimulation of its parent, Super Silver Haze, while embracing the firm Indica impact of Blueberry. The high is invigorating but grounded, profound and tranquil but somehow manages to avoid the overbearing drowsiness inherent in some Indicas.
The Success of Blue Dream
Blue Dream made its fame in California but became a familiar favorite for consumers throughout Colorado, Washington, Oregon, etc. The blueberry strain stood out with over $9 million in combined sales during this time. This beat out second-place contenders by almost 50% in Washington (Cherry OG) and 30% in Colorado (Durban Poison).
More recently, the race has become closer with the heavy-handed Gorilla Glue #4, provocative Durban Poison, and brawny Bruce Banner #3 selling well. While the number one spot may come and go, Blue Dream is too entrenched in the stoner arsenal to ever truly vanish.
Blue Dream Cultivation
An important factor in popularity is availability. When there is a large supply of something, people tend to notice. Blue Dream is widely available and it’s not trademarked or limited in any way. Any farmer who wishes can simply purchase clippings or clones and begin growing to turn a profit. Speaking of profit, Blue Dream is a hardy crop that has high, predictable yields relative to other phenotypes.
It’s meaty, with a fast-moving root system that promotes growth and stability for its dense buds. This strain is resistant to devastating powder mildew and can be grown in the higher temperatures that can fry weaker strains. With such durability, it’s easier to calculate how much weed can be grown from a particular crop. From a grower’s perspective, Blue Dream is a wise decision.
Blue Dream is grown in a huge number of farms to supply the massive public demand. However, there is no universal methodology governing these farms, so each location will have different growing methods. Nitrate levels, light exposure, and temperature settings can all affect the final product. These different cultivation parameters often result in each farm of Blue Dream having a slightly different terpene composition. So, they all end up tasting slightly different too.
