WHY BLUE DREAM IS #1
The people's choice - Blue Dream
Blue Dream is the most popular strain in the America for the last several years. But why?

Certainly the masses find that its medicinal and stoning effects are reliably superior, time after time, year after year.
This variety is stereotypical, but elite, simple, cerebral, yet straightforward. After a large joint of Blue Dream, it's munchie time, you might high like a kite and chances are, if you were pain, its a thing of the past. As with anything popular, there are the haters who probably like something milder, or a strain that is more balanced, with CBD, THCV and other cannabinoids.

Blue Dream with some CBG
Cannabigerol (CBG) seems to work with the other cannabinoids (such as THC and CBD) to provide overall synergy, as well as balance the effects of THC. The high THC content's effect might be effectively altered by the terpene CARYOPHYLLENE OXIDE, to reduce paranoia and panic in some individuals.
"I currently am growing blue dream among many others and i'm super impressed with its potential! Started the flush process tonite and when i brushed the back of my hand on one of the tops it was actually wet almost like an oil.The rest of the pack is damn fine product as well including critical jack,blue venom,train wreck,o.g. kush and violator kush. But thank god I have 15 more B.D. and supercritical clones ready to go in."
"Very uplifting high. Great tasting weed. This is not the variety for those looking for the drugged up high. This strain is for those looking for a real mellow high! "
"I GROW IT OUT DOOR & IT A VERY BIG FAST BIG PRODUCER. It also tastes very delicious.I give it a ten outofa ten.It grows like mostly sativa tall so make sure to top her.Very good strand."
"I have grown Blue Dream for over a year now and found that bending to keep the plant low so the light penetrates deeper is a great way to maximize it's potential.. This strain is a rapid grower with potentially 100's of tops if you train it right. I plan to scrog it to keep the height I want and get the most out of it. I have a 10 by 10 room with a 1000w sodium and 1000w halide. The sodium is on a track. I have had some difficulty cloning it but I'm figuring it out. Once Blue Dream takes off you better be ready."
"I am on my 3rd crop of BlueDream indoors and am enjoying the qualities of this strain. My peeps love it and can't wait for more. It has been a little difficult for me to clone but I think I am figuring her out. Once she gets established an amazing thing happens. With some bending and tender care she wants to make a "canopy of 1000 tops." I think there is good reason for the popularity of this sugar coated, yummy and smells oh so good variety."
