The Blueberry strain is renowned for its spectacular flavor and euphoric highs. The strain was created by the iconic breeder DJ short. Blueberry’s parent strains are crosses between the indica Afghani and two sativas of Thai and Purple Thai. It first emerged in the late 1970s in the Netherlands.
This potent strain is known to have THC levels at around 20%. First-timers should avoid it until you are more familiar with strains and their effects. Its high is known to last up to 3-4 hours and suppresses pain while couch-locking the consumer. It can cause sleepiness and a state of euphoria, lifting one’s spirits.
Users are quickly struck with a sense of physical heaviness that may be disorienting in situations that require mobility or coordination. In relaxed settings, this physical sensation can translate into a therapeutic calmness, allowing users to unwind after a long day or week of work. The sativa genetics confer some slight mental effects, but these take the form of euphoric uplift more than of cerebral thoughtfulness; smokers may feel chatty or even giggly.
Medically speaking, the Blueberry strain has almost narcotic properties. It is of use to those with pain conditions — both short-term pain due to injury or exercise or long-term chronic pain related to disease or nerve damage. It can also help relieve some of the troubling symptoms of stress, anxiety and PTSD, creating a physical relaxation strong enough to ease a racing, pre-occupied mind.
