Blackberry Haze Strain Information:
Blueberry and Haze UK are two strains that have gained renown for their potency and unusual flavor profiles. No surprise, then, that this cross between the two is a popular hybrid in its own right. Blueberry Haze leans sativa, but its body high can prove heavy and almost incapacitating if the bud is consumed in larger quantities. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has consistently found the strain to have between 14% and 23% THC, averaging out at about 16%.
When properly trimmed, Blueberry Haze’s flowers are small to medium in size, with a clustered, popcorn-like appearance. The buds have the dense structure typically associated with indicas, with the small leaves curled tightly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a mossy green, twisted through with hairy orange pistils. An even coating of translucent white trichomes covers the flowers, giving them a silvery cast and a very sticky texture.
When properly cured, these flowers give off the overwhelming aroma of blueberries, sweet and slightly tart. Lurking underneath is the spicy, herbal aroma — almost reminiscent of tea — that Haze fans will find familiar. This spicy character is intensified when the bud is ground up or broken open. When combusted, Blueberry Haze burns with a smooth palatable smoke. On the exhale, the smoke tastes fruity and somewhat sweet. Enjoy this unique bud in a clean pipe or a joint to fully savor its taste.
Blueberry Haze hits the smoker quickly. The most obvious effect is an increase in cerebral stimulation, with thought flowing from one to the next in rapid, free association. This kind of recursive thinking can lead to paranoia for some. In the right set and setting though, Blueberry Haze’s jolt to the head can be buzzy and motivational. It can provide the energy needed to engage in anything from cleaning the house to getting some exercise. The strain’s focused, analytical mindset can also be an aid in accomplishing work, whether it’s task-based, analytical, or free-flowing and creative. As the high wears on, a gradual body high sets in and may deepen if dosage is increased. In large enough amounts, Blueberry Haze can even lull users into a deep and restful sleep. If you find yourself relatively energetic, though, you may want to take advantage of this strain’s meld of mental and physical effects, which can serve as a powerful aphrodisiac. Blueberry Haze is a great choice for social use or for some much needed “me time.” Because of its taper down into sedation, this strain is recommended for use during the late afternoon to early evening.
Medical cannabis patients may also find value in Blueberry Haze’s versatile effects. It can help those suffering from mild to moderate stress or depression to spend their time more presently and mindfully. The bud’s physical relaxation can also soothe all kinds of deep-seated aches and pains, both temporary and chronic, Meanwhile, anti-inflammatory effects can soothe minor irritations like nausea and headaches. As noted, this strain can work against insomnia by bringing on heavy and lasting sleep. Because its early sativa effects are often intense, Blueberry Haze is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or anxiety or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Fortunately, seeds of Blueberry Haze are readily available online. This bud may be a difficult grow for newcomers to cultivation, though. Once obtained, it can be grown indoors or out, although success outdoors calls for a semi-humid climate with consistent daytime sunlight and temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. As with many predominantly sativa strains, this bud can also grow very tall; indoor growers should be sure to cut back their plants early on in order to train them to fit in limited space. Blueberry Haze flowers within a long 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors and is known to offers an average yield. After the long and laborious growing process, growers should also take the time to properly cure their harvested buds to preserve their flavor and psychoactivity.
A bold but soothing strain, Blueberry Haze is a must-try for indica and sativa lovers alike. It’s further proof that two powerhouse strains can be bred to yield something equally appealing.
