Being a 50/50 hybrid, you get the best of both worlds with this strain of cannabis. The effects are instant & plentiful, making it an instant favorite among most MMJ patients. However, as with all strains of cannabis, the specific phenotype you are medicating with is unique and has its own characteristics.
Having said that, I will say that Blue Dream typically seems to have the same overall characteristics, regardless of phenotype. Generally speaking, the Blue Dream strain is popular for removing all types of stress and anxiety. Its calming mind-warp is a staple for the strain that is prominent in even the strongest Indica-dominant batches of Blue Dream I have come across.
Long, thick, tan hairs are common when visually inspecting the Blue Dream strain. The smell is always rich, with a subtle sugar-cookie funk. This particular batch of Blue Dream has really frosty buds covered in so many sparkling trichomes that it made the overall appearance of the buds seem lighter in color. The vapor from the Blue Dream strain is super smooth, coating the entire mouth with a sweet blueberry sugar taste on the exhale.
