A Brief History of Blue Dream
Blue Dream’s roots in sunny California sprouted in the early 2000s, and because of its well-rounded effects, high potency, and appearance, it quickly became popular across the country and then across the border to Canada in just a couple of years.
So how were the first seeds of Blue Dream planted? It happened in the idyllic surf town of Santa Cruz, which was also the capital of the medical marijuana community in the States during the ‘90s.
During that time, local activists began trailblazing the medical cannabis movement by starting the Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana (WAMM). The organization focused on patients’ rights and became the first cannabis advocate collective to gain non-profit status in the United States. Co-founder Valerie Corral had a vital role in the passage of Prop 215, which made California the first American state to legalize medical cannabis.
With the cannabis culture deeply ingrained in Santa Cruz, it was natural for growers to get creative and explore trying different crosses. In 2003, an unknown grower decided to cross the indica-dominant DJ Short’s Blueberry with the citrusy, sativa-heavy Super Silver Haze, another local strain found in the area, to create a powerful mixture of effects and aromas.
When the flowering time came, the growers must have felt like they hit a goldmine.
Blue Dream’s buds are filled with dense, deep green wide leaves and striking orange pistils accented by hypnotizing frosty white trichomes that shine over the flowering buds. Its potency is deemed higher than average strains, making it even more famous. Today, Blue Dream is considered a top-selling strain in both the recreational and medical spheres because of its marvelous effects.

Cultivating the Blue Dream Strain
Cultivating the Blue Dream strain falls on average difficulty, and when done properly, can produce around 22 ounces of dried flower per plant. DJ Short’s Blueberry has a Central Asian heritage, while Super Silver Haze thrives well in South Asian climates.
Novice growers can efficiently grow the Blue Dream indoor at any given time of the year, or during the last weeks of September to early October for outdoor growing setups. In order to keep the plant thriving indoors, growers are advised to top the plants early, as they tend to grow up to five feet in height. This strain is known to possess a natural resilience against mildew and mould.
In the hands of an experienced cultivator with hydroponics, the Blue Dream can produce high yields. Its slow start is acceptable, as it is expected to quickly flower after nine to 100 weeks. Expert growers can choose to use soil since Blue Dream flavours develop the sweetest with this method.
