The Blue Dream strain is one of cannabis’ most popular Sativa-dominant hybrids, first coming onto the scene in Northern California, then exploding nationwide as the proliferation of medical cannabis increased. The strain is a perfect example of a Sativa-Indica fusion — combining a selected Santa Cruz Haze mother with a DJ Short’s Blueberry F4 male made this a Sativa-dominant plant, but with the most desirable traits of the Blueberry father intact, including its sweet aroma and large, dense nug structure.
Blue Dream strain is uplifting yet smooth and anxiety-free, perfect for patients who like more of an “”uppy”” strain, but don’t want it to get into the nervous/racy area. The sandalwood Haze-meets-blueberry muffin aroma and flavor make Blue dream a crowd favorite, while its relatively fast flowering time and high production makes it a grower’s favorite… its popularity certainly makes sense!”
Though the creator remains a mystery, this strain came out of the Santa Cruz area medical scene in Northern California and has since blown up in every medical marijuana marketplace around the country since, becoming one of the most popular strains available. The strain was recently recreated by DJ Short himself as “Azure Haze”, using a special Silver Haze mother and a Blueberry F4, one generation closer to the mother plant than the F5 used in the original cross.
Sweet and floral berry, often with a hint of citrus-sandalwood sharpness from the Haze.
Much like the smell, it’s floral berry with some almost ‘purple’ notes at times (grape, flowers) — some expressions are heavy on the floral, almost hitting a lavender note at times.
Very uplifting and cerebral, it takes mostly after its Haze father — but in the background exists a strong sense of body relaxation and quality pain relief. Energetic and aware to start, its potency may still catch some users by surprise — there are some rushy tendencies early on. The strain evokes lots of creative energy despite occasional bouts of scatter-brained distraction, and at times the user will find themselves in a state of near-euphoria. Solid body relief seems to increase as it goes along, building until it becomes more of an Indica feeling to finish; warm and relaxed, with the patient completely at-ease. We recommend this strain as a daytime or early evening choice, a great way to take the edge off of the day and relax the mind and body for a restful night of sleep as the effects decline.
Light of Jah is a sativa-dominant cannabis strain whose name is often used interchangeably with Jack Herer, but may also refer to a Jack Herer and Afghani hybrid. This hybridized rendition still leans toward the sativa side with uplifting effects that fuel creativity and positive moods. Its flavor is a sweet combination of tropical fruit and hashy, pepperyspice.
Romulan strain, named after the alien Star Trek race, is a powerful indica revered for its potent therapeutic qualities. Though mostly indica, Romulan growers insist sativa genetics have crept in over time, lending it intense cerebral effects. These squat, pine-scented plants produce dense frosty buds that have found their following among connoisseurs in B.C. and the Pacific Northwest. A deep, sedating relaxation makes Romulan a favorite strain for patients treating muscle spasms and nerve damage. Many hybridized variations of Romulan exist, but nearly all can promise a full body calm with heavily intoxicating properties.
The Alien OG strain is a cross of Tahoe OG and Alien Kush. As one of the most potent strains available, this indica-dominant hybrid has tested as high as 28% THC. Alien OG kush has the typical lemon-pine “OG” smell and flavor, and an intense high that combines heavy indica body effects and a psychedelic cerebral buzz. Beginners and novices, be sure to take it slow with this heavy-hitter.
East Coast Sour Diesel is a fast-acting attitude lifter that patients love for its truly sativa effects. This strain has a sour lemon smell and taste that’s crisp and uplifting. East Coast Sour Diesel is powerful so new patients should be cautious. Those looking to alleviate anxiety or get some sleep may want to skip this high energy medicine.
Lifesaver (or Life Saver) is an indica-dominant hybrid that lives up to its name in more ways than one. This bud offers a tart, candy-like fruit flavor alongside some invaluable therapeutic power. Lifesaver was created by inventive breeders BOG Seeds as a cross between their own BOG Bubble and JCB (which is itself a cross of Jack’s Cleaner and Blueberry). The result is a dynamically-flavored flower with lasting and balanced potency. Lifesaver’s THC content has been measured at between 12% and 21%.
A sister plant to our Deadman OG, this hybrid uses a different example of the Mandarin on the same Deadhead OG mother plant. The results are more citrusy and less OG than the Deadman, bringing more of the Mandarin to the party. The uplifting Mandarin takes control of the majority of effects, as this is not a sedative strain at all — this one is social, active, and great for daytime use.
This strain has taken the cannabis scene by storm since its release, with a variety of choice phenotypes (including Raskal’s own WiFi #3 selection) being frantically traded throughout the scene. Known for its great combination of bag appeal and potency, The White is a good match for the OG because it receives a needed boost of flavor and character.
Sour Kush might be one of the best choices out there for those looking for daytime pain relief. Providing consumers with an uplifting experience without overwhelming sedative effects, this hybrid is great for day-to-day consumption. Sour Kush is slightly sativa-dominant, igniting a giggly and euphoric feeling. The indica effects, however, present themselves a few minutes after consumption. This strain is extremely pungent, so it’s best stored in tightly sealed containers.
THC: 21.76% CULTIVATOR: CLONE GROWN LINEAGE: SUPER SKUNK X SATIVA AROMA: Buttery and sweet sap EFFECT: Slowly building head Euphoria that leads into a mellow and hypnotic zone. MEDICAL: Muscle aches, spasms, aches and pains
Belladonna is a mostly sativa strain that also carries good indica characteristics making for a very nice hybrid. A faster flowering time than typical sativa strains makes Belladonna a favorite among growers. With a fruity smell and a trippy high Paradise Seeds has bred a winner.
Along with Blueberry, the Flo lines are known as legendary breeder DJ Short’s best work. Though they share the same genetic pool (Afghani and two different Thai lines), they are quite different strains, with the Flo taking on the exotic aroma of the Purple Thai and the Blueberry taking on more of the Afghani sweetness.
The Flo line is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with an Indica base, meaning that it has uplifting mental effects and more sedative physical effects. A perfect choice for daytime relaxation without bleariness, Flo is maybe the most popular strain in the Colorado cannabis scene over the past 5 years.
Mother’s Milk strain, brought into existence by Sensi Seeds, is a 70% sativa-dominant strain with heavy Haze genetics. This Jack Herer cousin typically forms spear-shaped buds that carry more weight and density than your archetypal sativa. Its aroma is sweet and tangy with earthy undertones that provide a smooth, complex flavor profile.
