Blue Dream is true hybrid known for it’s pain relieving qualities and great taste. The buds are pale-green with vibrant orange hairs, and a sticky texture. The strain has become popular nationwide in recent years, accounting for the large variances in appearance and testing results.
Blue Dream truly gives the best of the sativa and indica worlds — a balanced sense of euphoric energy and creativity paired with a mellow and focused calm down period.
Many users report it’s effectiveness in treating anxiety, however using too much of this powerful strain has caused some to experience paranoia. This strain also provides strong and long lasting pain relief.
Crossed from Blueberry and Super Silver Haze, the Blue Dream strain has become a favorite among growers as well, yielding an average of 7 pounds per plant. Depending on the phenotype – Indica vs Sativa dominant, the onset of Blue Dream’s effects can vary.
A quick search of the Instagram API reveals there have been approximately 274,500 pictures tagged “#bluedream’ and the chart below from Google Trends illustrates it’s demand against other popular strains.

These five strains have been chosen in honor of Super Bowl XLIX, the much anticipated face-off between the NFC champs, Seattle Seahawks, and the AFC victors, New England Patriots.
The game will be played on Sunday February 1, 2015, and these popular strains seem to have been tailored for the event.
1. Blue Dream
Both the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots boast blue as a team color, and both teams are dreaming of championship rings. Blue Dream is the perfectly balanced hybrid strain crossed from Blueberry and Haze. The sativa effects strike immediately with clear cerebral euphoria before settling nicely into total body relaxation that provides relief from stress and pain.
2. Beast Mode 2.0
This strain was named by a Seattle producer, in honor of the Seahawk’s running back Marshawn Lynch. Beastmode 2.0 could not be named more appropriately for the biggest event in this NFL season, as the strain is reported to hit users “hard and fast,” just like Marshawn.
This East coast inspired, sativa-dominant hybrid often tests higher in Cannabidiol (CBD), the cannabinoid known to enhance muscle relaxation and reduce stress, and leaves users feeling exactly how players and fans alike need to feel for the big game —energized and motivated.
This hybrid strain promotes mellow and long lasting relief from stress and pain, and just like a player’s sweatband, this strain leaves users feeling as though their crown has been wrapped lovingly in a fresh, dry headband.
5. Amnesia Haze
This energizing sativa strain is known to reduce pain and stress while hitting users with a mood-boosting smile and clear-headed functionality. Amnesia Haze makes it feel like your brain is being tackled, minus the risk of concussion.
