In-Depth Cannabis Strain Profile: Blue Dream

Welcome to another installment of our In-Depth Cannabis Strain Profiles series here on the True Blue Terpenes blog. This series gives you an opportunity to learn more about the cannabis strains that inspired the pure terpenes that are sold on this website. It’s always important to remember that our while our terpenes share smells and tastes of your favorite cannabis strains, they aren’t actually derived from cannabis. This means you can enjoy them in a variety of ways without worrying about psychoactive effects or getting in trouble with the law in your particular state!

What Gives Blue Dream And Other Strains Their Unique Flavors?

 

As you may already know, the flavors and smells in different strains of cannabis are derived from their terpenes. Terpenes are naturally occurring oils that are abundant in the botanical world and help deliver unique sensations to our flavor receptors. The resulting flavors are usually where the strains get their names. For example, Girl Scout Cookie cannabis resembles the flavors of the classic Thin Mint Cookie, and Super Lemon Haze is, as you can guess, tart and citrusy.

Where Did Blue Dream Originate?

Blue Dream cannabis is a sativa-dominant strain that originated in Sunny California. The hybrid strain has since become a favorite West Coast strain, and was created by crossing the strains Blueberry and Haze. This strain has a sweet, berry-like flavor and is said to offer a happy, relaxed feeling when consumed, without making you drowsy or sleepy. This effect makes this strain popular among medical marijuana users, as they can experience relief from pain, depression, or nausea while still being alert enough to move through their day.

What Terpenes Give Blue Dream Its Flavor And Aroma?

In addition to the euphoric feelings associated with this marijuana strain, the cannabis terpenes found in this strain make it taste great too. Below, we have broken down the terpenes typically found in Blue Dream cannabis.

Blue Dream Contains The Following Terpenes

  • Linalool (0 - 0.1%)
  • Myrcene (.3 - 1.1%)
  • Pinene (0 - 0.7%)
  • Limonene (0 - 0.2%)
  • Caryophyllene (0 - 0.2%)

The high levels of the myrcene terpene is to thank for the fruity, blueberry flavor found in this strain. Linalool, which also makes an appearance in Blue Dream, is known for having a distinct sweetness, which distinguishes this strain from other fruit-flavored strains. These terpenes work together to give this strain the unique sweet berry flavor people love so much.
