It’s technically a hybrid but has such powerful indica leanings that it’s most renowned for helping patients relieve pain and relax. It’s become legendary because of its potency. The combination of its incredible strength and it’s pronounced indica effects make this bud well-suited for night-time medication, especially when the patient is getting ready for bed.

Blueberry Kush Origins

Blueberry Kush is a cross between Blueberry and OG Kush, both of which are well-respected strains in their own right. Blueberry won the 2000 Cannabis Cup for Best Indica. This strain can be traced all the way back to the late 1970s when the famous American breeder DJ Short was working with a variety of landrace strains. Blueberry has storied history thanks to its cultivation and presence in a variety of different seed banks. It’s famous for its blueberry flavor, high THC potency, and relaxing effects.

OG Kush is called the OG for a reason– this hybrid has made its mark on all types of famous strains from the West Coast. It’s an indica-leaning hybrid, and patients love it for its ability to produce feelings of euphoria while reducing stress. The earthy flavor of this bud includes both woody notes and a piney, almost lemon-like aroma. The combination of OG Kush and Blueberry does not disappoint– Blueberry Kush, looks, tastes, and smells beautiful. Best of all, it helps patients feel better in a hurry.

Blueberry Kush Appearance

While some people associate Blueberry Kush with bluish purple colors in parts, the strain will not necessarily have a blue appearance at all. The buds can be long and slender at times, but will normally come as shorter, fatter nuggets. The vibrant green buds are covered in orange trichomes, and premium will look shiny because of all the crystals coating it. The abundance of crystals is a promising indication of the high THC count offered by this bud. The dense conical buds will get a lot bigger as soon as you start breaking them up or grinding them, and they’ll also release a lot of their aroma at that point.

Blueberry Kush Taste and Smell

Blueberry Kush borrows some aromas from both of its parent strains but seems to have been more heavily influenced by the Blueberry side. This may be because patients are already used to some earthy flavors from their medicine. The berry notes, however, bring something new and exciting. The smell and flavor are evident as soon as you get this bud out and become even more pronounced when you break it up. The taste of the bud is true to its flavor, and the blueberry flavor makes it a favorite for patients who love sweet and fruity buds.

Blueberry Kush Effects

The most widely-reported effect of Blueberry Kush is that it reduces anxiety and helps patients feel relaxed. The happy, sleepy feeling kicks in for patients soon after consumption and provides a comfortable heavy-bodied feeling that is best suited for relaxing on the couch or going to bed. The deep feelings of relaxation extend to the stomach. Nausea is reduced, and many patients report having quite the appetite after they smoke Blueberry Kush. It’s hard to say how much of this is because the delicious taste of this flower puts people in the mood to eat, but the strain is definitely popular for patients who have trouble eating.

This strain does not normally make patients experience serious negative side effects. The most commonly reported is dry mouth, followed by dry eyes and less frequent dizziness. Some patients report a kick of euphoria at the beginning of the experience as their depression and anxiety melt away. After a few minutes, most patients begin to feel relaxed, mellow, and tired, while still very happy. This is a great bedtime bud for people who have a hard time unwinding at the end of the day. It treats pain, stress, and depression, which makes it easier to focus on happy thoughts as you drift to sleep.
