Blueberry weed are popular, flavor-forward indica hybrid with a strong genetic backbone. It is a three-way cross between an indica Afghani parent and sativa Thai and Purple Thai variant parents. Blueberry was originally developed in the 1970s or 80s by DJ Short, a mysterious but prolific breeder who’s been dubbed the “Willy Wonka of pot.” Blueberry is distinguished by an unmistakable fresh blueberry smell and taste that have made it an enduring favorite. Blueberry is popular nationwide. It won top marks in the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup for Best Indica and best strain overall. Blueberry has a THC content that ranges between 15% and 24%.
Often described as a “one hit and quit” strain, Blueberry is notably potent, even for experienced cannabis enthusiasts. In relaxed settings, this physical sensation can translate into a therapeutic calmness. Thia allows users to unwind after a long day or week of work. The sativa genetics confer some slight mental effects, but these take the form of euphoric uplift more than of cerebral thoughtfulness; smokers may feel chatty or even giggly.
Blueberry Weed Strain
Blueberry weed can be grown as a clone, if clippings are taken from mature and healthy plants. Growers can also buy seeds. Creator DJ Short has legal claim to the “ancestral and parental breeding stock and intellectual development rights”. But the nature of the cannabis market is such that DJ Short has no control over his seeds once they’ve been sold, meaning that competitors like Dutch Passion are free to experiment with Blueberry’s genetics and sell their own proprietary seeds under the same name.
Blueberry weed can be grown indoors or outdoors, but outdoor growing demands restrictive conditions like moderate humidity and consistent daytime temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Rarely exceeding 3.5 feet in height — with strong lateral branching. They also have a very favorable leaf-to-bud ratio, meaning that they require minimal trimming of broad fan leaves. Growers looking to bring out the vibrant lavender to red accents in Blueberry’s leaves should artificially “shock” the plant by introducing cold temperatures late in vegetative stage, just before flowering. Plants flowers within 8 to 10 weeks when grown indoors and are ready for harvest in mid October outdoors. When mature, Blueberry has a moderate to high yield, offering about 1.5 ounces of flower per square foot of plant.
