The Blue Dragon strain is an indica strain that packs a punch with its pungent aroma, even with its unassuming appearance. Blue Dragon provides all the potent effects indica lovers enjoy without that heavy lethargic feeling that comes with strong indicas. Blue Dragon is the mythical creature that you never thought would be coming back with a vengeance.
Thought to have originated in California, Blue Dragon is a cross of two classic strains, the indica-dominant Blueberry and sativa-dominant Sour Diesel. The Blueberry strain is a legendary award winning strain that claimed the title in High Times Cannabis Cup 2000 for Best Indica. Other parent strain Sour Diesel is an invigorating sativa-dominant strain that delivers energizing, dreamy cerebral effects that have earned this strain its similarly legendary status among cannabis consumers and fanatics. This strain is known for relieving stress and pain; both characteristics that shine through in the Blue Dragon strain.
EFFECTS AND USES
Sometimes measuring over 24% THC, Blue Dragon is very potent, giving users an intensely euphoric feeling and heavy body buzz. The strain’s initial effects may confuse consumers into smoking continuously but this may be too heavy for some users. The short-lived euphoria makes Blue Dragon the perfect nighttime strain. The Blue Dragon strain leaves consumers feeling relaxed, euphoric, happy, sleepy, and uplifted. Some of the medical uses for Blue Dragon includes stress, depression, pain, nausea, insomnia, and headaches. A few of the noted negatives with this strain are dry eyes, dry mouth, and anxiety. For novice smokers or those prone to anxiety, its recommended you start out with a smaller dose and work your way up as your tolerance level increases. If a novice smoker is interested in experimenting with a larger dose of the Blue Dragon strain, we recommend using it as a nighttime strain to ensure time for proper rest.
APPEARANCE AND AROMA
The flowers of this hybrid often turn dark purple and are covered in bright orange pistils and white trichomes. My particular batch of this strain featured dark green buds, spotted with random patches of different shades of purple and blue, with orange pistils. This bud is dense and the nugs range in size from medium to large. A grinder is recommended for this strain as it tends to be very sticky and stubbornly maintains its structure when trying to break it up with the hands. This fruity aroma proves quite delightful to the senses. The taste is equally sweet, with the blueberry coming through over the top of the expected diesel taste.
For consumers interested in cultivating their own Blue Dragon plant, the strain requires a roughly 8 to 9 week flowering period. When properly cured, the buds exhibit a vibrant variety of colors including blue and purple. This strain can be grown both indoors and outdoors.
Blue Dragon is a new favorite strain of ours and for good reason. A mixture of powerful effects, aesthetically pleasing appearance and aroma, and extraordinary parent strains make for an all-around well balanced and satisfying strain. The Blue Dragon strain is sure to impress even the toughest of critics.
