What is the Blue Dream Strain Good For?
Blue Dream is a strain of cannabis that offers a plethora of physical and mental benefits. Blue Dream delivers classic sativa effects of energy, motivation and calmness while also providing its user with indica effects of calmness and physical relaxation. This strain is great for lifting your mood and making you more active, but should not be used medically for anxiety as the high THC levels could make the condition worse.
As Blue Dream’s psychoactive high peaks, users find their bodies to be “couch locked” or in a state of such deep relaxation that they’re unable/unwilling to move their bodies from its resting state. This hazy calm is used best for rehabilitation and rest after its initial energy-boosting phase is over.
If you are living with stomach pain, cramps, or nausea that are all unrelated to any sort of mental illness, Blue Dream can alleviate the discomfort you are feeling while also giving you the boost you need to get you through the day.
Side Effects 101: How Does Blue Dream Make You Feel?
As a sativa-dominant hybrid, you’re going to be getting the best of both worlds through the Blue Dream strain. Before we get into the effects, let’s explain the differences between a head high and a body high.
Body highs are generally associated with indicas because indica strains tend to relax the body of the user with its higher THC content. Sativas, which generally have lower THC levels and a bit higher CBD content tend to give “head highs.” Sativa strains tend to provide a mind-altering effect as well as a mood and energy boost. Many users report that sativa strains can also increase creativity.
Speaking of cannabis compounds, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are not the only two factors that play a role in the effects of Blue Dream. Each cannabis strain contains a unique combination of terpenes – compounds which provide the plant with its unique aromas and flavors – that can also affect the strain’s psychoactive effect.
Can Blue Dream Get You High?
As a sativa-dominant hybrid strain that boasts a THC content of 17% to 24%, Blue Dream will most definitely get you high.
Blue Dream’s psychoactive high should be felt almost instantly after the first hit. A cerebral, energizing head-high lifts users up and provides smokers with a creative boost. Many users report feeling happier and more euphoric after consumption.
In addition to its positive, sativa effects, Blue Dream also delivers an equally desirable indica high. Body sedation, deep relaxation and an extreme sense of calmness washes over the user shortly after the energizing sativa effects, allowing for a rejuvenating finish.
