Blueberry Strain Overview

Blueberry, or “DJ Short Blueberry,” as it is also known, is what most people consider an A-lister in the world of cannabis strains. This indica shot to strain stardom in 2000 when judges at the High Times Cannabis Cup named it “Best Indica.” A genetic mix of Purple Thai, Highland Thai, and Afghani, Blueberry’s history stems from American breeder DJ Short’s cross-breeding experimentation of landrace strains in the late 1970s. A sweet and fruity strain that delivers a delicious dose of euphoria, this high-THC strain is a popular option among medical cannabis patients who want to ease pain and stress. 

The aesthetic appeal of Blueberry is equally as appealing as its flavor. Exhibiting vibrant hues of green, this strain is as refreshing as a bowl of freshly plucked blueberries. Experts trace the strain’s early days to somewhere in California, but nowadays, DJ Short’s award-winning Blueberry is grown all over the map. Users report that a single night of sweet blueberry may give you a mood boost, full-body relaxation, and a peaceful night’s rest.

Blueberry Strain Effects & Common Usage

The Blueberry strain is enriched with between 17% and 24% THC and a blend of terpenes such as caryophyllene, pinene, and myrcene. These compounds may promote feelings of relaxation, euphoria, and happiness, as well as heavy sedative effects if using higher doses.

Sleepy. High levels of THC and the presence of the sedating terpene myrcene may guarantee a good night’s sleep.

Hungry. THC is renowned as an appetite stimulant through its ability to increase the “hunger hormone,” ghrelin

Happy. THC may promote happiness, likely by promoting the release of dopamine

Stress. Myrcene has been hailed as a stress reliever in some studies. THC may be a stress-buster in low doses

Pain.  Along with the pain-relieving potential of THC, the terpenes caryophyllene, pinene, and myrcene have demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties and may help with pain relief.

Anxiety. THC may promote anti-anxiety effects in small doses, and terpenes like myrcene and caryophyllene may offer anxiety relief. 

Blueberry Strain Dosage Recommendations

Pay attention to the THC content of your Blueberry strain because if it’s higher than 20%, it might cause more sedation or, in some cases, paranoia. Start with 1-3 puffs and wait for 15 to 30 minutes before deciding to smoke more. 

The right dosage can vary greatly from one user to the next. If you have questions about finding the right dosage or product type for your needs, consider consulting with a medical cannabis doctor, or you can request a consultation with NuggMD’s Cannabis Concierge.
