A little over a year ago, I received my medical marijuana recommendation for my joint pain. I wanted to maximize my pain relief, so I looked for the best strains to relieve this particular pain.
The first strain recommended was Blue Dream, one of the best known strains of cannabis. Over the past year I have tried many different strains but always come back to Blue Dream.
Blue Dream is a classic hybrid strain between Blueberry and Haze. It’s been a California favorite for a long time; whether it’s the medical applications or the long, intense high, Blue Dream never disappoints. In the same way wine drinkers differentiate between Chardonnay varieties, it’s always nice to find a pharmacy or delivery service that has Blue Dream that fits your needs.
In my case, that’s the organic outdoor Blue Dream available from the Patio Wellness delivery service. Closing the deal was the amazing value: Patio offers an eighth of Blue Dream for $35 (or a quarter for $50).
This strain from Blue Dream has become my absolute favorite. It is surprisingly good quality for such a low price. The high is social, extremely relaxing and provides pain relief. However, it can also make you very sleepy and unmotivated (whether you see that as positive or negative is up to interpretation).
After the first blow, you get what I like to call the “tinglies” – a wave of sensation that flows through your body, coming out from your lungs, making all the hair on your body stand up and give you goosebumps. Usually I only need a small container before half-on a Netflix binge or laughing uncontrollably with friends.
If I smoke a second bowl I’ll be asleep in bed 20 minutes later, so watch out! The high usually lasts about two hours with an hour of a hazy comedown, leaving you constantly wondering if you are actually still high.
Appearance: Large, dense, slightly icy green buds with dark purple highlights.
Effects: Social, cheerful, pain relief, stress relief, fatigue and loss of motivation.
Flavour: Strong, penetrating earthy scent with notes of sweet blueberry.
Taste: Mostly earthy, sweet and berry.

General impression: Because of its amazing long lasting high, Blue Dream is one of my favorite strains that I always seem to find my way back to.
