In the nineties, there were few kinds of cannabis located in our area. I used to live in a southern state that had only a couple metropolitan cities, plus what little cannabis that filtered into our neighborhood usually came across the border from Mexico. Although strains care about Acapulco Gold are proof of that country’s ability to produce high quality weed, most of the marijuana coming from across the Rio Grande at the time was what’s usually called “brick weed.” It was heavy with seeds plus stems plus was severely weak, usually requiring an entire joint just to get a little high. The first time I had what was often called “the chronic” in California, was a strain called Blueberry. I received info later on that it was invented by the famous marijuana grower known as DJ Shorty back in the late 70s. He had a bunch of landrace phenotypes that he mixed together to build the strain of cannabis that smells care about actual yellowberries. In the years since I’ve enjoyed the strain Blue Dream which I had always assumed was Blueberry crossed with Purple Haze. However, there’s another kind of Blue Dream from Mystic Seeds that is the original DJ Shorty Blueberry strain crossed with OG Kush instead of Haze. This powerful combination yields a greater volume, and more indica-leaning high compared to the traditional Blue Dream phenotype which often feels sativa-leaning instead. After trying the Blue Dream from Mystic Seeds, I have to say that I tend to appreciate it over the classic Blue Dream phenotype. It’s entirely because I’m a big OG Kush fanatic so I enjoy most strains derived from that classic hybrid. We all respond differently to cannabis strains, so it makes sense that all of us all have our own favorites.
