Strain Overview: Blue Dream is a hybrid cross between Blueberry and Haze. It is deemed the most popular cannabis strain based on reviews and widespread availability. Blue Dream’s popularity stems primarily from its sweet berry fragrance and even-keel effects that entice both connoisseurs and first-time consumers.
Grow Techniques: Sativa-dominant genetics ensure that Blue Dream will grow tall. With proper pruning and training, this plant will grow beautifully and easily. Give Blue Dream plenty of trellis support as the sativa structure has a hard time supporting heavier indica-like buds.

Indoor/Outdoor: Can be grown successfully both indoors and out. Blue Dream is best known for its successful growth outdoors in California, but transitions easily into indoor environments. Consider topping and training to prevent Blue Dream from outgrowing your indoor space.
