This strain unfortunately doesn’t have any blueberries in it, although there are reports that the sweet taste of it comes across as berries in general, and blueberries in particular. Made in Oregon, this strain is a hybrid between Blueberry, and OG Kush, and it is dominant in Indica, which means that it is preferred by people who are in pain or need to relax. Rather than having an immediate high, Blueberry Kush is known for slowly bringing on a heaviness which pervades the user’s entire body – because of this, it is recommended that people only use this strain in the evening, or immediately before they go to bed. Blueberry Kush is a difficult strain to grow, but when it is done properly, it is a medium sized bush that has a very high yield. Growing time is around seven to nine weeks in a controlled environment.
Since Blueberry Kush is a strain which is high in indica, then it is suited for people with pain and anxiety. Negative side-effects include a dry mouth and eyes, but this strain is very low on giving people paranoia, so it isn’t surprising that one of the main medical uses for it is to help reduce stress. Pain is the other major medical usage, as this strain is very good for promoting happiness and a feeling of relaxation overall. Interestingly, since this strain promotes hunger, it is often used as a medical choice to treat an appetite which is bad or suppressed.
