Blue Iguana

Blue Iguana is a strain (cultivar) developed by Mosca Seeds and is the result of a cross between Double Dutch and Old Time Moonshine (OTM). Blue Iguana is an indica-sativa hybrid strain, with some claiming it is a sativa-dominant cultivar. However, the Mosca Seeds website states that Blue Iguana is indica-dominant. Both Double Dutch and OTM are indica-leaning with plenty of sativa influence, so it is not uncommon to see Blue Iguana labeled “sativa.” There is also another version called “Ark Blue Iguana,” which is a different variety of cannabis and is thought to be sativa-dominant. There is little specific information on the sativa and indica percentages of Blue Iguana. Still, it seems to be a relatively balanced hybrid of indica and sativa with a slight tendency towards indica.

Blue Iguana is a THC-dominant variety of cannabis. However, the THC content is considered relatively moderate. CBD, CBC, CBN, CBG, and THCV are present in Blue Iguana in small concentrations. This unique mixture of cannabinoids paired with its moderate THC content could be why Blue Iguana is often reported as having both relaxing and uplifting effects.

Blue Iguana has been described as having relaxing, sleepy, and giggly, talkative effects. Blue Iguana may help manage stress, anxiety, and depression. Blue Iguana has flavors of blueberry, butter, spice, ammonia, musky, skunky, and earthy aromas.
