Blueberry, also known as “Berry Blue,” is an indica-dominant strain comprised of 80% indica and 20% sativa created by breeder DJ Short in the 1970s. He began crossbreeding landrace strains that developed in the wild without human interference. He crossed an Afghani indica with a Highland Thai sativa and Purple Thai sativa, yielding the hybrid strain aptly named for its fresh blueberry fragrance and taste and bright blue hues in its leaves and buds.
It’s also a very potent strain with a THC content of between 16% and 23.5% and a CBD level of around 0.26%. Blueberry is noted for its ability to combat anxiety and stress, facilitate calmness and ease restlessness. Blueberry is an ideal strain for managing chronic pain and insomnia, and some have claimed that Blueberry is arousing as well.
It is one of the most popular strains on the market, and in 2000 Blueberry won the High Times Cannabis Cup in the Best Indica and Best Overall strain categories. It received third place in the Overall category in 2001.
