To many, the word ‘blue god’ is reminiscent of the cerulean-skinned Hindu deity Khrisna who upholds the cosmic order. However, there is another supreme being whose blue pigment is recognized by cannabis enthusiasts all over the world.
Blue God is a pure Indica with a fruity punch. Though strong enough to knock users out, it rewards do-gooders that use it in moderation by removing tension from all over the body. Favored by people who crave deep relaxation, its soothing buzz is deliverance to prayers of a sedating nightcap.
Unlike Vishnu’s eighth avatar, Blue God did not gain its cobalt hue from poison. Instead, it is an inheritance from the all-powerful Blueberry along with other gifts such as its body numbing, stress-crushing ability. The modern staple is also the child of another iconic Indica-dominant strain, God Bud. From it, the modern staple received its divine uplifting genes.
One can truly say Blue God has a blessed gene pool. It is evident in how its fruity flavors elegantly swarm mouth once its velvet smoke is drawn in. Meanwhile, its purely therapeutic West Coast touch heals the body from plagues that have caused it pain while delighting the mind.

Odor and Flavors
As if standing in the middle of a blossoming fruit garden, senses come to life with a whiff of its fruity berry scent. Once lit, Blue God produces an even more tantalizing aroma of ripe blueberries.
Like a satisfying smoothie, it also has hints of sweet and creamy vanilla. Then, on the exhale, it leaves behind a woody flavor that can be savored for several minutes after each puff.
For people craving for a good night’s sleep after a hectic day, Blue God is a classic choice. Having the reputation of “one-hit-and-quit” strain, a small bowl is enough to bring out the full force of its tranquilizing power. And, users who smoke beyond the recommended amount will face the consequence of a couch-lock.
A wonderful pre-slumber experience, its initial potent takes people on a journey to cloud nine. In the optimism is a euphoria that wipes out tension in gentle motions while clearing the mind of negativity. It leaves users feeling cheery and upbeat, as happy memories play like a montage.
It is best to have some snacks ahead of time as the subtle mental stimulation can be quite hunger-inducing. Preferably, food should be placed nearby at arm’s length before the head-to-toe wave of relaxation overcomes the body. Otherwise, one will have to endure the cravings through sleep.
Not a moment later, a sense of heaviness weighs down on the limbs while a soothing buzz kneads the muscles into a soft mush. Slight movements are possible, but are difficult to do altogether due to the all-encompassing Indica high. Instead, most would prefer to relish the heavenly calm while comfortably lounged on the sofa or bed.
An hour or two after the first toke, the eyelids start to feel a ton heavier. Yawning and stretching the loose muscles, users lay in bed in complete comfort before embracing the sweetest of dreams. Obviously, it is not the strain to use when one needs to stay productive as it would rather cast Mr. Sandman’s spell on users.
Challenging Blue God’s potency is never a good idea. After all, the pure Indica is not one to hold back on its punishments. It induces dizziness or a headache that, at times, will develop into a subtle but overwhelming feeling of paranoia. Still, the god is kind in that many of its effects only last for hours. It is better to keep dosages low though.
Like all good things, Blue God’s gift comes with an equivalent exchange. Users will experience mild dryness in the eyes and the mouth. Though it usually goes away on its own and is easily ignored, it can be discomforting to beginners. As such, it is best to stay hydrated.
Medical Use and Benefits
Able to relieve the body and mind of its daily burdens, Blue God is a gifted Indica with therapeutic benefits that are highly valuable in the medical cannabis scene. Its subtle, trance-like buzz as well as encompassing calm quickly provides patients with a reprieve. And, once it hits, the feeling is similar to walking through the gates of heaven where people are worlds away from stress.
This notable uplift is helpful to patients battling depression, stress, PTSD, and other mental health issues with depressive component. It grants a night of optimism where sufferers can let go of the negativities that weigh the mind down. The momentary bliss and good sleep that it gives also affects how one wakes up the next morning. With this herb, a refreshing and well-rested vibe readies one for the day even before getting out of bed.
The highlight of its therapeutic prowess, however, are its muscle-relaxing and powerful painkilling compounds. When activated, it provides temporary relief to pains and aches caused by a myriad of issues including arthritis, fatigue, and nerve damage. At the same time, it reduces redness and swelling in inflamed areas.
Freed of mental and physical inhibition, sleeping becomes a quicker process with users feeling the eyes droop. Eventually, one falls into a deep, unencumbered slumber.
Growing Blue God
Blue God, just like its parents, is a stunning plant. Bushy and branchy, its thick foliage displays a wild range of colors as it matures. Mostly coming with green and yellow leaves, baring the herb in cold temperature before the flowering period gives it tints of purple, pink, and blue.
On closer inspection, its dense, tight nugs captivate the eyes with a glaze of crystals. Its thick resin and sticky trichomes are, in fact, a proof of its potency. Further embellishing what are already beautiful looking buds are its curly amber pistils.
The enchanting shrub is somewhat fluffy due to an abundant amount of leaves. It will need some pruning and trimming especially when cultivating the strain outdoors, where it can reach a height of 366 cm. Indoors, it stays pretty manageable. Still, the top must be thinned down so lower leafage have ample air and light.
Blue God shines the most in places with a subtropical or tropical climate. In such an optimal location, it can share up to 500 grams of multi-colored buds per plant come harvest-time around the middle of October. This does not mean that the beauty would not flourish in colder areas, though. Because of its Afghani root, it will do just fine if planted in a spot with access to ample sunshine and gentle winds.
In places where the outdoor weather is not ideal, indoor cultivation is a better option. Growers do have to decide on the medium. Soil produces better flavor profiles while hydroponics allows for higher growth rate. Typically, the flowering period lasts 7 to 9 weeks with a potential harvest of up to 400 to 500 grams of fresh buds per square meter especially when employing a Screen of Green setup.
