Coasting with the motion of the ocean, Blue Hawaiian takes the mind and body to what feels like a Hawaiian roller coaster ride. While the mind surfs on waves of energy, the body floats in utter relaxation. Indeed, users will only need a bowl of this ganja in order to feel the luxury of paradise.
Blue Hawaiian follows the footprints of Jordan of the Islands from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The breeders themselves even hinted at the coastal vibe of its lineage.
It got its head-centered high from Hawaiian, an upbeat landrace that floods the mind with euphoria while keeping the flow of ideas clear and sharp. Additionally, it adds a tangy freshness to the palate.
Meanwhile, other than its sweet and sour flavors, Blueberry draws users in with its easygoing and mildly sedating qualities. Such a combination of soothing and simulating high results in a hybrid that provides the ultimate tropical getaway trip with just one or two tokes.

Odor and Flavors
Blue Hawaiian captures the essence of the perfect beach day – warm sand, and the aroma of citrus and sea mist mingling in the air. Moreover, a delightful addition of blueberries rounds it out with mature and bittersweet notes. Indeed, it is one of the most delightful aromas among its lineage.
Meanwhile, its flavors are just as refreshing as it smells. There is a spicy kick upon inhaling, and some hints of deep earthiness at the base. It smoothly swirls in the lungs, and notably leaves a subtle wood and pinecone aftertaste.
As mentioned above, this strain rolls in the fantasy of the sunny pacific life in one joint. While it is not Hawaii – it provides the next best thing: bright-lit moods complemented by a warm tingle that gradually spreads all over the body.
The high creeps in slowly, allowing users some time to prepare for what soon comes. After all, it can take off in whichever way one wants – a low-key productive afternoon, zoning out chilling songs or movies on Spotify or Netflix.
Either way, the mind becomes as clear even as the ocean and waves of euphoria come rushing in. As such, spirits are lifted and energized. Ideas freely pop into the mind, and users are motivated to put most of it to action.
The tango between this mentally invigorating and physically calming sensation can often times cascade into a psychedelic trip where users experience visual and auditory distortions. Thus, it is best used as an afternoon pick-me-up.
As with the case of many cannabis varieties, symptoms of cotton mouth as well as dry eyes are common and persisting reactions. However, veterans and even beginners alike could go through the slight discomfort by drinking water.
Cases of dizziness and anxiety are rare even to those who have an especially low tolerance to potent THC effects. A few complaints of headaches and mild paranoia slips in, now and then, but even that is uncommon. Still, users should always start with low dosages when smoking out.
Medical Use and Benefits
Blue Hawaiian does not have an extraordinary CBD level, but its efficiency in blunting stress is remarkable. Not only does it uplift the spirit, it also provides just enough energy motivate users in accomplishing small-scale tasks such as personal projects, household chores and other office errands.
The ability to offer a reprieve from stress and anxiety is also a valuable quality that aids in managing depression. It allows users to concentrate and build a better quality of life by freeing the mind from worries.
Additionally, with a THC reaching as high as 20%, its analgesic features are strong and can effectively comfort those who are in constant pain. Furthermore, it also stokes hunger for those who may have lost their appetite to illnesses or treatments (such as chemotherapy).
While the high is mentally bracing, if taken in high enough doses, the strain can bring about deep and restful sleep even for the hardiest insomniacs.
Growing Blue Hawaiian
Obtaining a clipping for the purpose of cultivating this plant is not necessary. Seeds, at the moment, are readily available online.
Blue Hawaiian is not a particularly finicky plant, but it still requires quite a bit of green thumb for it to thrive to its full potential.
On that note, it can flourish well in either an indoor or outdoor setup. However, since it grows at a rather medium to tall height of 180 cm, cultivating it indoors would require trimming and pruning in the early stages to encourage bud growth.
It has an indoor flowering time of 9 to 10 weeks before producing a yield of 450 to 550 grams per square meter.
Those who are looking to coax out its vibrant tinges of purple and blue hues should shock the plants by exposing them to cold temperatures before the flowering stage. Usually, it would be around 10 degrees lower than what it is accustomed to during the vegetative phase.
Meanwhile, growing it outdoors requires a Mediterranean climate. The harvest time should fall on the latter part of October. Each plant has the potential to produce as much as 680 grams of flowers.
