Odor and Flavors
Enticing as it can be, and why not as Blue Haze is a sweet and delightful treat for the nostrils. It is like setting foot on the edge of a forest with a lot of blueberries that fill the air with its fruity and earthy aroma.

Feeling reinvigorated, Blue Haze provides the inspiration for the flow of creative ideas. Used in moderation, its users can be productive and complete tasks after tasks effortlessly. However, it is also possible that some users may use a little bit too much. In that case, the buzzing high may prove to be a bit overbearing.
Here is where the Blueberry heritage comes in handy. Besides captivating odor and body relaxation, the Indica trait it passed on serves as an anchor for which to keep the mental buzz from becoming too extreme.
Blue Haze is a strain that is good for beginners in the sense that it is not likely to become overwhelming. However, it also has its adverse effects. For example, having dry mouth and eyes are inevitable.

Pain, inflammation and muscle spasms may be reduced with the use of this cannabis hybrid. Working behind the scenes, the smaller Indica side of Blue Haze is also weaving its magic in that it soothes aching muscles.
Growing Blue Haze
Although it is Sativa-dominant, Blue Haze has an Indica structure. In fact, cultivators love the fact that it has a quick flowering period. It also does not exceed 150cm. The dense buds it produces are bright green with orange pistils and covered with frosty crystals.
Unfortunately for the beginners, the plant is delicate and finicky. Because of that, growers will need to monitor it closely. Any deviation may result in a less-than-stellar yield or quality. Compounding the difficulty of cultivating it is that it is susceptible to molds.
Under expert care, though, Blue Haze will reward growers with an abundant yield. It has a flowering period of 8 to 9 weeks if grown indoors. Each square meter can produce between 400 to 600 grams per square meter.
Outdoors, it thrives in a warm climate. Growers can expect to harvest by the end of October with each plant producing anywhere from 450 to 600 grams of buds.
