Odor and Flavors
As alluded to earlier, the influence of both the parent strains is evident. Its buds emit the scent of blueberry and fuel that becomes pungent once these nugs are broken.

The effects of this Indica dominant strain starts off with a slight pressure around the eyes and temple. It then delivers a stimulus that makes users feel uplifted. It continues to intensify which in turn lets users feel happy and euphoric. Blueberry Diesel also seems to heighten sensitivity as users have the perception of being more in touch with their surroundings. The gentle cerebral high can unlock the creativity of people resulting in free-flowing ideas.
In most cases, users of Blueberry Diesel do not only feel cheerful but also sociable. As such, anti-socials who want to loosen up may find its use helpful.
Meanwhile, the Indica traits creep into the body. As such, tension is reduced in muscles making the users feel at ease. It delivers a relaxation that is just right for those who seek tranquility without being overwhelmed.
Generally, people find the effects of Blueberry Diesel gentle and soothing. It induces mental clarity and boosts the morale before finally putting one at ease.
Even though the strain delivers mild effects, it does not mean that there are no adverse reactions. Like others, it causes people to have dry mouth and eyes.
In several tests, it is shown that the strain has around 14% to 23% THC content. It means that even on the low side, this is still a potent strain, one that is above average. As such, there is a chance that some people may overuse. When that happens, there are other possible side effects. One is feeling a bit dizzy. Another is getting paranoid.
At any rate, these unwanted reactions are temporary and do not cause harm. But they can be annoying depending on the severity. As a rule, the symptoms become more pronounced as users use more.
Medical Use and Benefits
Blueberry Diesel has less than 1% CBD. Because of that, it has no benefit for epileptics and patients with seizures. However, it still has other medical uses.
Among the top reasons why medical cannabis users choose Blueberry Diesel is its ability to reduce stress. Mostly, it is due to the combined effects of the Sativa and Indica sides. Putting people in a state of relaxation even as it uplifts the spirit, it also becomes useful for people with depression and other mental disorders including depression and anxiety. A side benefit of feeling at ease is that somehow, it may also act as a pain reliever for mild cases.
As the effects of the strain subside, most people tend to feel hungry. It is especially helpful for those who need to stimulate their appetite. For most, it is easy to get up and find food. However, should one fall asleep, then expect to wake up feeling like not having eaten in a over a week.
Growing Blueberry Diesel
A little prior experience in planting cannabis comes in handy when cultivating Blueberry Diesel. It produces dense buds covered with thin hairs and trichome. Unfortunately, the plant is clone-only at this time. For those fortunate enough to obtain some clippings, they can choose to grow it indoors or outdoors. In either environment, it should thrive well.
Although beginners can cultivate this plant successfully, there is quite a bit of work and learning curve.
To plant it indoors, growers will want to plan for Low-Stress Training (LST). That is because the stems need support due to the heavy buds it produces. Flowering period is in 8 to 9 weeks when properly taken care of, and yields per square meter are around 450 grams.
Outdoors, the strain prefers a warm climate. Out in the garden or the backyard, it can reach as high as 6 feet. Its vegetative stage is a little bit quicker than many others as flowering occurs in the last days of September. Under the care of seasoned growers, it can produce as much as 600 grams of buds.
