Blueberry Kush is as luscious as it sounds and is indeed a treat for cannabis users. At up to an insane 24% THC, it is a very potent Indica strain.
Bred in Oregon by Kush Seeds, Blueberry Kush is an offspring of two well-loved strains. In fact, its name is a combination of the predecessors Blueberry and OG Kush.
No doubt the anticipation of using it especially for the first time must be excruciatingly exciting at the prospect of taking a hit from an incredibly powerful strain. With up to 24% THC, it is a heavy-hitting Indica strain that is perfect for evening use.
Besides its sheer potency, perhaps the more compelling reason for using it is because of its parents. First, the Blueberry. It is arguably the best smelling hybrids of all time. Having been around for over 40 years, it is also widely recognized for its relaxing effects.
OG Kush, on the other hand, is considered as the backbone of many others on the Western Coast of the United States. Among its most notable traits is its ability to crush stress by providing a euphoric head high.
The popularity of these two strains is such that it is a sin for cannabis aficionados not to have heard of them.
Naturally, in coming across Blueberry Kush for the first time, there is a lot of expectations among its first-time users. To that end, it certainly does not disappoint.

Odor and Flavors
“Sugary sweet and everything nice,” that is what many people think of the strain. Like Blueberry, it has a very distinct berry scent that makes it irresistible. Upon smoking, it also has a mild lemony taste that lingers on during the exhale.
Blueberry Kush is an Indica strain, but its early effects are more cerebral and are likely to surprise more than a few people. It begins by inducing a euphoric rush that is not only uplifting but allows a sense of happiness to set in. Often, this may also be accompanied by a mild boost in energy.
However, as the physical effects creep into the body, users tend to feel relaxed. As mentioned earlier, this is a potent strain. The body high it delivers continues to intensify, but the beauty of it is that it does not cause the mind to feel all too foggy. Soon enough, it leaves users in deep relaxation.
Unfortunately, Blueberry Kush is as much typical cannabis as it is a unique hybrid in the sense that it comes with adverse effects. Hence, users can expect to experience some degree of dry mouth and eyes. At the same time, it is also possible that a few may also have a mild headache or feel dizzy.
One thing to note is that it may also cause some people to feel paranoid. Often, this is a result of taking a huge hit or using excessively.
Medical Use and Benefits
Besides recreational use, Blueberry Kush can also provide comfort to patients. There are several benefits and among them are:
1. Pain Relief. It has compounds that soothe aching muscles. The same properties that induce relaxation are also the ones that help alleviate the symptoms of pain.
2. Like OG Kush, Blueberry Kush can melt away stress by delivering an uplifting high. Furthermore, because it enhances the mood, people with depression may benefit with its use.
3. Used in moderation, its psychoactive traits that deliver the high everyone craves for can also boost the appetite. If this is the purpose of using Blueberry Kush, then the key is knowing the exact amount needed so that its physical effects are not overwhelming in that it leaves people on a couch-lock and unlikely to get up and eat.
4. Finally, the reason why it is an excellent nighttime strain is that more often than not, users fall asleep before its effects have subsided. Insomniacs might as well refer to this hybrid as their best friend.
Growing Blueberry Kush
So much has been said about the incredible effects and fragrance of Blueberry Kush. But that is not the end of it. It is also a beautiful plant with dark leaves that produces stout buds with thin red hairs and has excellent coverage of trichomes. Outdoors, it may reach 150 cm but growers can keep it short indoors by topping it early.
Indoors, Blueberry Kush grows best in hydroponics set up. Besides keeping the temperature at 20 to 27 degrees Celsius, monitor the humidity level to prevent molds and mildew from forming. Aside from that, clearing out some branches promotes airflow. It has a flowering period of 8 to 10 weeks and may produce up to 450 grams of buds per square meter.
It is also possible to grow this cannabis outdoors but in a dry, fall climate. Blueberry Kush is a picky eater so make sure to feed it with large amounts of nitrogen, calcium, and magnesium. It flowers in late September to early November, and each plant can produce up to 650 grams.
