Double Dream Strain Review
There are not many families of cannabis that have had the same success as Blueberry and Haze. For decades, breeders from all over had been using these two legends in developing new hybrids. It is not surprising then that someone did cross these two to create Blue Dream. Not only does it possess an incredible aroma, but it is also a favorite within the medical cannabis community.
Blue Dream, itself, is a legend in the cannabis scene on the West Coast of the United States. Like its predecessors, breeders also used it develop other strains. Oaksterdam Seed Company, for instance, crossed it with Stardawg to produce Dream Star.
Sometime after the release of Dream Star, an unknown breeder crossed it with Blue Dream. In a sense, one can say that the unidentified breeder backcrossed a part of it to one of its parent strain. Weird as it sounds, but that is how it works in the plant kingdom. As a result, Double Dream was born.
In some ways, it is a much-improved version of Blue Dream. Not to mention, it is also more economical. At one time or the other, Blue Dream had a market value of $4,000 per pound!
Double Dream, a mostly Sativa strain delivers a vivid yet dreamy mental high coupled with body relaxation.

Once it kicks in, users feel a gentle head buzz that spreads down the neck and to the body. It results in the users feeling uplifted and happy.
