Dream Queen Strain Review
In some countries, typhoons are named after women because of their finicky or temperamental attitude. However, in naming cannabis, it is a different story. Dream Queen, in particular, brings light to anyone who smokes it.
This queen comes from Southern California and is noted for its very inviting aroma and lip-smacking taste. A cross between two Sativa plants, Blue Dream and Space Queen, the offspring also inherited its Sativa dominance.
Blue Dream achieved its legendary status on the West Coast for its balanced body and cerebral high. Space Queen, on the other hand, is famous for the fruity aroma and trippy spell. As such, in inheriting the traits of its prominent parents, one can say that the offspring Dream Queen offers users the best of both worlds.
