Blueberry was the beginning of a beautiful trend in cannabis hybridisation. It all began stateside back in the day; somewhere in California, sometime during the 70’s with the crossing of diverse landrace genetics. It took three pedigree strains and decades of highly selective breeding to bring about the Blueberry we all know and love today. Highland Thai, Purple Thai and Afghani genetics had never before been mixed.
This was not just the genesis of the Blue family, it was a huge leap forward for indoor growers everywhere. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s, sativa plants were ruthlessly hybridised with indica breeding stock. Unfortunately, the price of the rapid advancement of indoor cultivation was the loss of pure sativa strains. The success of indica-sativa hybrids changed cannabis culture permanently.
A sweet, fruity, blueberry aroma and flavour has made Blueberry a cannabis iconoclast. Her growth characteristics are that of a “stretch indica.” Her buds are dense and frosty, however, internodal spacing can be quite elongated during bloom. She will produce an abundance of tight flower clusters, rather than looser, long-running colas.
Without question, it’s her unique terpene profile that comprises Blueberry’s claim to fame. Other attributes include a penchant to develop purple/blue colour tones in cooler temperatures, as well as her delicious, relaxing, long-lasting, not-quite-couchlocking body stone effect. Thus, Blueberry is must-have marijuana for pro breeders as well as ordinary, decent home growers everywhere. Let’s check out a handful of beans RQS have infused with gooey Blueberry goodness.
