Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 15% – 19%, CBD: 1%
Blueberry Pie is an evenly balanced hybrid (50% indica/50% sativa) strain created through a cross of the classic Girl Scout Cookies X Blue Dream strains. With a powerful 15-19% THC level and dreamy relaxing effects, you’ll be hooked after just one toke of this delicious bud. The Blueberry Pie high starts with a cerebral boost of euphoric energy felt a few minutes upon exhale. This happy effect builds and builds, infusing you with a feeling of hazy introspection that lulls your mind and body down into a deeply relaxed state. Your energy level will ebb and flow in this state, leaving you rolling through uplifted energy and calming sedation. Thanks to these long-lasting effects, Blueberry Pie is often chosen to treat conditions such as chronic stress, insomnia, depression, chronic pain, and fatigue. The Blueberry Pie flavor is exactly what the name suggests – sweet berries and earth with a touch of vanilla and nuttiness. The smell takes on a spicier earthier tinge with a sweet pungent berry effect that’s released as the nugs are broken apart. This bud has lumpy piecey forest green nugs with rich amber hairs and a coating of tiny amber crystal trichomes.
Blueberry Pie is distinguished by medium-sized, spade-shaped nuggets. The flowers hold the tight bud structure that is so typical of indica strains, with compact, tightly-coiled leaves and a dense weightiness. The flowers themselves are an earthy brownish-green with yellow pistils. Some phenotypes may show off vibrant shades of purple, a color passed on from grandparent strain Blueberry that is caused by large concentrations of pigments called anthocyanins that trigger blue and purple hues when exposed to cold temperatures during the growing process. Also passed on from the Blueberry and Blue Dream strains is the unmistakable scent of fresh blueberries, a fruity tang that jumps off of the dried buds. Some dank and musty notes hang underneath this sweetness and speak to the funky Kush legacy, passed on from Girl Scout Cookies. When combusted, Blueberry Pie has a smoke that is thick and lung-expanding but smooth. On the exhale, this smoke has a lingering flavor of overripe fruit, sweet and skunky at the same time. This terpene-heavy strain is known to be particularly pungent, and smokers looking to keep their consumption discreet should take any necessary precautions.
The high from Blueberry Pie sets in quickly and begins as a headrush — before they’ve even finished savoring this strain’s taste, users may feel a growing pressure behind the eyes and around the temples, accompanied by a marked increase in thoughtfulness. A sharpened perception of smokers’ surroundings can manifest with trippy and psychedelic sensations like visual distortions or intensifications of sounds. As users find their brains pushed into a stimulated, free-associative mode, they may also feel more chatty or giggly. As the high wears on, however, Blueberry Pie’s cerebral high is grounded out by a powerful body stone. Heavy limbs and a tingling sensation may make users want to sit down if they’re not already doing so. A calm (but still clearheaded) mindset takes over, creating feelings of relaxation and contentment. Blueberry Pie’s high can be channeled into whatever pursuit users prefer — it can provide daytime motivation to accomplish a lengthy to-do list, or can creative the perfect environment for creative thinking or problem solving.
Blueberry Pie also has several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its holistic, all-over buzz can be a great way for those suffering from depression, anxiety, or PTSD to gain a new perspective and temporarily live “in the moment.” Its sense of focus can also be beneficial for those with attention deficit disorders. Physical effects include relief from aches and pains — whether incidental and caused by injury or chronic and nerve-related, due to disease. In high enough doses, Blueberry Pie can also be an effective insomnia treatment.
Seeds of this relatively uncommon strain are not available for commercial sale. Those looking to grow Blueberry Pie at home must obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants which can then be grown as genetically identical “clones.” If growers are lucky enough to get their hands on some clones, Blueberry Pie can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation always requires a warm, semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures in the 70s. Those looking to bring out this strain’s colorful purple highlights should also “shock” plants by exposing them to colder than average temperatures at night, just before flowering. Although limited information is available on cultivation of Blueberry Pie, we know that its Blue Dream and GSC parent strains flower after a long 9 to 10 weeks. Both parent strains also offer a solid yield of about 2 ounces per plant, perhaps providing some indication of what Blueberry Pie growers can expect.
An ideal wake-and-bake strain or simply a great way to pass a lazy night at home, Blueberry Pie imparts a comfortable glow with its well-balanced high. With excellent genetics from two very popular parent strains, it stands to gain even more popularity beyond its current fan base.
