Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 80% Sativa / 20% Indica
THC: 21% – 28%, CBD: 4%
Lucid Dream is a sativa dominant hybrid (80% sativa/20% indica) strain created as a cross between the infamous Amnesia Haze X Blue Dream strains. This bud is infamous for its ability to catapult you into a state of actual lucid dreaming with its powerful THC level of up to 21-28% and energetic combination of effects. Almost immediately after toking you’ll feel an energetic buzz that starts in the back of the head and neck before jolting through your entire head, leaving you insanely uplifted and motivated with a sense of focus that can power you through anything that comes your way throughout the day. As the high continues you may be hit with a sense of slight sedation that leaves you dreamy and lucid, lost in your own thoughts and imagination. Because of these powerful effects, Lucid Dream is perfect for treating chronic pain, chronic stress or anxiety, migraines or headaches, and nausea. This bud has a delicious hazy aroma of freshly picked earth-covered blueberries and a flavor of sweet blueberry with a touch of earthy haze upon exhale. These buds have large oversized arrowhead-shaped light minty green nugs with fiery orange hairs and a frosty layer of sugary crystal white trichomes.
Lucid Dream has small to medium-sized flowers than range in shape from roughly circular to tapered and almost conical. The leaves which are densely packed in an indica-typical formation are a pale shade of olive green. In some cases, the flowers also boast patches of dark purple, almost to the exclusion of green; this is the result of a process similar to the changing of foliage in autumn, in which the plant’s pigments are excited by cold weather during the growing process. Finally, icy white trichomes dot these flowers, accounting for their potency and giving them a very sticky texture.
If properly cured, Lucid Dream has all the fruity pungency of Blue Dream. An unmistakable blueberry scent wafts up from the flowers, accented by an earthy funk. On closer inspection, there’s also a slightly tropical aroma, redolent of pineapple. When burnt in a pipe or a joint, the bud gives off a smooth, easily palatable smoke. On the exhale, this smoke has an herbal flavor that may be familiar to those used to smoking Haze variants. Notably, despite its striking purple color, Lucid Dream does any discernible grape flavor — this is because the pigments that determine the bud’s color do not have a corresponding effect on its taste.
As with many other sativa hybrids, Lucid Dream has a high that hits quickly. Almost immediately, users report a floaty, psychedelic experience characterized by strong sensory distortion and a feeling of time dilation. Such qualities make this strain a great way to enhance an otherwise low-key day. Despite its dreamy character, though, the high is given an edge by the presence of Amnesia Haze. Shortly after adjusting to this strain’s relaxing properties, smokers may detect an increase in cerebral thinking; this makes Lucid Dream great for work productivity, whether the work in question is analytical and no-nonsense or creative and freewheeling. Alternatively, this euphoric bud may set the stage for some passive relaxation and introspection. In any case, smokers shouldn’t expect a burst of energy although Lucid Dream is great for mentally engaging tasks, it’s not well suited to intense physical activities. Trying to get around under this strain’s influence is akin to walking through peanut butter. Because of its versatile effects, Lucid Dream is appropriate for use at any time of day, provided that no physical exertion is on the agenda.
Lucid Dream can also have wide-ranging effects for medical cannabis patients. It can temporarily dull the troubling symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. It can also keep those with attention deficit disorders calm and focused enough to work on a single task. Physiologically, this strain can soothe aches and pains, whether serious and chronic or temporary. Although it’s mostly calming, Lucid Dream should be consumed with moderation by those who are prone to panic, since its onset may lead to some mindrace.
No commercial breeders have made seeds of Lucid Dream available for sale online. As such, home growers must obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants in order to cultivate genetically identical “clones.” The strain can be grown indoors or out, although success outdoors depends on a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Those looking to bring out the bold purple streaks associated with this bud should briefly expose their plants to nighttime temperatures 10 to 15 degrees colder than average. Lucid Dream flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors.
This mystical bud is a must-try for sativa and indica fans alike. Its unique mix of mellow dreaminess and mental acuity sets it apart from other boutique hybrids.
