The idea of Buddha tends to impart thoughts of relaxation and peace, and Blue Buddha eventually gives you that after taking you on a bit of a ride first. Unknown breeders have crossed Oregon Blueberry with Buddha's Sister to create an indica-dominant strain that's full of flavor and rife with strong effects.
THC levels in this strain are just right for both new and experienced smokers with an average of 22%. Nugs are neon green with hairs that range from amber to blue, lending themselves to her name, and a decent coating of sticky trichomes. Buds end up feeling rather heavy and dense, letting you know that you're in for a treat. Both flavors and aromas are sweet and savory with blueberry, earth, and spice mingling together for a super pleasing experience.
Prepare for a true rollercoaster with this hybrid, as you'll initially feel a burst of euphoric energy that clears your mind and lifts you up into a place of zen. Socialization and creativity are heightened dramatically, making this strain a great choice if you have projects to complete. Be sure to plan your high accordingly, however, because what goes up must come down. Blue Buddha includes a deep relaxation on the back end, so deep in fact that you'll be glued to your couch. Your mental state of bliss remains the same, but you might have a hard time remembering your name.
Blue Buddha is an ideal choice for medical patients who need a little pick me up during the latter portion of their day. Depression and stress are banished right off the bat, and as you begin to feel her energetic effects, all thoughts of fatigue go straight out the window. Issues of pain including headaches and cramps can also be soothed by this bud, and full relief will typically be realized during the comedown. Some note that this strain causes the munchies as well, so if you struggle with a lack of appetite or nausea, you're in luck.
This bud isn't overly difficult to cultivate at home, although some experience may be helpful for this heavy brancher. Indoor or outdoor growth is just fine, and unlike other strains, she'll do quite well in the face of colder weather. A careful eye is required though because if you let her go more than her 7 to 9-week flowering period, she'll start to lose flavor. One more word to the wise, as Blue Buddha smells awful as she grows - make sure to invest in a smell-proof set-up if you're rearing her inside.
With a truly fun and varied set of effects that takes you across a gamut of feelings, Blue Buddha is a great option if you want to spice up your Wednesday afternoon. Try her on the weekends as well if you want to get a few things done before zoning out and taking a well-deserved nap.
