We know what instantly came to your mind when you saw the title of this strain, but we guarantee it's not as cheesy and intense as you'd imagine. Created in Washington by Exotic Genetix, Blue Steel is an indica-dominant bud that will help you to have an amazing evening. This cross of The Cube and OG Blueberry imparts a lift before settling you down into welcome sedation.
THC levels can vary quite a bit with this bud, and depending on where you buy it, you're looking at anything between 15% and 26% potency. Blue Steel nugs are super gorgeous with a fluffy and large structure that contains golden pistils and matching sparkling trichomes. Blueberries, earth, and herbs come together for a flavor and aroma that's sweeter than you'd imagine, making for a great after dinner treat.
This hybrid takes you on a fairly typical ride during your hours-long high, but there's nothing boring about it. Initially, you'll experience a cerebral boost that leaves you feeling super creative and motivated, allowing you to tackle any project that's been sitting on your plate. While you may be thrilled with this sense of happiness and sociability, it will soon fade into a relaxed state of bliss. As you relax, preferably in a horizontal position, your hunger level will surge and you'd better hope that you have snacks in the kitchen.
Due to her somewhat high THC levels and strong sedative effects, Blue Steel is a prime choice for relieving bodily pain including cramps, headaches, and even instances of chronic pain. Her burst of euphoria helps to banish stress and depression, and anyone who deals with anxiety will find a welcome sense of calm that lasts nearly the whole night. Some who struggle with nausea and a lack of appetite will find their munchies to be a blessing, so again we can't stress enough - have snacks ready.
Blue Steel seems to be a bit particular when it comes to growing at home, and although many tout her as an easy to manage strain, you'll want to make sure you have things just right. Greenhouse environments work best and after 8 to 9 weeks of flowering time, you'll be surprised with a pretty high yield. Plants don't get overly large, which is a plus, but you'll want to keep your eye on these beauties just to make sure they're happy.
Whether you need help with some creative juices, want to relax at the end of a long day, or need pain relief that's quick and effective, Blue Steel has your back. The fact that she's tasty doesn't hurt her case, and if you have a knack for growing at home, be sure to add her to your garden. We'll say it one last time just so you can't say we didn't warn you - go grocery shopping before you light this one up.
