If you know the way of the Blue Dragon, then you’ll be aware of the fantastic cerebral high that comes with every puff. The reason why this nug of magic has been given such a fantastical name is because of its blueberry taste and with a diesel fragrance.
You can smoke out your room like the mythical creature you are. Of course, there is more to the Blue Dragon than its awesome name. It has amazing anxiety and depression treatments which makes it both recreational and medicinal.
The Blue Dragon has a THC percentage of 19%, which means it has a pretty high euphoria effect. If you are new to marijuana, you should slowly ride the Blue Dragon, so you don’t become overwhelmed by this new smokey world.
Take a look at the Side Effect section below to understand why this high potency can be problematic if you’ve started off too strong.
What Is Blue Dragon Strain?
Like any animal sidekick, the Blue Dragon will lift your mood without causing you anxiety.
How Was Blue Dragon Developed
This hybrid strain is slightly more Indica dominated but only by a little bit, as the ratio between Indica and Sativa is 60% to 40%. The breeders crossed Blueberry and Sour Diesel to create this majestic beast.
Looking at the THC levels alone, we would suggest that the effects are mid to high, but Blue Dragon starts off with a punch. The first toke will send you on the wing of euphoria, so you should prepare for the effects to happen quickly.
Blue Dragon has inherited its blueberry flavor from its Blueberry parent, and it is the first and most potent flavor that you will notice. Soon after, you’ll see the second strongest taste of diesel that lingers in your mouth.
As the smoke puffs out, you should become aware of the spicy and floral hints that dance alongside each other.
Odor And Flavor
Again with a parent like Blueberry, we would be surprised if you thought the strong aroma would smell like anything other than its namesake, but that doesn’t mean that Sour Diesel had no influence on Blue Dragon.
You will also smell a skunk and diesel scent in this pungent strain, which means it will be somewhat noticeable even before you light it up. When you grind the bud, you might be able to find slight hints of orange or grape in the subtle aromas.
Shaped like a cone, the Blue Dragon is a fluffy nug that continues to shine in its blue hues. The overall deep forest green is contrasted in prominent blues and delicate purples.
Scattered along the outside, you’ll see the diamond-like sparkle of trichomes and the delicate hairs of pistils burning orange.
If you are a first-time grower, then Blue Dragon is a great friend, to begin with. This is because of its hardy nature, which holds firm against mold and pests.
You can grow Blue Dragon both indoors and outdoors, but if you leave it in the cold for too long, it will likely go into a short term shock. Being in shock will disrupt its growth cycle, and you will end up with a smaller yield.
You can expect a flowering time of 9 weeks, with a yield of 25 oz per plant if you are growing outdoors and 18 oz per square meters if you are growing indoors.
The Blue Dragon is known for its high euphoric sensations, which dance through your mind, but as the intensity wears down, you can feel a strong feeling of relaxation take over your body.
If you have a high THC tolerance, then you will find this transformation unusually quick, as you go from super focused to yawning in less than an hour.
If you are new to the world of cannabis, then you should take the Blue Dragon journey slowly, otherwise, you can burn through your euphoric feelings too quickly, leading you to fall asleep before you know it.
There are very few side effects with taking the Blue Dragon, but you may experience some dizziness and headaches if you go too fast. Usually, the only side effect you should be aware of is the possibility of dry eyes and a dry mouth.
To combat these, you should drink a lot of water and keep eye moisturizer nearby.
One of the most popular features of the Blue Dragon strain is its uplighting effect. If you have depression, anxiety, or stress, then this mythical beast could be your new best friend, as it raises you out of the darkness.
You should notice that after just a few tokes, your worries have melted away. The euphoric feeling only lasts for a short time, so if you are severely mentally ill, this quick relief might not be enough. Instead of continuously reaching for that high, a different strain might be more effective.
Blue Dragon’s other magical ability is to help you focus, which means those who are diagnosed with ADD and ADHD might find this monstrosity to be a surprisingly helpful guide.
But the main factor in the Blue Dragon’s uses is how quickly it can make you sleepy. If you are an insomniac, then the blue smoke of this creature might be the potion you’ve been craving.
If you were after more easy-growing strains, then we suggest Blue Dream, Weddy Cake, and Super Lemon Haze. If you want to collect more focus giving strains, then we suggest Afghan Cow, Powderhound, and Chairman Chem Sou.
Blue Dragon is 60% Indica and 40% Sativa, which has created a 19% THC level and a 1% CBD level.
