The indica-dominant Blue Sky is a sedative strain with a beautiful bag appeal. Although its creators are unknown, it’s a cross between LSD and flavor-engineered Rocky Mountain Blueberry, according to High Times. This strain combines the physical relaxation of its parent strains with a nuanced spicy berry taste profile that attracts indica users. Blue Sky is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain with THC levels ranging from 13% to 19 percent.
Blue Sky distinguishes itself from other blue strains by producing medium to large buds with a tapered, spade-like form that is consistent with the unusual parent strain LSD’s strangely triangle flowers. In line with the typical indica structure, leaves stay attached in the dense and firm bud development. Leaves are dark green on top and mossy green on the bottom, streaked with red pistils. Blue Sky is available in a variety of colors. Blue Sky has leaves with splotches of blue; these bright hues are the consequence of anthocyanins, which are pigments found in the plant’s DNA. When temperatures drop below average, these pigments cause blues and purples to appear, much like chlorophyll levels falling during the fall causes leaves to turn color. These brightly colored blooms have translucent silvery trichomes that give them a sticky quality and add to their translucency.
Flowers of Blue Sky, when properly dried, have a wonderful blueberry flavor thanks to Rocky Mountain Blueberry. There are also some herbal and piney undertones that keep the fruit scent from being too sweet. Breaking or grinding up the flowers creates musky and earthy undertones. When burned, Blue Sky has a mild smoke with a fruity floral aftertaste when combusted. Those expecting blue blooms to taste like grapes may be disappointed; while the terpenes that determine the bud’s flavor have no relationship to those that make it blue in any way.
Blue Sky takes only a few minutes to manifest itself in an indica. It starts as a strong pressure around the eyes and temples, which is soon followed by an increase in the senses: sights, sounds, and even tastes developing new dimensions (and in fact smokers may be particularly attracted to this strain’s taste combinations since it can be a powerful hunger stimulant). Blue Sky has both a calming and stimulating effect. Blue Sky is a hazy disposition that makes it ideal for watching an odd film or engaging in an unwinding and giggling chat with some close pals. Finally, Blue Sky leaves its consumers calm if not entirely incapacitated, making it excellent for socializing or relaxing. Smoke this bud during the day or early evening; just don’t expect to be productive afterwards.
Blue Sky has the potential to be used in a variety of medical cannabis applications. Its ability to induce somatic relaxation can help with chronic and acute pains alike. Anti-inflammatory effects may also aid in the treatment of headaches and nausea. This strain’s relaxing effect might make it helpful for individuals dealing with stressful situations. Because this strain is unlikely to cause paranoid or obsessive thinking, it may be an excellent choice for people who are prone to anxiety or have a sensitive THC sensitivity.
Blue Sky was not produced or stabilized by a commercial breeder. As a result, to grow genetically identical “clones,” prospective producers must acquire clippings from reputable breeders. Although there is limited information regarding the technique for growing Blue Sky indoors or outside in a warm, semi-humid environment, we do know that it may be cultivated both indoors and outdoors. Those who wish to emphasize the strain’s distinct blue tints should expose their plants to cold (but not below freezing) temperatures before blooming begins.
Take a leaf from this strain’s name and have fun while picnicking or relaxing beneath a clear blue sky. Blue Sky is pleasant to relax with at home and unwind after a long day of working, whether it’s not your thing.
