The Blueberry OG strain is one example of this – two classic, beloved strains mixed together to form something altogether different, yet still extremely familiar. Let’s take a look at the Blueberry OG strain and find out if it can manage to live up to the reputation of its esteemed parents. The Blueberry OG strain was originally created using the DJ Short Blueberry strain crossed with OG Kush, one of the most classic weed strains ever known. With a name like Blueberry OG, you immediately conjure up an odd combination of both intense, fresh blueberries and the classic, dank flavor of the OG family of weed. It is important to note, however, that the Blueberry part of this strain’s genetics actually belongs to DJ Short Blueberry, which is subtly different from the classic Blueberry strain that should be familiar to any fruity strain lovers out there.
Developed in the West Coast, this Blueberry offshoot was spliced and bred and bred again until the flavors were thoroughly concentrated and hybridized, creating a singularly potent Blueberry flavor and rich quantities of THC. When paired with the almighty classic indica legend, OG Kush, you end up with an indica leaning hybrid that maintains the flavors of both of its parents, while also bringing with it a profoundly cognizant, yet altogether otherworldly high. After your very first puff of Blueberry OG, you will immediately notice a stunning sensation of euphoric rush, creating a noticeable feeling of lightheadedness and the sensation of suddenly floating high above the ground. You will initially stumble for a brief period, until you realize that there is not a single ounce of stress or worry left within your entire body, ultimately providing an incredibly potent, beautiful rush of calm, relaxed feeling that you will struggle to remember ever experiencing before. A smile will become fixed on your face, giving you a thoroughly uplifted, yet strangely focused mindset on everything around you, meaning that, while you are smiling like an idiot and gazing all around you, you will still find yourself able to focus on any tasks you have left to do at the end of the day. One of the most recognizable features of this high is the incredible desire to simply keep talking, no matter what happens, after a little while of smoking this strain. If you are comfortable within a group that is all sharing some Blueberry OG, your conversation will seem to go on for hours, talking about anything and everything and truly opening yourselves up to one another. If, however, you are the only one who is currently enjoying Blueberry OG, then your friends will find you rambling incessantly, as well as finding it incapable of shutting you up.
So, for the sake of the sanity of those around you, make sure you only really ever smoke Blueberry OG in the company of other like-minded people. Is there the typically expected intensity of Blueberries and dank OG diesel, as you would expect? As would most certainly be expected from a strain called Blueberry OG, this marijuana strain has the immediately noticeable first smell of fresh blueberries. The original Blueberry strain, simply called “Blueberry,” was well known for the smell of fresh, bursting blueberries hitting your tongue. With Blueberry OG, the smell is a bit more textured than that, carrying with it the scent of the forest around the blueberries themselves, as well as the earth itself. Undercutting the profoundly potent blueberry flavor is the distinct quality of rich clods of earth, packed full of life and vibrancy. The smell only deepens further when you open the buds up, providing rich undercurrents of other berries, with the occasional hint of sourness and diesel that is immediately recognizable as being from OG Kush. On first smoking this famous strain, the obvious initial flavor is one of the blueberries. Bright, dancing blueberries on your tongue, with rich, teeming juice that seems to run across your mouth and makes you salivate physically. However, the earthiness is far more noticeable than with its aroma, immediately hitting you with that rich flavor of dirt, as well as just a little bit of peat as well. At the very back of your throat, hidden beneath that initial wave of tart yet sweet blueberries, is that strong and constantly familiar OG Kush taste. Diesel, dankness and a little bit of sour earth, these two primary flavors meld and mesh together constantly, creating this burst of intense flavor that leaves you spinning on the spot. Does it have an attractive appearance to go along with its flavor profile? Surprisingly, this uniquely potent strain doesn’t have any particular qualities in its appearance that make it especially noticeable. It is bright green with lashings of yellow, like a sun-dappled forest seen through the clouds, yet it does also possess the occasional touch of darker colors like purple and even, on occasion, a bit of rusty red. The buds are medium-sized and decently compact – the Blueberry OG strain altogether looks like your everyday marijuana bud, only with a few extra colorful additions to help it stand out. However, a few samples of this strain, in a similar method to its original parent, Blueberry, can tend to become even more colorful if they are subjected to cooler temperatures, especially during the drying phase of bud production. This is quite difficult to find at your local dispensary; however. The very best way to find this kind of uniquely attractive color variety is to try and grow some Blueberry OG yourself. Blueberry OG seeds are generally considered to be a bit of a rare sight in the cannabis market. This is because of the fact that the original growers of its Blueberry parent, DJ Short, hold the seeds trademark quite tightly, making it rather difficult to find any usable seeds as a result of their scarcity. Instead, try and get your hands on a clipping from a trustworthy friend, as this plant grows exceptionally well from a clone. You can grow it either indoors or outdoors, but make sure that you keep it well pruned as this strain tends to grow rather like a dense, prickly bush, causing it to overshadow the branches on the lower portions of the plant.
Additionally, if you want to cultivate that beautiful color quality that many Blueberry strains possess, you need to subject it to slightly colder temperatures (no more than about 10 degrees Fahrenheit) for a few days just before flowering. This is easiest to do if grown indoors, as you can simply change the temperature of the room, but you can also pray for colder weather if you grow it outdoors. Expect a sizeable harvest after between 8 and 10 weeks, especially if you paid close attention to the nutritional needs of your Blueberry OG during its early growth – it tends to prefer a bit more nitrogen than other strains, so make sure to keep it well fertilized and happy. Once you have got your Blueberry OG grown, what kind of cannabinoid content can you expect from your finished bud? Blueberry OG cannabis is well known for its potency, as well as its myriad of different effects. However, what isn’t 100% clear is its precise cannabinoid content.
Some growers and reviewers state that this strain has a whopping 24% THC content, yet others state that it has an almost 2:1 ratio of CBD, focusing on its extremely low 16% THC content. From just the high alone, it would seem to make sense that the THC content of Blueberry OG wouldn’t be too much, as it doesn’t induce much psychosis or any kind of intense reactions. However, the strength of Blueberry OG speaks for itself, making it absolutely certain that it does, in the least, contain more THC than most other similar hybrids. With regard to the exact CBD content of the Blueberry OG strain, it is even less clear than its THC content.
