It’s also a very potent strain with a THC content of between 16% and 23.5% and a CBD level of around 0.26%. It is noted for its ability to combat anxiety and stress, facilitate calmness and ease restlessness. It is an ideal strain for managing chronic pain and insomnia, and some have claimed that Blueberry is arousing as well.
It is one of the most popular strains on the market, and in 2000 Blueberry won the High Times Cannabis Cup in the Best Indica and Best Overall strain categories. It received third place in the Overall category in 2001.
Blueberry has been reported to assist patients in relieving some signs of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by building a physical relaxation that effectively calms a preoccupied brain. Cultivars like Blueberry may also help reduce some side effects of chemotherapy, such as nausea and appetite loss.
During the early seedling stage (two to three weeks), Blueberry requires high nitrogen levels. Soil should be prepared with high-grade fertilizer in the greenhouse before the plant is shifted outdoors.
There are a few pruning techniques used to increase yield. “Topping” (cutting the plant’s main stalk) sculpts it into a bush shape. If it grows into this structure, it will put more resources into developing buds and take up less space. Pruning also increases airflow to prevent powdery mildew infection.
Blueberry cannabis has a reputation for producing high yields compared to other strains, attributed to its aforementioned bushy shape. Indoors it can provide 18 ounces of bud per square meter. However, outdoors, you can expect a yield of up to 25 ounces per plant. In addition to nitrogen, silica and iron are minor nutrients that could also help boost the health of your Blueberry plant.
