The Weekly Strain Breakdown: Blueberry

The Mysterious History of Blueberry

Blueberry is an indica dominant strain that was created by American cannabis breeder, DJ Short, in the early 70’s. The exact lineage has been lost to time but several prominent producers have tried to resurrect it. Rumor has it that DJ Short was experimenting with various exotic landrace strains that created Blueberry. Over the years different breeders who worked and traded with DJ Short cultivated their own versions of Blueberry.

Some say that that Blueberry could be a combination of Purple Thai and Afghan. Others say that Blueberry is a combination of Afghani, Thai and Purple Thai. No matter which parents were used to cultivate the phenotype, breeders love this strain of cannabis because of its relaxing effects and long-lasting euphoric sensations.

Blueberry is an award-winning strain. It won the High Times Cannabis Cup in the year 2000 for Best Indica. This strain can be found in several dispensaries along the west coast as it has become a dispensary staple.

  • Where can I find THIS strain? I live in San Diego & article mentioned it is available on the west coast. I have tried “Blueberry Cream” & LOVED it! Dispensary that I use eventually ran out of it to my dismay. I was SO disappointed because I use it for medical purposes only & it was effective. I have only been smoking for 3 years I was scared to death of it before now I know after much research how much safer it is instead of alcohol or helps me NOT have to take large amounts of pharmaceuticals. I suffer from chronic daily migraines, cluster headaches, fibromyalgia, arthritis, depression, PTSD and anxiety just to name the BIG ones… not to mention two major back surgeries and over 60+ procedures (including two spinal taps) & the relief I got was life changing. But my migraines (even though cannabis helps a LOT) are my main disability. It has taken me to the depths of hell (STILL there for the most part) but as I said better off than before. Doctors unfortunately under treat chronic pain (BUT that’s another story). I don’t know if the Blueberry is the same strain or related to Blueberry Cream strain. I will say the effects weren’t like what was described in the article. THIS would be a great strain for me to get. Can you please help me find out if its sold here in San Diego? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hey Michelle,

      I’m sorry to hear about your health conditions but am glad you are finding relief.

      In my experience, Blueberry is a 90/10 indica dominant strain most common in Northern California and Oregon around fall harvest time. I have seen it in Nevada as well but it isn’t as popular there. But as always, your mileage may vary. Blue Cream is a nice 50/50 hybrid sired by Blueberry and AK-47. If that was what you smoked I understand why it would have had a different effect than described above.

      Hope this helps,
      Adam Rhodes
