Blue Magoo is an indica dominant hybrid.
The indica/blue portion of Blue Magoo is provided by the legendary Blueberry cannabis lineage. The racy sativa elements were supplied by a choice F2 phenotype. Portland based breeders, Dynasty Seeds also bred other legendary strains like Caramel Cough and Huckleberry Diesel.
Blue Magoo represents some of the best an indica has to offer. The strain mix generally runs about 85% heavy indica and 15% racy sativa. This results in a potent narcotic-like high with lab results typically coming in between 16-12% THC and little or no CBD.
A popular strain on the West Coast, it has begun popping up around the country. Growers love it for the decent commercial production while consumers love it for the color and potent effects. Users normally report relief of many symptoms and feeling great all day.
Blue Magoo grows as a medium to large flower.
Growing this poses some challenges as Dynasty Seeds has only licensed clones so far. That means people need to find a genetic source with a mother plant. But its hearty nature has made Blue Magoo a viable option for growers in temperate climates.
If the plants are exposed to low temperatures during the growing season, the flowers can develop a deep blue or purple color. But growers often need to trim fan leaves to allow light to reach lower tiers of the canopy. Regardless, the buds are generally loose and fluffy. This is one reason Blue Magoo concentrates are more common than flower in many locations.
The flowers generally feel oily from the large and bulbous trichomes. And after about 7-8 weeks, the flowers will be mature enough to harvest. Trimming, drying and curing are all pretty average. Growers can choose the method that works best for them.
Blue Magoo provides a relaxing high.
Users often report feeling instant relaxation pass over them as they smoke this strain. Breathing slows and tense muscles loosen in a slightly narcotic fashion. The heavy high offers powerful sedation but leaves the mind able to perform creative tasks. The uplifted mood and calmer demeanor is only the tip of the iceberg.
One of the hallmarks of Blue Magoo is the euphoric and even giggly nature to the high. It is not uncommon for people to become especially chatty after only a few hits. Or for smiles to gorw so large it makes the user squint. But the relief it provides the body is enough to keep users coming back for more.
Insomniacs find the effects of this strain help ease them into blissful oblivion. While people suffering from depression find some benefit from consuming it as well. Some additional uses people have reported for Blue Magoo include relieving stress, pain and nausea. Although some use it all day, most recommend this as a nighttime strain.
Expect few appetite problems and other side effects.
Users report that eating enough is never an issue with this strain. The appetite stimulation is on the higher end but doesn’t leave the user mindlessly consuming anything in their path. But the heavy sedation may mean that delicious meal you crave sounds like too much effort. But that isn’t the only thing to watch out for.
Blue Magoo comes with the usual case of dry mouth and dry eyes. But they are much more noticeable than with some other strains. Eyes appear droopy and deep red to even casual observers. The redness is easy enough to treat with eye drops but the droopy look will remain. But the real side effect to watch out for isn’t red eyes.
Smoking too much of this strain can quickly lead to feelings of anxiety, dizziness and paranoia. The initial high is sedating but after enough hits, the racy sativa undertones really start to kick in. Slow visual responsiveness leads to feelings of dizziness from quick motion. And they all compound with the creative element to allow feelings of paranoia to creep in.
Blue Magoo smells like ripe blueberries.
The sweet and fruity smell of this strain is quite pleasing. Breaking open a nug releases a powerful blast of euphoria-inducing aromas. From the start of the hit to the aftertaste, Blue Magoo is sweet and flavorful. The Blueberry lineage really shines through on this one.
But the hint of floral elements adds a new dimension to the flavor. It really is a treat to smoke and a joy to dab. Under some circumstances, earthy undertones can come to the front and provide a satisfying base to the flavor. Just don’t let the taste make you consume too much.
