The Sandman is a mythical figure that sprinkles bits of sand, or dust, or kief onto the closed eyes of sleeping people to give them the most wonderful dreams. And oh how wonderful those dreams can be. People know he’s visited when there is grit in their eyes when they wake up from a very deep sleep, evidence of the Sandman’s handiwork.
Many people have heard of the Sandman and of his dealings. But not many know that his favorite color is Blue Dream.
Blue Dream is an incredibly popular strain of cannabis. Users know it for its quality constitution and its distinctively balanced highs. A strain legendary enough to rival the celebrity of even that of the Sandman must have an epic and well-chronicled history. But alas, Blue Dream’s exact history remains a bit hazy.
Thanks to Leafly, we do know that it is grown by crossing Blueberry and Haze — two popular strains in their own rights, which Blue Dream masterfully combines. The euphorias of Blueberry come together with the engaging stimulus of Haze for a harmonious balance of soft relaxation and eager energy.
There’s an unhinged look to Blue Dream that makes it seem right out of a dream itself. The buds are long and wild, almost writhing into each other. The different hues of milky white shades, ochre accents, and of course the deep blues found from within complete a strain that embodies its own mysterious origins and complex highs.
Yet this enigma of a strain tastes quite simply and sweetly of blueberries, just as one of its parent’s namesake suggests. The aromas and the taste linger for a bit even after a clean exhale. It fills the nose and coats the tongue with the sugary tart flavors of fresh berries.
Mr. Sandman Bring Me A Dream
Blue Dream’s high handles like a dream. There is a pleasant buzzing, like white noise, that starts in the head and ends in the toes. The high’s symmetry brings together both the mental and physical aspects of cannabis highs and grants a complete sensation.
Although there is definitely a factor of relaxation with Blue Dream, there is no mistake that the sensations are those of a stimulant. There is no sudden jarring rise of energy, but rather a quiet earnest swelling of body and spirit.
After an experience with Blue Dream, one can’t help but become more curious as to the origins of this fantastical strain. Who was responsible for discovering such a fittingly dream-like strain? Surely it had to be someone with first hand experience in understanding and granting good dreams. Perhaps it’ll remain a mystery, a story lost to the sands of time.
