STRAIN: Santa Cruz Blue Dream
(THCa 21.95 / THC0.69%)
CLASS: Sativa Dominant Hybrid * the indica-lean of this Blue Dream should not be underestimated.
Santa Cruz Blue Dream has a distinctly more Indica feel than other offshoot Blue Dream variants.
NOTE: This is actually the original Blue Dream first bred in Northern California not the run-of-the-mill you may see. Don’t let the inclusion of “Santa Cruz” fool you.
PURCHASED: Ethos (Mission*) Catonsville Medical Dispensary*
*The batch of Santa Cruz Blue Dream was purchased while this dispensary was still Mission. Formerly Mission Catonsville Medical Dispensary, Mission is now Ethos Catonsville Medical Dispensary at of 09/29/20.
NOTE: The staff at Ethos, formerly Mission is the same incredibly warm and knowledgeable staff. Nothing has changed but the name as far as I can tell. This includes employees, management, product lines, and reward points incentives. Still my favorite dispensary because of the staff.
LINEAGE: DJ Short Blueberry x Super Silver Haze
NOTE: This seems to be the original crossing of Blue Dream created in Northern California

- well suited for creative endeavors

APPEARANCE, AROMA, TASTE :
Typical Blue Dream bud structure: loosely packed medium sized elongated buds that have an unassuming, almost immature appearance. Bright green calyx covered in mature, robust, and spindly orange stigma are in abundance. There seems to be a bit more trichome crust interspersed over the buds’ surface than one would normally expect from Blue Dream.
Evermore’s Santa Cruz Blue Dream is a classic Blue Dream with something extra from its Super Silver Haze genetics, which is , a genetically engineered strain comprised
includes the classic Indica heavy hitter, Northern Lights, which is one third of its Super Silver Haze genetics.
Good For Bowls and Rolls: Very easy to break up for spliffs, bongs, and vapes. Crusty, airy, buds.
- blueberry cream aroma
- pine blueberry with a creamy finish
A CLOSER LOOK INSIDE:
The level of Pinene at .387% adds to the uplifting euphoria of this strain. The relaxation levels are really astounding levels for a “Blue Dream”.
Considering this is the original Blue Dream you can see why the word “Dream” is part of its name. You can thank the .633% of Beta-Myrcene and .197% of Beta- Caryophelene .197% for this.
Seriously, I am tempted to say this felt like a straight 50%/50 Indica/ Sativa during a few sessions with Evermore’s Santa Cruz Blue Dream. Definitely a dreamy experience.
Santa Cruz Blue Dream, is the original Blue Dream comprised of genes from Blueberry X Super Silver Haze with effects that are uplifting, euphoric, cerebrally stimulating along with a potent Indica-type effect that lulls you into a very physically and mentally relaxed, mellow and state promoting sedation and promoting sleep.
THE LONG WAY HOME (my toke)
I was surprised at the sedative quality and the indica-type effect it has overall.
I purchased this because I like to have Blue Dream on hand: it is very effective for migraine symptoms and I like the way it creatively inspires without crowding my head.
I was happy with Evermore’s inclusion of the genetics on the label, since Santa Cruz a distinct, and different strain.
Evermore’s Santa Cruz Blue Dream has an Indica effect that soothes muscle tension and , at higher doses, can aid in sleep.
This is attributable, in my opinion, to its Super Silver Haze parent, which is a purposely bred sativa -Indica Hybrid genetically comprised of Original Haze x Skunk #1 x Northern Lights #5, the classic Indica heavy hitter. This along with the inherent relaxing effects of the Blueberry genetics really push this into a Sativa /Indica Hybrid contrary to its designation as a “Sativa Hybrid” indicating to me a more dominant Sativa influence.
Evermore delivers again with another fantastic strain. I’ve never been disappointed by their flower. In fact I find it to be some of the most superior cannabis I’ve ever ingested.
Santa Cruz BD is right up there with them.
I definitely wouldn’t say this is a typical Blue Dream because of its heavy Indica leanings.
The Blueberry genetics really seem to this enjoyable, hard hitting strain, rich in terpenes, flavor, and aroma, with the ability to creatively inspire and elevate but ultimately soothe your body to sedation and promote sleep.
