I had the pleasure of getting my hands on some Blue Dream, handmade by Liberty Reach – and currently being sold at Bothell’s Herbal Nation.
Liberty Reach is a grower based out of Raymond, Washington. Using a brief Google search, one can find out that Liberty Reach is actually a “brand name” for producer/processor BMF Washington. There is no official website for BMF Washington or Liberty Reach (that I could find), but there is a BMF Washington Facebook page with 6(!) likes.
Herbal Nation was selling two different Blue Dream’s from Liberty Reach: one batch had a stronger THC percentage, and cost slightly more. Naturally, I went for the higher THC Blue Dream because, why not?
The packaging itself is simple, adorning an image of a mountain with stars. It has a homemade feel, further reinforced by the line “handcrafted in Raymond, Washington”.
This specific Blue Dream has a very pungent and sweet smell, with a slight lingering spice. It seems to permeate through the bag, beckoning to be sampled.
Smoking out of a water pipe, Blue Dream tastes fresh with a gradual sour flavor (which is delicious). Smokeability itself is superb, the buds burn great and aren’t harsh.
Getting high with this Blue Dream will result in an instant wave of euphoria upon exhaling. The feeling comes on strong, and you’ll continue to peak higher over the course of a half hour; it’s kind of like watching a balloon rise up towards the skies, uncontrolled and at the mercy of the elements taking it higher.
It’s a wonderful feeling though – one I would recommend for those with a couple hours to fully enjoy it. This is not the herb you want to smoke right before you have to do anything important – like work. The way the high builds is very intense and should be enjoyed without constraints of order; in a couple hours you’ll be sorted, and moving on to the next hit. Also, I’m not advocating getting high before work… I just know some people do it and am giving them fair warning.
Comedown is not as bad as you would imagine for such a high THC content strain, but still you’re going to feel on the tired side. It’s basically like taking a trip to outer space and back – but without getting the bends.
Heed my advice: save this superbly potent Blue Dream for a day off, take your protein pills, and put your helmet on.
I got Liberty Reach’s Blue Dream at Herbal Nation in Bothell. $29.99 / gram.
