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.

You got a much better batch of that stuff than I did. Mine was wet and moldy smelling/tasting. Chalk that up to rushed packaging from a huge grower. Also had it the 24% independently testing from A360 and it came back at 19%, still high, but not 24%, so there are some shenanigans going on there. The product is also definitely not cured at all. Its dried, but not cured, its lacking the complexity and depth of properly cured buds. This reminded me a lot of BC bud from Vancouver back in the day, same smoke and taste. I doubt this is really even a blue dream, doesn’t really have the sativa-y effects of a normal blue dream…

Thanks for your comment, and l really do appreciate you sharing your experience. I agree that it’s not cured as well as it could be, and upon you bringing that up I’m going to slightly alter the section about how it looks.
And yeah, as you can see from the label – they didn’t specify which side the hybrid leans towards. Judging from the come-down I experienced, I completely agree that it’s more indica dominant.
Thanks again for sharing 😀

I’ve been enjoying my smoke for about 30 years. I’m delighted that Mary Jane is finally getting the recognition it deserves. I live in Selah, WA and do my shopping in Union Gap (Station 420 & Mill House). I visited Mill House and purchased a JuJu Joint distributed from Liberty Reach -$104 w/ tax!! I got 23 hits off this advertised 150 hitter! I told Mill House and they gave me a freebie. I picked it up yesterday …. Randomly taking hits, the joint was expired by around 10:00pm!! What’s Up with these things? When I went to bed I had NO affect from it!! I decided to let you know since Mill House has already extended their generosity. I’m not a mooch trying to get freebies! I’m a former business owner from Alaska just trying to enjoy a retired lifestyle.
Thanks for reading my post…… TRULY QUESTIONABLE PRODUCT
Sorry to hear you didn’t have a great experience with the JuJu – bummer! Appreciate your comment as any feedback can help all those involved.
