With this sudden jolt of heat, I figured a crystal-cool sativa would hit the spot. We’ve covered Blue Dream before, but not the iteration from Phat Panda. It was recommended to me by a budtender at Fremont’s fully recreational Have-A-Heart*, a gram cost $18 – which is a little steep, but after she showed me the bud it was already bought (in my mind).
The producer is one that I’ve seen many times before, but had not picked up. Washington based, Phat Panda is a brand line of marijuana under the guise of Grow Op Farms. Featuring over 40 strains, these farmers have been hard at work.
Judging from the webpage, the nugs look spectacular. If you don’t believe me, check out their pictures; deep colors with potency to match. Phat Panda clearly delivers an artisan line of marijuana.
Let’s get to the Specifics, already!:
THC A: 23%
Strain: Blue Dream
Smell: Vanilla + Tangerine
Taste: Cheese + Citrus
Launch Point: Instantaneous after smoking.
High: Clear headed + Euphoric + Motivational
According to Phat Panda’s website, “Blue dream is… born from crossing DJ Short’s Blueberry Indica and the Santa Cruz native Super Silver Haze. It’s medicinal uses are mainly in the treatment of depression and anxiety related symptoms”.
I took the pictures right as the sun was setting, around 7:30pm. The last golden ray of shine cast itself upon Blue Dream, and it lit up like a tiny planet itself. Delicate and keif covered, these nugs are worth the entry fee (if you’re feeling a treat ‘yo self mood coming on).
After crumbling a bud apart, there were immediate hints of something like tangerine citrus. I also smelled sweetness, maybe vanilla. In terms of taste, I definitely picked up cheesy funkiness; along with a bit of the citrus vibe from before.
The high is strong, but not in a way that feels thick. There is a crispness factor that is almost motivational; encouraging you to be positive with whatever you are doing. Blue Dream is versatile in terms of smoking anytime of the day or night, which is why it’s one of everybody’s favorite strains.
Nice weather is upon us, so we must in turn respond with nice nugs. Phat Panda products are also available at many retailers, some of which being: Green-Theory (Bellevue), Stash Pot Shop (Ballard), Ganja Goddess (SODO), and the aforementioned Have-A-Heart (Fremont).
*Have-A-Heart is an advertiser on High Above Seattle. This is no way influences the review of the marijuana itself. It’s conveniently close to where I live (though there are many locations), thoughtfully architecturally designed (it was a medical shop long before), and I’d be buying there regardless of the fact.
