Blue Dream is a well known sativa, renowned for it’s crisp and airy high. It’s one of the few buds I’d recommend for a functional “morning high”, and this week we’ve got an iteration of the popular strain produced by NorthWest Cannabis Solutions (or NWCS for short). We’ve reviewed Haze from NWCS (Private Reserves) before (which was o-kay), but this Blue Dream is worthy of any veteran smoker.
NorthWest Cannabis Solutions is a jack of all trades producer, representing multiple brands across the recreational marijuana industry: Private Reserve, Legends, Solutions, Evergreen, EZ VAPE. and Magic Kitchen. Notably, their Legends products are consistently high quality and affordable. 3.5 grams of the Blue Dream you see in the pictures cost me $35, which is an excellent price.
By having so many brands, NWCS products are available in almost every pot shop I visit. At first the presence felt a little dominating, and I was wary of quantity over quality – but after enjoying several products (on and off the-review-record), the availability seemed like a good thing.
Even shops that are just opening (either by transition from medical, or brand new) seemingly have tons from the producer. I was just at the formerly medical-only (now 21+) Have a Heart* in Fremont the other day (amid drunken 8-bit antics at Add-A-Ball), and they had a spry collection of NWCS products. Perfect little $35 indulgence, and then back across the street for more inebriated pinball.
Let’s talk some weed specifics:
Strain: Blue Dream
Date Manufactured: 01/08/16
Smell: Funky Banana + Berry
Taste: Fruity + Sharp + Tangy
Launch Point: Almost immediately after smoking.
High: Blissful + Light + Social + Active
The buds are absolutely caked, decently trimmed, and seemed to burn well out of all contraptions. This Blue Dream is dense, but delicate enough to crumble between your fingers.
When in the grinder, the smell of weed takes over. Careful, you might wake the neighbors with this cheesy banana funk emanating from the basement. The taste is similar, with notes berry and a sharpness – almost a tanginess that lingers.
Getting stoned with Blue Dream is a highly euphoric experience, the sun itself seems to shine brighter. There is a lightness that comes with the feeling, and it’s why (as I said in the opening paragraph) this strain is one of a rare few I’ve dubbed “morning weed”; it won’t leave you burnt-out come afternoon because of the clear headed high.
Even though it’s strictly a sativa, that little 0.1% CBD gives a body vibe that works real well with the “mostly” head high. Embrace the day and venture forth; this is a strain created for being social, moving around, and enjoying yourself (not to say you can’t veg out with Blue Dream, as well – the world is your oyster).
Northwest Cannabis Solution products are probably available at whatever recreational mairjuana retailer is closest to you. We know for sure they can be found at Dockside Cannabis (SODO), Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop (Capital Hill), Have a Heart (Fremont), and Green-Theory (Bellevue). Don’t see your shop? Feel free to have a look-see at NWCS’ Product Finder.
