Got the blues? This Sativa dominant hybrid strain is a pretty well balanced 60/40 split, with an average of 23% THC— and its sweet fruity scent and euphoric psychedelic effects will turn that frown upside down.
Users describe the Blueberry Haze high as not being too sedative unless you keep building it up, and that it’s one of the sweetest strains you can find on the market, which is good news for most palates.
Blueberry Haze’s half-brother, Blueberry Dream are often mistaken for each other, but this makes sense considering they have the same “Blueberry Parent” in their genetics. Blueberry Haze’s other parent is the classic Haze strain while Blueberry Dreams’ other parent is Super Silver Haze.
Let’s take a closer look at the Blueberry Haze strains parents to see what traits it inherited.
If marijuana strains were celebrities, then this is the Meryl Streep of buds — everyone knows them and loves them. Cannaseurs will search far and wide for it, and growers love it because it brings out the flavors of other strains. The Blueberry marijuana strain was initially bred back in the ‘80s by DJ Short, and today it’s used by seed banks and breeders across the world; winning the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2000.
This strain puts users in a relaxed, happy, and sleepy state while being surrounded by the aroma of fresh blueberries.
Haze is an oldie but goodie dates all the way back to the 1960’s and is used today to create a long list of hybrid strains because of its energizing and positive cerebral effects. It smells of a sweet, earthy, citrus that balances perfectly with the sweet blueberry strain.
Appearance, Aroma, and Flavor
Blueberry Haze produces medium to large, pine-green, frosty, dense buds that are covered in bright orange trichomes that are found in a small popcorn-sized cluster. If you’re growing your own, you’ll see a little hint of a bluish-purple hue ribboning throughout the green leaves.
The buds themselves are very sticky, so you’ll want to employ the help from your grinder before loading or rolling this strain.
In terms of taste and smell — Blueberry Haze doesn’t need much of an explanation thanks to its cleverly thought out moniker. Users should taste a sweet blueberry or berry flavor mixed with a slight woody smokiness with an occasionally skunkiness seeping through.
Blueberry Haze users’ highs will no doubtfully differ from each other because everyone’s body processes and digests things differently be it food, alcohol, or weed. That said, since this is a Sativa dominant strain, initially, you should feel a strong head high, followed by a slow creeping body high.
However, some get a stronger Indica effect, and the thought of getting off the couch sounds like the hardest thing in the world. It likely won’t cause you to pass out, but your limbs will get heavy; basically, it will turn you into a couch-locked sloth.
One thing all users universally experience is the elevation in mood. Blueberry Haze takes the blues away by putting you in a euphoric haze.
Before you dive in we recommend figuring out if you feel the Indica or Sativa effects more, and what recreational activities are best paired with this strain. That said, Blueberry Haze is not a strain to try before giving your best man or maid of honor speech at your siblings’ wedding, but it does compliment social activities nicely if you feel the Sativa affects more than the Indica. Aside from experimenting with Blueberry Haze beforehand, you should try out different doses because one hit could pump you up — but five hits could knock you out.
If you’re one of the lucky ones that get energized on this strain, try pairing Blueberry Haze with some fun social outings including:
For those who get a little more sloth-like on this strain, the following activities may be more suitable for you:
The amount of THC contained in Blueberry Haze makes it a great option for those who are looking for relief from physical and mental pain because of the balance between Indica and Sativa.
The Blueberry Haze marijuana strain has been reported to be useful for symptom relief for some of the following ailments:
Mild to severe, acute or chronic — this strain has reportedly been effective in easing all types of physical pain. Most severe cases would benefit most from high potency edibles or concentrates to maximize the anti-inflammatory properties of THC.
Depression, Stress, and Anxiety
Because this is a Sativa leaning hybrid, it’s a no-brainer as to why Blueberry Haze is so effective at battling stress, anxiety, and depression. Users instantaneously feel a wave of euphoria and optimism that rolls into a nice relaxing body high that is provided by the Indica in this strain.
The Blueberry Haze strain offers several benefits to cancer patients with its ability to knock out nausea and insomnia — which helps with nourishment, rest, and recovery.
Additionally, THC levels in this strain give cancer patients a mental outlet where they can let go and forget about their diagnosis and just enjoy the feeling of being high.
Negative Side Effects
As you know, this is a balanced strain, so the paranoia that can accompany some Sativa strains should be balanced out by the Indica, however, for some, it has triggered slight feelings of paranoia. The good news is those feelings went away as they came down from their high. Remember, it’s impossible to overdose or die from ingesting too much weed.
The most commonly reported negative side effects were, of course, the cliche dry eyes and mouth that accompany all strains of marijuana, but the fix is simple: eye drops and water.
While the Blueberry Haze strain can be grown outdoors, indoors, or in a greenhouse — it fairs the best when it’s grown outdoors in a mediterranean-like environment. If you’re growing it indoors, making sure it has adequate light and proper nutrients is imperative. However, we don’t recommend this strain for new growers because of the care and space it requires.
For indoor grows, you can expect a 9 to 10-week flowering time, which is a pretty standard time frame for most marijuana plants — yielding about 11 to 12 ounces per square meter. For outside grow ops, Blueberry Haze strains are ready for harvest in October and produces a larger crop of about 16 ounces per square meter.

- OG Diesel
- Monster Cookies
- Ginger Punch
- OG Diesel Kush

As always, before you buy anything it’s always a good idea to read the reviews first because they’re a first-hand account about what to expect — the negatives and the positives. This is why we scoured the web with some real user reviews about the Blueberry Haze marijuana strain:
“This has been my favorite recently. I get giggly and focused, relaxed and super chill. Most of my experience with cannabis has left me feeling paranoid and anxious, but that’s definitely not the case with this strain. I did have a bit of dry mouth, but hardly noticeable.”
“I got an eighth of this from Grow Life in CO Springs. I wish I had gotten more before they run out. Very pleasant strain and a nice strain to roll a joint with and then just sit down and relax and maybe even take a nap after a long day of work. Grow Life’s blueberry haze was a very terpene rich flower with red and orange hairs and very frosted bud. The flower smelled like gassy blueberry and the smoke had hints of grape on the tongue. Great for those who love berry and grape terps. On the first few tokes I started feeling the Blueberry headband effect of a warmth surrounding my forehead into pure bliss and relaxation. I wonder if this Blueberry Haze from Grow Life s actually Blueberry Headband x Haze. Anyways, This is a really good strain for those with ADHD and need to calm down and focus, it helped a lot with my anxiety and fatigue after a long day of work and errands. A very heavy indica body high alleviates all of my chronic pain and spinal pain and allows me to sit and lay down and relax. A nice napping strain to fall to sleep with. This helped my bipolar mania calm down to a great degree and I feel more sedated, calmer, normal. I get less talky but we talk too much during hypomania anyways. A+++ Recommend this for people like me.”
“ This strain helped so much with a fibro flair coming on!!!”

Users that are on the more sensitive side of the THC spectrum may want to opt for a less potent strain like ACDC, or you could always combine it with some high-quality CBD oil — which would round out any negative sensations brought on by the THC.
Overall, Blueberry Haze would be ideal for moderate and advanced users on the hunt for a sweet and fruity marijuana strain that isn’t super offensive in terms of skunkiness and odor. This bold but soothing bud is a must-have for both Sativa and Indica lovers alike because it offers the uplifting cerebral high of a Sativa followed by a calming body high of an Indica.
