On the terpene front, Blue Crack maintains an elevated Linalool content of 2.28% while showing only trace amounts of α-Pinene, Terpinolene, and Limonene.
Appearance: Blue Crack is a kaleidoscopic trip into the mysterious. A visually stimulating strain that’s wrapped in multi-hued greens and oranges, Blue Crack overwhelms the senses as hints of bluish-purple calyxes intermix with its olive-green cohorts. The combination of her amber and orange pistils create a tapestry of psychotropic compounds. Swollen and ready for smoking, the cannabinoid-rich trichomes on this strain provide an abundant source of relief.
Consistency: Blue Crack’s buds are like a sticky piece of discarded bubble gum. Small and dense, its flowers are relatively compact. Sticky yet manageable, Blue Crack has roots in both the Sativa and Indica worlds. Relatively pliable, these malleable buds generally don’t require tools (read: grinders or scissors) when being dismembered for your smoking pleasure.
Scent: Follow your nose to Blue Crack. Berries, musky haze, and sweet flowers – Blue Crack is a veritable smorgasbord of intriguing aromas. Be careful, as the smell will linger post-smoke, as will the sour tinge. If you are a scent connoisseur, Blue Crack is the strain for you.
Taste: Similar to its scent, Blue Crack tastes like freshly-picked berries on the first inhale, and like the natural earthiness of a plant when exhaled. Beyond the fruity overtones lies spices and the skunky sting known to accompany most pungent strains.
Effect: Be prepared for a fast mental adjustment. Blue Crack hits your head quickly and provides a jolt of energy. The uplifting sensation continues throughout the high and allows you to operate as your normally would, even motivating you to complete chores and finish the jobs on your plate. Think lightning in a bottle.
Strain Background: Blue Crack absorbs her heady attributes from her parental lineage – Green Crack and Blue Dream. One of the more popular strains in 2015, Blue Dream is a cross of DJ Short’s Blueberry and a spaced-out Sativa Haze. Recognized as having medicinal properties, Blue Dream has been utilized by patients to quell a host of anxiety-related conditions. As for the Green Crack side of this equation, its lineage is strongly debated. Thought to be originally bred in Athens, Georgia, Green Crack is a descendant of Skunk #1 and is believed to have some Hybrid Afghani Indica landrace genetics. Collectively creating Blue Crack, this strain has some rather historic genes.
Medical Uses: Genetically overlapped by her Sativa/Indica downline, Blue Crack is known for helping individuals overcome unrelenting muscle aches and discomfort, depression, and anxiety. Generally considered a daytime strain, Blue Crack works great at motivating the lethargic in the late afternoon, right around 4:20 p.m.
