People who have chronic fatigue, depression or a lack of appetite have described blue dream as having therapeutic effects that improve these conditions. People have also described it as relieving chronic pain and migraines.
Blue dream is another hybrid strain of weed that is slightly sativa -dominant. It gives an energetic cerebral high that can increase motivation and heighten focus. Some people describe it as having relaxing and pain-relieving effects.
C. indica produces large amounts of THC and low levels of CBD and, therefore, it is considered a strong weed. It tends to be very relaxing or sedating, sometimes making people who consume it want to just hang out on the couch. For this reason, it is commonly used at night before going to bed. It creates more of a “body high” due to its relaxing effects.
The strongest types of weed tend to have a higher ratio of THC to CBD, meaning there is a lot of THC but not much CBD. When the ratios are more even, CBD can counteract the effects of THC . Therefore, the level of both chemicals in a strain of weed determines what effect it has on a person.
Its name comes from the fact that the origin of the strain is unknown, making it like a dream. It has a sweet taste that some describe as similar to blueberries and sugar.

In November, the City Council unanimously approved a plan for a sprawling facility on the edge of town with a capacity to grow 150,000 cannabis plants and employ 300 people.
“I’ve got to be candid with you,” said Ms. Winger, a retired schoolteacher. “I would have liked something like a sunflower festival or a lemon pie festival.
There are still members of the community who believe that marijuana is the “devil’s lettuce,” Mr. Strack said. But they are increasingly hard to find.
Donna Winger, a former member of the planning commission, counts herself as one of the converts to the notion that cannabis could help lift the city’s fortunes, even though she still harbors hope that the city can find a more “healthy and family-oriented” way to market itself.
For decades, the residents of Weed, a California lumber town an hour from the Oregon border, have felt like the butt of jokes, exasperated from the repetition of the Daily Explanation: No, the town is not named for marijuana but a local 19th-century timber baron, Abner Weed. For years, the town rejected proposals to leverage the name and allow the sale of marijuana.
