Blucifer is a sativa-dominant hybrid with serious bag appeal. The creation of Terraform Genetics, this strain is a cross between Conspiracy Kush and the ubiquitous Blue Dream. The resulting bud has colorful, fragrant flowers that provide a mostly active, mentally-engaged high. This strain’s THC content has been measured at between 16% and 25%.
Although they’re only of small to average size, Blucifer's flowers catch the eye right away with their multicolored leaves. The leaves are a mottled mix of green and purple, with the latter hue coming from high concentrations of the pigment anthocyanin in the strain’s genetics. These eye-catching buds, which have a fluffy sativa-inflected structure, are also threaded through with bright orange pistils and are coated in cloudy, translucent trichomes.
When properly cured, flowers of Blucifer give off the unmistakable scent of blueberries. On closer inspection, there are also some herbal, almost medicinal scents. Grinding up or breaking open the buds gives off a pungent skunkiness. When inhaled, Blucifer is very smooth and easy on the lungs. On the exhale, the smoke tastes fruity with a sour-sweet funk.
Blucifer tends to make itself known shortly after users have toked on its pleasant, fragrant smoke. It announces itself with an increase in blood flow to the head, with an attendant sensation like a feeling of restriction around the eyes and temples. A slight flush in the cheeks is also possible. After adjusting to these tics, consumers may detect a change in their ways of thinking -- certain ideas may take on a new dynamic or intensity, while new connections may spring up between seemingly unrelated concepts. This cerebral mindset makes Blucifer a great way to sustain work on complicated tasks and problem-solving scenarios. It can also help facilitate creative, freewheeling projects for brainstorming sessions.
Around the same time that they notice this change in cognition, smokers may feel palpable physical relaxation. A tingle that originates at the back of the neck will spread down through the spine and core, loosening any muscular tension. Users may find themselves able to breathe more deeply and easily and, if seated, may easily begin to feel like they’re melting into their surroundings. While consumers may still be able to coherently think and converse at this point, they may have significantly less motivation to accomplish anything too ambitious. Instead, Blucifer’s latter end is better for zoning out with a moody playlist or for playing some low-key board games with friends. Additionally, the strain’s eventual combination of mental and physical stimulation translates into an intensification of activities that involve complex coordination like dancing, exercise, and, given the right company, sex. Because of its gradual descent into daydreaming and sleepiness, Blucifer is recommended for late afternoon or evening consumption when it can be fully appreciated.
Blucifer’s deeply relaxing effects can be put to use by medical cannabis patients as well. Its early tuned-in mental state can help those with attention deficit disorders to stay focused on a single task. Meanwhile, the strain's mellow euphoria can temporarily relieve the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. Blucifer may also reduce physical chronic and disease-related physical pain; anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, can take care of irritations like nausea and headaches. Because its mental effects are tempered by some physical calm, Blucifer may be a good option for patients who have a low THC tolerance or who are prone to panic.
Seeds of Blucifer are not available for sale online. Instead, prospective home growers should seek out clippings from mature, healthy plants of the strain that can be grown as clones. Once obtained, Blucifer can be cultivated indoors or out, although success outdoors calls for a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Gardeners looking to enhance the purple coloring of these flowers should expose their crops to cold (but not freezing) nighttime temperatures just before flowering begins. Blucifer tends to flower within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors. It’s also known to be a very pungent grow, and indoor gardeners trying to maintain discretion should invest in odor-control measures like carbon air filters.
Blucifer’s dynamic effects make it a must-try for fans of its well-balanced and tasty parent strain Blue Dream. This bud is the perfect way to wind down a long day or week of work.
