About Blue Magic
Blue Magic is a mostly sativa hybrid with a mysterious background. With no known breeder, this potent strain may be a distinct phenotype of the uber-popular Blue Dream, itself known to be a particularly well-balanced hybrid. Blue Magic offers a powerful cerebral kick that eventually tapers off into a more even-tempered high. With a dynamic, crowd-pleasing taste, though, this strain is sure to find loyal followers regardless of its psychoactive profile. Blue Magic’s THC content has been measured at between 15% and 23%.
Blue Magic is marked by small to medium-sized flowers that have a slightly tapered, pinecone-like shape. Despite the strain’s predominantly sativa effects, its buds cling together in a dense, indica-typical structure. The leaves are a vibrant shade of emerald green and are shot through with hairy pistils that range in color from pink and red to orange. Notably, Blue Magic seems not to have inherited grandparent strain Blueberry’s high concentration of anthocyanin pigments -- as a result, it’s rare to find flowers of Blue Magic that exhibit streaks of deep blue or purple. Blue Magic does have plenty of milky white trichomes, though, giving it a very resinous texture and making it difficult to break up without a quality grinder.
When properly cured, Blue Magic’s overall aroma is similar to that of its forebear Blue Dream. Tropical blueberry notes predominate, creating a sweet and tangy first impression. On closer inspection, flowers also have musky, herbal hints of wood and tobacco, likely the influence of grandparent strain Haze. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking open the flowers yields some sour odors. Blue Magic gives off a smooth and palatable smoke that tastes fruity and spicy on the exhale and leaves behind a creamy, buttery mouthfeel.
Blue Magic’s high takes hold quickly, arresting smokers with its bracing mental energy. Shortly after toking, users may feel a concerted pressure behind the eyelids, accompanied by an amplification of the senses. Certain sounds or sights may seem more dynamic and deserving of attention; visual distortions are also commonly reported, giving the initial high a slightly trippy edge. As users adjust to this altered perception, they’re more able to harness the strain’s thoughtful energy toward productivity. Blue Magic allows users to maintain focus on tasks ranging from tackling unanswered emails to cleaning a long-neglected bathroom. As these sativa properties trigger frequent thought associations, the high may veer into overactive “mind race” territory for some. That said, Blue Magic is not entirely without physical relaxation to provide a counterbalance to these mental effects. As the high wears on, the early sativa power decrescendos into a lull of bodily calm. Although full-on couch-lock is uncommon, many users describe an increased ability to relax and unwind. Blue Magic’s energetic onset makes it a great choice for wake-and-bake or afternoon use, but not the best option for enjoying before bed, as it may leave smokers active and wired.
Blue Magic’s mental stimulation may also have application for medical cannabis patients. Its sustained sense of focus can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders. The strain may also help patients with mild to moderate stress or depression to spend their time more mindfully and presently. Finally, some anti-inflammatory effects can take care of minor everyday annoyances like headaches or nausea. Because its cerebral activity can translate into paranoia for some, Blue Magic is not recommended for those who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Since no commercial growers have claimed responsibility for Blue Magic’s creation or made seeds available for sale, prospective growers must obtain clippings that can be grown as clones. Its Although there is little information available on best practices for cultivating Blue Magic specifically, we know that the closely-related Blue Dream can be grown indoors or outdoors in warm, semi-humid climates. We also know that Blue Dream grows short and bushy, requires frequent pruning, and flowers within 10 weeks when grown indoors.
While Blue Magic’s sativa force makes it great for getting creative or analytical work done, its also a great way to inspire active conversation among friends. If you do bring this potent strain out in public, be sure to bring enough to share -- its dynamic scent is sure to turn some heads.
