About Blue Moonshine

Blue Moonshine is an almost entirely Indica hybrid and has the unique distinction of being bred entirely from landrace strains. With roots in Afghani as well as Thai and Mexican landraces, Blue Moonshine has some surprising botanical and psychoactive properties that it’s inherited from these far-flung endemic strains. Though it’s considered a powerful sedative indica, Blue Moonshine’s THC content has been measured at only around 13%. 

Blue Moonshine buds are dense and can be very hard when cured. As with the strain’s original Afghani ancestor, trichomes are plentiful and the buds have a caked, resinous texture. Notes of blueberry and molasses are prominent, with a spicy scent coming through after grinding or breaking apart. Blue Moonshine has the thick, harsh smoke prized by lovers of Hash varieties, and inhaling can be harsh and cough-inducing. On the exhale, some users report the fermented taste of sour mash - a possible inspiration for the “Moonshine” in this strain’s name.

Blue Moonshine has an intense narcotic high with tranquilizing effects that permeate both body and mind. The initial effects can be heady, marked by giddiness and distraction. Gradually, a strong sense of calm spreads throughout the body and couchlock is common. The heavy sedative properties can sometimes induce the sensation of numbness or of disconnection from the body. This sense of deep relaxation can be accompanied by increased awareness - creativity in particular may be stimulated. Blue Moonshine’s high is described as lasting longer than average, making it an attractive option for nighttime use. Medically, this strain’s general potency on both body and mind can have benefits for insomnia, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and appetite stimulation.

Blue Moonshine’s pure indica heritage means that plants are shorter – growers report plants reaching between three to five feet – and easily grown indoors. Plants will flower between 50 and 60 days. By harvest, there is a moderate to high yield of buds, and a high leaf-to-calyx ratio. 

Blue Moonshine is a great example of diversified genetics yielding a desirable new variety. Overall, this strain a uniquely sensory experience, from the complex smell and flavor of its buds to the well-rounded, persistent high.
