About Blue Power
Blue Power is an indica-dominant hybrid that allows for some therapeutic lounging. This well-rounded strain comes from a complicated genetic background: it is the product of Sour Double, Master Kush, The White, and Blue Moonshine. It was created by Vegas-based producers Sin City Seeds, the same group responsible for strains like Happy Nightmare. Blue Powerâ€™s rich lineage results in a stoney body high and a robust, fulfilling flavor profile. Blue Powerâ€™s THC content has been measured at between 18% and an impressive 27%.
Sin Cityâ€™s Blue Power makes its bag appeal known right away. The medium-sized flowers show off distinctively tapered, spade-like shapes. Despite a psychoactive profile that leans more indica, these buds appear characteristically sativa, with fluffy, piecey leaves that can be easily torn away from their central stems. The leaves themselves are a vibrant shade of spring green and are shot through with fiery orange pistils. Some phenotypes of Blue Power also exhibit shades of deep blue and purple -- these hues come about when high concentration of anthocyanin pigments in the strainâ€™s genetics are excited by colder than average temperatures during the growing process. Finally, notoriously sticky parent strain The White passes on its penchant for trichome production: Blue Powerâ€™s flowers are coated with cloudy white resin.
Blue Power has an aroma that stands up to its visual appeal. The cured buds reek of sharp lemon and berry, along with some woodsy hints of pine. On closer inspection, there are also some astringent chemical notes, possibly passed on from Sour Double. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking open these flowers yields an earthy, hashy bouquet. When combusted, Blue Power burns with a smooth and easy smoke that tastes like pine and lemon with an ammonia tang; the overall impression is that of a scented cleaning product. Those looking to keep their smoking discreet should bear in mind that Blue Power can be particularly pungent. Finally, any grape flavors associated with this strain can be considered a coincidence to its purple coloring -- while Blue Powerâ€™s appearance is determined by pigmentation, its aroma is dictated by compounds called terpenes.
Blue Powerâ€™s high is something of a creeper and can take several minutes after ingestion before its effects can be fully detected. Smokers will know itâ€™s working as a tingly body high sets in, working its way from the temples down thru the neck and core. As they feel themselves relax, users may seek refuge in the closest comfortable surroundings. Nevertheless, Blue Power is not without some mental stimulation. This strain can exert a sustained feeling of focus that may put its fans in a creative mindset. Alternatively, it can provide the perfect backdrop for enjoying an engaging movie or a trippy album. As time wears on, Blue Power comes with an increasing likelihood of couch-lock -- and in the right set and setting, sleep. As such, this knockout of a strain is best enjoyed in the late afternoon or early evening.
Medical cannabis patients may also benefit from Blue Powerâ€™s thorough, almost narcotic physical relaxation. The strain can alleviate both temporary and chronic pain; its anti-inflammatory effects may also relieve annoyances like headaches and nausea. As noted, those suffering from insomnia can find a deep, restful sleep if they consume Blue Power in high enough doses. Because it doesnâ€™t come with the kind of intense, recursive thinking that can lead to paranoia, Blue Power may be a good choice for those who suffer from panic or anxiety.
Sin City has made seeds of Blue Power available for sale online; consumers may also find seeds in several brick-and-mortar locations throughout Southern California and some of Western Europe. The strain can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Blue Power flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and offers only a low to moderate yield of about 23 to 37 grams (.8 to 1.3 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
Better suited to powering down than powering up, Blue Power is a gift to indica lovers. Its unique flavor profile also makes it a great choice for enjoying in social gatherings.
