About Blue Satellite
Blue Satellite -- not to be confused with related strain Blue Satellite #2 -- is a high-flying sativa with long-lasting effects. This strain is derived from a sativa phenotype of perennial favorite Blueberry and from flavorful Shiskaberry. The result is a bud with predominantly cerebral effects and a distinctive, complex flavor that may be an acquired taste for some. An excellent daytime strain, Blue Satellite’s THC content has been measured at between 15% and 22%.
Blue Satellite’s impressive flowers are distinguished by their shape and size. Ranging from medium to large, these buds cling together in distinct spade-like shapes, tapering down from a broad base into a pointed tip. Despite the strain’s sativa leanings, its flowers have an indica-type bud structure, densely-packed, with their leaves curling tightly inward toward their central stems. Finally, translucent white trichomes dot the inner and outer nooks and crannies of these solid nuggets, accounting for their high psychoactivity.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Blue Satellite draws from the genetics of parent strain Blueberry to offer the strong, unmistakable odor of blueberries. Unlike DJ Short’s more common cut of Blueberry, though, Blue Satellite also has a strong chemical scent lurking underneath, with notes of ammonia and pencil shavings. Meanwhile, grinding up these dense buds releases some hints of pepper and spice. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Blue Satellite burns with a smooth and easily palatable smoke. This smoke tastes like blueberries and citrus with a lingering chemical aftertaste.
Blue Satellite wastes no time, striking the user right away with its sativa force. At first, consumers feel a pressure around the eyes and temples, as well as some flushing in the cheeks. Smokers are typically quickly enveloped in a newfound cerebral energy, with their minds fixated on certain ideas or concepts that may not otherwise seem interesting. Many users may also have a freely-flowing internal monologue the jumps from one topic to the next. Although this kind of hyperactive thinking may be anxiety-inducing under the wrong circumstances, it can prove very useful for powering through a long to-do list. Blue Satellite’s focus can easily apply itself to complex work-related tasks; alternatively, it can add some background energy to mundane jobs like cleaning or running errands. This strain is also said to have a freewheeling euphoric energy that can illuminate social situations, sparking easy conversation and camaraderie. As the high wears on, a subtle body stone creeps in, providing slight relief for any tense or sore muscles. Blue Satellite is unlikely to induce couchlock, though -- in fact, the strain’s physical and mental effects combine to produce a holistic, therapeutic vibe. If users are so inclined, they can harness this energy to engage in activities that involve both body and mind, like exercise, dancing, and sex. Because it is more energetic than sedative, Blue Satellite is best consumed during the day; it’s also very enjoyable as a wake-and-bake treat.
Blue Satellite may also have several benefits for medical cannabis patients. Its focus can aid concentration for those with attention deficit disorders. It may also provide temporary improvement in some symptoms of mild to moderate depression. Physiologically, Blue Satellite soothes aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to disorders like lupus and arthritis. As noted, the onset of this high’s cerebral effects can be overwhelming; Blue Satellite is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Seeds of Blue Satellite do not appear to be available for sale online. Instead, prospective growers should obtain clippigns of mature plants from a trusted source in order to foster “clones.” The plants can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Blue Satellite’s sativa influence suggest that its plants grow particularly tall and may require pruning. These sativa roots also suggest a longer flowering time of 9 weeks or longer.
Better for active pursuits than for kicking back at home, Blue Satellite is certain to launch its consumers into new orbits of cerebral energy.
