About Blueberry Yum Yum
"All the different kinds and other flavors, they don't mean a thang,” raps Ludacris on his trippy 2004 track, "Blueberry Yum Yum." Although it's unclear whether this strain was named after the song or vice-versa, Blueberry Yum Yum has nevertheless gained plenty of admirers for its tasty, all-purpose qualities. This bud is a well-balanced hybrid with an instantly appealing smell and taste. Crossed from staple Blueberry and South African landrace sativa Durban Poison, this strain has a potent, balanced high that backs up its initial bag appeal. Its THC has been measured at between 15% and 25%
Blueberry Yum Yum has relatively small flowers that adhere in a spade-like shape, tapering from a broad base down to a pointed tip. These buds have a somewhat loose structure -- the ragged, fluffy-looking leaves are not densely packed and can be easily torn away from their central stems. These leaves themselves are a dark shade of mossy green, although certain phenotypes may express some subtle shades of brick red. Dark orange and brown pistils wind their way through these flowers. Finally, although they don’t appear to be as coated with trichomes as many other strains, Blueberry Yum Yum’s dried flowers are still very sticky and typically need a grinder to be broken up.
When Blueberry Yum Yum’s flowers are properly cured, a fruity molasses comes through on initial inspection, likely courtesy of parent strain Blueberry. There are also some fresh notes of pine and herbs hanging out underneath, making the overall impression reminiscent of Haze varieties. If these buds are broken apart or ground up, there’s a hint of skunk. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Blueberry Yum Yum burns with a pleasantly smooth and easily palatable smoke. On the exhale, this smoke has a sweet aftertaste with distinct pine and berry flavors that complement each other well.
With a genetic profile that includes both indica and sativa landrace strains, Blueberry Yum Yum offers the full gamut of physical and psychoactive effects. The strain’s effects manifest quickly, exerting a pressure around the smoker’s eyes and temples. Once they adjust to this strange sensation, users describe a warm, almost euphoric feeling. This sense of emotional well-being is soon accompanied by an uptick in cerebral thinking, marked by quickly moving and freely-associative thoughts. This heady mindset can be enjoyed passively or more actively put to work in creative pursuits. Blueberry Yum Yum also has a mild body buzz that may set in as the high progresses. Although smokers are unlikely to experience full-on couch lock, muscular tension may decrease and deep breathing may happen more easily. Because of this holistic balance between body and mind, users may also enjoy activities that employ both physical and mental exertion, like light exercise, video games, and even sex. Blueberry Yum Yum’s mostly buzzy, head-focused effects make it more appropriate for daytime use; it can be very enjoy as a wake-and-bake treat.
Blueberry Yum Yum’s versatile effects may also be of use to medical cannabis patients. Its cerebral intensity can help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain focus on single tasks. Its balanced, easygoing mood can also temporarily relieve the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Physiologically speaking, Blueberry Yum Yum can soothe deep-seated aches and pains as well as minor irritations like headaches. Because its thought patterns may lead to paranoia in certain circumstances, this strain is not recommended for those who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Seeds of Blueberry Yum Yum are not widely available; as such, prospective home growers must obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants in order to grow clones. Blueberry Yum Yum can be cultivated indoors or outdoors and is considered a good option for novice growers, as it is naturally resistant to adverse conditions. Its plants are more indica in stature, with relatively bushy, squat growth. Because of its tendency to grow horizontal branches, indoor growers will want to ensure plenty of room for the cultivation of multiple plants. At flowering time, plants have a lower than average yield.
Blueberry Yum Yum’s buzzy energy and mind-expanding prop make it great for accomplishing work, whether it’s analytical or creative. This is also a great strain to break out at parties -- but be sure to bring enough to share, as this bud’s fruity odor is sure to turn some heads.
