Created by Barney's Farm, Crimea Blue is Indica-dominant but tends to deliver a mind-altering Sativa-type high, often followed by "couch-lock" and sleep.
The story of this strain begins with a landrace hybrid mother found in the Ukraine, a short plant that flowers fast and can be great for making hash. Crossing the Ukrainian landrace with a male Blueberry from Dutch Passion, the breeders created a strain that is almost tasteless when inhaled. On exhale, the flavors of Crimea Blue come to life, tasting like cheese, sour fruits, spices, and hash. This strain can have as much as 18% THC and over 1% CBD.
In smaller doses, this strain's effects can be uplifting and energizing rather than lethargic, but Crimea Blue should still be used later in the day. It may help alleviate the symptoms of chronic stress, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and depression. It is also helpful to people dealing with chronic pain and may help with migraines, glaucoma, and inflammation.
Rarely breaking 70 centimeters in height, Crimea Blue can be great for the Sea of Green or Screen of Green growing methods. Pretty easy to grow, this strain can thrive both indoors and out. Despite the short height, the plants may produce up to 450 grams per square meter after flowering for eight to ten weeks. When grown outdoors, Crimea Blue can be expected to be done around the end of September.
