About Disney Blue
Disney Blue is a flavor-focused strain with a double dose of Blueberry in its genetics. This balanced hybrid is a combination of DJ Short’s cut of Blueberry and its descendant, the uber-popular Blue Dream. Originally bred by Southern California’s Greenleaf Genetics Collective, Disney Blue offers bold fruity flavors.
Disney Blue’s magical flowers stand out with a relatively large size. The dark green leaves twist tightly inward, making for dense flowers that have a characteristically indica appearance. These leaves contrast with their vibrant orange hairs (which are actually pistils, meant to catch pollen from would-be fertilizing male plants) and their translucent white trichomes, which account for the strain’s psychoactivity.
When trimmed and cured, flowers of Disney Blue carry the unmistakable blueberry scent associated with both of its parent strains. A closer whiff may also pick up on some tropical, citrus-tinged aromas. When it is ground up or broken apart, though, Disney Blue releases a more objectionable odor with sour and gamey hints of skunk. This strain’s fruity character becomes more intense when its flowers are burnt, giving off a floral and smooth smoke. On the exhale, this smoke tastes fruity with a bit of a tang.
Disney Blue’s high doesn’t take long before hitting smokers with its arresting effects. At first, the strain may lead to some twitching feelings around the eyes and temples and some flushing in the cheeks. As these sensations become more familiar, though, users may notice that their thoughts have taken on a sped-up and more intense character; concepts or ideas might seem more significant than they ordinarily would, while categorical and freely-associative thinking is also common. This plugged-in mindset can allow for extended work on detailed tasks as well as creative pursuits like writing or crafting. It can also provide some much-needed entertainment for otherwise menial chores like doing the laundry or cleaning.
As this high wears on, its physical effects begin to emerge. Within an hour or so, eyelids may begin to droop and limbs feel heavier as Disney Blue’s indica side exerts some serious relaxation. While this feeling may not be so strong as to pin smokers down with full-on couchlock, it may take away some earlier motivation to get work done. Instead, this later phase of the high is better suited to a passive binge-watching session or a meal with some friends. Additionally, Disney Blue’s eventual combination of mental and physical stimulation makes it a great way to enhance activities that require both brain and body, like dancing (or, given the right company, sex). Because of its step down from buzzy energy into mellow sedation, Disney Blue is recommended for consumption later on in the day, when it can be fully savored.
Disney Blue’s multilayered effects can also have benefits for medical cannabis patients. The strain’s ability to enhance mood can temporarily improve the symptoms of stress and depression. Additionally, its initially cerebral energy can help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain concentration. Its physical benefits include an ability to relieve pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like arthritis of fibromyalgia. Its ability to induce the munchies, meanwhile, makes it an effective appetite stimulant for patients who are struggling with hunger due to medication or harsh treatments like chemotherapy. Because its early phases can bring about overly intense, paranoid ways of thinking, Disney Blue is not a good option for patients who have a low THC tolerance or who are prone to panic.
Seeds of Disney Blue are not available for sale online. Those intent on growing this variety should seek out clippings from mature, healthy plants. These clippings bud can be fostered as genetically identical “clones.” Although there is little information available regarding best practices for cultivating this specific strain, we know that like many hybrids, Disney Blue can be grown either indoors or out. The indica-leaning characteristics of its flowers also suggest that these crops grow relatively squat and bushy and have a shorter flowering time of anywhere between 7 and 9 weeks.
Not as kid-friendly as its name might suggest, Disney Blue is an excellent all-purpose hybrid for eligible adults. Its tropical fruity scent may also be of interest to terpene connoisseurs.
