About Dream Police
Not to be confused with the single by the band Cheap Trick, Dream Police is a well-balanced hybrid. The creation of California’s Crazy Diamond Seeds Company, the strain is a cross between perennial favorite AK-47 and Dreamy Bubbles, itself a cross between Blueberry and Afghani. It gives users a fragrant smoke that blooms into a long-lasting and well-rounded high. The strain’s THC content has been measured at between 12% and 18%.
Dream Police is distinguished by solid flowers that range from medium to large in size with a rounded, bullet-like formation. The buds have a seemingly hybridized structure, with a dense, indica-typical core, but leaves that spiral loosely outward at their fringes in a more sativa fashion. The leaves themselves are a yellowish green and are twisted through with curly orange pistils. Finally, resinous white trichomes cover the chunky nuggets, accounting for their psychoactivity.
It’s clear that Dream Police is descended from Blueberry, as its flowers offer up an unmistakable blueberry scent on initial inspection. A second whiff picks up on some notes of citrus as well. Grinding up these flowers yields an herbal and slightly spicy scent that may be familiar to fans of grandparent strain Afghani. Dream Police gives off a very smooth and palatable smoke when combusted. On the exhale, this smoke tastes fruity and a bit toasty.
Dream Police tends to strike the smoker relatively quickly, exerting a headrush that may come with symptoms like a faint pressure in the temples or an increase in salivation. As they get used to these odd sensations, consumers may find that their thoughts have taken on an elevated quality, with certain thoughts seeming to take on a new intensity. Users may also feel like their ideas are jumping from one to the next in free association. This kind of activated mental state can be a good way to accomplish detailed, task-based work as well as more creative, open-ended projects. Its tendency to amplify smokers’ internal monologues can also have the effect of sparking free-flowing conversation, even when shared among new acquaintances.
As Dream Police’s high wears on, layers of progressive relaxation begin to reveal themselves. Smokers may feel their limbs and eyelids weighed down in equal measured as their bodies begin to un-tense. Although an increase in dosage may just knock active and mobile consumers off their feet, Dream Police’s body high isn’t typically enough to totally incapacitate them. Instead, the strain’s eventual combination of mental and physical stimulation makes it a great way to enhance activities that involve full brain and body coordination -- including gaming, exercising, and given the right conditions, sex. Smokers who are feeling less productive, though, can simply enjoy this therapeutic high while kicked back after a long day or week of work. Because of its gradual descent into mellow relaxation, Dream Police is recommended for toking on between late afternoon and early evening.
Dream Police’s multilayered effects lend it a few applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its cerebral onset can be a great way for those with attention deficit disorders to sustain focus on complicated tasks. Its upbeat, mood-altering properties may temporarily improve the symptom of stress and depression as well. Physically speaking, the strain’s deep relaxation can take the sting out of harsh, chronic pain as well as inflammation-related discomforts like headaches and nausea. Dream Police can also be a solid appetite stimulant for those dealing with diminished hunger. Because of its strong, recursive patterns of thinking, this strain is not recommended for patients who are prone to paranoia or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of Dream Police are available directly through Crazy Diamond. Once obtained, the strain can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation requires a hot and humid climate. Plants tend to grow short and bushy, maxing out at about three feet in height. Dream Police flowers within a short 8 to 9 weeks and offers a relatively modest yield of about 37 to 42 grams (or 1.3 to 1.5 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
Dream Police is a fun smoke whether you’re enjoying it alone or in the company of some good friends. Its rich flavor profile also makes it a good choice for terpene connoisseurs.
