About Dreamer's Glass
Dreamer’s Glass is a potent, mystically-named hybrid with calming, well-balanced effects. A cross between the Grateful Dead-inspired Casey’s Dream and fruity Glass Slipper, Dreamer’s Glass’ breeders and place of origin are not documented. Nevertheless, this strain impresses users with its soothing blend of cerebral and relaxing effects. Its loud and long-lasting high may even impress cannabis veterans. This bud’s THC content has been measured at between 14% and 22%.
This strain makes its quality known upfront with large, well-formed flowers. The rounded buds maintain a solid and characteristically indica structure, with their small leaves curling tightly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a mix of dark and light shades of green, although some phenotypes of Dreamer’s Glass can boast patches of purple. These surprising hues come about when pigments called anthocyanins in the strain’s genetics are activated by cold weather during the growing process. Finally, translucent white trichomes coat the buds, giving them a very sticky texture and a snowy appearance.
At first, Dreamer’s Glass leaves a dank and musky impression, with notes of damp earth. On closer inspection, there are also some slight accents of pine. Grinding up these tight buds gives off some of the fruitiness of Glass Slipper (which has Pineapple in its background). When combusted, this strain burns with a thick, acrid smoke that can taste funky and slightly sweet on the exhale, somewhat like fermented vegetal matter. Smokers trying to maintain discretion should take necessary precautions, as this can be a very pungent strain
Dreamer’s Glass has a high that settles in soon after consumers have finished toking. Initial effects may be detected as a throbbing or pressure around the temples and eyes. Smokers may also be able to discern a change in their thinking, with ideas jumping around in rapid free association and sometimes stopping to rest on a concept that may not otherwise strike them as interesting. While this sensation can be overwhelming for the uninitiated, it can be a good work aid for those who feel inclined toward productivity. Many users also describe certain psychedelic properties affecting their sense, including a distorted sense of depth perception and a feeling of time passing more slowly. Such trippy effects can be amplified by turning on some trippy music or a visually-engaging movie. However they choose to spend the first hour or so of Dreamer’s Glass’ high, consumers are soon after lulled into a strong sense of physical sedation. Limbs and eyelids may begin to feel weighed down as any lingering muscular tension suddenly dissipates. Since the strain’s buzzy mental effects remain, newly relaxed smokers may enjoy some deep thinking, making this strain a good option for enjoying some claim, introspective solo time. As time passes or as dosage is increased, Dreamer’s Glass may lead to couchlock or even sleep. Because of this slow decline from stimulation into thorough relaxation, Dreamer’s Glass is recommended for enjoyment between late afternoon and early evening.
Dreamer’s Glass can even have useful applications for medical cannabis patients. The strian’s early feelings of concentration can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders. Its generally uplifting properties can also temporarily improve the symptom of mild to moderate stress and depression. Physiologically speaking, Dreamer’s Glass may soothe disease-related pain as well as everyday irritations like nausea. As noted, this bud can even counteract insomnia in the right circumstances. Because its strong cerebral vibes can sometimes tip over into paranoia, this strain is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of this rare strain are not available online; prospective growers must obtain clippings of mature plants from a trusted source in order to foster “clones.” The plants can be grown indoors or outdoors if growers live in a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Those looking to bring out the bud’s eye-catching violet hues should also briefly expose their crops to nighttime temperatures that are between 10 to 15 degrees below average.
Somewhat difficult to find, Dreamer’s Glass is a worthy smoke for the average user and should be snatched up if spotted on dispensary shelves. If you break it out around others, be ready for its strong aroma to turn some heads.
