About Sweet Dream
Sweet Dream is made of this: Gupta Kush crossed with Blue Dream spinoff Al’s Dream. The sativa-leaning hybrid was created by Colorado Seed, Inc., who have given us strains like Dr. Feelgood as well as Gupta Kush itself. With powerhouse hybrid Blue Dream in its background, Sweet Dream was born to impress. It emanates fruity and earthy fumes and offers smokers a smooth, psychedelic high. This strain’s potency has been measured at between 13% and 23%.
Sweet Dream’s flowers tend to be small to medium in size. They adhere in a bullet-like shape, tapering from a broad base to a smaller, almost rounded tip. The tightly-packed leaves cling together in a dense, indica-typical bud structure. These leaves are a dark shade of olive green and are shot through with brown and orange pistils. A sprinkling of translucent white trichomes covers the flowers, lending them an icy sheen and a very sticky texture.
When properly cured, Sweet Dream bursts with a fruity blueberry aroma that makes parent strain Blue Dream so popular. On closer inspection, the buds also have an underlying earthiness and musk. Meanwhile, grinding open Sweet Dream’s dense nuggets yields some woodsy notes of pine. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, this strain burns with a smooth and exceptionally flavorful smoke that tastes earthy and citrusy on the exhale.
Sweet Dream offers a creeper of a high and may take as long as 10 to 15 minutes after users have ingested its tasty smoke to reveal its effects. Once under its spell, smokers may notice some odd changes in their sensory perception, as well as trippy sensations like time dilation and even depersonalization. As they’re able to acclimate to this altered state, smokers may pick up on a heightened sense of analysis, characterized by fast-paced, associative thinking and a focus on topics that may otherwise seem uninteresting. This cerebral frame of thinking can be a good way to spark conversation in social situations. It can also help consumers to accomplish a mountain of work, whether it’s task-based or more creative and open-ended.
As the high wears on or as dosage is increased, a pervasive feeling of calm seeps in, sending waves of relaxation down the spine that spread through the core and limbs. At this point, couchlock may take over, providing the perfect excuse for kicking back after a long day for a binge-watching session. Any earlier tendency toward deep analytical thinking may be softened by this point, replaced by a hazy sort of daydreaming. Because of its gradual decrease in energy, Sweet Dream is recommended for late afternoon or early evening use. If toked just before bed, it’s liable to keep smokers thoughtful and animated.
Sweet Dream’s balanced effects can also have application for medical cannabis patients. It can stoke hunger, helping people who may have lost their hunger to disease or to harsh treatments like chemotherapy. The strain’s generally positive, uplifting effects can also temporarily take the edge off of the troubling symptoms of stress and depression. This hybrid’s physical sedation can also have medical value, serving to dull chronic, nerve-based pain as well as everyday annoyances like nausea and headaches. Patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC should consume this strain with caution, as its early effects are deeply cerebral and could lead to paranoia.
Colorado Seed has not made seeds of Sweet Dream available for sale online. As such, prospective growers need to obtain clippings of mature, healthy plants of the strain from a reliable source in order to grow genetically identical clones. The strain can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation requires a semi-humid climate with consistent daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Sweet Dream’s plant grow short and bushy; growers should be sure to trim away any broad fan leaves that could prevent light and air from reaching low-growing flowering nodes.
Sweet Dream is a great option for some calm, introspective solo time as well as for more boisterous social settings. With a versatile balance of effects, it’s poised to impress indica and sativa lovers alike.
