About this Hybrid Strain
The hybrid cannabis strain Blue Nightmare may sound scary, but it’s a wonderful balance of indica and sativa effects. Its harvest-ready buds are shaped like popcorn, lumpy, and quite dense as they emit the scent of blueberries.
THC levels typically fall anywhere between 15-26%, so checking potency before consuming is recommended. Its high is known to induce euphoria and spark creativity, making tasks and hobbies seemingly more fun and easier to complete. Both mind and body will relax simultaneously, and the consumer will be left in a happy state of mind that melts all negativity away. Some report a tingly sensation throughout the body, and others note its wondrous ability to treat mood disorders.
Besides dry mouth and eyes, Blue Nightmare may cause paranoia when consumed in higher doses.

Blue Nightmare and Purple Dragon
Here in San Diego, we are accustomed May gray and June Gloom. However, this year we not only have had May gray but also May rain and colder temperatures than I can ever remember. This may be our new normal as the rest of country also is experiencing their new normal of serious flooding, hurricanes and tornadoes never seen before in those part of the country. All that being said, the May rains and gloominess called for some colorful cannabis strains to elevate my mood and change my point of view.
The first colorful cannabis strain that I choose was Blue Nightmare and although its name may be “scary”, this strain will make you happy, like a sweet dream rather than a nightmare. Blue Nightmare is a 50/50 sativa/indica hybrid strain, bred by the growers at RNM Flowers by crossing the Southern California favorite Blue Dream and another popular indica strain, Tahoe Og.
Visually this strain is beautiful with big cylindrical, bright green and orange buds that are covered with a nice dusting of trichomes. It definitely inherited its parents’ pine and berry aromas. It’s flavor is fruity and earthy with a bit of skunk as you exhale.
The effects of Blue Nightmare comes on quickly and will initially leave you feeling uplifted, a bit energized with increased creativity and focus. However, consume a bit more and that focus becomes a dreamy cerebral state, letting your mind go free and allowing you to just daydream. Your anxiety will disappear, and your conversation becomes free-flowing and uninhibited. As it continues, you will feel a mild lethargy that might lead to couch lock.
Blue Nightmare is a suitable strain to use for treating pain, inflammation, and fatigue. Those with depression, anxiety, and stress will also benefit from its effects. It is also an excellent strain to change a gray May day into a technicolor dream.
Just a side note: although I really liked this strain, I discovered the RNM Flowers has not made seeds of Blue Nightmare available for commercial sale. As such, prospective growers must obtain clippings from mature plants of the strain in order to grow genetically identical “clones. Meaning that it is difficult to find this strain and it just might be a nightmare to ever find this strain again.
The next colorful cannabis strain that brighten up my day was Purple Dragon. Purple Dragon is an indica dominant hybrid created by an unknown breeder by crossing Blue Dragon (Sour Diesel and Blueberry) and Purple Urkle (a strain of Mendocino purps). And although this strain has some heavy hitting indica lineage, it also possesses some sativa qualities, making it a much more balanced strain than one would expect.
The aroma of Purple Dragon is very sweet and earthy with some berry and floral notes. It’s flavor is also sweet and grape like-similar to the weird grape flavor of grape bubblegum. It’s effects are really balanced for an indica dominant strain. It is known for its cerebral effects, which are uplifting, unlike most indica strains, leaving all that consume with a solid feel-good mood.
Purple Dragon will leave you feeling hazy and euphoric state, tempting you to spend your evening laughing and finding everything to be really amusing. Finally, Purple Dragon is the perfect strain to fill any gray day with fun and relaxation, making you not care that you haven’t seen the sun in days.
Just one quick final note about feeling so fine after consuming Purple Dragon. Purple Dragon can cause a case of the munchies in many users, so be sure you are ready with snack items that are waiting to be consumed, or else you might find yourself in the next vehicle on the search for food.
