A true Canadian legend, Blue God is a pure indica strain from Jordan of the Islands that is known for its outstanding and award-winning lineage. A cross between God Bud and DJ Short’s Blueberry, both previous winners of the acclaimed High Times Cannabis Cup, Blue God is equally as dank and imposing as its predecessors. Recognized by its distinct appearance, characterized by purple, almost blue-ish leaves and its pungent and berry sweet aroma, this strain is not one to pass up.
This crushing phenotype is mostly praised for its high THC concentration and almost debilitating indica high and is ideal for those looking for an intense, full-bodied high. With THC concentrations ranging from 17-22%, Blue God boasts a moderate to high potency. Described by some as a “creeper” strain, Blue God lulls users into a subtle spaced-out and stoned psychedelic high before coaxing users into a fully relaxed and tranquilizing body high. Definitely suggested for night-time use, this strain is sure to knock you off your feet and lock you on the couch, thwarting any prior productive engagements planned. Medicinally, Blue God is recommended for dealing with stress, chronic pain, insomnia, depression and muscle spasms.
Most well-recognized for its extravagant appearance, Blue God literally takes after its namesake. These dense and deep purple, almost blue-ish tinted buds are a breeding ground for resinous THC glands. Glistening in trichomes, the combination of iridescent THC and blue buds makes for a truly visually-stunning bud. The flavour of Blue God is very complex, with dominant notes of fresh blueberries and a flowery, earthy aftertaste. Blue God takes the alluring fragrances of its predecessor strains, and combines it all into one delectable scent that is characterized as earthy, pungent and delightfully sweet.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Bill Clinton once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.

Indica strains originated from the mountain ranges of Asia and as a result, developed many features to protect itself from the harsh environments. Indica plants are known for being shorter, and bushier, with thicker layers of resinous THC. The high of indica strains are defined by the “couch-lock” effect they have on users. Indica strains serve well as relaxation strains, or to aid with pain and sleeping ailments. The calming, sedating effects of indica strains make it excellent for night-time usage or off-work hours.
