Blue God by West Coast Gold Medicinals is an Indica hybrid with strong narcotic effects. The child of God Bud and Blueberry, both Cannabis Cup winners, it has a heavy onset but only a moderate THC composition at 15 to 20%.
Blue God’s buds are dense, with leaves that appear more violet than green. Resin production is high – a blanket of trichomes makes the dried flowers appear almost iridescent. Famously potent parent strain Blueberry comes through strong on the palate. When broken up, buds give off a more dank, earthy odor. Smoke is harsh and expands quickly, inducing coughing, although it does not have the hashy acrid tang of similarly heavy Indicas. When inhaled, this strain has a rich berry flavor, similar to a blue raspberry slushie.
Blue God has a high that takes root entirely in the body. A nighttime strain for sure, it creeps up slowly, slowing down breathing and relaxing muscle tension. Any mental effects are more psychedelic than cerebral – music or movies can seem surreal and amplified. In general, the spacey, stoned feeling from Blue God precludes any sense of focus. The tranquilizing effects of this strain are effective for chronic pain, anxiety, and especially insomnia.
With a typical Indica stature, Blue God is easily grown indoors. Plants top out at three to four feet tall indoors and have wide lateral branches; outdoors, plants may grow as high as eight to twelve feet. Flowering happens within eight weeks indoors and plants are ready for outdoor harvest as late as early October.
More of a knockout strain than a motivator, Blue God packs a punch despite its characteristically low THC content. Hanging at home will feel more appealing than burning through a to-do list – in fact, it may be all that you’re able to do.
