Blue Cheese is the result of crossing Blueberry with the legendary Cheese strain. This combination culminates in a variety that explodes with pungent aromas and dazzling flavors of cheese, berries, and skunk. Such potent flavors make this strain an ideal addition to edible recipes such as brownies and cakes. The trichomes of Blue Cheese pump out a THC content of between 19–20%, making her fairly potent. This indica-dominant hybrid induces a body high that is very strong, lazy, and relaxing.
White Berry remains at a medium height throughout the grow cycle, and is therefore a great choice for small-scale grow operations. When grown indoors, White Berry will reward the cultivator with yields reaching 450g/m². Outdoor plants are capable of churning out 500g/plant. She features a flowering time of only 7 weeks.
CBD Blue Shark performs best within an indoor environment, where she will not exceed 1m in height and produces up to 550g/m². Outdoor plants offer medium yields and will be ready to harvest during October. CBD Blue Shark has a flowering time of between 8–9 weeks.
There are a lot of things that stand out about this strain, perhaps the most obvious of which is her immense trichome production that resembles a thick layer of snow upon leaves and flowers. This impressive specimen is the result of crossing parent strains Blueberry and Jew Gold Cut. This combination has turned out a strain that offers delightful scents of berries, lemon, and earth. The sativa-dominant high is happy and uplifting, and will certainly get the creative juices flowing.
This indica-dominant autoflowering variety brings the highly prized genetics of Blueberry into the domain of easy-to-grow and fast-flowering autoflowering plants. Such a feat was achieved by breeding Blueberry with a ruderalis variety. The genetics produced via this ambitious pairing maintain the sweet, floral, and berry tastes and aromas of the highly sensual Blueberry. The THC level of this strain is only around 14%, making for a chilled-out and slightly body stoning high that makes for ideal daytime indulgence.
Terpenes are found in many unique concentrations and profiles, contributing toward some incredible flavors. One of the most beloved flavor profiles of cannabis connoisseurs is that of blueberry. The terpenes that generate such pleasurable tastes stem from a strain unsurprisingly titled Blueberry.
The breeders behind CBD Blue Shark introduced CBD into the world of Blueberry genetics. They combined Skunk 1, Blueberry, Shark Shock, and a CBD-rich sativa strain to achieve a remarkable 1:1 strain consisting of 6.5% THC and CBD. CBD Blue Shark offers medicinal users and those who prefer a much less intense high subtle and clear effects infused with mind-blowing flavor. The terpene profile within CBD Blue Shark is highly complex and diverse, producing immense aromas of berries, citrus, flowers, pine, and jasmine. The high itself is very calming, clear, and subtle.
The original Blueberry emerged from a breeding program involving Afghani, Sativa Thai, and Purple Thai genetics. The strain was first developed in the 1970s and its genetics have been used to produce some incredible Blueberry strains that exist today, many of which express the delightful aromas of the original.
Here is our top 10 of Blueberry strains available today.
Blueberry is a legendary cannabis strain developed back in the 1970s. Her genetics have since been used to create these incredible hybrids.

In Canada, Only HEXO has Blueberry—pure as the driven snow, as they say—except that it’s rebranded as Lagoon. The good news is that Blueberry has been spliced into many different hybridized strains, one of them by DJ Short himself, resulting in the well-loved strain called Azure Haze (this is just one generation closer to landrace ancestry than Blue Dream, a cross between Silver Haze and Blueberry).
Blueberry by DJ Short Seeds appears to be a phenotype of Blueberry Line, the love child of HTAF (aka Highland Thai Afghani), a mix of Thailand and Afghani landraces and Temple Flo from DJ Shorts Floral Line F3, a mix of Purple Thai and Afghani. Blueberry averages 18.5 percent THC and less than one percent of other primary cannabinoids.
It’s no secret that the judges of Karma Cup like Blueberry. The event is one of the most discerning for judging elite cannabis, where growers and producers are recognized for their hard work, right in the heart of downtown Toronto. Blueberry won 11th Place at the 2015 Karma Cup for best indica and 5th Place at the 2014 Karma Cup 2014 for best hybrid.
DJ Short apparently travelled through Central America and Southeast Asia, gathering robust landrace genetics along the way that would later blossom into what is now called Blueberry. Finding the strain (by that exact name) isn’t super easy, though the crosses that claim Blueberry as a parent are prolific. Know, however, that getting hold of the original is like holding cannabis history in your hand.
Few cannabis strains elicit unanimous effects across most consumers, but Blueberry may be one of those unicorns.
- Aurora Cannabis has an iteration of Blue Dream, as does Tantalus Labs and Canna Farms;
- Synr.g Cannabis offers a strain called Blueberry Kush;
- WeedMD Inc. has Blueberry Seagal, which is a proprietary strain; and
- Whistler Medical Marijuana Corporation has Blueberry Lambsbread oil, another proprietary strain.
Afghani is a strain named after its geographic origin, from which the earliest varieties of cannabis hail. Afghani is a good choice for growers because of it offers heavy production capabilities and alluring terpenes. DJ Short describes this prize-winner as “a large producer under optimum conditions, that produces dense bud with red, purple and, finally, blue hues that usually cure to a lavender blue.”
While some sources list Blueberry as an indica, it’s probably more accurately described as a hybrid because of its varied family tree, which includes some sativa-like genetics.
There is near-consensus about this strain’s sweetly sedative effects
