This 50/50 hybrid cannabis plant leans ever-so-slightly toward its sativa side, but it’s got plenty of indica characteristics, too. Blue Diamond sprouts frosty, super-packed buds that should give off a whiff of candied blueberries with a hint of hashiness.
The effects stemming from this strain are almost entirely in the head. After just a toke or two, it gets the mind loose and open, wiping away stress, the blues, and nail-biting anxiety. Its ability to induce relaxation, however, can translate to the muscles, easing cramps and tension.
Smokers who are sensitive to sativas, or who are just sensitive to cannabis in general, may find that Blue Diamond increases anxiety, so much that it can cause paranoia in some users.
If you’re growing, Blue Diamond has a flowering period of about eight weeks. Unlike most sativa-dominant hybrids, it churns out some pretty impressive yields of heavy, dense buds.
