Strain Review: Blueberry Waltz

A Flavorful Favorite and Cup Winner


Some strains are harder to find a background on than others, and Blueberry Waltz happens to be one of those. This surprises me, considering it took first place in the 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup for the Best Non-Solvent Hash. Blueberry Waltz is hybrid of Blueberry and Sour Waltz strains and bred by Natural Mystic Cannabis Caregivers.

What You Should Expect

Though it was the hash that won the Cannabis Cup, this strain is still an exceptional one that you should make sure to try when you find the opportunity. Blueberry Waltz is an indica dominant hybrid with genetics defining 70% indica and 30% sativa, which offers an incredible balance of effects that make this strain wonderfully versatile in the medical world. The color is generally a paler green with dark blue and purple shades, short amber hairs and all appearing much paler under a blanket of white crystals.

The aroma of this strain pairs perfectly with the taste of the smoke, offering a strong fruity flavor thanks to the Blueberry parent and earthy undertones that bring a natural taste and scent. The dense and sticky buds clearly take after the indica plants far more than sativa in looks, though the effects are surprisingly balanced. With smaller doses you will find a euphoric and uplifted attitude and many mention being talkative – however for less experienced users or when medicating heavily you might find yourself in couchlock.

Medical Benefits of Blueberry Waltz

Due to the extreme balance in this strain and its relatively high THC content, which is 18-22% on average, this strain is a great choice for those medicating for a number of ailments. Most commonly people use this strain to medicate for PTSD, chronic pain, stress, depression and rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. Other conditions it is often found to help include anxiety, spinal cord injuries and migraines. The effects are likely quick to sink in and last for a couple of hours before needing to medicate again.

Unfortunately, there is not readily available information on growing this strain – so I cannot supply you with average flowering times or yields. I can tell you that this plant being an indica dominant hybrid would likely be able to flourish indoors since the plant will likely be shorter and it could flower anywhere from 8-14 weeks after being planted.

If you’ve ever gotten a chance to enjoy this strain, or the Cup Winning non-solvent hash, I would love to hear about your experience with this surprisingly hard to get to know strain!
