So what happens when you add blueberry to a cookie? By all accounts, a blueberry-flavored biscuit must be a real treat. Blue Cookies is a cross of Blueberry and Girl Scout Cookies that features a high THC content of more than 28%, making it one of the strongest strains in the market. 

But don’t just take it for its good smell and delicious taste because this strain comes armed to the teeth, and it’s guaranteed to get you to a high like you have never experienced before. This strain improves your mood so much that you feel elated and happy instead of stressed, and this greatly helps those who have anxiety problems like depression. 

This Indica-dominant strain also gives you a strong physical high, offering significant relief from chronic aches and pains. But although it helps with many ailments, it isn’t recommended if you are prone to seizures and other conditions that react to CBD.

Blue Cookies’ overall hue is a pleasant forest green, dotted with splashes of color that add a unique effect to the overall look. This variety is easily recognizable by its dense bluish nuggets and a thick layer of crystals covering the outside.

Potential growers may need to obtain cuttings from mature plants of this strain to breed healthy clones. 

Besides Blue Cookies, there are many varietals out there that have similar genes due to their parentage. If you wish to get to know them, read on.

Blue Gelato Variety

Blue Gelato, also known as “Blue Gelato #41”, is a deliciously sweet hybrid made by crossing DJ Short’s original Blueberry with Girl Scout Cookies and Sherbert. Growers who use their crop to make concentrates can make good use of Blue Gelato because of its high resin production. It delivers a smooth, earthy, citrusy, and fruity terpene profile that tastes as good as it smells.

Blue Gelato #41 basically has a strong effect on the head – a little activating and relaxing and also minimally thought-stimulating and uplifting – but also works on the body (quite calming and energizing and also a little appetizing and sleepy). The combination of clarity, calmness, focus, energy, and grounding makes Blue Gelato an excellent strain for yoga and other relaxing activities.

In terms of growth, Blue Gelato #41 reaches a size of up to 6.5 feet (200 cm) and can yield up to 3000 grams per plant with proper care. Most Blue Gelato phenotypes flower in shades of blue and purple with fluffy, cone-shaped nugs, long amber hairs, and cyan-blue colored crystal trichomes. Blue Gelato is easy to source from growers and simple to grow, making it a prime strain for beginners who want to experiment with it. 

From the fruity terpene profile to the psychedelic, heady clarity of each puff, Blue Gelato rarely disappoints.

Blue Dream Cookies Strain

A cross between the infamous Girl Scout Cookies and Blue Dream (Blueberry x Haze), this hybrid smells like a sweet blueberry confection and tastes just as good. The rush is high and euphoric, great in the daytime since it stimulates social activity and creative thinking. If you’re looking for a sweet treat that will stay with you, this is just the biscuit jar to look into.

The fluffy, popcorn-shaped buds have an enticing blue-green hue and are covered in lush trichomes and bright orange hairs. The sweet, sugary aromas of freshly baked biscuit dough and ripe blueberries are impossible not to love, as are the fruity, nutty scents as you inhale this delicious variety. 

Blue Dream Cookie buds are dense enough to require a grinder often to prepare them for smoking. This strain produces a balanced high with effects such as cerebral stimulation and whole-body relaxation. Medical marijuana patients typically use Blue Dream Cookies to treat symptoms such as depression, chronic pain, and nausea.

According to home grow enthusiasts, this strain has an average flowering time of 67 days and is best suited for growing using the Sea of Green method. 

Blue Sugar Cookies Variety

Just from the looks of it and after seeing the terpene profile, you know that there’s greatness in this strain. Blue Sugar Cookies is a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain genetically linked to Blue Dream and Sugar Kush. It tastes and smells most like Blue Cookies with an extra kick of spice from the Kush in its lineage.

Incidentally, Sugar Kush was chosen for its ability to increase yields and improve the show quality of the bud structure.

Blue Sugar Cookies tends to make you feel happy and motivated in low amounts. But in high amounts, similar to other hybrid cannabis strains, you can feel much more drained and tired. Nevertheless, this strain can balance you out and even get you pumped up if you need to clear a morning brain fog or get through the rest of the day.

Blue Chip Cookies Strain

Known in the Bay Area as the most potent GSC strain on the market, Blue Chip Genetics has been breeding this beauty for the past seven years. Blue Chip Cookies is the result of years of research and proprietary growing technology that has maximized and optimized the potency, flavor, and appearance of the plant. 

Grown in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Blue Chip Cookies has a THC content with consistent levels of just over 40%, much higher than the original GSC’s 28%. This is just one of the very good reasons why people travel from all over the world to try this famous Blue Chip product.

The processed buds have a pale blue and purple color under a thick layer of gem-like trichomes. When smoked, this strain can induce euphoria, creativity, tranquillity, narcosis, increased appetite, and pain relief. 

On top of its relaxing and stress-relieving properties, it won’t cause an intense comedown, paranoia, or scattered feeling many smokers get from other strains.

Sour Blue Cookies Strain

Sour Blue Cookies was developed by Bomb Seeds, the same Dutch breeders who have developed many explosive strains. The smoke from this bud is ultra-smooth and leaves a sweet and sour aftertaste that delights the taste buds. Don’t forget to expose the plants to cooler temperatures at the beginning of the flowering phase to bring out the bright blues and purples.
