Phenotype Profile: Both of the 1-gram samples I received consisted of very small “remnants” of bud. I would not even describe them as popcorn buds, but rather almost pieces of bud. Poor bud selection, even for single grams. BD is a bastardized strain with infinite phenotypes out there. This particular cut of Blue Dream buds were neon green mixed with an abundance of tight, orange hairs. The bud was dried and cured well, not overly dry at all. The BD varieties I’ve had didn’t have this specific set of traits.
Bud Density: 4.25 [1 -5]
Terpene Profile: Here are the terpene levels, as listed on the product label.
Beta-Caryophyllene 0.35%; Limonene 0.32%; Beta-Myrcene 2.16%; Alpha-Pinene 3.02%; Beta-Pinene 0.82% (LK Pure Labs)
In their intact state, this bud emitted a slightly dank berry aroma. Once ground, I smelled berry with that unmistakable Hazey dankness. When smoked, I tasted Hazey berry.

Effects: The effects of this cut of BD were accurate: A nice balance where steady energy, clarity and calming euphoria meet a mild body relaxation. Nature’s anti-depressant that won't fog you up, knock you out or slow you down.
Duration of Effects: 1.5-2 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood and mild G.I. pain. May also help with anxiety, depression, PTSD, mild aches and pains, appetite (and more)
Had the flavors and effects of Blue Dream, though the bud structure & some physical traits didn't really resemble any cuts of BD that I've had. I don't doubt it's a BD phenotype, but I would need to see the full bud structure to better assess quality. Bud selection was lacking, even with the limitation of 1-gram samples.
