Auto Blueberry seeds are a perfect choice for new growers looking for iconic indicas that are easy to grow. Originating in California in the 1970s, Blueberry’s genotype is mostly composed of Indica Afghani and Sativa Thai landraces. This strain quickly became a household name thanks to its terrifically tart taste and potent euphoric high. In 2000, the strain entered the pantheon of elite cannabis strains to win the coveted Cannabis Cup for “Best Indica.”
With an average THC content around 20 percent, one hit of Auto Blueberry will certainly give you a heavy body sensation accompanied by slight sedation. Since the seeds have ruderalis genetics, expect to harvest these berry-licious buds within only eight weeks.
Like any other autoflower strain, Auto Blueberry seeds flower at a pre-determined rate and don’t require extensive knowledge of lighting schedules. Growers usually report these cannabis seeds reach full maturity after about eight weeks of cultivation.
Just like original Blueberry seeds, Auto Blueberry seeds grow to a relatively short stature that’s ideal for indoor growers. Usually, the strain grows no higher than 30 inches, making them extremely easy to conceal.
Another nice feature about Auto Blueberry is the strain’s superb resistance to cold. Wherever you choose to plant the weed, it can usually handle temps as low as 65°F with no major issues. So, even growers in the Northern Hemisphere could get away with harvesting the strain outdoors.
One feature to look out for when growing Auto Blueberry is mildew formation. Although not extremely susceptible to mold, it’s not unheard of for Auto Blueberry to be infected when exposed to extreme humidity.
When it comes time to harvest your Auto Blueberry seeds, expect yields of about 1.5 oz./ft2. Usually, cultivators who place these seeds outdoors in direct sunlight are rewarded with higher yields.
Blueberry was named for its fruity flavors, not for its appearance. That being said, you might notice a few purple streaks on Auto Blueberry buds, especially if they were grown in colder climates. Cultivators report the slight chill actually helps bring out dazzling red and purple streaks on top of the green leaves.
Another thing to note about Blueberry’s appearance is that there aren’t a ton of thick white trichomes. Although Auto Blueberry is undeniably sticky, the trichomes on these buds are remarkably clear.
Unsurprisingly, most users describe Auto Blueberry’s flavor profile as sweet and fruity. You might also notice hints of earthy flavors like pine and even a touch of tart lemon.
Since Auto Blueberry is an Indica dominant strain, most of its medicinal applications are related to anxiety-relief and sedation. Many medical marijuana patients grow the strain to help combat conditions such as PTSD, generalized anxiety, and insomnia. There’s also anecdotal evidence Auto Blueberry could help chronic pain patients.
Because Auto Blueberry is such a strong strain, inexperienced users should approach with a bit of caution. Even long-time cannabis users claim Blueberry is one of those “one hit wonder” strains. Another potential downside of using Auto Blueberry is that it can’t be used during the daytime.
