About Blueberry Cannabis

The Blueberry strain is one of the most sought after cannabis hybrids out there. This Indica-dominant strain is a winner of the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup and was created by the one and only DJ Short. Back in the 70’s, this breeder sampled numerous strains from all parts of the world.

Whether from Thailand, or places like Colombia and Mexico, DJ Short worked on a lot of landrace strains. These are the original strains whose genetics haven’t been altered by humans. They are natural breeds of cannabis that evolved over thousands of years.

After going through hundreds of strains and testing them out, Short finally found what he was looking for. He found two of the most highly regarded strains of the modern cannabis industry.

He mixed Highland Thai (Juicy Fruit) and Purple Thai. This gave him the female plant. These two Thai sativas make up the female side of all DJ Short’s strains. He absolutely loved them.

With the female ready, he simply needed the male to create the strain he had envisioned all this time. It was only in 1979 that a group of Californian growers introduced DJ to a strain that surprised him. Said strain was an Afghani indica. And at the time, indicas were a very new breed of cannabis. Sativas controlled most of the grow rooms before indicas changed the trend.

This new genetic was able to yield the same bud density, with less height, and at a faster rate. The original Blueberry was 80% indica and 20% sativa. But DJ also worked on a more sativa-dominant plant which was later refined into what we know today as the Blueberry sativa.


Not sure which strain to grow? We'll be presenting you with 3 top-notch Blueberry genetics that surely won't disappoint you. No matter which one you choose, it is sure to pack a fruity punch!


Blueberry (Dutch Passion)

This Dutch Passion Blueberry is an original cannabis strain. It combines a fruity flavour-punch with the classic blue colour on the leaves and buds.

This Amsterdam coffeeshop bestseller is the most famous member of the blue family. It takes approximately 7 weeks of extremely hard work for this beauty to develop its buds. It’s hard work because this strain is very picky when it comes to nutrition. As a grower, you’ll need to pay close attention to the plant’s signals and be ready to react quickly to its needs.

But the hard work pays off when the fruity buds are collected. They come with a potent high that is both long-lasting and thoroughly enjoyable. The cerebral experience is said to be euphoric and very resistant to tolerance build-up. You will certainly not get tired of the resulting bud from this strain. You’re promised great highs for as long as you grow these plants.

It’s a great choice for relaxing and letting go of all your day’s stress. From the inexperienced to the connoisseur consumer, this is a perfect strain for all types of stoners.

Blueberry (Zambeza)

Zambeza Seeds decided to cross the already fantastic Blueberry strain with the famous Northern Lights. This created a combination of the best of two worlds, yielding buds with THC levels as high as 19%. Despite the indica traits, this strain will grow tall - up to 150cm. We recommend you prune the plant so it can grow into a bushier shape.

This strain is sure to do your cannabis routine justice. Paired with a predominantly sweet flavour comes a relaxing physical high. With its unique and fresh blueberry flavour, as well as a unique high, this powerful indica deserves all of its international success.
