This strain, developed in-house by Sensable Patient Network in Ballard, is one of the better sativas we’ve run into in a long time. It’s a cross of Blueberry (an indica) and two sativas, which the collective won’t identify and which we won’t even try to guess at. You won’t care either because Blue Crush, a 90/10 sativa/indica, delivers all the usual effects of a strong sativa—a powerful head high and a sense that you’re a bit out-of-body. Even better, it does so without generating the distractions that sativas are often heir to. So you can use this strain just about any time for pain relief, anxiety and as an awesome daytime medicine, given its almost Zen calmness. It’s grassy on the nose with a hint of berry and tastes wonderful on exhalation. Blue Crush tests at 17 percent THC (it feels stronger actually) and 2 percent CBD, according to the collective. Whoever created this hybrid earns high grades for coaxing such a high CBD count out of a sativa.
