Winner of 2011 second Best Sativa High Times Cannabis cups in two different regions, Blue Alpha is truly an alpha in its own rights. The Sativa dominant hybrid is a cross between ultra-famous Blue Dream and pungent-smelling NYC Diesel. The strain has gathered the dynamic fruity taste from its Blue Dream parent and pungent odor from NYC Diesel. The potency of the Blue Alpha is normally on the higher side with THC of 15% to 20%.
Blue Alpha is also being used as medical marijuana for both physiological and psychological treatment. Since it produces euphoric effects on the user, it is effectively used in treating anxiety, depression, and stress. The strain is also useful for patients facing attention deficit disorders. Its relaxation properties help in reducing pain and aches.
