Good Hoots: Simply Bare Organic Blue Dream
Good Hoots is the section of our Blog where we take a closer look at some of our most requested and top selling cannabis products here at Good Roots.
This one just arrived at Good Roots this week, but already we felt the need to spread the word on what might just be the best little jar of cannabis on the market today!
Simply Bare Organic Blue Dream is an amazing smelling, sticky, potent bud with previously unseen terpene levels and a heavy scent of sweet blueberries. Why so good? Why all the terpenes? Let's find out.
Simply Bare Organic
Grown under the banner of Rubicon Organics, Simply Bare has burst on to the market to rave reviews. The magic happens in a 125,000 sq.ft facility in Fraser Valley, BC with a focus on genetically exclusive plants which are grown in a living soil.
Living soil is a planting material that is similar to compost and has an active microbiology and biodiversity, which can include worms and their castings, protozoa, healthy bacteria, amoebas, kelp extracts and even glacial rock dust.
This living soil, combined with other techniques such as hang-drying and cold curing, means that these cannabis plants are allowed to fully express themselves. This and the well-sealed glass jars the buds arrive in, mean that the flavours and terpenes within are maximized.
Speaking of terpenes, those found within their Blue Dream strain are >3%, while most flower consists of 1-2%. And speaking of Blue Dream...
Two of the cannabis world's most well-known strains, Blueberry & Haze, come together to create the super-chill wonder that is Blue Dream.
Popular amongst medical patients for its relaxing effects and gentle euphoria, this sativa-dominant hybrid comes to us from California though it's a bit of a mystery as to this strain's true origins.
What we do know is that Blue Dream caught the attention of master grower DJ Short (who we covered in our Blueberry review and who is well worth looking in to), who refined this strain in to the one widely enjoyed today.
That enjoyment comes not only from the super chill effects, but also from the delicious, blueberry laden, sugary flavours imparted from the Blueberry genetics. Once past the initial sweet taste, you'll notice more flavours like citrus & sandalwood in there too. It's a really complex & pleasing flavour!
Blue Dream is typically a 60/40 sativa dominant hybrid and it's this mix that gives this strain its signature laid back vibe, without giving you that couch-lock sort of effect you would expect from a more indica dominant smoke.
Usually made up of large, fluffy buds Blue Dream nugs are a bright shade of green highlighted with a blue undertones. With this Simply Bare offering in particular, the sugary trichome coating is definitely thick!
Along with the pretty standard Myrcene & Caryophyllene, the more rare Ocimene shows up with this one. Ocimene has a sweet, citrus aroma and is often found in perfumes as well as mint, parsley, & orchids in the wild. This terpene provides a lot of Blue Dreams unique flavour profile.
In short, this West Coast favourite already revered on the cannabis circuit, has been elevated further by Simply Bare. With maybe the best scent in cannabis and terpene levels bordering on the ridiculous, this one is sure to be a favourite!
