Alpha Blue, also more commonly known as “Dream Diesel” or simply “DD” to the cannabis community, is a heavily sativa dominant hybrid (90% sativa/10% indica) strain that is a potent cross between the insanely popular Blue Dream X NYC Diesel strains. This dank bud placed 2nd at the High Times’ Cannabis Cup for Best Sativa in 2011 at both the Denver and San Francisco competitions and boasts a moderate THC level that ranges from 12-15% on average. Users describe the Alpha Blue high as having an immediate euphoric and energetic uplifting effect that leaves them happy and sociable with tendencies towards becoming uncontrollably giggly at times. Following this initial cerebral sativa high, users will experience a relaxing calm that spreads throughout the body without making them feel sleepy or sedated. Due to these potent effects, Alpha Blue is said to be an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic stress, mild cases of depression, anxiety, insomnia, and appetite loss. This bud has a distinct aroma of sweet earthy haze and a delicious taste of earthy sweet blueberry with a hint of pungent haze upon exhale. Alpha Blue buds have large dense bright neon green spade-shaped nugs with a thick layer of dark olive green leaves and patches of light minty green. These nugs are spattered with rich amber hairs and are frosty with white glistening trichomes.
