The intriguing and dreamy style of Simon’s work drew us to him for our first ever Califari Strain Artwork series! Lucky for us, we got two gorgeous prints from him! The colors and movement in Blue Dream are just so rich.

“Inspiring my creative expression is the majesty of nature with the love and appreciation that all life comes from the same source. In my dedication to the creative process, I strive to find ways of producing art that inspires harmony between the Earth and its shared inhabitants. Our collective appreciation for nature is a bridge that unifies us all. Each creation reflects an aspect of my journey, thinning the veil between physical and metaphysical realities.” – Simon
Blue Dream is a Sativa dominant hybrid, a cross between Blueberry (Indica) and Haze (Sativa), originating in California and known to be among the best-tasting strains. An imitation consisting of Blueberry and OG Kush also exists. With a yummy, sweet berry flavor, Blue Dream is know to give users feelings of warm euphoric glow, fills them with energy and creativity, and helps them to feel happy, focused and relaxed.
This strain is perfect for morning use and is often helpful for people suffering from mood, stress, and anxiety disorders. The strong body high makes it a good choice for daytime pain relief and for other ailments requiring a high THC strain.
Blue Dream is recommended for indoor growing. When grown outside, it can be overly susceptible to spider mite infestations. Flowering time for this strain is about 5-6 weeks and it is on average a high yielder.
