Dreamcatcher is a Colorado-born indica-dominant cross between Blue Dream and Stardawg. It is incredibly potent, averaging about 24 percent THC in its fluffy, mint green buds. Boasting the delicious flavors of blueberries and citrus blossom atop the relaxing, euphoric high, Dreamcatcher is a great way to catch sweet dreams, even before bedtime.
Greenpoint Seeds developed Dreamcatcher from some of our most prised phenotypes, Stardawg and Blue Dream. We sought to capture the flavors of the popular Blue Dream variety and the potency of Stardawg to create a strain that works well for all growers and consumption preferences. It’s taken us years of careful breeding, phenotype selection, generational backcrossing, and (our favorite part) testing, but the effort was totally worth it.
Today, we present our version of Dreamcatcher, an incredibly potent cultivar that reliably produces large, somewhat fluffy colas and flavorful, saucy trichomes. Our fans love Dreamcatcher and regularly leave reviews praising its performance, which is why we work hard to keep it on the shelves despite its high demand. If we don’t have it in stock now, come back in a month or add it to your wishlist to receive notifications when it returns.
Dreamcatcher Lineage: Blue Dream x Stardawg
Dreamcatcher boasts amazing flavor thanks to its sweet, sweet lineage. Combining Blue Dream with Stardawg means that Dreamcatcher is fruity, sweet, earthy, and slightly fuel-flavored (but in all the right ways). It’s taken us years to perfect this Dreamcatcher variety, but we’re proud to say we’ve pretty much nailed it. Dreamcatcher is flavorful, powerful, and a true pleasure to cultivate. Here’s why:
Blue Dream is a mysterious, Sativa-dominant variety that most assume comes from parents Blueberry and Haze. It first became popular among the medical community in Santa Cruz, California. It eventually caught up with talented seed breeder DJ Short, who gave us the Blue Dream we have today.
Blue Dream gained its popularity due to its relatively potent cannabinoid profile. In fact, Blue Dream regularly tests at around 20 percent THC, though it’s two percent CBD level is also quite attractive. Moreover, thanks to its delicious flavor of sugary blueberry cookies, Blue Dream is always a pleasure to consume regardless of medical need.
Blue Dream buds tend to be fluffy, which is common in most Sativa-dominant strains. The bright green buds tinged with deep blue hues radiate the powerful scent of blueberries and fresh earth. Its sweet scent becomes more powerful when the buds break apart, sending a cloud of sweet perfume into the air that could linger for hours.
Upon consuming Blue Dream, users often notice an immediate rush of creative motivation, which often lasts for an hour or more. However, as time passes, the Blue Dream experience often transforms into one of comfortable lethargy. As such, those who consume this sweet strain before attending to their duties should either complete them quickly or prepare for a second smoke sesh within a few hours for an extra boost of motivation.
However, repetitive Blue Dream consumption throughout the day will ultimately lead to a “crash” of sorts whereby consumers may need to rest to allow the cannabinoids to settle down a bit. This decline is not uncomfortable, mind you, but may prompt users to take a mid-day nap in some cases. Importantly, those prone to anxiety may experience discomfort when consuming high doses of Blue Dream cannabis flower.
Growing Blue Dream
Blue Dream is a popular strain to grow regardless of experience level. The plant is sturdy and prolific, growing up to seven feet under ideal (outdoor) growing conditions. Indoor growers should ensure their plants have ample room to spread, pruning and providing support along the way to control their size and shape.
Blue Dream also requires adequate nutrition (though less than necessary for most indica varieties). The best time to begin feeding Blue Dream supplemental nutrients is when the seedling has at least two nodes of growth. Standard 3-3-3 organic fertilizers work well when fertilizing Blue Dream during its vegetative stage. However, growers should reduce the plant’s nitrogen intake during its flowering stage to promote more dense flower development and slow branch stretching.
Blue Dream is usually ready to harvest within about ten weeks after planting indoors, or mid to late September for outdoor grows.
Stardawg is a proud father to many in our GPS portfolio. The stud lends fine qualities to all those who proceed it, including resilience, potency, and flavor. Originally from the California-born Chemdawg line, Stardawg has earned quite the reputation among growers everywhere, particularly on the East Coast.
Stardawg buds are deep green with an awe-inspiring amount of milky white trichomes (likely lending to the name, Stardawg). The flowers are musky and earthy, with a distinct diesel-fuel tinge that is subtle yet hard to miss. Some liken the aroma to that of a truck stop (fuel, skunk, and earth), all of which are features most cannabis connoisseurs adore. Make no mistake; its powerful perfume is a sure indicator of a potent flower, and the reason most “stoners” love to take a whiff of some dank Stardawg nugs.
As an incredibly potent strain, Stardawg is a true favorite within the medical community. It can help battle stress, fatigue, nausea, pain, gastrointestinal issues, and so much more. Though not particularly sedative, Stardawg can also help people fight insomnia when consumed just before bedtime. However, this Sativa hybrid can also boost motivation throughout the day when consumed sporadically in small doses. In other words, much of Stardawg’s effects depend on the user’s intended goals and time/frequency of consumption.
Stardawg’s resilience makes it an excellent choice for growers of all skill levels. Though proper nutrition is ideal, Stardawg will still grow well without a precise nutrient regimen provided that the water’s pH level remains neutral at about seven.
Growers are encouraged to experiment with Stardawg seeds given their quick growth and sturdy nature. Those who wish to incorporate netting for a SCROG set-up should begin training the plant during its early vegetative growth stage by topping the plant and guiding the resulting growth through horizontal nets. The process increases light penetration and air circulation, which will help the Stardawg buds tighten up during growth.
Qualities of Dreamcatcher Cannabis Flower
Dreamcatcher nugs are bright green and purple, with a small spattering of fiery orange hairs that penetrate deeply into the fluffy flowers. The generous dusting of trichomes radiates with the scent of earth, berries, and spice, though some varieties may feature a cheesy odor, as well.
The smoke is thick, with a distinct flavor of blueberries and herbs. Users often comment on the lingering flavors, which soon give way to the Dreamcatcher high. Interestingly, this 60-40 Indica strain has a unique way of lulling people into a deep, blissful slumber. Unlike many Indica-dominant varieties, she will not throw users into a couch-lock – at least not without having a little fun first!
What some might call a “creeper” strain, the Dreamcatcher high begins with a burst of euphoria that continues to build for up to 30 minutes. Users often feel very focused at this time and may be motivated to perform basic tasks like washing the dishes, reading a book, spending time with a partner, or journaling at the end of the day. However, as the experience begins to decline, users may notice that their limbs feel heavy and their mind is not as sharp. This drop in energy usually prompts people to crawl into bed, or at least find a light-hearted comedy show with which to drift off.
Medical Uses of Dreamcatcher
The medical community chooses Dreamcatcher for her potency and wide range of applications. Those who suffer from inflammation and insomnia are particularly fond of this strain, as are those who struggle with stress, anxiety, and depression. Dreamcatcher may also help dull pain and stimulate sexual activity. Notably, Dreamcatcher may cause the munchies, which is excellent for anorexia and chemo symptoms; it is not, however, a great “skinny weed” diet strain.
Growing Dreamcatcher Cannabis
Dreamcatcher is easy to grow at home regardless of skill level. However, thanks to its Sativa genetics, the plant does tend to grow quite large. Those who are growing Dreamcatcher indoors must ensure that they have sufficient space, lighting, and ventilation to handle its girth and intense aroma. Indoor growers should also make a special effort to control the size and shape of Dreamcatcher, switching to a flowering light cycle as soon as the plant reaches half its intended finishing height.
Outdoor growers could witness plant heights up to seven feet, especially when planted directly in the earth. However, some Dreamcatcher varieties take upwards of eleven weeks to mature. As such, those in colder regions should consider planting this variety in cold frames or pots. Doing so will allow them to bring the plants inside when temperatures drop below freezing.
Harvesting, Trimming, and Curing Dreamcatcher
Though often Indica in effects, Dreamcatcher is certainly a Sativa in stature. This fact is extremely apparent as growers continue to wait for this variety to reach maturity. Many Indica-type cannabis plants are ready to harvest seven to ten weeks into flower. However, Dreamcatcher will not reach its peak potency until around week eleven. Outdoor growers can expect to harvest Dreamcatcher around mid to late October, or when all trichomes are milky with only a few turning amber color.
Harvested flowers are often small “popcorn” buds that look best when trimmed by hand. Growers should remove whole branches when they are ready to begin trimming, starting with the ripest buds first. They should remove most fan leaves (but not all), saving a few to drape over the buds as they hang to slow the drying process. Growers should trim sugar leaves and shape buds at this time, too. We suggest that growers reserve sugar leaves (a.k.a. “trim”) to make edibles and tinctures later.
Notably, Dreamcatcher buds do not require a lengthy drying time. In fact, growers should closely monitor the drying process to avoid overdrying the product, thereby failing to preserve its potency. A proper cure should take about two weeks following harvest, provided that humidity levels are around 50 percent and temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
