Online sources claim that Alpha Blue (also known as Alpha Dream or Dream Diesel) is a cross between Blue Dream and NYC Diesel, though some claim it is actually Sour Diesel instead of NYC Diesel. Regardless of genetics, the majority of consumers concur that it tastes like fruit juice and fuel with a hint of sweet skunk. Alpha Blue has a flavor that is more bitter but has a strong aroma of sweet berries. According to Pacific Seed Bank, the cultivar typically contains 3–10% CBD and 15-20% THC.
2011’s Denver and San Francisco editions of the High Times Medical Cup awarded Alpha Blue second place for Best Sativa.
According to the seed bank, Alpha Blue is a cultivar that is simple to grow and has traits common to Sativa strains. It is pest-resistant, grows tall in any environment, and blooms in about eight weeks. The cultivar has dense, spade-shaped buds covered in trichomes, red and orange pistils, and leaves with a bright green color. According to Pacific Seed Bank, it yields significant amounts of fruit.
