Never Judge a Book By its Cover
The immediate word that springs to mind when discussing Blue Amnesia is ‘deceptive’. And for two important reasons - the first of which being its sweet and innocent façade. Bursting with beautiful berry fragrances and as pretty as a picture, you’d expect a relatively mild and gentle high. Secondly, a predominantly Sativa strain should get to work with an energizing and uplifting high, without blasting your body into oblivion.
In the case of this hybrid, you’d be wrong on both accounts. Sweet and innocent she may look, but Blue Amnesia Auto is an absolute firecracker. Likewise, to take her predominantly Sativa genes for granted could set you up for quite the surprise - a pleasant or otherwise.
Energizing and uplifting in the early times, this herb can be completely physically incapacitating as the high wears on.
Considering Blue Amnesia Auto tests for an average THC content of around 18%, you wouldn’t normally expect anything particularly punchy or potent. These days, anything lower than say 25% is considered pretty average. Hence, these buds’ tendency to give you both barrels after just a few tokes has made them popular and infamous in equal measures.
Reasonably easy to grow and reliable where yields are concerned, this hybrid promises the kind of all-round sensory experience you can’t help but love. All with the added bonus of a beautiful blueberry-tinged fragrance and flavor, making for one of the most mouthwatering strains money can buy.
Flavor and Fragrance of Blue Amnesia Autoflower
It’s not until Blue Amnesia Auto plants approach maturity that the full glory of their fabulous fragrance begins doing its thing. Practically overnight, the initial aroma of cannabis is complemented (if not dominated) by a candy-sweet blueberry fragrance. One that intensifies as the crystalline coating (or trichomes) on the buds thickens, which appropriately looks like a generous coating of sticky sugar.
All of these sweet berry notes are even more pronounced when the buds are broken or burned, paving the way for a deeply enjoyable experience.
The aftertaste is perhaps closer to fruity bubblegum than blueberries, though with a hint of black pepper and a welcome spike of citrus.
Vaping Blue Amnesia can be a great way of picking out and intensifying some of the subtler fragrances and flavors, making for an even sweeter and stickier experience. That said, the peppery notes are far more pronounced when the buds are burned, so it’s purely a case of personal preference.
Leaning heavily towards the Sativa side of the scale, you know exactly what to expect from Blue Amnesia… at first. Right after the first toke, a feeling of vibrating pressure builds around the eyes and the temples, enhancing sensory awareness to the point of becoming perception altering in some instances.
The initial stages of the head-rush in particular can be surprisingly overwhelming, though quickly give way to a much more controllable and reassuring sense of contentment.
Creative ideas and inspired thinking flood the brain for the duration, alongside enhanced focus and an almost intoxicating sense of self confidence. For a while at least, you’re convinced you’ll never run out of energy again and could be tempted to tackle tasks you’d normally find any excuse to avoid.
But here’s the thing - Blue Amnesia’s very moderate Indica composition eventually makes its presence known… big time. Not with the usual warm and tingling body stone, but with a numbing buzz the likes of which could knock you clean off your feet.
The heaviness these buds bring on for such a modest-strength strain with Sativa-heavy genetics really is something else. Fantastic in the right circumstances, though potentially problematic where productivity is preferred.
Blue Amnesia isn’t a strain to reach for where uplifting wake n bake smokes are concerned, or even for a midday pick-up when you’re lacking the drive to perform. Instead, this stuff should be reserved exclusively for mid-afternoon at the earliest, in order to ensure the inevitable incapacitation occurs at the right time and in the right place.
Medical Uses of Blue Amnesia Autoflower
The surprising potency of Blue Amnesia on both sides of the scale makes this an extremely versatile strain for therapeutic use.
During the early stages of the high, its capacity to get to work on depression, apathy and low motivation is quite remarkable. Even if you’re having the worst day of your life and can barely be bothered to lift a finger, Blue Amnesia will have you back at your best in no time. Depression, stress, anxiety, tiredness - all eliminated from the equation in minutes.
An hour or two into the experience, this herb’s potential as a 100% organic painkiller becomes apparent. By effectively numbing the body in its entirety from head to toe, issues with everyday aches, pains and stiffness are quickly dealt with.
Feelings of nervous energy can also be brought under control with measured consumption of Blue Amnesia, which pairs physical relaxation with the ultimate ‘feel good’ factor.
Further down the line, the feeling of physical relaxation and numbness slowly but surely paves the way for a great night’s sleep. Blue Amnesia isn’t the kind of strain that’s going to knock you out like an anesthetic, but can fill you with all the good vibes and positive energy needed to settle in. Bouts of the munchies are also to be expected, but don’t tend to be particularly intensive or prolonged.
Growing Blue Amnesia Autoflower Seeds
This being the auto version of Blue Amnesia, you don’t have to pay any attention whatsoever to lighting cycles. Your plants will automatically switch to the flowering phase when the time is right, resulting in an exponentially faster grow from start to finish. In fact, it’s not impossible to take things from seed to harvest in no more than six to seven weeks.
Auto strains offer the trade-off of slightly smaller yields for faster results, but the fact that you can easily fit multiple cycles into the same season more than makes up for this.
For the most part, Blue Amnesia takes care of herself and needs little to no specialist care. Yields of approximately 150g of weed for every square meter of grow space are the norm, which isn’t bad considering how quick and easy this stuff is to grow. Warm Mediterranean-like conditions are ideal for outdoor grow spaces, though Blue Amnesia Auto is relatively durable and can withstand changeable weather conditions.
She’s also not a particularly difficult strain to keep under wraps, given her fresh and fruity fragrance that’s not as noticeably ‘skunky’ as many comparable strains.
Blue Amnesia Autoflower is another fantastic example of a strain that can be almost anything you want it to be. The effects give the indication of a perfectly balanced hybrid, though in reality this herb leans heavily towards the Sativa side of the scale.
The Amnesia ancestry here is definitely evident, with the initial cerebral high often descending into uncontrollable fits of giggles. Not to mention, bouts of short-term memory loss that never fail to bring even more hilarity to the experience.
While Blue Amnesia does have connotations with productivity, it’s more of a ‘silly’ strain for pure enjoyment than for use in professional settings. Particularly given her proclivity to bring on a heavy, cumbersome and downright clumsy body stone, which is best enjoyed as far from formal environments as possible!
