Terpenes are found in many unique concentrations and profiles, contributing toward some incredible flavors. One of the most beloved flavor profiles of cannabis connoisseurs is that of blueberry. The terpenes that generate such pleasurable tastes stem from a strain unsurprisingly titled Blueberry.
The original Blueberry emerged from a breeding program involving Afghani, Sativa Thai, and Purple Thai genetics. The strain was first developed in the 1970s and its genetics have been used to produce some incredible Blueberry strains that exist today, many of which express the delightful aromas of the original.
Here is our top 10 of Blueberry strains available today.
