STRAIN REVIEW: BLUESTONE
 
Grower’s name: Waira
 
Strain: Bluestone (2 phenos, both auto’ed) 
 
Breeder: Stone
 
Indoor/Outdoor:  both
 
Medium: FoxFarms OF/HF even blend for starting; transplant soil  Emerald Triangle Recipe 4202 plants per 5 gal smart pot.
 
Nutrients:  Sea Grow mostly, Grow and Bloom; Ca-Mg; Si supp’ ProTekt; Big Bloom: occasional hits with microbe inoculants or EWC poop tea; when ready: Avalanche, Hawaiian Bud, Bud Factor X, Terpinator. Occasional hits of: molasses or honey; GreenAll Fe-Cu-Mn-Zn supp’
 
Lights (indoor): Side by side 300W dual spec CFL, 400W HPS (about 9 hrs total).

From Seed: 9-9.5 weeks
 
Harvest Points: For me, once ambering started, it proceeded quickly.
 
Dry Yield:   25.3 g, 18.4 g
 
The Growth: ****1/2  both girls auto’ed at about 18 days, and were fast, tolerant, and trouble free the whole way! Zero deficiency issues; pests did not seem to favor them vs. others around them; zero mold issues.
 
The Smell: **** aromatics were great, hard to keep your nose outta the jars! Both were definite blends of their parents, but in different proportions; Small pheno – MoB’s berry stood out the most, some of Jack’s unique fruity-sweet, and notes of spicy-floral from Stone Dragon… Bigger pheno’- much less berry, more of the spicy-fruit-floral, and a hint of something akin to eucalyptus/menthol…

  Use numbers 1-9 on descriptors that apply to the taste where 1 indicates a subtle presence and 9 indicates a very pronounced presence. 
Berry [8/4] Floral [3/4]; Blueberry [6/2] Fruit [3/4]; Spice [3/6]; Dirty [2/1]; Eucalyptus [2/4] Camphor [2/4]
 
The Smoke: 
 ****  Both – pretty smooth, some expansion bite; aromatics carry over med. strongly with same flavor as aroma, and with an almost creamy flavor nuance as well (another MoB trait); makes a weapons grade joint!
 
Method of delivery: Bong mostly, a little vape/joint.

The High: ***** Top billing in my book! Potency feels on par with tested strains I’ve had that are in the high teen’s % THC…. No appreciable difference between phenos; I get a “headband” effect that moves to the eyes (kinda heavy); effects come on fast; I find the buzz to be fairly balanced in head/body – sit and relax, and you melt to the seat, or move around, and you’re fine (great movie weed!); fairly low burn-out/crash factor.  A couple “industry” friends got  samples, and were truly floored when I told them this was an auto!
