Blue Dream is a versatile strain that’s almost perfect for an ideal gaming experience. Despite being Sativa-dominant, this strain is famous for producing a relaxing characteristic similar to what you would expect from an Indica. A lot of people describe its effect as euphoric, focused energy, and is an excellent choice for those who play games in order to decompress but still want to remain alert. You can use this strain for any type of video game if your purpose is to relax. But for games like Starcraft, Civilization, and Final Fantasy, Blue Dream is a perfect fit.
