You might associate steel with strength and hardness, but the Blue Steel strain is quite soft and cuddly instead. It’s a mostly indica cannabis strain that is often featured in cannabis marketing for its intense berry and stone fruit flavor. If you need to relax without immediately dozing off, try this strain from the afternoon onward.
Covered in trichomes with a frosty look, Blue Steel is an appealing weed strain starting with appearance. The fruity flavor adds a dimension to many sweet edible recipes like gummies or cookies. Of course, the average THC content of 24% or higher means you won’t be passing a THC drug test after imbibing it.
