It can aid treatment for both physical and mental discomfort, being used in the treatment of anxiety, chronic pain, and fatigue.
Terpinolene is a terpene loaded with potential medical benefits. It is known for its antioxidant properties, and it has natural antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial properties.

Strain Grow Info
Blueberry Muffin can be grown both indoors and outdoors, and growers can expect a medium-size yield for their efforts. Growing outdoors requires a warm and humid climate to be successful, so this won’t be possible for everyone.
It is regarded as not too difficult to grow, though pruning often is advised. It is also quite resistant to mold and bug infestation, though of course growers should still monitor their plants for any signs of disease.
You can purchase Blueberry Muffin seeds straight from the Humboldt Weed Co. via their online store. You can also pick it up from other reputable online sellers and in-person at dispensaries.
We advise you to check your local and state laws to ensure that you’re not breaking any laws by ordering online. In some states, sending and receiving marijuana seeds is illegal, so be careful!

Growers can expect Blueberry Muffin to flower in around 6 – 8 weeks, making it a popular choice for its relatively quick turnaround. When grown outdoors, farmers should look to harvest at the end of September.
The plant gives off an average yield when grown indoors or outside. Indoor cultivators can expect around 12 ounces per square meter, whilst outdoor enthusiasts can expect around 14 ounces per plant.
Final Thoughts: Blueberry Muffin Strain Review
Quite simply, it was love at first sight with Blueberry Muffin. The colors are almost hypnotic, and the range of deep purples and greens is enticing. The team at Humboldt Seed Co has knocked the ball out of the park with this one.
The flavor and the aromas are wonderfully intense. The sweetness stands out and is beautifully complemented with the earth pines for a balanced, smooth, and seriously creamy smoking experience.
The ability to find some focus whilst also feeling a body high is pretty awesome and a rarity for me, as I often find myself feeling one way or the other with many strains.
This fabulous strain is one I would go back to again and again and never tire of. Though I usually prefer Sativa leaning strains, this one really hit the sweet spot for me.
