The Alpha Blue strain came to prominence in 2011 when it scored two second-place finishes in the Best Sativa category at the High Times Medical Marijuana Cannabis Cups in Denver and San Francisco.
Despite failing to scoop the top prize in either competition, Alpha Blue’s two high-placed finishes succeeded in bringing this strain to the attention of the cannabis community. Since then, Alpha Blue’s popularity has continued to soar among both recreational and medicinal marijuana consumers.
With 90% sativa genetics, it will come as little surprise that this strain’s effects are both uplifting and energizing.

While Alpha Blue’s effects are predominantly sativa in nature, its effects are not overwhelming. Most consumers of this strain say that while Alpha Blue is uplifting and energizing, they still feel nicely relaxed. Alpha Blue’s mood-enhancing effects also make it a great social strain to enjoy with friends.
