Review: Double Dream
Dream worlds can be either terrifying or gratifying. Sometimes they are peculiar mixtures of both familiarity and oddity. The vivid feeling of experiencing new realities while being semi-conscious or extremely high can change the way you feel or think long after you've awakened or come down from the clouds. Double Dream by Noble Farms lives up to its name in more than one way: the cross between Blue Dream and Dream Star (which has further Blue Dream and Chemdawg roots) and the ability to experience the dream-like haze in many states of duality. The sativa-dominant hybrid gives you the hyper-awareness of the passing thoughts and feelings around/inside of you, while the indica hints that lend to the slightly berry flavor give your body a pleasant heightened sensitivity and relaxation, making this truly a physical and mental euphoric ride.
The super kiefy, light green bud easily crumbles to the touch. When the nug is cracked, it gives off that signature Blue Dream smell-- a mixture of citrus and lavender that caresses, rather than assaults the nose. Rolled up in a tobacco leaf, the slow burn sent furls of smoke through the air and allowed me to settle into my body to perceive its gentle whisperings, while enjoying the smooth high.
In dreams sometimes we find ourselves acting out in rage and the next second planting flowers; we can hold onto many different emotions and simply perceive and even enjoy the irony, rather than shrink in fear or be paralyzed with awe. Double Dream helps achieve this same state in waking life. Whether you choose to spend your high watching the complete OJ Simpson Documentary series, engaging in rigorous physical activity, or engaging in mind expanding activities, such as reading, writing, drawing, or other creative endeavors, this high allows you to perceive new ideas, even contrary or disruptive ideas, while still maintaining and checking in with your higher self, the part that remains undisturbed and grounded in truth during turbulent, bizarre, or even straight shitty scenarios.
If you tend to spiral on heavy sativas, this is a gentle way to enjoy that hazy headspace, while still keeping one foot on earth. I would recommend trying this strain if you feel yourself amidst an unfamiliar transition---this strain allows you to experience the strength and bliss of being yourself, while also giving love to the tender spots where your weaknesses reside. It is a reminder that you understand calm and joy only as deeply as you're able to understand the demons on the reverse side.
