Blueberry Syrup from Qwest is hybrid strain that was created by crossing Blueberry with Cherry Pie Kush.
Some users describe the aroma and flavour profile as having a dank fresh fruit vibe that’s similar to spiced black current and berry jam. Qwest’s grow team reports the buds as being dense, dark in colour and covered in a very thick layer of trichome crystals. We’re curious how this compares to their other hybrids like Qwest’s Stuffed French Toast or their Banana OG strain.

Opening the jar and pealing back the seal released the faint scent of sweet earth combined with a musky undertone. We were definitely expecting more of a sweet berry/fruit flavour, so this definitely threw us off a little bit. Not an overwhelming smell, but we’re definitely eager to give it a shot!
The product arrived in an almost glow-in-the-dark green glass jar with QWEST in large font. It was easy to find the strain name, type, cannabinoids, as well as terpene percentage on the back of the jar. Other than the pretty jar, there was nothing exciting about the labelling. In terms of the buds, they were were thickly coated with crystals with a dull green-brown and dark purple throughout. While they were very sticky we found this flower a bit difficult to grind.
After inhaling Blueberry Syrup we tasted a strong, earthy hay flavour with a mild hint of sweetness. However the exhale and aftertaste is definitely where the blueberry makes it’s presence felt. Comparable to a sweet berry with a very mild diesel and gas. Not one of our favourite tasting strains but with the low terpene percentage, we didn’t have super high of expectations.
Our jar was labelled lot number E021B.02 and packaged on February 25, 2022. Listed with 26.0% THC content and a price tag of $44.95 for 3.5 grams, we found Qwest’s Blueberry Syrup delivered a strong sedating high. This is definitely an indica-leaning hybrid so if you’re trying to take a nap, or go to sleep, this strain has got your back. For 26% it definitely did not feel that strong. The terpene percentile was fairly low, which we don’t usually go by, which affects the flavour and experience. QWEST definitely has good quality, but the high may not always be worth the premium price. All that being said we’d still rank this strain above Qwest’s Papaya Cake (a different hybrid reviewed a few months ago).
