Blueberry Yum Yum Strain

Blueberry Yum Yum has relatively small flowers that adhere to a spade-like shape, tapering from a broad base down to a pointed tip. These buds have a somewhat loose structure — the ragged, fluffy-looking leaves are not densely packed and can be easily torn away from their central stems. These leaves themselves are a dark shade of mossy green, although certain phenotypes may express some complex shades of brick red. Dark orange and brown pistils wind their way through these flowers. Finally, although they do not appear to be as coated with trichomes as many other strains, Blueberry Yum Yum’s dried flowers are still very sticky and need a grinder to be broken up.
Aroma and Flavor
The Blueberry Yum Yum is intensely aromatic and smells fruity. The taste is like the smell meaning blueberry is the dominant taste with other lighter fruity undertones.

If they break these buds apart or ground up, there is a touch of skunk on it. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Blueberry Yum Yum burns with pleasantly smooth and easily palatable smoke. On the exhale, this smoke has a sweet aroma with distinct pine and berry flavors that complement each other well.
