Is Bluewood worth it?

Starting to think about the framing for my basement remodel. Is the Bluewood product worth it? I haven't even found a vendor in the Pittsburgh, PA area yet, but just wanted to hear from anyone with experience using the product.

Thanks

I see it on Mike Holmes all the time (unless he's using pink wood) but I don't see anyone south of Canada using it yet.

It's wood which has been treated to be mold resistant - looks like it was washed with blue paint.

I don't know if it can be ordered or not but our local Lowes doesn't stock bluewood. I don't get around new construction like I used to but the only place I've seen blue lumber is on TV. I'd rather do whatever I can to make the basement dry than worry about having mold resistant lumber
