Death Star Strain
“That’s no moon”…Get ready for the jump to hyper-space with the indica-dominant cannabis known as the Death Star strain.
It’s not surprising that Death Star strain has seen a meteoric rise in popularity lately. With the release of the new Star Wars movie, fans across the galaxy are hopping in their speeders to the nearest Cantina (ahem, dispensary) to try a taste of this Ohio native.
Death Star lives up to its hype. Even though it’s considered an indica-dominant, this strain fuses the legendary sativa Sour Diesel with the lesser-known indica Sensi Star, bringing out the best of both sativa and indica in its devastating effects.
Get ready to feel the Force awaken when you smoke Death Star strain. Or is it more accurate to say that Death Star will burn you?
The effects of this strain are cosmic: an intense, pain-killing high. “It’s as if millions of neurons suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced,” as one user describes it, paraphrasing Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Death Star is a “slow-creeper,” meaning it takes a few minutes for the intense effects of the high to kick in. But when they do, you’ll feel like your own Jedi, a master of your mind and body.
But beware the Dark Side! Death Star’s mind-and-body numbing effects can lead to couch lock and sleepiness.
But that is exactly what makes this strain a powerful medicine for treating insomnia, anxiety, restlessness. This strain makes a fantastic sleeping-aid and is ideal for nighttime use.
The high CBD content of Sensi Star, coupled with the heightened THC of Sour Diesel, also makes it an excellent strain for dealing with nausea and chronic pain.
For cannabis smokers who crave intense, earthy and pungent flavors – I’m looking at you, Diesel fans! – the Death Star delivers like no other strain can.
The smells and aromas of Death Star linger long after the last buds have been smoked, filling the air with that diesel, skunky smell.
Even breaking up the buds will stink up the room with unmistakable Death Star musk. So make sure to take precautions if discretion is a must.
While there’s no mistaking the Death Star in the movies, you might not know you’ve come across some of this strain at first sight. Death Star can take on two looks. Either dark orange hairs on dark green leaves or bright, green leaves with darker green accents.
They all, however, sport the same vibrant, amber trichomes.
The taste is dominantly diesel with a slight citrus kick. The sweetness varies a bit, coming in waves, and is strongest during that first hit.
Just be careful with the Death Star, be sure not to destroy any planets with it!
