While this strain may not teach you Jedi mind tricks, Death Star is definitely something from another world. As a powerfully potent, indica dominant strain, Death Star has a slower onset than most strains, but hits hard and holds on. Expect the classic diesel aroma and flavors with Death Star.
Popular among Star Wars fans for its namesake, but popular amongst medical patients for its potency and effects. Death Star is an indica-dominant hybrid, which provides a relaxed euphoria which is suitable for anytime of day.
Although high-maintenance, Death Star is relatively easy to grow. As with most indicas, the plant typically grows short, yet produces high yields. For best results and highest potency, this strain prefers organic soil in an indoor environment.
Moisture and humidity levels should be kept low, while maintaining a consistent temperature between 68-80 degrees. The beauty of this strain is it has a short flowering time of about 9 weeks, and produces extremely potent, high yields.
One of the most attractive features of Death Star is that it consistently tests well above 20% THC, in fact, test results have shown this strain can reach potency levels nearing 30%. Although the strain contains a relatively low amount of CBD, some tests have shown it contains significant amounts of CBC, or cannabichromene, as well as, measurable amounts of CBG or cannabigerol.
Wonderfully relaxing, Death Star produces a calming euphoria which slows down the mind and create heavy body effects capable of numbing the most persistent pain conditions. Powerfully sedative, this strain will send you into a sleepy, dreamy state which chases away insomnia with a knock-out punch. As typical with most indicas, Death Star will likely leave you stuck to the couch with little motivation, so it may be best used in the evening or before bed.
Typical side effects include dry mouth and eyes, along with a mild dizziness for some consumers. Although high levels of THC can induce anxiety and paranoia, the sedative effects will likely leave you carefree and longing for a nap.
The sedative effects combined with the ridiculously high THC potency make Death Star best used in the evening. Couch-lock is a typical effect of this strain, so its recommended for those who are seeking rest and relaxation. Death Star provides a heavy body sensation which relaxes muscles and eases the pain of multiple chronic conditions including arthritis, neuropathic pain, spinal disorders, and muscle tension. In addition, the sedative effects will help those suffering from insomnia, stress and anxiety.
Expect a case of the munchies with Death Star as it will help increase appetite as well as quiet nausea. Headaches and migraines may also find relief from this strain.
