Death Star is an indica dominant hybrid strain of cannabis that is known for its potency and for having a gradual, creeping onset. While many are drawn to this strain because of its name, it has far more going for it than just that.
Death Star is a cross between the famous Sour Diesel and Sensi Star strains. Thanks to this crossbreeding, Death Star has a mixture of indica and sativa effects, making it a well-balanced hybrid. The strain has high levels of THC with buds that are thick, fat and sticky.
Death Star has dark green leaves that are covered in dark orange hairs, but it can also have brighter leaves. It has a strong, earthy smell and its aroma is often compared to that of a skunk. The aroma becomes stronger when the sticky buds are broken up. When smoked it has a dominantly diesel taste with a hint of citrus and a touch of sweetness. Those who like the taste of Sour Diesel are sure to enjoy Death Star.
Those using marijuana medicinally may find Death Star beneficial for treating a variety of ailments. It has reportedly helped those suffering from depression and stress. Death Star may also help with insomnia as it can help people remain asleep. It has also been used to help with nausea and pain. This can make it helpful when treating a large range of problems and as it is so well balanced between sativa and indica, it is a popular choice for medical users.
Death Star was created in Ohio in the early 2000s. The strain was developed by ‘Team Death Star’ who then began popularising the strain in 2004. The strain then started to grow in popularity throughout the Midwest and up and down the East Coast. In 2010, about ten years after it was first created, Death Star was featured in High Times.
Death Star is a strain that can be grown both indoors and outdoors and it generally flowers around 65 days. It grows in short bushes with small buds.
