Dark Star Strain Actionable Information on the Effect and Taste

The origins of the Dark Star Kush aren’t clear; however, it’s a hybrid that was originally bred two highly popular and regarded strains, the Purple Kush and the Mazar-I-Sharif (second-place winner of the 1999 High Times Cannabis Cup Best Indica). It has a composition of THC at 16%, CBD at 1.80%, Sativa at 0% and   Indica at 99%

Appearance, Taste and Fragrance

What you immediately notice about the Dark Star CBD is its dense round terpenes that are coated in gleaming trichomes., indicating clearly that Dark Star Cannabis is a resinous plant. This makes it aesthetically pleasing even in a bag.

However, regardless of its great looks, Dark Star strain underperforms when it comes to its odor. It isn’t complexly mesmerizing; nevertheless, its pungent earthy smell with a hint of pine is not repulsive either.

On the plus side, Dark Star strain tastes better than it smells, and most people who have used this strain would agree that its blend of grape or berry makes it pleasant.

Effects of Dark Star Weed Strain

The Dark Star weed is not generally considered as a heavy hitter. It has a THC content of %19, but that doesn’t mean it’s too shabby either. Frequent users agree that the best way to use this strain is during a lazy day when there is pretty much nothing else to do as it’ll serve greatly as a chill-out strain.

Medical Effects

Darkstar strain relatively high THC level makes it of great value to medical cannabis users; for most medical users, it does well to relieve stress as well as an aid in managing anxiety issues, including depression and PTSD. Unfortunately, even at 19% THC content level, its medical effects are not sufficient enough to aid those suffering from seizures and epilepsy.

People suffering from chronic pains, aches, and even muscle spasms would benefit greatly from the physical body high this Indica strain gives, as it is both relaxing and numbing. It can get too relaxing with a natural tendency for users to feel sleepy. This cannabis is ideal for use by those who have insomnia as it does not cause psychedelic head highs. The oil and wax work well for body aches and spasms too.

Possible Side Effects

Death Star Pot is not known to leave users lethargic or on a couch-lock; however, try smoking too much, and that would likely happen. Other side effects associated with using cannabis are experienced with the Dark Star weed strain, dry mouth, dry eyes, etc.. Remember to stay hydrated always.


Dark Star strain seeds can be grown outdoor, indoor, and in a greenhouse as well. Instead of seeing an obelisk-shaped dark matter with respect to its name, this strain is rather large, heavy, and with dense buds that are covered with pinkish hair and sticky resin. If grown outdoors, it thrives well in a warm environment where there is a lot of sunlight. Growing Dark Star Marijuana seeds are easier indoor; however, you’ll need a great deal of previous experience to grow this strain right. Note that this cannabis strain has a longer flowering timeline.

Experienced users shouldn’t have too many problems. As Dark Star Weed is an almost complete indica, making it an ideal nighttime strain or a lazy day chill bud as it helps the body relax and unwind as you get high.

On the flip side, new growers would have a difficult time with Dark Star strain, as it requires a reasonable level of skill and experience to cultivate. As an experienced grower, you can expect a generous yield as a reward for your enormous efforts.
