North Star is a hybrid cannabis strain that is the child strain of Northern Lights and Afghani. First created by Sumo Seeds, the North Star strain contains a THC content of 17% and a CBD content of up to 1%. With Myrcene as the primary terpene, this weed offers fruity flavors and provides a balance of energy and relaxation to consumers.

Effects of North Star

The main effects that consumers report after taking some of this cannabis include:

  • A boost in energy.
  • A feeling of tingling.
  • A sense of happiness.
  • A feeling of relaxation.

This is a mood-boosting marijuana strain that will bring a smile to anyone's face. It relaxes the body but still maintains the energy levels and concentration that some people desire. These effects make it a good option for afternoon consumption. Beginners may also try this weed thanks to its moderately low THC content. However, it can sometimes cause nausea, slurred speech, and panic attacks so monitoring your doses is important.

For patients who suffer from medical issues like fibromyalgia, fatigue, hypertension, and arthritis, this cannabis may prove to be helpful in providing some relief.

Terpenes and Flavors

While Myrcene is the dominant terpene here, it is accompanied by the following:

  • Caryophyllene
  • Limonene
  • Pinene

The resulting flavor profile is quite fruity and sweet. You will likely notice the following flavors when consuming this weed:

  • Grapefruit
  • Rose
  • Plum
  • Lavender

The floral notes are contrasted very well by the sourness of the grapefruit notes that are introduced by Myrcene, Limonene, and Caryophyllene. Add to that the sweetness of plum that Myrcene brings and you have some very pleasant-tasting buds on your hands.

Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.32 - 0.4% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions.
