Originating from British Columbia, Rockstar Kush is a result of a crossing of powerful Rockstar and Bubba Kush. This 75/25 Indica-dominant strain took the 2nd Place 2012 Cannabis Cup Winner in the hybrid category primarily due to its calming effects.

Rockstar Kush strain is suitable for both experienced smokers and beginners alike if they choose the dose carefully, as the THC level varies between 15 and 18% with a very low CBD level of only 0.27 - 0.46%.

Strain Taste and Aroma

Myrcene and humulene give this strain a classic earthy flavor that blends gently with the typical piney aroma and taste of carene. Consumers experience the blissful aftertaste of the tangy lemon thanks to limonene, caryophyllene gifted Rockstar Kush cannabis light floral notes.

The plant has a rather bright appearance, as its lime green buds are covered with bright amber hairs and many crystal trichomes.

Rockstar Kush Strain Main Effects

Users love this strain for the feeling of euphoria, the joy that it gives. Rockstar Kush weed strain is great at helping you get rid of anxiety and negative thoughts. The buzz slowly spreads to the entire body, leaving it sedated and relaxed.

  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of appetite
  • Chronic pain

However, you may experience such side effects as:

  • Paranoia or fear
  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Low blood pressure
  • Hunger

Rockstar Kush Strain Cannabinoids

THC 17 - 20.33% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.14 - 0.3% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.24 - 0.6% 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. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.14 - 1.22% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.05 - 0.11% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.24 - 0.92% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

Rockstar Kush Terpene Profile

Carene 0.13% Carene (also known as Delta-3 carene) is a terpene found in rosemary, lemons, pines, and cedars, offering citrusy and cypress aroma. Studies on mice showed that carene provides anti-inflammatory effects, as well as promotes bone health and chronic pain relief.
Myrcene 0.05% Myrcene (also known as β-myrcene) is one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis, representing more than 20% of the modern marijuana terpene profile. Myrcene has a distinct earthy, musky flavor, resembling cloves. It is responsible for calming and soothing effects of weed. Myrcene is also found in hops, thyme, mango, lemongrass, guava melon.
Humulene 0.23% Humulene (also known as α-humulene) is one of the major terpenes found in cannabis, contributing to woody, earthy, spicy, herbaceous, and, mainly, floral aromas of cannabis. Used in modern medicine, humulene offers anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and appetite suppressant effects, which have been well-researched by pharmaceutical companies.
Limonene 0.23% Limonene (also known as d-limonene) is the second most common terpene in nature and the third most common terpene in cannabis. It has a powerful citrus aroma and can be found in all citruses, including lemons, oranges, grapefruits, limes, juniper, etc. Limonene is known to elevate moods and provide anxiety, depression, and stress relief.
Bisabolol 0.15% Bisabolol (also known as α-Bisabolol or levomenol) is a lesser-known terpene found in cannabis. It contributes to anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, antioxidant, anti-microbial, and analgesic properties of weed strains containing bisanol. Attentive smokers would be able to catch a nutty, fruity scent with herbal and floral undertones, with a tender trace of coconut.
Caryophyllene 0.21% Caryophyllene (also known as beta or b caryophyllene) is a terpene found in many herbs and spices, such as black pepper, basil, rosemary, and oregano.

The skunk has an intense diesel initial taste that slowly transforms into earthy after taste. It helps in creating a happy environment in the head, improves mood and the effects last fine compared to the others Ive tried before.

It’s strange how sometimes when you try some new kind of weed you feel like you won the lottery. This is how I felt after started smoking RockStar. Couldn’t decide what I like more great lemon AROMA, smooth earthy taste, or pleasant sedative effect.

Afghani breeds can be very heavy but not this one. They mixed it really well! Can do wonders for stiff muscles, especially in the morning. Don’t be afraid to use it in a small dosage before your work out. I’ve tried it and it was great!

Unfortunately not easy to find it. I’ve purchased it once out of curiosity and now I’m sorry I wasn’t smart enough to buy more. Great nature, not violent at all. I suffer from back pain as a result of an injury and when I’ve smoked it was the only time I didn’t feel the pain.

I’ve tried it with the bong on one occasion but definitely prefer to roll it. Since it can be a little bit too intensive I would recommend preparing a joint and enjoy it in the safety of your home. It can punch really hard so consider yourself warned.

In my experience, the potency of this weed is intensified when you smoke it using a bong. The high rapidly takes over yourself and that might be beneficial if you are experiencing great pain in the moment. You can also vape this kush without any unwanted effects and that is how I normally consume this mary jane.

Anywhere I see this strain I know instantly that it is stoners paradise because it is quite rare but also a necessity at all dispensaries. If you have not tried this kush yet, what the hell are you waiting for!? It is one of the greatest

I smoked this weed before my speech at my brothers wedding full of people I barely know and its safe to say that I crushed it. The crowd was entertained and my heart was not pounding out of my chest. That is contrary to my personality because I am known as a shy person.

The smell and taste of this kush reminds me of the natural unflavored weed that is perceived to be original. I love that herbal and piney taste and aroma. I also loved the effects it was not too strong but yet not to weak, it was just perfect. I Hope you will like it too.

Rockstar Kush walks a fine line between being very potent and mild, that makes it accommodate all types of weed smokers. I have smpled it with complete beginners and veterans who have been at this for years and it was enjoyable for both groups. It does not matter whether you are just starting out or if youve been at this for years the experience will be more or less the same.

Rockstar Kush looks a little different because its color is really dark almost leaning towards purple with bright orange hairs on the buds. The buds also have thick trichomes completing the beautiful appearance of this weed. That is just one of the aspects I favored most about this kush.

Before the sleepiness takes over, there is a period where you will get laser focus and concentration. You can use that time to be more productive and do a lot more and then when you start getting sleepy, do not fight it. rather, get enough sleep to take on the following day.

Rockstar Kush helps me remain calm in challenging or complex situations and that helps me devise a way forward instead of panicking. My problem solving skills have improved exponentially and that has made me a valuable employee.
