Death Star is an indica cannabis strain created by cross-breeding both Sensi Star and the classic Sour Diesel. Death Star is very appealing to the eyes, generally consisting of mellow green leaves, and minimal, subtle, orange hairs. Perfectly round and dense buds covered in sticky white trichomes provide a look that can truly match the wonderful healing effects.
The aromas associated with Death Star pay homage to its parent strains, having a very pungent, and diesel-like flavour. Overall, Death Star has a very potent, skunky and sweet essence, giving it a very impressive and hard to contain nose.As an indica strain, Death Star offers the relaxing and pain alleviating effects of an indica high, while also providing the uplifting feeling of a sativa high which counter-acts the ‘couch lock’ feeling generally associated with indica flowers.
Death Star is a very, very, potent strain, with laboratory results showing THC levels averaging roughly 18% and with levels as high as 26%! Death Star’s medicinal qualities lie specifically in its abilities to aid with the treatment of ailments like anxiety, depression, stress and even to treat physical pains and aches. Regardless of whether you are a medical marijuana patient or a recreational user, Death Star offers a great high each time.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Barack Obama once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Hybrid vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.

Indica strains originated from the mountain ranges of Asia and as a result, developed many features to protect itself from the harsh environments. Indica plants are known for being shorter, and bushier, with thicker layers of resinous THC. The high of indica strains are defined by the “couch-lock” effect they have on users. Indica strains serve well as relaxation strains, or to aid with pain and sleeping ailments. The calming, sedating effects of indica strains make it excellent for night-time usage or off-work hours.
