Auto CBD Star was created to satisfy the growing demand for high-CBD strains, for the treatment of certain medical conditions, such as epilepsy. As its name suggests, it’s based on the original CBD Star, with the addition of Ruderalis to make it autoflowering.
Although the name emphasizes the CBD content, the 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC means that you also get about 10% THC. While this is considered very low by modern standards, it is enough to make itself felt with a slightly uplifting high and some fast-acting pain relief. You will then slip easily into the comfort and relaxation of a deep, full-body stone. The fact that Auto CBD Star has a massive 10% CBD means that it’s best kept for use at night. However, if your medical condition means you need daytime treatment, the key point to remember is to allow yourself sufficient time to regain your focus before going out.
One of the benefits of Auto CBD Star is that it is fairly meteoric in its growth rate. It can be ready in as little as 6 weeks (seed to bud). As it’s an autoflowering strain, there is no specific harvest period as such, so in principle, you can grow it outdoors whenever you like. In practice, Auto CBD Star likes warm, dry weather so keep this in mind when planning an outdoor grow. Strains which grow as quickly as this tend to have low yields and this is true of Auto CBD Star. Indoor growers could collect up to 120g/m2 and outdoor growers are looking at up to 230g per seed. While this may not seem like much, the lower yields have to be set against not only the speed, but also the ease with which this strain can be grown.
Many modern growers will be happy to hear that Auto CBD Star is one of the most compact strains around. Regardless of whether you grow indoors or outdoors, you can expect your plants to reach a height of between 1M and 1.2M, without any need for training. This is not only good news in terms of space, but also good news when it comes to maintaining good ventilation. This is crucial to the success of any marijuana grow, even when dealing with a strain as straightforward and unfussy as Auto CBD Star. Otherwise, the fact that Auto CBD Star is so quick to grow means that it has minimal time to be attacked by the likes of mould, diseases and pests. Plus it has a robust genetic background to help ward off attacks. Those same genetics also make Auto CBD Star pretty forgiving of beginners learning their way as they go along. Its compact dimensions mean that it requires very little in the way of water and nutrients.
Auto CBD Star has a mild taste and aroma which most people are going to find palatable if not inspiring. It’s a combination of incense and musk and is neither particularly sweet nor particularly sour.
