The somewhat ominously named Death Star weed is an Indica dominant weed that was created in Ohio by crossing Sour Diesel and Sensi Star, which has won a handful of awards in the Indica section of the Cannabis Cup over the years. It’s been a popular weed across the American Mid-West and the East Coast – especially after a 2010 feature on the weed in High Times magazine.
With its Sour Diesel parentage, it’s no surprise that Death Star weed has a very strong smell while it grows, which is reminiscent of skunk and diesel fumes. When smoked, the taste is somewhat gentler. It still has some sour notes but these are tempered with a noticeable sweetness and fruity tones. The high hits quickly and is likely to leave you euphoric but couchlocked. Inexperienced smokers should approach this weed with caution. Medically, this weed is recommended for sleeplessness, poor appetite and pain relief.
Death Star seeds produce plants of medium height. The sticky buds are a mid-green colour and feature orange to red hairs and a heavy coating of shiny crystals. THC content is a potent 20 percent.
Indoors, this plant thrives in soil or hydro and the flowering time is eight to nine weeks. Yields are in the medium range.
You can grow the Death Star strain outdoors as long as you choose a sheltered, sunny spot and plant out seedlings when there is no risk of frost.
Death Star weed is renowned for its high THC levels and the resulting potency of its high. The sour flavor may not be to everyone’s taste but if you enjoy the Diesel type strains, then you’ll appreciate this weed.
