Stars with Death Star

One of the benefits of legalized recreational marijuana being on the rise is the availability of different strains. People are now being introduced to and even creating tensions they otherwise would not have been.

One such strain that has begun to take off in popularity nationwide is Death Star. Death Star has been around since 2004 and has become a superstar among marijuana strains. Especially amongst Star Wars fans due to its spacing out, relaxing effect. 

Honestly, Death Star is the perfect strain to kick back and relax while having yourself a Star Wars marathon. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about Death Star and why you should let it take you for a ride among the stars.

What is the Death Star?

The Death Star strain hails from the great state of Ohio. It is an Indica dominant hybrid at 75% Indica and 25% sativa. Death Star is the result of cross-breeding Sour Diesel and Sensai Star. The combination produces a relatively robust THC level of 18-27%.

The CBD only comes in at 1%. However, this is still significantly higher than most strains. So those looking for a significant, relaxing increase and symptom relief should start here.


The skunky, earthy aroma given off by Death Star is one of the few drawbacks. Trying to be sneaky with this strain is like walking around with a giant neon sign with an arrow pointing at you and flashing. Like always, it's best not to avoid trying anything sneaky when handling this strain. 

The taste is similar to the scent except for the mild citrus kick at the end. Sweetness will come in waves mostly. For fans of diesel, you'll love the Death Star strain. 

Visually, Death Star can have bright green leaves with darker green accents or dark orange hairs on dark green leaves. The buds are fat, thick, and sticky.

While not the most incredible smelling, diesel fans will love the taste and appreciate the buds' unique and vibrant amber and orange tones. 


When it comes to growing marijuana, few strains are as easy as Death Star. This strain is probably the most accessible strain to grow. This is because of its resistance to most common diseases, mildew, and molds.

Some speculate the scent may be part of a defensive mechanism, while others admit they have no idea. Whatever the reason, Death Star is absolutely repugnant to pests and parasites. This is good news when it comes to harvesting successful growth. 

The growth period is relatively short, with a flowering period of around 8 to 9 weeks. You should plan on an outdoor harvest somewhere around October. Indoor grows usually yield an average of 14 ounces, while outdoor grows are around 12%.

Effects/Medical Benefits

The onset is slow, the build-up intense, the suspense nearly unbearable as you make that slow, agonizing climb to the top. Think of riding a roller coaster to the top of the highest drop; the ascent is nearly intolerable, the anticipation terrible. But that sweet pay-off of the fall is worth every bit of it.

Once the high hits you, like the sudden roller coaster drop, it hits hard. You'll experience a complete and total feeling of relaxation, calm, and euphoria. This is a great strain to achieve a totally relaxed body high. 

But if it's your first go with this strain of marijuana, go easy. This strain will eradicate any bad moods you may have and your will and motivation to leave the couch. So, prepare for couch-lock with plenty of snacks, drinks, movies, and video games.

Because of these effects, Death Star is great for relieving symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress. It can also help with chronic pain thanks to the body high it gives. 

A Death Star, the Rebels, Could Support

Death Star is one of those nearly-perfect strains of marijuana. It offers something for almost everyone. It is easy to grow and cultivate, requiring only an 8-9 weeks flowering. 

The scent could leave something to be desired. However, fans of diesel will love the taste. Those suffering from depression, anxiety, or stress will enjoy the euphoric, calm, and relaxed feelings it elicits. 

And if you suffer from chronic pain, Death Star's body high will help to mask the pain and grant you some relief. While the name sounds ominous, Death Star is one of the best strains for medicinal or recreational use.
