Death Star is an Indica dominant cross between a Sensi Star father and a Sour Diesel mother. First bred in Ohio by “Team Death-Star” in the early 2000s, the strain has gained a reputation for its Sour Diesel flavor and compact growth structure. The strain produces short, stout plants with dense buds, taking approximately 65 days to mature after the 12/12 light-cycle switch. It thrives in the Sea of Green (SOG) environment and flourishes when grown in a hydroponic setup. Available as a clone-only strain, Death Star won second place at the 2014 Denver High Times Cannabis Cup as the People’s Choice Award.
The Death Star Strain is the potent cross of Sensi Star and Sour Diesel and has the shared sativa and indica effects of its parents. It has a mixed taste that combines sweet, skunk, and fuel aromas into a very potent fragrance that isn’t easy to hide. This strain may not have the ability to destroy planets, but it does have quite the powerful buzz. Effects can be slow to onset, but once they do, Death Star takes away all cares and replaces them with a state of relaxed euphoria. Great for daytime or nighttime use.
Up to 24-26% THC
It is easy to dismiss Death Star OG as a “medical grade” strain due to the Star Wars-inspired name, but after doing some digging, it is clear that this combination of Sour Diesel, Sensi Star, and OG Kush is not only great for patients looking for an anti-depressant medication, but is also is an excellent appetite stimulant for those who need to put on weight or up their caloric intake. Death Star OG is an indica-dominant hybrid with an above average THC percentage and very high levels of CBC, which explains why patients consider this strain to be so euphoric. It is also near impossible to avoid “the munchies” after medicating with this strain, because there is no CBD or THCV to counteract the hunger-inducing effects brought on by the THC and indica genetics.
