Death Star, also known as Death Star OG, is an Indica-dominant hybrid cannabis strain known for its high THC percentage and strong effects. It’s named after the famous Death Star from the Star Wars movies, which was ultimately destroyed in the end. But unlike the Death Star it’s named for, this strain is still thriving and available at dispensaries near you. 

Genetics and Origins 

Death Star was first bred by Team Death Star back in the early 2000s. It’s a cross between Sour Diesel, a Sativa-dominant hybrid, and Sensi Star, a heavy Indica strain. Typically, Death Star has a ratio of about 75% Indica and 25% Sativa. It has some of the best aspects of both of its parents, which we will get more into below. 

This strain quickly became popular after it was launched, and it has earned acclaim and awards including a feature in High Times in 2010 and 2nd place in the 2014 Denver High Times Cannabis Cup. 

Death Star buds are often sticky with dark green and orange coloring rich with trichomes. It also has purple woven throughout, characteristic of its Indica background. Another notable feature of this strain is its scent, which is pungent, earthy, and skunky with a hint of jet fuel. 

Death Star Strain Effects 

Although the Death Star strain can’t wipe out planets in one go, it does possess strong qualities. Like other Indicas, it affects both the body and mind to induce feelings of relaxation, calm, sleepiness, and couch lock syndrome. 

The dominant terpenes in Death Star include a-pinene, myrcene, b-pinene, nerolidol, and ocimene, which are ideal for treating conditions like insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain, stress, nausea, and eating disorders. The small CBD content in this strain also helps with the above issues. With THC levels hovering around 22%, it’s important to start slow with Death Star. It only takes a little bit to feel the desired effects. 

Information for Growers 

Death Star is very easy to grow and cultivate, making it ideal for growers of any experience level. It’s resistant to mold, mildew, and pests and can thrive in indoor or outdoor settings, although it does better indoors. 

It reaches the flowering stage in 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors. Death Star does best at temperatures between 68 and 80 degrees and prefers relatively low humidity compared to other strains. Practices like trimming will help you ensure maximum yield, which averages to about 12-14 ounces per plant. 

Death Star loves organic nutrients like compost tea, nitrogen, phosphorous, and B-52 supplements. Give it around 18 hours of light daily to help it reach its full potential. You can even play music for your plants! By following these tips, you will surely end up with plenty of the Death Star strain to enjoy for yourself or share with friends.
