A Heavy-Hitting Hybrid with Hellishly High Harvests
Well known in the cannabis community for her strong, pungent and distinctive aroma, Star Killer Feminized is loved for more than just her scent, but also for the mahoosive levels of THC content she contains. Not to mention the soaring and relaxing highs she can provide. At up to 29% THC, this heavy-hitting herb can knock flat even the most seasoned toker with only a moderate dose, and as such is not for inexperienced smokers.
A two-way cross between strains that are Indica powerhouses in their own right, this hybrid is the result of breeding between Skywalker OG and the considerably rarer (but just as sought after) Rare Dankness #2.
The resulting Star Killer is one of the most potent strains of cannabis on the market and unsurprisingly is well decorated for such an achievement, receiving the 2016 High Times Cannabis Cup in the hybrid category.
Notable for her earth and sugary lemon flavors, this pot is a rollercoaster of a high that, like most, begins in the head. Gently uplifting the mind into a state of cerebral euphoria, the bodily effects of these buds are so fast you’ll never feel their onset. Instead, you'll find yourself suddenly basking in a bath of bliss and tranquility that if kept low and slow will leave you lucid, but in larger doses will lull you down to sleep.
It’s no real surprise that a strain this powerfully tranquilizing is well-loved by medical tokers seeking relief from insomnia or chronic pain disorders. Thanks to the herb's effects on the mind, she’s also excellent for aiding those with stress and anxiety.
Star Killer Feminized is something of a mystery when it comes to cultivation, and though we can say for certain she’s not for novice growers, ask for more than that and things get a tad fuzzy. Thanks to the rareness of one of her parent strains, all we can really say is that she’s sensitive to certain fluctuations and requires some fair experience to manage.
Oh, and her yields are truly humongous, and not to be missed.
Flavor and Fragrance of Star Killer Feminized
A notably strong aroma, Star Killer Feminized has a scent that’s attention-seeking and reeking - boasting hefty notes of earth and sweet citrus that though pungent, balance each other well. Her smoke and fragrance is of the type that tends to linger, offset by sweet notes of Kush.
Once combusted, this herb releases a flavor of earth and pine beneath her sugary lemon notes, and her smooth smoke grows a little spicy on the exhale.
When you read that a strain has a THC content of up to 29%, you know you're looking at ganja to be taken seriously. Indica-heavy and hard-hitting, the high of this herb is potent as hell. An absolute thrill of a ride, beginning with a gentle cerebral sensation that intensifies quickly into sheer tranquility.
Once the head highs have nicely set in, Star Killer Fem kicks you back with a wave of relaxation that’s so fast-acting you hardly even notice she’s got you pinned down. She begins oh-so-mildly in the back of the head before stretching across the body to induce a feeling of sleepy grogginess that thoroughly locks you to the couch in a blissful daze.
Sedating as she is, even seasoned smokers will find this herb is enough to bring on a deep and restful sleep. However, if your dose is kept small enough, you’ll find that these buds can soften the body whilst leaving the mind lucid. Only in larger doses will dreamland come a-calling. Still, best save this strain for after work, or an evening toke.
Star Killer’s high THC is not to be trifled with, and newbies should look to start off with something milder rather than a joint of this. Those with a sensitivity to THC might want to look elsewhere, too, as this pot's potency can lead to headaches, dizziness, increased paranoia and the onset of anxiety. And that’s in addition to the usual cottonmouth and dry eyes.
Medical Uses of Star Killer Feminized
As you’d imagine, the intensely sedating Indica side of Star Killer Feminized makes her a popular choice in the medicinal marijuana (MMJ) community for pain relief and the treatment of insomnia.
Capable of putting tokers into a deep state of relaxation with only a moderate dose, this herb can alleviate fatigue with the all-important remedy of sleep, and may also be used as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. As such, her all-natural properties can work to provide relief to those suffering from arthritis, migraines, fibromyalgia, muscle cramps and multiple sclerosis.
Boasting a head high that’s surprising for an Indica-dominant strain, the upbeat attitude and mood-lifting effects of this cannabis can be of great therapeutic benefit to those suffering from psychological concerns such as stress, anxiety, depression and PTSD.
Growing Star Killer Feminized Seeds
An amazingly high-yielding strain, unfortunately, Star Killer Feminized isn’t one for newbie growers, as she requires a fair bit of experience to handle. Still, there are aspects of her growth that make her a great choice - in addition to her hefty harvests - and she’s able to thrive in both a controlled indoor environment and outdoors.
The flowering time of this beauty is longer than most Indica-leaning strains, at around 9 to 10 weeks, and she’ll produce around 1.63 ounces of sticky nugs per square foot when she’s ready for harvesting.
Until then, Star Killer is sensitive to fluctuations in pH levels and should be closely monitored to ensure her environment is optimum, as high temperatures can damage the final results.
Grown outdoors, this plant is much like most marijuana variants, and prefers a warm and sunny environment along the lines of the Mediterranean, California or Australia. In the best conditions, she’ll be ready for harvesting around the middle of October, and will produce around 21 ounces of buds per plant.
Famous for her pungent stench, this earth and lemony strain is actually a hard-hitting, fast-acting herb that can knock flat even the most seasoned smokers of the 420 scene without batting an eyelid. Evidenced by a face-melting 29% THC content.
Star Killer Feminized is a recreational and medicinal godsend, and well-loved for the soaring cerebral journey she begins with and the heavy as hell Indica body-stone she ends up on, making her ideal as a pain-killing and for ensuring a good night’s sleep.
Unfortunately, her mysterious heritage makes for very little in the way of useful growing advice. All we can tell you is that you’ll need some experience and plenty of baggies, since these feminized seeds will grow to provide copious yields. Even if you’re unsure of the specifics, she’s certainly worth a go!
