Dark Star, or sometimes written as DarkStar, is a 100% pure indica strain that was bred by TH Seeds for the purpose of creating a medical strain that was true to its Afghan roots without overpowering its benefits. This strain was born by crossing two already infamous strains, Purple Kush and Mazar-I-Sharif, to create this mind-numbing, though not particularly strong, bud that is a favorite amongst all users whether medical or recreational is your top choice.
It's not really too surprising that this is a medicinal favorite, especially amongst newer users, as its THC comes in on average at around 19% and almost guarantees consistent results. Covered in crystal trichomes and pink hairs, these forest green, almost navy blue, buds are truly a sight to see. The smell is aromatic with coffee and earth notes on the forefront and hints of tangy kush on the back. The taste is sweet and rich with herbs and coffee notes dancing on your palate.
The high hits you right from the jump, leaving you hazy and euphoric immediately. Though the cerebral effects are short-lived, sometimes even non-existent, the body buzz is long lasting and fully relaxing. As happiness and tingles fill your head and neck, the slow creeping warmth will make its way down your back and out to your limbs. As it does, it wipes you of any motivation and gives you pleasant, uplifting thoughts. This phase lasts for hours if you’re one of the lucky ones that don’t fall right to sleep. Be sure to set yourself up with some snacks as this strain kicks the munchies in hard.
This is an ideal bud for those who suffer from insomnia, chronic pain, nausea, or muscle spasms as it is an all over sedative that will wipe out any and all pain in minutes. Because it offers an uplifting high, it is also great for the treatment of symptoms regarding mental health and mood disorders such as depression, stress, anxiety, bipolar, and mild cases of PTSD. Be aware, because the CBD levels of this strain are almost untraceable it is not recommended for any illness where CBD is required as part of the treatment.
As if you needed another reason to love this DarkStar we offer you this: it’s a self-blooming dream strain. You’ll want to flex your patience during the vegetative stage, but beyond that, you’ll find this to be exactly the plant you’ve wished for. On top of all of its other positive attributes, this indoor/outdoor flowering plant has a harvest time of around 9 to 10 weeks and will give the green thumb a well above average yield. It tends to be a tall plant, so if you are cultivating indoors grooming will be vital.
This sweet latte flavored bud is a great choice for anyone looking to relax after a long day at work, or better yet to relieve some stress and pain built up throughout the day. If you suffer from low appetite, enjoy DarkStar with a snack close by and settle in for the night.

Dark Star’s true indica effects are as spacey as its name suggests: a deep, relaxed sensation throughout the body accompanied by a heavy cerebral calm. Though celestial in its effects, the strain is more likely homage to the Grateful Dead’s song “Dark Star.” Very dence and a sour smelling strain.
