Understandably you may feel like you wandered onto a Star Wars wiki and I’m about to tell you about the dark lord himself. Hilariously, this strain is a combination of Death Star and Grandpa’s Breath strains, so there’s an award to be had for whoever came up with calling it Palpatine. Sure, he’s been reduced to a crusty He-Man villain and sloppy plot device in the new movies, but maybe you can pretend Star Wars ended in 1983? Maybe the Palpatine strain can help you get back there.
As a grower, you can expect Palpatine to flourish in a greenhouse, inside, or outside. The dark side isn’t picky. In around 10 weeks, you can expect flowers during October. Palpatine’s nugs are like fluffy green popcorn bits, splashed with purple (please don’t say that out loud). Not the most intimidating outfit for an evil lord, but he’s a loveable evil lord, after all. Everyone loves Palpy.
The Palpatine high makes you feel heady, floating, with a happy rush. You’ll be relaxed and happy on this strain, with your pain evaporating as you find your euphoric balance. 20% THC isn’t the greatest power in the galaxy, but it works for almost any user as a relaxing day-off strain. If you suffer from chronic pain conditions, regular migraines and headaches, chronic stress, or conditions like ADHD and ADD, Palpatine can help.
If you suffer from a loss of appetite or bouts of nausea, Palpatine could convince you to eat again. It has an appetizing spicy flavor, a dank, diesel taste with a touch of sourness. Dungeons Vault Genetics (not Empire Genetics, unfortunately) made this strain for growers in the northern hemisphere, though users can enjoy it anywhere. Its yield is average, its flavor is typical and palatable, its THC is middling, and its effects are comforting. Not exactly the harsh lord of pain and master of oblivion you might expect.
This strain levels out your mood, relieves chronic inflammation, stress, and pain, and as a result, makes a convincing argument to join the dark side. No matter where you grow it, Palpatine can help you shave the edge from chronic pain, stress, and mental unrest. It’s far from an anger-inducing, energizing link to your evil side. If you don’t mind a pungent fuel aroma and a spicy taste profile, you should give Palpatine a try. Relaxation will make you stronger.
