About Star Pupil
Star Pupil is the strain that started it all for Mass Medical Strains. The original operation began with a friend gifting them some unknown seeds with supposed genetics linking it to the cannabis from Thailand, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. These mystery plants were then crossbred into the company’s first proprietary strain: Star Pupil. This strain has gained notoriety in the cannabis world and even managed to bring home High Times’ “Flower of the Month” in January 2017.
Star Pupil is a unique strain, in that it is almost always purple. Although many growers will tell you that cold temperatures can turn just about any bud purple during the growing process, Star Pupil will only take on hints of green when it reaches over 95 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact, Star Pupil becomes almost black when it is exposed to the same amount of cold that other plants would turn purple from.
Although Star Pupil has tested for THC counts as high as 22%, it averages between 20-21% in most batches. This high THC count makes it perfect for medicinal use, as it is sure to alleviate your ailments. This strain is great for those that suffer from stress, stomach issues, and chronic inflammation/pain. One of the most interesting things about Star Pupil is its high CBG count. That’s right. CBG, not CBD. CBG is another cannabinoid present in most marijuana strains in amounts so small it’s not worth mentioning. In Star Pupil, however, CBG is an active ingredient that helps those that suffer from certain medical issues such as IBS.
Star Pupil manages to leave users with a strong head high despite its Indica-dominance. It leaves users feeling euphoric and uplifted, ready to take on whatever the world can throw at them. In addition to this head high come the Indica effects of relaxation, appetite, and pain relief. Combined, these effects treat just about any ailment a cannabis user could have.
Because the bright purple nugs of Star Pupil will have great bag appeal once packaged, so it won’t stay on the shelf for long! If you get lucky enough to pick up some Star Pupil, you’ll find the nugs to be tightly packed purple fuzzballs. Star Pupil is often covered in hairy orange pistils, which only serve to accentuate the bud’s purple color. In addition, its trichomes often form purple in color rather than white, which makes this bud great for creating rosin! There’s nothing quite as cool looking as an oil pen filled with purple Star Pupil, or dabbing some purple rosin!
