Starman is a hefty proprietary strain from Pilot Farms, straight out of Oregon. Although its lineage remains a secret to this day, it is likely a combination of several highly potent strains. The potency of Starman is one of the reasons it is sought after by consumers. Even heavy, daily-use medical patients suggest that you take it slow with Starman, as the high creeps in strong and fast.
Out of the package, users will notice that the Starman buds are tightly packed bright green nuggets covered in milky white trichomes. It has a strong, pungent smell that blends the scents of pine, candy, and flowers with herbal spices. The scents, like with most strains of marijuana, become incredibly strong flavors once the bud has been burned. Some have described the taste as similar to the smoothness of a gin and tonic, or a candy made from pine needles. Although this mix of flavors might seem odd, many have noted that the flavor profile is so good they refuse to burn the bud. Rather, they exclusively use dry herb vaporizers with Starman so they can better experience Starman’s flavor profile.
Although the word creep is used to describe the onset of the high from Starman, it should by no means be underestimated. The term creep is only used to describe how stealthy the high is. It is fast and strong when it finally hits, leaving many coughing their way to euphoria. The high begins with a euphoric, energetic high that makes you want to clean your kitchen or organize a file cabinet. This is quickly accentuated by a strong, tingly body high sure to ease any inflammation or pain.
Although it is a hybrid, Starman nugs tend to grow the way Indica nugs grow: short, dense, and covered in trichomes. The color of this strain varies depending on the temperature and conditions it was grown in, often photographed as a dark green color.
Starman, because of its potency, has incredible medical uses. Many report that it works faster than most pain pills, and it manages to ease the pain without all the negatives of an opioid. Many use Starman to treat inflammation, arthritis, migraines, and other forms of physical aches and pains as it causes users to feel incredibly relaxed, relieving all tension in their body.
For some users, Starman is an excellent way to combat PTSD nightmares and depression. As Starman relaxes most users, those that choose to lie down following their session will likely fall asleep have some of the most restful sleep of their lives. Many have reported that it not only prevents PTSD nightmares but is also good at helping de-escalate from them should you have one. Because this strain follows up on its creativity and euphoria with deep relaxation and often sleep, it is recommended to use Starman after an incredibly taxing day at work or in the evening right before bed.
