About Starry Night
Named after Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpiece, Starry Night is a well-balanced hybrid. The strain’s original breeders and its exact genetic lineage are not well documented. Nevertheless, consumers testify to its ideal blend of mental and physical properties and its rich, dynamic flavor. Its THC levels have been measured at between 16% and 25%.
Starry Night’s flowers stand out with their solid formation and medium to large size. These buds, which adhere in chunky, elongated shapes, have an indica-typical structure, with a dense and compact center. The leaves on these flowers are a bright lime green and are wound through with orange and brown pistils. White trichomes glitter like stars against the background of the leaves, perhaps giving this strain its name.
When properly cured, flowers of Starry Night give off an intensely fruity aroma. There are also some bright notes of lemon hanging out underneath. Grinding up these buds, meanwhile, yields a powerfully skunky odor. Starry Night taste smooth and pleasant when inhaled. On the exhale, this smoke taste like a combination of fruit and pine.
Starry Night tends to have a slow, creeping high that may not reveal itself until quite a while after consumers have exhaled its delicious smoke. After a while, an increased flow of blood to the head may result in sensations like a flushing in the cheeks or a feeling of constriction around the temples and lower forehead. These sensations can come along with a seemingly elevated pattern of thinking, in which some concepts take on a fascination that they might not otherwise have. Smokers who are so disposed can put this cerebral energy towards demanding, detailed tasks; more creative ones, meanwhile, can use it to work on more open-ended projects. One other way that Starry Night affects the mind is its tendency to bring about a change in sensory perception. Some consumers may experience phenomena like auditory hallucinations, a distortion of depth perspective, or the odd feeling that time is passing more slowly. This psychedelic mood can be pushed even further with enhancements like a moody playlist or a visually-engaging move. As time passes -- or as dosage is increased -- Starry Night begins to unveil its heavy physical effects, weighing down limbs and eyelids in equal measure. At this point, smokers may feel a release from any tightly-held physical tension and a capacity for deep breathing; on the flip side, though, they can lose of the motivation that characterizes the early phases of this high. As Starry Night tapers down, users can enjoy its sense of calm with some quiet introspection or by kicking back with some like-minded friends. Because of its late-blooming sedative vibe, Starry Night is recommended for consumption later in the day or during early evening.
Starry Night can also be a useful strain for medical cannabis patients. It can help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain focus on a single task. Additionally, its deep and thorough relaxation can temporarily soothe the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. The strain can also dull physical pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia. Anti-inflammatory effects can take care of more common irritations like headaches. Because its onset is associated with some strong, recursive patterns of thinking, Starry Night is not recommended for those who are prone to panic or paranoia or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Seeds of this strain are not distributed for sale online; those looking to grow it at home should obtain clippings from mature plants that can be fostered as identical “clones.” While there’s little information available on specific best practices for cultivating this variety, we know that like many hybrids, it can be grown indoors or outdoors in a hot, Mediterranean-like climate. Furthermore, the bud’s indica-leaning effects suggest that its plants grow short and bushy with strong lateral branching.
Starry Night is a good all-purpose option for indica and sativa lovers alike. Its smooth comedown makes it a great way to end a busy workday.
