Once you enter the magical world of cannabis strains, there’s no turning back.
I remember when it first hit me how wildly rich and abundant this world is. The more I explored, the more it opened up to me and showed me new strains and new possibilities.
Passionate growers are well aware of these possibilities and how the nuances in their growing techniques can produce wildly different strains.
There are potent strains that can give you amazing high sensations and there are those that relax you and/or are used for medical purposes. And how about a strain that has both properties – healing and getting you high?
Finding a balanced strain can be a challenge, but luckily, there are some solid options. One strain that is particularly interesting in that regard is the Rockstar Strain.
You can use Rockstar for recreational purposes, but also to alleviate the symptoms of many different conditions.
It’s one of the most popular strains among growers today, which is why I have to share everything I learned about it.
So, let’s get to it!
Rockstar is an Indica-dominant strain, with some traces of Sativa. It is about 70% Indica and 30% Sativa.
In appearance it is most definitely Indica, with fat leaves, hardcore roots and dense buds that are very unfriendly towards pests and mold.
You shouldn’t confuse this strain with Rockstar OG and BC Rockstar. This is a standalone strain with its own unique qualities and attributes.
The strain was initially created in British Columbia as a cross between Sensi Star and Rockbud.
Today, Rockstar is well-known for its strong effects (14-19% THC) and quite a profound aroma.
Rockstar is also one of the most popular strains in the medical community and it is used to alleviate a variety of different conditions like inflammation, muscle spasms and tremors, chronic pain, and even depression.
As the strain has strong sedative properties, it’s best for night time use. Beginners should also be wary about overconsuming it.
The key question here is – how does Rockstar make you feel?
I can say that it provides an exceptional, long-lasting experience that should sit well with any cannabis enthusiast. Recreational users will find what they’re looking for in Rockstar’s high, and it will also provide relief for some of the most common health issues that people have today.
Let’s start off by examining its taste. Rockstar’s flavor feels very earthy, spicy, and woody. There are some hints of grapes there as well.
It may take a while for the taste to take its hold on you, but once it does, you are in for an amazing experience. And if you want it to be truly exceptional, you should grind your weed first.
Similarly to the taste, the Rockstar strain’s smell is also earthy and spicy, and smells like flowers. It is quite unique.
Growing the Rockstar Strain
Rockstar can be grown both indoors and outdoors, but I definitely recommend the first option as you’ll want to protect the yield from harsh weather conditions.
The plant is very easy to grow indoors, especially if you decide to use some hydroponics. You can also use the Sea of Green method to maximize both the yield and the quality of your strain.
The flowering time indoors is typically between 8 and 9 weeks, which is ideal for most growers.
Medical Benefits of the Rockstar Strain
Rockstar has a range of medical benefits but people most commonly use it to alleviate aches and chronic pain. As Rockstar is quite a powerful stress reliever, its calming effects will help you deal with both anxiety and chronic depression.
On some occasions, you can also use Rockstar to boost your appetite and overcome bouts of insomnia. And there’s no harm in repeating that you should always be careful about overconsuming weed, because it can lead to an array of negative side-effects.
If you cross the line with Rockstar, here’s what may happen: elevated anxiety levels, panic attacks, fatigue and increased irritability.
As long as you consume Rockstar in moderation, you shouldn’t experience any of these side effects. Keep that in mind, especially if you’re a novice user.
If you’re interested in the Rockstar strain as a grower, you can find seeds online for approximately $10 per seed.
If you’d like to consume it, Tilrey offers it for $11 per gram, but you need to have a prescription.
If you have a legal dispensary or retail shop in your vicinity, my best advice is to go for a tour by an expert budtender who’ll be able to walk you through different options and you’ll know you’re getting quality stuff.
Strive to find the most affordable offer but pay attention to the quality of your product as well. No compromises there.
If you want a balanced strain that you can use for both medical and recreational purposes, you will hardly find a better choice than Rockstar.
With an incredibly tasty aroma, a range of long-lasting effects, and incredibly easy to grow, Rockstar is a perfect choice for growers and users, both beginner and experienced cannabis enthusiasts.
