About Star Killer according to Wikileaf
We don’t say this often, but when we do we mean it – buckle up and get ready to visit outer space. Star Killer, bred from Rare Dankness #2 and Skywalker OG, is a super potent indica-dominant strain that’s won countless awards. Her extreme set of effects, high yields, and refreshing taste make her a well-loved strain by all.
If you’re new to smoking cannabis, steer clear of this strain. Star Killer hits a high of 29% THC, offering even OG users a run for their money. Large nugs tend to feature very bright orange hairs, chunky trichomes, and enough resin to show you what you’re in for. A strong flavor combination of lemon, earth, skunk, and pine mingle on your palette and create a smoother smoke than one would imagine.
Classic stoner effects are alive and well here, as Star Killer will take you on a ride that comes complete with red eyes and a mental fog that you just can’t shake. You’ll instantly become incredibly sedated and long to become horizontal, and honestly, that’s about all you’ll be able to achieve for the next few hours. A warming body buzz only completes the experience and you’ll end up falling into such a deep sleep that even a hurricane probably wouldn’t wake you.
It’s a given that Star Killer is ideal for pain, because with THC levels this high, how could it not be? While some strains focus on mental issues including depression or stress, this bud’s claim to fame comes on the physical side of things. Most types of pain, including cramps, headaches, inflammation, and muscle spasms are soothed by her strong effects, and obviously, those with insomnia turn to this bud for sweet sweet sleep night after night.
Aside from being so damn potent, many love this strain due to her ease of home cultivation and her immense yields. Star Killer will thrive both inside and outdoors but a Mediterranean type of climate is what will ultimately make her sing. After about 9 to 10 weeks of love and care, this plant will be ready for harvest. Like many other strains, you’ll find that you have a higher yield with outdoor growth, although your indoor rewards won’t be anything to shake a stick at either.
If you hate your boss, hate your boyfriend, or just hate life in general and want to check out for the rest of the night, Star Killer is for you. We’re not saying you can’t have a good time while experiencing this high, but ultimately it becomes so sedative that it’s best for escaping the more difficult parts of your life. While relying on this bud for both recreational and medical relief is awesome, make sure you save it for the evening hours.
About Death Star according to Wikileaf
Death Star is an Indica dominant hybrid strain of marijuana known for its potency and having a creeping onset. While you may be eying this strain in particular as a Star Wars fan, it’s got a lot more going for it than just a cool name.
Death Star is a cross of the infamous Sour Diesel and Sensi Star. This cross-breeding results in Death Star having a mix of both indica and sativa effects, giving it a nice balance. This strain is renowned for having high THC Content with potent effects. The buds are thick, fat, and sticky.
Death Star features dark orange hairs on dark green leaves, but can also feature bright, green leaves with darker green accents, and the same vibrant, amber trichomes. Death Star has a pungent, Earthy aroma, many likening its powerful fragrance as similar to that of a skunk.
Bear in mind it’s going to be a bit tricky covering of the strong odor of Death Star even just breaking up the sticky buds will leave the room with that unmistakable Death Star scent. The taste is dominantly diesel with a slight citrus kick. The sweetness varies a bit, coming in waves. If you’re a big diesel fan you’ll absolutely love Death Star.
Death Star, like all strains, has its own set of medicinal applications. Many people suffering from depression find solace in medicating with Death Star. It also helps alleviate stress as well. Death Star is also great for insomnia, proving itself a very effective sleeping aid. Nausea and pain are two more ailments that Death Star can be used to relieve. Needless to say, Death Star is quite useful for a variety of disorders and medical ailments. This is a great strain to consider if you’re looking for the best qualities of both sativa and indica to satiate your woes!
Death Star’s journey began in Ohio in the early 2000s. The strain was developed by ‘Team Death Star,’ who only began popularizing the strain in 2004. Death Star then grew in popularity throughout the Midwest and up and down the East Coast. In 2010, right around a decade after Death Star was conceived, it was featured in High Times.
Death Star can be grown both indoors and outdoors, the flowering period generally lasting around 65 days. It is known to grow in short bushes, and the buds are generally smaller.
Calavec (I) aka Cold Creek Kush (MK Ultra x Chemdawg 91)
Cold Creek Kush might sound familiar and you would be correct in believing so. That’s because the Cold Creek Kush genetic lineage is already available in the CT Medical Marijuana Program. Theraplant, one of the four MMP growers, has the strain within their catalog of cultivars and have released it under the brand name “Quintica.”

CANNABINOID ANALYSIS: THC-A: 30.07% THC: 0.44% CBG-A: 0.63%
TERPENE ANALYSIS: Limonene: 0.36% ß-Myrcene: 0.24% ß-Caryophyllene: 0.72% Humulene: 0.17%
Local Journalist and CT MMP patient, John Watkins, reviewed Quintica a while back on Releaf and here is what he had to say about the offering:
Out of the container, it gave an earthy/spicy aroma. It had a really strong nose too, rich and pungent. I really liked that. Then pouring it out onto my preparation tray the flowers were entrancing with crystals and PURPLE. And man oh man, I sure do love purple…
Once the flowers were broken up, it looked much darker and gave a slightly sweeter nose. Sweet is good too. Now off to a paper.
Combustion is my preference for ingestion. I really feel you get the full flavor and sensations of the flower with this method. What can I say? I’m a traditionalist.
Once the fires were burning the air was filled with a spicy/sweet aroma. On the inhale a spicy/earthy flavor filled my taste buds while leaving a slightly sweet aftertaste on the expel. Not harsh at all, in fact, it was very smooth for the length of the entire session of consumption.
In the end, this was a nice Indica flower. Classic Indica sensations leaving the world slightly heavier and just a bit further away than normal. Very enjoyable and great for night time usage. Extremely relaxing. On a side note, it was very reasonably priced so it is likely to end up in the medicine cabinet again.
