It’s hard to predict what the effects of this offering maybe since it is not a well-known cross. However, Solex is similar to another CT Pharma strain called Skyleve. Skyleve is a cross between Rhino, Starkiller and Hash Plant.
What are these strains?
Blueberry is a popular, flavor-forward indica hybrid with a strong genetic backbone. It is a three-way cross between an indica Afghani parent and sativa Thai and Purple Thai variant parents. Blueberry was originally developed in the 1970s or 80s by DJ Short, a mysterious but prolific breeder who’s been dubbed the “Willy Wonka of pot.” Blueberry is distinguished by an unmistakable fresh blueberry smell and taste that have made it an enduring favorite. Blueberry is popular nationwide. It won top marks in the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup for Best Indica and best strain overall. Blueberry has a THC content that ranges between 15% and 24%.
Flowers of this strain are small and densely-packed, as one might expect of an indica-dominant variety. The compact forest green leaves are often flecked with traces of purple and red. These latter colors develop due to high concentrations of pigments called anthocyanins in this strain’s genetics — as the plants are exposed to colder than average temperatures during the growing period, these pigments are activated, bringing out colorful hues. The leaves are coated in almost transparent trichomes, which may be harder to see than that milky or amber-colored glands covering similarly resinous strains. Nevertheless, buds of Blueberry are very sticky and may be difficult to break up by hand without the use of a grinder. This strain’s bag appeal isn’t just limited to its eye-catching hues — when cured properly, the flowers immediately give off an aroma of fresh blueberries. This sweet and slightly tart smell bears some resemblance to the odor of the Purple Thai parent strain. Breaking open buds of Blueberry gives off some more complex scents of spice and musk, reminiscent of Afghani varieties. When buds are directly combusted, some skunkiness is evident. Smoke is surprisingly smooth for an indica, and has a sweet blueberry taste on inhale and exhale with no lingering funk.
Often described as a “one hit and quit” strain, Blueberry is notably potent, even for experienced cannabis enthusiasts. Users are quickly struck with a sense of physical heaviness that may be disorienting in situations that require mobility or coordination. In relaxed settings, this physical sensation can translate into a therapeutic calmness, allowing users to unwind after a long day or week of work. The sativa genetics confer some slight mental effects, but these take the form of euphoric uplift more than of cerebral thoughtfulness; smokers may feel chatty or even giggly. In high enough doses, Blueberry will leave users heavy and couchlocked — this is not an ideal strain for productivity and is better suited to tranquil evening use. Medically speaking, Blueberry has almost narcotic properties. It is of use to those with pain conditions — both short-term pain due to injury or exercise or long-term chronic pain related to disease or nerve damage. It can also help relieve some of the troubling symptoms of stress, anxiety and PTSD, creating a physical relaxation strong enough to ease a racing, pre-occupied mind. Most notably, Blueberry can induce a deep and lasting sleep and therefore serve as an antidote to entrenched insomnia. Side effects of this strain include the typical dry mouth and red eyes. Its heaviness can also result in droopy, unfocused eyes. As noted, a little bit of Blueberry goes a long way and its high is said to last longer than average. 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. Wikileaf
About Hash Plant
Hash Plant is an Indica dominant hybrid strain of cannabis. This is a strain with a bit of history, starting it’s journey in the 1980’s in Holland, where it soon traveled to the Northwest US. It is rumored to be a cross between Northern Lights #1 with the original Hash Plant strain. Hash Plant was a renowned building block of many Sensi Seeds strains over the years, although it was rare to find outside of the Cannabis Castle breeding program. It was later reintroduced to the market by Sensi Seed Bank in 1999.
The Hash Plant nuggets hold an earthy, woody aroma, with a hint of hash and a dash of sweetness for good measure. The smell, though quite distinct, is not overly pungent (or offensive to non-users). The deliciously spicy taste gives way to a quick and powerful body stone. The tight buds are simply covered in resin, that dries into a delicious crispiness. The nuggets feature medium to dark green leaves, with deep red hairs.
The effects make users deeply relaxed, and some may even become couch locked or sleepy. This makes it a good choice for treating insomnia. Hash Plant is used to treat Gastrointestinal Disorder, as well as Crohn’s Disease. The pain fighting effects prove useful in treating migraines, acting as a clutch migraine deterrent at their onset. Those suffering anxiety may also use it to alleviate symptoms and relax. It can also help those afflicted with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This is more suggested for night time use, or on those lazy, relaxing days with no responsibilities or obligations to fulfill. Wikileaf
