Named not for Darth Vader and the Empire’s failed dream of the Death Star, but for a song by the legendary Grateful Dead, Dark Star cannabis seeds are bound to delight cultivators with their more than generous yields.

The 100% pure indica offspring of Purple Kush, and second place winner of the 1999 High Times Cannabis Cup Best Indica–Mazar I Sharif–Dark Star deeply relaxes and unwinds, making it an excellent evening strain.


What are the effects of Dark Star cannabis?

  • Relaxed
  • Sleepy
  • Euphoric

Dark Star cannabis seeds blossom into pure indica plants with a moderate yet effective THC content of 19% and impressive CBD level of 2%. The fact that Dark Star cannabis is a pure indica means that its ability to fully and deeply relax and sedate users into a sleepy state is quite potent.

Along with being such a physically soothing strain that makes for a great choice when you’re wanting a nice lazy evening at home, Dark Star provides euphoria and a sense of happiness. It’s also known for inducing a huge case of the munchies. Its sedative quality is the kind that not only loosens you up both mentally and physically, but can also end up leaving you feeling “out of it,” which is another way in which this strain makes for a fabulous unwinder.


What are the therapeutic benefits of Dark Star cannabis?

Dark Star does have a relatively high CBD content of 2%, which contributes to this strain being considered a therapeutically beneficial strain for medical users. 

Many medical marijuana patients say that Dark Star is premium choice for those suffering from chronic stress and in helping with managing stress and anxious thoughts/feelings.

This strain also has a reputation amongst users for being able to potentially provide relief for issues like muscle spasms and chronic aches and pains. Its hunger-inducing properties also means it has the potential to help those dealing with a loss of appetite, and its anecdotal ability to provide sheer relaxation and chill will likely work very much to the benefit of those combating insomnia in finding some much-needed sleep.


What does Dark Star taste like?

While not everyone is a fan of Dark Star’s pungent earth and pine smell, it’s also not a completely hideous aroma. Whether or not this strain’s fragrance is your favorite, you’ll be pleased to know that what it lacks in taste it makes up for in smell.

Along with the pungent earth and pine flavors that carry over from its smell, Dark Star also has the taste of grapes and berries, which makes for a much more enjoyable experience in the taste department.


How do I grow Dark Star cannabis seeds?

Cultivating Dark Star does require previous growing experience, somewhere in the “intermediate” level. However, Growers Choice makes things that much easier as all of our cannabis seeds are feminized. 

Dark Star can be grown in and outdoors, as well as in a greenhouse. When grown outside, this strain requires a warm and sunny environment to thrive. Ensuring it gets a minimum of 18 hours of light is necessary for getting the most out of its vegetative growth stage. As such, both outdoor and indoor cultivators will often use high-intensity lighting to make sure this happens. If growing Dark Star indoors is more realistic for you, then you can use either soil or hydroponics to successfully cultivate it. 

Because Dark Star is a bushy grower, it will require a lot of feeding. Another thing to be mindful of when growing it inside is keeping humidity levels in the proper range and using air conditioning or some kind of fan system that creates a cooling airflow to prevent mold from destroying your crops.


What do Dark Star cannabis plants look like?

Dark Star is usually medium in height when fully mature and outwardly grows quite wide. Its star-shaped nuggets are quite large, weighty, and tightly packed together and are very resinous in texture due to their rich blanketing of glistening trichomes. The buds of Dark Star are green and decked out in pistils that have a pink tint to them. Sometimes, when its flowers are entering their blooming stage, you’ll notice shades of dark purple both on the inside and outside of the nuggets.


When to harvest your Dark Star cannabis plant

While it’s true that Dark Star does require a lot of care and attention with a somewhat longer flowering time, what’s also true is that it’s a strain that will generously reward you for all your hard work. 

Should you cultivate Dark Star indoors, you can expect a huge yield of 650 grams per square meter in around 10 weeks. If you’re able to grow it outdoors, Dark Star should thank you for all the time and effort you put into ensuring its successful growth by giving you a bountiful harvest of 700 grams per plant near the end of October.

    Skunky Indica lovers will adore this strain. Grows so fast with so much yield and has a very consistent hit that relaxes me to get to sleep at the end of the day. If you aren’t into skunky tastes/smells give this one a pass. But if you love Indicas that help you relax go for this one.

    The name alone draws you in, and the growing process was smooth sailing with all seeds sprouting and germinating successfully. The high is a beautifully euphoric and relaxed journey that eventually lulls you into a peaceful sleep. With its earthy, skunky, and spicy flavor, Dark Star is the perfect strain for evenings when you need to unwind and find relief from insomnia, pain, and stress.

    New to growing, another site I bought from gave me dead seeds, decided to buy from here instead thanks to the germination guarantee. In the end, I didn’t even need it since all my seeds sprouted. The plants have been growing well the last week and I am very excited to have my first successful grow attempt.
