Starfighter, an indica-leaning cannabis plant (60% indica/40% sativa), produces airy but rotund nugs caked in a layer of frosty kief so dense it looks like it was hung out to dry in a blizzard. The scent from these flowers resembled pine needles spritzed with lemon juice, and the flavor from the smoke has an earthy, herbal quality.
Lab tests put its potency at around 15-20% THC, so a skilled cultivator can harvest this strain at a greater-than-average strength.
This strain has a creeper quality to it, so it won’t hit you right away. As it creeps in, you’ll find your mind settling into a nice hazy stone, eventually leading you to the couch where you can spend the rest of your session. Starfighter is recommended for those with low moods, chronic pain, menstrual cramps, exhaustion, or trouble sleeping.
Common side effects include cottonmouth. High doses may cause anxiety.
