Breeders crossed the indica-dominant Sweet Tooth with the sativa-dominant OG Kush to create this indica-dominant hybrid. Sweet Kush has a reputation as a very potent strain, but exact THC percentages are hard to come by. The same goes for CBD levels, though this isn’t known as an especially helpful strain for patients who need that chemical. The specific ratio of sativa to indica is also unclear, but the effects fall mostly on the indica side. The immediate effect is cerebral, but that quickly fades into a lazy, sedated body buzz with deep relaxation and pain relief. The high can induce creativity and delivers a healthy dose of euphoria. The most common adverse effect is dry mouth, while paranoia and dry eyes are also reported. Sweet Kush is best at treating body pains, anxiety, and sleeplessness. It can also be used to stimulate appetite. This strain has a sweet flavor and aroma to match its name, with hints of earth and berries. Popular in Arizona and California, Sweet Kush can also be found on the legal markets in Colorado and Oregon.
Rockstar, not to be confused with its cousin “Rockstar OG” strains, is a indica dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% sativa) strain created through a cross of the popular Rock Bud X Sensi Star strains. The Rockstar high is characterized by strong-hitting effects powered by a 14-19% average THC level without the sedation that typically comes with an indica parent. The Rockstar high starts with a cerebral head rush a few minutes after toking that leaves you uplifted and extremely happy with active tendencies and motivation. As this powerful head high builds, you’ll slowly feel a creeping body buzz wash over you that leaves you completely relaxed in every single muscle, leaving you helplessly couch-locked and in a state of pure bliss. Despite these powerful muscle-relaxing effects, Rockstar surprisingly won’t leave you sedated in the least bit. Because of these powerful effects, Rockstar is said to be perfect for treating chronic pain, muscle spasms or tremors, inflammation, and mild to moderate cases of depression. This bud has an aroma of spicy grapey earth with a hint of skunky pungent herbs and a taste of spiced mulled wine with a pungent slightly skunky exhale. Rockstar buds have medium-sized dense and lumpy dark olive green spade-shaped nugs with rich purple undertones, fiery orange hairs, and frosty trichome covered purple leaves.
