Pink Death Star is a visually appealing hybrid developed by Riot Seeds, the Netherlands-based breeders who have given us the flavourful Clockwork Orange. It is a cross between potent indica Death Star and Riot Seeds’ own Blood Rose, a tasty blend of Skunk #1 and Black Rose. Pink Death Star leans more toward indica sleepiness than its Death Star parent stock and has an additional depth of flavour and aroma due to its particular blend of terpenes. Great for cannabis novices and veterans alike, Pink Death Star can be a knockout, even for experienced users.
Aroma and Flavour
When properly cured, Pink Death Star gives off a very spicy aroma with notes of pepper and ginger. These palate-stinging top notes are grounded out by an earthy and musky base. Grinding up or breaking open the cone-shaped nugs yields skunk and diesel odours, likely due to the Sour Diesel and Skunk #1 in this strain’s genetics. When combusted, it burns with a harsh smoke that can induce coughing and make eyes water. Pink Death Star leaves behind a musky, herbal taste when exhaled. Notably, there are no discernible grape or berry flavours to accompany this strain’s purple colour. This is because the pigments that determine Pink Death Star’s colour do not have a corresponding effect on its flavour. Finally, this can be a very pungent smoke; those looking to keep their consumption discreet should take precautions.
Pink Death Star can be described as a creeper, often taking several minutes after smokers have savored its rich flavor before its heavy effects set in. Users may initially detect a heaviness in the limbs and the sudden desire to sit down in the closest comfortable surroundings. Eventually they may find that muscular tension is eased and that deep breathing comes more easily. Although some mental effects can be observed, these manifest more as a cloudy, dreamy state than any kind of exacting cerebral energy. These slightly psychedelic effects make Pink Death Star a great way to enjoy low-key movies or music. As dosage is increased, smokers may become couch-locked and immobilized. Because of these sleepy vibes, Pink Death Star is better suited to nighttime than morning or daytime use.
This strain has several uses for medical cannabis patients as well. Its full-body stone can provide temporary relief from anxiety, depression, and even PTSD. It can also soothe aches and pains, while anti-inflammatory properties can take care of everyday annoyances like nausea. In high enough doses, Pink Death Star can be a good way to treat insomnia. Because of its relative lack of intense cerebral effects, Pink Death Star may be a good choice for those who are prone to insomnia or who have a low THC tolerance.
Although its name is intimidating, Pink Death Star is sure to ease you into a state of deep relaxation. It’s as enjoyable for solo use as it is when shared with good friends.
