In other marijuana strain guides, we have already mentioned the link between strain names and the Star Wars series. The Skywalker strain is another proud member of this family. Unless you have never even heard of the franchise, you’ll know that Luke Skywalker is one of the principal characters.
Mark Hamill recently reprised the role he played in Episodes IV-VI in the last three movies in the saga, where he has become a Jedi Master. While the Skywalker character continually battles the forces of evil, the Skywalker marijuana strain will soon make you incapable of fighting anything. Relaxation is the order of the day with this strain, and you will inevitably sink to the couch where the use of the Force would be handy to help draw things to you.
It is definitely not for novices and in the medicinal marijuana world, it is feted as an excellent sleeping aid.
Skywalker is a popular strain across Canada.While it is usually classified as ‘balanced,’ Skywalker tends to have indica-leaning effects which become apparent as your body and mind feel a sense of calm. It is also a relatively easy strain to cultivate, which only adds to its appeal. Skywalker is a cross between Mazar and Blueberry. It is the creation of a well-known Amsterdam lab by the name of Dutch Passion Seed Company, who have managed to create a splendidly mellow weed. It is often confused with the much-hyped Skywalker OG strain, and experienced users believe the ‘original’ version is better than its OG counterpart.
Aroma and Flavour
It is a sticky and resinous strain with an elegant appearance. The nugs have sage green buds with the merest hints of purple, and they are covered in light orange hairs. Skywalker weed has a vast number of trichomes; so many in fact that the strain positively glistens when you hold it up to the light.
The calyxes and overall structure look light and airy, and the buds I saw were clearly dried and cured by an expert hand.
The aroma of the Skywalker marijuana strain is sharp and can quickly fill a room. It has a beautiful scent akin to a field full of blueberries, and the fruity sweet smell should make your mouth water. The aromatic experience is an accurate preview of the delightful taste sensation to come.
First and foremost, the sweet blueberry taste is very apparent. Indeed, experienced users could pick Skywalker out of a line-up in a blind taste test; such is its distinct flavour. You will get pine cone notes amidst the fruit, and there is also just enough spice to give this strain a kick.
If you use enough of it, you will be so high that you may imagine yourself as a Jedi Knight! If you are feeling nervous or else you can’t seem to relax, sit back and have a few tokes of Skywalker. It offers a steady buzz that makes you feel at ease with yourself and your surroundings.
Once you up the dosage, it hits you with extreme sedative effects. Initially, you may feel uplifted, happy, and possibly even euphoric, but eventually, the relaxing high spreads throughout your body and ensures you have no inclination to move from the exact spot where you are lying or sitting.
You should definitely not use Skywalker during the day unless of course, you have no plans. It is an excellent option in the late evening or at night. If you want to feel a clear-headed high, don’t use too much.
The most obvious benefit is as a sleep aid. Users claim that when you use enough Skywalker, it becomes incredibly hard to remain awake. Therefore, if you have severe insomnia, it is worth giving this strain a try. The sedative effects also make Skywalker a nice option if you need something to relax you after a stressful day.
The potency of Skywalker also suggests it is a useful option for anyone looking to manage their pain symptoms. It is prescribed to patients with period cramps, joint pain, and muscle aches. This strain has even been prescribed for people with anxiety and depression since it is said to help improve your mood.
Well loved by many for the fruity aroma and taste that is coupled with a rather mellow Indica style high. Quickly creeping in is a sense of euphoria that, while not often leading to couch-lock, will usually leave a user feeling a little lazy, perhaps even sleepy.
