Everyone has probably seen or at least heard of Star Wars. The film has long been the talk of the town since the 1970s, so one must be living under a rock if that is not the case. On that note, it is almost expected that at least one of these cannabis breeders will eventually develop a strain inspired by the film.

Lo and behold, the Deathstar OG was created. A weed named after one of the most feared weapons in the film has finally joined the list of grade A cannabis varieties. It does have the same parents as the original Deathstar strain. Although, this time, a third one was added to the mix to make it even stronger than it already is. Talk about a weapon upgrade.

While it is nothing like the actual Death Star battleship from Star Wars that can wipe out a whole planet, it does have the power that even Darth Vader would want for himself and for any cannabis user who also happens to be a Star Wars fan to find this strain nostalgic.

Coming from a prestigious pedigree, Deathstar OG is one of the most coveted strains in the market among recreational and medical users. So, read on and discover what this strain is made of. The information below will show prospective users what they could be getting into if they decide to try this strain out. Just a heads up though, it is going to be a great experience.

Deathstar OG is one of those strains with a very distinguished lineage. In this case, it is said to be the child strain of three of the most popular weeds known to the cannabis community: Sour Diesel, Sensi Star, and OG Kush.

Although Deathstar OG’s original breeder is unknown, the strain’s properties are very promising, making it one of the most sought after cannabis varieties.

To wit, Deathstar OG proudly delivers an extremely potent high with its 28% maximum THC level. The strain is known to be a creeper though, but once it hits, it hits pretty hard, much like the power of the actual Death Star. It all starts in the head with a powerful euphoric sensation that effectively elevates the mood and energy of a user.

As the cerebral high mellows down, the dominant Indica concentration slowly takes over in a form an overwhelmingly relaxing sensation that can further make users feel sleepy and somewhat starving. Some users would describe the feeling like a slight struggle between wanting to nap and wanting to eat.

Now, this is where things get a little more interesting. During the day, Deathstar OG can easily put any user in a calm and relaxed state without necessarily being too sedative. The strong sedating effect somehow only comes during the night wherein users have the greater possibility of falling into a couch-locking situation.

Due to its unique effects, Deathstar OG is a perfect strain choice for daytime and nighttime use for both medical and recreational users.


Deathstar OG has the classic pungent aroma of skunk, earth, and diesel combined. However, this rather prominent scent is stabilized by some sweet notes, making the strain’s overall aroma a delightful experience to seasoned users.


The flavors of Deathstar OG clearly reflects that of its parent strains’ flavors. Users will notice the classic skunk and diesel taste of OG Kush and Sour Diesel mixed with the woody, piney yet sweet undertones from its other parent Sensi Star. This combination makes Deathstar OG a delicious strain that users can truly enjoy.

Adverse Reaction

Although it is quite normal for any cannabis variety to cause various types of adverse reactions, it is always preferable for any user to at least experience only those that are more manageable. Fortunately, the same is true to Deathstar OG’s side effects.

The most common adverse reaction of the strain is dry mouth and dry eyes. Other side effects that can manifest among users are mild cases of dizziness, anxiety, and headaches.


Although Deathstar OG is not the best strain for patients with epilepsy or seizures, its sedative properties are well-known to effectively help insomniacs get some sleep. At the same time, the strain’s uplifting euphoria can be an effective stress reliever alternative that may also be beneficial for those users dealing with depression.

Deathstar OG may be cultivated either indoor or outdoor. Although there is no available information as to the plant’s ideal outdoor growing condition, growers suggest that the plant is trimmed, dried and cured after harvest. Also, this means that a little knowledge and experience in growing cannabis would come in handy when cultivating Deathstar OG.

Flowering Time

The strain’s flowering period last for 9 to 10 weeks if grown indoors and will produce a yield of 12 to 16 ounces per square meter.

If grown outdoors, however, the buds should be ready for harvest by early to mid-October. In this case, the yield can reach 20 ounces or more per plant.
