Star Killer Strain

Talking about strains that come with star power, then Star Killer is among the first which comes to mind.

In theory, the only way for a star to die is to run out of combustible gas.

In other words, stars die when they burn themselves out.

If we are the gas that keeps burning, then a great way to put out the fire is to use the Star Killer strain.

Possessing a whopping THC level in the range of 26% to 29%, the Star Killer is not one to mess around with.

This heavy hitting 70% Indica strain has to power to put a stop to our hyperactivity and slow us down.

In some cases, it can shut us down for the rest of the day. As gloomy as it sounds, that is the effect it has in delivering the experience of an ultimate relaxation.

From what we have learned, the Star Killer is a two-way cross between Skywalker OG and Rare Dankness #2.

Of the two strains, many cannabis users are familiar with Skywalker OG. It is one of the popular heavy hitting Indica-dominant strains in the world.

But its other parent, the Rare Dankness #2, we do not know much about it.

In some ways, its mysterious origin seems to have increased the hype about Star Killer.

The strain, also spelled as Starkiller, has also created a name for itself since it came into being.

As a testament to its quality and potency, it has won several awards. Some of them are:

  • 2016 THC Championship, 1st place in medical hybrid
  • 2016 Cannabis Cup, 1st place in hybrid
  • 2015 THC Championship, 1st place, and overall champion
  • 2015 Rooster Colorado Cup, grand champion
  • 2014 THC Championship, 1st place in hybrid

We are confident that we have not seen the last of the Star Killer in competitions.

In fact, it is possible for the strain to continue its dominance over its field in the coming years.

The Star Killer strain is unlike many other strains. Even when compared to others with 70% Indica, its effects are different.

Although they can be similar at the onset where users feel uplifted and happier, that is where the similarity ends.

Instead of the mental high intensifying to induce euphoria, users of this strain feel hazy as a result of its heavy stoney effects.

We don’t currently sell Star Killer seeds. Check out other indica dominant seeds in our marijuana seed bank.

As the buzzing mental head high creeps down to the body, users finally succumb to the numbing physical high it brings.

It is almost guaranteed that users are going to stay on their couches or beds due to its sedative effects.

Because of that, it is not uncommon for users to fall into a deep sleep.

Star Killer Effects


Star Killer has a pungent scent of pine and lemon.

In the case of cannabis, the pine scent may not be extraordinary, but the blend of lemon does make it pleasant.

While its scent seems to be straightforward, the Star Killers taste is another story.

It has a pungent and skunky taste that can make some people raise their eyebrows, but it is also the unique blend of lemon and pine along with an earthy taste that gives it an unusual flavor.

Most people find its taste pleasant enough and the spicy hint that accompanies its smoke seems to make it smoother.

Adverse Reaction

The crippling effects of Star Killer work well for those who want to use a strain at the end of the day.

But due to its incredibly high potency, it also comes with more pronounced negative reactions.

Almost all users of this strain are bound to experience dry mouth and eyes.

In both cases, they are considered normal with the use of any marijuana strain.

Star Killer Adverse Reaction

At the same time, this is also a tough strain to handle.

For instance, there are more than a few people who will likely feel more paranoid.

Some are likely to also feel an elevated level of anxiousness.

Thus, the Star Killer is not a great strain for beginners who are better off using another strain.

Also, people who are predisposed to paranoia or anxiety may want to avoid this strain as well.


For recreational users, the use of Star Killer is for one reason only.

At the end of a long day and especially in the evening, this strain can help users relax and sleep.

It is certainly not the right strain to use if the purpose is to be more active, to have a clear head and better ability to focus.

As stated, it has sedative properties that can put one to bed. It is also for this reason why it is one of the top strains for medical cannabis users.

Its numbing effects are helpful in dealing with inflammation, as such it is great for pain-relief.

The intense high it delivers takes the mind away from pain and the sedative effects leave users sleeping peacefully.

Star Killer Medical

In as far as using the strain for mental health disorders, it can help reduce stress or make managing depression easier.

But at the same time, users should also note that it can also increase anxiety rather than reducing it.

Unfortunately, we do not have any information on the specifics of growing Star Killer.

It does appear that the plant should thrive in a Mediterranean-like climate as most others do.

Furthermore, we think it should grow well both outdoor and indoor.

Flowering Time


From what we could gather, it seems that the Star Killer strain is capable of producing around 12 to 16 ounces per square meter in an indoor garden. It does have a longer flowering time than the average as it needs around 9 to 10 weeks for it to reach maturity.


Our best estimate at this time is that this strain should be ready for harvest by the end of October. Due to lack of information, we can only estimate its yield per plant at around 16 ounces each.

  2. Rare Darkness #2

  1. I have ordered seeds from your bank and will only ever use you again as the genetics are all wonderful. I do, however, acquire seeds from the dispensary occasionally and usually the thc was 33% or once I got 4 seeds from “haunted trails” strain ( 7 ghosts X southwest stomper) at 34.5%!!
    I found a deth star, a star killer, and a starkiller X death star seed each at 33% and have now been growing all 3 for awhile. They’re all very similar and you really can only see the difference in phenotype when the buds are mature- the starkiller I believe usually ends up covered in red hairs. The death star tends to change funky colors and seems like it stretches a lil too much beginning flower but then always ends up pulling thru as the heaviest yielded plant! They really dont require much feeding, however I do give it a watered down version of my regular (super complex) formula and I always kinda treat each plant unique.
    I also have 4 ghost train haze clones going rn that require a TON of food FYI. And the BlackBerry kush by ILGM requires food too- u can really push those fu**ers hard too, but like I sed, I gave my GTH 2000ppm no. During flower and when big bushes vegging I gave em about 1500-2000 like nithin.
    Not the case for starkiller, deth star, or the 2 crossed at all and they usually end up pushing out way more bud and the bud is usually desired over everything else I have cuz it’s really damn good weed! I still do push then hard, but they havent burned ever but they do turn that dark dark green especially if u push em too long-when I flushed them the starkiller lost more color quicker and turned beutiful orangey-yellow in leaves like a sunrise, but the cross and the deth star stayed dark dark green IN HYDRO having flushed it twice with str8 water pH 6.ish a lil higher even and they wuldnt shake their color.
    I’m now in coco with bushes I begged 6 months. Hoping for some 2 PBS plants and 2 r of the starkiller/deth starcross doing well! As sed b4, I’ve still fed them EVERYTHING! (Even aloe regularly) just check my ppm and make sure it’s not too high while still playing my ghost train plants with 2000ish a lil lower if anything…
    I also have a banana OG X cookies n cream that has the best smell I’ve ever smelled, it spreads itself out (I still use stakes) but it spreads itself out on it’s own super thick stalk/branches buds early BIGGEST NUGS EVER and its ligit. My favorite strain growing. Just cut 15 clones cuz I dont have the space to do anymore but that one is similar feeding to blackberry kush- not a lot but def. Not a lil. They’re hungry plants that I’ve never run into any trouble with and always had top shelf dispensary-like results. In fact I forge mine locally as dispensary weed and no 1 has ever questioned it and believe it’s from a dispensary. Life is good in the weed community where I’m at :] but I do hope to obtain a medical license one day. Meanwhile, that is my knowledge on starkiller.
    It looks super indica however it will stretch pretty tall thru the transition. Its temperamental with temps. Do NOT let it get too cold or its gonna go purple/yellow in stalks and stop growing and stretch more and u don’t want that. Cuz like I said, its gonna stretch a tiny bit more than the average kush plant would in first couple weeks of flower.
    U can stop the stretch a bit by slaying it with PK just before flower like the week into flowering start hitting it hard them once it gets goin fall back a lil and build it bak up til the flush.
    Overall, super big fat dense nugs like I sed it is always my heaviest plant no matter what I clone it cuz I always back up my best genetics in Hope’s of sharing them with the world someday via a commercial grow op. And/or dispensary (which wuld still require a commercial grow op lol)

    If u ever get ur hands on death star or starkiller seeds GO FOR IT! and if u do get them, CRISS CROSS THEM PLZ and offer everyone all of the options! Starkiller, deth star, and crossed both ways wuld make a lot of people very happy. I hope u find seeds if you havent already Bergman! And if I can ever produce seeds I promise to gift some to you just cuz you have the BEST seed bank EVER!
