Rockstar, a cross between Rockbud and Sensi Star, is a potent indica-dominant hybrid that delivers strong effects without debilitating sedation. With aromatic notes of spice and grape, Rockstar is a favorite medicine for headaches, pain, and sleep disorders. Its powerful body and cerebral effects make Rockstar popular among growers, who typically harvest their outdoor plants in mid-October. For those who prefer indoor gardens, Rockstar grows best using the “sea of green” method with a 56 to 63 day flowering time.
Taking second place in a High Times Cannabis Cup hardly denotes a second rate strain, Rockstar took second place in the 2012 hybrid Category. The maternal strain chosen by the breeders, Bonguru Beans, is Soma A+’s strain Rockbud. Rockbud is a conglomeration of Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean, a landrace Indica from Afghanistan and Afghani Hawaii. Bonguru bred the mother with Sensi Star, a mostly Indica hybrid from Paradise Seeds. Easing tension, loosening muscles and causing users to feel happy, Rockstar is an Indica that does not strongly act as a sedative.
The earth and citrus flavors of Rockstar may be used to deliver potent pain and muscle spasm relief. Its euphoric effects may be used to help deal with anxiety, depression and stress. Some do find that it helps them rest easy. Others use it for migraines and nausea.
When Bonguru Beans set out to create this strain, they had an indoor setup in mind but Rockstar can do just as well outside. Plants do well in soil or hydroponics and can be ready in eight to nine weeks. This strain can do well in a Sea of Green or can be grown as a multi-branching plant. Outdoors this strain can reach as tall as two meters and may yield as much as a pound per plant. A good choice for beginners, Rockstar tends to produce about a half pound indoors.
