The flagship Indica strain of the HortiLab Seeds collection, StarBud comes to us from a mysterious clone originating in the Midwest United States and gifted to the team from a talented American grower.

Cultivators can expect around 55 to 65 days for indoor flowering and an average yield come harvest time of truly champion-worthy nugs that are as popular among recreational as with therapeutic tokers worldwide (and ideal for creating hash or other extractions).
Created through a collaboration with legendary Karma Genetics, the StarKush strain combines the flagship strains of both seed banks (StarBud from HortiLab and Biker Kush from Karma) into an extraordinary genetic cannabis cocktail.
StarKush is a suitable specimen for the novice grower with little experience behind them, known to be an Indica-dominant hybrid capable of producing bountiful yields of 400 to 500 grams per meter squared in a super short 65 days of flowering.
With her spicy and floral flavor profile and notable Kush terpenes at play, StarKush delivers a delectable delight alongside her intensely relaxing and sedative influence.
