NorStar Genetics split their menu into 14 outdoor strains and 24 indoor strains. That’s quite a bunch to choose between, so we’ll dive into a few standout strains now to help light the way.
60% Indica-dominant The Stilton combines the finest traits from her UK Cheese and Purple Mayhem parent strains to bring you an incredibly pungent and potent hybrid strain.
By far the most distinctive feature of The Stilton (as you should expect from the name) is this strain’s standout scent, which is described by many as an intriguing blend of greasy cheddar, pink bubblegum, candy and grapefruit. It’s a smell quite reminiscent of Skunk that keeps tokers and growers coming back for more every time, and varies between phenotypes.
With the potential for inducing couchlock, this long-lasting high is one even seasoned daily smokers should approach with a degree of caution. Any fans of the infamous UK Cheese need to give this relatively easy grower a try!
Big City Lights
One of NorStar Genetics’ highly praised indoor hybrids, Big City Lights is the Sativa of choice for tokers who love their sweet berry flavors with an irresistible OG chemically kick.
These lights come from the perfect pairing of genetics from Dark Desire and Frisco OG to deliver an instantly euphoric and sedative high known to be super cerebral and dreamlike - a great choice for Netflix and chong!
Growers can expect some beautiful purple hues while Big City Lights grows, buds dotted with countless resinous crystals representing those real-world big city lights, and an intoxicating aroma throughout flowering and beyond the harvest.
A 75% Indica-dominant beauty from the generous genetic lineage of Bubba Kush and Purple Mayhem, growers looking for high-quality beans which produce dense Kush nugs filled with enticing purple hues, look no further!
Grand Poobah is capable of some hefty yields in the region of 400 grams per meter squared after an 8+ week flowering cycle. While this may not be as prodigious as some hyper-productive modern marijuana strains, the premium quality of these buds makes them well worth any cultivator’s consideration.
A fine choice for a focused and relaxing high, with a respectable THC level recorded between 16 and 22% content, Grand Poobah is beloved for its beauty, aroma, potency, flavorful terpene profile and ‘creeper’ high, as well as among sufferers of migraines and ADHD.
