Guava Kush, a rather obscure newcomer, competed in the 2014 Los Angeles Cannabis Cup. Beyond that, details about this strain are somewhat unreliable. It’s reputed to be a sativa-dominant hybrid with a sativa/indica ratio of 35:65. But the effects suggest an even closer match, as Guava Kush delivers a true mix of physical and cerebral high: relaxing, creative, tingly, sociable, and occasionally sleepy. Side effects could include paranoia, dry eyes, or dry mouth, though there’s little public information on the subject. Chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety may all be treated with this strain. The flavor is sweet, tropical, and fruity, while the aroma is similar. The nugs are a mix of dark and light green, together with amber hairs and a healthy layer of trichomes on the surface. THC levels are reportedly quite high, exceeding 21% in at least one publicly available test. But there is essentially no CBD in Guava Kush, making it a less-than-ideal choice for treating seizures or other conditions that respond to CBD.
Superstar is an indica dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% sativa) strain created by breeders at the infamous Delta-9 Lab farms in Amsterdam as a double backcross of the popular Sensi Star strain. This dank bud boasts a THC level ranging from 17-23% on average and a powerful combination of both indica and sativa effects. Users describe the Superstar high as one that is very well balanced with a clear-headed sativa high that is very enlightening and introspective with a mellow body high without sedation. You'll feel very creative and inspired with a mild sense of laziness but you'll remain completely functional. Upon the come down, users oftentimes will find themselves becoming utterly relaxed and falling into an experience of moderate couch-lock and sedation. Due to these potent effects, Superstar is an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic migraines and tension headaches, pain, depression, and fatigue. Superstar has a pungent earthy floral taste and an aroma of freshly planted lavender flowers.
Death Star is the potent cross of Sensi Star and Sour Diesel and has the shared sativa and indica effects of its parents. It has a mixed taste that combines sweet, skunk, and fuel aromas into a very potent fragrance that isn’t easy to hide. This strain may not have the ability to destroy planets, but it does have quite the powerful buzz. Effects can be slow to onset, but once they do, Death Star takes away all cares and replaces them with a state of relaxed euphoria. Great for daytime or nighttime use, this Ohio native now has fans throughout the galaxy.
Tahoe OG offers a powerful mix of heady india and body-oriented sativa, with a 10:90 sativa/indica ratio. The THC levels, which can top 20%, make this a particularly potent choice for those seeking stress reduction and mood boost. The high is predominantly relaxed, both in body and mind, but the sativa component adds a strong euphoria and feelings of happiness. This strain is often used to treat anxiety, chronic pain, and insomnia, while it's also helpful in treating depression, ADHD, PTSD, migraines, and PMS. Negative effects most commonly include dry mouth and dry eyes, with a limited possibility of dizziness. An inbred descendant of the OG Kush strain, Tahoe OG has an earthy, lemony taste, with a pungent plant smell.
