The Skywalker Strain is another cannabis hybrid named after the popular Star Wars movie. This strain’s name came from Luke Skywalker, one of its characters. If you are a fan of Star Wars, this strain is something that you might want to try.
The Dutch Passion Seed created the Skywalker by crossbreeding the Blueberry and the Mazar. Although it is not as highly potent as the others, it will knock you out into sleep.
Upon taking-in this strain, you will feel incapable of fighting, unlike Luke Skywalker, because the force of sedation will conquer you.
Most people confuse it with the Skywalker OG, which is its child. Many users claim that the Skywalker is better than the OG variation.
Because of its sedative effects, most stoners use it intending to relax or to sleep.
What makes this strain less potent than the others is that it is a total hybrid. It is 50 percent Indica and 50 percent Sativa, which is also its one unique feature.
Looking at the Skywalker, you will see that it is beautiful. The buds are sage-green with tints of purple. The hairs are light orange, and its trichomes glisten under the light. The calyxes look airy.
Most users say that the taste and smell of this strain are like the Blueberry. Its flavor is fruity, pungent, sweet with an earthy undertone. Some say, however, it is spicy and distinct.
The aroma is sharp. Upon opening a jar of the Skywalker, the smell will fill the room fast. The scents are fruity, earthy, and sweet.
This strain is popular in the West Coast, particularly in Colorado and Arizona. If you are not from the West Coast, you can easily buy it from the legal and black markets.
Only a few stoners use the Skywalker Strain for its euphoric benefits. Most are after its sedation effects that creep-in quickly. Its high slightly resembles Indica.
Although the Skywalker will keep you mostly sedated, this strain can still provide you euphoria and mood-lifting effects, and will make you feel like you are a Jedi Master. However, these effects are initial.
As you consume your strain, you will feel its sedative effects.
This strain is an excellent choice as medication against stress, insomnia, and anxiety. It is also effective against depression.
Psychologically, it aids treatment against ADHD and bipolar disorder.
The Skywalker does not work on intense pain but the mild one. Therefore, it is what some female stoners use to alleviate their PMS.
Moreover, this strain induces appetite and alleviates nausea.
On the other hand, just like the different marijuana strains, it can cause dry eyes and dry mouth. The user can easily counter them through hydration and eye drops.
Other users say that they experienced paranoia, headache, and red eyes.
Others, especially the first-time users, complain about the couch-lock high effect for them.
The Skywalker Strain is 50 percent Sativa and 50 percent Indica, but its high resembles the Indica mostly. The typical THC in the market is below-average. However, the CBD can reach up to 1 percent, which makes it ideal for medical purposes.
Therefore, there is no wonder why stoners with insomnia choose this strain as a sleeping aid. Upon research, experts discovered that this strain contains 2.25 percent total terpenes. They used a Flame Ionization Detector and Gas Chromatography to determine the terpene profile of this strain.
The parents of the Skywalker Strain are the female Mazar-I-Sharif and the male Blueberry. Its child is the Skywalker OG.
The Skywalker Strain is easy to cultivate, which makes it an ideal starter for new growers. This strain is resistant to diseases, mildews, and molds.
It is advisable to grow it indoors using the Sea of Green (SOG) method and hydroponics.
It is possible to grow it outdoors, but the environment should be dry and warm. The temperature should be 80 degrees Fahrenheit at maximum. It also needs topping to ensure maximum yield.
As for the yield, this strain can give as much as 400 grams per square meter if raised in an ideal environment.
The grower should wait for eight to nine weeks for the strain to flower, which usually happens in mid-October. When the buds swell, it is highly advisable to pick them already. Using organic soil with vermicast is advisable if the grower wants to provide an ideal flowering environment.
Most stoners use this strain for medicinal purposes and relaxation. It is highly effective for putting them into sleep. Although its potency is not as powerful as several others, this characteristic makes it an ideal strain for new users because of its subtle effects.
Because new users often confuse the Skywalker with its child – the Skywalker OG, it is best to compare the two.
Both the Skywalker OG and the Skywalker can make the user feel relaxed. When it comes to euphoria and happiness, the Skywalker OG is more effective. On the other hand, the Skywalker Strain is more effective for making the stoner sleepy.
