The Rockstar strain probably won’t leave you with an intense urge to get your groove on, but it definitely does have the power to make you feel like a million bucks. This indica-dominant hybrid of the Rock Bud and Sensi Star strains is pretty mellow in the THC department, so even if you’re a new(ish) toker, you can comfortably indulge. Just a small bowl (or a few hits off a vape pen or blunt) will leave you feeling blissful, pain-free, and primed to enjoy an elevated evening winddown.
Rockstar tastes like sweat, leather, and booze. KIDDING. It actually tastes like:
Rockstar Strain Information
Rockstar is 70% indica and 30% sativa, with a fairly moderate THC content of about 16%, a CBD content of roughly 0.5%, and a CBG content of 1%. This weed strain took home second place at the 2012 High Times Cannabis Cup in the hybrid category and continues to dazzle cannabis lovers with its tension-easing, mood-lifting, appetite-stimulating effects. Medical tokers often use Rockstar to help alleviate chronic pain, nausea, headaches, GI issues, stress, and depression. This strain may also be effective for regulating mood in individuals with bipolar disorder.
Pairs With Music
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts — “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll”: Well, if this doesn’t make sense with a strain called Rockstar, what does?
Led Zeppelin — “Kashmir”: After a few tokes of Rockstar, play this uber-recognizable rock track and enjoy how it instantly weaves itself through your brain folds.
Queen — “Bohemian Rhapsody”: If you know the lyrics, don’t hesitate to rock out and sing along. And if you don’t, it’s time you learn.
Pairs With Food
Peanut butter, banana, & bacon sandwich: It was a favorite of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll (aka Elvis Presley), so it’s gotta be good enough for the lay toker, too.
Your favorite burger and fries: Rock ‘n’ roll originated in the U.S., and so did this delectable dish. Naturally, the two make a perfect pair.
BBQ: BBQ has long been a staple of American culture, as has rock ‘n’ roll. So whatever grilled foods you crave, eat those while you burn down.
Pairs With Spirits
Jack and Coke: Jack Daniels has long been connected to music, so it’s pretty darn appropriate when you’re toking a strain called Rockstar. Fun fact: “Lemmy” is the new “official” name for the Jack-Coke combo.
Whisky on the rocks: Whisky has been the preferred adult beverage of many, many rockstars, and it just so happens to pair quite nicely with the Rockstar strain’s flavor profile.
Hot toddy: If you’re using Rockstar to relax and wind down your evening, imbibe this super-soothing sipper to finish the job.
If you’re looking for a comforting nighttime strain that’ll lift your spirits, wipe out pain, obliterate stress, and soothe you to sleep, Rockstar might just rock your socks off. Other indica-dominant strains with comparably soothing effects include Master Kush, Blueberry Kush, and Platinum OG (all of these are pretty high in THC, so if you’re new, take it slow and assess as you go!).
