For those looking to scratch everything off their to-do list during the day, Hempstar wires users up with a caffeine-like high that provides small bursts of energy. Like an alarm clock set to ring at 420, this strain rouses users awake with a gentle yet motivating nudge.
Originally bred by Dutch Passion Seeds, this almost pure sativa hybrid was built by using Skunk, Oasis and Haze as its foundation. On its own, users are already pumped up just by Skunk and Haze’s fast-acting dynamic qualities.
Oasis, as the name suggests, provides long-lasting relief and evens out the initial high-energy with a leisurely physical stone. But to achieve the best, one should never settle; that’s why Dutch Seeds later improved it by adding Northern Lights as its pièce de résistance.
As a result, it balances a soothing physical buzz with a soaring mental high, allowing users to whirl through their tasks with a contented smile. Fittingly enough, this strain is also called Brainstorm.
As the mind flexes with an improved sense of focus and clarity, users are ultimately treated to a surefire way of improving life.

Odor and Flavors
Sugar, spice and a little bit of pungency complete this morning treat. Seasoned with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, herbs and pepper, Hempstar’s oriental odor ends with a hot and spicy kick towards the end of each hit.
Upon inhaling, a creamy smoke greets the tongue with a mild sweetness reminiscent of vanilla. A bitter and citrusy aftertaste lingers after exhaling, and this sudden burst of lemon flavor is as invigorating as the high it delivers. Indeed, this strain promises an all-around experience that will satisfy all the senses – including the taste buds.
Users who are in need to feel top of the morning will enjoy this strain as it effectively spikes up users’ mental energy as well as kindly pacify the body. Such a combination allows free-flowing thoughts to take action with ease. Additionally, it prompts users to engage in a focused and creative zeal with a no holds-barred approach.
Like a true Sativa, Hempstar acts like a wingman and supports users in accomplishing anything they set their mind on. As such, this is popular amongst artists or musicians as it fans the flames of their passion and brings them closer to finishing off a list of projects.
Indeed, users only need to grind and toke this strain rather than their standard coffee beans, making it a better wakeful alternative in anyone’s morning routine.
Long-lasting, powerful and boasting of a THC volume of up to 25%, this will catapult users ahead on their day. This goes without saying that this may be too much for novice users to handle.
As mentioned, Hempstar is jam-packed with quite an impressive potency. Due to this, those with an exceptionally low tolerance to such strong effects may find themselves vulnerable to dizziness, headaches and even paranoia. In order to avoid feeling overwhelmed, it’s important to start with a low dosage first during a smoke out.
On milder cases, most will also experience cottonmouth and dry, itchy eyes, although this is a known adversity in almost every cannabis available in the world. By keeping hydrated at all times, users will be able to easily quench this slight discomfort.
Medical Use and Benefits
For most people, they wake up to a heavy feeling of dread at the thought of the long day ahead. It’s a sneaking feeling that can dampen the spirit before they’re even able to get out of bed.
As such, despite having a low CBD concentration, Hemsptar is a favorite motivator of many medical patients as it makes up for it through its whopping THC value.
The strain’s uplifting qualities psyche users up, and its boost of energy gets users a head start on the game. Those who are looking to bring back the spark in their lives need only to light up this up and toke, allowing even those with depression or anxiety a chance at being comfortably productive.
Additionally, it also has some pain-relieving qualities that ease inflammations, back pains, migraines and even joint aches. Without any stress or physical grievances to hold them back, users are able to achieve a better quality of life from dusk till dawn.
This plant is something even novice growers can dabble with as not only is it resistant to common molds and mildews, but it has a low-maintenance personality to boot. That is to say, that doesn’t mean that the plant doesn’t have any demands that need to be met.
As it grows to a height of up to 200 cm, this suggests a necessity for periodic pruning. This is to make sure that the lower nodes absorb equal light, as well as a guarantee on it shifting to a bushier plant. This optimizes the yield as well as maximizes the space, especially in constricted areas.
Perhaps the only thing it needs is constant sunshine plus a regular dose of nutrients, making it easy enough to handle, especially for its ability to produce high yields.
Furthermore, growing it indoors should have a flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks with a yield of 550 grams per square meter. Meanwhile, outdoor cultivation should be ready by the middle of October with an average yield of 680 grams per plant.
