This strain will rock you to your very core. Born from Rockbud and Sensi Star indica strains, Rockstar is a hard-hitting indica dominant strain that has a powerful yet manageable high. With notes of pine and a spicy earthiness, you get a sense of how powerful Rockstar is before your first puff.
There are two reasons why people use cannabis. One is for recreational purpose, another is for medical purpose Either way, the intention is simple and that is to feel good, both mentally and physically.
So, let us take a look at the star of all stars, the rock star of the cannabis world, here is RockStar. Okay, just so it is clear, this is not the same strain as RockStar OG, and don’t be confused by BC RockStar (otherwise known as RockStar Kush), which happens to have our own RockStar as a parent.
And what can RockStar do for you? It takes away those awful pains you feel from your body and helps you relax, feel uplifted, and if you have trouble sleeping or eating, this cannabis strain is your salvation.
The breeder of this strain is Bonguru Beans. To create the rock band for the ages, they used a strain from Soma A called Rockbud and crossed it with Paradise Seeds’ Sensi Star. As you can see, RockStar has a pedigree when it comes to its lineage. In fact, it has placed as high as second place in past editions of the Cannabis Cup, which is no small feat when you consider that there are hundreds of other competing strains.

RockStar starts by sending you on a cerebral high that sparks heightened focus, but only for a short period of time. As the physical high starts, you gradually feel uplifted. Forget the things that are stressing you out as the Indica-side takes over your body.
Pretty soon, you are probably going to find yourself stuck on the couch, feeling good about yourself, and pretty much everything else. You will want to have some food on the side, though as you would also soon feel hungry.
It would take every ounce of self-discipline not to eat too much, because what comes next is drowsiness and in no time at all, you’d find yourself in dreamland snoring, oops, rocking.
The top reason why medical cannabis users sought the RockStar is to sing away the chronic pains and aches. Because of the powerful body high that helps one relax, this strain has proven to be effective in reducing stress.
But you have to be careful, though, as using this strain might do the opposite. For more, be sure to read the section on adverse reactions.
A couple of other benefits also comes with the use of RockStar. One is in dealing with the lack of appetite. Smokers tend to feel hungry an hour or so after using this cannabis. Another benefit is for those who have trouble falling asleep such as having insomnia. As the physical high starts to wane, your body feel tired but not to the point of feeling like sedated. Nevertheless, you are likely to fall asleep.
