This is the first impression “BAM!” Here I am! I am a Rockstar!
This strain hits HARD and FAST. It’s an Indica with energy like a Rockstar. It has a heady head high, a lightness of mind and head, dominating the introduction. There’s also good uplift, a sense of well being and an an underlying euphoria. A really good rendering of a strain is when you can feel all the expressions (energy, uplift, euphoria) in prime time. This is a herb. It is not a plant.
We really like Rockstar as a strain because of the energy and uplift. This rendition from Grail hits all the Rockstar’s key expressions out of the ball park. Half an hour into the high, happiness emerges. You are now happy, uplifted, energetic and euphoric to create a very social person, which is perfect for partying. Cerebral focus is not the clearest but who cares at this point. We are now in party mode. You would be challenged to keep track of an object with accuracy because you are intoxicated. Time dilation is strong.
Test amount was 0.26 grams. THC content was 20.3%. If you are a reader and have tried this strain and you think “I didn’t feel that.” You are right. We have tried this under a number of conditions and we did not observe these aspects of the high experience. It was only when we dedicated three hours for the sole purpose of recording the high experience can we notice these effects. When we consume Rockstar under different conditions, the high experience is just a layer over whatever we are doing at that time. If we are shopping under the influence of Rockstar, we have list to remember and locations of products and we are not thinking about what is changing. The shopping experience under the influence of Rockstar would just translate to a fun time for us. But when we sit down and focus, this is what we experience and it’s amazing.
OK. This is a good time strain. The name is so appropriate, Rockstar.
Hitting the 45 minute mark, the indica effect starts to creep in. There is a body relaxation emerging in the background. There is energy to keep you from being grounded (heavy Indica can make you feel lethargic and sleepy) but the Indica is here.
The initial ending is a soft landing. After two hours, your body feels very relaxed. If you were to lay down, you may drift off into a pleasant sleep, or not. The Indica effects are there but it is not as strong as other Indicas. Past the 3 hour mark for the touchdown, your head hitting the ground becomes a real danger. The Indica heavy lethargic sleepy effect kicks in full force to take you down. It’s nothing a strong cup of coffee could not overcome, which is what we did. Overall experience was very satisfying.
