Sensi Star Strain Review
You’d think that the proud creators of Sensi Star would want to shout to the world about how they came up with their masterpiece. But no – they instead decided to keep us all in the dark and have managed for over 20 years now to completely hide its true origins and makeup. We know it’s Dutch and is Indica dominant, but that’s it!
Still, whatever it was they decided to put together, the result was astonishing in every way. Three times to date, Sensi Star has romped home with prestigious titles at the High Times Cannabis Cup. And it’s earned a massive following among discerning smokers on a global basis – one taste and you’ll know exactly why.
The aroma is one of citrus notes with a hint of mint, extremely pungent and with a dense, powerful smoke. The hit is also rather on the intense side – Sensi Star being a prime example of a weed where ‘one toke over the line’ really does ring true. Keep it calm and you’ll enjoy a heady, sensory stimulating cerebral high. Hit it hard and you’ll largely find yourself unable to move from whatever TV show you have on at the time.
Growing Sensi Star
If you’re thinking of growing Sensi Star at home, it’s certainly a rewarding and not too challenging plant to get to grips with. Large, fan-shaped leaves and plants of around 90cm in height can be expected, along with characteristically dense and ultra-sticky buds. The ideal conditions outdoors can result in plants that tower well over 2 metres in height, but you’ll need to get it dead right with your timings and the weather conditions. On average, THC concentrations come in at around the 15% mark.
It’s a generous strain to grow too – yields in the region of about 400g to 450g for every square metre can be expected, after a flowering time of about seven weeks. Sensi Star shows strong resistance to cooler temperatures, making it a great choice for growing outdoors in regions further north. But at the same time, it does enjoy plenty of sunshine where available.
On the whole, Sensi Star ticks all the right boxes. An excellent high, incredible flavour and easy to grow at home. It’s just a shame we still have no idea as to the little bugger’s origins!
