A staple of Dutch cannabis culture, Sensi Star is a legendary strain first developed in Amsterdam by Paradise Seeds in the mid 90s. Though its exact lineage remains a mystery (Paradise Seeds keeps it close to heart), Sensi Star’s original creators have said that it’s an Afghani indica with a trace of sativa. World renowned for its full-body, heavyweight punch, this powerful indica leapt to the front of cannabis consciousness in 1999 when it took the High Life and High Times cups in the same year. There was no stopping Sensi Star after that: it once again won the High Times Cannabis cup in 2000, then High Times Plant of the Year in 2003, the Highlife Cannabis Cup (Bio) in 2004, and Highlife Cannabis Cup (Hydro) again in 2010. Call that a five-star bud.
Sensi Star is named for both its appearance and effects. With constellation-like, sparkling trichomes set on galactic purple leaves, and delivering a dreamy couchlock for any tolerance level, Sensi Star has sent people’s minds to space for decades. As one of our favourite strains, Sensi Star has earned its place in our nighttime routine. It’s a dreamy high that we can’t get enough of: even daily smokers of Sensi Star trust it to keep on hitting hard, night after night.
7ACRES’s offering of Sensi Star is a perfect rendition of an old friend. Their high quality, perfectly cultivated buds introduce us to a complex aroma of lemon, sprinkles of pepper, and a dash of fuel. We remain impressed with the quality of 7ACRES’s lineup: between their Sensi Star, Jack Haze, and their Jean Guy, we’ve yet to try a strain that doesn’t hit like it should.
