Get ready to blast off into a high-flying euphoric adventure with Nebula. This strain, also called “Starcloud” in some circles, is a hybrid with potent effects that rides the fence between indicas and sativas. Nebula’s appearance is also fairly striking, with white, fine trichomes coating every bud that seem to twinkle under powerful light.
This strain originally emerged sometime around 1996 after breeders Paradise Seeds crossed US Haze and Master Widow. The end result is a potent hybrid that’s just as at home during wake-and-bakes as it is an afternoon toke. However, smokers should be careful not to spark up Nebula too late in the day, lest this strain’s indica traits end up knocking them out.
- High THC concentration
- Hybrid genetics
- Both indica and sativa traits
Uses and Effects
Boasting balanced hybrid genetics, Nebula is perfect for smokers seeking the potent effects of a sativa tempered by the relaxed vibes of an indica. Smokers report that Nebula leaves them feeling happy, uplifted, and euphoric after just a few tokes.
It leans heavily into its sativa genetics, and also provides an energetic and social boost. It also may inspire creativity among artists and musicians. In addition, cannabis like Nebula may be effective in combatting several health issues. For example, some data suggests that Nebula may be able to alleviate:
- Stress and anxiety
- Chronic pain and inflammation
- Low appetite
Newer smokers should be wary around this strain. Like many sativa-dominant strains, it may actually increase paranoia and anxiety in smokers who are unfamiliar with it. As a result, it’s a good idea to start with a low dose of Nebula to see how it will affect your body.
Aroma and Appearance
Nebula’s sweet, mouthwatering aroma invokes images of sweet honey and other juicy, tasty treats. Its flavour emphasizes its sweetness, along with the typical scent that you’d expect from a Haze descendant.
