The moderately potent strain is very good at creating longer than usual sativa-leaning effects that will help keep you energized, focused, and happy throughout the day. With a THC level of about 19%, Astroboy will hit you with a strong and uplifting euphoric wave of cerebral stimulation that will not only boost your energy and focus but also keep your creative juices flowing.
Although Astroboy isn’t the strongest sativa-dominant strain on earth, many people like it because of its array of unique flavors and aromas, as well as its ability to relieve conditions such as asthma, nausea, and PTSD. The hybrid is a cross of three very powerful strains, namely, Ortega, Cinderella 99, and Apollo 3, and is a product of a cannabis company known as TGA Subcool Seeds.
Although Astroboy is a sativa-dominant strain, it is capable of creating both sativa and indica effects in a uniquely balanced way. Like earlier mentioned, the effects created by Astroboy hit almost instantly, leaving you with an insane level of energy as well as a euphoric head rush that is perfect for creative thinking. Astroboy lovers describe this high as insanely uplifting and motivating.
The energy surge provided by Astroboy can be used in various ways. For instance, users can choose to channel it into creative thinking where they can brainstorm and come up with wonderful ideas and solutions.
Additionally, the energy can be channeled towards task completion and improving general productivity. As such, Astroboy is a great choice for daytime use.
Note that Astroboy’s potency can be a little bit too much for beginners as well as stoners with below-average tolerance levels. It is, therefore, better suited for experienced cannabis users.
Trust Astroboy to provide complete body relaxation with its dependable calming properties. The strain is said to calm every nerve in the body with its uniquely relaxing body buzz that travels to every corner of the body, from head to toe, leaving you relaxed and pain-free.
In addition to keeping the body at ease, Astroboy’s relaxing body buzz leaves you clear-headed and ready to take care of the day’s activities. Also, the strain’s extremely energizing rush makes it perfect for early morning gym sessions.
Aroma, Appearance, Flavor
Astroboy is one of the many cannabis hybrids with amazingly powerful fruity and nutty aromas. The hybrid is famous for its sweet blueberry smell with some hints of pine, citrus, grapefruit, and buttery smell.
Because of the plant’s pretty intense sour and earthy smell, many people are reluctant to grow Astroboy indoors. When you smoke Astroboy, you will love every second of the strain’s earthy and nutty aroma with distinct notes of blueberry and grapefruit.
The buds of this strain are dense and pack an impressive level of THC. The popcorn-shaped buds are greenish-yellow in color with subtle hints of red and orange. The buds also have rusty colored trichomes, which make a jar of Astroboy very appealing to the eye.
Astroboy offers a perfect balance of both physical and mental high, making it a great marijuana strain for people living with persistent medical conditions.
The hybrid is recommended to patients who suffer from stress, depression, anxiety, PTSD, among other mental health conditions.
Additionally, people who struggle with persistent migraines, headaches, chronic pain, asthma, loss of appetite, and muscle spasms can use Astroboy to ease their pain.
On top of that, Astroboy is ideal for people who struggle with gastrointestinal disorders, nausea, lack of appetite, ADD/ADHD, and fatigue.
All in all, the Astroboy cannabis strain comes with a perfect balance between the mood uplifting effects of Apollo 13 and the body relaxing buzz of Ortega and Cinderella 99 strains. As a result, the hybrid is uniquely perfect at creating both motivating and relaxing effects.
Astroboy is an easy grow thanks to its well-built indica structure and the ability to do well in a wide range of climatic conditions, including warm, cold, and semi-humid climates. The plant is highly resistant to pests, diseases, and mold and requires minimum supervision. All you need to do is to get a hold of seeds or mature Astroboy plants, also known as clippings, from an experienced grower, and you’re good to go.
When it comes to yields, Astroboy produces up to 16 ounces of consumable herb per square meter. The strain’s sativa genetic makeup highly influences yields.
Flowering takes between 7 to 9 weeks.
Possible Side Effects
Astroboy may cause dryness in both mouth and eyes. These are, however, mild effects that you can easily address by drinking a lot of water both before and after smoking Astroboy. On rare occasions, the strain may cause dizziness and itchy eyes.
Note that Astroboy may trigger anxiety, especially if overused. Some users also report becoming paranoid when they consume Astroboy. With that said, it is important to approach Astroboy with caution, particularly if you are new to the strain.
