The Nebula strain, also called Starcloud, is a hybrid strain that is Sativa-dominant. This strain is said to be a cross breed of Master Widow and US Haze, but the exact composition of this Paradise Seeds creation is a secret. The Nebula strain is an award winner, and has nabbed 3rd place among Sativa strains at the 1999 High Times Cannabis Cup and 2nd place in the same category in 2005.
Buds of the Nebula strain can actually twinkle since they have such a rich coat of THC. They also have a sweet aroma and taste reminiscent of honey. Using Nebula provides an overall body and head buzz that is intense yet uplifting and can verge on the psychedelic. Many users think of Nebula as a “brain strain,” perfect for users with more cerebral needs.
Nebula is ideal for those looking for euphoric happiness, improved energy, and a creative boost which can border on the psychedelic. In terms of intellectual or creative impact, users report effects ranging from feeling contemplative and thoughtful to feeling more focused and creatively productive. Either way, this strain avoids the problem of losing your train of thought and focus.
Nebula does retain some more Indica-type traits, however, such as a calming of the physical body. This is a benefit to more experienced users but can be off-putting for novices (except those seeking out this effect). Certain less desirable effects like anxiety, cotton mouth, dizziness, dry eyes, and paranoia can also be experienced with this strain (as they can be in almost any strain with any real calming Indica benefits).
Overall, Nebula is usually a good daytime choice due to its Sativa dominance and energizing effects. It is typically used to relieve anxiety, depression, and stress, and to treat aches, eating disorders, nausea, and moderate pain. This strain works wonderfully fast, so you will feel its relieving effects quickly.
