A hybrid of Mazar and Blueberry strains, the Skywalker strain is a clean 50/50 split of Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa. It has a THC level of around 15% and contains almost no CBD. Though this sweet strain (cultivar) is perfectly balanced, it is considered indica-dominant because of its powerful mellowing effect. This makes Skywalker great for managing chronic pain and insomnia.
Skywalker was created in Amsterdam by the seed company Dutch Passion. The blend of the two indica-dominant hybrid parent strains resulted in the fruity-yet-spicy Skywalker strain. It has a strong blueberry and fruity aroma and flavor with fruity notes and hints of spice and sage.
There is a collection of marijuana strains with a Star Wars namesake, but Skywalker is not named after the heroic Luke Skywalker for the reasons you would think. The urban legend goes that one of the lead cultivators involved in creating the strain was named Luke, and it stuck from there.
The Skywalker strain is the predecessor to the well-known Skywalker Kush/Skywalker OG Kush/Skywalker OG strain. The two often get confused, but Skywalker OG is a potent indica strain — containing 85% indica and 26% THC — which blends the relaxing effects of Skywalker with the high THC content of OG Kush.
