It’s been four months since legalization, and I still am amazed at how many potent sativa strands are being cultivate in Illinois. Problem now is that dispensaries supplies have been thin recently. As soon as I noticed Outer Space by Cresco Labs,, which I had wanted to review for weeks, on the menu at NuMed in Urbana, I stopped by and picked up an eighth. Outer Space is sativa-dominant strain (though some list it as a 50-50%) that is a cross between Island Sweet Skunk and Trinity.
The buds were large and dense and the shape of Rorschach inkblots. The red and orange pistils were thick throughout and coated in translucent white trichomes. The first aroma when you open the container hit with creamy floral and herbal notes but then opened up with hints of berry and orange, especially when broken up. I recommend using a grinder. The flavor had hints of sweet berries mixed with fresh but spicy soil. The really sweet floral and soil aftertaste was probably the most distinctive flavor for me. If you’re a flavor and aroma snob, this strain probably is not for you. However, the characteristics of the high were made for Work Sativa reviews.
At 24.7% THC, Outer Space may be a little too potent for beginners, but for those like me who want the cerebral and energetic high that allows you to focus on the task at hand with a relaxing body buzz, Outer Space is definitely a strain to check out. The head high hit within a minute or less and had a chatty and happy vibe. But my favorite characteristic of this strain, especially late in the high, was the unexpectedly relaxing body buzz. With the strong but focused head high and body buzz, Outer Space definitely will be a strain I slip into my Work Sativa rotation.
