Named after the classic Japanese manga character, Astroboy is a high-powered sativa that’s sure to give you energy and stimulation. Astroboy tends to have only small to medium-sized flowers that cling together in clustered, pebbly formations. Unsurprisingly given its sativa influence, Astroboy starts working shortly after users have savored its fruity smoke. At first, smokers may feel a sudden dizziness or a concerted pressure around the eyes and temples as blood rushes to the head. These tics may be accompanied by some flushing in the face or an increase in salivation as well. Once accustomed to these odd sensations, though, users are skyrocketed into an elevated plane of thinking in which ideas and concepts flow rapidly in free association from one to the next. Consumers may pause to analyze thoughts or conversational topics that might not otherwise strike them as interesting. This kind of cerebral mindset can be a good way to work through a pile of detail-oriented, analytical work. It may also spark creative energy for brainstorming and other open-ended projects.
Even as the high wears on, Astroboy tends not to burden its smokers with the weighty physical relaxation that comes with more indica-inflected strains. Instead, feel free to burn off this upbeat strain’s energy with light to moderate exercise. Astroboy’s mental chatter can also be a fun way to get through mundane chores like doing the dishes or finishing a load of laundry. This strain’s tendency to amplifying internal monologues can also make it a good social lubricant in party situations, provoking conversation and easy camaraderie. Because of its unabated energy level, Astroboy is recommended for daytime — or for experienced smokers, even morning — consumption. Learn more.
