Pink Starburst Weed Strain Yield

Pink Starburst is relatively easy to grow in a greenhouse environment. You won’t be seeing huge yields as it usually is less than 0.5 ounces per square foot. The plants are also a little over 2 feet tall.

Looking for strains that have higher yields is all about research. The truth is that seed companies give expected yields that are laughable at times. Some might state that you can expect 5 or 6 pounds per plant which simply is not true for a majority of strains. 

New growers need to look into strains that require very little besides regular light and water. Autoflowering strains can be great as there is no change in the light cycle required to start the flowering phase. These strains are bred with Russian Ruderalis which flowers in places with little to no light. 

Pink Starburst Pot Strain Flowering Time

The flowering phase of growing Pink Starburst lasts a very short 6 to 7 weeks. Expect bright green nugs with pink leaves. There are orange hairs along with a yellow covering of trichomes. 

The short flowering time is not always associated with small yields. This depends on the plant so take the time to figure out what you’ll want to do in terms of growing plans. A huge difference in the flowering times can impact when you grow and harvest a plant.

Pink Starburst Weed Seeds

Don’t opt to head to a seed bank for Pink Starburst as it is likely not worth it due to the small yield. It is actually illegal to order seeds online to have them delivered by mail. You don’t want to risk a fine or possible arrest by having these delivered. 

Head to your local dispensary for seeds as a seed bank getting you into legal trouble is not worth it. The nursery you head to can be a very useful resource if you know of one in the area. Fellow growers can be a great resource to get seeds with incredible genetics. 

Medical Conditions Pink Starburst Can Help

Too many politicians and pharmaceutical companies talk down on marijuana as medicine. They do this while investing millions in ventures to start when marijuana is finally federally legal. Pink Starburst can help with the following medical conditions: 

  • Depression
  • Eye Pressure
  • Fatigue
  • Migraines
  • Stress

The CBD content hovers around 1 percent so it is better for people with severe conditions like fibromyalgia to seek out strains with higher CBD content. Do not believe that just because a strain is low in CBD that it has no medical benefits. THC has medical benefits and is also the compound in marijuana that gets you high.
