Dark helmet strain
Dark Helmet is an indica dominant hybrid strain (70% indica/30% sativa) created through crossing the classic Forum Cut Girl Scout Cookies X Jawa Pie strains. Named for the infamous Spaceballs character, Dark Helmet is, surprisingly, one of the most calming strains on the market. In fact, even with its heavy indica dominance, most of the effects of Dark Helmet concentrate on the mind, leaving you in a state of pure blissful euphoria for hours and hours on end. You’ll feel all negative or racing thoughts wash away, leaving you with a sense of deep peace and relaxation that permeates both mind and body without causing sedation. Thanks to these hard-hitting cerebral effects and its high 13-24% average THC level, Dark Helmet is often chosen to treat those suffering from conditions such as migraines or headaches, depression, nausea or appetite loss, mood swings, and chronic stress. This bud has a sweet an sour nutty lime flavor, almost like a key lime pie, with a punch of pungency upon exhale. The aroma is very earthy and pungent, with a rich herbal overtone that’s accented by sour citrus. Dark Helmet buds have rounded olive green nugs with thick amber hairs, chunky matching trichomes, and a thick gooey layer of sweet syrupy resin covering each and every leaf.
Type of High
Dark Helmet comes from a superior lineage that includes Jawa Pie and Forum Girl Scout Cookies. Jawa Pie is a pure indica cannabis strain that’s ideal for people who love kush.
It was created by Ocean Grown Seeds, and it has a sweet and stinky aroma like a skunk in a blueberry field. Some people report that they look to Jawa Pie when they have discomfort or stress. It’s responsible for the indica-dominant qualities of Dark Helmet.
Compared to Jawa Pie, Forum Girl Scout Cookies isn’t a pure indica, though it is a slightly indica-dominant hybrid. It’s a forum cut of the original Girl Scout Cookies strain, so you know more or less what to expect if you’ve ever had GSC.
Some people have said that the Girl Scout Cookies forum cut is slightly more balanced than the original Girl Scout Cookies, and it’s associated with more cerebral feelings. This helps add another level of depth to the Dark Helmet
The sour earthy smell of this strain would almost be too overpowering if it didn’t have some sweeter notes of citrus fruit and pine. Dark Helmet is named after the Spaceballs character, and it’s just about as sour as its namesake. Interestingly enough, these buds are also small in stature and are normally very dense.
There are dark orange hairs sprouting from the surface of the flower, and the flower is covered in a nice layer of crystals that gives it an appealing shine.
While the smell of Dark Helmet can be a bit jarring to the senses, most patients report that the experience is actually very mellow. Patients who regularly buy this indica-dominant hybrid strain report feeling a period of uplifted happiness before settling into a state of deep, sleepy relaxation.
For that reason, it’s normally considered to be best for nightly smoking, though it could also work as a daytime strain as long as you don’t have too much to do. Prepare to have a snack, drink a refreshing beverage, and settle in for a nap.
