Growing up in the 80’s, I was enraptured with all things space, the logical boyhood graduation from dinosaurs. While most of my fellow boy scouts were starting fires and paddling canoes, I was earning my Astronomy merit badge and dreaming of lifeforms from among the stars. And although I never discovered any celestial civilizations all those years ago, I still get to hang out with galactic royalty.
In reality, Space Queen is a cross between Romulan, a physically calming indica, and Cinderella 99, an energetic daytime hybrid. Bringing these two strains together creates a dynamic hybrid capable of helping you to survive the most stressful of days.
The buds were super fluffy and dotted by long, citrus orange hairs. Because of their loose, gossamer structure and lack of any real stickiness, these nuggets were a joy to handle, and I placed the grinder aside for this eighth, choosing to break up the buds by hand. Cinderella 99 dominates the scent profile for this strain. There was a honey sweet smell, almost acrid like Queen Bee, and a fresh pineapple topical quality. Romulan’s earthy pine was completely overpowered here.
Space Queen has a slight indica lean. But with its stoney, dreamlike high and giggly personality, you certainly wouldn’t know it. It was good for watching tv or otherwise unwinding, without giving in to couch lock. I found myself treating this strain like a cup of coffee after dinner to carry me along until bedtime. There was plenty of creative thought, but Space Queen made it hard to concentrate–creativity better suited for conversation outside on the patio than preparing a new project at work. There was minor pain relief, but most of the physical relief came in a dense comfort, like being draped in a thick, heavy blanket.
