aka Starcloud Strain
The Nebula marijuana strain was bred by Paradise Seeds in 1996. Its name means “Starcloud” and it has been known to “twinkle” with THC coating, with a head and body buzz described as intense and almost psychedelic. The buds have been known to smell and taste like honey, and flowering time is a minimum of 9 weeks. Nebula has won many awards, including 3rd place in the sativa category at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1999 and 2nd place in 2005. It also took 3rd place at the Highlife Cup in 2004 in the Hydro category, and 1st place at the Copa La Bella Flor Spain in 2005.
When we released Nebula it was an instant hit in the UK, where indoor growers saw the potential of a quick growing plant. Swiftly it became the smoke of choice for many veterans of the scene who were looking for a sativa with decent yields and an old school high.
That’s not to say the Nebula won’t light up the skies for the beginner grower too. Quick to grow, some cultivators prefer to crop their ample harvests early. We have seen the results and pretty impressive they are too, but we recommend letting it flower until its ready in order to feel the full cosmic effect.
Nebula is made for indoor gardening (60 – 65 days flower time), and works particularly well when it is used under lights in a constellation of Sea Of Green. Because of the sativa genes this is one star traveler that likes to shoot for the sun, artificial or not, so may need some holding back on the throttle. Well trained however, it will shower your corner of the planet with buds that are as big as moon rocks.
You can expect phenomenal yields from this strain, reaching 500g/m² in indoor setups. It takes Nebula 60–65 days to fully mature during flowering. The cannabis strain works particularly well in SOG grows, as without she shoots for the stars.

Nebula, sometimes called Starcloud, is an award winning hybrid strain known for its strong effects, delivered with a sweet honey flavor. Paradise Seeds first designed Nebula in 1996, and it is reportedly a cross between a US Haze and Master Widow.
This strain is capable of affecting both body and mind. The most consistently reported effects are an intensely energizing psychedelic state and a state of euphoric happiness.
Some users feel creative and focused, while others find Nebula meditative and thought-provoking. Its milder Indica effects may stimulate appetite, calm the body, and cause inexperienced users to feel tired or lazy. While the positive effects of this strain can be stellar, negative effects are still present and may include cotton mouth, dry eyes, dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety.
For most, this strain can be used any time of day though because of its psychedelic and euphoric effects, it is more appropriate for times when work need not be done. Nebula’s cerebral effects make it ideal for relieving stress, anxiety, and depression. It may be prescribed for mild to moderate aches and pains as well as nausea and eating disorders.
The strain grows well both indoors and out and does particularly well in a Sea of Green. Nebula requires at least nine weeks to finish flowering and can produce up to 500 grams when grown properly. To grow well outdoors, the strain needs a temperate climate.
Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 18%, CBD: 1%
Nebula is an indica type strain, which is green in color with a large number of orange hairs covering it. There are several patches of purple all over the buds and they are abundant in THC crystals. The Nebula has a strong smell which can emanate throughout the room and beyond, in no time. It is a potent strain with a slightly fruity taste and a good kick. The Nebula has a smoothing effect over the person and the high is relaxing which culminates into a knocked out smoker. The effect lasts for two to three hours. This strain is the best option for calming the nerves and having a good relaxation session. It is useful for people suffering from insomnia because it sends the smoker into a dream state. The sativa effects are the body and head buzz, which are described as intense and incredible. The smell and taste is reminiscent of honey. Nebula is a popular brand of cannabis in the big leagues. It has many accolades to its name including the 2005 Copa La Bella Flor Spain. Other honorable mentions are the 3rd place in High Times Cannabis Cup of 1999 and the runner-ups in 2005. It also clinched 3rd position in the 2004 Highlife Cup.
The seed bank reports Nebula has a Sativa-leaning lineage, which accounts for its height, especially when grown outdoors with ample sunlight during a 60-to-65 day flowering period. Still, Nebula’s a versatile strain, responding well when grown both indoors or outdoors. It thrives under Sea of Green (SOG) grow methods.
The award-winning cannabis strain Nebula produces cured buds that mimic the swirling and chaotic appearance of actual cosmic nebulas as they have winding, honey-colored pistils jetting in every direction spread throughout their calyxes. These small, intriguing buds also smell like honey and have sweet floral undertones amidst an earthen scent.
THC levels of Nebula tend to vary, but its high has been described by reviewers as psychedelic and spacey. Users enjoy how this hybrid strain is incredibly cerebral as it uplifted their mood, improved creativity, and sharpened their focus.
Outside it will also shoot for the sun, absorbing all the light it can (remember that Mediterranean heart?). It will thrive in southern regions, but this plant is bred to be versatile and will prosper quite happily in northern regions too, especially in south facing plots. If the conditions are right, gardeners can expect an intergalactic bud shower of epic proportions come harvest.
As you would expect, Nebula twinkles and shines. The name reflects the appearance, tight THC rich bud formations that glisten like Lucy’s Sky with Diamonds and come with a fruity taste. How do we describe the effect? A quick acting, up-and-ready-to-go buzz thanks to the sativa heritage, with a mellow indica trail, allowing for an all day flow that will let you get things done.
