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.
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 strain.
