untrimmed grow west flower


These buds are not trimmed which always offers some relief at the register. Personally I think Grow West’s untrimmed is superior to most trimmed flower available in Maryland (whether trimmed by machine or by hand)
If you do decide to trim or, in my opinion, waste the outer guard or sugar leaves  then you can quickly give it a haircut and you’ll immediately see that these buds are quite fetching. I say “waste” because the guard leaves of cannabis planes can contain the highest percentages of trichomes. This is why they are used in producing concentrates.

Light green leaves, long orange stigma/pistils/“hairs”, as well as a blanket of tiny crystalline trichomes coating the surface like a light early morning snowfall.

Intergalactic’s effect is subtle at first and seems to have a bit of a delayed onset.
I would say it definitely “creeps” and can be relegated to the “creeper” column.
After about 5-10 minutes or so,  Intergalactic begins to seep subtly into your conscious mind taking it farther out into its vastness. As this happens sparks of cerebral activity begin to elevate mood and an airy warmth fills the chest cavity while ocular pressure around the middle of the forehead reminds you that you are the universe is expanding.

Stressful worry morphs almost seamlessly into excited expectation. But, this sensation is unlike that of a hard hitting diesel and closer to a Purple Obeah.

Intergalactic’s tendrils spiral to reach deeper into the mind powered by substantial levels of Pinene, long forgotten memories can be recalled with ease and through a mostly snuggle wrapped in some positive sentiment rather than deep introspection.

This combination of memory recall and mood elevation has the potential to inspire and motivate the mind and offer a treasure trove for the brain to sift. 

As the high continues, the carousel of memories moving across the screen begins to slow to a more contemplative state of mind.

 Intergalactic’s ’s body high begins to take shape with some light ocular pressure and sort of tingling sensation in the arms along with a decent amount of airy warmth in the chest area.

The high culminates with a synergistic blend of cerebral and physical euphoria and as it tapers off, some increase in appetite and a feeling of drowsiness is to be somewhat expected when medicating with Intergalactic in higher dosages. Intergalactic will definitely send you into orbit and keep your mind occupied while you’re travelling.

Intergalactic’s physical effects can settle the nerves and relax the body much like a strain of the kush indica variety. Its body high does swing some weight but not enough for downright sedation. Intergalactic’s more physical effects’ largest function is grounding the progressively stimulating head high.

  • physically motivating +/++/+++
  • Light to medium ocular and cranial pressure +/++/+++
  • Mild appetite stimulation (relaxing of muscles in stomach/abdomen) ++/+++*

Space Wrangler’s Terpo-Chemical profile:

AlphaPinene: 0.23% | BetaCaryophyllene: 0.13% | BetaMyrcene: 0.49% | BetaPinene: 0.15% | Humulene: 0.03% | Limonene: 0.12% | THCA: 18.83%

TOP TERPENES: Myrcene, Pinene, Caryophylene

Intergalactic’s falls in the category of strains like Culta’s Poochie Love . The similarities are in their roughly shared terpene profiles which lead in Myrcene and Pinene. This provides a broad spectrum of potential effects fueled by the alerting and heart rate accelerating Pinene and calmed by Myrcene, which, incidentally is the only terpene found in cannabis so far that is also considered to be a cannabinoid which can amplify the overall potency of any strain. This gives strains like Poohie Love and Intergalactic a somewhat unstable or top heavy effect that for some can be a bit overwhelming.

Intergalactic’s flavor on exhale is much smoother than the Pooch. This can be a less than favored profile by those dealing with anxiety, But all in all, it tends to offer a unique blend of uplifting and inspiring focus with a grounding subordinate physical effect which can tranquil and comforting without being too sedative. 



Individuals suffering from Nausea, Stress, Depression, Anxiety, ADD/ADHD may find Intergalactic to effectively mitigate symptoms.

  • Nausea
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • ADD/ADHD (Especially individuals seeking a strain to stabilize mood as well as enhance focus)
  • Trauma therapy/ PTSD therapy
  • physical/ inflammatory pain relief
  • migraine relief for some with high levels of pinene and myrcene and just enough limonene to ward off nausea associated with the early and later stages of migraine headache development

Intergalactic buds from grow west

Intergalactic is a cannabis cultivar created by crossing The Cube X  Constantine. Its aroma presents an overt piney musk that conceals minor notes of lemon, herbs, and berries.
It has moderate THC levels rounding out in the mid to high teens as is the case with many structural Sativa dominant hybrids.
The delayed nature or “creeping” effect to Intergalactic’s cerebral stimulation soon makes its entrance which, once fully engaged, has the potential to elevate  mood, sharpen focus.
As Intergalactic’s cerebral effects work their way deep into the psyche and high levels of Pinene help evoke long range memory recall, mental strain and stress are pulled into the background until the temporarily vanish from view.

Just as it’s head high begins to arc Intergalactic’s ’s more mellow body high begins to seep deep into tired muscles and can render one immobilized and uplifted at the same time.
Individuals dealing with ptsd may want to steer clear of Intergalactic’s  intense rush of memory but those dealing with general anxiety and depression may take comfort in its effects, interpreting the pinene induced trip down memory lane as one of mild sentiment rather than dredging up painful memories. Also, this is a great flower to help induce appetite.


At first I wasn’t sure what Intergalactic had actually made me feel and then I start to realize how many memories were flooding my mind. I was able to see their connection to myself without it becoming an exercise in negative recursive thinking.

Meanwhile it seems it’s been business as usual at Grow West where the weed grows green fat…and fresh.

The cerebral uplift was worth the price of admission to Intergalactic’s midnight show, as I seemed to literally feel it re-wire my overworked and worried mind to a more copacetic shade of elevated and motivation.

This steady flow of cerebral stimulation, enhanced focus, and an all over non-sedating body euphoria is quite an effective pairing for your humble narrator. 
If you can handle high levels of pinene and you are seeking an uplifting cerebral flower that can elevate or balance low or erratic moods, uplift and motivate (making it a wonderful morning and daytime flower). That being said, at this THCa percentage it doesn’t take much to transport you to the outer limits of the stars.

I will definitely purchase Intergalactic again in the future. I really responded to its earthen skunky high energy buzz. It really helped me focus on the project at hand and gain some good perspective on things happening in my current sphere which, like all of us know, can be difficult to navigate at times. Micro doses of Intergalactic offered an distraction free uptick in focus and mood while larger doses further articulates the cerebral effects; grounding them in tranquility and calm delight rather than somnolence or sleep.
