The strain has a fruity, sweet aroma and notes of citrus, pine, and earthy flavors.
The Princess Leia strain was created as a tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise. The strain was launched in memory of Fisher in 2017 as a collaboration between Silver State Trading and The Source dispensaries in Nevada. The strain was designed to capture Fisher’s spirit and be uplifting, social, and enjoyable. The effects of Princess Leia are usually fast-acting and can last for several hours. The strain’s Sativa-dominant genetics make it ideal for daytime use, as it can boost creativity and energy, improve focus and concentration, and enhance sociability. Princess Leia is also known to inspire laughter and lift one’s mood. Medicinally, the strain is known to help reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and pain.
