Romulan, named after the alien Star Trek race, is a powerful indica revered for its potent therapeutic qualities. Though mostly indica, growers insist sativa genetics have crept in over time, lending it intense cerebral effects. These squat, pine-scented plants produce dense frosty buds that have found their following among connoisseurs in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest. A deep, sedating relaxation is what makes this a favorite strain for patients treating muscle spasms and nerve damage. Many hybridized variations of exist, but nearly all can promise a full body calm with heavily intoxicating properties.
This strain also wraps the user in a euphoric blanket of bliss while also stimulating the appetite. Snacks should be kept close as the “munchies effect” of Romulan is very strong even for experienced users. Everyone expects the cotton mouth and dry eyes but users might get caught off guard by the possible dizziness, paranoia and headaches when consuming Romulan in high doses or when baking it into edibles.
This strain is most often chosen by those dealing with insomnia and as such should not be used during the day. Users seeking pain relief often find that Romulan may relieve even some of the worst chronic aches and pains. Others choose it to alleviate the effects of stress and anxiety disorders, depression and various stomach problems.
Romulan’s exact origins and lineage are unknown, it was bought in 1996 by Federation Seeds as a completed strain. Federation Seeds was attempting to rescue the strain from dying out and received Romulan as clones. This made her entirely female and Federation crossed the strain with the award winning White Rhino. After this, the breeders then back-crossed the strain many times until only three percent of the White Rhino remained in the strain’s genetics. Romulan flowers for about 55 to 60 days and branches multiple times with many budding sites. This makes the strain less than ideal for techniques like the Sea of Green.
