Description for Romulan

Experiencing the Romulan’s legendary taste and power should be on any serious cannabis connoisseur’s bucket list. Romulan was created decades ago by combining all-but extinct heirloom varieties from Thailand, Colombia, Mexico and Afghanistan. The result is a vigorous hybrid with a heavy, raw terpene profile. Romulan makes extremely strong extracts with a very high amount of noticeable terpenes. Users who have made rosins, or wax, from this plant report it as being the strongest extract that they have ever had.

History

Geographic Origin: Pacific Northwest

Story: This strain started out in the PNW as a Korean sourced Thai, grown by Veterans of the Korean War in the 1950’s. Over time, they developed a loose growers collective made up of close friends, who were also veterans and motorcycle club members. These growers stretched in location from Canada to Southern California. During a 30 year time span, they slowly introduced several strains in their attempts to make the plant easier to grow. Each time they bred their worked Thai line with a new strain, they worked those resulting plants for many years before introducing/breeding in a new strain. The first was Mexican sativa, and that result was eventually bred with a Colombian sometime in the late 1970’s. They eventually crossed it with an Afghani indica, but did not like the results so they back-crossed those results with the Colombian strain. The final result, they deemed complete, and over the years it became known as Romulan.

Growing Information

Flowering Time: 8-9 weeks

Yield: Heavy, Moderate

Growing Tips: This slightly sativa dominant polyhybrid grows like an indica. May require support due to branching and not the most suitable for SOG (does very well in SCROG grows, outdoor, and indoor)

Patient Expectations

Scent: Smells like an odd mixture of rotting old laundry crossed with a dead skunk and pine trees

Flavor: Complex layers of Skunk, Pine, Spicy, Pepper, Earthy, Hash and a slight Citrus Funk

Effects: A near perfect hybrid high, with an equal head and body buzz that comes with zero anxiety. More suitable for heavy smokers, or those looking for highly potent Cannabis. Can make you giggly, and send you into talkative introspective conversations. Typically does not make you sleepy, or induce couch lock unless taken in larger doses.

Suggested Medical use: Excellent for pain, especially nerve-based pain. Users report that it helps with anxiety, depression, insomnia, and fibromyalgia with exceptional results.

What do we know about the unknown/legendary Romulan?

Rumors and guesses as to the parentage of Romulan abound. Claims that the Romulan is a pure Indica (Afgani/Kush) are mistaken. While there may be some genetics from Indica (Afgani) varieties, anyone who has tried the Romulan knows that the mind warping effect is that of plant with strong sativa traits. `Romulan Joe` and I have had many conversations on the origin of this strain. According to him the original breeders started growing in there backyard and greenhouse in the 50`s, after being introduced to cannabis in the Korean war and bringing home seeds to Victoria. They struggled to grow and acclimatise these seeds selecting the faster flowering shorter plants from the tall lanky Korean strain. When the late sixties and early seventies rolled around, they began trying Columbian and Mexician seeds, hybridizing varieties from these. In the mid 80`s when the Afghani strains swept into North America they briefly tried hybridizing with these but eventually when back to selecting the traits they liked in there old genetics. They worked mainly with Sativa genetics but always selected shorter squatter phenotypes which has made many people think that it is purely Indica strain. But whatever its true genealogy is, I`m sure we can all agree on its great taste and high.
