Romulan is a legendary Indica-dominant strain that got its name when people began joking that this strain could “dent your head” and create ridges like the warrior race from Star Trek that shares the strain’s name. Having been featured in Skunk, High Times, and Cannabis Culture, Romulan is well known for its potent narcotic-like stone. Users often find themselves glued to one spot and may be overcome by a sleepy-laziness.
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.
my Romulan actually sadly tends to dwarf from clone sometime. also my phenotype shoots branches like crazy, so trimming and training the plant is a must. After taking the lower branches you need to trim other lower nodes in order to make your buds beef up. otherwise if you dont train her she will have very fluffy and leafy, very leafy buds. my Romulan pheno has a BERRY, earthy, sweet and musky smell. it really only gets real dank in the last week, but still its a very mild smelling. i think it might be because her crystals are very small, but plenty of them. Her buzz has a nice head high to her and very strong body high. i enjoy it very much
years ago, this bud was my first experience with legal, medical flower in san francisco. it didnt disappoint then and now almost two decades later we have some of the best concentrates and extracts from this strain and i love it! do the romulans share the vulcan hand signal? did not know that. anyways this hard hitting indica is just dandy by itself, but mix it with some pink kush and the results are Indica Heady Goodness. either way, cant go wrong with this. i do love my indicas so maybe im a bit biased. YMMV
This strain is great for those looking to relax. I use it in the evening using a vaporizer at 385°F. It’s the squinty-eyed, perma-smile, couch-lock kind of indica that makes you just feel really damn good. Don’t use this strain if you need to be productive. I already have an inclination to couch lock even with some sativa strains. Romulan puts be out of commission. Pros: very relaxing, helps with falling asleep Cons: not good for daytime use, flavour isn’t anything special
