Romulan is an indica-dominant cannabis strain with sedating, tranquilizing and narcotic-like effects. Reports suggest that Romulan could help manage chronic pain, insomnia, and appetite loss. Its candy, earthy, pine, and citrus flavors create a refreshing overall experience.
These days, Romulan contains 75% Cannabis indica and 25% Cannabis sativa genetics. However, it was initially believed to be a 100% pure indica strain. Romulan’s parent strains aren’t entirely known, but White Rhino (an indica strain) is one, and the other is likely to be a type of North American indica cannabis strain.
Next Generation Seeds initially produced Romulan, and it’s thought that a breeder called Romulan Joe was influential in creating this strain.
In terms of its appearance, Romulan produces dense and frosty buds. It has brightly colored brassy-orange pistils that can be found between the bright green sugar leaves, with frosty buds that are packed tightly together.
Romulan gets its name from the fictional Star Trek alien species with ridges on their forehead and pointed ears. People have joked that when using Romulan, you could “dent your head” because it is so strong.
The Romulan strain is well-known and mentioned in Skunk, High Times, and Cannabis Culture. It also won third place for Best Non-Solvent Hash in the 2017 High Times Medical Cannabis Cup.
