Strain Name: Romulan Cannabis Strain
Dominant Strain: Indica-dominant at 75% Indica / 25% Sativa.
Brief History: Romulan has a very interesting history. Back in 1996, Federation Seeds had in their possession a completed strain whose exact lineage and genetic makeup were unknown. Trying to rescue the strain and in an attempt to grow more, they took clones of the strain and crossed them with the award-winning, Indica-dominant White Rhino. Their offspring were then backcrossed several times until only a small amount of White Rhino’s genes remained, about 3% as the story goes. Today’s strain is what we know now as Romulan.
How Romulan got its name is another interesting story to tell. It began as a joke when users would joke around saying that the strain’s potency could “dent your head in” and cause ridges to form, much like those found in Star Trek’s warrior race, Romulan. The name stuck and so the strain was aptly named Romulan.
Romulan’s mind-bending, head-warping, full-body effects have been lauded in several cannabis magazines including Cannabis Culture as well as High Times.
