Romulan Strain Information
Named after Star Trek’s Romulan race, Romulan will take you higher than the stars!
This indica-dominant hybrid got its name from quick-thinking tokers. Many claimed its intense effects could “dent your head” and give it ridges. Like the wrinkles of the Romulan! Say what you want, but stoners are nothing if not creative.
This strain is no stranger to the limelight, either. It has received awards and mentions from Skunk, High Times and Cannabis Culture.
That said, its exact genetics remains a mystery. What we do know is that Federation Seeds cloned the strain in 1996. Once cloned, they crossbred Romulan with another popular and well-known strain, White Rhino. They continued crossbreeding until only 3% of the original White Rhino genetics remained.
There is a theory that Romulan could be a distant relative of Afghani landrace strains. That said, nothing concrete beyond rumours has come from this concept.
What is for certain is that this strain is well-loved for its relaxing and euphoric effects. In other words, it will make you feel out of this world!
Appearance, Flavour, and Effects
This strain features dense nugs of dull to bright green leaves. You’ll also notice captivating copper-coloured pistils interspersed throughout the buds. In short, this strain looks as good as it hits! A fine dusting of trichomes makes the Romulan leaves look like frosty sugar. There’s no denying that it stands out from the rest!
Much like its namesake, the fragrance of Romulan is unpredictable. Sometimes it’s sweet like cherry candy. Other times, it emits a grape-like scent. More often than not, Romulan’s primary fragrance is a pungent and earthy pine. This unique combination of smells makes Romulan a refreshing and invigorating smoke!
As for the flavour, you’re in for a treat! This strain has a rich and sweet earthy taste. It contains woody and spicy overtones. Notes of citrus provide a refreshing and playful twist! Romulan also has a bit of sweet lemon shock to it. In other words, this strain is sure to intrigue your tastebuds! A few puffs of Romulan, and you will feel like you’re walking through a tropical forest of pine trees.
A word to the wise: if you’re planning on using this strain, make sure to have a stash of snacks and blankets nearby. Romulan provides intense appetite stimulation, even for the most experienced users. Put another way, prepare for the most intense case of the munchies you’ve ever had! Blankets and a place to lie down will also be ideal once the sedative and couch-lock effects activate.
In this way, Romulan does not mess around when it comes to effects. If you think you’re going to be productive, think again. This strain’s powerful indica qualities will have you glued to your couch in no time. Not even Captain Kirk himself will be able to save you from the cushy Romulan clutches!

With its heavy sedating effects, Romulan is best saved for nighttime use. Its heavy body high will relieve your body of all tension and worry.

If you keep toking, you’ll soon drift off into a peaceful, albeit sudden, slumber.
Novice tokers should watch out for cottonmouth and dry eyes when using Romulan. You also shouldn’t underestimate its potency. If you’re new to this hybrid, start with one joint or a bowl before taking it further!
