Romulan Marijuana Strain


Federation Seed Company

Origins: Cali strain x White Rhino
Flowering: 56-60 days
Harvest: mid October

Federation purchased Romulan as a complete strain in 1996in an attempt to rescue it from extinction. In the 1970s, this variety was brought from Califronia to British Columbia by a Vietnam veteran, where it was grown on Vancouver Island. This variety was nicknamed Romulan after people joked that the high “could dent your head,” producing ridges like those of Star Trek’s warrior-like race with the same name.

Federation acquired Romulan in the form of clones, so she was entirely female. After crossing it with a Cannabis Cup prize winner, a White Rhino male, breeders ar Federation backcrossed 11 times to stabilize the variety at a 97 percent pure Romulan hybrid. Selections at each backcross favored the biggest, most robust plants over the fastest, although the finishing time remains around a very acceptable 8 weeks. Romulan seeds are now homogenous and have an improved robustness and yield as a result.

This purple-stemmed plant branches extensively and is less appropriate for a sea of green garden than a set-up which takes advantage of the multiple branching and budding sites. A completely indica plant, Romulan is short and bushy with dark green leaves and thick buds. While still a moderate producer, Romulan has not lost its head-denting capabilities, and claims the title of Federation’s most potent strain. Outdoors, this plant will yield about a half-pound of tight nuggets per fully grown plant. Drier climates are more favorable since the buds, being both thick and dense, have some susceptibility to mold.

Romulan is alien pot with potent effects. Couch lock is likely an concentration may be difficult to maintain. Medically, this weed has shown excellent results for chronic pain.In addition to its ongoing popularity in BC, Romulan has developed a devoted fan base in Texas.

    I just. Checked out the forum to see about posting photos from my fantastic 2014 garden, but I am not registered. I was able to post here without any registration, just moderator approval? I’ll see about registering. I’ll potentially have much more to post soon, as I’m establishing a garden that has 3 hoop houses (2 for light deprivation), and I’m firing up my 20-light indoor system, which has been sitting idle for many months!

    How do I post photos? I have lots!

    To follow up on my previous comment, and a final report on the Romulan Queen plant that I harvested in my outdoor garden in Northwest Californa. She was the most unique plant in my garden, as she started shooting violet/purple hairs right at the beginning of flowering, whereas all my other strains started with blond/white hairs. She topped out at about 11 1/2 feet tall and harvest nearly 700 grams of some sweet-tasting, fat, purple-haired buds the first week of September, which is early for my area! The flowers looked different than the bud I found its seed in, which leads me to believe that she presented different phenotypes in my garden, or the Romulan Queen bud that I found the seed in was crossed with something. I suppose the latter to be more likely.
    I used a Sweet Tooth male this year for my breeding program, as that strain does very well in my local, and managed to successfully lightly seed a few buds of the Romulan Queen x ?. I also crossed that Sweet Tooth male with females of itself, Mendo Purps, Covelo Sour Diesel, Grape Ape and Bubblegum. I’ll see what these F1’s do this year and continue selective breeding, with the goal of producing cannabis plants that are robust, problem-free, good yielders with rich cannabinoid and terpene profiles, and that harvest early, so as to get them out of the ground before the rains come!

    I bought an eighth of what was being called Romulan Queen at a local and reputable dispensary in Northern California this past winter and was fortunate enough to have found a seed. I germinated it with all my others in early April. Today is July 4 and it’s nearly 8 feet tall and is definitely female, as there are already preflower red and blond hairs. The bud was sold to me as being indica dominate, but seeing how tall it is already (About 6″ taller than my tallest Covelo Sour Diesel and tallest in my garden as of today), and it’s still gaining about 1 foot per week, I’d say this one is sativa dominate. I think she’ll be a good producer!

    This shit is the truth

    One thing is for certain, the original pure Romulan has much more sativa than a simple Kush/Afghani. Much more aroma as well, it’s pungent pine bud aroma is what makes it stand out as something unique. The original mother clones have been around for about 20 years. Another term that keeps popping up when describing Romulan is the old California blue indicas. I met with Romulan Joe a little while back and
    discussed Romulan’s heritage, I think I recall him mentioning some Mexican sativas but don’t quote me on it, I wasn’t taking notes, haha.
