Originally brought from California to Vancouver, B.C., Canada in the 1970's this strain was purchased by Federation in 1996, in an attempt to keep it from becoming extinct. The nickname "Romulan" comes from the joking comment that the high from this bud could "dent your head" leaving Romulan-like brow-ridges.
Romulan is known for its purple stems and its tendency to form multiple branches and budding sites, which makes it ill-recommended for "sea of green" type growing. When cultivated outdoors it will yield roughly half a pound of bud per fully-grown, bushy plant. Because it does have thick, dense buds which are susceptible to mold, it performs better in dry climates.
While growing, Romulan is known for deep jade leaves that exude a peppery scent, but the flavor is described as being more pine than pepper. The high from Romulan is intense, with couch-lock a distinct possibility, and the inability to concentrate almost a given. It has shown excellent results in alleviating chronic pain.
Looks like the Romulan has already hit these people. There is nothing Indica about Romulan. Its Red Columbian (Sativa) and Korean (Sativa) You are getting the Knock Down from the Columbian

This strain has been a joy to grow. it grew to 22" in four weeks but stretched to 36" by the fourth week of bloom. No major problems with pests but I use very good preventive measures. Large fan leaves needed to be removed to allow light to penetrate the lower canopy. It's sensitive to nutrients, so be careful and use caution until familiar with the strain. Responds well to super cropping and topping off is a must to create a very wide profile. It will grow very tall so watch out or it could overgrow your setup. I grow six plants in a 4 X 4 tent at 36" tall under two 400 watt hps lamps.
One of the most extreme couchlock indicas one can smoke within two hits on a bong the sedative effects kick in and zzzzzz :) Like they say it dents your head and knock ya the #^%$ out! :)
one of the best medicinal strains ever,smashes your body and head,it is like the strongest indica you will encounter but warps the brain like no other.definitely hardcore sativa in there somewhere.put simply,IT IS EPIC WEED..
this is great
I had never heard of Romulan until I asked my bud tender for something to help me with the pain I was having in my neck,. I was rear ended in an accident and all my muscles in my neck were sore. I have been medicating with this Romulan for about 4 days now and each day the pain is less and less intense. While lifted from this extremely potent bud, the THC feeling relaxes me to the point where I feel no pain at all, until the effects wear away. The high lasted me a good 45 minutes from just one small bowl. The price of this top shelf bud is definitely cheaper than it is worth. Great for pain relief and muscle relaxation.
Romulan is a very good pain reliever for medical patients. It is a strong indica, that is often grown outdoors. Nugs are usually smooth, hairy, and dark and the effects are usually sedating and uplifting. Sleepiness is definitely an effect that will come along with Romulan. Not the best tasting strain but always very medicating.
This is priced right and super potent. It smells right, feels right; sticky and tightly nugged up. Use this at night, unless you have work to do. Tried some puffs of it from a bleezie and it put me out within twenty minutes, lol.
Romulan has some lovely spongy, dense and pungent buds that are super tastely and aromatic. I tried this strain for the first time just recently and was pleasantly surprised with the effects. It makes you feel really upbeat for a long time and I was giggling like a school girl. Same thing happened the next day when I smoked...put a huge smile on my face. Laughter is the BEST medicine (besides tastey buds)! Gotta try some of this for sure.
Romulan is a much different high then many other strains, often it carries a different scent then than the normal smell of marijuana. Very Pine-like scent as well as a hint of pepper as well as something else I have never quite been able to put my finger on. The taste is similar to that of the smell, once again almost that of pepper and pine. The high put a tingling sensation throughout my body and I was instantly relaxed. I felt stoned but I was able to concentrate on tv shows and other distractions, rather then getting lost in my thoughts. I would recommend Romulan for pain, as well as glaucoma, although I am not a doctor.
Ah Romulan. I was first told about this strain last year. I had heard words like "best I've ever had," so naturally I was curious. It had a sweet smell with a pungency that let you know it meant business. It was very crystally and sticky to the touch. It expanded nicely in the lungs. The high was nice and strong and lasted for quite a while. I don't think I'll call it "the best I've ever had," but I will grab some whenever I get the chance. Do yourself a favor and check it out if you can.
Romulan is one of the funnier strains I've come across. The smell is very peppery and holds little bits of sweetness in each smell. Its look isn't very appealing, with more of a dark orange hair and dark green look making it seem denser than this fluffy strain really is. The taste isn't as bitter as you'd expect, with a strong piney taste taking over with a peppery tinge that bites the mouth with its aftertaste. It's also a more uplifting, yet mellow body high and lasts a decently long time. I'd try it for its medication value if not just for the fun name.
Produced a VERY strong, medicating buzz, that had me really struggling to focus on tasks at hand. Relaxing, definitely good for insomnia. Puts you to sleep.
To say that this strain packs a punch does not do it justice. It is a hard-hitting, super-powerful, pure indica. The scent of this bud is noticeably spicey and has a definite skunk taste to it. Don't plan on doing anything productive after medicating with romulan. I haven't seen it at any dispensaries lately though and would love to find it again.
Super potent bud usually covered in crystals. I grinded up a gram of this, wow so much keif ended up in the keif catcher. Heavy body high great before bed.
[size=12]Romulan is great for night time. It is a full indica.[/size]
