Romulan, naturally, gets its name from the hostile alien race in Star Trek. It’s a fitting history, as outer space is the perfect backdrop for this indica strain out of British Columbia.
Romulan is quite potent. It’s almost pure indica with a small amount of the sativa-dominant White Rhino hybrid, but its full origins are a mystery. Romulan has a sweet earthy smell and taste, with hints of pine and citrus. It produces a deeply relaxed body high with a dreamy, floating sensation. Like all indicas, Romulan can be effective at treating anxiety, though it’s best for pain. It’s also used to treat depression and lack of appetite. Couch-lock is common when smoking Romulan, so it’s best saved for late nights or rainy days at home.
Though not exactly a top-shelf strain, Romulan rates well among users, and it’s a favorite of many medical marijuana patients. It can be overpowering if used in high concentrations, with possible dizziness, paranoia, and headaches.
