The Romulan cannabis strain is a legend in British Columbia, Canada. It was originally bred and grown in the Victoria, B.C. area. Now it is a favorite for medical clubs all over North America.
There are qualities of this strain that are sedative and very helpful with patients that have pain from nerve and muscle damage, also useful in treating seizieres.
The Romulan by Next Generation Seed Company is made with the original "Romulan Joe" Romulan cutting. The male is an 8th generation backcross that was selected from a large seed run (500 seeds). At this time most of the Romulan crosses are with this strong male, the flavor and potency of the Romulan is very dominant.
The growing structure tends to follow that of the female parent making for more potent better producing hybrids. Romulan has beautiful hue colors in cooler temperatures.
On avereage the Romulan seedlings don't like to be over watered. Large PH fluctuations also disrupt growth of Romulan more than with others. Romulans have strong and wonderful aroma that gets drastically increased by slow drying and properly curing.
Many rumors and guesses on the genetics of Romulan have been made. Claims that the Romulan is a pure Indica Afgani are mistaken.
While there may be some genetics from Indica (Afgani) varieties, anyone who has tried the Romulan knows that the mind warping effect is that of plant with strong sativa traits.
According to "Romulan Joe" the original breeders started growing in there backyard and greenhouse in the 1950`s, after being introduced to cannabis in the Korean War and bringing home seeds to Victoria.
They struggled to grow and acclimatize these seeds selecting the faster flowering shorter plants from the tall lanky Korean strain.
When the late 1960's, early 1970's rolled around they began trying Columbian and Mexician seeds and hybredized varieties from these.
In the mid 1980`s when the Afgani strains sweept into North America they breifly tried hybredizing with these but eventually when back to selecting the traits they liked in there old genetics.
They worked mainly with Sativa genetics but always selected shorter squatter phenotypes which has made many people think that it is purely Indica strain.
It was a Columbian Red variety that is now the basis for the new seeds available. This has brought more circumstantial evidence that leads us to believe that the Romulan has a strong Columbian influence.
