Romulan

There are several sources of seeds and clones of Romulan. I'm grateful to a kind Canadian friend for these seeds, which are Romulan Joe's, from Federation. I have a number of strains going, and only germed four seeds, ending in two girls, same phenotype - a definite keeper for my mother garden.

This is a very photogenic plant, with a unique and wonderful scent of pines. It smells like a fresh Christmas tree. I plan to have a lot of it in flower this year around Christmas.

These were harvested at 10 weeks of flower, with just the beginnings of amber trichs showing up. I like an up, electric Sativa buzz, and was advised that it is best to harvest this early. If you wait, it becomes very narcotic. I may try that later on, but for my first harvest of this strain, I harvested when the trichs are 80% more or less, milky-colored, and a few amber trichs just starting to develop.

Well, a picture is worth a thousand words, so before I describe the smoke and buzz in more detail, here are a few glimpes along the way.
































mmmmm....

Now about the smoke and high. It smells so good that I couldn't wait for a proper cure and started smoking this after it was barely in the jar.... I believe the taste and buzz will deepen beautifully with curing, but it's all there to begin with. The smell carries over nicely into the taste of the smoke. Really puts me in the holiday spirit.

The buzz is a very clear, sativa type high, however, it has a lot more body component to it than I was expecting. It's comfortable but not physically debilitating. It's very strong too. I'm a chronic smoker (a couple oz a month more or less), but the Romulan comes on strong and fast. After one bowl, my body is tingling all over, and I have a sense of floating, centered in the head. There is a bit of single-minded focus with this, but not confusing. Time seems suspended, curvy, wavy, totally cool, fleeting and changing... My third eye is vibrating strong. ha, ha. This is a stimulus to thought, but not paranoid (however, I smoke a lot of sats - and almost nothing makes me paranoid), but its great for body aches and pains too. I'm loving it!

I am a sativa lover, and some of the favorite staples in my garden are Kali Mist, Island Sweet Skunk, New York City Diesel, Mother's Finest... Romulan is definitely in the same class as these fine strains. I especially love the taste and smell. But the high has the best of both worlds too, at least with my early harvest: it's a wonderful soaring, very potent sativa high centered in the head, but with quite a bit of body component to it, more so than KM, ISS, NYCD, or my pheno of MF.

There are a few other pics in my gallery, if you want to see more.

Hope this was informative. Stay tuned in a couple weeks for another report on Grape Krush, by DJ Short, another mouth-watering winner, for sure.

May all your garden's flourish!

wow great report just a bit confused i know you said you picked it early so that it was a clear high but from what i recall of romulan that it is a very strong narcotic buzz at least what i have smoked here in BC..
anyways thanks for your report
peace

Nice report man, thanks.

I'm also a little confuzzled...I thought it was mainly an indica strain with a body-numbing stone?

There are several versions of it. If I let mine go much longer, it would definitely have a strong narcotic punch, but I prefer to take it before that, as I do a lot of day-time smoking and don't want to be sleepy all day. Good luck with those seeds Witch King. I can't imagine you would be disappointed. This is definitely connosseur stash - I'm not sure of the parentage, though.

its funny that all these years later theres still no stable romulan. back in 96 when joe was first giving out seeds hed always warn us they were a little tricky. looks kindof unimpressive till you pull out the scope and roll one up.
nice pix and nice description of effect. the sat high is more apparent in the early harvest. take off the tops and let the smaller lower stuff get bigger. then sit down for the darker more mature trichs.. excellent hash

That plant looks pretty good man. Im growing some Romulan myself right now.



Its only about 3 weeks into flowering right now (and just a little bigger than that pic) I hope it turns out anywhere near what yours looked like.

Ps. I know what your talking about when you say "like a fresh christmas tree" I love just sticking my face in the plant and getting a good whiff of that mellow smell.
