The Romulan is a legend in BC and the Pacific North-West. It was originally bred and grown in the Victoria, BC 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 quality of the buds are second to none and its our #1 recommended strain for medicinal users.
The Romulan by Next Generation Seed Company is made with the original `Romulan Joe` Romulan cutting. They have kept it alive since recieving it from Joe almost 10 years ago. 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 flavour and potency of the Romulan is very dominant in its crosses. However, the growing structure tends to follow that of the female parent making for more potent better producing hybrids. There are plans on producing more crosses with the original Romulan cutting very soon. Romulan has beautiful colors in cooler temperatures.
On avereage the Romulan seedlings don`t like to be overwatered. Large PH fluctuations also disrupt growth of Romulan more than with others. However the potency of this strain make it a keeper. Romulans already strong scent and wonderful aroma is drastically increased by slow drying and properly curing.
During the last large seed run, another special seedling stood out from the rest. It was faster flowering than all the others by a week and was about 30% bigger. We kept a copy of this special Romulan Seedling and it is now the mother of the `Romulan Max`. Its production level is the same as top producers like NL#5 and Hashplant. It may not be as strong as the original Romulan but at least its still stronger than most other strains around.
Rumors and guesses on the parentage of Romulan abound. Claims that the Romulan is a pure Indica (Afgani/Kush) are mistaken. While there may be some genetics from Indica (Afgani) varieties, anyone who has tryed the Romulan knows that the mind warping effect is that of plant with strong sativa traits. `Romulan Joe` and I have had many conversations on the origin of this strain. According to him the original breeders started growing in there backyard and greenhouse in the 50`s, after being introduced to cannabis in the Korean war and bringing home seeds to Victoria. They struggled to grow and acclimatise these seeds selecting the faster flowering shorter plants from the tall lanky Korean strain. When the late sixties, early seventies rolled around they began trying Columbian and Mexician seeds and hybredized varieties from these. In the mid 80`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. But whatever its true geniology is, I`m sure we can all agree on its great taste and high.
Over the last few years NGSC has grown several seed varieties from Columbia and has reported on one the was remarkably simular in flavour and affect as the romulan, but grows tall like a sativa. It was a Columbian Red variety that is now the basis for the new seeds A.D.D. from thier Gold Seal Collection, very heady strain. This has brought more circumstantial evidence that leads us to believe that the Romulan has a strong Columbian influence.
