ORIGINS

Romulan by Helios is easily accessible. I was able to get 7 grams for $50 from SmartWeed. The Romulan strain comes packaged in eighths in glass containers. The containers are decorated with Greek inspired art and are labeled with all pertinent info about the flower like THC and CBD content as well as harvest date, batch number, and expiration date. The batch that I got tested at 17.89% THC and 0.05% CBD. These squat, pine-scented plants produce dense frosty buds that have found their following among connoisseurs in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest. The Romulan strain is bred with love by Helios and their motto is “powered by the sun.”

 

APPEARANCE AND AROMA

The Romulan indica strain has small to medium-sized spade-shaped nugs that are slightly dense and fluffy. The bud is more yellow-green than olive green with prominent brownish-orange pistils. It’s a super frosty bud with a generous layer of trichomes covering the surface. The use of a grinder is recommended with this strain to protect the integrity of the trichomes on this bud. The scent of the bud is hard to put my finger on. It’s a very complex smell with a few different undertones that change depending on the state of the bud. You’ve got to smell it yourself to truly appreciate the glory of the Romulan strain.
