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. Topping out at 20-24% THC, 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. This strain is popular in legal markets in the American West, less so in other regions. 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.

Grapefruit is a longtime marijuana classic, a heady blend of the hybrid Cinderella 99 and a sativa bred specifically for its grapefruit flavor. With a sativa/indica ratio of 70:30, this strain packs a decidedly cerebral punch, with a major mood boost and intense euphoria. THC levels have been charted at 20%, so this is a pretty powerful strain. CBD levels, meanwhile, are very low, ruling this out as an effective treatment for epilepsy. But it’s highly effective at relieving anxiety and depression, as well as pain, GI distress, and PMS. The sweet taste and smell of grapefruit are dominant, thought there are also hints of other citrus fruits. Adverse effects are usually quite limited, though dry mouth and red eyes are possible. Dizziness and paranoia are more rare. Grapefruit is common across the country, sold largely on the basis of its unique flavor and aroma. It’s most popular in Colorado and on the West Coast, though it can also be found in other legal markets and the black market. This strain is highly appealing to smokers looking for a strong head high, less so to patients seeking physical effects.
