Powerful by name, powerful by nature: this potent and flavorsome strain from Nirvana is a wonderful mixture of strong landraces, that together give you the best of both sativa and indica worlds. South African Sativa x North American Fat Indica. Up to 20%THC.
Heritage & Genetics: Part South African Sativa, part North American Fat Indica, Power Plant from Nirvana combines the focused and creative head-high of the former, with the delectable and tingly body-buzz of the latter in its 70/30 indica/sativa mix. Its genetics hail from two other great Nirvana strains, Original Power Plant and White Widow; both tasty and strong characters.
Flavor & Aroma: Pure Power Plant is not meant to be too overpowering aroma wise in the grow, but the resulting bud itself is fairly pungent. You will get a strong smell of musk; earthy and herbal. On top of that, you may get orange citrus notes, vanilla or wood coming through. There is a distinctly piney aftertaste and a smooth finish to the flavor.
Effect: Used in light doses Pure Power Plant can be a secret weapon for powering through your day with energy and enthusiasm; thanks to its part sativa ancestry. However, as soon as you up the dose, you realize that this strain’s definitely an indica at heart. High doses slow you right down and can induce couch lock and snoozing. Useful if you can only grow one or two plants but still want variety within the effect.
Medical: Ongoing research has found that in higher doses THC may help with Glaucoma, by reducing pressure in the eye. THC and CBD have also been found to have pain-relieving qualities that are thought to amplify when the cannabinoids work together. Meanwhile, CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Considering this, this high THC, moderate CBD strain may be somewhat useful for relieving pain and inflammation often experienced with joint pain, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
Grow Characteristics: Starting out a little sativa-like, Pure Power Plant soon shows its true indica colors, growing short, fat and bushy. Fairly compact and fast to flower, in about eight to ten weeks. Pure Power Plant is good for beginner growers as it’s both hardy and vigorous, so can take a few knocks along the way as you experiment. For more experienced growers a SOG setup can work well, and under ideal conditions, should give you a high yield of light green, sticky bud with plenty of orange hair.
