Power Flower is the original landrace from South Africa that took coffeeshops in Amsterdam by storm when it first arrived. Sold as Power Plant, this strain lives up to its name when it comes to raw potency and yields. A strong sativa-dominant with long-lasting cerebral effects.
Heritage & Genetics: It was the 1990’s when Power Plant landed in Amsterdam. Sourced from Durban, South Africa, this landrace sativa was inbred, and converted into a stable commercial variety named Power Plant, which was an instant hit in Dutch Coffeeshops. Royal Queen Seeds has acquired its version of this stable landrace and renamed it Power Flower.
Flavor & Aroma: The aroma of Power Flower is a musky lemon and lime, which when smoked becomes a sharp flavor that coats the palate with a mouthwash of citrus overtones.
Effect: Averaging at 19% THC, this fast-acting strain certainly is a Power Flower. With strong cerebral effects, it stimulates the mind with an energetic alertness. Those not used to a full-blooded sativa may find Power Flower’s thought-accelerating ways overwhelming. Others can find it the perfect companion for releasing creativity.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite, reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: This aromatic strain will grow with fast pace and serious vigour to produce large yields. When flowering, Power Flower stretches as tall as 1.5 metres, so training this 90% sativa is highly advised. Power Flower will only take around 8 weeks to flower and is very easy to grow once training is incorporated such as L.S.T and using a screen. This strain works very well in SCROG as this helps support its heavy yields. When grown outdoors, Power Flower performs best in warmer climates, preferring the weather of Southern Europe and parts of the Mediterranean.
