About this Power Plant Strain
Power Plant Strain is a sativa-leaning strain that emits a pungent and earthy scent with traces of sandalwood and spice. Its cured nuggets are shaped like pointed tear drops and its mossy green colors are speckled with small orange pistils.

This has given it a reputation of being fun for social gatherings or events. Others have consumed Power Plant and reported mood enhancement coupled with a rush of energy.
Not much is known about Power Plant’s lineage, but it’s believed to stem from an African sativa. In 2006, Power Plant won second place in the High Life Cup as well as in 2008 and 2009.
Descending from South African genetics, Power Plant is a mostly Sativa landrace hybrid that has been inbred to create a stable strain with a THC range between 15 and 20 percent. Dutch Passion began developing the genetics for this strain in the early nineties and then released it in 1997. Causing users to feel uplifted, energetic and social, the strain won it’s first award, for second place in the 2006 HighLife Cup. Since then Power Plant has won several more awards, which include two first place prizes in the HighLife Cups of 2008 and 2009. While it carries the normal downsides, Power Plant can be a very smooth smoke when properly dried. Tasting of sandalwood and spice, a handful of users may find this strain very trippy.
Power Plant is useful to patients seeking relief from depression, migraines, fatigue and more, providing relief after flowering for about seven to nine weeks. An extremely uniform plant, this strain is great for creating clones. Though Dutch Passion recommends that growers keep this strain indoors or in a greenhouse, there have been some reports of success from outdoor grow set ups. Power Plant is ready for harvest outdoors in October in subtropic and warm temperate climates or March for more arid desert climates. Reportedly yielding up to 500 grams per square meter, the buds of Power Plant are visually stunning.
