Power Plant is a sativa marijuana strain variety made from African Sativa. This strain produces a clear-headed, buzzy high that will make you feel happy and creative. Power Plant has an aroma that is woody, earthy and pungent. The taste is sharp and peppery. Growers say this strain has a fast growing time and will grow well in just about any environment. Due to its high potency, Power Plant should only be used by consumers with a high THC tolerance.
The Power Plant strain just so happens to be one powerhouse of a bud. It has relatively high levels of both THC and CBD, especially for a plant that wasn’t bred specifically as a high CBD strain. As a result, it is used both recreationally and medicinally – so it’s quite the multitasker. It also has a nice herby and peppery flavor as well, leaving a spicy aftertaste on the palate.
About Power Plant
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.

THC: 15%, CBD: 2%
This relatively upbeat strain is an inbred descendant of native South African sativas, though it also has some indica genes (65:35 sativa/indica ratio). THC levels vary, as they do with any strain, but available data suggests they’re not especially high, at least not on average. CBD levels are sometimes high, especially for a strain that appeals to recreational uses. Even so, it varies and isn’t generally high enough to suggest Power Plant as a treatment for seizures or other conditions that can be treated with CBD. Instead, it’s good for anxiety and depression, fatigue, ADHD, inflammation, migraine headaches, and lack of appetite. Use this strain for early afternoons or, if you wake and bake, mornings, as it provides a clear-headed boost of energy, with a creative spark and happy euphoria. Power Plant has a sweet taste with earthy, woody flavors. The aroma is similarly sweet, earthy, and woody. The bud is light green with light brown flecks and a silvery dusting of trichomes.

This isn’t the world’s most popular strain, but it’s found in a surprising number of legal markets, both in the American West and in Europe.
Power Plant is one of these strains, that became an instant success, once it hit the ganja market. Dutch Passion were the original Power Plant breeders; they searched through the vast lands of South Africa to discover the dankest sativa genetics.

With its earthy, spicy, pungent aromas and high THC level, Power Plant has cemented its name in the Hall of Fame.
