Get to know this speedy south african sativa

Sativa varieties are prized for their huge sizes and bountiful yields, but this impressive productivity usually comes with a trade-off. Growers require the virtue of patience whilst waiting for these tree-like organisms to bloom. This, of course, makes sense. The bigger the yield, the more time it takes to develop and mature.

The cannabis world is a diverse place. There are always outlier cultivars that break the mould and offer something different. Power Flower is one of these genetic anomalies. This towering sativa produces substantial yields whilst boasting brevity. Let’s get to know her.

Power Plant and the Genetic History of Power Flower

Power Flower's origins can be traced back to wild cannabis landraces in South Africa. Known as "dagga" in Afrikaans, natural selection led many of those plants to become towering sativas. Some visiting Dutch cannabis growers noticed these back in the 1990s, and collected seeds from the most impressive plants before heading back home.

Once back, they began rigorous breeding and testing. After near-countless experiments, they produced Power Plant, which quickly took over Amsterdam coffeeshops. Then, some years later, RQS took Power Plant and did some experimentation of their own. By the end of it, they had a superior yet faithful homage to the original, and they crowned it Power Flower.

An electrifying high: the effects of power flower

As a sativa-dominant strain, you’d be right in thinking that the high is on the lively side. A few hits from these resinous flowers is all it takes to light up the mind. THC hitches a ride in the bloodstream and swiftly penetrates the blood-brain barrier. Once inside, a firework show of neurochemistry sets ablaze. The psychoactive molecule binds to CB1 receptors, catalysing a cascade of dopamine and serotonin. As the brain bathes in this soup of mood-enhancing neurotransmitters, users will detect a feeling of euphoria take hold.

As you can imagine, Power Flower is a motivating cultivar that inspires creativity. She’s a superb daytime smoke before heading to work or engaging in artistic projects. Smoking these buds in the morning with a side of espresso will set you up for a productive day. A THC content of 19% dictates a fast-acting high that lingers for hours.

Power Flower also offers therapeutic value. These mood-boosting effects serve as a shield against anxiety and effortlessly bat away stress and worry. Medium quantities of CBD also contribute towards these feel-good effects.

Aromas of the forest: the flavours and scents of power flower

Sticking your nose in a stash jar of Power Flower will transport your consciousness to the forest. Close your eyes and allow images of moss-laden ground, proud pines and waving canopies occupy the mind. The terpene profile generated by these flowers produces distinct scents of earthiness, citrus and conifers. These natural notes satisfy the inner hippy and leave you pining for walks in the woods.
