Romulan – Crash Labs Shatter – INDICA 1g
Romulan, naturally, gets its name from the hostile alien race in Star Trek. It’s a fitting history, as outer space is the perfect backdrop for this indica strain out of British Columbia. Topping out at 20-24% THC, Romulan is quite potent. It’s almost pure indica with a small amount of the sativa-dominant White Rhino hybrid, but its full origins are a mystery. Romulan has a sweet earthy smell and taste, with hints of pine and citrus. It produces a deeply relaxed body high with a dreamy, floating sensation. Like all indicas, Romulan can be effective at treating anxiety, though it’s best for pain. It’s also used to treat depression and lack of appetite. Couch-lock is common when smoking Romulan, so it’s best saved for late nights or rainy days at home. This strain is popular in legal markets in the American West, less so in other regions. Though not exactly a top-shelf strain, Romulan rates well among users, and it’s a favorite of many medical marijuana patients. It can be overpowering if used in high concentrations, with possible dizziness, paranoia, and headaches.
Shatter, with its flawless amber glass transparency, has a reputation for being the purest and cleanest type of extract. But translucence isn’t necessarily the tell-tale sign of quality. The consistency and texture of oil come down to different factors entirely.
The reason shatter comes out perfectly clear has to do with the molecules. Which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance. Heat, moisture, and high terpene contents can also affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap”). Cannabis Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap.”
