Power Plant Strain Review – Everything You Need to Know & More!

The power plant was created by Dutch Passion Seed Company and was created from landrace sativa strains. A lot of these strains, including Power Plant, are now incredibly popular strains for parenting new strains.
Power Plant inherits its quick growing time and its very large buds from its landrace parents. These popcorn buds make it an incredibly popular strain, as well as its sativa-cerebral, clear-headed high.

Power Plant sativa

Originally created from the landrace strains of South Africa, Power Plant inherits a lot of the best qualities from landraces. However, it’s also special because it has a much higher THC percentage than you might expect from a sativa landrace cross. This gives a very welcome, sativa-dominant buzzing effect that tokers of all experience levels can enjoy.

Dutch Passion Power Plant

There’s no secret to Power Plant. It was created by a Dutch seedbank, and was first bred by Dutch Passion Seeds in 1997. This heavy-yielding sativa was particularly popular for a while as it is a stable strain with a high THC percentage for when it was created. This combination made it especially popular amongst the coffeeshops of the Netherlands.

Power Plant genetics

This strain comes from two or more landrace strains being crossed together. You might be wondering what a landrace strain is? They are the original strains that started everything. Sativa strains have different characteristics and properties depending on which part of the world they originated in. For example, hot countries normally have sativas and indicas normally grow indica plants. Hence, Power Plants’ genetics simply ‘come from landraces.’

Power Plant THC percentage

Power Plant is aptly named. To have as much as 20% THC in the 1990s would have packed a wallop for a lot of people who were used to much weaker strains. The average THC percentage for a sativa is around 13.5% and Power Plant has anywhere from around 15-20% THC potency.

Power Plant price

The power plant is both available in seed form and easy to grow. This fantastic combination means that it’s not expensive at all. In fact, in a lot of Dutch coffeeshops, it’s actually one of the cheapest strains. Many shops will have their own house strain of Power Plant, which will run you at about $8 per gram.

Power Plant taste

The taste of the Power Plant is:

  • Earthy
  • Woody
  • Herbal
  • Floral
  • Citrus

It’s very common for landrace crosses to be a little bit fruity and Power Plant is no different. Once you’ve ground it up in your favorite little grinder, you’ll truly appreciate the smell of the strain. After this, wack it in your flower vape so you can get the full taste of the strain.
Once you’ve actually vaped your bud you can use it again to make edibles. Keep reading to learn more!

Power Plant oil, wax, shatter, edibles

You can make any strain into oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc. This is because you only have to decarboxylate your weed first, and then it’s possible to make it into anything. Edibles are probably the easiest, safest, and healthiest of making weed into something else. However, if you want to make an oil specifically for medicinal use this is also possible.
Using an already vaped bud (AVB) is also possible. That is because there is no combustion, so there is still quite a lot of (now decarboxylated) THC left inside the bud. Simply mix this with oil or butter, and then either cook it or eat as is. This is a perfect way for a cheap and potent high.

Pure Vida strain

These strains are often confused, but they really shouldn’t be as they don’t have much in common. Other than similar terpene profiles and that they both come from landraces, these two don’t actually have much in common. However, folks switch them up from time to time. Even the best tokers make mistakes!

If you're a beginner in search of a stress-relieving sativa you should definitely give Power Plant a shot. This recreational sativa is perfect for anyone looking to curb depression and stress. It's relatively easy to grow and easily enjoyed by all!

Power Plant is a Unique Visual Masterpiece

These Power Plant buds are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Intriguing to the eye, it is rare to see such a wide variety in bud color. Also, the sheer size of the buds and bright outlines from the trim make it a visual master piece. The trichomes even reflect in different shades of color ranging from bright white to burnt yellow. So strange looking it is almost like this strain was actually grown in a power plant.

Power Plant is a powerful Sativa strain known to make patients very social.

A great batch of buds to medicate with before going out in social settings. Should put you in the right frame of mind to be relaxed, happy, and talkative. The taste is hard to explain with this strain; the smoke is extremely smooth, like grape-fruit… with more of a African spice on the exhale. The smell from Power Plant is both earthy and spicy, but definitely still inviting.

Power Plant comes highly recommended for day-time use as it produces a significant head-rush with very little to no physical fatigue. It’s a little stoney though so it won’t be the most inspiring or clear-headed effect that some Sativa strains are known for. Although you could easily wake and bake with this, there are still many more uplifting Sativa strains that are probably better options. Still though… very powerful medicine. The name suits itself perfectly.
