A Smooth & Spicy Sativa of Soaring Highs
The product of several South African landrace strains, Power Plant Feminized is a particularly potent Sativa-heavy hybrid strain that appeals on all counts, from her earthy, woodsy aroma, to her soaring, euphoric buzz.
Cannabis connoisseurs who’ve sampled this weed won’t be surprised to hear that she’s a multi-award winning specimen, released in 1997 to win her first second-place award at the High Life Cup in 2006, and going on to win first place in 2008 and again in 2009.
With a THC content of between 18% and 20%, this popular daytime strain works to boost your vigor with her clear-headed high. Despite her Sativa-dominance though, this herb has just enough Indica to temper her chatterbox side and keep you from getting out of control while you toke.
Since the uplifting effects of this pot are so potent, she’s a choice strain for medical tokers, and though she can alleviate various aches and pains, she’s truly phenomenal when it comes to psychological issues such as stress and anxiety.
Power Plant is in high demand in dispensaries across the globe, but luckily those looking to cultivate their own stash will find growing her to be an absolute breeze. Though her growth traits make for a tall and lanky specimen, this works in your favor when it comes to the size of her humongous nugs.
Yes, this hybrid is a damn heavy yielder, and a dream to grow with only the most basic of requirements. And that’s not to mention that her all-fem seeds make pollination a concern of the past.
Flavor and Fragrance of Power Plant Feminized
There’s something deliciously natural in lighting up a joint of Power Plant Fem, like you’re communing with nature as you inhale the pungent, earth and wood notes and herbal aroma.
In flavor, she’s a sharper, spicier toke with notes of pepper in her smooth smoke that linger in the mouth long after you’re done.
You wouldn’t name a mild strain Power Plant, so it’s no surprise to hear that this herb's a fairly potent entry at 18% to 20% THC content. Sativa-leaning with a strong but still clear-headed high, that lifts up your mood into a state of sheer euphoria.
As this sensation begins to intensify, you’ll notice an increase in your energy and vigor, which is ideal for creative pursuits. To balance this out, this strain’s Indica side will bestow a physical sense of calm that grounds you and ensures you don’t become hyperactive or silly. This can make for a great pre-work smoke to set you up for the day.
Due to Power Plant’s enthusiastic chatterbox effect, she can be a great weed for parties and social occasions, sure to get you in the mood.
Though a popular daytime strain and wake-and-bake, this herb can also work well when you need to pull an all-nighter, as she gives you just the right amount of energy to power through tasks. Keep in mind though that a few tokes will keep you awake for hours, so if you’re after an early night, best skip this one.
Though there are many positives to this ganja, she has some downsides just like any other strain. Commonly, tokers report dry, red and bloodshot eyes and cottonmouth, but these are easily rectified by drinking plenty of water before, during and after your sesh.
More adverse effects seem to occur with first-time tokers, or those with a poor THC tolerance. These include headaches, lightheadedness and dizziness, and sometimes increased anxiety and heightened paranoia. To avoid such occurrences, keep it low and slow, or opt for a lower THC strain.
Medical Uses of Power Plant Feminized
As much as Power Plant Fem is awesome recreationally, she’s also versatile enough to be useful on the medical scene, and her popularity within the medicinal marijuana community continues to grow.
As a Sativa-heavy strain, this cannabis is commonly used for her psychological benefits, as her euphoric effects can clear stress and worry from the mind and instead replace them with happier thoughts and a more positive outlook - great for combatting anxiety, depression and PTSD.
Due to this herb’s THC content, she’s also proficient as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory, capable of easing the symptoms of conditions like migraines, arthritis, inflammation and more.
Like many cannabis strains, Power Plant also has an appetite boosting effective, colloquially referred to as “the munchies”. For those struggling with nausea as a side effect of such treatments as chemotherapy, or those with a lack of appetite due to eating disorders, this weed can work wonders to bring on serious hunger pangs that are impossible to ignore.
Growing Power Plant Feminized Seeds
An entirely pleasurable growing experience, cultivating Power Plant Feminized is simple whether you’re a novice grower or more seasoned. Fuss-free with feminized seeds to reduce time spent identifying males in the batch and minimize the chance of pollination.
Heavy-yielding as she is, this plant is average-sized at between 3 and 5 feet when fully mature, with buds that occasionally reach up to a foot in length. Exhibiting classic Sativa growth traits, she tends to stretch upwards and requires the space to grow, so indoor growers should take this into consideration before germinating.
Indoors, a Screen of Green (SCROG) setup will improve both the quality of the buds and the amount produced, particularly when combined with regular pruning. Indoors, cultivators should also be aware that this herb has a strong scent that permeates surprisingly well, so we’d recommend the use of an odor filtration system to keep that aroma under control.
Power Plant flowers for between 8 and 10 weeks, and in an optimal environment yields beautifully to provide 1.6 to 2 ounces of nugs per square foot.
Outdoors, this plant can impress even further with larger yields. She loves the sunny and warm climes of the Mediterranean but can thrive in a northern, cooler environment as well with proper timing. Take care of her, and she’ll be ready for harvesting around the middle of October, yielding around 21 ounces per plant.
Following on from her noughties award victories, Power Plant Feminized went on to receive a further three titles in 2016 as yet more evidence that this strain just gets better and better.
An all-natural herbal experience, the wood and incense notes of this weed blend into a delightfully smooth smoke that coats and softens the throat even as she invigorates the mind. A cerebral and soaring affair, this ganja’s high is a great choice for all-nighters, social occasions, or even to get you through the working day - but as a medicinal strain, she’s truly a winner for psychological maladies.
Great for newbies just learning their craft, Power Plant Fem is an easy strain to grow right from the start, with all-fem seeds removing pollination concerns and growth traits that require only a SCROG setup and a bit of pruning to keep in check. Pungent she may be, but aside from taking up plenty of vertical space, there are no real downsides to this hybrid, and her yields are enormous and speak for themselves.
