About Power Plant

Power Plant Marijuana Strain

Power Plant is a stable sativa landrace hybrid with South African origins. The THC content ranges between 15%-20%. The strain was created by Dutch Passions in 1997. It later won second place in the 2006 High Life Cup. In 2008 and 2009 it won the same award taking first position.

The smell is pungent and earthy with a mix of pine scented undertones from the terpenes. It gives a gentle cerebral hit with uplifting effects. It energizes and is good for those days when you need to get a mental boost. On the body, this strain also causes relaxation and may induce sleep.

Some patients have found the cerebral effects to be overwhelming; with accompanying side effects such as dry mouth and blood shot eyes. When this happens, going slow on the herb may provide relief. Staying hydrated is also essential.

Power Plant will flower within seven and nine weeks after planting. Dutch Passion recommends growing this strain indoors or in green houses. When grown outdoors, you require Mediterranean climates and expect to harvest in mid October.

Terpenes

Terpene Profile

Power Plant is known to have a sharp and peppery taste. This is mostly due to the abounding caryophyllene terpene present in this strain. Terpens are responsible for the aromas in plants including cannabis. They also enhance the therapeutic value of the plant by offering their own unique medicinal benefits. The terpenes and cannabinoids work in synergy in order to boost and promote a longer lasting health effect. Power Plant has the following abundant terpenes: Caryophyllene, linalool, valencene, camphene and alpha bisabolol.

Caryophyllene

This terp gives of a pepperish scent with spicy under tonnes. It is also found in black pepper, cloves, cinnamon, basil and oregano. It is able to bind to CB2 receptors in the body; this makes it a potent anti inflammatory agent. Recent research has shown that this terp is beneficial in treating alcohol withdrawal symptoms. It is also useful as an anti inflammatory and anti anxiety agent.

Linalool

This terp has the smell of fresh lavender. It has great relaxing effects on the mind and is useful in treating symptoms of stress and anxiety. It has also been shown to have some anti convulsant properties, much in the same way that diazepam acts. 

Camphene

This is the terp that smells of fir trees or damp woodlands. Sometimes it is mistaken for myrcene because of the smell. It has anti inflammatory properties and is mostly incorporated in the treatment of skin inflammation such as in the case of eczema or psoriasis. It also has anti oxidizing properties when combined with vitamin C.

Valencene

Not much is known of valencene, the terp that smells of Valencia oranges. Mostly it is useful as an insect repellant.

Alpha bisabolol

This terp has a robust floral smell and is also found in chamomile. It has anti bacterial properties and is useful in the treatment of wounds and skin irritation.
