Also known as ‘Phoenix Tears’ or Full Plant Extract (FPE), the unique and rich extract contains not only cannabinoids like THC, but also beneficial plant oils, lipids, fats and terpenes specifically from the Romulan strain. Together, these compounds amplify one another providing an ‘entourage’ of effects.

- Indica dominant hybrid, around 75% Indica to 25% Sativa
- Available in two different sizes, 2 ml and 5 ml
- Over 68% THC with 68%+ cannabinoid content
More about its Characteristics and Potency
The combination of Romulan, and the strong effects of RSO provides a deep relaxation of Indica traits for users, with a heavy head high, too. The strain is well-known for couch-locking type of effects, and in fact, was named after Star Trek for feeling like ‘dents in your head’ like the same-named race on the show. It’s preferred for nighttime use, and loved by those with insomnia for its sedating qualities. Romulan is also notorious for delivering the munchies, while it produces an elevated euphoria.
Use and Effects
Keep in mind, the manner in which you ingest RSO, will affect its onset of effects and the duration. If swallowed or digested like an edible, you’ll feel effects within 45 minutes – 1 hour and will last for approximately 4-6 hours. By holding the liquid under your tongue sublingually, for 30 – 120 seconds, you’ll feel effects almost immediately which can last anywhere from 1 hour – 10, depending on your dose. The variety of cannabinoids combined with natural plant matter has grown popular with claims to be able to ‘cure cancer’. Its’ potency also helps aid common conditions and symptoms like –
- Eating disorders
- Chronic pain
- Chronic stress
- Anxiety & depression
- Nerve pain
- Appetite Loss
Tips on Consuming RSO Romulan
It’s recommended to begin low and slow with RSO at first, to see how it affects you individually. Experts advise beginning with three small doses a day, approximately every 8 hours. After the first week, you can begin doubling the amount every 4 days, until you’ve reached your desired effects, medically or recreationally.
