The CBD content can go as high as 0.88% too.

This cannabis has a woody and pungent aroma with a peppery flavor. The dominant terpene is Myrcene. The strain has won multiple awards, including the Highlife Cup. Its uplifting effects make it suitable for use during the day or in the evening for social events.

Power Plant Strain Cannabinoids

THC 16.6 - 18.8% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.73 - 1.01% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.26 - 0.94% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.3 - 0.96% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.16 - 0.24% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.23 - 1.06% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

I am a construction worker and I love my job but all the heavy lifting, mixing and moving has began to take a toll on me. My cousin passed me a joint one weekend and by the third drag, all my tense muscles began to relax. I feel so free and happy.

My mind is always racing. I bet if there was a mind racing competition, Id be topping the table. I started vaping this brand last month and I cant say exactly when all my worries faded away. It calms me and keeps me grounded. I will definitely be buying more often. I never want to run out of it.

I read on leafly that it has a THC level of 15% but the one I bought yesterday had a level of 18%. Maybe it depends on the yield.

Smoking weed is my favorite thing to do when I feel out of place or out of tune with life. Power plant is very effective for my insomnia. I have tried others like critical mass, but the sleep was not long nor was it deep.

Woody and nutty fragrance which reminds me of summer. The fragrance is not long lasting so I dont have to worry about someone guessing what is smelling in my room.

The smell of the Power Plant is much connected to the earth and nutty. It gives off notes of wood but the fragrance is not long-lasting so it cannot be distinguished in a room after it was put out. The taste is the combination of spiciness and wood flavor.
Developed by Dutch Passion in the 1990s, this bud has its origins in South Africa, although exact parentage remains unknown. The strain has a higher percentage of sativa genes and the THC levels can be anywhere from 15% to 20%, which is relatively high.
Power Plant is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that comes from South African strains. It has been the subject of many variations, at least 10 at the last count, but the original version remains the best. It was released by the Dutch Passion Seed Company of Amsterdam in 1997 and has been solely selectively inbred ever since.
