Power Plant is a sativa marijuana strain variety made from African Sativa. This strain produces a clear-headed, buzzy high that will make you feel happy and creative. Power Plant has an aroma that is woody, earthy and pungent. The taste is sharp and peppery. Growers say this strain has a fast growing time and will grow well in just about any environment. Due to its high potency, Power Plant should only be used by consumers with a high THC tolerance.
POWER PLANT: POWERFUL CLASSIC PRODUCING ENORMOUS YIELDS
Power Plant is one of these strains, that became an instant success, once it hit the ganja market. Dutch Passion were the original Power Plant breeders; they searched through the vast lands of South Africa to discover the dankest sativa genetics. Once they’ve encountered their bounty, there was no turning back. They’ve scrutinized the selection process to deliver the best sativa for the Dutch market. With its earthy, spicy, pungent aromas and high THC level, Power Plant has cemented its name in the Hall of Fame.
It’s hard to pinpoint which marijuana strain is highest in THC because strains aren’t an exact science. They can vary across sources, and new ones are popping up constantly.
Then there’s the issue of THC and CBD, two of the most well-known compounds in marijuana.
THC is the psychoactive compound responsible for the high marijuana produces. When people say that a particular strain of weed is very strong, it’s likely a high-THC strain.
High-THC strains will produce strong psychoactive effects and may be beneficial for:
- reducing nausea
- increasing appetite
- reducing pain
- decreasing inflammation
- improving muscle control problems
We’ve rounded up the strains that tend to have the most THC, according to Leafly’s strain explorer.
They’re broken down into three groups, depending on their effects:
- sativas (energetic)
- indicas (relaxing)
- hybrids (a combination)
Keep in mind that there’s some debate around whether sativa and indica strains are all that different from each other.

HOW TO GROW POWER PLANT
Power Plant produces buds in no time. In about 8 weeks, the flowering period is finished and the buds are ready to be harvested. During the vegetation stage, provide this plant with regular amounts of nutrients. On the other hand, during the flowering stage, the buds develop quickly and reach gargantuan sizes, therefore make sure to water more often and increase the nutrient amounts, without overdoing it.
Due to its dank aromas, make sure to support the terpene production by keeping the temperatures under 26°C in the last weeks of flowering.
When grown indoors, insert a carbon filter if you don’t wish to notify your entire neighborhood about your Power Plant endeavors; this cultivar has an intense smell.
Due to its short flowering period, you can plant this sativa outside in colder climates during the summer, because it will finish before the frost kicks in. Power Plant genetics work great in all climates, it’s a very versatile plant.
It’s important to note, that Power Plant strains from different seedbanks differ in their composure. There’s an abundance of breeders, that hybridized and stabilized their own versions of Power Plant, so make sure to adapt your growing operations to the specific genetics provided by the seedbank, and vice versa.

GROW YOUR OWN POWER PLANT
Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 65% Sativa / 35% Indica
THC: 15%, CBD: 2%
This relatively upbeat strain is an inbred descendant of native South African sativas, though it also has some indica genes (65:35 sativa/indica ratio). THC levels vary, as they do with any strain, but available data suggests they’re not especially high, at least not on average. CBD levels are sometimes high, especially for a strain that appeals to recreational uses. Even so, it varies and isn’t generally high enough to suggest Power Plant as a treatment for seizures or other conditions that can be treated with CBD. Instead, it’s good for anxiety and depression, fatigue, ADHD, inflammation, migraine headaches, and lack of appetite. Use this strain for early afternoons or, if you wake and bake, mornings, as it provides a clear-headed boost of energy, with a creative spark and happy euphoria. Power Plant has a sweet taste with earthy, woody flavors. The aroma is similarly sweet, earthy, and woody. The bud is light green with light brown flecks and a silvery dusting of trichomes. Red eyes and cottonmouth are both common side effects, while paranoia and mild headaches are also possible for some users. This isn’t the world’s most popular strain, but it’s found in a surprising number of legal markets, both in the American West and in Europe.
