Strain Review: Royal Medic From Royal Queen Seeds

3 min

Royal Medic is an incredible strain hailed for its moderate THC and high CBD levels.

Royal Medic, as the name would imply, is a strain highly sought after for its incredible relaxation and relief properties. Royal Medic, from Royal Queen Seeds, was produced by crossing two unique, high CBD strains: Critical and Juanita la Lagrimosa, both originally cultivated in Spain. With only moderate levels of THC and high CBD, you can expect to stay clear-headed and focused, while the strain's body effects set in.

People have always turned to marijuana for a safe and fun way to get high. It has only been in recent years that science has truly taken an interest in understanding cannabis' true potential. In an effort to rid the body of excess synthetic chemicals, many are turning to cannabis for physical relief. Select breeding has resulted in Royal Medic, a strain specifically created for its healing touch. Blue Medic's high CBD content with THC at around 10%, creates an uplifting and relaxing experience. It is often turned to in order to quell nausea, relieve inflammation, reduce anxiety and to combat the side effects of cancer treatments.


Let me say that Royal Medic is a big beautiful plant at full maturity. It is a heavy yielder that can easily grow to over a meter and a half outdoors. You shouldn't have any trouble harvesting 450 to 475g per square meter indoors or upwards of 525g per plant outdoors of dried quality bud. Royal Medic produces a large central cola with smaller bud clusters working their way down the stem. Its parent strain, Critical is responsible for the great yields you can expect from this surprising sativa dominant strain.

Royal Medic gets its sativa traits from its Juanita la Lagrimosa side of the family. Another high CBD sativa, Juanita la Lagrimosa is known for its 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD, making it great strain for maintaining clarity while ingesting. Royal Medic also inherited from Juanita a fruity, hazy aroma. In the garden, Royal Medic has an almost lemony scent; present but not overwhelming. You might almost mistake Royal Medic for an indica if you didn't know better. You'll see an array of large fan leaves with narrow blades. They often take on a purplish hue. Royal Medic is a good looking and sturdy plant that will thrive in most standard cannabis environments.

Royal Medic is going to take about 8-9 weeks to fully mature, but considering the high yielding nature of the strain, it will be worth the wait. Many growers have reported that germination with Royal Medic happens in as little as 24 hours and maintains strong growth through rooting. These seeds will produce strong plants that won't require a lot of fuss, making them a great choice for growers of all skill levels.
