Yo, what’s good? My name’s Dan and I’m here to tell you about the Golden Goat strain. This lit bud is a sativa-dominant hybrid that comes from a cross between Island Sweet Skunk and Hawaiian Romulan, and let me tell you, the Hawaiian influence is STRONG with this one. It’s got a sweet, fruity, and tropical flavor that’ll make your mouth water.
When it comes to what it’s good for, Golden Goat is great for chronic pain, cramping, inflammation, and stress. And let me tell you, it’s effects are off the chain! You’ll feel energized, euphoric, and laughing your ass off. And when it comes to growing this dank herb, you can do it indoors or outdoors. If you’re growing indoors, it takes about 9-11 weeks to flower, while outdoor growers can expect a late October harvest.
Now let’s talk about the juicy details of Golden Goat. This strain is straight up the life of the party, especially in Colorado where it’s super popular. But fun fact: it actually originated in Kansas. Yeah, you heard that right. It was accidentally created when a male Hawaiian/Romulan pollinated a female Island Sweet Skunk strain. And thus, the Golden Goat was born.
But enough about how it came to be, let’s talk about what it is. Golden Goat is a sativa-dominant hybrid with a 65:35 sativa to indica ratio. It’s known for its vibrant colors and tropical aroma that’ll have you feeling like you’re on a beach in Hawaii. Most people who smoke Golden Goat say that its effects are mildly psychedelic and uplifting with energizing euphoria. You’ll also notice a heightened perception of both auditory and visual stimuli, which can be a little trippy if you’re not used to it.
But don’t worry, after the sativa effects wear off, you’ll feel relaxed and mellow. And the best part? You won’t feel sedated or couch-locked as long as you don’t overdo it. And trust me, you don’t want to overdo it. Novice smokers might find themselves feeling a little paranoid or dizzy if they smoke too much.
When it comes to the smell and taste of this lit bud, Golden Goat hits you with refreshing citrus and earthy notes that are balanced out by a sweet tropical flavor courtesy of its Hawaiian genetics. And its appearance is straight up eye candy. It’s got shades of light green and pink that almost look neon, and it’s covered in THC crystals that shimmer in the light.
But let’s talk about growing Golden Goat. It’s a clone-only strain, so you’ll need to get clippings from a mature female plant if you want to grow it. And be warned: it’s not the easiest strain to grow. Experienced growers rate its difficulty as moderate, so beginners beware. It can be grown indoors or outdoors, but most people agree that it’s better suited for outdoor growing since it can grow up to 78 inches tall.
And speaking of outdoor growing, Golden Goat does best in temperatures between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. So if you’re growing indoors, make sure to recreate those same conditions. And don’t forget about humidity levels! You’ll also need to make sure that the roots have enough room to grow since this plant is quite branchy.
When it comes to the THC content of Golden Goat, the highest reported THC content recorded was around 23%. But on average, you’re looking at around 19.5%. And when it comes to CBD content, it’s pretty low. Most Golden Goat strains will have a CBD content of around 1% or less.
But let’s talk about the medical benefits of smoking Golden Goat. While doctors can’t prescribe specific strains, some people believe that Golden Goat has several potential health benefits. For example, it may help with depression, stress, chronic fatigue, insomnia, migraines, and joint pain. But as with any medication, results may vary.
And finally, let’s talk about the possible side effects of smoking Golden Goat. The most common ones are dry mouth and dehydration, so make sure to drink plenty of hydrating fluids before, during, and after smoking. Some people may also experience heightened paranoia and dizziness if they overconsume, and a small fraction of users may feel more anxious after smoking.
In conclusion, Golden Goat is a lit strain that’s perfect for parties or just chilling at home. Its uplifting effects followed by mellow relaxation make it the perfect hybrid strain for those who want the best of both worlds. Just make sure not to overdo it if you’re a novice smoker or you may find yourself feeling a little paranoid or dizzy.
