Overview of Golden Goat

"Golden goat," characterized by its light green color and yellowish/orange hairs, was the product of pure fate. The strain was created in Topeka, Kansas and has two legendary parents. The resulting seeds were found to grow into fruity scented Golden Goat plants, named after Golden Goat Recycling machines, which give off the sticky-sweet scent of amalgamated soda syrups when they heat up in the dead of summer.

The effects will be pleasant, but not insanely strong -- THC content tends to fall anywhere from 13 percent to 23 percent. Thanks to its indica parentage, Golden Goat also packs in 1 percent CBD, which is where the pain-relieving effects take hold.

When you get a whiff, you'll find a seriously sweet lemon-cherry scent, reminiscent of both of this strain's parent plants.

Positive Effects of Golden Goat

The sativa-dominant hybrid is known for producing a kind of giddy euphoria, leaving smokers feeling relaxed, creative, energized, and uplifted. The high will leave you giggling for a couple of hours, followed by a short "cooling down" period where the relaxing effects will still be noticeable.

Medical Benefits of Golden Goat

The Lineage of Golden Goat

Golden Goat is a stellar cannabis strain with a premium heritage. It is a cross between Island Sweet Skunk and Hawaiian Romulan. Both shine out in Golden Goats top-notch flavor, high, and jar appeal.

Growing Golden Goat

For prospective growers, prepare for a tall, lanky plant that needs a ton of root space. While that may seem like a deal breaker for indoor growers, Golden Goat only grows well in ideal conditions, so it's not always a good choice for outdoor growers (depending on region). The plant does better if you forgo topping, but you'll want to ensure you're regularly pruning of the lower branchy stems. It'll also take on a golden glow as it gets close to harvest time, making this strain live up to its name even further.
