Golden Goat Strain
An incredibly sweet and potent strain, Golden Goat is a sativa-dominant plant with a strongly cerebral and social effects package. Its large yield of tangy buds makes it an excellent fusion of production and connoisseur-grade final product
Golden Goat is a Sativa-dominant cross between a male Hawaiian-Romulan and a female Island Sweet Skunk. This strain is reported to have been created in Kansas as a result of an unplanned pollination event between the Hawaiian father and Sweet Skunk mother, and first made available in Colorado in 2009.
Taste & Smell
Golden Goat is a clone-only strain, meaning that in order to cultivate it, growers can’t purchase packaged seeds, but instead need to obtain and transplant clippings from mature Golden Goat plants. While it can be successfully grown outdoors or indoors, the characteristically sativa height of its plants may make outdoor growing a more appealing option. That said, those looking to grow this or any other cannabis strain outdoors will need to ensure consistent sunlight and temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Its light green and pink coloration recall its Hawaiian sativa side while the aroma calls upon the ISS mother most directly.
Incredibly sweet mentholated lemon zest and cherry grenadine smell that brings to mind both the ISS and Hawaiian sides of the lineage
Exactly like the smell, it has a complex mentholated sweet-sour-spicy tropical fruit flavor that lingers on the palate and perfumes the room with a spicy, incense-heavy Haze-like smoke
This strain exhibits heavy, potent sativa effects that can be a little much for the anxiety-prone at times, with a racing heart, buzzing body, and near-frenzied thought patterns. For those who like racier sativas, it will provide a wonderful creative and social boost, seemingly making it impossible to sit down at times.
Because they are tall and wispy with widely-spaced flowering nodes, Golden Goat plants may not require growers to trim broad fan leaves during the vegetative stage. As with many other sativas, golden goat seeds the flowering period can be long, happening within 9 to 11 weeks.
Very popular in West Coast dispensaries, Golden Goat maintains a consistent appeal for its balance between clearheaded thoughtfulness and physical calm. Its versatility makes it as welcome in conversational social situations as it is in more quiet, introspective settings. We can thank Golden Goat’s many landrace ancestors — Hawaiian and North American on one side, Afghani, Colombian, and Mexican on the other — for such a fun and productive high, even if they’ve produced some clashing and stinky goat-like odors.
