Description: An incredibly sweet and potent strain, Golden Goat is a Sativa-dominant plant with a strongly cerebral and social effects package. Its light green and pink coloration recall its Hawaiian Sativa side while the aroma calls upon the ISS mother most directly.
Story: The strain was created in Topeka, Kansas largely by accident when a male Hawaiian-Romulan pollinated MrDank’s freak Island Sweet Skunk mother. The best plant of the resulting seeds was named “Golden Goat” after the smell of Golden Goat Recycling machines in the dead of summer, when all the soda syrup smells would mingle in the hot sun.
Flowering Time: 67-77 days, the earlier harvest tends to product the best flavor while a later harvest improves yield
Preferred Growing Medium: Takes after the Hawaiian Sativa side of the family structure-wise, growing tall and consuming a lot of root space in ideal conditions. It’s a branchy plant that grows best untopped, but liked judicious pruning of lower lateral stems to encourage top growth. The wispy structure fills out late in harvest, taking on a golden appearance as it gets closer to finish.
Scent: Incredibly sweet mentholated lemon zest and cherry grenadine smell that brings to mind both the ISS and Hawaiian sides of the lineage
Flavor: 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
Effects: 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. It’s a strain that works best on a sunny day with friends rather than a night home alone. The Romulan element adds a quality pain reduction and muscle tension relief element that seems to kick in most strongly later in the duration, making the body more able to keep up with the brain’s demands.
