About Golden Goat

A sativa-dominant cross between Hawaiian-Romulan and Island Sweet Skunk, Golden Goat was reportedly an unplanned baby. According to some sources, the strain was first created in Topeka, Kansas as a result of an unplanned fertilization between the Hawaiian father and Sweet Skunk mother, and was first made available in Colorado around 2009.

Unplanned or not, we’re sure glad Golden Goat is here to bring its good vibes our way, and after one hit of this, trust us, you will be too!

Golden Goat Strain Effects

60% sativa and 40% indica, Golden Goat's high builds up slowly rather than hitting users all at once. It starts with a buzzy, sativa-like effect that alters perception, enhancing surroundings with sharper sounds and brighter colors. After a short while, this sensory distortion eases into a state of physical relaxation.

Users experience a calming sensation that spreads from the neck to the limbs, grounding the experience and preventing the sativa effects from becoming overwhelming. The body stone from Golden Goat isn't overly heavy, so it won't glue you to the couch - you can still move around comfortably, making it a versatile strain for daytime or nighttime use.

All in all, Golden Goat users report feeling:

  • Energetic
  • Uplifted
  • Talkative
  • Creative
  • Happy
  • Euphoric 

But the strain is pretty strong, so it isn't fit for novices or those prone to cannabis-induced anxiety or paranoia. In fact, everyone should tread lightly when using Golden Goat. You know how a little gold can take you a long way? Well, the same goes for Golden Goat. Smoke too much, and you won't end up like Midas, you’ll end up feeling as dried out and stiff as everything he touched. 

Golden Goat Strain Benefits

Golden Goat offers more than just a recreational experience; it provides certain medical advantages attributed to its small CBD content and sedative indica properties.

The combination of elevated mood and physical ease can prove beneficial in managing symptoms related to anxiety or other mental stressors. Its gentle pain-relieving properties make it useful for alleviating persistent discomfort. 

Additionally, in higher doses, Golden Goat can induce sedation, aiding in achieving restful sleep and easing the challenges of insomnia. While its high is relatively brief, typically lasting 1.5 to 2.5 hours, its potent THC content certainly makes up for it!

In summary, Golden Goat can be helpful when dealing with:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Pain
  • Discomfort
  • Insomnia (in higher doses)

Golden Goat Strain Flavor - The Genetics & Terpenes

Golden Goat has dense, medium-sized buds with a clear indica look, featuring tightly-packed leaves. These leaves are bright green, sometimes showing hints of pink or red in certain versions due to cold weather during their growth.

The flowers are resin-rich and covered in amber trichomes, giving the cured buds a golden shine, which is where the strain gets its name. Well-grown and properly cured buds are sticky and leave residue when touched. The scent is strong and complex, starting with fruity and tropical notes, common in strains related to Hawaiian landraces like Mango.

This fruity scent combines with a slightly sour hint, likely from its parent strain, Island Sweet Skunk. As you burn it, there's also a spicy and earthy aroma. When smoked, it produces a strong and sharp smoke that might make your eyes water and cause coughing. 

Some enjoy it, while others find the mix of flavors a bit conflicting, leading to the speculation that the "goat" in its name refers to its taste. It's a pretty strong-smelling strain, so if you want to be discreet, keep that in mind.

Golden Goat gets its unique flavors and aromas from its terpene profile. Terpenes are present in all kinds of plants, not just cannabis, and they're responsible for the specific scents and tastes of each plant. For instance, you can think of the relaxing scent of lavender or the sweet aroma of oranges – those are both thanks to terpenes!

In cannabis, terpenes play a crucial role beyond just providing distinct flavors and smells. They also contribute to something called the entourage effect. This happens when various compounds in cannabis work together with cannabinoids to boost and intensify their effects. So, terpenes aren't only about the way cannabis tastes and smells, they also team up with other compounds to enhance how it affects us.

Here’s Golden Goat’s terpene profile, listed from order of most to least prevalent:

  • Phellandrene
  • Campheme
  • Myrcene
  • Linalool
  • Carene
  • Caryophyllene
  • Limonene
  • Terpinolene
  • Valencene
  • Pinene
  • Humulene
  • Ocimene

Other than terpenes, Golden Goat also boasts quite some THC— 19-22%, to be exact— making it a decently strong strain (and the reason it’s not so well-suited for beginners). Additionally, it also contains a plethora of other cannabinoids, albeit at a lesser concentration:

CBD

0.79 - 1.12%

CBC

0.3 - 0.76%

CBG

0.25 - 1.02%

CBN

0.04 - 0.22%

THCV

0.3 - 1.1%

Information Regarding Growing Golden Goat 

Golden Goat is exclusively available as a clone, which means growers can't buy packaged seeds to cultivate it. Instead, they have to acquire and transplant clippings from mature Golden Goat plants. While it can thrive both indoors and outdoors, its distinctively sativa plant height might make outdoor cultivation a more attractive choice.

For those interested in growing Golden Goat or any cannabis strain outdoors, it's important to maintain consistent sunlight and temperatures ranging between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Due to their tall and airy nature, with flowering nodes spaced apart, Golden Goat plants may not necessarily need extensive trimming of broad fan leaves during the vegetative phase. Similar to many other sativa strains, the flowering period tends to be relatively lengthy, typically occurring over a span of 9 to 11 weeks.

Summary 

Golden Goat is a favorite on West Coast because it strikes a nice balance between keeping your mind clear and promoting physical relaxation. You can enjoy it in social settings or when you're looking for some quiet time to think, but one thing’s for certain: this strain is certainly the G.O.A.T.
