Weed review: Golden Goat

by Patrick Dalton

What is it?Golden goat is another one of those strains whose origins are steeped in tradition and rumor. It was supposedly bred by accident in Topeka, Kansas, when a male Hawaiian-Romulan pollinated an Island Sweet Skunk. As a grower its excruciatingly painful to hear about such an amateur mistake, but in this case we should all be grateful because this knucklehead created a beautiful strain. At 24.1 percent THC, this hybrid strain smokes all sativa, and has enough other cannabinoids to balance it nicely.

The effectsThis strain is not for beginners. It hits very hard on the first inhale, and leaves you with an intense psychoactive head rush that lasts for almost two hours. For a supposed hybrid, there is no indica sensations anywhere in the cycle. It wears off easily, and the comedown is almost unnoticeable. For a sativa of this strength, the uplifting effect still allows for relatively clear thinking.

The smellThere is an equal amount of sweetness and citrus, with just a bit of earthy scent.

The look Very pale and light green buds that are large for a sativa.

The tasteThe smoke is smooth with hints of sweetness on the exhale.

The final verdictThis is a very powerful strain. It doesn’t take much to make you happy to the point of uncontrollable laughter. The clear high is great for doing mundane activities, yet leaves you confident enough to be able to handle more complex situations should they arise. This is another strain I enjoyed in light doses. Heavier doses will erase all brain activity and you might get a little overwhelmed. Most people like it for daytime and afternoon activities, while allowing the gentle comedown to subside before bedtime.
