Golden Goat was a happy accident in Topeka, KS. Being quite a popular strain, I knew I had to try it when I had the opportunity in Denver. It was then that I knew I’d found a wonderful strain. No wonder it was getting so much positive attention.
Golden Goat was created by accident when a Hawaiian-Romulan pollinated Island Sweet Skunk. It’s mostly golden with soft, pink crystals, displaying its sativa-like qualities. The average yield is between 25 and 30 grams per weed. It does well as a multi-branched plant.
Taste & Smell
Golden Goat smells citrusy and earthy. Strong, citrusy notes are the most noticeable flavor when you first smoke it, but then deep, earthy overtones overpower the palate. The final note is sweet, almost like tangerine candy.
This strain, being a hybrid, has fantastic anti-anxiety properties. It is an uplifting high, but watch out if you’re prone to the giggles!
