After winning the High Times Cup in 1998 and winning 2nd prize at the 2003 Cannabis Cup, the popularity of the indica-leaning hybrid strain Pot of Gold soared. Its cured buds are covered with a visible coating of trichomes amid slightly orange pistils that almost give it a golden hue that supports its naming.
The scent and flavor of Pot of Gold are a mix of sweet earth and fruit, bearing hints of pine as well.
THC levels tend to average in the mid-teens, making this a go-to strain for novice and veteran consumers alike according to reviewers.
Effects have been described as heavying the eyes and leading to sedation, with reviewers preferring to use it in the evenings or at night. Some have experienced less chronic pain and sill others have used it to fight insomnia.
The parent strains of Pot of Gold are Hindu Kush and Skunk #1.
This is one of the best strains I’ve found for my condition. It’s especially good at limiting muscle spasms and uplifting my mood!
Pot of gold is my favorite strain. good all day medicine. relaxing but won’t put you to sleep. excellent pain relief. not an over powering strain but a great medicinal strain that leaves you with a clear head and no burnout effect.
Hands down my most favorite indica I’ve ever had. Smells wonderful, tastes like the nectar of the gods, and sooo sticky. Just wonderful, A+
A+++ I prefer OGs, but deep down inside I have a soft spot for UK Cheese. This POG is like a UK Cheese meets a GDP in my opinion, and has really impressed me for a non-hybrid flower. Gorgeous layer of resin and frostiness while smelling like sweet blueberries
This is a very chill strain. Doesn’t look like the chronic- don’t expect a ton of trichomes, but it is very dense and dank-smelling. Your classic indica, this weed creeps up on you, and before you know it, bam, you’re blazed and just laughing at stuff on the couch. Great weed!!!
