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.
Don’t let the dank smell detour you. The taste and burning smell is totally great. Smooth drags with a powerful punch; but if you limit your amount per sesh, you feel energized & pain free without sinking into a couch. Go at it and you’ll sleep really good.
Hands down my go to bud for everyday pain. One bowl and I’m flopped in bed and the muscle aches are melting away. Pretty difficult to be productive with it though, trying to go to a criminal justice class was a bad idea.
Big chunky nuggets all over with a dangerously potent smell, especially once dried and jarred or bagged up. Hits hard and fast, but also increases as the minutes pass. Definitely a night time smoke. Leaves you feeling damn high but unable to get off the couch. Smells and tastes like hashy/sweet juicy skunkyness. I’m completely sizzled off one bong and it took me prolly 20 minutes to write this
Let me tell y’all something this shit here is top notch I just had it for the first time let me say it’s my #1 now
This is in my top 3 for sure…. The high is out of this world… My goto indica for taste and high.
By far the best strain i’ve smoked, 10/10. Had my friend and I chatting about crazy shit for hours, with a lazy haze seeming to fill the room, shutting out reality for a good hour and a half. Highly recommended above all strains.
