With Jack Herer as the father and a dominant Indica as the mother, the Golden Nugget strain was born. It has Sativa-dominant genetics and a high THC content, making it a great medical strain and perfect for those with a high tolerance.
When the effects of smoking Golden Nugget settle in, they’ll stay around for a while. The long-lasting buzz high will energize and motivate, so it’s great to use as a wake and bake strain to start your day off with some positive energy. The high is happy and if something makes you laugh, it might turn into a serious case of the giggle fits. Also, you could jump right into a creative zone after taking a few pulls.
True to its Sativa-dominance, Golden Nugget grows long and lean. Its heights can climb upwards of 220 cm. It’s a great indoor or outdoor strain but will need tall ceilings when grown inside. There’s a 10 to 12 week flowering time, which puts the outdoor harvest right around early October. The yields on this plant are generous, bringing in anywhere from 400-500gr/m².
The buds on this Golden Nugget strain are big and compact. The chunky nugs are covered in a bright golden sheen making them shine like the gold goddess that she is. Also, they’re sticky and resinous which is why it has such a high THC content. Its aroma during the early and mid flowering cycle is pretty mild, but don’t fret. The strong earthy and spicy aromas come through in a dominant and pleasant way towards the end of its flowering period.
Golden Nugget gets a gold star in many categories. For starters, it stands out for its strong therapeutic effects, its heavenly aroma, smooth and rich tasting notes, and great yields.
The tasting notes of Golden Nugget are rich, deep, and tasty. And on top of that, the toke is smooth and easy, with no harsh throat hit or coughing. The flavours are mostly spicy with some notes of citrus. As you continue to smoke this strain, skunky and earthy flavours begin to pour in.
