Golden Goat Strain
The Golden Goat strain is a classic cannabis cultivar from the Midwest that has been mesmerizing marijuana growers and smokers for many years. This hybrid of Island Sweet Skunk and Hawaiian Romulan offers uplifting cerebral effects and a luscious tropical-fruit flavor. Its abundant yield and relatively quick flowering time make Golden Goat popular among commercial growers. This legendary strain is one of the finest Sativas to come from the United States.
Golden Goat Strain History
Golden Goat was originally created by Mr. Dank—a cannabis grower based in Topeka, Kansas. One of Mr. Dank’s Hawaiian Romulan plants turned out to be a male and, before the grower could separate it from the other plants, it pollinated an Island Sweet Skunk female.
From this unplanned pairing, Golden Goat was born. According to cannabis legend, Mr. Dank reportedly named the strain after the syrupy-sweet soda bottles found around the Golden Goat recycling machines in the area.
After its appearance in the early 2010s, Golden Goat became extremely popular in Kansas and its neighboring state, Colorado. Soon, it made its way to the rest of the country, earning a reputation for its sweet flavor and energizing high. Today, this strain is sought after by marijuana growers and users around the globe.

Growing the Golden Goat Strain

This Sativa-dominant hybrid has a significant stretch during the flowering stage and produces a large yield soon thereafter.
Golden Goat offers the best results when grown indoors in soil. However, this strain is also suitable for growing outdoors or in greenhouses. Growers will need to provide the plant with plenty of space and airflow in order to produce large yields during flowering.
