The mother of Golden Nugget, Golden Goat is a “happy accident,” an unintentional three way cross from Kansas of Romulan, a Hawaiian sativa, and Island Sweet Skunk. She is especially popular in Colorado, and it is a curiosity why she has not made her way elsewhere in the country. The many high points of Golden Goat are in her aroma, flavor, effect, ease-of-growth, and yield. Golden Goat smells and tastes like a soda factory dumpster in July. She is syrupy and almost sickly-sweet, with tropical flavors of lemon, lime, citrus, mango, and exotic fruit juices. She is quick-flowering and high-yielding, especially for a sativa. Golden Goat’s lengthy high is euphoric and, when grown properly, can even be psychedelic. Her potency is easy to underestimate, and paranoia is a distinct possibility.
Stardawg improves on the Golden Goat in every manner. Taking after both parents, Golden Nugget is easy to grow, high-yielding, and has a superb bouquet. Some Golden Nugget plants smell like a candied green apple, and many phenotypes have a “sour candy” aroma going for them. Obviously, the Stardawg favorably imparts some of his sour funk onto the cross. Golden Nugget’s effect is appropriate for daytime use, with many reporting the smoke to be euphoric, clear, and even energizing.
Unique phenotypes abound in this cross, with purple coloring and incredible aromas not contained by either parent. The smoke is typically very manageable without sacrificing potency or satisfaction. Fruity sativa lovers will love this one; if you’ve been searching for the Golden Goat, Golden Nugget is a first introduction that will spoil you rotten. Be sure to also check out Purple Badlands if you prefer sweet, citrus aromas. Greenpoint Seeds provides discrete, world-wide shipping at exceptional delivery speeds.
