About this Indica Strain

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.

Pot of Gold

Review

Traditionally, a pot of gold is what you find at the end of the rainbow and you’ll certainly find that getting hold of some Pot of Gold weed is a highly rewarding experience. This Indica dominant strain was first grown in the Netherlands and is the result of a cross between Hindu Kush and Skunk #1. It confirmed its reputation as a connoisseurs’ choice in 2003 when it took third place in the Indica section of the High Times Cannabis Cup.

When you light up Pot of Gold weed, you get an unmistakeable smell of quality black hash and the flavor is quite similar with the addition of some sweet, fruity tones. A soaring, narcotic high comes on very quickly after the first toke leaving you with a powerfully cerebral high that won’t leave you lurching for the couch. Medically, this weed can be used for muscular pain and stress.

Pots of Gold seeds grow into plants of medium height with mid-green leaves that darken as the plant matures. The dense buds are sticky with silver crystals and THC content varies from a respectable 15 percent to a high 18 percent.

This isn’t the easiest weed to grow as it requires good ventilation and its tendency to develop mould means that temperatures and humidity have to be carefully controlled. It’s a good idea to prune the lower side stems to help with air circulation. Indoor flowering time is eight to nine weeks and yields are around 600 grams per square metre.

Due to its Hindu Kush heritage, the Pot of Gold strain is quite hardy so it can be grown outdoors in temperate northern climates; just make sure it isn’t affected by frost. Harvest in the northern hemisphere is in the first half of October.

If you have intermediate gardening skills, Pot of Gold weed will reward you with a generous crop of top grade weed, but beginners should look elsewhere for their first growing attempt.

In depth review of Pot of Gold weed, a hardy strain that requires some gardening skill but rewards the patient grower with an abundance of top quality weed. ]]>
