Golden Gate Kush
About Golden Gate Kush
Golden Gate Kush is also called Golden Gate and is a strain bred by Golden Lion Genetics. Its parents were Funky B*tch (Golden Goat) and Very Berry Kush, so the strain has a varied international heritage and a cocktail of flavors to match. It’s well-regarded for its ability to increase appetites and calm nerves, though with a huge couchlock on the end, we can’t recommend the strain for use during the day. If you’re looking for an aromatic strain that progresses from energizing to sedating faster than you can think, Golden Gate Kush is worth a look.
Golden Lion Genetics breeds and sells cannabis in ten countries, including Afghanistan, Columbia, Mexico, Thailand, and the United States, from which Golden Gate Kush gets its international genetics. The strain’s flavor is spicy and fruity at first, something it probably got from Very Berry Kush. This progresses into sour, more earthy flavors of herbs and pine as you smoke. The Golden Gate Kush plant is a dark green color with broad leaves and a light dusting of clear trichomes. Ample, curly orange pistils poke out of the central cola. When grown properly, the plant has a THC level of around 19% on average, though further lab testing is needed to know the full range of its content.
The strain’s major selling point is its euphoria-inducing effects, which settle in as you begin smoking the lemon-pine bud, preferably in the evening. At first, you’ll feel high, creative, energetic, and kind of numb. Your appetite will be pushed to the front of your brain, and before long you’ll be locked to your couch and ready for bed. Quite a few users report dry mouth and anxiety as potential side effects on Golden Gate.
When you smoke Golden Gate Kush, you’ll need a calm place to kick back and relax. We recommend this strain for late-evening recovery hours from a long day’s work when you want to be rid of pain, stress, and headaches, especially if your appetite is low and your energy is down. Golden Gate Kush is a great little rollercoaster – one punch up high and two back down to the cushions of your couch. So long as you don’t mind some tingling numbness, lemon pine flavors, and euphoric pain relief, the strain has a lot to offer. World-class international genetics aside, it’s a little hard to come by and similar to a few other strains out there. But a reasonable THC level and a potent flavor make the strain a worthy smoke for users of any experience level, provided they can scrape some up.
