About Himalayan Gold
The Himalayas are known for more than just Everest; in fact, they are home to numerous cannabis strains adored the world over. With THC levels at 25% on average and CBD content ranging between 1% and 2%, Himalayan Gold offers users an exceptional combination of head and body engagement. This plant produces incredibly large, fluffy buds which are dark green and brown in color with a palette chalk full of citrus fruit aromas and flavors. This lemony bubblegum flavored bud hits on all of the senses with its spicy notes and gorgeous coloring. It’s soft to the touch and if you listen closely, you can actually hear your heart breaking from its perfection.
Himalayan Gold will take your mind on an energizing and creative journey through the skies high above mountain peaks while keeping your body grounded and relaxed. While the sativa effects are up there, users can expect more of a cerebral flighty high rather than a strong body buzz, so expect to be more fluid than rooted. There’s no chance of couch lock here, as these long-lasting effects hit in slow waves that come throughout the day, making this a perfect wake and bake bud.
Users love this strain because of its universal applications. Due to its mood-boosting effects, it’s great for treatment of depression, stress, bipolar, and other mood disorders. As it is a stimulant people also find great relief from constipation, nausea, and lack of appetite. Some have even used this strain as an aphrodisiac. Other more common uses are for immediate relief of pain, inflammation, and hypertension. It is not recommended for the treatment of insomnia or anxiety as it is known to give users burst of energy through the high.
When grown outdoors Himalayan Gold is known to reach up to 8 feet tall and gives harvesters an above average yield, while indoors the plants remain under 5 feet and produce a slightly smaller bunch. Growers love the spicy, chocolate fragrance the plant emits with some even placing their outdoor plants close to windows for the scent.
No need for a vaporizer as this strain is a smooth smoke with robust flavors and aromas you’d like to bottle and wear like cologne. The happy and heady high and light body tingle give this West Asian breed a uniquely bold high without weighing you down. Because of its relatively subtle body effects and its mellow inhale, Himalayan Gold is an ideal bud for new users.
