24K Gold Strain Review
Many believe that not all that glitters is golden, but this strain shines just as bright as 24 K Gold. Packed with a sunny aura, this equally invigorating and relaxing high will have anyone taking a hit off luxury.
Also known as Kosher Tangie, this dominantly Indica strain is award-winning for a reason.
The addition of champion sativa Tangie brings an energizing twist to the gene pool, and balances an excited yet focused buzz. However, its winning factor would have to be the refreshing fruitiness it adds to the palate.
Meanwhile, legendary Kosher Kush complements it with a numbing effect that is reminiscent of the heavily classic qualities of Kush. Of course, that also spills over to its flavor profile as it brings an earthy essence at the base.

Odor and Flavors
As its moniker suggests, this strain has a lot to offer, even in its tangy appeal. It permeates a bright aroma that blends in a refreshing mix of pulpy fruits – from oranges, tangerines and even some sour punch from lemon.
Hints of skunkiness add a pungency that makes the overall palate closer to cannabis rather than a piece of candy. Despite that, it’s still tempting to pop a few of these buds in the mouth. Its flavors are just as invigorating as the smoke is light and fruity. Upon inhaling, a sweet and citrusy essence greets the tongue, but exhaling it leaves a rather earthy aftertaste.
While the buds are not exactly as pure as a 24k, it certainly carries its weight in its heavy-hitting high. Those who feel weighed down after a long day should expect a complete turnaround as it kicks off a happy mood, replacing the blues with a light, golden air.
Such a sensation is complemented by a sharpening of perception, amplifying sights and sounds. This builds a whole new level of enjoyment in leisure pastimes like listening to atmospheric playlists or binging on visually stimulating films.
On higher doses, users may experience a sense of time dilation and find themselves lost in a trippy reverie. However, taking just the right amount will garner enough focus to spark lucid conversations and creative freedom.
This low-key giddiness gives a Sativa impression, but soon enough users will find out why this is smoked best as an after-work treat.
The heaviness that is spreading from head-to-toe makes it rather difficult to execute tasks, especially once the physical sedation completely takes hold. As the high wears on, this relaxation can slide into a full on couch-lock that leave users lazily content for hours.
As with the case of many cannabis variants, the two most commonly reported reactions are cottonmouth and dry eyes. These are minor discomforts that can be alleviated by simply preparing refreshments beforehand, but one should note that the thirst may not be completely quenched.
Meanwhile, its potency makes it highly possible for beginners to give in to its strong effects. Dizziness and paranoia can manifest, hindering users from fully enjoying the strain’s potential. As such, simply start with low dosages to keep it the effects manageable.
Medical Use and Benefits
For medical users, the strain’s balanced nature makes it a truly versatile herb to have. Indeed, its ability to ease a variety of ailments makes 24K Gold rich in its restorative talents despite its low CBD content.

Dark thoughts are overturned by free-flowing positive vibes, and there won’t be any space left for chronic stress to squeeze itself in. With a relaxed mind, winding down after work is a guaranteed success.
Meanwhile, a THC of up to 24% produces a powerful pain-killing quality, one that can effectively soothe every day pains such as back aches, joint aches, headaches, migraines, muscle spasms, cramps and other symptoms of inflammation.
Growing 24K Gold
Many prospective growers will find it relatively easy to get a hold of the seeds at is made available for sale online. However, considering the actual process, this plant may require some expert hands for it to flourish properly.
For one, it can grow a rather tall height of 200 cm, making it a challenge to grow indoors. Pruning and cutting during the early vegetative stage not only keeps it at a manageable in tight spaces, but also encourage bud growth as well as proper ventilation of airflow. This makes the Screen of Green (SCROG) ideal to use.
On that note, it takes about 9 to 10 weeks of flowering time before producing a satisfactory yield of 450 grams per square meter.
Meanwhile, taking it outdoors would probably be the easiest route. It has a natural resistance to common molds and mildews, so there is a chance to survive humid places. That is not advised though as the plant thrives better under a balmy Mediterranean climate.
Moreover, harvest time should be ready by late October with an average yield of 600 grams per plant.
