There are few things as annoying for growers as discovering that a beloved crop of female plants has been compromised by a small handful of males that have slipped through the net. To avoid this problem, you can use feminized 24K Gold seeds from Homegrown Cannabis.
Everything about Kosher Tangie is golden. From its appearance down to its effects and potency, it is nothing short of spectacular. It's no wonder that it was soon given a new, more appropriate, name: 24K Gold. This much-loved product of Homegrown Cannabis is a cross between two premium strains.
First is Kosher Kush, a two-time winner of best Indica in the High Times Cannabis Cup and overall winner in 2011. Its most instantly-recognizable characteristic is its insanely high potency. At up to 29% THC, it is one of the strongest strains in the world.
The second component is the Sativa-dominant Tangie. This hybrid, boasting a citrus and skunk aroma, is a remake of the famed Tangerine Dream. Its claim to fame derives from the superb quality of its concentrates. Within the first eight months of its release, it won all ten competitions the breeder entered.
As illustrious as these two plants' lineage is, the decision to pair Kosher Kush with Tangie is not solely due to the strains' prominence. Instead, the creation of 24K Gold is a testament to Homegrown Cannabis Co.'s desire to create new hybrids that are greater than the sum of their parts. 24K Gold is no exemption to the standard of excellence the breeders have developed over recent years.
24K Gold is a truly unique hybrid that leans towards the Indica side of the spectrum but has unusually strong cerebral effects. Like its parents, it is incredibly potent. Best of all, its seeds are now available in feminized form.
Growing 24K Gold from Feminized Seeds
24K Gold is a very easy plant to grow, and even beginners are likely to succeed the first time round. It has a remarkable growth rate, especially during the vegetative stage, and during the flowering phase it can stretch quite a bit. As such, growers will need to prune or trim regularly.
When cultivated indoors, it is always best to give this plant ample space. However, even in a crowded habitat, it adapts well. It can tolerate Low-Stress Training (LST) and is well-suited to Screen of Green (SCROG) techniques. Although the flowering period is average at 9 to 10 weeks, its yield is remarkable: growers can expect 1.8 ounces per square foot.
Outdoors, the plant should begin flowering on the 3rd to 4th week of October in a Mediterranean climate. Come harvest time, it can produce anything from 15 to 19 ounces per plant.
24K Gold is a resilient and sturdy specimen that is resistant to mold and mildew. To ensure that the plants are all female, it is wise to opt for feminized seeds from Homegrown Cannabis.
Fragrance and Flavor
24K Gold has a strong, creamy, citrus aroma with notes of orange fruit. It has a thick but smooth smoke that tastes sharp and sweet like its fragrance. Upon exhale, it leaves a fruity aftertaste with a peppery kick.
The effects of 24K Gold lean toward the Indica side, but the hit starts off with a strong euphoric high. From the outset, it promotes creative thinking and lucidity. Before long, a subtle but uplifting sensation descends on the body, and the Indica properties soon become more pronounced. It doesn't take long before tokers are glued to the couch.
Used in moderation, the cerebral effect of 24K Gold is gentle enough, but in larger doses, the psychedelic effects become more intense. Once this happens, most users end up seriously stoned in a dreamy, blissful haze.
Apart from its recreational value, 24K Gold is also popular among medicinal users. Because it uplifts the spirit and promotes a sense of general well-being, some have used it to combat general stress and mental tension
. Others have turned to this plant to help relieve symptoms of depression
and post-traumatic stress disorder.
It is also said to be a good antidote to some physical ailments, and has been used to treat back pain, joint inflammation, migraines
, and nerve-related conditions.
While 24K Gold is much-loved by recreational and medicinal users alike, there can be adverse reactions. For instance, dry mouth and eyes are the standard rather than the exemption, and some users may experience symptoms of anxiety stretching from mild to severe.
