24K Gold (24 Karat Gold), also known as Kosher Tangie is an exotic, greatly coveted hybrid strain. Originally farmed by the notorious and highly respected team over at DNA Genetics, 24K Gold was cultivated as a result of crossing Kosher Kush and Tangie, two renowned award-winning strains. 24K Gold is one of DNA Genetics most unique stand-out phenotypes, and is like no other strain they have ever created. Over time, this strain has become prominent for its peculiar sweet citrus-like essence and taste.
Slightly leaning more towards being indica-dominant, 24K Gold is 60% indica and 40% sativa but despite that, it is still a well-balanced strain. With THC concentrations ranging from 18% to 24%, 24K Gold is a heavily intoxicating strain that is known for its refreshing and uplifting qualities. After consumption, the high of this strain is quick-acting and almost instantaneously noticed, providing users with soothing rapid-relief from their ailments. This award-winning mash-up combines the unique calming sensation of Kosher Kush and the unforgettable, distinctly sour and citrus-like aroma of Tangie to create a truly astonishing phenotype. 24K Gold is prized for its astounding ability to invigorate and de-stress. Great for either day-time or night-time, 24K Gold is characterized by its euphoric and uplifting nature. This strain is best used in conjunction with the treatment of certain ailments such as stress, depression, lack of appetite, moderate pain and fatigue.
With a name like 24K Gold, the standards are set very high. Large, cone-shaped buds are identified by the boundless amounts of aesthetically pleasing features. Dazzling fluorescent-green flowers are blanketed in a sticky, resinous layer of THC trichomes that shine as bright as real gold. Taking the best from its Tangie lineage, this strain wreaks of fresh citrus rinds and a sour, pungent diesel-like aroma and an exceptional taste that matches.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Barack Obama once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.
|BEST FOR NIGHT-TIME USAGE||BEST FOR DAY-TIME USAGE|
In such a growing and experimental industry, science has made it possible for the creation of new strains to meet the unique demand of consumers. Hybrid strains are created when geneticists or growers cross-breed pure indica strains, sativa strains or other hybrid strains together to create a new plant, and they can lean towards either being indica dominant, sativa dominant or an equal 50/50 balance of its parentage. What is different about hybrid plants compared to indicas or sativas is that the range of effects are endless. Hybrid strains are very complex and can be bred to contain both sativa and indica characteristics, making them great for those looking for the best of both worlds, in a sense.
