Strain of the Week: Golden Goat

Golden Goat

Strain Highlights

Golden Goat was created by accident in Topeka, Kansas, when a male Hawaiian-Romulan pollinated Mr. Dank’s Island Sweet Skunk mother. The strain is often light green and pink in color, which is indicative of its Hawaiian sativa side. The scent is described as being a combination of sweet, sour, and spicy, with a tropical fruit flavor. Effects are strong and felt from head to toe, lasting about 1-2 hours. Flowering time is 9-11 weeks, with a golden appearance closer to harvest. This sativa-dominant hybrid has a THC level of up to 23% and a CBD of 1.07%.

5 Cannabis Breeders Who Have Changed the World of Modern Cannabis

Evidence suggests that cannabis cultivation dates as far back as 12,000 years, making it one of the oldest farmed crops. Since then, cannabis genetics have been selected and bred to better serve the needs of different human populations. The last 50 years has seen a dramatic leap in quality, potency, and diversity of cannabis that can be directly attributed to breeders. Here are five of my personal favorite cannabis breeders who have brought legendary genetics to market.

TGA Genetics

Popular Strains: Agent Orange, Chernobyl, Jack the Ripper, Qrazy Train, Querkle, Jesus OG, Ace of Spades

Subcool of TGA Genetics initially took an interest in breeding as a grower and consumer who wasn’t satisfied with what was available to him. After decades of breeding alongside his partner MzJill, Subcool has created a long line of potent, flavorful, high-yielding strains. His genetics are found in gardens up and down the West Coast.

Dedicated to his work, Subcool takes time to thoroughly explore his strains before making them available to the masses. New genetics are sent out to a community of farmers for testing before they are publicly released. Subcool has a knack for selecting quality father stock, which has been key to his success with breeding strains. He recently received the High Times lifetime achievement award for his work in cannabis. Continue reading “5 Cannabis Breeders Who Have Changed the World of Modern Cannabis”

Here’s How Much Exercise You Need Per Week To Live Longer

It’s official: If you want a longer life, you need to get moving.

A recent study published in the journal The Lancet found that the minimum amount of exercise you need to increase your longevity is approximately 150 minutes per week. The research also showed that everyday activities ― like cleaning your room and biking to work ― are just as beneficial as organized workouts when it comes to meeting that goal.

A team of researchers surveyed people between ages 35 and 70 about their physical activity in order to reach the results. Between 2003 and 2010, more than 140,000 participants in 17 countries completed a one-time questionnaire about how many minutes they had spent being active in the past week. Researchers then checked in with participants on the state of their health for about six to nine years after they took the survey.

Cannabis Oil Distillate: A Different Kind of Concentrate

A drop of distillate sits perched on the edge of a dabbing tool. Taut like a raindrop, this viscus and opaque orb glimmers as it rests within the concave folds of titanium. Encased within this golden drop of goodness is a semi-translucent, 99% pure decarboxylated and distilled tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) sap. Dollar for dollar, this morsel of oil is worth more by weight than just about any other consumable substance on the market, and for good reason: Cannabis oil distillates are arguably the future of cannabis concentrates.

With unmatched purity and sheer versatility, distillate oils provide a clean and potent product with limitless application potential. However, understanding the refinement process by which distillates are made can be difficult, as many of the methodologies are proprietary and still in R&D or even patent-pending phases. Follow along as we review the inside scoop on how these super potent oils are processed, how easy they are to both consume and infuse with, as well as their potential in offering solutions in various niche markets within the burgeoning cannabis concentrate industry.
