Case: Golden Goat (flower)
File Date: 05/05/2017
Case No: 0110
Officer Downey here. I would like to sincerely thank all of you devil's vine worshipers out there who support my site! Without interested folks like yourselves, I would not be posting review number 110 and my site would not exist. Sure, I could monetize this site - sell ads, find sponsors, etc. - but I have no desire to do any of that. My only goal is to provide honest, accurate information and education to the best of my abilities, with a little humor (and tunes) mixed in along the way.
Type: Sativa-dominant Hybrid (approx. 65%/35%)
Genotype: Golden Goat = Island Sweet Skunk X [ Hawaiian X Romulan ]
ISS = Skunk #1 pheno X Sweet Skunk Romulan = White Rhino X Sativa N.A.
The origins: Hawaiian/Romulan male crossed with Mr. Dank’s Island Sweet Skunk mother. Originated in Topeka, Kansas, it was an accidental pollination that led to the final genetics of this strain. Supposedly named after a Kansas recycling company.
Cultivator: Green Thumb Industries (GTI)
Purchased On: 03/23/2017

Note on Packaging: The product’s resealable, ziplock pouch seemed to do a very effective job at retaining the freshness of the flowers.
Net Weight: 3.54g
Purchase Price: $60.60, tax included
NOTE: I do not identify dispensaries in my reviews. However, if you want to know the shop that's offering this pricing, I will provide it to anyone who requests it.
Delivery Method(s) Used: clean, glass pipe
Cannabinoids from Sample: THCa 23.34%; THC .95%; CBDa .01%; CBD .01% (ACT Labs)
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.
Phenotype Profile: An abundance of long, twisting orange pistils crawl all over these glistening, neon green buds like ivy.
Bud Density: 4 [1-5]
Terpene Profile: I requested the lab reports many weeks ago from which I pull the specific terpenes and their levels but I did not heard back from GTI so I cannot provide them for this review.
Golden Goat has a very distinct set of terps that I personally love. The intact buds smelled intensely of mostly dank, pungent Haze-like qualities with a pungency just on the other side of rancid. Once ground, this sample burst of bright, intense aromas of sour grapefruit, citrus, melon & skunk pungency and sweetness with notes of pine. This sample was an aromatic rainbow of wonderful dankness. When smoked, this bud tasted fruity, sweet and earthy. Some find the odors and flavors of Golden Goat to be off-putting, while others, like me, love them.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page.
Effects: The effects are a sustained, potent and mostly cerebral experience combined with a mild body high in the background. This is some powerful stuff with a strong headiness and some energy. The experienced flower lovers will covet this strain. First-timers should proceed with caution; potential for some raciness and anxiety at higher doses.
Duration of Effects: 2+ hours
May Help With: Helped with mood and fatigue. May also help with stress, depression, nausea, ADD/ADHD, mental & creative focus, mild body and/or nerve pain (and more)
This was a perfectly cultivated, dried, trimmed and cured example of Golden Goat that was also extremely fresh.

And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
