All About 24k Gold Weed Strain
The 24k Gold (either 24 karat Gold or Kosher Tangie) strain is different from regular weed types, and it’s clear by the name. It has a potent THC content of 19-23% and a CBD content of only 0.75-1.07% along with a terpene profile dominated by bisabolol, carene, and valencene. It was developed by crossing two flavorful strains: Kosher Kush and the award-winning Tangie. The strain is created by DNA Genetics from the Netherlands and has got its name due to its frosted appearance with gold trichomes.
This mix is a balanced strain that caters to both types of people who like Indica- and Sativa-dominant kush. The hybrid leans slightly towards Indica, making it a little more dominant than Sativa (60/40 ratio). In 2018, it won 3rd place at the Milano Secret Cup.
