Malawi Gold is a strain from an unknown breeder, a pure Sativa. Malawi is a country in South Africa known for the fertility of cannabis. At first, they distributed Malawi marijuana (the parental Malawi Gold strain) illegally. But now, cannabis is well valued internationally for the taste and the high that suits both novice and experienced smokers. Caryophyllene gives weed a sharp, tea-like flavor. Carene is responsible for the pungent herbal notes. But myrcene, caryophyllene, and carene together create a unique sweet berry flavor. Some users have also noted lavender and peach flavors.

Basic Info

A large amount of trichomes makes marijuana very sticky and difficult to mince without a good grinder. THC levels are average 13-15%, but the number rises to 24% of the content in some cases. 

The high manifests itself immediately, covering the user with a surge of energy. Uplifting your mood promotes successful socialization, and talkativeness will only encourage it. 

However, be careful, as you will hardly be able to control your giggles! Also, marijuana consumption should be done wisely, as side effects can be a source of discomfort, including: 

  • Paranoia
  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Drowsiness
