Pot of Gold strain is a hybrid with a beautiful bud, covered with golden pistils. Flying Dutchmen Seeds cultivated the weed by crossing Hindu Kush with Skunk #1. Its THC levels reach above 20%. As a result, consumers can expect a heavy stone that leads to a sedation-like effect.

Pot of Gold cannabis is known to alleviate insomnia and stress. The physical effect is very strong, so it's best to save this weed for use before sleep. It may cause exhaustion as an after-effect for novice users.

The aroma is strong. Users describe it as very earthy and slightly sweet with a hint of cheese.

Pot of Gold marijuana is not the easiest to grow. It requires a greenhouse environment and delivers a generous yield of 2.88 oz/ft? in 8-9 weeks of flowering time. Seeds are available from Flying Dutchmen.

Pot of Gold cannabis is beautiful for its bud, but it's mostly known for its above-average potency. It has won a variety of awards, including the 1998 High Times Cup.
