Pot of Gold is a 90 percent Indica whose heritage includes the well known landrace strain that hails from Afghanistan called Hindu Kush. Producing a powerful but typical Indica high that can include laziness and euphoria, this strain carries the usual negative side effects. An excellent strain for managing chronic pain, Pot of Gold was chosen as one of two from a total of more than 500 different experimental strains. Designed by the Flying Dutchmen Seeds the strain was chosen for it’s sparkling buds, small stature and rather large yields. The pure Indica Hindu Kush mother and the Skunk #1 father arrived in Holland back in 1985 from California.
Requiring between eight and ten weeks to finish flowering, Pot of Gold can be grown outdoors but it’s three foot height makes it perfect for an indoor set up. The strain prefers to be grown organically in soil. Carrying an average of 15% THC the strain can produce up to 150 grams per plant. The strain’s resinous buds and socially upbeat high make it a strain ideal for hashish. Pot of Gold was crowned the champion of the 1998 High Times Cup by the celebrity judges for it’s potency and has continued to win various awards since. Users should beware as the couch-lock of this strain may completely overwhelm some users for over two hours.
