Golosa Strain Review

You know, the Golosa strain is one of the more delicious strains out there. It has a sweet and fruity aroma, and when you taste it you get hints of punchy pineapple and refreshing mint, and even a little coffee, too. 

And it’s very much a potent strain, so a little goes a long way. It can be grown both outdoors or indoors, and can be grown in a relatively quick flowering time of as little as 8 to 9 weeks.

And you should be met with very issues while it’s growing because it is very hardy and very resistant to mold and pests.

And it’s a strain that has won awards. Please read on for the full low down.

Potency

The Golosa strain is 80% indica and 20% sativa, and this combination produces a very high potency indeed, coming in at a whopping 26% in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

And what this means in more general terms is that it’s extremely potent, and anyone who wants to use it to get high will only need trace amounts, and they’ll be soaring high as a kite.

What Is The Golosa Strain?

How Was The Golosa Strain Developed?

The Golosa strain is a relatively recent one, developed as recently as 2018. It is derived from a hybrid plant that is the result of crossing blueberry, grapefruit, and Bay 11.

It was developed by breeder Delicious Seeds, and is grown by Ancient Roots, Ohio. 

Taste

Golosa seeds are truly delicious, with a sharp and potent grapefruit and green mango taste. But strangely enough it also manages to incorporate hints of other flavors as well, including the likes of peppermint, coffee and licorice.

Odor and flavor

The other thing that’s strange about this strain is how the odor is not a simple replicator of the taste. And rather than having a grapefruit and mango scent, you instead get one that’s more like green tea and thyme, much more herbal than fruity.

And when you really take in the scent it’s as though you are transported to a fresh, heavily wooded place, full of vegetation,

Physical appearance

What’s really striking about the Golosa strain is it’s very dark colors, which become particularly prominent towards the end of its 60-day cycle, with an intense jet-black appearance when it is fully flowered. Very pretty indeed. 

Growing Info

One of the great things about the Golosa strain is just how easy it is to grow. They can be grown both outdoors and indoors. So long as the climate is both cold and dry.

The Golosa strain is a medium-sized plant with minimal branching. Once it starts to grow, it will finish flowering in about 55 to 60 days so, give or take. Not too long at all, and certainly well worth the wait.

Those who like to grow their cannabis indoors will see 550 g/m² from their harvest, whereas outdoor growers on the other hand can expect to yield as much as 1500 grams per plant. Even ones that don’t grow quite as big still produce a very decent yield.

The best time to harvest them would be in mid-September, and you can tell when they’re ready to be harvested, because the flowers start to become incredibly dark. It looks super cool.

One of the great things about this strain is that it’s highly resistant to such nuisances as mold and fungus, and all kinds of bugs and pests that like to eat cannabis plants. As the strain grows, it’s pretty much unaffected by such things. Very hardy and robust indeed.

Effects

The experience of taking the Golosa strain is really not to be missed. It is a very powerful narcotic, and you will begin to feel very sedated and relaxed before you know it.

It will give you a full body buzz, calming every single nerve in the body.

If you have anything that you need to get on with urgently, it is strongly recommended that you complete such tasks first before taking any Golosa, as you are likely to feel too sedated to do so once you have taken it. 

Because of the Golosa strain’s very high potency, at 26% THC, you can expect to get very high very quickly, and you will only need trace amounts. You could argue that this makes it better value for money. 

Side Effects

As you might have come to expect, due to the strain’s high potency of 26% THC, this strain does have a few negative side effects…

Due to the high potency of this strain, both casual smokers and frequent smokers are vulnerable to coming down with anxiety and paranoia.

Those who have smoked have often also complained of a dry mouth and dry eyes.

Medical appointments

The Golosa strain is thought to have high medicinal value. The healing power of this strain can greatly help those with psychological afflictions such as anxiety, depression, and even anorexia nervosa. 

But the medicinal benefits of the Golosa strain are not limited to its psychological effects, reducing anxiety and lifting depression. It can also be used to treat a wide array of physical symptoms. And these can include such things as muscle spasms, acute pain, and inflammation.

But what is particularly surprising about this strain’s medicinal properties is that despite its strong sedative effects, some users have found that it can help to ease fatigue.

Similar Strains

As you might expect, the species of cannabis plants that are the most similar to the Golosa strain are the ones that this hybrid plant is derived from. In case you missed it earlier, it bears repeating here. The parent plants include grapefruit, blueberry, and Bay11.

On a more general level, the Golosa strain is Indica dominant, so it has much in common with other Indica dominant strains.

Strain Cannabinoids

The Golosa (DS36) strain has particularly high levels of active compounds, and can often generate samples that have as much as 26% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). So, if you do decide to take it, we recommend proceeding with caution.
