As happens every year, cannabis connoisseurs are actively trying to co-opt this most green of holidays for our own use. And whether you are looking for a non-alcoholic alternative to green beer or to avoid a hangover tomorrow, Patty’s Day was practically made for the Pot of Gold strain.
A Flying Dutchman Seed Company creation, Pot of Gold medalled at the 2003 High Times Cannabis Cup. A hybrid of Hindu Kush and Skunk #1, each plant produces massive yields of thick, resinous buds. The scent is full of berry notes and a slightly skunky follow. The taste borders on the sweet side, well past the green hit. Because of the sticky buds, breaking this strain up by hand is not ideal.
This indica dominant hybrid offers almost fully a body located high, effective for pain management and mild insomnia. Thanks to the heavy gravity of the Hindu Kush, expect plenty of couch-lock and even a narcotic, sedated feeling. Regardless of how you spend your St. Patrick’s Day, ending it with your own Pot of Gold will help ensure you are ready for work in the morning.
