What is the origin and genetic composition of the Gold Leaf feminized strain?
Robert Bergman likes his strains anonymous, and the feminized Gold Leaf is no exception. According to him, this strain was developed after crossing multiple strains, leaving researchers to speculate on the source. However, it is suspected that the strain is a cross between Purple Urkle and Cornbread. The result is a feminized strain comprising 60% Indica and 40% Sativa genetics. Gold Leaf packs an impressive 17-21% THC, which is relatively high.
You can identify Gold Leaf feminized cannabis by its yellow fan leaves and golden nugs. One unique feature that is rare in Indica-leaning strains but is found in this strain is that it grows up to around 180-200cm.
What are the effects of Gold Lead feminized strain?
Feminized Gold Leaf gives a near-instant hit, characterized by brain fog and cerebral rush, thanks to its Sativa properties. As the Sativa sinks in, it induces a feel-good effect and euphoria. In some cases, you might get a physical buzz.
Sativa effects subsidize, leaving the Indica with its relaxing effects to take over. The relaxation starts in the brain, wiping away negativity and bad thoughts and clearing your brain. The Indica spreads to the rest of the body in thirty minutes, leaving it heavy and bound in one spot for the next few hours.
Can the Gold Leaf feminized strain be used medically?
Yes. Gold Leaf feminized marijuana can be used to manage inflammation in arthritis and multiple sclerosis patients. Similarly, it contains pain-relieving properties, which can help suppress chronic migraine, menstrual cramps, and muscle spasms.
This feminized strain’s relaxing properties can alleviate mental disorder symptoms such as mood swings, panic attacks, and depression. Finally, insomniacs and people with low appetites can take this cannabis to alleviate the symptoms.
What does the Gold Leaf feminized strain smell and taste like?
Feminized Gold Leaf cannabis is not ideal for discreet growers due to its pungent aromas. As soon as it attains the flowering stage, it produces a strong musky aroma to announce its presence. The aroma intensifies when the buds are broken open. Upon combustion, feminized Gold Leaf buds produce a strong diesel aroma with earthy undertones.
During inhalation, the thick smoke from this strain hits your palate with skunky and earthy notes and sweet hints. On the exhale, your tongue remains with a piney and sweet aftertaste.
How to cultivate Gold Leaf feminized seeds
The feminized version of Gold Leaf is one of the easiest to grow and is highly tolerant to harsh climates, pests, and mildew. Given its height, it is advisable to grow outdoors where it can reach its optimal potential with minimal distractions.
