Created in Topeka, Kansas by a grower known as “MrDank”, Golden Goat was brought to Colorado right as the medical cannabis scene began to develop, and made its way into a number of the first dispensaries in the state. Since then, it has become one of Colorado’s signature strains, known for its tantalizing lemon-grenadine aroma and flavor as well as its complex Sativa-dominant effects package. It was originally named after the Golden Goat Recycling plant in Topeka, more speficically the smell of a thousand different types of soda syrup fermenting in the hot sun — that sweet and funky quality comes through in a well-grown Goat. A fabulous medical variety, it has shown benefits with MS, RSD, depression, fatigue, and migraines.
The strain was created in Topeka, Kansas largely by accident when a male Hawaiian-Romulan pollinated MrDank’s freak Island Sweet Skunk mother. The best plant of the resulting seeds was named “Golden Goat” after the smell of Golden Goat Recycling machines in the dead of summer, when all the soda syrup smells would mingle in the hot sun.
Its light green and pink coloration recall its Hawaiian Sativa side while the aroma calls upon the ISS mother most directly
Incredibly sweet mentholated lemon zest and cherry grenadine smell that brings to mind both the ISS and Hawaiian sides of the lineage
Exactly like the smell, it has a complex mentholated sweet-sour-spicy tropical fruit flavor that lingers on the palate and perfumes the room with a spicy, incense-heavy Haze-like smoke
This strain exhibits heavy, potent Sativa effects that can be a little much for the anxiety-prone at times, with a racing heart, buzzing body, and near-frenzied thought patterns. For those who like racier Sativas, it will provide a wonderful creative and social boost, seemingly making it impossible to sit down at times. It’s a strain that works best on a sunny day with friends rather than a night home alone. The Romulan element adds a quality pain reduction and muscle tension relief element that seems to kick in most strongly later in the duration, making the body more able to keep up with the brain’s demands.
Takes after the Hawaiian Sativa side of the family structure-wise, growing tall and consuming a lot of root space in ideal conditions. It’s a branchy plant that grows best untopped, but liked judicious pruning of lower lateral stems to encourage top growth. The wispy structure fills out late in harvest, taking on a golden appearance as it gets closer to finish.

One of legendary breeder Soma’s most varied and geographically-diverse strains, Lavender strain (formerly known as Soma #10) is named for its common finishing color and also for its unique flowery-spice scent that brings to mind fragrant charas hashish.

Chem 4 OG, or Chemdawg 4 OG, is an indica dominant strain bred using Cali Connection’s SVF OG Kush and ChemDawg 4. The dense, green buds are covered in a thick layer of trichomes with THC levels that reach as high as 20%. The indica dominance will provide a full body high great for relaxing and increasing appetite. The mysterious ChemDawg genetics provides uplifting, energetic effects that are great for stress, depression, and fatigue.
The CandyLand strain, a gold medalist of the 2012 KushCon, is a sativa-dominant hybrid bred from Granddaddy Purple and Bay Platinum Cookies. Golden hairs weave through Candyland’s thick coat of sugar-like trichomes and highlight the compact, camouflage-colored buds. This strain grows well indoors and out, and patients turn to Candyland to relieve pain, muscle tension, and sour moods.

The Alien OG strain is a cross of Tahoe OG and Alien Kush. As one of the most potent strains available, this indica-dominant hybrid has tested as high as 28% THC. Alien OG kush has the typical lemon-pine “OG” smell and flavor, and an intense high that combines heavy indica body effects and a psychedelic cerebral buzz. Beginners and novices, be sure to take it slow with this heavy-hitter.
OG Kush makes up the genetic backbone of West Coast cannabis varieties, but in spite of its ubiquity, its genetic origins remain a mystery. Popular myth maintains that Chemdawg and Hindu Kush parented OG Kush, passing on the distinct “kush” bud structure we see in many strains today. However, we can’t be sure because OG Kush first came from bag seed in the early 90s. There are many different phenotypes of OG Kush, some of which include Tahoe OG, SFV OG, and Alpha OG. OG Kush is cherished for its ability to crush stress under the weight of its heavy euphoria. It carries an earthy pine and sour lemon scent with woody undertones, an aroma that has become the signature of OG Kush varieties and descendants. With OG Kush, patients most commonly cite improvements in migraines, ADD/ADHD, and stress disorders.
Mother’s Milk strain, brought into existence by Sensi Seeds, is a 70% sativa-dominant strain with heavy Haze genetics. This Jack Herer cousin typically forms spear-shaped buds that carry more weight and density than your archetypal sativa. Its aroma is sweet and tangy with earthy undertones that provide a smooth, complex flavor profile.
Combining the heavy Indica strain, The White with the strong Sativa strain Cinderella 99 yields the amazing hybrid known as White 99. This strain yields bright green buds with yellowish-orange hairs that look as though they were sprinkled with sugar. White 99 has a fresh, almost tropical aroma that is followed by a sweet citrus flavor that many describe as a Kush aftertaste. Strain connoisseurs that like both Indicas and Sativas will have a hard time passing up White 99.
Lemon Kush is an effective hybrid strain with a 50:50 sativa/indica ratio with 26% THC content. It is actually a blend of Afghani Kush and Lemon G with a potent lemon flavor of its own. Its taste can be credited to the high amounts of Limonene found within the strain. But if you do plan to get your hands on Lemon Kush strain, it would be wise to buy some that is organically grown.
The Blue Dream strain is one of cannabis’ most popular Sativa-dominant hybrids, first coming onto the scene in Northern California, then exploding nationwide as the proliferation of medical cannabis increased. The strain is a perfect example of a Sativa-Indica fusion — combining a selected Santa Cruz Haze mother with a DJ Short’s Blueberry F4 male made this a Sativa-dominant plant, but with the most desirable traits of the Blueberry father intact, including its sweet aroma and large, dense nug structure.
Strawberry Kush is sweet, strong and truly well-rounded. This strain certainly justifies its lineage and contains a musky artificial strawberry taste with a THC content of up to 23 percent. It is essentially found as a cross between the bitter OG Kush and the sugary Strawberry Cough and is mostly strong but not overwhelming.
