This bud is a literal goldmine of THC, as it reaches more than 20% of this mighty cannabinoid, making it the powerful tier of cannabis strains with similar amounts. Florida Gold is an indica-dominant hybrid from the Grow Your Own (G.Y.O.) product line by DNA Genetics.
The Florida Gold strain is a vivid, colorful bud with a variety of fresh aromas, much like what we may think of when we see Florida’s sunshine. This potent hybrid strain is obtained from crossing Florida OG x Jew Gold cut and features strong pine and lemon flavors combined with the powerful aroma of the classic OG Kush.
The buds of Florida Gold are thick and elongated and are filled with aromas and flavors of stinky citrus, diesel, spice, and pine. The strain is not as intense as other Kush buds, and could even let you go without being completely glued to the couch for your afternoon. Nevertheless, it will definitely hit you.
Florida Gold is clearly dominant in pinene and myrcene, followed by limonene and caryophyllene. Each of these terpenes is the one enabling Florida Gold’s main characteristics.
First, pinene is an aromatic compound commonly found in cannabis that is responsible for giving a scent like a forest of pine trees to Florida Gold. It can be useful for pain, inflammation, and anxiety. Then, limonene is commonly associated with fruity and citrus aromas. Probably you will think that Florida Gold smells like cleaning products and it is because of this terpene, yet you will only taste a lemony smoke. Moreover, it is believed to provide stress relief and has antidepressant properties.
Caryophyllene delivers a spicy, funky warmth to the nose, similar to cinnamon and cloves. This terpenes is the best for stress relief and reducing anxiety. Lastly, myrcene is responsible for the peppery, spicy, balsam fragrance in this strain and has therapeutic calming effects.
With its calming abilities, the high provided by the Florida Gold strain is strong; it will come first with a euphoric head buzz sitting heavy on your eyelids, then moving a super stone through your body. This allows an intense and long-lasting physical effect.
For helping to reduce anxiety as well as stress and depression, Kush strains have been noted to be extraordinary, and Florida Gold is no exception. In order to help mitigate symptoms of depression and anxiety, the cerebral boost of Florida Gold could be beneficial, while the body-high that follows can be used to treat pain and nausea.
However, be careful of its potency, since the high THC content combined with its minor sativa characteristics could cause an unpleasant head-high for inexperienced users.
