Far from the mean giants of ancient stories, this Goliath is undoubtedly one of the gentle giants you will come across when it comes to high-yielding hemp plants. The Goliath hemp strain lives up to its name, being a colossal hemp plant that can reach up to 16 feet in height under the right conditions.
Goliath has a Christmas tree structure and conical buds of a greenish to yellow color, covered in a sticky layer of cannabinoid-filled trichomes that can go up to 15% of CBD content, less than 0.3% of THC, and reasonable amounts of CBG.
This strain has an African Sativa lineage mixed with the famous ruderalis Lowryder. Nonetheless, the Goliath hemp strain results from an extended and well-studied phenotype selection and crossing after crossing, selecting the best qualities, scents, flavors, and the highest resistance to any pest or climatic environment.
This unique, balanced hybrid industrial production hemp strain of enormous size and increased production is one of the more sought-after to make distillates. Moreover, it is the perfect choice for all those CBD lovers who want to feel the mood-boosting but clear-headed and relaxing effects of hemp flower.
The Goliath hemp strain has a mighty load of pungent citrus, fruity aromas with leanings to peach and apple, followed by earthy and chocolatey overtones with sharp peppery and diesel accents. The peculiar combination of terpenes and flavonoids in the profile of this strain is responsible for the final smell and taste that please our senses.
The dominant terpenes in the Goliath hemp strain are:
Caryophyllene: caryophyllene, or beta-caryophyllene, is one of the terpenes that you will find more commonly in a wide variety of cannabis strains. This terpene is sometimes even classified as a not-so-common cannabinoid since it plays a crucial role in the entourage effect produced by all the terpenes and the cannabinoids.
Caryophyllene binds with the CB2 receptors of our endocannabinoid system, generating analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant effects. It can help patients dealing with anxiety, depression, chronic pain and can even help control seizures.
Myrcene: myrcene has a lot to do with how our body absorbs the rest of the terpenes and cannabinoids. This terpene contributes significantly to the same synergistic effect already mentioned.
Further, myrcene provides an incredible smell of citrus fruits, reminiscent of mango with earthy and musky tones. Because of this, the food industry widely uses myrcene in a variety of additives and food flavorings.
Guaiol: unlike most terpenes that are oil-based, guaiol has a liquid structure. This rare terpene provides intense piney and woody scents with slight overtones of rose flowers. Guaiol has a full-scale of benefits, increasing the impact of cannabis in the human body and unleashing anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant effects.

Goliath Hemp Strain Genetics
The genetics of this CBD giant is nothing but the result of hard work and years of experimentation and phenotype selection to carefully select the best qualities of the African Sativa plants and the popular climate-resistant ruderalis Lowryder.
Researchers link the mood-boosting and creativity stimulation effects of the Goliath hemp strain to its predecessor, the African Sativa. This highly stimulating strain receives its name because it grows naturally as a landrace all across the African continent.
Because of this region's latitude and climate, this plant’s effects and structure are Sativa in nature, and it can contain up to 14% THC. On the Indica side of Goliath, we have an incredible Indica strain, very popular with Indica-lovers who live in colder and windier areas.
Lowryder became famous not only because it can grow under almost extreme conditions but because, antagonistic to its giant daughter Goliath, it does not usually grow more than 16 inches, reaching the category of the most miniature cannabis plants of the world.
The Goliath hemp strain can withstand cold and windy climates like no other strain and yield substantial yields of buds packed with the therapeutic power of CBD. To create a stable pest-resistant strain that suits better windy colder climates, breeders used a lengthy phenotype selection process that results in a uniform flower canopy that makes harvesting easier.
This plant can grow up to 12 feet in a Christmas tree structure and delivers very dense, fruit-smelly buds. It has the peculiarity of growing in frigid and windy climates. Breeders trialed Goliath in various sites, and it flourished everywhere it has been tested.
