24K Gold

24K Gold, sometimes shortened to 24k or 24K, is a potent hybrid marijuana strain (cultivar) that is indica dominant (60%) with some sativa heritage (40%). Due to its high THC content of approximately 20%, 24K Gold produces powerful psychoactive effects, even for more experienced users. 24K Gold is known for its sweet, citrus flavor and euphoric, relaxing effects and may be useful for managing stress, anxiety, and depression.

High-profile DNA Genetics bred 24K Gold in Amsterdam. It was created by crossing the award-winning Kosher Kush and Tangie strains. Bringing the mouth-watering flavors of its Tangie parent, this strain has a sweet, fruity aroma that pairs with an even better high.

Users report that the euphoric high kicks in faster than most indica strains but eventually tapers down for relaxation.

Whether that is a buzzy painting or music playlist, chances are you will be able to feel their emotions.

Users highly recommend this strain due to its euphoric and fun side. The rest of the experience mellows into deep relaxation and calm. Take too much, and 24K Gold’s effects may overwhelm you. Because it can induce this state, it is generally recommended to be used at night.

Growing

growing strains

Breeders DNA Genetics has seeds available online if you want to grow your own plant. However, it is quite a tricky plant to grow if you haven’t had much experience.

24K Gold loves being outside in warm, sunny, semi-humid weather and doesn’t tend to lend itself well to indoor environments.

Height

24K Gold looks like a sativa species plant, growing very tall and dense. 24K Gold can grow as tall as 80 inches, and experts recommend pruning the plant in the earlier stages to reduce the heights it can reach if grown indoors. This can also help with light exposure and air circulation.

Humidity and Temperature

24K Gold thrives in outdoor semi-humid environments, which is why it isn’t often grown indoors.

Flowering

Flowering should occur at around 10 weeks, with harvesting not long after. 24K Gold’s yield tends to be moderate, but taking care of it should be a little more rewarding.
