Colombian Gold

Sativa Dominant Hybrid 75% Sativa / 25% Indica

THC: 19%

Colombian Gold is some seriously old-school marijuana. A close relative of the even more famous Acapulco Gold, this strain was born in the Santa Marta mountains of Colombia and exploded across the United States in the 1960s. Its popularity has since faded dramatically, but it remains an effective tool for treating muscle spasms and chronic pain. THC levels in this strain reportedly test above 19%, so it's a relatively potent choice for patients seeking a calming, energizing, clear-headed cerebral high that can also be used to treat anxiety and depression. CBD levels are much harder to come by, though Colombian Gold has been used to crossbreed strains that are high in that cannabinoid. Still, without more reliable information, this strain shouldn't be used as the sole medication for conditions that respond to CBD, including seizure disorders. Colombian Gold is a near-pure sativa (sativa/indica ratio of at least 75:25), the result of an original Colombian landrace strain. It delivers a smooth but tangy tea flavor and a Skunky aroma with notes of lemon and lime. The buds are covered in visible crystals. Though well past its prime, Colombian Gold still sells relatively well in Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, and Arizona.

My parents smoked it in the 70's,and i heard about it in the early 90's when i started smoking.finally got some last week at fireleaf in OKC.Dark and light green with dark red hairs,somewhat earthy and floral notes when you break it up.pretty stoney stuff i must say.leaves a cheesy grin on my face and a fuzzy head.


been smoking since 72 and C.G was only of my fav's just the color was awesome , I have not bought some from world of seeds and got them sent to me in Canada, these babies are coming up very nice , I cannot wait to try it ,It;s been over 40 yrs and now i will once again smoke some old school , and yes most people do not even realize that almost all the weed these days came from the old school strain, Panama red , C.G Alcopolco Gold, and on and on.


Columbian is in almost every hybrid on the market today.


Vietnam ERA VET old school smoke , yet still holds up as one of the best bud , cant go wrong on this


A strain of the 70's, one I will remember for the rest of my life. An intense cerebral high Which made me laugh more than any other strain since then to now.


Was lucky enough to try again Colombian gold after smoking it 50 years ago. Was the best ever smoked back then and again today best I have smoked in 50 years of gourmet cannabis daily smoking. Outdoor grown. There is NO substitute for natural sun. The natural winds on the mountains make it so special. The quality of high is incredibly clean and brilliant. These growers been doing this for generations after generations. The flavors are exquisite


I had this in 1975 from friends at Michigan State University $25 /oz like a blonde color like a girls beautiful blonde hair...with dark or black seeds, nice nugs. I got back from Nam in1969 and that was some of the best weed on this planet. Well, when I tried this it knocked me out,quite literally and every time I smoked it the same ... I have never seen anything like it since....it would be perfect for insomnia. it was only good for sleep, in fact I haven't seen anything now like some of the good weeds of the past.


First tried this in the early 1970's. I remember it being the best Cannabis I'd ever had up to that point. My friend rolled a pinhead joint and after we smoked, we both had the most uncontrollable laughter I've ever seen. I remember it being a very strong head high that lasts a long time.


I'm growing that strain right now and it's absolutely beautiful! I got lucky to have been given some seeds of the original mother strain! Will have to let u still know how that turn out still got a couple weeks left!


I love smoking this bud♥️
