Few marijuana strains are as famous for their flavor as 24K. Also known as “Kosher Tangie”, this is a hybrid cannabis genetics with slight Indica dominance (60% indica / 40% sativa) created by crossing two other famous strains: Kosher Kush X Tangie.
Its name comes from its jaw-dropping bright gold flavor and appearance, resembling 24-karat gold. It usually bears long flowers, which vary from light purple to yellow tones, and have thick, milky yellow-gold trichomes. In general, the buds of 24K are pepper-shaped, but depending on the phenotype, they can be almost spherical or even conical and shovel-shaped.
The scent of 24K Gold is sweet and reminiscent of spicy tangerines, and when you check deeper, it also has a whiff of pine and musk. The breeze is cheerful, perfect for improving anyone’s mood day or night. It hits first with a slightly calming euphoria and ends up numbing the mind like an Indica, while also bringing a sense of energy and well-being. This is a great option to enjoy shows and movies on a stoned floor.
Growing the 24K
24K grows indoor or outdoor, although outdoor growth requires a warm, semi-humid climate with constant sunlight during the day. It can grow very large, and so those who grow indoor should train their plants by pruning early in the vegetative stage. 24K has a flowering period of 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors.
Most phenotypes exhibit a sweet orange aroma from Tangie, mixed with the dark coloration of Kosher Kush, and carry a strong citrus flavor when smoked or steamed.
Anesthetizing medicinal effects of an Indica
With an average THC level ranging from 18 to 24%, 24K is used medicinally to treat conditions such as chronic stress, depression, insomnia, chronic fatigue, and inflammation. Patients can also benefit from the sedative properties of 24K, which can be an effective pain reliever and has anti-inflammatory effects that relieve daily irritations such as headaches and stomach problems.
In high enough doses, the complete and almost narcotic relaxation of this strain can lead insomniacs into a deep and restful sleep. Psychologically speaking, 24K Gold temporarily masks the symptoms of stress and depression.
Creation of DNA Genetics
Created by the makers of DNA Genetics (the same people behind Chocolope and LA Confidential), this strain is a cross between the award-winning Kosher Kush and the sativa Tangie. Besides its outstanding citrus flavor, 24K Gold impresses with the beauty of its colorful and attractive flowers.
Fortunately for home growers in countries where cannabis is legalized, DNA Genetics makes 24K seeds available for sale online. A 24K Gold is ideal for veteran fans of a good Indica who are looking for a smooth breeze with pronounced flavor. It’s a great option if you’re feeling particularly social and in the mood to exchange ideas or just hanging out by yourself.
