G.O.A.T. is an acronym for the “greatest of all time” — and that bold claim comes close to describes G.O.A.T.’s effects and reputation. The strain was created by Scapegoat Genetics, the breeders who gave us Don Draper and Critical Kush, and is a cross between Animal Pie and the very potent ACDC. With almost equal levels of THC and CBD, G.O.A.T. makes for a strain that is both recreationally and medically useful.
G.O.A.T.’s flowers are characterized by a medium to large sized and a pronounced conical shape. These tapered buds cling together in a dense, indica-typical formation — the smell leaves curl compactly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a dark shade of olive green and are twisted through with yellow and rust colored hairs (which are actually pistils, botanical structures meant to catch pollen from flowering male plants). Finally, these superlative nugs are crowned with a frosting of trichomes, making them sticky and potent.
Luckily, G.O.A.T. does not take after strains like Hog or Dog Shit whose similarly bestial names refer to their offensive aromas. When properly cured, flowers of G.O.A.T. give off a dank, mellow scent redolent of damp earth. There’s also a sour and skunky odor lurking underneath. Grinding up these dense buds yields some herbal hints of eucalyptus and mint. When G.O.A.T. is combusted in a pipe or a joint, it gives off a smooth and easily palatable smoke. This smoke tastes herbal with traces of citrus on the exhale.
THC%: 18% – 21%
