A Sativa landrace cultivar called Colombian Gold was developed in Colombia’s Santa Marta Mountains.
Colombian Gold, one of the market’s most reliable cannabis strains, developed through generations of inbreeding by local growers. Despite being less well-known than its cousin, Acapulco Gold, Colombian Gold has still made its mark on the cannabis industry. In the 1960s, Sam the Skunkman used it as one half of his Skunk #1 creation, and over the following few decades, it has been used for a variety of hybrids.
The resulting green and orange buds have an earthy, fresh pine scent that permeates every nook and cranny of the space.
Colombian Gold, a genuine landrace Sativa, grows tall, branchy plants that bloom indoors in 75–90 days. However, a grower with average experience can coax a yield of up to 600 grams per square meter in November from an outdoor garden in the Northern Hemisphere and a May harvest from an outdoor garden in the Southern Hemisphere.
