Colombian Gold is a 100% pure sativa strain that is a classic Landrace strain from Santa Marta, Columbia. The THC level of Colombian Gold varies wildly based on where and how it’s bred, but it usually falls within a moderate range, indicating that it is between 15-20% or so. Upon the onset of the high that comes with Colorado Bubba, you’ll be hit with mental clarity that leaves you completely focused and happily uplifted. This feeling is powerful but not overwhelming, and does not come with the typical paranoia or anxiety that accompanies many heavy sativa strains. Rather, you’ll feel giddy and giggly with energy and motivation to spare! Because of these potent sativa effects, Columbian Gold is said to be ideal for treating patients suffering from conditions such as muscle spasms, chronic pain, ADD/ADHD, and depression. Colombian Gold buds have arrowhead-shaped dense minty green nugs with a spattering of fine fiery orange hairs and a thick layer of frosty chunky trichomes and sticky sweet resin. Colombian Gold nugs have an infamous classic aroma of sweet lemon skunk and an equally delicious taste of sweet lemony skunk with a hint of tangy lime upon exhale.
Visually, all shatters may appear to have the same consistency, but the physical texture of individual products can vary from extremely brittle to a taffy-like snap-and-pull quality. This inconsistency gives some insight into an individual product’s cannabinoid profile.
Specifically, shatter that’s higher in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) will tend to be sappier than a product with a higher level of tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA), which will be much more brittle by comparison. At room temperature, THC is a sappy oil, giving shatter with a high THC content a more viscous consistency, whereas THCA is solid at room temperature, yielding a fragile concentrate that’s easier to break apart.
