UW Gold is an indica dominant hybrid strain with unknown parentage, although it is known to have been developed at or around the University of Washington (thus the name). With a THC level that typically hits about 20-22% on average and heavy sedative effects, UW Gold is definitely one late night treat that is great for getting to sleep or kicking back. The UW Gold high starts with a euphoric lift that doesn’t increase your energy but rather infuses you with a sense of lazy happiness that just can’t be phased. As this happiness builds and builds, your body will fall into a state of deep calm and sedation that can leave you couch-locked and immovable. Your head high will quickly become hazy and slightly stoney, eventually pulling you into sleepy and dreamy thoughts. With these lazy nighttime effects, UW Gold is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as insomnia, muscle spasms or tremors, chronic pain, and chronic stress or anxiety. This bud has a fragrance and flavor of sweet floral earth with a mild spicy herbal effect that’s released as the nugs are burned. UW Gold buds have dense fluffy spade-shaped bright neon green nugs with light amber colored hairs and trichomes.
