Santa Marta Colombian Cannabis Strain
Classic landrace Sativa strain “Colombian Gold,” also called “Santa Marta Colombian Gold” and simply “Santa Marta,” can be traced back to the Santa Marta mountains in Colombia. The buds are soft and covered in crystals, and they have a skunky, sweet aroma with hints of lemon and lime. This native Sativa is a parent strain for the ubiquitous Skunk #1 hybrid. Colombian Gold is an excellent strain for first-time users or individuals who need to maintain their attention and energy while medicating.
Extremely potent for a landrace cannabis strain, Santa Marta Colombian Gold can reach up to 20% THC. It Thrives in warm climates with extended growing seasons, such as those in California and Hawaii. It can also be grown inside; you should allow for a longer flowering time.
Growing Santa Marta Colombian Seeds
Sativa-dominant (75/25) strain Santa Marta was created by crossing a pure Sativa from Colombia with an Indica cut. Santa Marta Colombian Gold, bred from a landrace strain, can thrive in the warm conditions of the mountainous, arid regions where it was first developed. Flowering can occur as late as 11 weeks into the growth cycle. Patient growers will be rewarded with 400 g/m2 indoors and 700 g per plant outside a cluster of orange-green buds on a modest plant thanks to this strain’s lengthy genetic lineage. The plants produce an abundance of leaves, but the leaves are less tightly clustered than you’re probably used to seeing. The long, thin buds sprout amongst the resinous, almost-yellow trichomes that cover the pale green leaves. Their odor is earthy skunk mixed with pine and a touch of lime, even when they are buried.
Santa Marta Colombian Weed Flavors and Effects
During the early stages of the cannabis craze in the United States, this strain quickly rose from landrace status to that of a worldwide cultivar thanks to its high THC content (up to 20%) and pleasant effect. Its main benefits are a steady stream of positive mental states, including a sense of inner peace and sharp mental acuity. The strain has the potential to provide relief from stress, despair, and anxiety by inducing feelings of euphoria, increased appetite, and a general sense of calm.
Santa Marta Colombian Gold is a great choice for those hard days of work when a little more concentration, relaxation, and drive would be greatly needed. Although this version isn’t as potent as it previously was, its widespread adoption suggests it still packs a punch. Santa Marta continues to be deserving of its fame.
