Why is the Green Goblin Strain So Popular?
By Taylor Engle
The Green Goblin strain creatively combines genetics from two legendary cultivars: Northern Lights and Skunk #1. Some people believe that it is a renamed version of the Green Crack strain. With a potent and powerful reputation, the Green Goblin is a top choice for experienced cannabis connoisseurs – and a decidedly bold move for newbies.
What is the Green Goblin Strain?
Green Goblin is known for its strong, pungent aroma. It has a distinctly diesel smell, with a hint of citrus and a lingering sweetness. The strain’s buds are very dense and coated with a thick layer of trichomes, which results in a powerful and intense high (THC levels range from 20-25 percent).
It is considered a sativa-dominant cultivar, which means it’s a pretty great choice for a variety of conditions or situations. Green Goblin’s effects are uplifting and energizing: ideal for a daytime smoke session.
Benefits of Green Goblin
Green Goblin is known for its powerful effects, which, again, make it a prime option for experienced consumers.
The strain is also a top choice for medical cannabis patients because of its strong pain-relieving properties. It’s also often utilized to help with a variety of conditions, like:
● Chronic pain
People respond differently to cannabis strains due to our individual endocannabinoid systems, so if you do get a hold of some Green Goblin, you’ll want to experiment with varying dosage levels and situations to understand how it might work best for you.
Green Goblin Growing Tips
The Green Goblin strain is relatively easy to grow, whether you opt for indoors or outdoors. Its fast flowering time is around 7-8 weeks, and it tends to be quite resistant to pests and disease – perfect for the novice grower.
Indoor growers know how important it is to ensure that plants receive enough light. Green Goblin thrives in well-lit environments, and can even tolerate some direct sunlight.
It’s also essential to make sure your plants are well-fed. This strain can be quite nutrient-hungry, so you’ll want to keep a close eye on its nutrient intake to ensure it stays happy, healthy, and well.
Green Goblin Effects
The cultivar is a powerful one. Its sativa effects leave one with a high that is both energizing and uplifting. This makes it a great choice for those looking for a daytime, productive smoke session, as it won't leave you feeling overly sedated or couch-locked.
Green Goblin is also known for its strong pain-relieving properties, which is why medical patients tend to go for it so often.
Finally, this strain is known to have strong euphoric effects: a perfect option for those looking to enhance their creativity and focus throughout the day.
How to Use Green Goblin
Most consumers prefer to enjoy Green Goblin with a vaporizer or pipe. It typically produces a lot of dense, heady smoke, so it is important to ensure that your device is well-ventilated.
Don’t be afraid to take your time when smoking this strain: it can be intense and overwhelming if you take too much at once (especially if you’re a brand new consumer).
Green Goblin Strain Medical Uses
This strain is a popular choice for medical marijuana patients because of its pain-relieving properties, but it’s also known for having strong anti-anxiety and antidepressant effects.
It may be able to soothe the effects of depression, anxiety, or stress, which is great for anyone looking for an all-natural way to manage their mental health.
Please keep in mind this information is largely anecdotal and should not be taken as medical advice.
Potential Side Effects of Green Goblin
Like any cannabis strain, Green Goblin can have potential unsavory side effects, like dry mouth or dry eyes, so be sure to drink plenty of water!
Don’t forget to keep its high potency in mind as well: go low, go slow, and do what you can to avoid overwhelming yourself with its powerful effects.
