Golden Ticket Strain

Winning the golden ticket to Charlie’s Chocolate Factory is, for the most part, unlikely. Luckily, a strain of the same name brings the same joy the fictional place brought to many of its constituents.

Golden Ticket is a perfectly split hybrid developed by Archive Seed Bank using two legendary strains. First is Face Off OG, a bud with heavy hitting body effects worthy of melting the face off. Golden Goat was later added to enhance its terpene profile as well as intensify its cerebral effects.

One should note, however, that there is another version of Golden Ticket which is a variant of the famous Chernobyl strain from TGA Seeds. It has an entirely different set of effects, flavors, and medical benefits. For this reason, users must be wary of possibly confusing the other.

    Golden Ticket is undoubtedly among the most potent strains in the cannabis industry. Its THC levels range anywhere from 16% to 25%. However, it does not overwhelm users at the first puff. Instead, it creeps in 30 minutes after the first two to three puffs.

    During the initial onset, users experience a subtle euphoric rush that intensifies after each puff. It washes away negativity and pumps users up for a productive day ahead by uplifting the mood. However, the mental clarity also inspires a surge of creativity as thoughts flow and form freely in the mind.

    After about an hour or two, a light pressure travels from the temples down to the rest of the body. It relaxes each muscle until users feel totally calm. However, keeping it from totally locking enthusiasts to the couch is the initial mental effects.

    One of Golden Ticket’s main selling points is its fragrance. It is sweet and tangy, reminiscent of ripe lemons and limes. Balancing its fruity scent is an earthy aroma that intensifies once the buds are crushed or combusted.

    Golden Ticket tastes as good as it smells. Drawn in, it bursts in the palate with flavors of sweet lemons and lime. Enhancing it are sour undertones of skunk. On the exhale, it leaves a citric and earthy aftertaste that lingers in the mouth even after the last puff.

    Moderation and pacing must always be practiced when using a potent strain like the Golden Ticket. Otherwise, it will trigger anxiety. It is sometimes accompanied by mild dizziness and a headache. However, this is a rare occurrence.

    An unavoidable reaction to marijuana is dehydration, which manifests as dryness in the eyes and the mouth. The dry spell is usually mild and often goes away on its own after a few hours. Still, those who experience discomfort may down a few glasses of water for rehydration.

    One of the best times to use Golden Ticket is right before a meal. This is because it encourages a hearty appetite as it soothes each muscle in the stomach. At the same time, it also reinvigorates the body while soothing pain with its analgesic properties.

      As a hybrid, Golden Ticket brings out the best qualities of Sativas and Indicas. It is relatively tall and fits most growing spaces. However, aspiring growers can still top the plant early if needed. It also reacts well to growing methods like Sea of Green and Screen of Green, wherein it encourages strains to produce more budding sites and encourage better production of THC.

      Apart from its height, it is also a sturdy plant with high resistance against cold temperatures and high levels of moisture in the air. Its thick stalks and branches do not break off easily as strong gusts of wind ravage it. For this reason, many growers cultivate the strain outdoors.

      Still, there are many who prefer growing the Golden Ticket indoors for added protection against pests. Moreover, it helps aspiring growers adjust factors such as lighting, temperature, and humidity so the plant reaches its full potential. Those seeking to produce tastier buds may use soil however, hydroponic systems may also be employed for faster flowering periods.

      At the moment, Golden Ticket is sold in regular form. Because at least half the batch will be male, growers must use pre-germination techniques to encourage more females and utilize Low-Stress Training methods to keep plants from turning into hermaphrodites. During the flowering phase, it produces green buds with a yellowish tint.

      Flowering Time


      It takes between 8 to 10 weeks for Golden Ticket to fully bloom. Once ready for harvest, it produces between 12 to 14 ounces of buds per square meter.

      Golden Ticket flowers within October, from the second to the last week of October, in the northern hemisphere. It yields at least 14 ounces of buds per plant.

        1. Ryan, download and read our free grow bible. Join our support forum for real daily grow support. There are many factors as to why the smaller plant reacted as it did. Light is too intense and/or too close to the plant. too much fertilizer. Who knows. IN the support forum; I can look at your pictures and have a running topic that you can reference anytime. Join the ofrum and we will teach you how to grow successfully. BTW…Plants love light so, that isn’t it. 🙂

        2. I am growing golden ticket. It has been a slow grower. I am growing 6 diffrent strains right now and it’s the slowest of them all. I put it under the flowering light and the plant didn’t like the light at all. It’s leaves closed up and the plant started Looking teriable in general. Any pointers would be much appreciated.
