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.
Information about Golden Ticket:
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.
Golden Ticket has an impressive set of health benefits. It is mentally uplifting and, through its mood-enhancing effects, provides comfort to people with depression. In a similar manner, it relieves stress.
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.
