I recently did a seed run where I grew out three fem strains, totally new to me: Golden Goat S1 and Bebop, from Irie, and Planet of the Grapes from Ethos. This is the first of the smoke reports.

Something about me, as it relates to smoke reports:

I moved to a med state in 2016, after living in Illegal Land all my life. I was unable to grow for a couple of years before moving into my present situation. I gradually got used to dispensary weed, which noticeably increased in potency since I arrived here. Not that the top end is higher, but there are a lot more high potency selections, and I got used to hight potency (mid-20% and higher, generally speaking).

Something about growing Golden Goat S1:

This is a grow site, so you are probably reading this, considering whether to grow this stuff or not.

I popped three seeds. Two of them had a need for soil with a lower pH, like close to 6, and with my high pH tapwater (7.3, before adding pH down). I culled one, which never thrived. Of the other two, one finished in 7.5 weeks, the other took 11.5 weeks. They are both potent AF. I mention this because people need to know there is a lot of variation.

Further commentary:

This is a very powerful sativa dom, WITHOUT edginess. I think it will prove to be a general crowd-pleaser. It is well worth the pH sensitivity to grow it. I just wish I knew to watch for it, beforehand.

The scent of the short-flowering pheno is beyond belief. When she was chopped, it was pretty obvious that her scent dominated the scents in the tent. And unless you hate tropical fruit, this is a good thing.

At first I considered the long-flowering one more potent than the short-flowering one. I recently finished the last decent buds of the short flowering gal, and now I'm not so sure. She's just a little more body high than the other. I kept both cuts and now i'm leaning toward keeping the short flowerer. 53 days is hard to beat.

Either when I cut and pasted, stuff on bud structure, etc., must not have come out, or it isn't part of this template. anyway, I'd give the short flowering pheno an 8 on bud hardness and 10 on bag appeal. buds look great and the scent is intoxicating. The long-flowerer would get a 7 and 9.

All in all, I recommend this strain to anyone with a few successful grows behind them, but not for newbies.

The next two reports, for Bebop and Planet of the Grapes, will not be glowing. Golden Goat was the find of this grow.
