Without reading too much into the name and its symbology, Himalayan Gold really is a befitting name for this strain, reminiscent of a breath of clean, fresh mountain air, unadulterated and pure, just like God intended it.
Himalayan Gold is one of the most unique indica-dominant hybrids, in that it feels more sativa-leaning at certain points of the high, and the effects overall are quite fluid and match the setting and your own mood and disposition to a certain extent.
Initially, it’s the sativa side that leads the dance, elevating your mind and entire being high above worries, low spirits, and grievances. You soar gently through ideas, happy thoughts, and solutions that appear in crystal definition, as the mind is a much cleaner canvas, like the sky when you go high enough above the clouds. Himalayan Gold is one of the best strains for creatives, as it gets the creative juices flowing without causing the mind to become inundated with ideas, incapable of capturing them.
Meanwhile, the body is feeling nice and relaxed, buzzing with a nice, light, tingly airiness rather than a couchlock. As far as indica-leaning hybrids go, this is quite a versatile strain you can enjoy during the day, too, especially in moderation. However, the higher the quantity, the more the indica side will prevail.
The comedown is also very gentle and natural, resembling more of a plateau, with the euphoria mellowing down to an overall sense of bliss and peace. It’s perfect for watching a movie or some other relaxing form of recreation that’s like a pleasant afterglow, making the whole experience long, substantial, and rewarding.
Not to mention that the Himalayan Gold experience often doesn’t even end with one sleeping on the couch in a typical indica fashion, but with two not sleeping in the bedroom.
Himalayan Gold’s versatility carries over into its medicinal applications.
This strain is a very suitable choice for mood disorders like depression and anxiety, almost a safe bet even, because of the cleanness of the high, bringing the risk of side and reverse effects down to a minimum. In fact, anecdotal evidence suggests it’s a good option for mood swings.
At the same time, the high THC levels and indica genetics make Himalayan Gold a solid analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent, alleviating chronic pain, arthritis, migraines, muscle soreness, and more.
Himalayan Gold is also a nice appetite enhancer, which can further benefit chemotherapy patients and others who suffer from a clinical lack of appetite.
