Malawi Gold is what everyone expects when they think of a pure Sativa plant. It has large, slim fan leaves that typically become a very dark green in color, it grows tall and branches heavily and as it flowers it develops a reddish-purple coloration. The structure of Malawi Gold is just like a Christmas tree. This strain will grow large with multiple branches, all of them containing some lovely, heavy buds.
Malawi Gold is an equatorial Sativa so the flowering time is quite considerable, but the finished buds are covered with sticky, visible resin glands. The buds can grow up to 2 feet long when grown outdoors. Malawi Gold’s smell is sweet and refreshing with a slightly bitter pineapple and almond aftertaste in the smoke. The buzz of Malawi Gold is clear, alert, and energetic and is very psychoactive. The high is long lasting.
