A Medicine Box team favorite, Gold Country Afgoo found its identity within Nevada County’s Gold Country.

The Mediterranean climate with wet, cool, rainy winters and hot summers distinguish this growing appellation in the undulating Sierra Nevada foothills. This single origin, indica-dominant strain has been yielding high-quality medicine in this region for over 30 years.

Seabird and bat guanos high in both nitrogen and phosphorous are applied during the respective vegetation and flower phases under mixed light greenhouses.

Our cultivation team finishes the final phases of flower development with a customized flushing regime that boosts the fantastic crystal content and beautiful terpene profile of Gold Country Afgoo.

Medicine Box has been growing this strain for six years, taking the time to learn how to help the plants thrive. Our team of cultivators love its beautiful, Christmas tree appearance. During the final phase of flowering,2 the Afgoo explodes with growth, forming gorgeous, gooey crystals.

The high THC content produces fantastic yields for oil, allowing us to make some amazing edibles.
