RIFF Gilded Grams Review

Gilded Grams from RIFF is their take on the Golden Goat strain and is overflowing with fruity, sour and spicy aromas.

RIFF Gilded Grams is a sativa-dominant hybrid was the product of an unplanned pollination between a Hawaiian-Romulan strain and Sweet Skunk.

The aroma and flavour profile of RIFF’s Gilded Grams (strain Golden Goat) is described as a combination of sour fruit with hints of herbal spice. In case you’re wondering the name comes from the fact this cultivar takes on a unique golden appearance as it nears harvest time. That’s pretty much all the information we could find so it will be nice to see this cultivar with our eyes.

Plus, we curious how it stacks up to RIFF’s DT81 which is another sativa we reviewed last year.

The product arrived in a large black plastic bag with resealable zipper opening. We tore open the seal and were greeted by a strong sour herbal aroma with distinct but not overpowering spicy undertone. Not far off the description RIFF said to expect in terms of the cannabis smell.


It was nice to see RIFF included a humidity shield inside the bag, however our excitement diminished substantially when we dumped out the contents. For the most part all the bud was tiny little leafy pieces, in fact so small that finding one to photograph was actually a challenge. They were olive colored with orange hairs and a moderate trichome layer but due to the size it was hard to see much detail with the naked eye.


The flavour profile was very much aligned with the aroma as it delivered a moderately strong sour herbal taste that ended with a mild but clear spicy aftertaste on exhale.


Listed with 19.2% THC content and price tag of $26.95 for 3.5 grams ($134.95 for 28 grams) we found RIFF’s Gilded Grams delivered a moderately strong balanced high. After smoking we felt a mild cerebral buzz that was uplifting but like the aroma not overpowering. This was combined with a slight tingling sensation throughout the body that passed quickly. Overall this flower is decent but we’d group it with RIFF’s Cryo Chronic as it’s one of our least favourite products from this brand.

Since high school my friends and I have been recreational cannabis users so we decided to start Merry Jade after legalization in 2019. We review and photograph the different products then share them on this website. The rating system we use is called “SAFE” which stands for Smell, Appearance, Flavour and Experience. Each category gets a score out of 10.

Have your say!
