A cleaner way to do this is to run `sudo systemctl edit guix-daemon.service`.
It will open your editor to create a drop-in override file, in this case
/etc/systemd/system/guix-daemon.service.d/override.conf, with a commented-out
version of the base unit file included. You'll want to write something like 

ExecStart=/usr/bin/guix-daemon \
    --build-users-group=_guixbuild \
    --discover=yes \

The most confusing part is that you need two ExecStart lines, one unsetting the
old value and one setting your new value.
