Californian Orange Strain Genetics
A parent of the award-winning Orange Hill Special, the genetic background of these feminised marijuana seeds is something of a Dutch Passion secret. However, what we do know, not only through the name and information from the seedbank but also due to the classic, recognisable flavours, is that this is a cannabis strain, while created in the 80s, is rich in California heritage dating back to the ‘70s.
With aspects of Skunk, Kush, Haze, and Cookies to the tastes, smells, and effects, you don’t need to know this cannabis strain’s parents to know you’re in for a high-quality treat!
Californian Orange Strain Terpene Profile
There are two primary flavours at play with this wonderful strain, one that you feel on the way in, the other on the way out, and they are due to the abundant levels of terpenes found in California Orange. Firstly, on the inhale, you have that classic West Coast Cali orange taste full of earthy, herbal tones, which is due to myrcene.
On the exhale, the second half of this cannabis strain’s name comes into play, with a strong zest of citrus flavour, provided by limonene, a terpene found in the rinds of oranges and other citrus fruits. It’s not a unique combination, but it’s deep, rich, and classic, which has made it a favourite in both California and around the globe.
Californian Orange Strain Effects
That old-school 60s vibe is strong here, so it won’t surprise you to hear that this high THC level marijuana strain (around 15-20%) has one of the most sociable buzzes we’ve come across. Great for when you’re sitting in your tent or VW bug with your buddies and shooting the breeze.
Uplifting and relaxing while maintaining a clear state of mind, these dense nugs provide a great choice of daytime marijuana strain, a great accompaniment to getting stuff done without slowing you down too much!
Californian Orange Strain Medical Benefits
The medical benefits of Californian Orange feminized seeds are reported to assist with alleviating symptoms of stress, both in the short-term and associated with long-term anxiety disorders. The stress-relieving qualities of this medicinal strain may aid in lightening the mental burden and lifting the mood.
Another potential assistance this hybrid marijuana strain provides is for those struggling with a loss of appetite, especially after operations. The munchies are strong with this classic cannabis, ensuring the mood to eat should be reintroduced to you, even if it’s been absent for a while!
How to Grow Californian Orange Strain Seeds
These feminised seeds grow well both indoors and outdoors, with a growing time of as little as 9 weeks from germination indoors. Outside and greenhouse growers can expect a harvest in the 1st or 2nd week of October in warm climates. Expect a pretty high yield too, around 400g/m2 indoors and a little more per plant for outside gardeners.
While this relatively leafy plant produces nugs that feel, smell, and taste old-school, the THC content is far from outdated, and that’s clear from the coat of resinous trichomes that cover the dark green and orange buds nugs that appear, along with a pronounced citrus aroma a little before harvest time.
