This strain has been cross bred since 1980, making it one of the most stabilized crosses that you will find out there. With a 50% Indica 50% Sativa ratio and 19% THC, patients get the best of both worlds. The high is powerful, yet as well suited for beginners as it is experts. Medical smokers use this strain to decrease the symptoms of appetite loss, pain, and anxiety. The high is very strong and very clear, meaning you aren’t looking at couchlock. The only downside is the common dry mouth and dry eyes. Not only can you smell the citrus but you can taste the orange flavor in every toke as well. There is no throat irritation with this strain either – it goes in nice and smooth.
California Orange is an old school classic, dating back to at least 1980, and as such, there is a great deal of mystery surrounding its origin. It is generally accepted to be a 50/50 indica/sativa hybrid, is quite easy to grow, and produces a sweet citrus aroma reminiscent of orange zest. Also known as Cali-O, Cali Orange Bud, C.O.B., and available from Dutch Passion as “Californian Orange” in feminized seed form, this hybrid has found its way around the globe and is a favorite with many growers. Most users report that California Orange produces an upbeat, clear-headed high when consumed in moderation, while heavier dosing can lead to a more indica-type body feeling.
