Californian Orange has a citrus-dominant aroma with notes of orange, mandarin, lemon and earth

Californian Orange, the name says it all, California oranges. This cannabis strain has a lot of citrus terpenes and the proportion of myrcene and limonene in this strain is high compared to other strains. Most plants have a strong citrus aroma and strong citrus taste. However, there are also phenotypes that can taste a bit more floral and tropical with occasional earthy notes.

All plants have significant resin production, which extends well into the leaves. It’s a sticky strain! It’s not the most potent strain when it comes to THC, she scores medium to high here, but it is one with a very potent and pungent terpene profile.

The scent can start gently during flowering, but once it is there you will enjoy a wonderful fresh citrus scent. The smell can sometimes be a bit sour with mainly citrus/lime-dominant notes. The pure taste of orange and mandarin oranges mixed with a bit of earth/skunk makes this a very tasty old-school USA strain.

Californian Orange is a cannabis strain with a rich history that originated in California, USA

Good connections in the breeding world were the basis of Dutch Passion’s success in the early years. The California tour in the 1970s proved to be the perfect opportunity to find a new cannabis strain with a unique flavor profile. The goal: to find a strain with a real orange/lemon scent and taste. Californian Orange was found and the genetics were taken to Amsterdam. Selective breeding was used and seeds were soon produced for the European growing community. The rest is history.

What exactly are Californian Orange genetics?

Californian Orange also known as; ‘Cali Orange’, ‘Cali-O’ and ‘Cali Orange Bud’ is a stabilised hybrid cannabis strain with Californian roots. This 50/50 Indica/Sativa strain was crossed in the 1980s and is available exclusively from Dutch Passion. The genetics of this variety originated from an exceptional Californian plant with a very pungent terpene profile of ripe oranges and mandarins with an earthy background. It is a true old-school USA classic of the highest quality.

This traditional California cannabis plant originated in the hippy era. Developed during the 1970s, brought to the Netherlands and bred in the 1980s in order to make the seeds available in Europe as well.
