A snowy white, crystal covered delight from Fast Buds, Californian Snow, is a fast growing hybrid that is potent & tasty. Its parent, Hot California an old-school American variety x Ruderalis, which adds the autoflowering properties. A nice strong 19% THC and a decent 1% CBD for medicinal users.
Heritage & Genetics: FastBuds have often looked to the U.S. for flavorsome and modern genetics. For California Snow they have combined Hot California with the powerful autoflowering genetics from Ruderalis, to produce a fast growing, tasty, and potent strain.
Flavor & Aroma: A fruity little beauty: you will get a powerful apple taste from California Snow (if the grow has gone well) and behind that some tangy citrus notes, lemon & lime. Some folks say she tastes a little like cake, really satisfying.
Effect: Californian Snow may sound light and fluffy but she packs a surprisingly powerful (and pleasant) punch! With 19% THC her high is strong, energetic and relatively short-lived; so she´s good for giving yourself a quick boost during the day, if you´re inured to strong strains. Novices may want to test at home in the evenings first.
Medical: Ongoing research has found that in higher doses THC may help with Glaucoma, by reducing pressure in the eye. THC and CBD have also been found to have pain-relieving qualities that are thought to amplify when the cannabinoids work together. Meanwhile, CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Considering this, this high THC, moderate CBD strain may be somewhat useful for relieving pain and inflammation often experienced with joint pain, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
Grow Characteristics: Well adapted for indoor grows, California Snow will not get too tall and if you get her light cycle right (18:6, preferably under HIDs) then she will bloom easily within just eight weeks. Under ideal conditions she can produce a very large yield, despite her relatively short size. For outdoor growers, California Snow will do well in cooler climates, and is not too taxing, ideal if you’re in an area where there are short summers. If you have long summers, well, that’s ideal too. You can do multiple grows of the same, thanks to the speed of flowering. Bud will form in long, sativa-type colas, that are delightfully frosty.
