“Easy on beginners” is the best way to describe California Orange Bud, both in cultivation and effect. This classic award-winning strain will brighten up your day like the Californian mid-summer sun.
Heritage & Genetics: Sensi Seeds brought this classic strain back from California to the Netherlands in the early 80’s and perfected it for indoor cultivation. The exact genetic makeup of this strain is shrouded in mystery, but most agree that it is a 50/50 indica/sativa hybrid with genetic traits that might have come from a Skunk #1 genotype.
Flavor & Aroma: California Orange Bud has an unmistakable zesty and yet sweet orange flavor combined with other subtle citrus hints and a spicy undertone. California Orange Bud is a delicious introduction for those who haven’t popped their “Pot cherry” yet.
Effect: If used in moderation, California Orange Bud has a pleasant sativa-like effect that makes you feel happy and alert, while stimulating the creative mind. If you take an extra dose, you will start to experience the indica dominant body-stoned effects. But, California Orange Bud will never dampen your mood or lock you to the couch.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that THC could be responsible for the appetite-stimulating and energy-boosting effects of some strains. This moderate THC, low CBD strain may, therefore, be somewhat helpful for coping with fatigue or suppressed appetite although high THC strains are thought to be more effective. The moderate THC level of this strain could also provide some relief from mild aches, pains, and stress.
Grow characteristics: California Orange Bud is specially engineered for indoor cultivation unless you live in a warm and sunny climate like that of California. It’s very easy to grow for beginners but if you are looking for a strain to advance your skills, like your first try at hydroponics, then California Orange Bud is a safe bet. Just make sure you give the plant sufficient high-quality nutrients.
