Why should I buy Californian Orange feminised seeds?

  • Californian Orange is an old-school cannabis classic, this hybrid strain has been loved by connoisseurs for decades for its excellent terpene profile and relaxing high

  • This is a medium sized, high yielding strain

  • Californian Orange has an average flowering time of about 9 weeks. It is a very resinous strain with a compact structure and a good flower-to-leaf ratio

  • The orange dominant aroma and taste is truly fantastic. This strain is also known for a pleasant relaxed hybrid high. The effect is energetic, euphoric, slightly uplifting but also physically calming
This variety offers unsurpassed quality in terms of aroma, taste and effect. A small percentage of the plants can develop male flowers, which is expressed most heavily when plants suffer from severe stress. It is advised to check your plants thoroughly during flowering and act immediately before the male flowers open and pollinate the other plants.

Californian Orange, a beloved cup winning old-school cannabis variety

Californian Orange has won several cups over the years. This unique 'Orange' cannabis strain won her first prize in 2013. She then took first prize at the Copa Txapelketa in Spain. In 2016 she even won 2 different cups at the same event in Argentina. She took first place at the Copa Cannabis in both the Outdoor category and the Extract category. This showed everyone that she is not only a very suitable plant for both outdoor and indoor cultivation, but also for making cannabis extracts.

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. Californian Orange is a very uniform and robust Orange variety, a popular cannabis strain from launch and still a sought-after strain among connoisseurs today.

Californian Orange has big sticky buds with a thick resin layer and a strong citrus dominant aroma

Californian Orange is a strong and stable strain with a solid layer of resin and trichomes, even on the leaves. In some cases, classic old-school varieties, such as our Cali-O retain a large number of loyal, repeat growers. Even decades after she was first launched, despite all the new and hip cannabis strains that have been developed in recent years.

This original Dutch Passion strain has more than earned its place. Most growers like the old-fashioned effect, a clear energetic up-high, and the excellent terpene profile. This intense orange scent and taste will never get boring. The yield of Californian Orange is medium to large, but the smoking experience is anything but average. The high is really nice and relaxing, it gives you energy, makes you euphoric and makes you dream away. This effect has ensured a loyal fan base.

This lady prefers a stable indoor climate. She will need about 9 to a maximum of 10 weeks indoors to fully flower. It is a good strain for growing on hydro, or for growing with the SOG technique. She is known for producing a thick main bloom but also works well as a multi-topped bush. She also thrives naturally, typically growing into a 1-meter-tall plant with a normal pre-growth period.

It is easy to grow and does not require any special techniques to achieve a good result. The buds of our Californian Orange are covered in a generous layer of resin. They look beautiful and are also quite sticky. It is a strain with a normal flower-to-leaf ratio. Her plant structure can best be described as medium.

The internode spacing is short to medium and the leaves are of a hybrid structure giving the appearance of a perfect hybrid. Beautiful large leaves that show both the appearance of a Sativa and an Indica.

The genetics used for Californian Orange guarantee the following properties:

  • A medium sized strain with a hybrid plant and leaf structure and very resinous buds
  • Californian Orange has a fantastic terpene profile, the intense smell and taste of oranges and other citrus fruits is never boring
  • The buds have an average THC level and a pleasant, energetic, euphoric high

Californian Orange is suitable for both beginners and experts. It is a plant that is easy to grow

Effects of Californian Orange

This variety is very popular for its strong clear 'up' high. A special variety for great socialising. If you smoke more, the high becomes heavier, and more physical, but the quality does not diminish. This is a great variety to smoke at a party or during the day without worrying about getting stuck on the couch. If you consume a larger dose of this strain, you can expect calming, heavier, more physical effects.

But Californian Orange doesn't make you lazy or sleepy. It is a nice hybrid high that always provides a balanced effect that is both mental and physical. It can influence and speed up your thoughts. In general, this strain will make you relax, you will be happy and de-stressed and will enjoy a boost in your energy levels.

The flowering time of Californian Orange

Californian Orange has an average flowering time of 9 weeks. Some phenotypes may be a week faster, especially when grown in ideal conditions. Outdoors, or indoors in unfavourable conditions, she may take a little longer to mature. Then she will take about 10 weeks before she can be harvested. The plants are medium in size and grow to about 1 metre when pre-grown for about a month.

This strain does not stretch very much, she will continue to grow for about 2 (up to a maximum of 3) weeks during the flowering phase with the most stretch in the first and second week of 12/12. You should therefore take this into account. If you want to keep her small and low, you can top or fim her.

You could also snap/bend or super crop the highest branches/blooms once the flowering phase has started. This ensures that the stretch is somewhat inhibited. Outdoors she is less suitable for growing in temperate climates and is best grown in a dry and sunny climate.

This strain copes well with warm temperatures. This is why she performs well in Mediterranean countries and will be ready for harvest there around the end of September, beginning of October.

The yield of Californian Orange

Californian Orange produces XL yields of around 400-450 grams/m² and the plants grow to an average height of 1 to 2 m (for outdoor cultivation). This is a beautiful resinous variety of a very high quality. The flowers become quite compact for a hybrid and will therefore put quite a bit of weight on the scales. She is not the most widely branched plant but rather a nice compact tree.

Some buds can get quite firm and heavy. Growing her naturally can help support the heavy buds towards the end of the flowering phase. This can be done with sticks, string or a support net. Outdoors, in a sunny climate, you can harvest between 250-500g per plant. Give her enough root space so that she can develop well.

Advice from our experts

Californian Orange is one of Dutch Passion's ultimate classics. This strain has been around since the seed bank officially started trading. And she is still a favourite among the connoisseurs. This strain grows best in a stable and steady climate. 20-27 degrees Celsius is really ideal for her. This strain can be sensitive to light stress, so make sure the room is completely closed with no light leaks.

It is also best to keep the lamps at the right distance so that no 'light burn' occurs. This of course applies to all varieties, but if you want a nice resin-rich bloom that remains compact and does not 'foxtail', then this is extra important with this variety. She can also tolerate somewhat lower temperatures during the flowering phase, which often creates a very special autumn colour 'fade'.

Just make sure that nighttime temperatures don't drop below 16-17 degrees in an indoor grow as below that point it can cause problems. All in all a very classic, unique and uniform 'Orange' variety which, in terms of smell and taste, is not inferior to other new varieties such as 'Tangie, Mimosa' etc.
