Another treat for you all here, a classic - an original! But in very small quantities at the moment!
UK grown - Top shelf - Californian Orange (50% Indica 50% Sativa)
This Cali orange is absolutely gorgeous!
What an example it is too with trichomes absolutley everywhere, top to bottom, inside and out! They lace the outside of this bud and explode from inside when you break into a Nug. The trim is brilliant - she has been given the salon treatment she deserved! Ever had buds so perfect it actually feels like sacrilege to break into them? This is that.
As for the smell - i expected her to have quite a dominant orangey smell but she smells much skunkier than she does orangey! However make no mistake, the citrus is certainly there! As soon as you’ve rolled a joint, take a dry toke first and you will be greeted immediately by that sweet orangey taste that this strain is known for.
When you spark up and start smoking you are again rewarded instantly with a lovely dank, gassy and piney taste followed up with what i can only describe as a spray of sweet citrus on and across your taste buds, a perfect "orange zest" like taste - similar to when breaking open an orange - sweet, juicy, zesty, beautiful yummyness!
This example definitely lives up to its recognised 50/50 hybrid status. Although the Indica side of things doesnt take long to get to work and certainly hits home given a little patience! At first it maybe felt a little bit slow to kick in, minutes later there was a sudden and wonderful - full face and head hit! Especially behind the eyes and over the top of my head. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised at how hard of a head hit this gave me before delivering the full body relaxation as you progress through a blunt. It provided an incredibly euphoric feeling with an almost instant relaxation but at the same time creative and elevated. Lovely stone and high!
This would be a recommended strain for anyone suffering anxiety, stress or hypertension. Cali Orange is recommended for pain treatment too. Unfortunately I cant vouch for that as I had no pains to treat at the time but based on the smoke itself, I would have to agree that this would be a great pain relief strain.
With a relatively small dose you should be able to function quite happily with the ability to carry on about your day with ease, just bare in mind the permanent ear to ear grin plastered across your face :) oh and sunglasses may be required ;)
However if you are a little over zealous then expect to fall prey to couch lock... which is what happened to me! Personally i would usually require an indica leaning strain for night time use but this Cali Orange actually sent me to sleep like an absolute log with the added and pleasent suprise of ZERO stoneover the following morning.
The only downside (if you can call it that) for me was, what can only be described as - the mega munchies! I know I wasn’t hungry at the time, I had just finished a BBQ with enough food to feed a small country and I was incredibly stuffed! Yet after a smoke of this I found myself insatiably peckish :)
Lovely smoke for an outdoor venture/adventure but equally a great evening/nightime smoke. Enjoy Biggaz! Very small quantity at the moment so grab it while you can!
Keep smoking the best and stay high,
