California Indica feminised is an indica-dominant combination of California Orange Bud and a highly resinous Afghani hash-plant cultivar. It is a fast-flowering strain with a delicious aroma and flavour that is very easy to grow.
California Indica's parentage is quite exceptional; the mother was a large and huge-yielding citrus-infused sativa-dominant California Orange Bud while the father was the double Afghani Northern Lights #1 x Hash Plant hybrid which also fathered Sensi Seeds' illustrious Hash Plant strain. Utilising such seemingly diametrically-opposed cannabis strains together has resulted in incredible hybrid vigour and giving large, robust plants with multiple branches. Its growth pattern is heavily indica-dominant; plants are short and fast-flowering with buds that tend to run together forming long and dense colas.
Plants grown indoors will flower in a 7 - 8 week period gaining between 100 - 150% in height during the stretch of early flowering. Outdoors plants can become the size of small trees given suitable conditions which include a warm climate; harvest will be by mid-October in northern latitudes. The buds are true gourmet cannabis with a rich orange/citrus aroma and flavour that is improved with careful drying and curing, however, during growth the aroma is fairly subdued and not overly strong. Their appearance is predominantly orange with only the occasional glimpse of green showing through. Its flavours linger long on the palate and at its best is likened to a hashy/orange-flavoured dark chocolate.
The high is very nicely balanced with the sativa side providing some uplift. While heavily indica-influenced the effect is not overpoweringly stupefying and therefore medicinal users or those whose tolerance is not fully developed will find a pleasantly relaxing, warm high yet potent and long-lasting enough to please the die-hard smoker. The range of delicious terpenes is actually highlighted better by vaporizing as opposed to smoking and medicinal users will gain access to more of the THC and CBD cannabinoids in this way.
Whether you are an expert grower with many years' experience or a complete newbie this strain will prove easy and rewarding. Get yours from Seedsman today.

About Sensi Seeds
There is no other seed bank in the world that has been coveted with more awards than Sensi Seeds. From the Highlife Cup to the Cannabis Cup, Sensi have achieved unrivalled legendary status in the seed bank world.
In the early 1970’s, the founder of Sensi, Ben, opened a clothes shop in the Dutch city of Rotterdam where he sold homemade clothing. A few years earlier, at the age of seventeen, he smoked his first joint. But it wasn’t until he began making regular trips to Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan to purchase textiles that he became aware of the plant’s versatility. He learned about hemp fibre’s suitability as, among other things, a textile and was given cannabis and cannabis seeds by local farmers. Ben discovered that the cannabis plant had so much to offer in spite of it being prohibited and vilified in all corners of the world.
It became one of his passions to collect cannabis seeds from Central and South East Asia and the Asian subcontinent. Back home in the Netherlands, he started to cultivate these seeds in order to learn more about the growth process of this very special plant.
At the start of the 1980’s, the first examples of innovative, stabilised hybrids, such as Haze and Skunk, arrived in Europe from the United States. Ben was one of a mere three Dutch cultivators who were granted access to these hybrids, which are considered an important blueprint for the development of European hybrids.
At the end of the seventies, Ben found out that cannabis seeds did not fall under the cannabis prohibition; it was only the plant that was prohibited and not the seeds. As it was not illegal to sell seeds, Ben reasoned that the production process should not be illegal either. He started his seed company after a lawyer confirmed this insight and in 1985 the Sensi Seed Club, also known as the Sensi Connoisseurs’ Club, came into being. Ben took over a company called the Seed Bank in 1991 and the gene libraries were merged to create the Sensi Seed Bank as we know it today.
Sensi Seeds search for cannabis genetics has never ceased in the last 30 years. Their dedication towards genetic preservation has also never diminished. To this day, Sensi are true to their roots and are now, more than ever, aware that the future of cannabis genetic research lies in its past, in the genetics that started it all.
Sensi genetics offer not only the high yield and range of effects people search for, they actually represent a part of Cannabis’ history.
With a host of award winning strains, it would be unwise to overlook Sensi Seeds, available to buy at Seedsman now.
