California Gold is aptly named as growers will really think they've struck gold when they harvest this plant! It is 80% indica, is easy to grow and it produces extreme quantities of honey-like resin. At to that very good yields and a reasonably short flowering time and you have a great tribute to California's recent recreational legalisation move which this strain celebrates.
California Gold is suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation, in the latter's case even at higher latitudes. Indoors plants remain at an average height of 100 cm. making it a good selection for those with limited headroom. In a flowering period of 9 weeks or just under yields of 500 gr/m2 are quite feasible. Outdoors plants will grow taller, especially if planted directly in the ground, reaching a height of approximately 175 cm. and yielding up to 750 gr/plant with northern hemisphere harvests due in early October while those in southern latitudes will be ready for the chop in early April.
A special feature of this strain is the sheer quantity of resin that is produced and the fact that it closely resembles amber honey. Buds are nice and chunky and literally covered in sparkling resin. It has a perfume that reminds one of sweet citrus fruit with predominantly sweet lemon and mango on the palate. THC production is high to very high at between 18% - 22% and very low CBD at less than 0.1%. The effect is a potent, relaxing indica body hit but remaining clear and uplifting. The powerfully relaxing effect may well be suitable for medicinal cannabis users.
