Info: Cali Gold is an indica dominant hybrid. The buds are covered with so many orange hairs that they look as gold as their name. Its parents are Jah OG Kush and DS Gold. In general this is considered a strong strain and not for ‘newbies’. It provides an uplifting euphoria followed by relaxing sedation. This strain is suitable for stress, fatigue, pain, insomnia, depression and headaches. Some use it for seizure control as well.
This indica-dominant California strain will have you considering taking a hike in the woods. The potent smell is the first thing many users notice about Cali Gold as well as the taste pulls in notes of citrus, bringing to mind lemongrass. This strain is a cross between Jah OG kush and DS Gold. The plants look impressive, with bulky, crystalline buds. Effects tend to be relaxing but not completely sedative, so that increase might be a possibility.
Sample submitted: Cali Gold sativa cannabis flowers
Notes: Free from visible contamination and foreign matter.
Activated vs non-activated: activated cannabinoids are non-acidic (neutral) and are the form utilized by the human brain/ body. Activation occurs via heating (smoking, vaporizing, cooking). Cannabinoids in the natural plant are acidic (non-activated) and need to be converted to their neutral form in order to be utilized by the human body. Therefore one would expect fresh cannabis buds to contain mainly non-activated cannabinoids. Processed materials (baked goods, heated extracts) should be higher in the activated forms.
Absent Cannabinoids: if a cannabinoid or terpene is blank, it is not necessarily absent but below the limit of detection by the detector (usually less than 0.01%).
Cannabis Potency Summary Table:
Three tests of each sample were analysed and summarised below:
% by weight
THC-Acid (not activated)
*THC total (THC-Acid THC)
CBD-Acid (not activated)
*CBD total (CBD-Acid CBD)
CBG-Acid (not activated)
*CBG total (CBG-Acid CBG)
Activated Cannabinoid Total:
•when reporting totals, acidic cannabinoids are multiplied by 0.877 to account for loss of mass from decarboxylation upon heating (activating)
