Info: Cali Orange has been around since 1980 and its origins are a bit mysterious. It is thought to be a 50/50 indica/sativa hybrid and has a distinctive sweet citrus smell. Moderate use produces an upbeat, relatively clear-headed high but if you smoke lots you will start to feel the indica body stone kicking in.
California Orange is an old school classic, dating back to 1980, and as such, there is a good deal of mystery surrounding its origin. It’s generally accepted to be a 50/50 indica/sativa hybrid, is very easy to grow, and creates a sweet citrus aroma reminiscent of orange zest. Also known as Cali-O, Cali Orange Bud, C.O.B. and available from Dutch Passion as “Californian Orange” in feminized seed form, this hybrid has found its way across the globe and is a favorite with many growers. Users report that California Orange produces an upbeat high when consumed in moderation, while heavier dosing can cause a more indica-type body sense.
Samples submitted included: Cali Orange 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
Δ9 thc (activated)
Δ8 THC (activated)
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)
CBV-Acid (not activated)
*CBV total (CBV-Acid CBV)
Activated Cannabinoid Total:
•when reporting totals, acidic cannabinoids are multiplied by 0.877 to account for loss of mass from decarboxylation upon heating (activating)
