This indica-dominant California strain will have you thinking about taking a hike in the woods with its clean, green grass smell that has hints of herbs. The potent smell is actually the first thing many users notice about Cali Gold and 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 also look impressive, with bulky, crystalline buds. Effects tend to be body relaxing but not completely sedative, so that hike may just be a possibility.
Cali Gold’s flowers tend to be only small to medium in size, adhering in tight, almost spherical formations. The buds hold the dense structure one might expect of an indica variety, with its leaves curling tightly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a bright shade of spring green and are twisted through with orange and brown pistils. Finally, translucent amber trichomes cover these already-colorful buds, giving them the yellowish glow to which the strain’s name refers.
