California Orange, also known as Orange Bud, is an old school West Coast cannabis strain that has remained unchanged for decades. Most likely a Skunk variety, California Orange is an extremely resinous strain right down to the leaf tips. It offers a pronounced citrus aroma and flavor and a clear and functional high. It can, however, be very potent in that there is no apparent ceiling to the high. Depending upon the amount used, California Orange can take one from chatty and active to totally and completely relaxed, often requiring an armchair or couch and a bit of time out.
