California Strains

Say hello to Hollywood with the best California cannabis seeds.

It is no secret that California produces the dankest of all dank buds. In fact, California-grown strains are so coveted that it became widely regarded as the "artisan brand" of cannabis. In recognition of its value, Homegrown Cannabis Co. vows to make these coveted varieties more accessible to many by adding it in Homegrown's premium seed catalog.

California: The Mecca for Cannabis Cultivators

The terroir of California is considered the "mecca" for cannabis cultivators. Mainly, that is because the Emerald Triangle, where the famed Humboldt, Mendocino, and Trinity Counties converge, is highly suitable for growing dank marijuana. The combination of its fertile living soil, Mediterranean climate, and biodiversity is simply the best natural environment for nurturing healthy cannabis plants with superior genetics. As such, it should come as no surprise that it is every cultivators' dream to own a patch of land or at least set foot in this revered "green" state.

If both options are not possible, the next best option is to mimic the Californian climate in the comfort of home.

Top 5 Favorite Californian Strains

The Golden State's Emerald Triangle, home to famous legends like OG Kush, Girl Scout Cookies, and Sherbert, is renowned for producing some of the best strains in the world. Among the plethora of choices, Homegrown Cannabis Co. selected the ones that have exemplary traits and growth patterns. These are the best strains that California has to offer.


Blue Dream

Blue Dream is a relatively modern take on two of the most popular strains - not only in the USA but also in the world. Its primary influence is a Haze plant grown in Santa Cruz, California, where it also originated. As such, it can deliver a pronounced cerebral stimulation, courtesy of a rich heritage tracing back to Sativa landraces from Colombia, India, Mexico, and Thailand.

Although the onset can be intense, the experience is not likely to be overwhelming - unless abused. Mainly, it is due to the choice of Blueberry as the second genetic forerunner. Its Indica properties complement the mental stimulation by delivering full-bodied buzz. Moreover, it also acts as an anchor to keep the overall experience from becoming overbearing.

The union of Haze and Blueberry also resulted in a sophisticated terpene profile. The floral, berry, spicy concoction adds to the allure - and a delight to the palate. Beyond the scents, these compounds augment the psychoactive and medicinal effects. For this reason, Blue Dream is not only a source of leisure. It is also one of the best high-THC strains for alleviating stress, depression, fatigue, and chronic pains.

Growing this uplifting, happy strain begins with obtaining feminized seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. Quick delivery, worldwide shipping, are only some of the benefits. More importantly, the choice of this seed bank is the assurance of high reliability and germination rates. Blue Dream has a flowering period of 10 weeks. It produces large colas and dense buds with a generous coating of resins. Once ready, it is possible to harvest up to 600 grams per square meter.


Gelato

Two of the most fragrant strains - Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet - come together, birthing Gelato. Of the many phenotypes that emerged during the development stage, it is the 33rd and initially dubbed "Larry Bird." In more ways than one, it has outperformed the genetic forerunners, shooting up to the top, taking its place as one of the most popular strains in California.

This fruity, dessert-like treat, is a powerhouse, packing up to 25% THC. A rich blend of terpenes, mainly responsible for its fragrance and flavors, also enhances the psychoactive effects. Even in moderate dosage, the euphoric cerebral buzz and relaxing body stone can be intense, possibly overbearing for beginners.

Gelato is also one of the top choices for high-THC medicinal strains. Its ability to melt stress starts soon after consumption. Furthermore, it can alleviate anxiety, depression, and chronic pains - thereby not only uplifting the mood but also the quality of life.

For home cultivation, there are two choices of seeds.

Gelato Feminized Seeds

  • Origin: Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies x Sunset Sherbet
  • Genotype (Sativa/Indica): 45/55
  • THC: 18-27%
  • Flowering Time: 8-10 weeks
  • Yield: 500-600 gm/sqm

Gelato Auto-Flowering Seeds

  • Origin: Gelato x Auto GSC
  • Genotype (Sativa/Indica): 55/45
  • THC: 17-24%
  • Growth Cycle: 8-9 weeks from seeds to harvest
  • Yield: 250-300 gm/sqm


Grandaddy Purple

Purple Urkle is one of the best strains to emerge from California. Quite possibly, it is a Mendocino Purp phenotype and boasts of complex flavors constituting grape, berry, and skunk. Among its notable traits is a profoundly relaxing but tranquilizing body buzz, the ability to relieve pains, and beautiful purplish coloration. Big Bud, meanwhile, is renowned for producing massive buds. Thus, in crossing these two, the offspring dubbed Grandaddy Purple showcases the same exceptional traits that characterize both genetic forerunners.

Grandaddy Purple, also called GDP, can deliver a euphoric buzz quickly - a prelude to what comes next. After 20-30 minutes, the soothing calm on the body intensifies, hitting hard, leaving one in dreamy bliss. Its tranquilizing, couch-locking effects later leads to drowsiness and sleep.

GDP is not only for recreational uses. Arguably, it is the best high-THC medical cannabis in the world. Among its best applications are mitigating stress, pains and muscle spasms, lack of appetite, and insomnia.

Growing GDP at home can be through either feminized seeds or regular seeds. Both are excellent choices. In a well-ventilated grow room, this strain can thrive and produce a generous yield of pure medicinal buds.

Grandaddy Purple Feminized Seeds {Purple Urkle x Big Bud}

  • Genotype (Sativa/Indica): 20/80
  • THC: 19-22%
  • Flowering Time: 10-12 weeks
  • Yield: 400-500 gm/sqm

Grandaddy Purple Regular Seeds {Purple Urkle x Big Bud}

  • Genotype (Sativa/Indica): 20/80
  • THC: 17-23%
  • Flowering Time: 8-10 weeks
  • Yield: 500-600 gm/sqm

Jack Herer

Since its inception in the 90s, Jack Herer did not take long before becoming a worldwide sensation. It has stood the test of time, remaining one of the bestselling strains of all time. A testament to its greatness is the numerous awards accorded.

Genetically, Haze constitutes half of Jack Herer. Although it is arguably the best Sativa strain in the world, one glaring weakness is the excessively long flowering time. Hence, to add stability and shorten the growth cycle, Shiva Skunk and Northern Lights were explicitly chosen in a three-way cross.

Jack Herer leans slightly towards the Sativa. With up to 25% THC, it delivers an intense clear-headed mental stimulation along with an energetic buzz. Following the onset after some 30 minutes, a complementing body buzz sets in, easing tensions and further uplifting the mood.

For home cultivation, there are two choices of seeds.

Jack Herer Feminized Seeds {Haze x Northern Lights #5 x Shiva Skunk}

  • Genotype (Sativa/Indica): 55/45
  • THC: 18-25%
  • Flowering Time: 8-10 weeks
  • Yield: 400-500 gm/sqm

Jack Herer Auto-Flowering Seeds {Jack Herer x Ruderalis}

  • Genotype (Sativa/Indica/Ruderalis): 50/20/30
  • THC: 16-23%
  • Growth Cycle: 9-11 weeks from seeds to harvest
  • Yield: 400 gm/sqm


Wedding Cake

Of the most delectable strains, two that should rank high are Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie. And, these two come together, giving birth to the delightfully sweet, earthy, citrusy Wedding Cake. Never underestimate it, though, as it packs up to 25% THC and thus could deliver devastating effects - in a pleasant way. Soon after inducing an uplifting, euphoric buzz, it puts the body in deep relaxation, free of worries and tensions.

More than a recreational strain, Wedding Cake is also useful as a means to relieve stress. It could also alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression, and pain. Eventually, while basking under bliss, drowsiness sets in to help patients sleep.

Wedding Cake also goes by the name Pink Cookies. Its seeds are not often available, making it one of the most sought-after strains in California. For home cultivation, Homegrown Cannabis Co. provides two choices. Either way, the high reliability of the seeds ensures healthy growth under optimal conditions.

Wedding Cake Feminized Seeds {Girl Scout Cookies x Cherry Pie}

  • Genotype (Sativa/Indica): 30/70
  • THC: 16-25%
  • Flowering Time: 8-10 weeks
  • Yield: 500-600 gm/sqm

Wedding Cake Auto-Flowering Seeds {Wedding Cake x Girl Scout Cookies Auto}

  • Genotype (Sativa/Indica): 20/80
  • THC: 15-20%
  • Growth Cycle: 9-10 weeks from seeds to harvest
  • Yield: 600 gm/sqm
