Cali Gold indica-dominant strain has a clean, herby smell that I love. According to the WikiLeaf website, the THC content falls between 16% to 21%, which is pretty strong. I love how this makes you stoned while calming you too. Very few strains have the ability to do this.

What I loved about this strain is the unique flavor and incredible kick. If you get to see the buds, you will appreciate their silvery-green color. Potent, fruity, and it even offers medicinal properties. I smoke this to calm my mind and relax my body…
