I received a seed of this strain as a freebie and boy was it a beast! Very large and healthy looking seed and although it wasn't the first to germinate, it's already far overtaken the other seedlings I've got (in terms of size and speed of growth). If it's adolescents is any indication of what it's adult growth will be like then this is going to be one **** of a plant
I tried some Mandala strains a few years ago, got on the Dosi/Gorilla/Sherbet merry-go-round for a couple of years and went back to Mandala last season and realised everything I really wanted was already in front of me! California Dream is just that, a dream. A dream to grow and a dream to enjoy! Grows almost un-aided, flowers quickly and decisively, giving you big chunky blobs of dense flowers absolutely bathed in trichomes. Aroma is fruity mango, with sweet touches of bubblegum and spice, all wrapped in a creamy envelope. Effect is sublime, absolute bliss and don't be fooled by the stated 17% rating, this is one knockout that will leave you wondering how such a beautiful plant was created and thankfully shared with the world for everyone to enjoy. Outdoors, full sun, organic growing really brings the best out of this strain, just like Mother Nature intended! A definite "must try" and a definite addition to my garden every summer!
The Mandala strains, and California Dream easily out-performed other strains I grew indoors in an inadequate property i had just purchased before Covid !!! The winter was extremely frigid, heating with a 40 year old heater. Hopefully I can change things around this summer with a new heater. In future grows I will only use Mandala strains because of their hardiness and their guaranteed performance in a cold Alberta Canadian winter ! Thank You Mandala!! I now have a summer supply of medicine. I can hardly wait to grow your new CBD Kush strain.
