Born-on Date: June 2023
Tahoe OG x Stardawg
California Cannon is like the favorite child—the one who bears the best traits of both parents’ families and, as a result, is beloved by all. The strain combines two of the strongest and most sought-after genetic lines in existence: OG Kush and Chemdawg, both of which have received worldwide acclaim for their potent flavors.
Although OG Kush and Chemdawg are similar in many respects, they are not identical. Combining the powers of the two lines, California Cannon offers the dense, frosty buds of the Tahoe OG and the superior vigor and yield of the Stardawg. California Cannon’s unique aroma, flavor, and intense euphoric high and the ease with which it can be grown have made it a favorite among both users and growers.
California Cannon Cannabis Strain
California Cannon is an F1 hybrid of Tahoe OG and Stardawg. The term “F1” means “first filial generation.” An F1 hybrid arises through the crossing of two distinct strains. Growers prize F1 hybrid seeds because they typically offer more stability than F2, or second-generation, strains and they tend to be more vigorous than highly inbred varieties.
Because California Cannon is an F1 hybrid, most of its phenotypes will display a combination of traits from both parental lines. The genetic makeup is roughly 50 percent Tahoe OG, 25 percent Chem 4, 22 percent Chem D, and 3 percent Afghan. Growers find that some phenotypes tend to be more Tahoe-dominant, and some are more Chem-dominant. However, most phenotypes will produce high yields of top-shelf flowers.
Qualities of California Cannon
Aroma and Flavor
California Cannon is as pungent as its parents and leans heavily toward bleach, lemon-scented chemical cleaning products, petrol products, and industrial scents. This is definitely not for those who want a lighter, fruity-flavored strain. Some OG-dominant phenotypes will primarily display a bouquet of gasoline and lemon, and some Chem-dominant phenotypes will lean toward halitosis, pine, and skunk notes. All phenotypes offer aromas that will please the most discerning of connoisseurs.
The structure of California Cannon reflects the best traits of its ancestors. It combines the dense, frosty buds of Tahoe OG with the high yield of Stardawg. Growers may find that Tahoe-dominant phenotypes tend to be taller, with more internodal spacing and broader leaflets. In contrast, Stardawg-dominant phenotypes tend to be shorter and branchier, with thinner leaflets. Both Tahoe-dominant and Stardawg-dominant phenotypes have robust branches and thick, dark green leaves.
Growing California Cannon
OG Kush phenotypes are infamously tricky to grow and are sensitive to changes in light, nutrients, and pH. Stardawg, in contrast, is an extremely beginner-friendly variety and is resilient to most environmental stresses. By combining these two strains, California Cannon produces healthy, vigorous plants that are easy to grow while offering many of the prized traits of OG Kush.
California Cannon is a hearty and adaptable strain that grows well in many environments, both indoors and outdoors. Moreover, this variety will produce high yields of top-shelf buds in both hydroponic and soil setups. The flexibility of the strain makes California Cannon a great choice for closet growers and cash croppers alike.
Because California Cannon is an F1 hybrid, it thrives during the vegetative period, quickly branching out with robust stems and large, healthy leaves. Although this strain produces thick stems, its heavy colas may require support. Staking or trellising the plants early in flowering may boost the yield. Some OG-dominant phenotypes will stretch significantly in flowering, so topping or super cropping during the vegetative growth phase is advisable. These plants respond well to many high-stress and low-stress training methods, including fimming, lollipopping, or scrogging.
Pest and Disease Control
California Cannon is resilient to mold and many types of pests, making it an attractive variety for outdoor growers. But the strain is susceptible to powdery mildew. Indoor growers can avoid powdery mildew infestations by keeping the humidity level low, raising the temperature to 75 degrees Fahrenheit, pruning excess leaves, and using fans to increase air circulation. Some foliar sprays such as water and sodium bicarbonate solutions may also help fight powdery mildew.
Some OG-dominant phenotypes may also be prone to bud rot due to the flowers’ extreme density and frost. Like powdery mildew, growers can stop bud rot by pruning the plants, reducing humidity, and using fans to increase air circulation.
Both OG Kush and Chemdawg love calcium and magnesium. Some Chem D-dominant phenotypes may display leaf variegation due to pH fluctuations or calcium and magnesium deficiencies. Incorporating a cal-mag supplement or Epsom salt and dolomite lime into the regular nutrient regime is advisable. Feeding with a stable pH is also essential.
