The Gold Line From Cali Connection

5 min

The Gold Line is a new line of genetics created by the breeders at The Cali Connection, bringing you the finest, loudest, and most delicious crosses of the best strains California has to offer. We have a look at all entries in this line and what makes them special.

The Cali Connection is a seedbank that produces only the best from the West Coast. And thanks to companies like them, California is renowned for its cannabis genetics and for producing the most spectacular weed in the world. The company is based in Los Angeles, providing the finest Cali-grown strains in seed form. According to their founder and owner, known as “Swerve”, their mission is to provide the general public and medical marijuana community with true-bred strains.

Swerve founded The Cali Connection in 2008, after he had quickly developed a reputation in the industry for providing rare cuts and genetics. It was a natural progression from there to get into the seed industry because, like he says, "seeds are the next best option" and "it all starts from seed".

The Cali Connection aims to deliver true breeds—seeds that are true to the genetics of their mother and/or hybrid cross. This way, their genetics are stable and preserved, and could even be used by growers to create their own strains. To this day, the company has won numerous awards for its outstanding and top-quality genetics, including favourites like Tahoe OG, SFV OG, Larry OG, Julius Caesar, Alien OG, Deadhead OG, amongst many others.

Having multiple sclerosis, Swerve understands the importance of making true-bred cannabis seeds available for medicinal purposes, and that has become a personal passion for him.


The 10 Best Gold Line Cannabis Strains


78 (Cali Connection)

78 is the daughter of Gelato #33 and Gelato #45, and The Cali Connection believes this is the very best of the Cookies cultivars existing today. They felt the urge to combine these two modern day cannabis legends. They had to, it was a must! The outcome is a bit of a larger-yielding plant compared to the parents. 78 produces around 250–300g/m². The smell of this plant is just outstandingly loud, so make sure you have new carbon filtres.

78 will grow fast, develops a squat stature, and tends to stretch in flowering. The smoke tastes like a very pungent blueberry/citrus mix that also has an earthy, sweet lavender undertone. Your palate will be coated with this delicious treat! You will definitely want some more of this after smoking it. 78 is expected to be a favourite among extract artists as well, thanks to her extremely pungent terpene profile. She flowers for 64–68 days.

Sugar Mill (Cali Connection)

Being the result of crossing Gorilla Glue #4 and Wedding Cake, SugarMill will leave you wondering how on earth a flower can have such a sweet, sugary flavour. SugarMill will deliver charming yields of 250–300g/m². She is a plant with a solid central cola and great lateral branching. Plus, she is very easy to clone.

Topping and training is highly recommended for this strain. SugarMill has a flowering time of 65–70 days. She smells and tastes like a perfect blend of vanilla with creamy citrus hash. That mix gets rounded off by a subtle, yet complex mint undertone. This exotic flavour will linger on your tongue for a while, that's for sure! Furthermore, extracts of SugarMill will be some of the most fragrant you can try.
