Sold by Riot Seeds, Clockwork Orange is a hybrid strain. Described as their 'holy grail plant,' it was bred selectively over a six-year period. The buds of this strain have a bright orange color and possess a very earthy taste. It produces some euphoric cerebral effects, but the high is mostly Indica in nature. Users have reported an extremely powerful yet numbing body high. For this reason, Clockwork Orange is not recommended for anyone with a heart condition.
The strain's cerebral effect can be good for relieving stress, anxiety, and chronic depression. Primarily, Clockwork Orange is prescribed for people living with chronic aches and pain.
Clockwork Orange's genetics are a mystery. Matt Riot got it as a cut from a guy near Temecula, California, who supposedly told him two things. First, the plant was an experiment with colchicines. Second, it was a mutant from a pack of Alaskan Ice. While neither of these statements are confirmed, the original strain did have large leaves with a distinctive crinkle pattern.
Seeds from this strain are rare. Riot only sells a specific number each year, causing the demand to remain quite high. It can be grown indoors or out but is not recommended for use with the Sea of Green technique as some of the seeds retain their mutant leaf trait. Clockwork Orange flowers between nine and eleven weeks, and it yields between 100 and 200 grams per square meter (or 1,000 watts).
