Clockwork Orange Strain

In 1971, Stanley Kubrick produced and directed a film titled Clockwork Orange.

It is an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Anthony Burgess in 1962.

In essence, the movie was disturbing in horrific ways. As such, calling a strain after this film has a negative connotation.

In reality, the Clockwork Orange strain brings on a massive and intense cerebral high.

One thing that needs mentioning early on is that it is not for the faint of heart – literally. In other words, people with a heart condition should NOT use this cannabis hybrid.

Clockwork Orange, known for its notoriety, also has a dubious past. No one can say for sure where it originated from, but the consensus is that its parents are G13 and Black Widow.

Even Riot Seeds, which made its seeds available for a limited time cannot be sure.
