Indica Dominant Hybrid – 65% Indica / 35% Sativa
The Orange genetics of this indica-heavy hybrid (it has a sativa/indica ratio of 35:65) make for a flavor and aroma that combines citrus, cloves, and mint. The bud is coated with bright orange hairs to match the taste and smell. With THC levels that peak at about 16%, this isn’t the strongest strain on the market, but it isn’t weak, either. CBD levels hover at about 0.3%, much too low to recommend Orange Bud as a treatment for seizures or other conditions that respond to CBD. The high delivers a mix of mind and body effects, with a shot of happiness and relaxation, plus strong feelings of euphoria. This strain provides energy and encourages creativity. Orange Bud works well in treating chronic pain and anxiety, as well as nausea and sleeplessness. Expect dry mouth with this strain; dry eyes are also relatively common, while paranoia and headaches are more rare. This strain resulted from a cross of two unknown Skunk varieties in Amsterdam in the 1980s. It has since taken root in the United States – specifically, in the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, and Michigan.
