Orange Kush Strain Information

Orange Kush represents a special blend of Green Devil Genetics that helps a person’s body find the right tonus for relaxation and smooth functioning. This breed is so infused with the richness of its citrus flavor that it leaves no consumer not impressed. What is more, this is one of the most enduring marijuana breeds as it is quite resistant to the majority of pests, which means that its green leaves always grow long while being densely covered by trichome crystals and orange-tinted hairs.

One more feature that makes the Orange Kush Weed strain a truly special breed is the fact that it represents a perfect hybrid of Sativa and Indica as their correlation in this marijuana’s phenotype is 50%/50%. Nonetheless, the kush is being dominated by the THC levels, which might sometimes grow up to 24%. So, the effect of inhaling this skank might be truly mind-blowing.

Still, the abundance of flavor and scents contained in this strain compensate for any ‘negative’ effect that it might have because the taste is truly strong and saturated. The ensemble of sweet orange that plays with the notes of spicy scents will make you forget the first time that you have tried your first Orange Kush joint.

Nowadays, when the strain mesmerizes everyone who tries it with the abundance of its taste, it becomes crystal clear that it has entered the world of medical solutions once and for good.
