Bred by TGA Genetics, the Orange Velvet strain or OV (also known after its former name - Melvin) is a hybrid with a 50/50 ratio of Indica/Sativa. Its THC level is tested at 12.4%, but it can vary from 10.4% to 14%, depending on the batch. The cannabinoids found in this weed are as follows:

  • CBC 0.27-1.22%
  • CBG 0.47-1.55%
  • CBN 0.23%
  • THCV 0.37-1.35%
  • CBD 0.12-0.86%

The OV parentage is unknown, but it certainly has skunky genetics. Due to a low THC amount, this marijuana can be used by people with any level of tolerance. As it goes from the name, the strain offers a smooth smoking experience and is a good option for novices.

Taste and Smell

The Orange Velvet strain holds no surprise in its aroma palette. It features a strong orange and citrus taste delivered by valencene, which is a prevailing terpene. The tasty orange flavor takes over, but consumers can also catch pungent hints caused by myrcene and slightly sweet notes on the exhale caused by ocimene. People with a keen sense of smell can detect earthy scents as well. Other dominant terpenes in this strain are linalool, carene, and sabinene.

Orange Velvet Effects

The effects produced by this cannabis are not super powerful. The high is moderate and doesn’t last for long, so it allows users to retain their functionality. It fills smokers with euphoric lift and energy. Consumers become aroused, concentrated, creative, and maintain an increased focus. The kush provides mild body and mind relaxation and is helpful for various neurological complications.

From the medical point of view, the strain is good for alleviating symptoms of the following conditions:

  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Stress
  • Lack of appetite
  • Migraines

As a delicate strain with mild effects, Orange Velvet doesn’t provoke any serious side effects. Occasional negative reactions that may occur include:

  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Hunger
  • Drowsiness
  • Fatigue

Growing Tips

Unfortunately, this cannabis has fallen out of popularity, so the seeds are hard to come by. The cultivators who are lucky to track it down and get the seeds or clipping from mature plants can expect a medium growth difficulty and high yields (1-2 oz./ft2 for indoor and 2-3 oz./ft2 for outdoor gardens.) 

The plants can handle unfavorable growing conditions and temperature changes. The flowering period is completed in 57-64 days, while the harvest time is 73 days after germination. This is a photoperiod plant affected by light changes. As a result, it reaches 60’’-80’’ high when grown indoors and more than 90’’ when grown in the open air.

Orange Velvet Strain Cannabinoids

THC 17.35 - 19.85% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.16 - 0.49% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.18 - 0.67% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.56 - 1.18% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.32 - 0.51% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.34 - 0.98% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.
