The indica cannabis strain Orange Kush is known for its sweet yet tangy citrus zest that leaves a hint of orange in your mouth upon consuming. Its buds are dense, generally lime green in color, and exude lots of bright orange pistils that complement its name.
The parent strains of Orange Kush are both hybrids: OG Kush and Orange Bud. It first blossomed under the care of Green Devil Genetics.
The THC content of this strain averages in the high teens, with some crops reaping in at 23%. Its high is typical of many indica strains, creating a peaceful relaxation of both the body and mind, relieving aches and pains while creating a slight numbing effect, and generating the munchies.
Negative effects of this strain are also typical, and include cotton mouth, dry eyes, and in some rare cases, dizziness and headaches if consumed improperly.
The flowering time of Orange Kush is generally between eight and nine weeks.
