Orange Skunk is a sativa dominant cannabis strain that may also be labeled “The Original Californian Orange Skunk,” but they’re genetically the same. Orange Skunk sprouts arrowhead-shaped buds with lightly colored calyxes and a smothering of orange pistils.
The aroma from Orange Skunk smells fittingly like a flowery skunk, as if Pepe Lepew had gotten perfumed up for a date. The flavor from its smoke brings in the orange essence.
Because of its average-to-lower-than-average THC levels, this strain may be a good one for beginners. It’s also ideal for twisting up into a joint and sharing with friends, as it will take a few hits to get truly lifted off this one. It may work well for minor pains, inflammation, anxiety, depression, or stress, and because it’s an upper, it may increase focus and motivation, too. It is recommended for daytime use.
Common side effects with Orange Skunk include red eyes, cottonmouth, and in some people, headaches.
