About this Hybrid Strain
The word "Zest" is a noun used to describe a food ingredient, referring to scraping the peel of citrus fruits. It is also a verb, describing enthusiasm or energy. Both meanings are quite fitting for this uplifting sativa with a zesty-orange flavor. It is believed that Zest was originally bred by NorStar Genetics by crossing Cali Orange Skunk with Alcatraz OG.
The Zest buds are long, with wavy lime-green leaves. Long orange pistils are scattered throughout, with a thin layer of amber-trichome hairs covering the buds. The aroma and flavor is rich, with orange-citrus and cedar, and leaves a spicy-ginger aftertaste.
The dominant terpene, Limonene, not only is believed to be the one responsible for the zesty-orange flavor, but experts believe it is in part responsible for the reported energetic cerebral blast users are feeling. User's desiring more concentration take note, as Zest reportedly yields a laser like focus. Still having significant Indica ancestry, Zest is still reportedly helpful in keeping the muscles and nerves relaxed and may be helpful with chronic pain and tension related disorders. Some reviewers recommended Zest for users with insomnia, who are looking for a source of energy that won't leave you staring at the ceiling at night. Wake and bakers may also love Zest, as some users found it helpful in starting their day.
