Are you a big fan of Kush cannabis varieties? Orange Kush has been around for a while, but this flower is worthy of a taste. Not only does this hybrid feature a delightful orange peel aroma, but it provides a gently sedative experience that can make it easy to kick back and relax. If you’re hoping for something tasty and practical, this upbeat bud is the way to go.

Strain details

Kush strains are some of the most popular on the market. While contemporary Kush varieties have been cross bred and hybridized over many decades, legend has it that their roots like in cannabis cultivars native to the Kush mountain region in the Middle East. Today, some Kush strains are more famous than others.

While Orange Kush certainly doesn’t have the reputation of its more famous parent strain, OG Kush, this bud tends to be one of the most beloved on the shelf. OG Kush was crossed with Orange Bud to make Orange Kush, a moderately potent flower that tends to produce between 13 and 24 percent THC. When grown with expert care, Orange Kush can get quite strong.

Perhaps taking strongly after Orange Bud, this flower tends to produce a sweet and fruity aroma. As the name suggests, Orange Kush expresses notes of citrus and fresh-peeled oranges. Like many Kushes, however, this strain can also feature some pungency and a base of tilled earth and wood.

The Orange Kush experience

Orange Kush is a hybrid strain that can lean toward the sedative side. However, in general, this flower is considered relaxing and uplifting. Some may find that it produces a bit of a sleepy experience and is often recommended for a lazy afternoon or the evening time. Perfect for winding down at the end of the day, the aroma of this flower alone can bring a smile to your face.

However, this bud is often beloved for its happy and peaceful attitude and stress-relieving properties. Having some snacks handy prior to breaking out Orange Kush is recommended, as hunger is a significant side effect of this bud. An appetite boost and a euphoric mood are accompanied by a deep and lasting muscle relaxation.

It’s recommended for novice consumers to stick to Orange Kush samples with under 15 percent THC. When your dose is too high, you might experience some negative side effects like dizziness and paranoia. Those prone to THC-induced anxiety may want to start slow with this strain, testing out a puff or two before diving in further.

Why do people use Orange Kush?

Orange Kush would be an excellent strain to bring a long while watching a sporting event. This strain is great for enjoying leisure activities that don’t require a lot of get up and go. Still, something like an easy hike or flat bike ride would likely be enjoyable after a little taste. Though, don’t be surprised if you find yourself ready to curl up on the couch and call it a day.

Medical cannabis users pick up Orange Kush for two primary reasons: stress relief and help to fall asleep. Orange Kush is a way to find quick relief after a difficult day and many may find it helpful for letting go of night-time worries. This strain is also popular for relief from mild to moderate aches and pains, especially those that keep you up at night.
