The sativa genes of OG Kush and the indica genes of Orange Bud were blended to form Orange Kush, allegedly an indica-dominant hybrid (reports on the sativa/indica ratio of this strain are unreliable at best). The flavor is tangy and citrusy while the smell has strong, sweet notes of orange. The buds have lime-green leaves and bright orange hairs to match the name. THC levels are known to top 17-18%, making this one of the strongest strains on any market, legal or otherwise. CBD, on the other hand, is very scarce, less than half of 1 percent, much too low to suggest Orange Kush as good treatment for seizure disorders and other problems that can be alleviated with CBD. The effects of this strain certainly hint at its indica leanings: powerful euphoria, deep physical relaxation, happiness, sleepiness, and a potent case of the munchies. That alone makes this a great tool in treating eating or wasting disorders, but Orange Kush is also a good choice for patients who suffer from anxiety, depression, ADHD, inflammation, migraine headaches, muscle spasms, and aches and pains. Negatives may include dry eyes and cottonmouth. This strain is most popular in Arizona and the Pacific Northwest.
