Orange cannabis strains have earned a great reputation for heavy yielding THC rich buds with a uniquely delicious citrus taste and aroma. The origins of orange weed strains lies partly in a 1970’s road trip to California by Dutch Passion founder Henk van Dalen. That strain hunting trip provided some fantastic genetics in the form of Californian Orange. Some European skunk selections also provided high quality genetics for some modern orange strains.
Orange strains of weed are perhaps most well known for the distinctive orange terpene profile which gives a rich, deep citrus taste and scent. But the best orange strains also pack a serious THC rich punch too. You can grow orange sativa strains as well as orange indica strains. Orange strains have been used extensively in breeding, thanks to the high yields, high potency and great taste. This has allowed orange Afghani strains, Asian orange strains and African orange strains. As well as the orange aroma, many growers love the appearance of strains with dark orange hairs.
The Dutch Passion Orange family of cannabis seeds contains some of the most popular orange seeds with home growers. They stand for heavy yielding, THC rich genetics with unique taste/aroma profiles. They are also easy to grow, and available in autoflower seeds, feminised seeds and regular seeds.
Orange Bud is regarded as one of the best orange smelling strains. She is a cornerstone cannabis variety and one of the best weed strains that smell like orange. High yielding orange strains don’t get any better! You can buy Orange Bud seeds as regular or feminised seeds. Auto Orange Bud is the autoflowering seed version which grows from seed to harvest in around 11 weeks. The orange buds and hairs in this strain are covered in sparking trichomes - beautiful bag appeal!
With strong and stable orange genetics, Passion Fruit is a cannabis cup winner which is easy to grow with very high THC levels and a rich citrus taste. She takes around 8 weeks to bloom and grows well in any grow system/grow medium. Orange cannabis strains combine quality with a wide growing latitude!
All the orange cannabis strains have good yields, it’s one of the reasons there are so many repeat buyers. But Orange Hill Special has a reputation for particularly impressive yields, especially when grown under optimised conditions
THC levels tend to be around 20% when grown well. In optimised conditions with LED grow lights and perhaps UVA/UVB supplemental lights, proficient growers will see THC levels over 20% and perhaps up to 25%.
Many of the Dutch Passion orange strains are orange sativa strains, such as Orange Bud. But hybrid orange strains such as Californian Orange can show indica leaning phenotypes. These are often the shorter plants with wide leaf fingers, they deliver a wonderfully joyful high with strong body effects.
Opinions can vary from grower to grower, but the legendary original Orange Bud really is an outstanding sativa orange strain with yields that are well above average. The orange skunk genetics ensure she is remarkably easy to grow. The mouthwateringly sweet taste of freshly picked oranges and very high THC levels complete the perfect package.
How many days does it take to flower orange cannabis? The quickest blooming photoperiod feminised strain is Orange Bud. Some phenotypes can be ready after as little as 7 weeks of bloom. Most orange strains take 8 weeks in bloom. Californian Orange can take around 9 weeks. Auto Orange Bud and Auto Critical Orange Punch can be ready 10-11 weeks after germination.
Many feel that growing organically in soil gives the best taste. Growing in soil with slow release organic nutrients is not only simple, it also delivers a really tangy citrus taste. The experts recommend growing your orange cannabis strains under LED grow lights for the best terpene profile. Optimised lighting conditions without temperature extremes is a great way to maximise citrus terpenes such as Limonene. The blue light treatment is also a good way to maximise orange taste. Those with adjustable spectrum LED lights can cut out red light and only deliver blue light for the last 2-3 days. This boosts terpene production.
If you supply cool grow room conditions, especially in bloom, you may be able to encourage some purple hues in the buds of your orange weed strain. But most of the orange weed strains tend to produce green buds with a white frosty coating.
Currently there are no high-CBD orange strains in the Dutch Passion collection. However, the Dutch Passion CBD seed collection contains some proven high quality CBD seeds. CBD Auto Compassion Lime is particularly recommended for those seeking a high CBD strain with a citrus twist.
