Orange Bud is particularly notable for her yields in ‘sea of green’ (SOG) grows. By using this grow method you will be able to achieve the biggest possible harvest. A SOG grow is quite straight forward and less time consuming than most other growing methods. The strain also thrives in a ‘screen of green’ grow (‘SCROG’). She loves being bent, manipulated and super cropped. Be sure to give her a longer VEG period if you grow her in a SCROG setup.
Orange Bud is ready to harvest in around 8-9 weeks indoors. Outdoors she can be relatively fast as well, making her a good candidate for early autumn harvests. It is recommended to select the fastest flowering phenotypes for outdoor growing and keep the longer flowering ones for indoor cultivation.
The genetics used to create Orange Bud ensure the following characteristics :
Orange bud performs well in the hands of a new grower and she will do great in the hands of an experienced grower. This is a variety that can give bumper harvests without too much hassle.
Many repeat growers of Orange Bud cannabis seeds claim the main reason they love her so much is due to the uniquely sweet, citrus skunky terpene profile. The rich scent is appealing and attention grabbing, making you want to squeeze the oily buds and enjoy the penetrating and gloriously enjoyable aroma. These are some of the most powerful, feel-good buds you will have ever enjoyed smoking/vaping. The great scent of juicy, freshly picked nectarines is one you will never forget.
Orange Bud is known for its active, social cerebral high. It gives the smoker a feel-good high which is very happy and uplifting. It is a strong variety with THC levels of around 15-20%. The strain is good for stoners with active lifestyles. It will get you through the day or evening.

We normally recommend a vegetative period of about 4-6 weeks. Being a Sativa dominant hybrid she roughly doubles in size during flowering. When growing in a SOG it is possible to grow this variety on 12/12 from seed or after one week of growth. When you grow just a few plants per m2 we recommend giving her a veg period of about 6 weeks.
When grown in a SCROG with a single plant we recommend giving her about 8 weeks of growth. This will ensure a massive plant that is able to carry numerous branches of thick and long buds for a bountiful harvest.
Orange Bud can be grown outdoors too, its relatively faster flowering period and small amount of leaves in the buds makes it suitable for outdoor growing. There is less chance of dead leaves due to the high-calyx leaf ratio reducing the risk of bud rot.
For best results, give Orange Bud some high-quality organic soil and a location with a gentle, light prevailing wind. This will make her stronger and more resistant to periods of bad weather. She is known to produce even frostier buds outdoors than indoors because of the lower temperatures which increase trichome density.
The flowering time is about 8-9 weeks. In combination with the recommended veg phase it takes around 12-14 weeks from seed to harvest.
Orange Bud produces large harvests of high-quality cannabis; around 400 to 450+ grams per m2 on average. More is possible when the SOG method is used to perfection.

Try growing Orange Bud in a SOG setup, this is where she really thrives. The plants double in size during flowering so make sure to plan accordingly. You will not need very long VEG periods if you grow her in a SOG. If you want to keep her very compact and bushy make sure not to give her more than a week of VEG growth and grow her in the same size container from the start, between 4-11L pots will be enough for decent sized plants.
