What is the best fruit? If you answered oranges, your day will be even better because there are many weed varieties that smell and taste just like them.
Two main factors influence the smell and taste of a cannabis strain: genetics and terpenes. Genetics are the parent plant strains from which they come; Terpenes are the oil glands in weed plants that produce their aromas and flavors. The combination of the two is responsible for most of the ways a plant can look, smell, taste and even feel.
There are many varieties with this valuable citrus smell and taste. If you've never tried one or are just looking for your next favorite smoke, check out these five today.
Agent Orange is a cross between Orange Velvet and Jack the Ripper which should definitely be in your bag if you like oranges.
For one thing, the buds are sticky and beautiful, and if you give them the "let me smell you" print, this can fill a space faster than any dreamsicle candle out there.
For two, the effects usually make for a happy day with an outbreak of that smiley euphoria that is often associated with citrus fruits. So if you use cannabis to feel better about how hard life can be, AO might be the one you need.
It tastes good for three, no matter how you smoke it: flower? Roll up. Blobs? Pass the torch on. Vape pen? * Hit until the light flashes *
Orange Cookies is a lesser known biscuit cross, but still an incredible variety with an orange flavor. Like most strains with a GSC line, it offers a Mike Tyson strike when it comes to potency and effects. However, the orange juice genetics in the cross brings a lighter, more energetic high than most associated with cookies strains.
The majority of people who smoke orange cookies say that this makes them feel happy and relaxed. So if you go to a party or just step on the couch with a friend, this little baby is a big burden for you to bring.
Tangie is a cross between California Orange and a Skunk hybrid that has been around since the 1990s . Year after year it is still one of the most popular varieties on Leafly.
With its abrasive citrus scent and even more abrasive orange flavor, this strain is a real treat for people who are committed to the taste of their cannabis experience. It is also a perfect example of how the terms "indica" and "sativa" cannot predict how you will feel about it.
Tangie's effects are generally described as uplifting and euphoric. To some extent, this is true, but it's worth noting that if Tangie is consumed in large quantities, it can get so strong that you have to sleep it off.
This list would not even be complete without illuminating the delicious mimosa . Mimosa is a cross between Purple Punch and Clementine that looks like the former and smells of the latter. The buds have a beautiful purple and green color with a row of orange hairs that make every mimosa plant ready to picture.
The smell and taste? Here you really get the best out of this burden. Mimosa is so spicy and sweet that it feels like someone slapped your tongue with a bag of orange peel.
As for feeling, most people say that this purple project from Symbiotic Genetics will make you happy, uplifted, and focused. So if you expected these nugs with purple accents to knock you down for the count, think again.
Tropicana Cookies is one of the newest types of cookies to emerge from the GSC family tree . It crosses this famous strain with the classic tangie to produce one of the most fascinating cannabis plants out there.
Aesthetically speaking, Tropicana biscuits are an absolute miracle: the flower is so purple that its nugs are almost black, and they are complemented by a flood of orange hair and thick white trichomes that will delight people who don't even smoke weed . The aroma screams out of the glass with a citrus scent that tastes so orange and sweet that you won't smoke another variety for at least a month.
In terms of effects, Tropicana cookies continue to defy all expectations – this completely purple plant does not offer any sleepy or relaxing effects. Instead, Tropicana biscuits wake you up with a burst of energy that allows you to clean your home thoroughly at 3 am for no reason.
