Mandarin Sunset is an Indica dominant cannabis strain, developed after a successful cross between Orange Skunk and Herojuana strains. Its THC levels average around 24%, making it one of the most potent strains a user can encounter. Its CBD levels are less than 1%.
Mandarin Sunset produces some of the most beautiful buds on the market. Bright green, with purple sugar leaves, covered with contrasting bright red pistils, and a thin layer of amber trichomes, they are a sight to see.
On top of being one of the most good looking strains, it is also one of the most aromatic ones. As the name suggests, the aroma is fresh citrus, sweet, orange, light, and pleasant.
The flavor is spicy, with a hint of diesel, and the same sweet orange notes.
The smoke of the Mandarin Sunset is very light and smooth, which can deceive cannabis users because its high is anything but. This strain is a heavy hitter and needs to be taken seriously right from the first inhale.
The high of this strain is incredibly relaxing right from the start, making your body almost numb, removing pains and aches, uplifting the mood, promoting focus and clarity. Many users report it to be great for an evening on the couch while watching a movie.
Novice users are recommended to take it slow and not to consume the Mandarin Sunset strain above tolerance levels.
