Orange Cookies is a cross of Girl Scout Cookies and Orange Juice, resulting in an Indica dominated plant (60% Indica and 40% Sativa). It is one of the newest strains. It has a moderate THC level of between 12% and 18%, though some growers have reported up to 21%. This strain was first propagated by the Franchise Genetics, which is responsible for many other cannabis strains.
Orange Cookies are challenging to grow. Beginners are not encouraged to try it out because of the possibility of getting low yields. This strain requires great care throughout its entire growing period to get better results. It produces very dense nugs that are prone to mold and mildew. Also, you may need to support it through staking. Pruning excess branches can also help in controlling weight and diseases. But most importantly, monitor the humidity level to keep mold at bay.
The strain grows broad and dark green water leaves and starts to flower after 7 to 9 weeks. It is characterized by medium-sized flowers with spade-shaped buds with varied colors. The spectrum ranges from light mint to sage with golden hues. The nugs are covered with dull orange hairs and white trichomes. As the name suggests, the Orange Cookies have a citrusy aroma and taste. During flowering, the plant produces a pleasant citrus scent that fills the area. And as it dries up, the fragrance quickly changes to tangerines and oranges.
Users of Orange Cookies report an uplifting effect with improvement in creativity. It also induces euphoria and full-body relaxation, making it an ideal choice for relieving stress and improving focus. The mind-stimulating effects make users more relaxed, cheerful, and happy, perfect for treating medical conditions such as anxiety and depression. This Indica-leaning strain is also helpful in relieving muscle spasms, tremors, joint pains, and general body aches.
