Orange Kush is a hybrid, created by the cannabis growers Green Devil Genetics. By combing the genetics of Orange Bud and OG Kush, the result was a tasty and sweet cannabis strain. Known to uplift moods and calm anxiety, this bud is pest and mold resistant, giving the growers something else to smile about. Sweet, citrusy Orange Creamsicle flavours, perfect for hot summer days, but a damn fine choice to toke on the waning days of winter.
A day or two before my order can in, a buddy of mine invited me over to have a few tokes of Orange Kush shatter. This session gave me a bit of an idea of what to expect when I had the bud. I was immediately impressed by the awesome orange ice cream flavour and just how mild this strain was. The shatter buzz was quick and delightful. If I had a "Relax" button, this shatter found it. The walk home was windy and chilly, but I was grinning and rubbing my hands in anticipation for the actual bud.

After I picked up my parcel, I smoked Orange Kush pretty heavily until I figured I had best set the bag aside and leave myself a few budlets to review. High tolerance and all... but sometimes I am a glutton, smoking because I like to smoke pot. Having Fibro does means I toke a lot. If I had to guess, my consumption is three times as much as it used to be. More, more often and with longer sessions. A few years ago I would only smoke three bowls after work in the evening. But with the fibromyalgia sending all manner of pain signals, all the time, my consumption increased to deal with the fibro pain. I have said many times that I should switch over to vaping and leave smoking behind. Considering the amount that I consume, I think I will have to make that switch sooner than later. My only beef with dry herb vaporizers is that they always need to be recharged when you are needing a hoot.

My bud review session for Orange Kush was another one that I had been looking forward to doing. Even after sitting in the bag for over a week, it would still cling to itself in the buster. Cracking open the buster and inhaling the smell of freshly milled Orange Kush, I could tease out sweet and earthy notes. Making sure The Zeus Smite was fully charged, I began my session.
As The Smite warmed up, I began pulling tokes so I could get that first taste of vaped terpenes. It doesn't take long for the Smite to reach the vape temperature, and the flavour burst forth by the fourth pull. It still boggles my mind that A Kush strain can actually taste like Orange Creamsicle. The Kush notes are in there, but not as strong as other strains, but the orange flavour lingers in the nose. As I finished the chamber, my mood had improved to a lighter, calmer mindset.
On the heels of the still warm first chamber, I packed another and sat back to feel the buzz slowly take over my anxious mind. With the cold wind snapping in the air, I hunkered down on the deck and toked away. The warm tasty vapour was easy and felt pleasant in the lungs. My mind wandered, no longer focusing on the winter chill, but the warmth and peace establishing in my conscious. I smiled as the Orange Kush did its job, so well and so efficiently.
After a pause, I came back to pack and toke the third chamber. The busy family life happening around me is a comfort of its own. The solitude that I experienced in Edmonton was horrible and very lonely. Even as a guest and friend this is an improvement over being alone for days on end. This is a far cry from the rockstar lifestyle I had imagined I would have when I was a teenager. Life gives what it does and you have to flow with it. As I took long deep hits from the Smite, I reflected that smoking and toking awesome strains of cannabis is still pretty damn rockstar. By the end of the third chamber, my muscles had relaxed, my mind was free from worry, and everything was all right in my world for another little while.
Now to rate this strain: Orange citrus notes are very present in this strain, but the lovely Kush notes refused to be dismissed. The overall taste was sweet and inviting, making it easy to overindulge. The effect is typical for an Indica, it will make you nice and sleepy once the buzz has tapered off. I also want to say it has been good to re-visit these buds. Almost like returning to a quiet meadow to sit and wonder, inhale nature (mind the mosquitoes), and exhale the tension. During this review, my mind swirled with kind and peaceful thoughts, nudging away the anxiety, bringing in light, and the gift of a good nights' rest. This batch of Orange Kush is well worth 5/5 for looks, and 5/5 for effect and buzz. I would definitely buy this again.
