Mellow in nature and a favorite variety of Agent Orange, Aberdeen is a fantastic bud to turn to if you are looking for an easy going high that often leads to fits of giggles and good conversation. By crossing Orange Velvet and Jack the Ripper, Canadian growers at Aphria bring together bright flavors and uplifting effects in one delicious bud.
The moderate THC levels of 14% to 15% on average give this strain a consistently low edged demeanor. Fans of Agent Orange already know that the flavors of this strain are hard to beat, throwing together every citrus fruit one can think of and pairing it strong blue cheese and diesel aromas that linger with the smoke. The thing that sets Aberdeen apart is the surprising mint flavors that accompany the orange tang and sharp cheese flavors. These nugs are olive green with bright orange hairs and powdery amber trichomes.
Aberdeen offers a fast acting, instant buzz that starts in your head with an uptick in joy and euphoria. After just one hit you’ll feel that upbeat, giggly sensation making its way to your limbs, eventually relaxing your body into a super chill state. The tingles that wash over you bring with them a rush of happiness that gets you in a chatty, silly mood. This strain is great for first time or novice users as its effects remain fairly level and rarely become overwhelming.
Medicinal users love Aberdeen for its ability to soothe aches and pain with the numbing properties it provides. It is also highly beneficial to those who suffer from mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, chronic stress, or bipolar disorder. The uplifting bursts of energy and happiness offer relief from even the most trying symptoms.
There’s a reason this variety is a favorite amongst seasoned and novice users alike. It’s not just great tasting with pleasant effects, it is also fairly easy to grow. This is recommended for intermediate growers, however once you’ve heavily topped your plant, it becomes a much simpler process and with the help of an intermediate or advanced grower, newbies can probably tackle this strain as well. With a flowering time of 7 to 9 weeks and a very high yield, this plant is a self-blooming beast if kept in outdoor conditions of 68-80°F or if trained properly indoors.
If you enjoy a soothing high that doesn’t weigh you down, but will still have you sinking into your chair in utter bliss, then this offshoot of Agent Orange is a great choice. Aberdeen offers stellar flavors, a nice mellow buzz, and an exceptional grow.
