About Mandarin Sunset
Mandarin Sunset is a slightly Indica-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis. First grown in Colorado, USA, this strain’s inception is attributed to Ethos Genetics. Although Ethos Genetics is absolutely the originator of this strain, it’s highly likely a local growery near you is producing this wonderful strain under a different brand. Mandarin Sunset is a cross between Orange Skunk and Herijuana. Mandarin Sunset is so impressive that it was especially chosen by Ethos Genetics to help spawn a new line of hybrid strains under the “Mandarin” name. Strains like Mandarin Jack, first grown by Ethos Genetics, would not be possible if it weren’t for this wonderful strain. Mandarin Sunset is a wonderfully potent strain, packing an average THC concentration of 23% which makes for an enjoyable smoke session on a lazy afternoon.
Mandarin Sunset plants produce flowers with an incredibly rich color palate akin to the sunset it is named for. Users are often drawn to this strain in the dispensary on bag appeal alone, as these buds are wonderfully colored with mint green hues accented by deep purple innards and sugar leaves. The hairs that wind themselves around these buds are more of a deep red than they are orange, which help give the bud a wonderful color contrast. In addition, these buds are coated with a fine dusting of trichomes that are amber-colored.
They produce an incredibly bright and airy aroma of fresh citrus and other fine tropical fruits mixed with a bit of spice. The flavors most users report tasting when smoking a bit of this bud include citrus, a bit of diesel, and spices.
Because this strain’s aroma and flavor are often considered to be light, some users consume a bit too much of this strain. If you’re one that gets hooked on flavor when smoking, taking it slow with this strain is the name of the game. If not, you might find yourself incredibly high before you even realize it. Mandarin Sunset produces a slightly Indica-dominant high that will have you relaxed for hours on end, yet focused intensely on the television.
Some find that their aches and pains evaporate with ease after a bit of Mandarin Sunset is consumed, others find the strain causes them to become quite euphoric and happy. Mandarin Sunset is sure to affect everyone a bit differently, but it should absolutely be at the top of your list if you’re someone that enjoys an incredibly flavorful smoke.
