About Orange Peel
Orange Peel, like you might have guessed from the name, is an oily, potent strain that gives off the aromatic punch of a freshly peeled orange. The strain brings a skunky flavor to the table to cut the citrus sweetness, like a mix of herby earth with a spicy exhale. Some negative reported effects may deter some users from trying Orange Peel, but so long as you dose it right and stick to nighttime use, this Sativa-heavy strain (90/10) has a lot to offer.
The breeders of Orange Peel have never revealed themselves. Therefore, the exact lineage of the strain is not known beyond its apparent Tangerine Dream genetics. The other parent must be another citrus strain judging by the flavor profile of their child, probably a Sativa-heavy strain since the result leans so far in that direction (90/10). Though information is in limited supply, the Orange Peel produces a beautiful result from whatever its genes happen to be, with its neon-green, bright-toned, fluffy nugs, covered in decadent orange hairs and sand-colored crystal trichomes. It’s like a green puff coated in a thin layer of gold.
The strain’s flavor profile is rich, sour, and earthy. The citrusy terpenes are immediately apparent, giving the strain a bright tangerine flavor. But as you smoke, it becomes a deeper flavor, mixed with herbs and earth. On the exhale, the strain even brings in a kick of pepper. Keep in mind that citrus is nature’s natural energizer and you’ll get a sense of how Orange Peel will affect you.
The first feeling will be a fast-hitting rush of euphoric energy. People start blissing out on Orange Peel immediately. That feeling is followed by creative focus and motivation, giving users the desire to go down their list of chores and hobbies like a champion multi-tasker. That energizing cerebral property is great for those who suffer from sluggishness and productivity-destroying migraines. However, a word of caution for those suffering from anxiety: Orange Peel can create feelings of paranoia and anxiousness if you’re already prone to them. Dose the strain based on your experience level with THC in the mid-20s.
If you can handle Orange Peel, though, it’s a famous, if tight-lipped strain when it comes to getting hyped up for work, energized, focused, hungry, and free of distractions. We recommend it more for late afternoon/evening work since it can be a lot to handle, but if you like the peppery orange herb profile and peaceful, focused effects, the strain is a showstopper.
