About Orange Velvet
Mystery shrouds Orange Velvet, as it’s a tasty strain that comes from unknown origins, but is believed to be created somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. A 50/50 hybrid of Orange Skunk and something unknown, it’s fallen out of popularity so much to the point that it’s termed as discontinued. Why that’s the case is foreign, because this mild strain offers a taste sensation along with great effects like none other.
THC levels of Orange Velvet can vary a bit, with lows around 15% and highs reaching close to 22%. Previously named “Melvin,” it was later changed to the name we now know it as, probably to increase its appeal. Nugs of this strain smell exactly like an orange creamsicle, with tones of orange, vanilla, honey, earth, and a bit of sourness to it. The taste is far more pleasant, only capturing the yummy flavors that make up the delicious frozen treat.
Nugs of this strain are perfect for beginners and experienced smokers alike, as it provides a slight euphoric lift that’s kept in check. You’ll be happy and calm rather than a giggling mess that’s apparently taken one too many hits. Creativity and focus are vastly improved on Orange Velvet, as users note they can remain engaged in an activity for 2 to 3 hours before the high fades and they return to normal life.
Since Orange Velvet offers a subtle mind and body relaxation as well, it’s ideal for those who need mild pain management. Hitting far less hard than many other hybrids out there, it’s ideal for someone who needs to take the edge off of a headache or unwind after a stressful day at work. Anxiety and depression are easily alleviated with Orange Velvet, and those undergoing chemotherapy will rejoice in its ability to stimulate one’s appetite.
Good luck growing this strain at home, as Orange Velvet has all but fallen off the radar. Those lucky enough to get their hands on it can expect a moderately easy time cultivating it and a high yield once it’s completed flowering.
Orange Velvet can be thought of as a soft and delicate strain, as it brings an uplifted feeling without many of the negative side effects associated with getting high. Occasional pain, PMS, or fatigue will be combated with ease, but those who suffer from chronic pain are better off finding something a little more potent. The next time you see Orange Velvet, buy in bulk as it’s incredibly hard to come by.
