About Orient Express
Orient Express is an interesting and somewhat mysterious Sativa-dominant hybrid. It’s the product of incessant crossing by world-renowned seed bank Ace Seeds. This international cannabis company has offices and grows on every continent, making it hard to pin down exactly where this strain was first bred. Ace Seeds specializes in the preservation of landrace genetics, including strains like Vietnamese Black. In order to create this wonderful hybrid, the brilliant minds at Ace Seeds crossed Vietnamese Black and China Yunnan. With a mild average THC concentration of just 15%, this strain can be used by beginners without fear during just about any time during the day.
Like most Sativa-dominant flowers, Orient Express buds are long and narrow. Often resembling peppers, they are described as “piecey” and will likely break apart with just your fingers. These minty green buds are covered in long hairs that vary in color from green to bright orange. The surface looks like an untouched ski slope, coated in an incredibly thick layer of milky-white trichomes. The aroma is sure to alert your neighbors on what exactly is going on next door, as it reeks of pungent kush and skunky earth with a bit of spicy herbs mixed in. The flavor is a bit more tolerable, however, as many have reported it tasting like a balanced blend of its parent strains. Expect to taste spicy herbs mixed with a bit of skunk on the exhale.
The effects you’ll feel after smoking Orient Express are quite similar to other almost-balanced hybrid strains, receiving a myriad of effects that are sure to relax both body and mind. The high builds as a subtle body buzz quickly relaxes your body and alleviates tension in your muscles. Any aches or pains you have are sure to crumple under the weight of this heavy high. At the same time as your body is relaxed, your mind will be rapidly expanding to make room for all the happy thoughts and emotions that are being experienced. This euphoric feeling will elevate your mood and have you feeling like you finally broke out of that funk for good this time. As negative and recursive thoughts fade into the background, you might find yourself getting a bit sleepy. Orient Express has reportedly helped those who struggle to fall asleep find some peace as it’s known to get a little stoney and sedative on the fadeout. Orient Express has been successfully utilized for treating symptoms of depression, pain, stress, nausea, and migraines.
