Sativa Indica

Effects & Usage



Dominantly Sativa at a staggering 70%, Orange Bud (ORB) is a delightful blend of two original Skunk varieties meticulously crafted by Dutch Passion in the 1980s. While its THC content ranges impressively from 16% to 23%, the strain maintains a balance that is neither overwhelming nor underwhelming.

This multiple-award-winning cultivar is a suitable choice for both seasoned enthusiasts and newcomers to the cannabis scene.


The Orange Bud experience is distinct and engaging, beginning with a swift and refreshing mental clarity that tingles the senses. Users report an almost immediate uplift in mood, accompanied by a surge of creative energy that sparks the imagination. This makes it ideal for artistic pursuits or brainstorming sessions.

It’s also noted for its potential to inspire creativity, providing mental stimulation that can break through barriers of artistic block or lack of focus.

As the high progresses, it evolves into a full-body relaxation that, while potent, doesn’t typically lead to lethargy or couchlock. Instead, it maintains a comfortable balance, allowing for relaxation without restricting the ability to engage in activities. This combination of heady invigoration and physical ease defines the Orange Bud onset, making it a favourite for daytime or evening use.


Orange Bud is a versatile strain that helps manage stress, anxiety, and fatigue. It can alleviate chronic pain, stimulate appetite, and promote a carefree perspective.

Side effects

While Orange Bud is cherished for its uplifting effects, it’s important to note that it can cause dry mouth and dry eyes, which are common with cannabis use. Users should stay hydrated and use eye drops if necessary.

On rare occasions, it may cause slight paranoia or headaches, especially in those new to cannabis or if consumed in large doses.

Taste & Smell


Orange Bud boasts a fragrant bouquet of citrus and floral notes, with nuances of nectar, orange blossom, and a hint of spice. Its flavour follows suit, with a succulent citrus zest complemented by sweet tropical undertones.

Adorned with vibrant orange hairs and a crystal coating, the buds offer a visual treat mirroring their zesty name. You may want to try the Tropinica Cookies strain for a similar fruity flavour.



Descended from a lineage of Colombian Gold, Acapulco Gold, and Afghani, Orange Bud carries the legacy of the 80s Skunk varieties. Over the years, the Dutch Passion seed bank has perfected this cultivar.

Its prominence has been solidified through decades, cherished for its consistent quality and the energetic lifestyle it complements.

Growing information

The Orange Bud is a grower’s delight, yielding dense, resinous nugs with fiery orange pistils, particularly flourishing in a Sea of Green setup. Although medium in growing difficulty, even novices will find this strain rewarding, with its Skunk heritage ensuring stable and bountiful harvests.
