Orange Cookies strain is an indica-leaning hybrid offering a relatively high average THC level of around 21%. It’s known for its happy and energetic high that can even make you quite talkative, making it perfect for social gatherings. Orange Cookies tastes amazing as well, with notes of sweet citrus and orange.
If you asked the average person walking in the street what their favorite baked goods were, one of the most common answers would surely be “cookies.”
The taste of a warm, soft, maybe even chewy cookie is one of the great delights in life. It is so good, in fact, that the taste profile isn’t limited just to baking – marijuana growers want some of their own.
The cookie family of marijuana strains seeks to create the ultimate cookie taste in marijuana; with origins lying in Girl Scout Cookies and evolutions spinning off into all kinds of different flavors, the Cookie family has as many strains as there are different types of cookies.
However, one strain that descended from Girl Scout Cookies is something a little bit different; Orange Cookies. Let’s take a look at this strangely named strain, what it tastes and smells like, and what you can use it for.
What Is the Orange Cookies Strain?
The Orange Cookies strain belongs to the famous lineage of the Cookies strain, made famous by Girl Scout Cookies and all of its other cousins.
Orange Cookies’ origins seem to lie in the unexpected question of ‘what would cookies and orange juice taste like?’. Though there is some question as to its real source – whether it is a cross between Girl Scout cookies and Orange Juice, or if it is made from Forum Cookies instead – the fact remains that Orange Cookies is a fundamentally unique strain, both in its effects and its flavors.
Despite its strange history and even more unusual name, Orange Cookies won 2nd Best Hybrid in the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup. This is not surprising, as it contains very high levels of average THC when compared to other hybrids. Orange Cookies is a powerful hybrid with in-depth effects, a unique flavor, and a smell that you just won’t be able to find anywhere else.
The effects of Orange Cookies are pretty typical of its indica heritage as, despite its hybrid classification, it exerts pretty strong indica effects on the user. The initial steps of the high settle in very quickly, offering a powerful, energetic feeling in the brain. This is then swiftly accompanied by a healthy body high that is both relaxing and invigorating at the same time.
