Agent Orange Marijuana Strain
Agent Orange Marijuana Strain appropriately derives its name from its aroma and flavor, being of freshly cut oranges and citrus herbs. Though a hybrid, its appearance looks a tad more indica as a well-cultivated batch will have hues of light and dark purples scattered throughout its forest-green buds. It’s pistils are a striking burnt orange amid the sea of deep buds, though not as bright as an actual orange as we might be mislead to believe.
THC levels of Agent Orange usually hover between 13-16%, with CBN and CBD both around 0.2%. Some consumers of this strain have indicated it produces an alert but manageable high. Despite Agent Orange’s sativa-dominance and cerebral effects, it has also been known to induce hunger, so having munchies nearby is a must. It also is reported to create a minimal body buzz, so couch-lock is rarely an issue and normal, daily tasks may become seemingly easier to complete, social anxiety may fade, and activities whether alone or with friends, can become more interesting and enjoyable for some users.
However, be careful to ingest according to your personal tolerance with Agent Orange. In higher amounts, some have indicated it can cause dizziness or anxiousness. Red eyes and dry mouth are common side effects so have some eye drops and a drink handy.
Combine Orange Skunk with Jack’s Cleaner and Space Queen, and you get Agent Orange – no, not the Vietnam-era pesticide, but rather the medical marijuana strain. Agent Orange also known as “Agent O,” a sativa-dominant hybrid with a 75:25 sativa/indica ratio, Agent Orange produces an uplifting cerebral high ideal for depression, anxiety, and migraines.

With THC levels up to 25%, it definitely one of the most potent strains around; it’s a very effective medication for many people. Agent Orange is a fun choice for everyday living that medicates without overpowering.

With a noticeable orange flavor and a rich lineage that guarantees its value, Agent Orange marijuana offers a genotype with both indica and sativa qualities, making it one of the top hybrid marijuana strains out there.
| Thankfully, the Agent Orange strain is nothing like the tactical-use defoliant war chemical it was named after.
As you probably know, Agent Orange was an herbicide mixture that America used during the Vietnam War; it was used to remove forest cover and crops, and an estimated 20 million gallons were used in Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam from 1961 to 1971.
Anyway, let’s take a look at this potent strain and learn all about its effects, flavors, aromas, and even – if you are so inclined – how you can grow it yourself.

What is the Agent Orange Cannabis Strain?
Agent Orange weed was created by TGA Genetics, and is a cross of Jack the Ripper and Orange Velvet (a well-known strain with a smooth, citrusy intensity). It is full of therapeutic terpenes and cannabinoids, and while it may not be the strongest cannabis on the market, it gets its name from its delicious orange taste.
It is a sativa dominant (75%) hybrid with high resistance to diseases and pests, and was designed to be as close to the flavor, aroma, and appeal of a fresh orange as possible. Bred as a hybrid with high sativa elements, Agent Orange weed offers an interesting blend of self-motivating sativa properties with a pleasant addition of relaxing indica effects.
With this unique blend – combined with its fresh, bright flavor – Agent Orange marijuana is a great daytime strain to use just as you are beginning your normal routine. Primarily utilized in this way by those who struggle with mental disorders like stress and depression, it can also be useful as a mild pain treatment thanks to its calming and therapeutic effects.
Agent Orange Aroma, Flavor and Aрреаrаnсе
The very first thing you will notice upon getting a whiff of Agent Orange weed will be the smell of, erm… oranges. However, this isn’t the smell of just any boring old orange juice or artificial orange substitute – this smells like the real deal.
Realistically, it is the terpenoid profile of the strain that is responsible for its remarkable smell; the fruity citrus mixture of lemon and orange is a joy to behold, and the actual smell of oranges can vary between overt sweetness and the tart complexity the emanates from a small tangerine.
In a sense, Agent Orange cannabis smells like what you would imagine a fresh orange to smell like – even with the pungency of the citrus oils that compliment it. Behind this initial aroma is the more general flavor of citrus, as well as a cloying sweetness that punctuates underneath.
The flavor of Agent Orange is remarkably similar to its initial aroma, though there is an odd umami quality to the taste which is unlike any other orange-flavored strain you’ve ever enjoyed before.
