A unique and delicious flower from Dutch Passion’s skunk collection, Orange Hill Special is Orange Bud x Californian Orange. A 50/50 indica/sativa fruit bowl of a strain, with 21% THC.
Heritage & Genetics: Orange Hill Special from Dutch Passion is a potent combination of two major flavor bombs, Orange Bud (with its strong Skunk #1 parentage) x (the now classic ‘80’s strain) California Orange. A 50/50 hybrid, she has gone through 6 generations of breeding to produce a very stable, flavorsome phenotype that is easy to grow. 3rd prize winner in the Bio category at the 2015 Highlife Cannabis Cup, she remains very popular today.
Flavor & Aroma: Like fresh orange blossom, the aroma of Dutch Passion’s Orange Hill Special is heavenly and sweet. You will taste her sweetness and spice, along with lots of citrus (of course!) She has inherited her awesome flavor from both sides of her parentage, but Orange Bud also adds some serious skunky strength. On the exhale you will have a lovely earthy aftertaste that is soft on the palette.
Effect: It’s the sativa that you will feel first with Orange Hill Special. Kicking in hard and fast, she’ll give you a head-high that is forceful and very energetic. As she builds, the indica effects come to the fore. You will relax into a deep body-buzz that almost guarantees couch-lock and munchies at higher doses. A lovely, deep stoned effect will finish off your evening. Best for the late afternoon on sunny days, when you know you don’t have to go anywhere anymore and can kick-back and relax.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow Characteristics: Short and sturdy with lots of bud sites, Orange Hill Special is pretty laid-back and doesn’t demand too much from her gardener, though she’ll appreciate extra feeding when flowering. Of all the Orange strains from Dutch Passion she produces the best yields despite her lack of height, thanks to her her large, dense tops. The finished bud will be frosty, covered in orange hair and will be relatively easy to manicure. Grows well indoors, outdoors and in greenhouses.
