Orange Bud grow and smoke review by Cannabis King

Orange Bud® has been one of Dutch Passions top-5 best sellers for many years now.  Some regular customers grow nothing else, it is difficult to beat the much-adored Orange Bud ‘up’ high, the massive yields, the luxury taste, flavours and citrus aromas. 

Since it was introduced this early-1980’s original classic skunk line has proved that sometimes it really is hard to beat the originals.  This week our blog follows a customer grow and smoke review from ‘Cannabis King’ who cropped 250g of dry bud from just two plants.  He gives this strain 10/10 for strength and ease of grow. You can read his original grow diary here on UK420 but you will need to log-in (or register) to see it, but it is worth doing!

‘Cannabis King’ grew the variety in soil with two 400w HPS lights using 11 litre pots alongside some other varieties.  Orange Bud was grown vegetatively for 7 weeks and flowered for 8 weeks.  Here is the story of the grow in Cannabis Kings own words

Orange Bud Scissor Hash, wouldn’t you like some?

Question.  How would you describe the general growth of Orange bud ?

‘It’s a vigorous grower with strong stems and consistent growth, she is very forgiving and can handle nutrients very well, easy for beginners to grow. Because I grew her in a ScrOG net she got 7 weeks vegetative growth and 8 weeks bloom, in hindsight she needed 9 weeks bloom and she would have been properly done and the famous Orange buds will show on her, she stretched to double the size from the onset of the flowering lighting schedule.’

What are the best features of Orange Bud?

‘My favourite features of growing Orange Bud are the real ease of growing, while I was having little problems here and there with my other strains OB just kept on growing green and lush from start to finish and I just left her to do her thing. Grows itself! Other things are how dense the buds are, high yielding and REALLY easy to trim the buds for drying with a very high calyx to leaf ratio, in mid bloom she smells of Oranges/citrus which turns to a delightful old school skunk smell towards the end.’

Orange Bud favourite

This grow highlighted why Orange Bud remains a firm favourite with self-sufficient growers.   She combines all the most important aspects of a successful variety for home-growers.  Yields are very heavy, the weed is strong with a great quality and enjoyable high.  And it’s an easy variety to grow, one of the varieties we would recommend to a new or inexperienced grower.

Orange Bud really is one of Dutch Passion’s best overall varieties and that is one of the reasons she has been a best seller for so long.  If you haven’t tried growing Orange Bud yet then don’t leave it too long before you try her.  The final words are from Cannabis King

“I really like this strain it is an “all rounder” high yields (I managed 250g from two plants), dense frosty buds with lots of trichomes, easy to grow, tastes great and has an incredible high. It is the jar I go for every time.”

  • Planted 2 Orange Bud this year, in glas greenhouse. One right in the soil, the other in 11 L pot. The last one I’ve started with Batmix soil, wich was to heavy, and she was more yellow than green. She got greener when flowering, and turned out really well.
    Both where put outside in the green-house early may, after a little pre-grow fase inside the house. And also got into flowering fase early august. One month before my Skywalker-haze flowerd. (Netherland).
    Harvested the 11L pot 27 september, a little early due to rot. Is drying right now but looks good and smells good.
    The big one I harvest partly. Also due to rot, a problem I’ve alway’s counter in my little greenhouse. So the big nuts are saved by harvesting them, and cut out the peaces with rot. The small ones, are still growing, and will be harvested as late as possible for more amber trigomes.
    This will provide me enough medicine until harvesting next year.
