Everything You Need to Know About Orange Creamsicle Strain

We live in the future where cars can drive themselves, fake meat tastes real, and weed doesn’t have to smell nasty. When people talk about the aroma of “good weed” they often use gross words like, “skunk” “diesel” and “pungent”.

Seasoned stoners might be impervious to the high and stinky notes that accompany their favorite pastime, but to the rest of the world, weed smells bad! But does it have to? Luckily, no! In this article, we are going to tell you everything you need to know about the (delicious) orange creamsicle strain.

Meet Orange Creamsicle

Welcome to the dessert of weed! This strain will have you reminiscing about the summer days of your youth where a nice popsicle was all you needed to feel alright.

  • Lineage
    • Orange Creamsicle was bred by MGT seeders in California and is comprised of two strains: Juicy Fruit, and Orange Crush and harbors a 60/40 split of Sativa and Indica, Sativa being the dominant component.
    • Juicy Fruit is a Sativa-dominate flower with a creamy finish.
    • Orange Crush is an Indica dominated strain with a zesty bite.
  • Genetic Ratio
    • A textbook example of Orange Dreamsicle’s chemical breakdown looks something like this:
      • 17% THC
      • 1% CBD
      • 60% Sativa
      • 40% Indica
  • THC Content
    • The THC range of Orange Creamsicle can be anywhere from 15-17%.
    • Because of this lower amount of THC, Orange Creamsicle is thought to be one of the best introductory strains out there, this is a weed that will have you energized and not too stony baloney (but, dose carefully to start).
  • Gender
    • As with any weed plant that you grow, you should be able to tell the gender pretty quickly.
    • Male plants will literally grow a pair of balls in 3-4 weeks, and unless you want to cultivate a seed-heavy crop (and you probably don’t), go ahead and treat that weed like a chump and dispose of him accordingly.
    • Most growers are looking for female plants only, ones that have never been fertilized because they make the biggest and hairiest buds.
  • Cannabinoids
    • Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (AKA, the thing that gets you high) 3.9mg/g
    • CBGa (believed to possess therapeutic benefits and act like an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, mood regulator, and appetite stimulant) 6mg/g
    • THCa (slowly converts to THC as the plant dries) 200.8mg/g
    • CBG (similar to CBD though not as abundantly occurring, CBG is a non-psychoactive compound that boasts the ability to combat pain and has been successfully administered in animal studies regarding glaucoma, IBD, Huntington’s disease, and fighting cancer cells) .8 mg/g

Therapeutic Benefits

Good news! Patrons of Orange Dreamsicle have reported that their mood is regulated with use. More specifically this could mean things like the alleviation of stress, anxiety, and depression. It could even help to relieve migraines, chronic nausea, and improve focus regarding creative or analytical tasks.

This particular strain of weed is good for social situations because of its 60/40 Sativa-heavy split. These numbers suggest that a euphoric and creative conversation is in your future due to the nice, yet manageable, head high. But then bam! While your brain is feeling stimulated, the Indica part of this strain kicks in and relaxes the body.

Possible Side Effects

Okay, as with any new strain you try for the first time, please go slow! Some people have referred to Orange Dreamsicle as a “creeper” strain, meaning that it’s slow to start but packs a punch. It’s possible that you might feel paranoid if Sativa and Sative-leaning hybrids aren’t really your thing.

And of course, keep the eye drops on deck and your water bottle full. You may experience dry eyes and cotton-mouth (but it’s also important to stay hydrated regardless of smoking weed).

Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance

When smoked, your tastebuds will be buzzing with notes of citrus and a smooth vanilla aftertaste to finish.

We aren’t kidding about how gorgeous this weed is, the presentation seems almost too good to be true.

Terpines Found in Orange Creamsicle

  • Myrcene- 0.9mg/g

Grow Information

Okay new marijuana farmers, this is for you! Orange Creamsicle is heralded as an “easy-to-grow” strain!

Despite its Sative heritage, it only takes between seven and nine weeks for this gal to grow (indoors). And the yield is pretty high; between twelve and sixteen buds per square meter.

If you are growing Orange Creamsicle outside, the plant tends to prefer warmer climates (around 70 degrees), and humidity.

Whether you are growing it or purchasing it, be sure to take a close look at this little golden nugget under a flashlight to appreciate how lovely weed can be at its finest.
