Orange Bud is a pure Skunk strain with masses of orange pistils in its buds. This is an extremely potent and stable cannabis plant for indoor and outdoor cultivation. Big yielding, mostly sativa strain.
Orange Bud flourishes in all grow media and is an easy strain even for beginners to grow. It rose to prominence in the 1980s and 1990s winning plaudits from critics and customers alike in the process. It was bred by crossing two unknown Skunk strains. Indoors the best technique to use in the grow room is SoG (Sea of Green) which will produce prodigious yields of hard, resinous buds where it can produce 500 - 600 gr/m2 in 7 - 8 weeks of flowering. It is also a good selection for cultivating in a greenhouse in higher latitudes or planted outside where the climate is warm, e.g. the Mediterranean region. Northern hemisphere harvests will be ready during October.
It isn't just the colour of its pistils that gives this marijuana strain its name; its clean, sweet citrus flavour is strongly reminiscent of nectarine and ripe oranges. THC production is 16.5% which imparts a potent, uplifting, cerebral high that will suit active types down to the ground. It remains one of Dutch Passion's top 5 best-selling cannabis seeds.

About Dutch Passion
"You don't buy that many seeds a year, it's one area of your life where compromise isn't necessary so choose a seed bank with a long tradition and proven record" - Dutch Passion
In the 1970’s, Dutch Passion’s founder, Henk van Dalen, began collecting and breeding with cannabis seeds which he found in the early Dutch cannabis imports arriving from all over the world. He realised that it was possible to grow your own cannabis and often it was far superior to the often poor-quality, heavily seeded, imported product.
Some of his best varieties were selectively crossed and bred and he soom realised that many people would prefer to grow their own cannabis from seed rather than buy it on the streets.
In 1987, the Dutch Passion Seed Company was formally established. 10 years later, they became the first seed bank to learn how to make feminized seeds, something that many people at the time said was impossible with cannabis. Ever since then, Dutch Passion have been busy trying to create the best cannabis seeds and trying to keep up with customer interest in other varieties of seeds such as autoflowering and CBD-rich etc.
Dutch Passion grow from their own gene bank of original genetics collected decades ago, These days, many newer seed banks simply regurgitate existing varieties/genetics and put a new name on them. Dutch Passion are both proud and fortunate to have their own legendary varieties from the 1980’s and plenty of old original seeds to use for future projects.
Crowned Best Seed bank at Spannabis 2014, Dutch Passion are well known for their sophistication and quality. The Dutch Passion breeders concern themselves with creating and preserving quality, and their varieties have won many prizes in cannabis cup competitions.
