Orange Bud cannabinoid profile


Orange Bud grow info: a customer favorite for many decades!

Orange Bud is particularly notable for her yields in ‘sea of green’ (SOG) grows. By using this grow method you will be able to achieve the biggest possible harvest. A SOG grow is quite straightforward and less time consuming than most other growing methods. The strain also thrives in a ‘screen of green’ grow (‘SCROG’). She loves being bent, manipulated and super cropped. Be sure to give her a longer VEG period if you grow her in a SCROG setup.

Orange Bud is ready to harvest in around 8-9 weeks indoors. Outdoors she can be relatively fast as well, making her a good candidate for early autumn harvests. It is recommended to select the fastest flowering phenotypes for outdoor growing and keep the longer flowering ones for indoor cultivation.

The genetics used to create Orange Bud ensure the following characteristics :

  • An easy to grow plant, suitable for all grow mediums and techniques.
  • Fast flowering Sativa dominant Skunk with solid yields.
  • A frosty dense bud structure with orange hairs.
  • Appealing sweet and fruity aroma with a social and uplifting high.

Orange bud performs well in the hands of a new grower and she will do great in the hands of an experienced grower. This is a variety that can give bumper harvests without too much hassle.

Orange Bud cannabis seeds flowering time

We normally recommend a vegetative period of about 4-6 weeks. Being a Sativa dominant hybrid she roughly doubles in size during flowering. When growing in a SOG, it is possible to grow this variety on 12/12 from seed or after one week of growth. When you grow just a few plants per m2 we recommend giving her a veg period of about 6 weeks.

When grown in a SCROG with a single plant we recommend giving her about 8 weeks of growth. This will ensure a massive plant that is able to carry numerous branches of thick and long buds for a bountiful harvest.

Orange Bud can be grown outdoors too, its relatively faster flowering period and small amount of leaves in the buds makes it suitable for outdoor growing. There is less chance of dead leaves due to the high-calyx leaf ratio reducing the risk of bud rot.

For best results, give Orange Bud some high-quality organic soil and a location with a gentle, light prevailing wind. This will make her stronger and more resistant to periods of bad weather. She is known to produce even frostier buds outdoors than indoors because of the lower temperatures which increase trichome density.

The flowering time is about 8-9 weeks. In combination with the recommended veg phase it takes around 12-14 weeks from seed to harvest.

Orange Bud cannabis seeds average yield

Orange Bud produces large harvests of high-quality cannabis; around 400 to 450+ grams per m2 on average. More is possible when the SOG method is used to perfection.
