In-Depth Details: Agent Orange Strain Profile
The Agent Orange strain was first propagated by Mz Jill who has been a cannabis breeder and advocate for over 20 years. She is responsible for other wildly successful strains, including the world-renowned Jillybean strain. Agent Orange was a cross between Orange Velvet and Jack The Ripper and named after the deadly chemical agent by the same name. While it smells a lot like oranges and makes the name fitting enough, Jill also wanted to bring awareness to those affected by Agent Orange, which was used for chemical warfare during the Vietnam war. The strain was named to honor her father, who was an army green beret exposed to the chemical.
Agent Orange is a sativa-leaning hybrid with a great mix of effects that make tackling anything during the day a snap. The strain checks in around 17-23% THC and contains a plethora of sweet, fruity, and earthy terpenes like Myrcene, Terpinolene, and b-Caryophyllene. These terpenes give the Agent Orange strain an incredibly distinct scent and flavor that is easy to detect just by smell alone. Most interesting however is that these cannabinoids and terpenes work together in a phenomenon known as the entourage effect to boost each other's effects. THC is great for mind and body relief, and terpenes are great for reducing inflammation.
Agent Orange's distinct terps make it easy to pick the strain out of a blind line-up. At the most basic level, the strain smells just like oranges. Not orange juice, mind you. Oranges. Fresh ones that are still hanging out in the citrus groves down in Florida. Opening a bag of Agent Orange fills your nose with incredibly refreshing and earthy aromas that remind you of living citrus trees, taking you to the orange groves and dropping you in the middle of a well-tended field of orange trees. When you grind the buds, the scent gets amplified.
The same can be said for the flavor. While it isn't flavored like orange juice, it comes across as very fresh and natural. The Agent Orange strain tastes like an orange grove smells. Wild, earthy, herbaceous, funky, and orangey. That's the full impression, though. If you look at things on their own, the strain sounds a little funky. Agent Orange has an herbl funk on the inhale, though that's quickly taken over by a spicy, peppery smoke that is guaranteed to make you cough. The aftertaste, however, is extremely orange-tinged and refreshing.
Agent Orange flowers are a shining example of beautiful buds. These little spade-shaped flowers throw some extremely vibrant colors. However, the foliage and water leaves on this strain before being harvested are burgundy and black, creating a sharp contrast from the electrical green coloration in the flowers. They range in shades of vibrant, neon greens with bright orange and red pistils. Each one is coated in a thin layer of crystalline trichomes that give the flowers a glowing sheen.
Agent Orange offers some potent uplifting effects that aren't unlikely to cause a nice case of the giggles. While the strain is considered a balanced hybrid for its potent pain relief, it tends to be a little more energetic and sativa-leaning in the mind. With this strain, you can expect an extremely energized and creative sensation along with a deep-seated euphoric bliss. The effects of the Agent Orange strain are great for sour moods, mood swings, and depression, though the energetic, creative, and focusing effects make it a great choice for battling fatigue, social anxiety, ADD/ADHD, PTSD, and stress.
However, the strain is also great for pain management and improving the appetite with its generous, yet soothing body buzz. The body effects of the Agent Orange strain make it a powerful medicine against nausea or a lack of appetite as well as headaches, migraines, and minor aches and pains. The one thing to keep in mind is that this mix of body and mind effects can be intense or anxiety-inducing for novice cannabis users, THC-sensitive patients, and patients who plain don't agree with sativa strains. Always start with a low dose and work your way up to see how a new strain will affect you. You may also experience dry eyes and cottonmouth while using the Agent Orange strain for your medicinal needs.
The Epic Remedy's Agent Orange Strain Review
Agent Orange is a strain I've had a handful of other times at a handful of random locations over a handful of years. Every time, my experience was different. Agent Orange has become one of the most counterfeit strains of all time, just like Blue Dream and AK-47. That's why knowing exactly where your genetics came from makes all the difference in the sampling of a strain.
The Epic Remedy got their cut of Agent Orange directly from the original breeder back when it was in circulation. It's the F2 of the original cross bred by MzJill, so I was eager to try the actual version of this strain and see if I'd ever actually had the genuine Agent Orange before.
Turns out, I had not. I knew the strain was supposed to be orangey, but I didn't really think that weed could taste like this. I'm usually not huge on fruit-flavored strains (unless it's banana-flavored, that's a different story. Lookin' at you, yellow Laffy Taffy.) but I was super impressed with the orange tinge in the strain. It didn't taste like the fruit - it tasted how the whole orange grove smells. Earth, flowers, and all.
I had a pretty good indication it would be an intense strain from the first moment, though. As I went to photograph the strain, I found myself staring in awe at the intense color on the flowers. Each one is an extremely bright shade of green. A glimmery blanket of trichomes and the contrast between the green flowers and orange pistils is always impressive. Honestly, these buds are so pretty they look fake.
They smell fake too. Those terps are 100% natural, but man. That funky orange tree farm smell? Unreal. The bag smelled like orange-flavored candy, leaves, and earth. When I ground the buds up I found that the strain's scent just became extremely amplified, and more and more orangey.
All that said, I was excited to try it as soon as I saw it. I was really impressed with the effects, too. Agent Orange had me feeling pretty groovy after like half a hit. I felt pleasantly disconnected but still fully functional and I went about my day tackling business like there was no tomorrow. It's a great strain for keeping a level, focused, and energetic headspace while you through your day. It made socializing MUCH easier for me, too. It even soothed and relaxed my body, allowing me to get through all my chores without falling victim to fatigue and sore legs.
The strain was pretty impressive across all fronts. I'm disappointed that I didn't have the real-deal the first time though, since this strain seems to help me medicinally quite a lot. It also feels pretty frickin good, too. Seasonal-depression-after-the-time-change WHO? Not me, not today!
