For many of us, Agent Orange is a term that pivots the mind towards newsreel images of American military helicopters hovering over thick rainforest, perhaps to a Rolling Stones or Wagner soundtrack. The Vietnam-War era herbicide lends its name to our current favourite bud, but the hybrid’s widely-loved effects will leave you more M*A*S*H than Apocalypse Now.
Anyone who samples this Sativa-dominant hybrid will report its cerebral, mood-enhancing high that works in perfect tandem with a relaxing numbing effect that hits the body after the brain.
This makes it a great strain for those of us who are susceptible to anxiety from pure Sativas or Sativa-dominant hybrids; your excitable mind won’t give way to paranoia and the shakes.
The Indica side of the plant will also aid with any minor aches and pains you might be suffering from, but it’s important to note that this isn’t the best medicinal strain if you suffer from anything more serious than a few bumps and bruises.
As is hinted in the name, Agent Orange has a marked citrus scent, both in the flower and the smoke. Smooth on the throat and lungs, each exhale will leave you with a lingering orange taste on the tongue.
