Strain Integrity

According to Leafly’s description of Orange Juice, ” Orange Juice, bred by Gage Green Genetics, mixes one of their staple strains Joseph (Underdog OG bag seed) with a cross of California Orange and OG Kush. An indica-driven hybrid, Orange Juice erupts with a blast of orange and lemon notes that combine with diesel undertones to create an inviting aroma and a mouthful of sweet earthy citrus. The effects of Orange Juice are relatively balanced, producing a relaxed body with a happy and uplifted head buzz.

And, Leafly’s GSC description, ” GSC, formerly known as Girl Scout Cookies, is an OG Kush and Durban Poison hybrid cross whose reputation grew too large to stay within the borders of its California homeland. With a sweet and earthy aroma, GSC launches you to euphoria’s top floor where full-body relaxation meets a time-bending cerebral space. A little goes a long way with this hybrid, whose THC heights have won GSC numerous Cannabis Cup awards.  

From the OCS website, ” Orange CKS is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain hailing from the Girl Scout Cookies lineage crossed with Orange Juice. It has a high THC potency potential with little-to-no CBD. The buds of this strain are tapered and bright green with fiery orange pistils. Bursting with zesty notes of tangerine and lime,  ”

Note:  It appears Orange CKS may be a proprietary strain of unknown origin.  We attached the two parent genetic descriptions and what we got was something a lot more Orange Juice in taste with the GSC time bending cerebral space effects.

Smoking Orange Juice

Do you like Oranges?  If you do, this is a must try strain just for the smell and taste.

The “high” takes off like a rocketship.  The mental assault is immediate and accelerates with increasing cerebral euphoric surges.  Yep, there’s that brain tingle.  Creativity explosion became a mental lockdown paralyzing us unsuspectingly in mid stride looking foolish standing in the middle of the room.  Reality begins to slip away.  The magic carpet has arrived.

At the end of the first hour, we were a bit more functional.  The intensity after one hour was about 2X stronger than the peak of our last review, Skunk Haze.  Yep, this is all about getting da Bomb.  There is a deep sense of satisfaction.  The recording session blew our minds when self isolated.  For the first hour, it was a magical carpet ride.  The entire experience from beginning to end is about three and a half hours for us.

We were not able to complete our supermarket shopping protocol given the current Covid-19 environment.  We did the walk about and off course the effects were not as overwhelming as our recording session.  On a bright sunny day, Orange CKS provides euphoria for a strong sense of well being, an uplift with a brighter outlook on life over and beyond what the Sun provided, a steady flow of creative musing to entertain and copious amount of smooth flowing energy to propel us forward.  We were energetically inspired.

Strains like this make us believe that the magic of Cannabis is to help us extend beyond ourselves and our 5 physical senses.  There is a mystical element created when all the senses come together to create a view that is both enlightening and rejuvenating.  It is like going home … a place where we all come from.

Activity pairing is dependent on dosing.  High dosage means doing nothing but enjoy the magic carpet ride because you are born to be wild?  Seriously, this strain is for celebrating special occasions, achievements and supernatural chilling.  This strain is the destination and activity.

Clearly, Orange CKS is resonating with us unlike any other strains.  We believe every strain have this potential for the right person.  This is the Cannabis journey of discovery that should makes us strain hunters.  We advocate recording each strain to open a whole new world of perception giving a greater appreciation of the herb and its benefits.  Don’t just party with it, or read about it.  Experience it with self isolation, a trick we are now all familiar with?


Orange CKS by Gage

It has been a while since we tried something this enlightening.  Gage Strawberry Fire OG was da Bomb and one of our all time favourites.  Orange CKS is different but just as impressive.  Strawberry Fire OG gave us a warm healing embrace.  Orange CKS gave us a mystical experience created by fusing euphoric and creative surges.  This is what Cannabis is all about.

THC: 16.8%

Quality: 9.0

Intensity: 8.9

Duration: 8.5

Total: 8.8

Cost:  $40.70 for 3.5 grams

Would we buy this again?  Yes.  On the same order, we also have 7 grams of Aurora Special Sativa for $40.80.  We got twice as much from Aurora for the same money.  The Daily Special Sativa is the table wine and Orange CKS is the champagne we sip occasionally.

On an investment note, it looks like Bruce Linton, Ex-CEO and Founder of Canopy, will be working with Radicle (Gage).  Radicle Cannabis, owned by Ziad Reda and family who founded the Big Bee Convenience chain, operates a 40,000 sq. ft hydroponic facility with an expected yield of 6,000 kg.   Radicle fueled by a true Cannabis enthusiast, Ziad Reda, you don’t really need help.  Don’t give equity to people who whisper sweet nothing to your ears.  Be wary of Visionaries.  So far, their visions have been a disaster.  Look after your employees and share the equity with them and you will have a rewarding and self sustaining healthier lifestyle.  Go slow, buddy … the World is already beating a path to your door.   Your weed is freaking amazing!
