Since moving to Seattle I’ve been on a conquest to find the best strains in the cannabis game. Thus far, I’ve fallen in love with multiple: Chocolope, Purple Punch, Dutch Treat, and now, my latest love, Orange Cookies.
Orange Cookies is a hybrid cross between Orange Juice, an indica-dominant hybrid, and the famous GSC, which is known for its full-body high and pain-relieving qualities. It retains a strong aroma of citrus that explodes every time you break the nugs apart in a show of its diverse terpenes. Orange Cookies delivers a smooth high that’ll put you in a world of comfort without necessarily putting you down for the evening. In fact, I smoked this and went on a Target adventure for hours.
When I smoked Orange Cookies, I initially thought it was Super Sour Diesel (the nugs were in the same bag, labeled according to their position in the bag). So the whole time I’m smoking the joint I rolled, I’m thinking “Wow, this tastes a lot more orangey than I remember SSD tasting.”
I also questioned the high. Super Sour Diesel usually provides alerting, energetic euphoria, but this strain was making me feel more and more relaxed with every puff.
I was feeling very stoned—yet comfortable. It made me want to explore with music playing in my ears, so I headed to Target and had an Orange Cookies-induced adventure. It’s a great strain for activities of that nature. Whether you’re walking around Target or just having a casual stroll through the park, this is a great strain for a chill excursion.
With ratings ranging from very good to exceptional, Orange Cookies has been deemed a fan favorite by Leafly users, as indicated by these reviews:
“Orange Cookies has to be the tastiest bud i’ve tried so far. One of my favorites without a doubt.”
“It’s My all time fav! The taste is 100% identical to the smell and feeling is amazing. Perfect to be honest. It’s a strong Active High, Just as I Love it!👑”
“A friend once told me, “Once you find it, you’ll just know it’s ‘the one.’” Strain after strain, most absolutely wonderful, but nothing that really popped out at me. Until Orange Cookies. As already said numerous times, smells like an orange, and tastes like it smells. Exciting head/body combo. Goofy and happy, until I try stand up, then I’m swerving like I just had to many drinks. Uplifting and enchanting like a good Christmas movie. If Christmas dinner were in an orange grove. Fun to take pictures of. Photogenic. Pretty. Way prettier than me. Smells like oranges too. Show me someone who doesn’t like that smell. I eat an orange every morning just so my hands smell like orange. It stays all day, even after multiple washings. I’m tempted to try Orange Cookies using orange juice as the bong liquid… Hmmm”
The Orange Cookies I smoked was from Uplifted Farms, a craft cannabis farm in Salem, Oregon. However, there are plenty of other reputable producers of Orange Cookies—Jungle Boys, SubX, and Pistil Point (see below)—that can get you hooked up. Just check Leafly to find out where it’s available nearby.
