Orange Hill Special grown under LED by Tang
"Appearance. Some fantastic looking trichome rich buds. Under the microscope there is just so many of them all right next to each other, the buds are very dense too. A lighter green with some really lovely dark orange to brown pistils."
"Aroma. At first I must admit I was a little disappointed, as I thought that the Orange Hill Special was quite hazy and often all I can find around Brighton is haze strains so I must admit i'm a bit fed up of them, having said that I do usually love a good haze so I shouldn't really complain, just I wanted to try something a little different. When breaking up the buds a more rounded citrus aroma develops, there is a real sweetness about this too not so much of it once ground but the slight hazy acrid sour/sweet thing going on. "

"Flavour. The flavour is really nice, very citrus and earthy with a sweet and funky twist, anyone who likes the citrus flavours will love Orange Hill Special."
"Effects. Here is where the Orange Hill special comes into its own and has quickly become a strain I absolutely love. The effects for me are amazing, as a 50 – 50 it is perfect for patients during the day who need pain relief and want to get on with doing things, its very interesting and very creative. Id describe it as mainly a body up and a head medium but not soaring . There are a number of benefits for me including pain relief, my pain has gone from a 6 or 7 down to a 3. the two main things I notice is how orange hill special gives me creativity and helps lift my mood and makes me smile!"
"Comments. I very much enjoy medicating with Orange Hill Special and have to say I think this is my favourite effect of all of the Dutch Passion strain's I have been lucky enough to try."
