to search for the oldschool orange skunk we bought 20 female seeds of Orange Bud. all 20 germed and we had no problems so far. later in flower 4 startet to threw some nanners. the others needed 9-10 weeks to finish flowering. now the sad things, only 2 of the 20 are a ok smoke, the others got no flavor and no resin. the aroma is not skunky or fruity orange, its earthy and tastes like kitchen herbs. i am really disappointed because i grew this strain 10 years ago and got 3 keepers from 5 female seeds!! this comment

I had two phenotypes, both tall growing, one had indica like buds with an indica high, while the other was more sativa like. I harvested both in seven and a half weeks, both plants are very trichome covered beauties. Very potent high, you will stay high for at least three hours, with a pleasant come down. Smells of citrus and also tastes like citrus. This stuff will make you giggle, very happy with this strain and will buy again. By the way way, NO hermies, yet, one of my plants was a bit of a mutant, it grew strangely and its yield was not as plentiful as the others, the mutant one was the indica pheno, still, all in all, some truly incredible bud. this comment

Outdoor Grow:

Die Sorte Orange Bud wurde am 49ten Breitengrad kultiviert.

Insgesamt ist die Sorte sehr buschig und vital gewachsen.

Leider ging die Sorte sehr spät in die Blüte, ist dann aber

sehr schnell durchgeblüht und konnte mitte Oktober geerntet werden.

Die Schimmelresistenz war wirklich erstaunlich. Während

andere Genetiken einfach vergammelt sind, stand die Orange Bud

da wie ein Ass. Der Ertrag lag bei ca 100 - 150g (trocken) pro Pflanze.

Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass die Genetik im Gewächshaus erst

ihr volles Potential zeigt.

Das Endprodukt war sehr gut rauchbar. Sowohl die Potenz, als auch

der Geschmack beim Rauchen war sehr überdurchschnittlich gut. Der Rauch

hat leicht blumig nach Orangen Schaalen geschmeckt. Das High war anfangs

sehr anregend mit starken euphorischen Phasen, in denen man sehr gut gelaunt

und redselig war. Am Ende des Rausches wurde man dann sehr entspannt

bis müde.

Draußen kann ich die Sorte jederzeit weiterempfehlen. Einfach Top !


Die Orange Bud wuchs (innen) weniger homogen und eher mostly sativa lastig (schlank und nach oben

gedrungen, mit sehr großen Blättern). Die dichten Blüten waren unter (optimalen bedingungen)

stark mit Harz überzogen. Im allgemeinen wuchs die Sorte in der vegetativen Phase normal schnell.

Der Ertrag war im Vergleich zu vielen anderen Sorten außergewöhnlich hoch. Interessanterweise

gingen einige Pflanzen automatisch in die Blüte (bei 16h Licht) ohne die Photoperiode auf 12/12

umzustellen !! ... hat "Dutch Passion" eventuell ein autoflowering Problem ? Ich empfehle daher

die Sorte mit mindestens 18 stunden licht zu belichten. Das Verhältnis zwischen Blüten und

Blatt-masse war sehr hoch. Dadurch konnten die Blüten sehr schnell geerntet und verarbeitet werden.

Die Sorte benötigte mit durchschnitt ca 7 - 8 Wochen um ernte reif zu sein.


Die getrockneten Blüten haben (nach dem Zerkleinern) sehr stark nach süßlich und nach einer

zitrus Frucht gerochen (eventuell Orange xD). Der Geschmack beim Rauchen war hervorragend und sehr



Die Wirkung beim Rauchen war sehr angenehm und zugleich körperlich als auch Kopf-mäßig stark

entspannend und leicht stimulierend. Der erste Effekt (nach dem Rauchen) tritt nach etwa 10 minuten

zeitverzögert auf. Nach dem Rauchen fühlt man sich im Kopf sehr klar, leicht angeregt und vom

Körper her entspannt an. Während des Rausches nimmt man seinem Körper intensiver war (auch stark

sexuell anregend). Die Wirkungsdauer lag bei etwa 2 - 3 Stunden. Interessanterweise fühlt man sich

am Ende des Rausches (im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen Sorten) noch recht klar im Kopf an. Durch die

entspannende Wirkung könnte ich mir vorstellen, dass man die Sorte auch sehr gut zum Stress Abbau

einsetzen kann. Bei einer stärkeren Dosis (wie z.B durch oralem Konsum) war die Wirkung der Orange

Bud weniger entspannend, sondern stark anregend (trippig) und aufreibend zugleich. Medizinisch kann

ich die Sorte gegen Kopfschmerzen empfehlen.


Die Orange Bud ist für mich eine ausgesprochen gute Allrounder Sorte. Allen Anfänger kann ich die

Sorte weiterempfehlen. Für fortgeschrittenere Grower ist diese Sorte wegen des angenehmen Effekts

und des intensiven Orangen Dufts ein rare Köstlichkeit, die unter optimalen Bedingungen hohe

Erträge und eine hohe Blütenqualität erzielen kann !! this comment

Overall rating 9/10

Really fast grow and bloom. It is its own sort of champion.. Truly old school skunk! It could be one of the bests. It is really fast and easy, also it makes good old school all a round bud. Long compact buds.. and in right hands this mama can be heavy yelder.

Good for beginners! With this plant you can make some mistakes, and experienced breeders can try a great harvests (LST, Semi-Mainlining etc. many +40cm colas from one plant is possible to do with little effort)

The aroma and taste of its own class. this comment
