The Orange taste and smell of cannabis strain are mainly influenced by genetics and terpenes. Genetics are the features inherited from the parent strains, while terpenes are morphological building blocks of the plant. They are basically oil glands in weed plants that give it their flavors and aroma. The combination of genetics and terpenes gives marijuana buds their look, smell, taste and even texture. To get the best taste and scent out of orange buds, experts advise growing this strain in soil because it gives it a better taste.
Growing Orange weed strains in optimised conditions with the best grow lights, and no extreme temperature is the best way to maximise Limonene content in the buds. Limonene is the terpene found in Orange weed strains; it is also responsible for the taste of citrus fruits, including orange and lemon.
