This strain was created by Obsoul33t, a breeder at Franchise Genetics. It's a masterpiece cross between Orange Juice Bud and Girl Scout Cookies. The strain has a fantastic citrus taste and smell, especially once ground. It came second in the Californian High Times Cup in 2015 for best hybrid. The high is both cerebral and body which is a great combination with this strain's amazing taste. It's around a 60% indica and 40% sativa.
Described as ‘#Dankenstein’ in some posts, this is a perfect way of describing the growing trend in Cali of making crazy crossbred strains. This is to satisfy an ever growing need to have new strains. The crazier they get, the higher potency they tend to have. Where’s the limit? With shatters etc. there really isn’t one.

Orange Cookies (AKA Tangerine cookies) is a boutique strain created in California. It got its name from its two parents, GSC and OJ. Bringing the citrus taste and smell to the sweet, world-famous high of Girl Scout Cookies was frankly a stroke of genius. The strain itself is a 60:40 indica-dominant hybrid and it has dense buds which make for perfect grinding. The hairs which cover the strain are also coveted amongst stoners. Breaking into this bud is like opening a fresh orange, and the salivating starts as you roll up your first blunt. Light it and you will get some amazing citrus flavours also.
Orange Cookies Strength
The THC levels of this strain are at around 18%. It's a powerful strain, but it's definitely not as powerful as some of the other boutique strains which are coming out of Cali. For a novice, a small bowl of this would likely wipe them out, but for a seasoned stoner seeking that stronger high, there are definitely other options out there.
Orange Cookies Lineage
This strain comes from the monarch which is Girl Scout Cookies, a particularly fruity, citrusy bud. GSC's parents are Durban Poison and O.G Kush. This is likely where the earthy smell comes from. Durban poison is a Sativa, and O.G Kush is an indica, making O.G Kush a parent of two of GSC's parent strains. This is what gives it the typical kush smells, flavour, and high to this beautiful bud.
Orange Cookies Taste Profile
The taste is pretty much what you'd expect when you smell it, a citrus burst with kushy overtones. The flavours blend together beautifully. Break open this strain, give it a whiff, grind it up, give it another whiff, 420 blaze it. Simples.

Orange Cookies Growing Tips
This is a boutique Californian strain. It will be very difficult to find seeds to grow it yourself. If you can manage to find a cutting of this strain, then you should consider yourself very lucky. As it's such a hard to find strain, if a dispensary does get it in California, you're looking at at least $20 a gram. Some coffeeshops in Amsterdam may have this strain, particularly ones close to the centre.
There is a growing number of Amsterdam coffeeshops who are selling Californian strains. In such a coffeeshop, the price is more likely to be 30-35 euros per gram, which is completely nuts. Once cuttings and seeds are leaked onto the market, these strains will stop being so expensive. Unfortunately, it's very hard to get hold of something like Franchise Genetics' seeds.
