The Cascade Orange lifts mood and energy without stepping into the realm of being racy or panicky. It’s a balanced effect with a strong creative streak.

Maybe it’s because we’re smack-dab in the tangy, juicy pulp of citrus season, but this Cascade Orange from the stellar cultivators at Ideal Cannabis hits every high note for Oregon Leaf.

A cross between Mount Hood Magic and Legend Orange Apricot – bred by old school Oregon breeders Compound Genetics – the Cascade Orange smells like opening a jar of pithy orange marmalade in a Pacific Northwest coniferous forest.

The bright citrus top notes and earthy, piney low-end notes from this pinene, limonene and myrcene-laden herb carry through to the smoke – with almost no terpene degradation on combustion.

The frosty, carefully hand-trimmed nugs showcase bright orange hairs against a light and dark green backdrop.

The buds have a perfect cure and consistency – a slight spongy freshness in between the fingertips, with the ability to break apart and grind smoothly. If you pull it apart with your fingertips, be prepared for your mouth to water every time your hands waft near your face.

The Cascade Orange lifts mood and energy without stepping into the realm of being racy or panicky. It’s a balanced effect with a strong creative streak – perfect for an extra boost to fit in some guitar playing or writing in the waning hours of the evening.

If you like your herb with fruit-and-forest character, you’ll be happy to know that the folks at Ideal Cannabis plan to make this fantastic phenotype a staple of their lineup. The cultivation team was just getting ready to pull down another harvest in the garden when this issue went to print, so keep your eyes peeled for this orange beauty out in the market.
