Similar to its warm citrusy flavours, Orange Creamsicle is a sativa-dominant hybrid that was bred under the warmth of the California sun. Hinting at its juicy flavour through its name, Creamsicle was initially developed with taste in mind. The original growers had emphasized combining the best aspects of two highly coveted strains: Orange Crush and Juicy Fruit. With both of the parents having a strong emphasis on their own flavours themselves, Creamsicle was able to strike a balance between the two, making it the perfect choice for the tokers who enjoy the taste of something fruity and creamy while getting high.
The sativa-dominant nugs give its users a signature wave of creamy citrus flavour alongside a dazzling and euphoric high. Orange Creamsicle is an excellent choice for novice and casual smokers as it carries a moderate range of 15-18% THC. With this amount of THC, users can expect to experience an uplifting high that will cause little to no fatigue or couchlock. For those who have tried Creamsicle, the experience has been described as a creeping high that doesn’t show itself until a few puffs later.
When it does creep in, the high is described as mellow, creative, and uplifting all at the same time. Creamsicle is the perfect strain for those who are looking to dig deep into their reservoir of creative juices and still retain some energy to be creative in motion.
Appearance, Taste And Aroma
Combining the best attributes of Orange Crush and Juicy Fruit, Creamsicle is a dense and tall plant, carrying a strong structure and a sizable amount of heavy colas as well. The nugs of Creamsicle are jam-packed with bright orange pistils and several densely packed neon green leaves.
As you probably already guessed from the name, Creamsicle not only has the power of refined citrus flavour at its fingertips, but it also has a hidden creamy vanilla core to it. When opening a bag of Creamsicle, the citrus aroma will fill the air around you, making you come back for more. On the exhale, a creamy vanilla core mixed in with juicy sharp citrus flavours rolls smoothly off of the tongue until you’re left with hints of vanilla and orange.
While Creamsicle can satisfy the flavour-conscious cannabis connoisseur’s needs, it also has several benefits for people who rely on cannabis for medical reasons. Since Creamsicle is a hybrid, it carries some of the benefits of both the sativa and indica strains. Its mellow and relaxing effects can alleviate symptoms of stress, depression, panic, and anxiety. The strain’s somatic effects can also be used to soothe mild aches and pains, acting as an anti-inflammatory agent as well.
