About this Hybrid Strain
The Zeta OG cannabis strain is a slightly sativa-dominant hybrid. It’s a cross between OG Kush and the popular S.A.G.E strain which stands for Sativa Afghani Genetic Equilibrium. The Zeta OG strain has been reviewed to provide relief from headaches and nausea as well as pain and inflammation. Some consumers have reportedly used it to help with anxiety or depression as well.
The camouflage-green nuggets of this strain have short coiled leaves rich with brown pistils. Its trichomes can give it a frosty glow. Breaking the buds apart releases pungent odors of blueberry, diesel fuel, and menthol. These flavors mix into a unique taste that might be a bit disgusting at first. But the saving grace is a sour blueberry aftertaste that is both tart and pleasant.
Zeta OG THC levels often fall between 20-28% and it’s been reported to speed up thoughts. This was good for some reviewers in finding solutions to problems and thinking outside of the box. Some reported mundane tasks like doing the laundry were more interesting. Yoga, pilates, dance, and martial arts were all reported to be more fascinating.
A first whiff of Zeta Sage’s flowers offers some astringent, diesel-like fumes. A closer inspection picks up on some faint notes of blueberry. Grinding up or picking apart Zeta Sage’s piecey buds gives off a hashy, incense-like odor, possibly due to the influence of OG Kush. When it’s combusted in a pipe or a joint, the strain’s harsh flavors tend to merge in a thick, acrid smoke that may sting the sinuses. On the exhale, this smoke carries a diesel taste with some sour, fruity undertones. Zeta Sage wastes no time in getting to work and begins to exert buzzy, head-focused effects soon after it’s ingested. Within a few minutes, smokers may feel an increase in blood pressure in the head, marked by some pressure around the temples and a possible flushing in the cheeks. These sensations are followed up by an uptick in consumers’ cerebral thinking, with some concepts or ideas taking on a new dimension or intensity. Similarly, thoughts may jump from one to the next in associations that might not make much sense to others who aren’t similarly under the influence. Zeta Sage’s ability to amplify the user’s stream of consciousness can make it a great way to stimulate conversation in social settings. Alternatively, it can be put to use for work on complicated problem-solving tasks or as an enhancement to boring activities like doing the dishes.
Orange Zeta Strain
Orange Zeta is a cannabis strain with a lineage that’s shrouded in mystery. We know one parent strain is Zeta, however, the other remains unknown though it’s believed to be from the Orange family.
Its scent is earthy and similar to diesel, with sharp notes of citrus and a bit of ammonia in its flavor.
THC levels tend to stay around the low 20’s with Orange Zeta.
Many fans of this strain have said the effects have been long-lasting, and some have experienced a small boost of energy and motivation on days when it was seemingly hard to get moving. Some have explained that this strain doesn’t increase focus, rather, it has left their mind in a flow of thoughts that changed easily and could leave them distracted. Despite this, some say they used Orange Zeta to fight chronic fatigue, mood swings, symtoms of depression, stress, pain, and appetite loss or nausea.
Orange Zeta is yet another powerful Cannabiotix strain. It’s not nearly the same citrus smell you might remember from the Tropicanna strain (Issue #22 Intro), it’s totally different. This has more lemon zip, and fermented orange with a magnetic potency you only find in nail polish remover, gasoline, paint, vinyl, and acrylic nails. You know, that pungentness that grabs your congested nose and opens it right up. The smell alone is hypnotizing. The citrus flavor rides the back of your mouth as the smoke enters your lungs. And as you exhale this beautiful flower, you taste the Earth and orange zest again. That’s what’s up!
Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 60% Sativa / 40% Indica
THC: 22% – 24%
Orange Zeta is a rare slightly sativa dominant hybrid strain (60% sativa/40% indica) created through crossing the infamous Zeta with an unknown member of the Orange family. Even with the lack of information about its heritage, Orange Zeta is a breeder and patient favorite thanks to its super bright flavor and long-lasting and lifted effects that are perfect for a subtle boost on those days when you just can’t seem to get going. The high starts with a rush of cerebral effects that fill your mind with an almost frenzied sense of energy and euphoria. You’ll feel unfocused and slightly hazy, just amped to get up and moving without any real plans for what you’re going to do. Thanks to these super energizing effects and its high 22-24% average THC level, Orange Zeta is said to be perfect for treating those suffering from conditions such as chronic fatigue, mood swings, depression, chronic stress, migraines or headaches, and appetite loss or nausea. Orange Zeta has a vibrant sour orange flavor with a potent kick of ammonia upon exhale. The aroma is of earthy citrus and sharp orange with a touch of diesel as the nugs are broken apart and burned. Orange Zeta buds have small piecey bright neon green buds with lots of thin light amber hairs and a coating of golden tinted chunky crystal trichomes.
This strain can also have profound physical effects that become apparent after a few hours. Waves of palpable relaxation may radiate out through the core and limbs, helping to soothe any tight muscles and banish any jitters that may have come with Orange Zetaonset. While it’s not totally incapacitating or couch locking, this body stone has the potential to sap the consumers’ motivation. Nevertheless, its mental acuity lingers around, allowing for extended concentration on passive pursuits like reading, playing cards, or just kicking back and binge-watching. Orange Zeta eventual combination of body and brain stimulation makes it a great way to add an edge to activities that involve complex coordination like dancing, hiking, or even sex. Because of its decrescendo in energy levels, this strain is recommended for consumption during the afternoon or evening.
