Sweet and tangy, “Orange Chem Soda” is a strain of medicinal marijuana by Prime Wellness that provides bubbly, uplifting effects that won’t fizzle out or go flat on you.

A Bit of Context…

Prime Wellness was one of the first 12 companies to get their license to grow and process medicinal marijuana in June 2017, according to their website.

“From the start, we’ve made clear our commitment to advancing health and wellness and delivering the very best quality products to our dispensary partners across Pennsylvania,” they say on their website. “In December 2017, Prime Wellness secured an operational permit to begin the grow process at our custom-designed, 30,000 square-foot indoor facility in Berks County’s South Heidelberg Township.”

They are a patient-focused brand that specializes in cannabis flower, concentrates, distillate vape cartridges, and syringes, as displayed on their site.

Orange Chem Soda Review

“True to its name, this strain really does taste like orange soda,” XtaSeay said. “It’s head buzzy, but I’d say it’s still more of a indica-dominant hybrid. It’s more like a wavy feeling throughout my head, a sense of ease throughout my body accompanied by a heaviness in my legs.”

I also found the effects to be more cognitive and uplifting, but I wouldn’t go as far as to say it was buzzy. Rather, I found myself feeling relaxed enough to be myself – and if you know anything about good ol’ bug, you know that I’m always bouncing off the walls, naturally.

The flavor of this strain tastes like orange soda to an almost uncanny extent. It even tastes as if it’s carbonated, somehow.

“Pain relief definitely crashes over you with ‘Orange Chem Soda,'” XtaSeay added. “It starts with the tip of your head – which makes you think it’s a headrush at first – but after awhile the feeling creeps all the way down to your toes.”

After giving the strain some time to truly kick in, XtaSeay said he experienced a deep sense of physical and mental relaxation.

The flower itself is beautiful – soft, thick, with orange hairs and a slight dark-green hue.

“The bud has a very spicy, peppery smell,” XtaSeay said. “It’s very easy to work with and has lots of trichomes, which you can see by how glossy and crystalized it is.”

Bug’s Two Cents

I found “Orange Chem Soda” to be refreshing and delightful. The cognitive effects weren’t too overwhelming and the physiological effects were soothing, as well.

The bud is colorful, glossy, fragrant, and dense. The flavor was fantastic, although it did give me a bit of dry mouth after vaporizing (or maybe I was just craving a can of orange soda at that point).

I’d highly recommend this strain to patients looking to alleviate symptoms of anxiety or mild pain. I’d also recommend “Orange Chem Soda” to those who just want to feel uplifted and at peace for an afternoon.

XtaSeay’s Two Cents

“‘Orange Chem Soda’ is good, but it’s mild,” XtaSeay said. “Maybe I’m just not taking large enough hits, but it’s more mellow.”

He also noted how relaxing the strain is but that it takes awhile to truly appreciate it’s effects.

“I’d buy this flower again, but I don’t think it would be my go-to,” XtaSeay said.

Additionally, XtaSeay mentioned he would be interested in trying this strain again as a live resin concentrate or vape cartridge.
