Citrique is a relatively new strain, arriving as part of a second wave of new citrus-family hybrids bred since widespread state legalization began. The slightly sativa-dominant hybrid is reminiscent of some of the classic Cali Orange varieties of the early 2000’s.
Citrique’s flavorful lineage hits a peak with an orange-lemon skunk punch to the taste buds. A virtual holy grail for terpene hunters seeking the perfect citrus profile, it rests somewhere between Super Lemon Haze and Tangie…with a little extra spice mixed in.
Citrique's rainbow-like buds’ appearance match the strain’s wide range of pleasurable effects. If you’re a fan of ChemDawg or Skunk Haze, Citrique is a must try. It’s very even keeled, almost a perfect 50/50 sativa/indica - genetics clearly inherited from parents who both share the same 50/50 genetics. This is a rare occurrence in the context of cannabis breeding. Despite being categorized as sativa-dominant, Citrique is closer to what is often referred to as a “twilight stimulant” - essentially meaning it has the cerebral blast of a full sativa, without any of the unwanted anxiety.
With an average THC percentage of 22-25%, Citrique is very potent and comes on fast. Expect an intense cerebral euphoria at the onset, which settles into a creative tranquility - followed by a gentle transition into full relaxation and slumber. Patients often describe Citrique as a “go-to” for treating a wide variety of conditions such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, arthritis, and muscle cramps.
Citrique is reminiscent of the southern California sunsets from under which it hails. The orange hues and purple frame showcase nature’s artistry while invoking the serene sounds of the ocean below, so consider this very pleasant strain the next time you’re looking for the perfect complement to a sunset stroll.
First deemed an OG Kush phenotype, experienced breeders eventually took a closer look at the unfamiliar buds and agreed this identification to be inaccurate. The neon orange hairs and lean bud structure has almost no resemblance to the OG Kush family. It was determined that Citrique is a California native, born from crossing Lime Skunk with Orange Valley OG.
