Oregon Noble is a relatively new cannabis strain. However, this hybrid indica bud definitely packs a punch, and it’s continuing to make a name for itself across the world.
With an irresistible blend of calm and euphoric effects, it’s no wonder the Oregan Noble leaves so many smokers coming back for more! If you’re considering adding this hybrid indica to your regular rotation, stick with us to find out more about Oregon Noble.
Now, let’s take a look at the history of the Oregon Noble, including its genetics and origins.
The Oregon Noble is a hybrid cannabis plant with a perfect 50/50 mix of indica and sativa. Although the Oregon Noble is a 50/50 hybrid, it has a high THC content of 17.5 to 19.5%.
This makes the Oregon Noble a rather potent strain known for giving users that classic giggly, talkative, and relaxed high.
The Oregon Noble has an interesting lineage, and it’s a direct cross between Pine Tar Kush and Gobstopper.
Pine Tar Kush is a remarkable strain. It’s one of very few that is almost completely unaltered from its original genetic makeup. This strain comes from a long line of pure indicas that are native to Pakistan.
In fact, it’s a direct descendent of the Pakistani landrace plants, which grow wild and indigenously and are always either 100% indica or 100% sativa. Pine Tar Kush is well known for its intense sleepy and relaxing effects.
The Oregon Noble’s other parent, the Gobstopper, is a little different. The Gobstopper has a unique berry-like flavor, and it’s INCREDIBLE to look at. The Gobstopper sports a stunning purple color mixed with bursts of green and orange flowers.
It also has a similar, candy-like aroma, and its high is just as incredible! It’s a balanced hybrid with an average THC level of between 14-16%, so you’ll be left feeling awake and refreshed.
With such a unique and powerful lineage, it’s no surprise that the Oregon Noble boasts some pretty incredible qualities itself! The Oregon Noble is currently grown by Cannabeizein, European breeders who specialize in potent, flavorsome plants.
Alphakronik, breeders located in Willamette Valley of Western Oregon, also grow the Oregon Noble.
Although one of Oregon Noble’s parents, Pine Tar Kush, boasts a beautiful purple coat, the Oregon Noble looks a little different.
This classic hybrid strain sports a more modest appearance of forest green flower, with subtle hints of orange.
Depending on the way your Oregon Noble has been cultivated, you may see a brief appearance of classic purple bursting through, with the occasional dark green flower. The Oregon Noble has a very ‘earthy’ appearance, which is classic for most hybrid strains.
The flavor of the Oregon Noble certainly complements its appearance. Earthy undertones are the most commonly reported flavor. However, the Oregon Noble also has a unique fruity taste – grape and peach are the most dominant flavors.
This irresistible blend of warm, spicy flavor, sprinkled with a hint of citrus punch, makes the Oregon Noble a strain you’ll definitely want to try.
Unsurprisingly, those earthy, citrus flavors make up the prominent scent of the Oregon Noble. As soon as you smell this bud, expect your senses to come alive. You’ll be enthralled by its unique scent that takes you on a journey of its own.
Its earthy scent will make you feel closer to the great outdoors, and its burst of fruity flavor will make you feel like you’re about to enter a colorful, tasty twilight zone. The aroma of the Oregon Noble is truly magic!
Now, let’s take a look at the main cannabinoids that make up the Oregon Noble.
There are two main cannabinoids in cannabis: Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC connects with receptors in the brain and works with your body to create the feeling of being ‘high.’
It binds with receptors that control your mood and pain – this improves the sensations you’re feeling and creates an improved sense of well-being.
On the flip side, CBD is a cannabinoid that doesn’t cause a high. The exact science behind CBD is still being researched. However, CBD is thought to work with the brain’s serotonin receptors to improve mood, release endorphins, and increase dopamine.
CBD provides more of the medicinal benefits of cannabis than THC.
The Oregon Noble has an average THC content of between 14-16% and CBD levels of 0.52%-1.1%. This makes the Oregon Noble a potent, psychoactive strain; however, the ratio CBD means the high usually starts off intense and gradually winds down to give users a more relaxed, calming high.
As well as THC and CBD, Oregon Noble also includes the following Cannabinoids:
- CBC: 0.24-0.42%
- CBG: 0.15-0.87%
- CBN: 0.04-0.26%
- THCV: 0.24-0.53%
Terpenes are natural chemical compounds, and they’re responsible for creating the wide range of different aromas and flavors found in different strains of cannabis. Let’s take a look at the terpene profile of the Oregon Noble:
- Pinene: 0.07%
- Borneol: 0.12%
- Myrcene: 0.34%
- Ocimene: 0.01%
- Humulene: 0.05%
- Limonene: 0.12%
- Linalool: 0.04%
- Terpinolene: 0.11%
- Caryophyllene: 0.14%
The Oregon Noble’s unique blend of terpenes like caryophyllene, myrcene, and borneol, creates its incredible range of fruity flavors, like orange, grape, and peach.
