At RQS, all of our strains are bred to exhibit the finest characteristics to satisfy both growers and consumers. But in 2023, one variety stood out above all the rest—Orion F1.

As one of the first F1 hybrids ever released, Orion F1 showcases unprecedented vigour, uniformity, and production, all while racing to harvest in around 10 weeks. These traits immediately caught the attention of our legion of fans and customers, and have spurred the popularity of our groundbreaking F1 hybrid selection.

Read on to acquaint yourself with everything that makes Orion F1 so special, then pick up some seeds for yourself to sample the best variety of the year.

Orion F1: A Major Feat in Cannabis Breeding

Whether you associate the name Orion with the constellation or the mythical Greek hunter, you’ll soon identify it with the F1 hybrid variety from RQS. The result of meticulous inbreeding, Orion F1 derives from Blue Mammoth Auto, Blue Dream, and Amnesia parent lines, making for a fierce specimen in the grow-op, and a delectably potent one in the stash jar.

As one of the highest-yielding cultivars in our F1 lineup, Orion never sacrifices quality for quantity—it delivers both in spades.


Flavor, Aroma, and Effects of Orion F1: Fresh Flavors and Relaxing Euphoria

Orion F1 is a veritable terpene bomb, expressing high levels of myrcene accented by medium levels of farnesene and ocimene. This terpene trio results in a flavor that is at once sweet and refreshing. Users will certainly pick up on its fruity, candy-like sweetness, but a fresh pine twist prevents the taste from becoming cloying.

In terms of its high, Orion F1 is all about delivering relaxing euphoria. Boasting exceptional THC levels, alongside the aforementioned terpenes, Orion F1 wraps users in a soothing embrace that, when used in moderation, won’t lock you to the couch. Instead, you’ll experience hours of creative bliss. Spend the evening daydreaming, chatting with close friends, or listening to your favorite albums. Given its high potency and stoning constituents, Orion F1 is perhaps best saved for afternoon and evening use, though its initial euphoric rush can provide a late-morning boost as well.

In addition to recreational use, Orion F1 has won the favor of holistic cannabis users, as it provides a long-lasting mind-body high that helps to take the edge off of tension—both mental and physical. When used in larger amounts, its effects can become more soporific, allowing users to gently drift off to sleep.

Growing Orion F1: Strong and Mighty

In addition to its unique flavor and wholesome effects, Orion F1 really stands out with impressive growth. As a high-octane autoflower, plants max out at a reasonable height of just 65–80cm, making them highly suitable for cramped indoor spaces, balcony grows, and guerrilla operations. Despite their small stature, these plants are seriously abundant and fast to deliver the goods. Taking 65–70 days from germination to harvest (with a lightning-fast flowering stage of 35–40 days), Orion F1 produces massive yields that will have your jaw dropping to the floor.

Best of all, each seed you sow of this variety will grow into uniform plants that exhibit the same structure and take the same amount of time to reach harvest. This allows growers to optimise production and maximise light exposure to their crop without needing to train—although some LST can help to push Orion’s yields even higher.

All of this means that even beginners to cannabis cultivation can achieve exceptional harvests of potent and aromatic bud. On the other hand, veteran growers can push production to the max, achieving numerous harvests over one growing season. The choice is yours with this versatile variety!
