Agent Orange is a highly toxic herbicide that was developed in the middle of the last century and was famously used in the conflict in Vietnam. However, it seems this awful stuff was sprayed across the tropics, killings large swatches of jungle and tens of thousands of humans along the way. An odd name choice in name for a cannabis strain, it may be a nod to the United State’s fond use of equally toxic herbicides, specifically Paraquat, to combat marijuana fields in Mexico. However, I think we can all agree that Agent Orange is a much cooler name than Paraquat OG.
