Tangie is a Sativa dominant hybrid strain that’s becoming increasingly popular. It’s won a boatload of awards in recent years and can be found pretty much everywhere on the West Coast and in Colorado. Known for its nice fruity smell, smooth taste, and for delivering a powerful cerebral high, Tangie is definitely a strain for the devoted cannabis smoker.
While the average Sativa strain comes in at 13.5% THC, Tangie has an average THC content of 19%, with the most potent buds climbing as high as 22 percent. This relatively high level of THC is largely responsible for the powerful high this strain produces.
Since Tangie is 70% Sativa, you should expect a high that’s mostly in your head. A few puffs and you’ll be feeling energetic, uplifted, focused, and euphoric. Beneath all that cerebral activity, expect a light sense of bodily relaxation.
Scent & Flavor
Tangie gets its name from the citrusy scent and flavor that reminds a lot of people of tangerines. That fruity smell is complemented by an undertone of skunk. The smells of this bud carry over perfectly into the smoke, which tastes sweet and citrusy.
Expect the standard effects of cotton mouth and dry or red eyes. People who are super sensitive to the cerebral highs produced by Tangie may also experience some uncomfortable dizziness, anxiety, or headaches.
This is a killer strain for afternoon smoking. The Sativa elements will give you an energizing boost to help you get through the second half of the day. Try Tangie when you have a list of things to do, especially if the day’s tasks require you to engage in some creative thinking or problem solving.
It can also be a good strain for social settings, as it will leave you and your friends feeling happy, uplifted, and energetic.
Medical users can find some relief from pain, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. If you have trouble with your appetite, Tangie can also be good at inducing some serious munchies. But for folks looking to treat more serious conditions, you may want to find a strain with more CBD. Tangie’s CBD levels are pretty low, right around 0.09 percent.
Tangie comes to us from the growers at DNA Genetics in Amsterdam. It’s the offspring of California Orange and a Skunk hybrid. This strain will probably remind old school smokers of Tangerine Dream, which was hugely popular in the 1990s.
These plants grow tall, which means that outdoor growing is often a bit easier than indoors. Wherever you grow this strain, most cultivators suggest using soil and plant-based nutrients. The Sea of Green method has also worked pretty well with this strain. When the plants start sending out flowers, expect to see compact buds that are light green in color with a bunch of tiny orange hairs. Tangie buds are usually pretty frosty and resinous.
