The Sour Tangie cannabis strain is a classic, especially with its elevating and creative buzz. It is one of the best cannabis choices for smokers who love citrusy aroma and flavors. But more than its flavor and smell, the Sour Tangie strain is well-known for its varied medical and therapeutic properties, especially in inducing a strong sense of euphoria and creativity.
The Sour Tangie is often regarded as the best cannabis strain to loosen you up in time for a social event. Check out more about this impressive strain and its benefits.
The Sour Tangie cannabis strain was bred using two impressive and legendary parents, the Sour Diesel, which is considered as one of the classic Sativa hybrid strains, and the Tangie, which is another famous Sativa hybrid. Both parent strains are well-known for its intense effects, especially when it comes to the euphoric and mental high it provides.
But instead of being just a copy-cat of its parent strains, the Sour Tangie has become impressively unique. It boasts the same instant head rush as its parent strain. However, once the buzz settles, it will shift gradually into a boost of creative energy that will inspire you to get up and start doing what you need to do for the day. And once the creative energy subsides, it will then be followed by a friendly and giggly euphoria, which makes the strain perfect for social events.
The Sour Tangie is mostly Sativa, with an 80:20 Sativa to Indica ratio, and contains an average of 21% of THC and only 0.2% to 0.4% of CBD, which means it’s one of the most potent strains you can find in the market.
Appearance-wise, the Sour Tangie strain is unique, especially with the fluffiness in its feature, which is not common in cannabis strains. Most of its unique physical characteristic is due to the massive trichomes that cover that buds as well as the orange pistils that comes with it.
Overall, the appearance of this cannabis strain can be best described as cotton filled with a wide range of coloring that is reminiscent of its Tangie genetics. However, the buds boast vibrant green coloring below that pistils, which shows the strain’s true parentage.
In terms of taste, you can expect what the name Sour Tangie implies. The strain features an intense citrus flavor, although it resembles more of an orange taste instead of lemons.
The first puff of the Sour Tangie strain will give off a tart sweetness but then settles into a more complex flavor with a distinct tangy sourness. You can also expect hints of diesel flavor and the kind of sourness that is like the taste of sour candies.
One of the most noticeable properties of this cannabis strain is its distinct smell, which is a strong, bitter, and citrusy aroma that immediately covers your senses. The smell of the strain will even get stronger once you opened the buds. It boasts a unique acrid quality with strong diesel and sourness smell.
Once the strain is burned, the distinct smell would be akin to a cooked lemon with notes of fragrant flowers and tangerine. In some cases, the strain will have a vague skunk smell as well, which is reminiscent of its Sour Diesel parentage.
The Sour Tangie cannabis strain is highly popular around the Oregon state, especially in Portland, Beaverton, Eugene, and Bend. It is also widely used around cities all over the US, including Seattle, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Helena-West Helena, Oklahoma, and Denver.

The Sour Tangie strain grows extraordinarily quick and tall, which makes the growing space an issue, especially when cultivating the strain indoors. When growing the strain indoors, regular pruning is recommended. Meanwhile, when cultivating the plant in an outdoor environment, the critical part is to make sure that plants are getting enough sunlight as the buds will only grow on sun-facing colas.
While the Sour Tangie cannabis strain is clinically considered Sativa dominant, a lot of cannabis smokers have admiring comments about the powerful hybrid effects of the strain. Many of them thank the heavy influence of the creative and energy boost from the strain’s sour diesel parentage and the strong sense of euphoria from its Tangie strain genetics.
