The Tangie strain has quickly gained more popularity shortly after it was bred in Amsterdam by DNA Genetics. It is a famous remake of the highly popular Tangerine Dream version in the 1990s. As a hybrid cannabis strain, the tangie has already bagged various awards in just 10 months since it was created and has been listed under the most sought-after cannabis strains among smokers.
The tangie strain is significantly Sativa-dominant, which has a ratio of 70% Sativa and 30% indica.
When the DNA Genetics decided to crossbreed the California Orange and the Skunk strain, it led to a refreshing sweet strain they called tangie. The strain has increasingly become popular since its inception, winning 10 different prizes in just 10 months.
The Tangie is among the most potent strain in the cannabis market, with THC concentrations that range between 19% to 22% and with only a 0.1% CBD content. Because of its high THC levels, the effects of the tangie strain is often associated with a strong and instant euphoric high, which then settles into a gradual uplifting and energizing effects.
Once the tangie strain is fully grown, it can be very tall and features small and compact buds with light green hues. This strain also has a generous number of frosty trichomes that have dark orange pistils growing prominently and circling the leaves.
The flavor of the tangie cannabis strain is also relatively the same as its namesake. It features the same citrus – sweet, and with a hint of orange flavor you can taste from a freshly-picked and ripe tropical tangerine. With its distinctly sweet flavor, the tangie strain is also one of the best-tasting cannabis strains in the market.
With its name, it is not surprising that this strain features a distinctive citrusy and sweet tangerine aroma. It smells refreshing compared to the common aromas of other fruity and citrusy strains, which often smells like grapes or lemon.
The tangie strain is most popular in places like Colorado, Arizona, and the West Coast, although there are a lot of clones found in other areas as well.
The effects of using the tangie strain can be best described as uplifting and clear-headed. With its high Sativa, this strain can provide strong uplifting effects, although its high THC concentration makes it ideal for more intermediate and advanced smokers.
Although the strain is Sativa-dominant, it still offers a balanced nature of the Sativa-Indica ratio, which is ideal for medical use. It has potent sedative effects to help patients who suffer in chronic pain, as well as stress, insomnia, and depression. Users also use the tangie strain for anxiety and for treating various conditions such as digestive problems, nausea, and lack of appetite.
Mainly because of its size when fully grown, which can reach around 30 inches to as long as 70 inches, it is most recommended to grow the strain outdoors. Around September to early in October is the best period to cultivate the strain for a more resinous herb. When grown in an ideal environment and cultivating time, the plant can yield around 450 to 550 grams per square meter.
But, the tangie strain can also thrive when grown in indoor environments, although they might take up a lot of vertical space. Also, when growing the strain indoors, it is best to use soil instead of hydroponics.
Another popular way of cultivating the tangie, especially around California, is through a veganic type of cultivation, which allows the plant to more naturally feed on the soil. This type of cultivation process allows the strain to develop a tastier flavor and produce more.
The SCROG (Screen of Green) method is also recommended, especially if you want better tangie strain flowering time and grow multiple colas. For the screens, there are options to use chicken wire or nylon netting with at least five centimeters in diameter to allow enough light to pass through.
Over the years, the tangie strain has earned a spot in the list of high-quality cannabis strains. It isn’t just an award-winning cannabis option, but also a crowd-favorite, primarily because of its potent effects and tasty flavor, which, according to many smokers, is the best-tasting strain there is. However, because of its strong effects due to its high THC content, novice smokers with lower tolerance find it a bit more potent than they need from a strain.
