Tangie is a sativa dominant hybrid, with 70% sativa and 30% indica. The strain pays tribute to Tangerine Dream, a strain that was popular in the mid-1990s. It is a cross between a Skunk strain and California Orange. It has a THC level ranging from 19% to 22% and a CBD level of just 0.09%. The strain has won numerous times at the Cannabis Cups and it once won 10 prizes in 10 months.
Thanks to its citrus heritage, Tangie has an aroma similar to tangerines, and is clearly distinct from similar strains that smell of lemon or grape. It has small and compact light green buds with orange hairs, and they are covered with frosty trichomes.
Thanks to the sativa, Tangie has an uplifting effect and the cerebral characteristics include euphoria, creativity, focus and happiness. Thanks to its relatively high THC level, it is probably more suitable for an experienced user.
It also has a number of medical uses thanks to its balanced nature. Its sedative effect may help with pain, stress, depression and insomnia. Some have said that it can also help with digestive problems, a lack of appetite, and nausea. The side effects include a dry mouth and red eyes, but no more than usual.
Tangie can be found in numerous dispensaries and seeds are available from DNA Genetics, Tangie’s seeds are available in regular photoperiod and auto-flowering versions. The plants grow tall in search of sunlight for the first five weeks and the flowers tend to be pungent and resinous.
Due to its height, it is recommended to grow Tangie outside. You can use the SCROG method of growing or top the plants to make a bush shape that produces better. If you are growing indoors then you should use soil and not hydroponics.
It is also possible to grow this strain using veganic cultivation. This eliminates nutrients made from animal by-products. The nutrients derived from plants leave no residue in the soil and allow the cannabis plants to feed from the soil more naturally. This can produce better tasting plants and higher yields.
