What is the Tangie Strain?
Tangie is perhaps best known for the orangey taste of the California orange from which it is derived. It has risen in popularity all over the west coast including California and Colorado as well as parts of Arizona. It has this distinctive citrus taste and smells with a tropical twist to the flavor since California orange is one of the parents. Tangie comes from a long line of winners, and it is no wonder that it is also leaving a mark in the cannabis world arena.
As you might have guessed from the parent’s background and naming, the Tangie strain was first coined in California way back in the 70s which means it had to survive the vicious Reagan’s war on marijuana and other drugs in the 80s. After a long exile in Amsterdam the weed capital of the world, it returned to the west coast and was a hit again.
The Skunk #1 adds the Indica characteristics of the strain and is dominated by the California Orange strain which brings in the majority sativa effects. The name Tangie is a tribute to another legendary strain called the Tangerine Dream Strain because they have a similar sweet and sour taste.
Appearance, smell, and flavors
You will know it is tangie because it grows to a medium height of 50 inches at maturity and shoots off that unforgettable pungency. It has medium green leaves and a significant number of the fiery orange pistils covering them. All of this is crowned with white hairy trichromes that hold large quantities of THC, terpenoids and other beneficial compounds.
Taste-wise, the Tangie strain will be a thriller for your first time with an orange like juicy taste with highlights of the sour and the sweet of the strains combined. It has as much as a 22 THC percentage which is pretty impressive for the multiple award winner of over ten cups in the same year.
Once you learn its smell by heart, you will be in a position to pick it out from a crowd like a pro. The smell perhaps best prepares you for the sweet and sour orangey taste with hints of green pine which can be overwhelming at times. The feeling of the weed itself is a nerve-racking experience that will leave the tongue and airways throbbing with excitement.
