Tangie Strain Genetics
Claiming first prize in the 2013 High Times Cannabis Cup, Tangie feminized marijuana seeds from the Big Head Seeds seed company comes from impressive stock with fans of the iconic Tangerine Dream feeling right at home with these marijuana seeds. Purpose bred to emulate this highly sought-after phenotype, this citrus strain is the offspring of two time-tested hybrids, with a genetic profile dating back to the heyday of commercial cannabis.
California Orange, a classic sativa-dominant phenotype, is responsible for Tangie feminized marijuana seeds’ delicious flavour and energising influence. Skunk #1, another old school cannabis cup winning strain and the genetic cornerstone of countless cannabis hybrids, further augments these uplifting effects, making it the perfect party plant.
Tangie Strain Terpene Profile
Just like California Orange and its precursor, Tangerine Dream, the Tangie cannabis strain takes its name from its sunkissed citrus smell. Caused by high concentrations of limonene and myrcene, these strong orange accents carry through to the plant’s exotic flavour, which mixes tropical fruitiness with an unmistakable tangerine taste.
Alpha-pinene and caryophyllene provide the plant’s herbal finish, making this sweet and sour hybrid the optimum choice for fans of fruity strains like Mango Haze and Orange Cream.
Tangie Strain Effects
Its mixed heritage has given Tangie cannabis strain an energising impact that makes it ideal for shared enjoyment and social butterflies. As a sativa-dominant strain with a high THC level of 20-25%, its approach is mentally focused and powerfully cerebral.
Artistic individuals will appreciate the Tangie strain’s stimulating qualities, which evoke a powerful sense of happiness, fuelling creativity and creative inspiration. These uplifting effects are replaced by a relaxing, indica-typical high in the later stages, allowing users to unwind and destress.
Tangie Strain Medical Benefits
THC is known to stimulate appetite receptors in the gut and brain, which makes high THC strains like the Tangie strain useful for digestive problems and a lack of appetite. These medical benefits are complemented by the presence of myrcene; another hunger-boosting compound famed for its sedative influence. Myrcene-rich strains like this one are also great for treating insomnia.
