Tangie is cannabis evolved. The flavor and aroma of this strain are strikingly similar to a crazy sweet, freshly peeled tangerine. A top-shelf strain, expect this bud to be a bit on the pricey side. However, it’s worth the splurge at least once. The Tangie experience truly stands apart. This is a fantastic connoisseur strain.

Tangie has quickly risen to star status as a top-notch strain. This flower is a revamped version of Tangerine Dream courtesy of DNA Genetics. They have every right to be proud of this sativa hybrid, too. In a 10-month stint, Tangie earned 10 distinct cannabis awards.

The exact genetics of Tangie are unknown. It is thought to be a cross between California Orange and Skunk No. 1. Though Tangie is potent, this flower’s THC levels (20%) aren’t what make it an award-winning strain. The taste and scent of this strain are what make it stand apart.

The aroma of Tangie is unreal. Remarkably, Tangie smells exactly like a freshly peeled tangerine. Sweet with a strong citrus aroma, you’ll be amazed that you’re smelling a cannabis strain at all. The Tangie flavor is also strongly citrus and sweet, though you may find some herbal qualities shine through on the exhale.

This flower is primarily sativa, meaning that you can expect an energizing mental experience. Upon first taste, you may notice a familiar pressure or tingling in your sinuses and the front of your head. However, Tangie is notorious for being a creeper.

Within a half an hour, more pronounced sativa effects and a slight indica body high start to kick in. It’s estimated that Tangie is about 30% indica. There isn’t too much of a heavy bodied experience, but this strain does provide a general feeling of physical calm.

The overall experience of this hybrid should be happy, upbeat, and even a little silly. It tends to have a creative feel, great for getting things done.

When a Tangie falls flat, you’re unlikely to get that strong signature scent and the experience will be just alright. If it’s possible to smell and look at a sample before you pick up, that’ll be your best bet.

This uplifting strain is excellent for social occasions. Not only does it smell and taste amazing, but the jolly and relaxed high it provides is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

It’s also a great daytime smoke for anytime you need to get things done. Have some household chores? Tangie makes for good company.

Medical consumers tend to like this strain for mental health conditions like depression and chronic stress. However, Tangie has earned a reputation for providing amazing headache relief.

Whether it’s a tension headache or a crippling migraine, Tangie’s head-focused effects relieve pressure and open blood vessels.

The small amount of indica heritage also makes this strain great for minor aches and pains. If you’re struggling with something more severe, you’ll probably want to go for something more powerful, like Afghan Kush.
