Coming by way of DNA Genetics, Sour Tangie is a Sativa dominant hybrid which came to be through sticky green mating between the East Coast Sour Diesel and Tangie strains. Inheriting Sour Diesel’s lovely aroma and Tangie’s euphoric buzzing effects, this hybrid is ideal for smoking during stressful and hectic times, so perfect for students overwhelmed by essays or adults who work in fast-paced environments. This is most definitely the Xanax of the cannabis world but far less dangerous and much more flavorsome and invigorating. A bucket list strain if I ever saw one.
Growing Sour Tangie entails a fairly difficult grow process so it is much more suited for those with previous horticulture experience. Sour Tangie grows quickly at the onset but is expected to flower around the 9-10 week mark, resulting in a very tall plant, so be sure to top early to control its height. The yield is quite impressive and can be anywhere between 500-700g/m2, so you will never be in short supply of this wonderful hybrid.
Sour Tangie buds are medium-sized, dark green in color and have a unique pink undertone, with brick orange hairs and small glittering trichomes covering their exterior. Flavorwise the bud is reminiscent of sour fruit and also has hints of dirt and diesel which make for a very tasty smoke. In terms of its aroma, Sour Tangie is simply glorious and gives off a gorgeous pungent smell mixed in with lovely undertones of lemon and lime.To put it simply, this has to be one of the nicest tasting and smelling strains on the market.
THC levels are reported to come in around 19-26% roughly whilst CBD levels have been known to come in at a pretty low 0.09% or are completely absent. As always these percentages vary depending on the grower's skillset and the condition of the flower.
After consuming Sour Tangie you will notice a buzzing cerebral head high almost immediately, and boy will it put a smile on your face. This cerebral high increases in power in the early stages but mellows down after a while, after a which a body high starts to take hold. These coupling effects allow for a positively wonderful and relaxing experience, and what's more, it does not leave you stoned or couch-locked and is actually likely to make you feel more focused and energetic. One of the best highs you will ever have.
Sour Tangie is said to good for managing stress and helping to alleviate symptoms of depression. Other reported medicinal uses include boosting energy levels for those suffering from chronic fatigue and stimulating hunger for those suffering from eating disorders.
If you are not used to smoking cannabis, then the buzzing high from Sour Tangie may cause dizziness for inexperienced smokers. However, the more conventional side effects generally consist of a dry mouth and dry eyes.
