About Sour Tangie
Sour Tangie is a sativa-dominant hybrid with two well known parents. Created by prolific cannabis breeders
focused effects, the strain offers a bold citrus flavor profile. Sour Tangie’s THC content has been measured at
between 15% and an insane 30%.
Sour Tangie establishes its appeal right away with larger than average buds that range in shape, depending on
the phenotype, from long and cylindrical to short and tapered. They have a characteristically loose and fluffy
sativa structure, with long, wispy leaves. These leaves are a patchwork of dark and bright green and are
threaded through with neon orange pistils. Cloudy white trichomes finish off these impressive flowers, making
them very sticky to the touch and difficult to break apart without a grinder.
A first inspection of flowers of Sour Tangie may pick up on some fruity, citrus notes. A second whiff,
meanwhile, might detect a strong diesel aroma, picked up form parent strain ECSD. Grinding up or picking
apart these leafy buds can release more of a hashy, sandalwood-like odor. When Sour Tangie is combusted, it
burns with a smoke that is, unsurprisingly, sour, but also smooth and easy on the lungs. On the exhale, this
aromatic smoke leaves behind a spicy, orange-tinged flavor.
Like other mostly sativa strains, Sour Tangie’s high takes hold relatively quickly. Initial signs of the strain’s
action include a head rush that comes with an increased pulse around the temples and some possible flushing
in the cheeks. Within minutes, these odd sensations die down, and consumers are immersed in an elevated
mindset, marked by an increased intensity of thought. Thoughts may jump from one to another in a free
association, while certain concepts or objects may seem to take on a new significance. This cerebral state can
spell productivity under the right circumstances — motivated smokers may be able to work for an extended
period on complicated analytical tasks as well as on more open-ended, creative projects. Even after an hour or
so, Sour Tangie’s mental stimulation stays consistent. Although some users describe an increased in physical
relaxation, this body stone isn’t usually strong enough to lock them on the couch. Instead, those who are so
inclined can enjoy Sour Tangie’s subtle combination of mental and physical activation with activities that
involve complex coordination, including, but not limited to, dancing, exercise, and even sex. The strain can also
be an effective social lubricant in party settings, sparking camaraderie and free-flowing conversation. Because
of its mostly wide-awake vibes, Sour Tangie is recommended for daytime (and even wake-and-bake)
How to Consume Sour Tangie
Sour Tangie’s buzzy effects may also be of use to medical cannabis consumers. Its long-lasting thoughtfulness
may aid focus for those with attention deficit disorders. Its generally elevated mood can also temporarily
improve the symptoms of stress and depression. Physical benefits, while subtle, include a relief from chronic
aches and pains, as well as from inflammation-related discomfort like cramps and headaches. The strain’s
ability to induce the munchies may even serve as an appetite enhancement for those dealing with diminished
hunger due to disease or to treatments like chemotherapy.
Luckily for home gardeners, DNA Genetics has made seeds of Sour Tangie available for sale online. Once
obtained, the strain can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor growth depends on a hot and semi-humid
with consistent daytime sunlight. Due to their sativa genetics, these plants can grow quite tall and may requires
indoor gardeners to keep their height manageable with occasional pruning. Sour Tangie flowers within a long 9
to 10 weeks, but rewards patient gardners with a fairly high yield, estimated at between 46 to 56 grams (or 1.6
to 2 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
A winner for fans of both citrus and diesel aromas, Sour Tangie is an excellent all-purpose sativa. Its tuned-in energy can be especially fun during a hike through the great outdoors.
