Overview of Tangie
Tangie, though inspired by the legendary Tangerine Dream strain, is a hybrid that stands on its own. This sativa dominant hybrid was bred in the 1990's and has become a sought-after strain from the Dutch seed bank. Genetically, the hybrid breaks down as a 30 percent indica and 70 percent sativa. Tangie is known for its refreshing citrus scent, derived from high levels of limonene, and sticky nugs coated in thick trichomes and bright orange hairs.
The nugs grow in a typical sativa shape and appear conical. Due to its indica genetics, the strain will have some of the earthiness of skunk strains. Tangie herb should demonstrate lighter green tones in compact, tight flower with a noticeably covered resinous layer of frosty trichomes. The aroma is one of sweet orange, deep skunkiness, and a slight woody spice that keeps things interesting.
THC levels fluctuate between 19 percent and 22 percent for Tangie varieties. Its CBD content is negligible and rarely reaches one percent.

Tangie plants take between nine and ten weeks to flower. DNA Genetics recommends growing the strain outside, as it blooms late in the season around early October. The strain grows remarkably tall and will continue to grow well into the fifth week of its flowering period. Tangie plants produce plenty of resinous flowers - with the signature citrus aroma - and can yield up to 550 grams per square meter of plant. DNA Genetics recommends growing the plant in soil for best results.
