Sour Tangie Strain sitting at roughly 80% sativa (and 20% indica), Sour Tangie is a cannabis plant that produces small, tightly bound petals dusted in kief across long buds. The flowers smell of a strong pungency mixed in with the bitter citrus of lemon and lime peels. When burned, Sour Tangie’s initial flavor resembles sour fruit peels followed by an aftertaste of dirt and diesel.
Lab results show its potency can reach as high as 21-22% THC.
This strain is known to bring energy with its high, so it’s a good morning or afternoon strain. It can, however, induce relaxation as well. Sour Tangie is recommended by some consumers for depression, exhaustion, stress, chronic or minor pain, though they also say it can stimulate a powerful case of the munchies, too.
Common side effects from Sour Tangie include red eyes and cottonmouth. Those sensitive to sativas may find it can cause anxiety, paranoia, or dizziness as well
Sour Tangie Strain features a flowering time of between 9-10 weeks. The strain yields quite well, offering growers around 500-600g/m². The trichome production of this strain is very impressive, resulting in a snowy, jewel-like appearance.
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. For those who aren’t feeling as productive, Sour Tangie’s activated buzz can just be a fun way to pass the time daydreaming as you’re working on mundane errands or household chores.
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) consumption.
