Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 80% Sativa / 20% Indica
THC: 21% – 22%
Sour Tangie is a sativa dominant hybrid (80% sativa/20% indica) strain created as a cross of the hugely popular East Coast Sour Diesel X Tangie strains. Like its parent strains, this bud is most infamous for its insanely mouthwatering flavor. Sour Tangie has a smell of pungent sour citrus that has an earthy diesel bouquet as the bud is smoked. The taste is of sour earthy citrus that has a sharp pungent diesel aftertaste upon exhale that intensifies as you smoke. Sour Tangie buds have medium-sized grape-shaped dark olive green nugs with bright surprisingly pink undertones, rich purple hairs, and a frosty layer of lavender hued fine crystal trichomes. The Sour Tangie high boasts a combination of indica and sativa effects that are powered by a relatively high THC level that falls up to 22% on average. The high starts with an elevating head buzz that jolts you with motivated energy and a slight sense of focus. This head high is accompanied by a relaxing and warming body buzz that lulls you into a state of lethargy and ease that doesn’t quite put you to sleep or cause couch-lock. Because of these well-balanced effects, Sour Tangie is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic fatigue, mild to moderate cases of depression, chronic pain, and muscle spasms.
While this is considered a Sativa-dominant hybrid, the majority of the effects are mostly Sativa effects. This is the type of strain that grows rather quickly, flowering in just 9-10 weeks, which makes it desirable for many growers.
While this strain can be used for recreational use, it also has a purpose for medical reasons as well. It is important to note that the THC levels of Sour Tangie are absolutely off the charts, coming in at between 16% and 30%. 30% is exceptionally high, even for advanced smokers, so be sure to not over-consume. Sour Tangie also contains a small amount of CBD; which is essential to note, as a lot of consumers are becoming very fond of CBD marijuana strains, due to its advanced medical effects.
Warning: Novice smokers shouldn’t start with this strain as it is powerful, and will knock you off your feet.
