Sour Tangie Strain Review
Like a refreshing drink on a hot sunny day, it’s impossible to say no to Sour Tangie. Enlivening and energy-boosting, the weed invites positive vibes all day long. Starting a busy day with this cannabis assures productivity and bliss.
Bred by DNA Genetics under their Reserva Privada line, the marijuana is a blend of old and new. The legendary East Coast Sour Diesel gave its giggly high and fuel-like scent and flavor. Meanwhile, the newer Tangie shared its Lemony goodness and boosted the hybrid’s relaxing effect.
Awesome for some waking and baking, Sour Tangie is better than a strong coffee. One will be ready to face the taxing outside world in no time with just a single toke of this kicker. If consumed in moderation, those suffering from mental and corporeal ailments may also reap its medicinal benefits.
The Sativa-heavy herb has immense THC volume. It may be as zesty and refreshing as a citrus juice, but it can overwhelm if taken without caution. The joint may cause worrying cerebral offshoots that can disorient a user. Beginners may want to take a step back and let the veterans indulge in its goodness.

Odor and Flavors
Sour Tangie’s distinct lemon essence has the right amount of sourness to satisfy. Not jaw tingling enough to make users pucker, its citrusy scent is sweet, sour, and even a bit spicy. Giving the weed a more mature touch is its kerosene-like aroma that many veterans love.
After lighting up Sour Tangie’s bud, its blend of fragrances becomes more pungent. To fill up an entire room with its signature perfume, one only needs to take one or two tokes. Exactly as it smells, the herb’s sweet citrus taste has some fuel-like quality to it too.
Sour Tangie’s speedy cerebral buzz kicks in almost immediately. If taken early in the morning, its soaring high can awaken the still very asleep mind and give it a good jolt. Then, once the mental flight descends to a manageable level, an uplifting feeling will engulf users. With a blissful psyche, everything will seem brighter and livelier.
Perfect for some pre-work smoke out, enjoyers also benefit from its vigor and focus boost. As the joint’s modest relaxing intensity balances out the increase in energy, there’s no risk of hyperactivity or jumpiness. With this kicker, no task feels daunting, and no pressure is heavy enough to squash one’s spirit.
As mentioned, novice users should veer away from this potent strain. THC intolerant tokers should also do the same. Although pleasurable to veterans, its strong cerebral buzz will overwhelm the less experienced. Some only get dizzy, others, though, encounter heightened anxiety or paranoia levels.
Additionally, users may also experience the drying of eyes and mouth. Overconsumption and/or dehydration can cause these two common side effects. By staying hydrated even before and after a smoke out and keeping the dose low, one can easily avoid them.
Medical Use and Benefits
Sour Tangie and its string of positive cerebral effects give relief to sufferers of mental illnesses. The stressed, anxious, and depressed benefit from its euphoric and uplifting impact. At the same time, those hindered by fatigue gets their much-needed energy boost.
The weed’s ‘munchies’ also improves the appetite of people with irregular eating habits. Those with disorders such as anorexia nervosa find themselves chowing away without distress. Additionally, the binging effect also stops nausea and vomiting. As such, cancer patients receiving chemotherapy, a treatment known to cause those offshoots, retain the food they eat instead of throwing up.
Lastly, individuals pained and ached by the likes of arthritis and muscle spasms get physical comfort through Sour Tangie. Its trio of muscle relaxant, analgesic compounds, and anti-inflammatory properties does the job. With just a toke or two of Sour Tangie, one can get a break from the agony of corporeal ailments.
Growing Sour Tangie
Sour Tangie is a kush with two phenotypes. One is more Sour Diesel in effect and bud structure while the other is very Tangie. The variant with Sour Diesel traits has green, pine cone-shaped nugs. Of the same form as the prior, the more Tangie type’s buds have hints of purple and are just a bit smaller and compact.
Other than those physical differences, both phenos display the same traits. Their flowers have an abundant amount of trichomes, a dead giveaway of their potency. The two also boasts of their Sativa heritage which means they are leggy and lengthy. In fact, in an optimal setting, the plants can grow as tall as 305 centimeters.
In an indoor setting, the beauty normally reaches a height of 180 centimeters. That’s a good news to those who can’t cater to a giant. To assure length limitation, shorten its vegetative phase and use smaller pots. Note that during its 9 to 10 weeks of flowering, the plant will still stretch vertically. Come harvest-time; growers can reap up to 500 to 600 grams per square meter.
Cultivators can also raise Sour Tangie outdoors. Do consider its towering height, though, if staying discreet is important. Under the warm sun and around the fervor of nature, the flora can reach its maximum height. One may need to top it to avoid attracting the attention of nosy neighbors. If all goes well, a whopping harvest of up to 700 grams per plant is ready for some hanging, drying, curing.
