Tangerine Haze Strain Review
Love them or hate them, old-timers and those active in the cannabis scene going back some two decades seems to be divided. For sure, the efforts of a few individuals who called themselves Devil’s Harvest Krew (DHK) ultimately ended with broken friendship. Before the breakup, though, they managed to move 300 elite clone-only cannabis all over the United States with one of them being Tangerine Haze.
For a few years, these core group of people made sure that the elite cannabis plants survived by passing out its clones. There was never the intent then to sell and make money. As a matter of fact, they did not receive not even one herb in return in some of the exchanges. Because of them, hundreds of these strains remain in circulation.
Tangerine Haze, even after all these years, remains clone-only. While there are speculations, no one knew its breeder. Allegedly, it is one of the phenotypes of G-13 Haze x NYC Diesel. Found by DHK, it has made its way from Colorado to the West Coast and all the way up to Canada.
In keeping its lineage alive, both recreational and medical users get to enjoy its delicious smelling scent. More important, it is the way it enhances the mood that makes it a pleasure to use.

Not only that, but it also provokes a clear-headed high and may inspire creative ideas or thoughts. Because of that, Tangerine Haze makes for an excellent wake-and-bake strain.
At times, some people may find themselves using a tad bit too much. Once that happens, the cerebral high it induces begin to intensity. In turn, it leads to a higher level of psychedelic experiences.

Using cannabis comes with a few adverse effects.

Growing Tangerine Haze
Tangerine Haze has medium size flowers that look like tiny pine cones with a spade-like shape. It has dark green leaves embellished with orange-colored pistils. It is also covered with a creamy layer of silvery trichomes.
It is an elusive plant to find, though. Seeds currently are not available, and the only way to cultivate it is if one could obtain a clipping.
Indoors, Tangerine Haze thrives equally well using soil as a medium or hydroponics. Growers will have to top it early to keep it short as well as constantly prune and trim its leaves. Because its buds tend to be dense and heavy, some form of support may be needed. Typically, it has a flowering period of 8 to 9 weeks. The estimated yield per square meter is between 500 to 650 grams.
Should growers choose to cultivate the plant outdoors, a suitable environment is one that is semi-humid to warm. Flowering occurs in the third to last week of October with each plant producing up to 700 grams.
