Tangie is a cannabis strain that confers a heady high with long-lasting effects. It's native to the west coast of the US and was first recognized in 2003 in Southern California. Its lineage is traced back to two strains: California Orange, bred by Joe Cain in 1970, and Skunk #1 (a hybrid of Mexican and Afghani varieties), created by an American breeding project commissioned by the Dutch government.
You'll feel very alert but strangely relaxed and comfortable. Tangie's effect peaks within 2-3 hours and then begin to fade gradually. It's a good day or night strain - perfect for daytime activities with a partner or to boost your productivity at work.
Medically, Tangie is very useful for treating mild depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and even muscle spasms. It reduces stress by reducing epinephrine and increasing dopamine levels in the body. It can also be used to treat anxiety by increasing serotonin levels in the brain - both of these effects are associated with reducing stress. It's also considered good for treating occasional mental fatigue or pain; it will keep you alert and focused but won't leave you drowsy or uncooperative.
The negative effect of Tangie includes dry mouth, dry eyes, and fatigue. Tangie is also not recommended for people with high blood pressure, glaucoma, or high body temperature. If you suffer from any of these conditions, please consult your physician or health professional before consuming it. The THC content in Tangie ranges from 14 to 22%.
Tangie is a fast-growing high-yield strain that's best for indoor cultivation. It can grow to a height of 1.5 meters under optimal conditions and produces high yields of up to 8 ounces per square yard of growing space - in just 8 weeks from germination. Outdoors, Tangie will reach a height of about 2 meters, with flowering coming anywhere between 50 and 70 days after planting.
