Tangie is a strain that has gained fame for its tanginess. It is zesty like citrus with a dash of orange. Its buds emanate the same citric profile too with its electric lime hue accentuated by the fiery yellow and orange hairs around the bud. However, its true power lies in its energizing Sativa effects which have enticed users all over the world.
Without a doubt, Tangie was a standout among Sativa-dominant strains. Still, there was a breeder that wanted to enhance its hues, flavors, and effects by adding in a purple-based strain. Albeit unknown, its influence is evident in the streaks of purple and blue in its offspring as well as its subtle floral note.

Purple Tangie has a long-lasting and uplifting high that starts almost immediately after the first few puffs. It starts with a rush of euphoria that begins in the head. As it swarms the mind, it leaves users feeling cheery as happy thoughts play in the mind like a movie reel.
The change in behavior is noticeable too. Not only do users smile from ear to ear but a fit of giggles slip out of the mouth too. Although, an interesting effect of the Sativa-dominant bud is that it has its users laughing either for no reason at all or for the most random things. However, if one needs to, the newly found zest for life can also be redirected to a focused concentration that results in heightened productivity.
Eventually, the uplifting buzz trickles down from the temples. It presents itself as a zing of energy that surges through the muscles. The Indica effects remove any unwanted tightness in the muscles with a soothing body high so users feel like a well-oiled machined.
Because of its great wake and bake qualities, Purple Tangie is best used in the morning in lieu of coffee. Its rejuvenating effects refresh the mind and revive users from fatigue caused by stress or overwork. Using it in the evening, however, may be counterproductive as it will keep one up all night.
Having descended from Tangie, it should come as no surprise that Purple Tangie has a citric scent reminiscent largely of oranges. There is a subtle hint of lemon as the buds are broken apart or crushed. Once combusted, it releases an enticing floral scent.
In the palate, Purple Tangie is just as sweet as it smells. It has the zesty taste of citrus accentuated by the refreshing juiciness of freshly squeezed oranges. Adding more flavor to its tanginess are lemons and floral sprinkles which leave an interesting aftertaste on the exhale.
As expected, users experience a cottonmouth and dry eyes when smoking any kind of strain including Purple Tangie. Although the interference with one’s moisture production is temporary and mild, the uncomfortable experience can still be managed by staying hydrated throughout the day.
There might also be dizziness and paranoia that accompanies Purple Tangie’s effects. Apart from consuming beyond individual tolerance, a major factor that leads to the unwanted side effects are one’s disposition before the high. Most of the time, however, users only note a subtle headache that goes away on its own too. Still, it is best to start with low dosages before gradually building it up.
As a Sativa-dominant strain, Purple Tangie’s best effects are cerebral oriented. It induces a mood-enhancing high that leaves users feeling happy and upbeat. Often, too, it reduces stress as well as manage symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health issues.
Apart from delivering a happy high, the same psychoactive compound also has potent analgesic properties that help relieve various types of aches and pains in the body. Its anti-inflammatory properties reduce swelling and redness to appease any contractions in the muscles. Replacing it is a rush of energy that invigorates the body of fatigue.
In the gastrointestinal tract, Purple Tangie alleviates cramps that cause turbulence in the stomach. Its antiemetic effects reduce the feeling of nausea in patients who experiencing the sometimes stomach-turning effects of chemotherapy.
As a tropical strain, Purple Tangie has a natural propensity for the sunny weather of a Mediterranean climate. It prefers basking in the daylight for longer periods of time especially during flowering. This is not to say the plant will not do well in the colder temperatures and short daytime of the northern hemisphere. Rather, it will take longer to flower as there is often not enough sunlight. Still, there are many who prefer cultivating the Sativa-dominant strain indoors.
Having basic gardening skills and knowledge with various growing techniques is usually a must to maximize indoor yields. One of the most important is topping the plant. This entails forcing the plant to flower early to encourage more budding sites to sprout as well as keep it short in an area with little vertical space.
Applying a Low-Stress Training method like the Screen of Green will also ensure an even canopy that allows light and air to circulate in the lower nodes. This will require installing a screen at a height above the batch and trimming any branch that grows beyond.
Purple Tangie has a flowering period of 10 to 12 weeks which is typical of a Sativa-dominant strain. After the long wait, growers are rewarded up to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.
