Purple Tangie Strain

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, like its main parent, is a potent predominantly Sativa strain that takes users to new heights with its high-flying effects. It has the energizing terpene profile of Tangie coupled with a sweet floral smoke that delivers a euphoric sensation throughout the body. Although mainly marketed to more experienced users, beginners may still enjoy the strain with the help of a seasoned friend.

    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.

    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.
