Sour Tangie Strain

On a warm day, would it be nice to have an ice-cold glass of lemonade orange to cool you down? Nice thought, but that is not exactly what we have here. Rather, imagine a hot day as all the things that stress you. What would you need to do to take away the pressure, at least to temporary relieve the stress?

In the world of cannabis, we say there is something for everyone, and to take away the stress, a good strain to use would be the Sour Tangie. Medical cannabis users think this is one of the better strains to use for stress relief and managing depression, but recreational users have a more popular use for this strain.

Used in moderation, the Sour Tangie could not only uplift your spirit and making you feel happy, but it also heightens your focus, which might even help you get things done faster.

Sour Tangie might not have existed if not for DNA Genetics, which was able to recreate the Tangerine Dream, a highly popular strain some 30 plus years ago. They named the new strain Tangie, which obviously was a play on its citrus and orange heritage. By crossing it with the East Coast Sour Diesel, DNA Genetics has created a predominantly Sativa strain which they named Sour Tangie. One thing to note, though, is that Sour Tangie has two phenotypes when grown, with each one leaning a little more to either of its parents.

    Sour Tangie is a potent strain that brings about a wonderful cerebral head high. If you are not used to smoking cannabis, or this is the first time you are doing so, be conservative as once it hits you, there is a buzzing high that might leave inexperienced smokers dizzy.

    One thing that makes Sour Tangie insanely popular is that it smells good, tastes better, but its effects are absolutely fantastic and it does not leave you stoned or wandering off in dreamland. Instead, consumers of this strain are likely to feel more focused and energetic and the euphoric feeling continues for a couple of hours or so.

    This has to be one of the best smelling cannabis strain in the world. Sour Tangie has a pungent sour odor of diesel blended with citrus lemon.


    Sour Tangie is an absolutely delightful feast. The fragrance of diesel is less pronounced but is still present, but the sweet tangy citrus taste that comes with it makes it a delight to smoke.

    Adverse Reaction

    Using Sour Tangie, and any cannabis strain should always be in moderation. Especially for those who are new, the surprising hit at the onset of the cerebral high might cause some to feel dizzy. Other than that, it is expected that smokers would feel dry mouth and dry eyes.

    We cannot overemphasize the importance of not using beyond your limits. Once a user has exceeded his/her own tolerance level, one negative effect might be an increase in the level of anxiousness. For that reason, medical cannabis users who use Sour Tangie to deal with anxiety should use this hybrid in small amounts only.


    There are two primary uses of Sour Tangie among medical cannabis users. One is in managing stress, which in turn helps them deal with depression. Another is in boosting energy. Users of this strain often feel energetic, hence those who feel fatigued should find the extra energy a great benefit as they deal with mental and other anxiety issues.

    One other benefit also, is that those who need a little help in having a better appetite should find using Sour Tangie an hour or so before eating beneficial.

      Sour Tangie can be grown both outdoor and indoor. At this time, we do not have a lot of information on cultivating this strain, but what we do know is that outdoor it could grow up to a 10-feet tall or more, so topping it early is needed. From what we have gathered, we know this cannabis plant can grow fast, and even better, has a high yield. As mentioned earlier, there are two phenotypes, which takes the properties of one of its parents.

      Flowering Time


      You would need to account for the space this cannabis requires for indoor growing. Because there is much more work to be done, this is a strain that requires previous experience. Even with the hard work that you have to put in, the reward would come two months later when you hold in your hands a bountiful harvest of 16 to 20 ounces per square meter.


      Sour Tangie can grow really tall, so be sure to top early to control the height of this plant. Not only does it have a pungent odor that might attract your neighbors, it could also be seen quite easily. The good thing is that by the time you harvest, you would have collected some 24 ounces and possibly much more per plant.

        1. I just started a seed I got from a medical cannabis dispensary.(terrapin) it popped in less than 3days on day four today it’s 3inchs and got it’s first two leafs coming in already if this is any indication of how quickly it’s going to grow look forward to letting you know.

        2. This strain is absolutely the most amazing smoke I have ever tried. Stretching during flowering is an understatement. This strain more then triples in height in the first 4 weeks and requires tying down the branches for normal indoor growing. The buds get very large very fast but stable out in size around week 7 and then fill out and become very aromatic at the same time. I flowered for nine weeks and in darkness for 48 hours and am completely satisfied with the affect it gives. I trimmed with about 30% golden trichomes. It needs to be properly vented as the citrus smell is as strong as it gets from what I have grown in my 3+ years of indoor growing. It will also take in all the nutrients you can give when Mammoth is added to your water. The only negative is it tends to attract spider mites so keep a very close eye out for them in the first third of the flowering time. I bought them in time but they did appear. NOT FOR BEGINNER SMOKERS!

        3. Sour Tangie is the best outdoor strain in the northeast U.S. ive grown over 100 sour tangie plants if you include clones. Average 3-4 oz per plant. Needs a minimum 30 gallon soft pot and 50% coco/ potting soil mix works best. Clone success rate is about 94% soaking them in water for 4 days and then. Dropping them in soil. If you put them in the ground by April 1 you could grow a pound for the $25 cost of a fem seed. AMAZING INVESTMENT. Try it once and it will change your life.
