Tangerine Dream is a sativa-leaning strain with effects that may reduce pain and increase energy. Tangerine Dream (from the illustrious Barney’s Farm) is a cross of G13, Afghani, and Neville’s A5 Haze. Consuming too much Tangerine Dream may leave you stuck in the couch, as this strain was crafted to meet the demands of medical patients. Uplifting and euphoric, it provides consumers with mental clarity while deeply relaxing muscles. Tangerine Dream typically flowers in 8 to 10 weeks and features a citrusy aroma.
You have hits and misses when buying new weed. Lately, I’ve had a lot of misses. The weed itself has been fine, but my reaction to it — slow, groggy and despondent — has not been. Maybe this is a by-product of limiting myself to pre-orders out of ’rona fear and not engaging with budtenders before making my purchase (not that we’re allowed to smell before we buy now anyway), or maybe my body is just changing; lord knows the shape of it has.
Being the cheapskate that I am, though, an in-store-only sale was the only thing that was going to drag me inside a dispensary. And that’s when I thought I’d found my dream strain for curing my weed woes.
Initially presented with a lineup of potent OGs and Cookies varieties, I asked the budtender for something that was more on the straight-and-narrow path for daytime use but still flush in the flavor department. She pulled out something from the corner with the name Tangerine Dream. Although she wasn’t very enthusiastic while describing it as a “light high,” the mild potency was exactly what I was looking for. But as the world always proves, few of us ever get to live out our dreams.
Are you a citrus lover that appreciates good cannabis when you see it? If so, Tangerine will be right up your alley. This strain is a sativa-dominant hybrid that’s a four-time backcross of Ch9 Aroma. Creators at Ch9 Female Seeds have done a fine job of keeping this strain’s data a mystery, as not much is known about its exact ratio or common THC levels. Taking a chance on Tangerine, however, will probably pay off handsomely regardless of its numbers.
What has been determined is that Tangerine’s THC level can rise as high as 18%, although an average testing range is not publicized. Users instead focus on this strain’s insane smell and flavor profile, that will make you think you’ve been transported to the citrus groves of Florida. Orange, mango, and pineapple fragrances all blend together for a scent that will make your mouth water, and these same tastes will stick around long after you exhale. Nugs of Tangerine are bright green and boast an intensely thick layer of sandy trichomes.
Tangerine is a great daytime choice for new or experienced users, as you’ll enjoy a plethora of effects that all leave you fully functional. Initially a head high will result in strong feelings of happiness and incredible amounts of energy. While this can sometimes make people feel jittery or experience anxiety, your high will be smooth and enjoyable. As you shift into the indica effects, your body will become more relaxed without any sense of sleepiness.
Boasting a rather high CBD amount of 2%, Tangerine is a medical patient’s dream come true. Since it’s great for any time of day, try using it to relieve stress at the office or as a daily smoke to get through a depressing stretch of life – we all have them. Those with chronic body pain, inflammation, or migraines will appreciate the way that this strain takes the edge off and can make you more functional. Some patients find that the relaxing benefits of its indica side can help them achieve a great night of sleep as well.
Again, limited data makes it tough to give exact recommendations if you’re trying to grow Tangerine at home. What is known, however, is that she will do well either indoors or outside, and with a 7 to 8 week flowering time, there probably isn’t anything overly nuanced to worry about.
Keep some Tangerine handy the next time you want to taste the best bud of your life. It could become your new daily favorite, or you may reserve it for special occasions where you want to have a carefree and energetic day.
Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 22%, CBD: 2%
Tangerine is a sativa dominant hybrid strain created through a four times backcross of the infamous CR9 strain. This tasty bud is infamous for its aroma, which is said to be identical to a walk through an orange grove just after it’s rained. The taste is just as sweet, with a zesty citrus flavor that has a sweet surprisingly tropical aftertaste upon exhale that lingers long after you finish smoking. Tangerine buds have long leafy and airy pepper-shaped bright lime green nugs with fiery orange hairs and a frosty thick coating of sandy fine crystal white trichomes. The Tangerine high is just as pleasant as the taste and is perfect for a daytime smoke when you need energy without the anxiety that sometimes comes. You’ll be hit with a strong euphoric onset that leaves you giggly and insanely energized almost immediately after smoking. This is followed by a deep happy relaxation felt in the mind and body that aren’t sedative in the least bit, but rather rids both of any pain or tension. Due to these powerful effects and its high average CBD level of 2% and THC level of up to 18%, Tangerine is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic pain, inflammation, mild to moderate cases of depression, muscle spasms or tremors, and chronic anxiety or stress

Type of High
Tangerine Dream marijuana induces uplifting cerebral euphoria, energizes body and mind, prompts laughter. Followed by deep body relaxation and couchlock. Controls pain, promotes sleep, stimulates appetite. May cause paranoia.
One of the most pleasant aftertastes in cannabis. Strong citrus peel and pine all the way through, with a very mild but distinct lime finish that hangs out for a spell. Alert, focused, but not taking life too seriously (much like my lovable hound). Life is good, music feels live. A few deep hits gifts a strong sense of creative energy that must escape, thus this review.
