Tangie Strain Flavor

As you’d expect from a strain named Tangie, its citrus taste reminds users of ripe tangerines, oranges, and clementines. You’ll notice a crisp, refreshing, and sharp flavor that’ll stimulate your salivary glands. We recommend using a high-quality dry herb vape to get the most out of these juicy and flavorful buds.


Similar to its taste, Tangie has a loud aroma that screams of citrus, skunk, and spice. Upon initial inspection, you’ll notice a pleasant and fruity sweetness. A hint of floral notes, as well as sour and acidic undertones provide balance in scent to the strain. To finish things off, a spicy and herbal aroma adds to the complexity of the scent.

Tangie’s most common terpene compounds include the following:

Myrcene brings the herbal and spicy aroma to the mix. High myrcene levels in this strain are responsible for its relaxing and happy effects.

Pinene’s forest-like scent blends well with its citrus aroma. The pinene content creates a mouthwatering and refreshing bouquet of smells.

Caryophyllene’s spicy and musky aroma provides an extra level of funk. This funky aroma is characteristic of many Skunk-derived strains.

How to Grow Tangie

Tangie is a powerful strain that’s easily accessible to growers of all skill levels. This strain is available in both regular and feminized seeds. Some shops may sell Tangie clones for growers who want to bypass the germination phase.

Interested in an autoflowering version of the strain? Tangie Auto seeds can provide you with just as high THC levels as the original in a shorter amount of time.

Auto strains begin flowering after a few weeks compared to traditional photoperiod strains that require a certain amount of light to start the process.

Tangie thrives in outdoor and soil-based environments. A natural microbiome of bacteria from soil keeps your plants healthy.

Minerals, nutrients, and full-spectrum sunlight bring out its unique flavors and smell. If you plan on growing it indoors, make sure you have plenty of vertical space to accommodate the tall growth.

Tangie grows fast and tall. This plant continues its long vertical growth well into the fifth week of its life. This strain can grow in areas with higher temperatures and humidity. Just make sure to keep the temperatures between 68º and 85º F. Tangie is a good strain to use the SCROG, SOG, or FIM techniques to manage its growth.
