It sounds like a smoothie or a virgin cocktail, and it sure can fool you. It shares its name with a progressive electronic band, and they would probably go well together. This is the review of Tangerine dream strain.
Tangerine Dream Strain – Introduction
Tangerine Dream is a 2010 awarded hybrid, and famous would be an understatement. What makes Tangerine Dream so special is the effect it induces – relieving intense pain while providing with uplift, an energetic state. Its name is self-explanatory – notoriety for its intense tangerine flavor.
It was developed especially for medical patients who worked and needed to stay active. Its parents are G13, the Indica Afghani and the Sativa Neville’s Haze.
Tangerine Dream Strain Potency
Tangerine Dream strain is exceptionally potent in THC levels. As it will turn out, it is both strong and rich scented.
The THC levels (Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the psychedelic effect) range between 19 and 25%, like most hybrids developed in the modern age; Cannabidiol or CBD is minor, and usually lies under 0.5%, usually no more than 0.1%. So its strength lies quite high. The high is fast acting, complimenting Tangerine Dream as a quite successful and unique hybrid of Sativa and Indica.
Tangerine Dream strains are quite famous for their unusual psychoactive effects – it boosts energy and relieves pain throughout the body; as explained before, Tangerine was developed for active people, so it clears the mental haze and leaves muscles feeling quite revitalized and reborn.
Hybrid strain means hybrid effect: the Sativa qualities induce a mental bake, and offers exhilarating borderline to psychedelic. But the Indica facetted personality targets the body and a physical reaction is induced in the form of calming pain numbing experience. You will feel equally relaxed and alert.
Sugar, Spice And Everything Nice
