Our latest strain review features a phenotype of Sour Tangie known as London Sour Tangie. This sativa-dominant hybrid strain combines East Coast Sour Diesel and Tangie.
The result is a powerful citrus explosion of a strain, giving off strong scents of limonene (citrus/oranges) which carries through into the flavour.
Read on to learn more about this cannabis strain.
The one area of this strain which perhaps let it down a bit was the appearance – Sour Tangie lacks bag appeal. The buds don’t look bad, but are smaller and less developed-looking than other strains.
There are some leaves dotted about the bud. Trichomes can be seen glistening amongst the sunken pistils which are a faded copper colour. The flower is quite uniform in colour with a few shades of green.
The branding on the packet was good – this came in a premium flower bag (plastic with artwork) – looks like artwork developed for this pheno , mentions weight (3.5g), THC/CBD percentages etc.
10 out of 10. Super strong citrus, I visited Kew Gardens recently and nothing I smelt there comes anywhere close to this. Rich, sweet oranges. Hints of freshness/pine from the East Coast Sour Diesel but the tangie is coming through strongly here.
Breaking open and grinding the bud adds a nice sweet pungency, sort of skunky. When the bud is left in a container and then the container is opened I also get a puke sort of smell which comes with strains like ODV3, Marmalade.
Taste + Smoking Experience
I consumed the Sour Tangie through my bong and my Mighty. Through the bong it presented a wonderfully smooth smoking experience, with zero need to cough. This sample was grown organically – it must have been to smoke this smoothly. The citrus comes through into the flavour, again overpowering references to the East Coast Sour Diesel – apparently some phenos lean more towards the Sour Diesel side than the Tangie side, but this is definitely more Tangie.
Vaping Sour Tangie presents a super strong, smooth and sweet orange taste that gets top marks from me, but I couldn’t pick between smoking and vaping this one as both are an absolute treat.
The Sour Tangie clocks in at up to 26% THC, according to the bag. The batch I tried wasn’t that strong, but left me with a sativa-led hybrid high that felt good as a daytime smoke.
One influence I can assume was from the East Coast Sour Diesel side was a great chatty side to the high – the sort of high that can help increase productivity or creativity.
It is a clear-headed strain to smoke rather than one which will leave you too stoned to think straight.
I enjoyed smoking and vaping London Sour Tangie for this week’s review. Aside from not looking the best, this strain delivered in all areas and was a good smoke for daytime consumption.
