Strain of the Week: Tangerine Haze

Tangerine Haze is everything you love about sativa-dominant delicacies. Its imposing spear-shaped colas are a wonder just to look at—with light yellow-green calyxes with flecks of lavender and golden and orange hairs.

This selection is more of a cannasseur treat—chosen above all for its overly citrus aroma and taste instead of its potency. It is, however, a potent strain as well.

A whiff of the distinct zesty tangerine-citrus haze aroma will have you calling this strain out by name. You bet your bottom dollar it tastes like it smells, too! This sativa-dominant hybrid is the result of crossbreeding G-13 Haze and NYC Diesel genetics. Legend has it that this strain originated around 2003-2004, probably in Colorado. But it didn’t take long for the popularity of this strain to spread clear to the West Coast and Canada. Today Tangerine Haze can be found at many upscale dispensaries in California, Colorado, Nevada and beyond.

The trichomes that coat this dense green nugget are beyond captivating. This particular phenotype of Tangerine Haze returned test results showing a 20 percent THC content. Patients looking to alleviate symptoms associated with anxiety, depression and fatigue find this strain to provide uplifting, energizing effects. Don’t forget to hydrate well with your consumption of this strain; many patients note experiencing dry mouth, which is easily remedied.

The strain produces a strong, yet functional effect that is great for gardening, cleaning or doing laundry. You might as well enjoy the experience. Although the sativa characteristics dominate this particular variety—couchlock is still an issue. But that only indicates the stain’s strong potency, which is a good thing.

It’s a great daytime strain if you still need a little extra kick that you don’t usually get with sativas. If you’re lucky enough to find Tangerine Haze at a local dispensary, give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.
