Sour Tangie

Taste Profile



This Session Garden strain guide article provides crowd sourced information about the Sour Tangie strain including the origins, THC content, appearance, effects & more.

Super Lemon Haze is a Sativa-dominant cross between Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze. It contains both fruity and peppery terpenes, which help give it a distinctive look and flavour composition. As the name implies, Super Lemon Haze also smells and tastes strongly of lemon peels, which make it a highly popular strain for many users, both medical and recreational.

The effects of Super Lemon Haze vary, but it is generally energizing. It rarely produces a “mellow high”, and does not contain sedative properties, so it is the perfect choice for morning or afternoon consumption. Users have reported experiences that are highly cerebral, with additional observances of relaxing muscles and relieving pain as well.

This award-winning strain is now widely available throughout the United States and is well-known for its citrus flavour and aroma. It is also a more popular choice than its genetic cousin, Lemon Haze.

What is the Origin of the Sour Tangie Strain?

While the origins of some strains are a mystery, Sour Tangie has a well-documented history. It was first created by DNA Genetics, a company that has roots in both Los Angeles and Amsterdam. Sour Tangie borrows features and characteristics from multiple regions and strains.

The Lineage Of Sour Tangie

Sour Tangie is a Sativa-dominant cross between East Coast Sour Diesel and Tangie. East Coast Sour Diesel has genetics that leans more toward Sativa, but it is most known for its pungent, gassy smell. Tangie, on the other hand, is a strongly Sativa-dominant strain that resembles Tangerine Dream in its appearance and effects. Since its creation, Sour Tangie has been used as part of numerous hybrid strains, including Sour Star Head and Citrus Punch, among others.

Sour Tangie History

Sour Tangie was first developed by DNA Genetics sometime in the mid-2000s. This Amsterdam-based company has been around since 2004, producing new cannabis strains for medical and recreational users throughout the Netherlands and the rest of Europe. Thanks to its favorable effects, Sour Tangie quickly became a strain of choice for cafe patrons and medical cannabis patients. Eventually, Sour Tangie seeds were distributed to North America to expand their market.

Like many other strains produced within the last two decades, Sour Tangie was precisely designed to take advantage of the best characteristics of its parent strains. As a result, Sour Tangie is frequently used with individuals suffering from depression or anxiety disorders, as its THC and CBD levels are highly controlled. Nowadays, Sour Tangie is enjoyed throughout the world, though it is primarily used in Europe and the West Coast of the United States.

How Is The Sour Tangie Strain Grown?

When companies develop a new strain of cannabis, they frequently like to keep tight control over the genetics of the product. However, this was not the case with Sour Tangie. Seeds are available to purchase online, making it a great choice for first-time growers and home gardeners. Moreover, Sour Tangie is one of the easier strains to manage and cultivate. The strain requires a relatively mild climate, with temperatures ranging between 22 – 28 degrees Celsius. Like most cannabis strains, Sour Tangie cannot tolerate extreme temperatures.

Nonetheless, Sour Tangie can be cultivated in both indoor and outdoor environments, as long as the temperatures remain consistent. At peak maturity, Sour Tangie plants generally stand over 2 meters tall. With taller plants, “topping” may be necessary to ensure that sunlight, or artificial light, reaches down to the lower flowers and leaves. Sour Tangie plants take about 9 – 10 weeks to flower, which is average for cannabis plants grown outdoors. If cultivated indoors, this time might be shortened slightly.

Physical Traits of the Sour Tangie Strain

Sour Tangie plants are most distinct for their height. Most plants grow to be at least 2 meters tall, with some getting closer to 3 meters, which is well above average. Sour Tangie plants have buds and leaves that carry features of both of their parent strains, East Coast Sour Diesel and Tangie.

What Does Super Lemon Haze Look Like?

Sour Tangie flowers are somewhat unremarkable looking, with light yellow, green, and orange coloration. However, the leaves of the Sour Tangie plant are much brighter, with dark shades of green and purple. The flowers vary in shape, though they are generally average-sized and oblong. The pistils are short, and trichome counts on the surface are relatively low, which means that this strain is not very sticky.

What Aroma Does Sour Tangie Have?

Sour Tangie has strong citrus overtones. When a Sour Tangie flower is broken open, it leaves behind a sweet, orangey smell that is extremely satisfying. Upon exhalation, Sour Tangie resembles Tangerine Dream in both taste and smell.

What flavors can you expect from Sour Tangie?

Super Lemon Haze tastes exactly like it smells. It has a sweet, fruity flavour that resembles a lemon (without the unpleasant acidity). For those who choose their strain based on flavour alone, Super Lemon Haze can be a popular choice.

What Effects can you expect from Sour Tangie?

Sour Tangie was made for those who want to have a creative high and mild, slow-building buzz.  In any case, there’s a lot more to Sour Tangie than creativity. The following are just a few of its most common effects:

  • Euphoria – While feelings of euphoria are pretty common among all strains of cannabis, they are very strong with Sour Tangie. Due to its high levels of THC, Sour Tangie produces strong cerebral effects that elevate mood and lower stress levels.
  • Energy Level – Users generally report high energy levels when using the Sour Tangie strain. Sour Tangie does not have strong sedative effects. As a result, it is best to consume Sour Tangie in the morning or early afternoon.
  • Creativity – Many users will have creative thoughts and ideas with Sour Tangie. The reduction of anxiety allows for thoughts to flow more freely, while higher energy levels generate better productivity.
  • Sensitivity – Sensations are amplified, so listening to music or watching movies can be much more enjoyable. Additionally, since Sour Tangie does produce a mild body high, physical sensations are more pleasurable.
  • Relaxation – Sour Tangie works well to alleviate mild anxiety. The euphoric effects combine with muscle relaxation to help users destress and enjoy the experience. That said, like most strains that are high in THC, Sour Tangie can cause paranoia in higher doses, so users should be careful with the dosage when using Sour Tangie.
  • Pain Relief – While Sour Tangie does not have high CBD levels, it is still a good option for aiding with pain relief. Sour Tangie is strong and the combination of head and body high can be very relieving to those in need.
  • Nausea Relief – Like many cannabis strains, Sour Tangie is sometimes used for experiences associated with decreasing nausea and increasing appetite. This makes it especially useful for patients suffering from various ailments.
