There is a wide variety of hybrid cannabis strains with a fruity, citrusy flavor and aroma. One downside to this is it can make choosing the right one for you quite challenging. In this review, we’ll tell all you need to know about the Tangerine Power strain. We’ll discuss its effects and possible medical benefits, as well as its THC and CBD content.
Before we get into all that, here’s a quick idea of this strain’s overall quality – Tangerine Power won 1st prize at the NorCal Secret Cup for Best Shatter. Without further ado, let’s find out more about this award-winning strain.
What Is the Tangerine Power Strain?
The Tangerine Power strain is a sativa-dominant (70:30) hybrid by Las Vegas-based breeders Sin City Seeds. Tangerine Power is a cross of the mostly sativa Agent Orange and Sin City’s signature Blue Power strain.
Tangerine Power blends Agent Orange’s sweet and citrusy terpene profile with Blue Power’s potent effects.
Anyone familiar with the Blue Power strain knows that it offers an uplifting and euphoric high followed by full-body relaxation. These largely mirror Tangerine Power’s overall effects and give you a good idea of what to expect from this hybrid.
The nature of Tangerine Power’s effects makes this strain best-suited to morning or early-afternoon use. Evening-time use is not a good idea as this strain is cerebrally stimulating and energizing for quite some time. Therefore, most use Tangerine Power as an early morning wake-and-bake strain. Some use it as an afternoon pick-me-up, too.
As time passes, Tangerine Power’s indica effects come more to the fore. Users tend to experience gentle relaxation that washes over the entire body. The feeling of euphoria gradually dissipates and is replaced by a sense of calm and tranquility.
Tangerine Power has inherited its robust citrusy and fruity aroma from its parent strain, Agent Orange. Breaking open the buds releases earthy notes that somewhat offset Tangerine Power’s intense citrusy fragrance.
There are no surprises when it comes to Tangerine Power’s taste. Sweet, citrusy tangerine-like flavors dominate when you inhale this strain’s smooth smoke. You’ll think that you’ve just sipped from a glass of orange juice rather than inhaled on a joint. A noticeable earthy aftertaste lingers on the tongue after each exhale.
Tangerine Power plants typically grow to three feet in height. The flowers are medium-to-large in size and are almost spherical. Some phenotypes have a more tapered look at each end.
Tangerine Power’s buds take after their parent strain Blue Power. They are tightly packed together and have a quintessential indica-type appearance. These thick buds are difficult to break apart by hand, so a grinder will make the job a lot easier.
Dark forest green colored leaves and rusty-orange to brown-colored pistils stand out prominently against the frosty layer of resinous trichomes.
