About Tangerine Power
Tangerine Power is an aromatic, sativa-dominant hybrid that proves that taste doesn’t have to come at the expense of potency in cannabis breeding. Created by Las Vegas-based Sin City Seeds, the purveyors of Happy Nightmare and White Moonshine, this strain is a cross between fragrant Agent Orange and Sin City’s own indica Blue Power. The resulting bud gives smokers a smooth transition from mental acuity to deep physical relaxation. The strain’s psychoactivity and taste even earned it 1st Place in the NorCal Secret Cup. Its THC has been measured at between 15% and 25%.
Tangerine Power is marked by medium to large flowers that hold a roughly spherical formation, although some phenotypes may be more tapered at either end. Much like parent strain Blue Power, these buds have a tight and compact indica-type structure. The leaves are a dark shade of forest green and are threaded through with burnt orange to brown-colored pistils. Finally, a glittering coat of trichomes covers these thick buds and makes them difficult to break up without a quality grinder.
As one might expect, the dominant aroma of this strain has strong notes of orange. The flowers also carry a strong, candy-like sweetness. Grinding up the tight buds releases some dank, earthy notes. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Tangerine Power burns with a smooth and easily ingested smoke. This smoke tastes both herbal and citrusy on the exhale, leaving behind the overall impression of strongly-flavored tea.
Tangerine Power strikes the user quickly, exerting a sativa influence on the head. As the same time as they detect a flush in the cheeks or a slight throbbing around the temples, smokers may feel a sharpening of their mental energy. They may be more likely to focus intently on certain topics or thoughts, and to jump from one idea to the next in free association. Fortunately, this cerebral energy is tempered by a growing relaxation that gradually trickles down from the neck and spreads through the core and limbs. Users may find that they’re particularly at ease in social situations, able to freely and lucidly converse with like-minded friends. Tangerine Power can also help bring a newfound clarity to analytic, problem-solving scenarios and may make mundane chores like cleaning the house much more enjoyable. As time passes, this strain’s physical effects become more and more pronounced. Smokers may feel their limbs and eyelids weighed down in equal measure and consequently may begin to seek out the closest comfortable surroundings. In these later stages, cerebral focus gives way to a pleasantly hazy mindset that’s perfect for lazing out and starting binge-watching session. If sufficiently tired, consumers may find themselves lulled to sleep by Tangerine Power’s strong sedative properties. Because of its taper down from energy to relaxation, this strain is best enjoyed between late afternoon and early evening.
Tangerine Power can also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its lasting focus can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders. Its ever-present positive energy can also temporarily alleviate the harsh symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. On the physical side, the strain’s relaxing effects may soothe deep-seated aches and pains, whether they’re due to injury or to chronic conditions like lupus and fibromyalgia. Because its onset is associated with a palpable feeling of “mindrace,” those who are prone to panic should consume Tangerine Power in moderation and with caution.
Sin City has made seeds of Tangerine Power available for sale online. Once obtained, it can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with consistent daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Only moderately tall, the strain flowers within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors and offers a below average yield of about 28 to 37 grams (or 1 to 1.3 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
As enjoyable when savored alone as it is shared with friends, Tangerine Power is an excellent accompaniment to many everyday activities. If you’re breaking it out in public, though, be prepared for this fruity bud’s aroma to attract some attention.
