About Tangie Cookies
Tangie Cookies, also known as Tangerine Cookies, is an ambitious Sativa-dominant hybrid created by elev8 Seeds. This US-based company is dedicated to the genetics of cannabis and known for its ambitious hybrid strains. Tangie Cookies is the result of these growers crossing the citrusy-sour Tangie with the sweet Thin Mint Cookies strain. As a result, this bud inherited an incredibly unique flavor profile.
Those lucky enough to come across Tangie Cookies are in for a real treat. These minty-green buds are fluffy and popcorn-like. The brilliant, pastel green mint color of the flower is accented by bright orange hairs and an incredibly thick coating of white trichomes which can get so dense it is almost resin-like on some plants. The buds naturally smell like a wonderful combination of citrus and earth, which evolves into an aroma of creamy but sour menthol as the flower is broken and ground up. When burned, this bud will taste of incredibly sour citrus with a cool mint exhale and aftertaste.
The Tangie Cookies high begins hard and fast, much like its genetic relative Tangie Biscotti. You’ll immediately feel happy and euphoric, wanting to jump into a conversation or explore the outdoors. Without stopping for a break you’ll quickly accomplish your day’s goals with a lot of time leftover. The high experienced when using Tangie Cookies is incredibly motivating and de-stressing.
This bud is popular amongst growers for two reasons. For one, elev8 Seeds has done a great job marketing their Tangie Cookie seeds to growers on the internet. In addition, the flower has an excellent yield. Both of its parents are known for less-than-average yields which often leave growers disappointed in their time and hard work. Tangie Cookies, however, grows amazingly well and fills out very densely. The incredibly high yield makes it incredibly attractive to growers looking to branch out into growing hybrids.
Because this high is motivating, it is great at treating the symptoms of chronic stress, chronic pain, and depression. These ailments often leave people feeling disinterested and distracted, which Tangie Cookies clears up immediately. It is also known to alleviate headaches and migraines in some users. This strain can be used throughout the day, for just about any task you don’t feel quite up to accomplish. Towards the end of your high, your body will experience the effects of Tangie Cookies’ Indica genetics, as you become slightly relaxed and sedated.
I grew this strain in 2018. Seems like I read about it I n High Times. The 28.87% THC and something like 5.1% terpenes is what made me decide to get it. And I'll tell you what, my decision was divine. T.C. tested the highest ever for terpenes. I can vouch for high terpenes. However, the bud for the most part, didn't have much of an exotic tangerine flavor. But a six month cure in Foodsaver bags helped bring out the flavor a lot. BHO made from T.C. bud, has an absolutely immense tangerine flavor and smell. Especially when smoked out of an oil burner. Keeping flame off of the oil makes it retain the oh so desirable tangerine flavor until it is gone. Just one hit of the oil brings the most incredible depth of tangerine flavor and smell to ALL the air around you. I diluted the BHO with Wax Liquidizer. I used blueberry flavor, but the tangerine completely outdid the blueberry. That says a lot about the power of the terpenes this strain is endowed with. I really couldn't believe that such a good flavor could come from a plant. Tangerine's themselves don't even taste this good. I grew this outdoors. I still have yet to grow it indoors, but I can't begin to imagine how good an indoor crop would taste. Growing with an emphasis on the root system being extensive allowed around pound and then some, per plant. This was despite the fact that they were shaded most of the day, by a huge pine tree. God only, knows what they'd be capable of in full sun. Applying Norwegian seaweed powder during flowering, both directly, and to compost tea, will yield rock hard, super dense buds. Don't listen to what the description says about them being airy. My plants produced colas that looked like an absolute hard on. Good old potassium will do that. Like the description says, the high comes on quick. It'll get you goin' too! Let me tell you! Driving around town, with V8 power, Flowmaster exhaust, and a 5-speed, becomes a new experience all over again. This sativa really let's you hone in on whatever you're doing, allowing you to get the most out of it. And do it well, you will.
