Think of Tangie as a variation on a theme. It’s basically a reworking of Tangerine Dream, but with different genetics. Tangie is a cross of California Orange, an even sativa/indica hybrid, and a Skunk strain, while Tangerine Dream is a combo of A5 and the legendary G-13. Though they don’t share many genes, the two Tangerines share a strong, sweet flavor reminiscent of tangerines and other citrus fruits. Tangie is sativa-heavy, and though the exact ratio of sativa to indica is unclear, it’s probably at least 70:30. That means an uplifting cerebral high with enhanced creativity and euphoria, plus a focused boost of happiness. It’s good for treating several disorders, though specifics are hard to come by: nausea, anxiety, lack of appetite, and depression. The only widely reported problems are bloodshot eyes and dry mouth, so this may be a good choice for patients sensitive to side effects. Maximum THC levels of more than 22% make this a potent choice for patients who have been smoking marijuana for some time; it may be overpowering for first-timers. Look for Tangie in Colorado and Arizona, and on the West Coast.
What is Live Resin?
Live resin is a type of cannabis concentrate that is made from fresh cannabis plant material. Unlike other concentrates that are made from dried and cured cannabis flowers, live resin is made using the entire plant, including the buds, leaves, and stems.
The resulting concentrate is highly potent and has a distinctive flavor and aroma that is often described as more complex and nuanced than other concentrates. Live resin is typically consumed by dabbing, although it can also be added to edibles or used to infuse other cannabis products.
Benefits of Live Resin
The benefits of live resin are largely related to its high concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes, as well as its unique flavor and aroma profile. Here are some of the potential benefits of using live resin:
- High potency: Live resin typically has a much higher concentration of cannabinoids like THC and CBD than other forms of cannabis, which can provide a more potent and intense experience.
- Full-spectrum effects: Because live resin is made from fresh, uncured cannabis plant material, it contains a wider range of cannabinoids and terpenes than other concentrates. This full-spectrum effect may offer more comprehensive therapeutic benefits.
- Enhanced flavor and aroma: Live resin has a unique flavor and aroma profile that is often described as more complex and nuanced than other concentrates. This can make for a more enjoyable and flavorful experience.
- Versatility: Live resin can be used in a variety of ways, including dabbing, vaporizing, adding to edibles, or infusing into other cannabis products.
