Also known as Sunva strain, Sour Tangie cannabis is good for recreational use, especially if you want to get creative and energetic before a social event. 

Even though the Sour Tangie strain is mostly a Sativa strain, it definitely steps out of the ordinary. The little bit of Indica contained in this pot makes for an excellent balance of mixed strain effects. The high THC level of averagely 19-22% in combination with only 0.88% CBD adds to this mixture, creating one of the most famous strains of all times.

It was created with the combination of Sour Diesel and Tangie. The first is one of the classic Sativa strains that have received numerous awards. The latter is the daughter of the classic Tangerine Dream, which you’ve probably also heard of. All of this means that the Sour Tangie weed has two highly popular ancestral strains, known for their great effects and medicinal applications. Both its parents provide a euphoric, mental high and leave the user in a happy, euphoric mood.

Sour Tangie Strain Common Effects

When you light up the pot, you’ll feel an almost instant euphoric rush. This rush swiftly turns into a happy feeling that removes all the stress and worries from your mind. In fact, since this is a really potent strain, you can expect fast-acting symptoms regardless of your method of consummation, even if it is edibles like wax or extracts and concentrates. According to consumers, the high this Sativa-dominant strain provides includes such effects:

  • Energetic
  • Euphoria
  • Creative
  • Happy
  • Productive
  • Socializing

Every marijuana comes with a risk of side effects. Side effects usually occur to new marijuana users or those who’ve taken a bigger dose. As with other strains, the Sour Tangie strain can also cause dry eyes and cottonmouth.

Sunva Strain Aromatic and Taste Properties

Sour Tangie strain has a noticeable aroma. Expect a fierce bitter citrus aroma, combined with lime scent that increases in strength when you crack open its buds. As you breathe it in, you’ll feel some acidity on your palate. Soon after, you’ll get a sense that you’ve tasted citrus-flavoured, sour candy. 

Flavor-wise, this Sativa is very similar to the smell. You’ll sense an intense flavor of citrus that resembles lemons and oranges. Your first puff will be sweet and swiftly mature into strong, almost tangy sour taste.

Growing Review

The Sunva strain grows very tall and very quickly. It grows to around 10 feet tall, which would demand frequent pruning to reduce the height. It suffices to say that this might not be the perfect starting strain for new or home growers. If you want to try growing it, you can find these Sour Tangie seeds online or on our website.

You have to trim this plant because if it grows too high, this may reduce its efficiency in producing the buds. To be more, the higher branches prevent sun from getting to the lower branches. The marijuana buds require sun so, if you don’t trim it, don’t expect a big and good yield.

It is recommended that Sunva strain is grown indoors since it’s gigantic and has a very strong smell. To be more, it requires a great deal of nutrients that are easier to provide indoors. This plant requires nitrogen-rich feedings.

It smells strong, great for ADH patients to improve focus, anorexia patients to stimulate healthy eating, PTDS to deal with stress, PMS to deal with mood swings and pains. I love to use it in the morning to make sure I get the most out of the day.

A friend brought ace of spades over and I was excited to try a new strain but I was disappointed . Tangie is still the best option for a fun filled day despite how much work I have to do. I feel less fatigued which helps me get more work done.

Reading can be a tedious task especially when you are on virgin territory. Sometimes I lack the zeal to keep my eyes open to feed my brain information. But, taking a few drags here and there fills me with the motivation to study. It also helps with tuning my focus to what I am reading . It is funny how I can distract myself but no more.

I think you took too much weed J-weed. This strain is one of the best out there, definitely an A lister. I think you should start with a smaller amount next time to enjoy it. It has really helped me so now, I can conveniently focus on a task without getting off thought

The Sour Tangie strain is mostly Sativa with 20% of Indica. It contains high levels of THC that go up to 21% while the CBD content levels are 0.3%.
The Sour Tangie takes up a lot of space for growth as it reaches a height of up to 10 feet. It is difficult for beginners to grow it. Even though the branches are high and block the sunlight, it cannot be pruned as this prevents it from bearing flowers during the flowering time. It is suitable for only indoor growth and requires lots of nutrients, nitrogen-rich feedings, and fertile soil.
The Sour Tangie strains taste fiercely bitter, strong, citrusy, and acidic on your palate. This is followed by a taste of sour candy with hints of citrus flavor to it.
