Tangerine Dream is a well-balanced hybrid that was created by crossing G13, Afghani (both indicas), and Neville’s A5 Haze (sativa). THC levels in this incredibly strong strain average approximately 22% but can reach a mind-boggling 25%. However, its CBD content is substantially lower, with most samples reaching only 0.10%. This strong strain is a legendary invention of the world-famous breeders at Amsterdam’s Barney’s Farm. It rose to fame after winning first place in the 2010 High Times Cannabis Cup. This powerful strain has an almost equal indica/sativa split, the majority of the time being a 60/40 sativa leaning bud.

The rich citrus aroma is where this strain truly lives up to it’s in-bag appeal; the preserved flowers emit an orange scent with a pleasant earthiness mixed in. Many customers report a peppery, clove-like undertone that complements the orange top notes. Breaking up the sticky buds produces a stronger herbal funk, which was most likely passed down through Haze genetics. The smoke is smooth and has a chemical-like, diesel flavour. When inhaled, the smoke has a distinct orange zest flavour, as well as a slight tangy flavor that remains on the tongue long after first sparking up.
