Tangerine Dream Strain Information

Tangerine Dream has a long and storied history. Its origins lie with Dutch breeder Barney’s Farm, who cultivated it sometime in the 1990s or 2000s. Tangerine Dream is a Cannabis Cup winner, boasting a victory in the 2010 contest.

Genetics

This strain is slightly Sativa-dominant, just tipping the scales at 60%. Its family tree has many roots, including G13, Afghan, and Neville’s A5 Haze. G13 is a potent Indica that, according to urban legend, was stolen from the U.S. government. One of the most prevalent landraces in the world, Afghan has provided its genetics to countless plants. Meanwhile, Neville’s A5 Haze is a tall, nearly pure Haze phenotype with a powerful buzz.

Flowering Time

The flowering time for Tangerine Dream is fairly short. Indoors, it’s fully mature after just 60-65 days of 12/12. Outdoor growers should harvest their crops in early October, before the first frost of the year.

Yields

Tangerine Dream is an above-average yielder. Indoor growers can expect to pull down about 600g/m2 (17.6oz/ft2) regardless of whether they’re growing in soil or hydroponics. Outdoors, cultivators can expect 600g (1.3lb) for every plant they grow. Perfectly-grown specimens will yield sticky, resinous flowers coated in trichomes.

Effects

As a slightly Sativa-dominant hybrid, Tangerine Dream runs the gamut of effects. It leads with a rush of uplifting happiness, a rain of stoned sunshine on a cloudy day. It banishes stress, induces relaxation, and is perfect for daytime smoke sessions.

THC And CBD Levels

Tangerine Dream has a THC rating that can peak around 23%. While that already seems like a high level, this strain derives even more strength from trace amounts of other terpenes and cannabinoids via the Entourage Effect.

Smell And Taste

A bold, tangy taste of citrus is the most forward flavor that Tangerine Dream presents. Its terpene profile rounds out that potent zing with the sweeter taste of ripe berries and a hint of orange zest. Tangerine Dream derives its flavor from three primary terpenes: limonene, myrcene, and caryophyllene.

Growing Tips

Tangerine Dream’s height can reach up to 100cm (nearly 40 inches) indoors, so make sure you have plenty of vertical space for the plant to stretch. It can nearly double that outdoors in large pots, reaching 150cm (59 inches).

  • For best results, use training techniques like LST, topping, main-lining, and defoliation.
  • If growing inside, increase the LED wattage from 400 to 600 when switching into flower.
  • Very large pot sizes of 20L (5.2gal) and up will allow for efficient root growth.

Tangerine Dream Seeds

These feminized seeds will always sprout into female plants, eliminating the need to patrol your garden for males. Regular seeds can sprout male plants, which can ruin a garden. However, they’re photoperiodic, not autoflowering, which means you’ll need to manually switch your light schedule to induce flowering.

      I’m happy with a good yield! Buds smell great too - the roma reminds me of honey and citrus. The effect is not for faint hearted I’d say - it gets you really high!

      Enjoyed growing this strain a lot, mostly because it smells like intense orange creamsicle! Responded will to rookie growing practices at first. Fluctuations of PH and EC levels didn't really put a dent in her at all. The only time I had yellowing leaves was then I didn't water her for a few days over the xmas holidays. She bounced back fine and was strong all the way through. Great yield from this plant also! Big beautiful tight buds all throughout and responded well to LST. I'll definitely grow this one again!

      Definitely day stuff, really cerebral and stormy high, with a huge amount on socialised characteristics within the high. Amazing weed for boring parties where you usually wouldn’t want to go to😂

      I'm a big fan of this strain. It seems like I got 2 phenos that are pretty different from one another. Two of the plants have the bright tangerine aroma and taste, although the buds on one plant are a lot better looking and potent with tons of orange hairs. The second pheno is definitely the winner. Has a strawberry smell and is white from all the crystal. Both phenos are a great smoke. The taste is definitely keeps you coming back for more and it's a great daytime smoke. Nice, heady 'up' high without a burn out.

    • Disadvantages
      Grows too tall when planted outdoors
    • General impressions
      In June I planted 3 seeds outdoors and harvested in October. The total yield from 3 plants was 2120g. Phenotype is definitely sativa as they grew up to three meters tall and the buds are spread all over the side stems, not only the central cola
