If you want some weed that is ideal for producing sensations of euphoria, something that will make you talkative and social, then Tangelo is a good strain to keep in mind.

What is the Tangelo Strain?

As mentioned above, Tangelo is a hybrid strain of weed that is made by crossing Chemdawg and Burmese Kush. The dominant flavor here is orange. This strain has a very strong citrusy and fruity taste and smell, as it does really smell like oranges and tangerines.

Tangelo is a very popular strain among those who need to reduce stress and anxiety, for those who need to calm their minds, and for those who need to feel a bit more creative, concentrated, focused, more social, and much happier too. 

Remember that this is a 50/50 hybrid of indica and sativa, so you get the best of both worlds with it.


Tangelo Strain Appearance

In terms of appearance, the Tangelo strain features fairly loose buds that are quite fluffy and not too hard or compact. It’s a bud that you can really squeeze together if you wanted to.

It features a light to moderate green color on the main body of the bud, combined with plenty of light to relatively dark orange hairs peppered along the exterior.

It really has that classic weed look, green with some beautiful orange hairs. It also has a good deal of trichomes on the exterior, those white sugar-like crystals, the good stuff.


Tangelo Strain Genetics

Now, there does seem to be a bit of confusion about where this strain comes from. Some sources claim that it is produced by crossing two strains known as Tangerine Sunrise and Gorkle, which may be true in some cases. 

However, according to the vast majority of sources out there, the Tangelo strain is made by crossing Chemdawg with Burmese Kush.

THC/CBD Content

One of the things that everyone wants to know about the Tangelo strain is how much THC it contains. After all, this is the good stuff, as THC is what produces that psychoactive high. 

Tangelo is a moderately potent weed, nothing too strong, as it can contain as little as 19% THC, and can come in at up to 21.5% THC. There are much stronger strains out there that can go up to 30% THC, if not higher, so 21.5% is quite moderate, but still more than enough for you to really feel it.

In terms of the CBD content, it doesn’t have much, as it tops out at around 0.72% CBD. As for some of the other cannabinoids out there, it contains around 0.21% CBC, 0.11% CBG, 0.13% CBN, and about 0.15% THCV. 

The bottom line is that if you want a moderate high, nothing too strong, but enough for you to feel it, then Tangelo is something to consider.


Tangelo Strain Terpenes

As far as the dominant terpenes in the Tangelo strain of weed go, the dominant one here is myrcene, followed by caryophyllene, then bisabolol. The Tangelo strain then also contains a good bit of humulene, pinene, limonene, ocimene, and terpinolene.

As you are about to find out further below, the combination of these various terpenes leads to Tangelo having a fairly complex flavor profile. On that note, this strain does produce a fairly strong entourage effect due to these terpenes.


Tangelo Strain Effects

Ok, so you need to realize here that different people feel different things when they smoke Tangelo, or any strain of weed for that matter. However, there are some common effects that the majority of people feel after having smoked this weed.

Now, there are some sources that say the Tangelo strain is slightly sedative in nature and makes you feel drowsy. However, most regular users say this strain is uplifting and euphoric more than anything else. Many report being uplifted, energetic, creative, talkative, and happy.

More than anything else, Tangelo produces a cerebral high that you can feel in your head, but also a relaxing body high. Like we said, this is a 50/50 hybrid, so depending on the exact batch you get, you might feel the sativa or the indica side of things more. ]

On a side note, some people do also report feeling super hungry from this strain.


Tangelo Strain Reported Flavors

As we said, the flavor profile here can be quite complex. As the name of the strain implies, the main flavor you are going to get here is citrus, mainly orange and grapefruit. It is also quite fruity and has sweet notes to it as well, along with the slight sourness brought to the mix by the citrus.
