tangie marijuana by nirvana

Tangie

Strength

Tangie cannabis seeds

Tangie has a THC level of about 19% to 22% along with about 0.1% CBD. It’s a Sativa dominant (about 70%) so the experience is the classic, sativa high. Full of happiness, energy, creativity and all kinds of positivity. Once your high is finished, you get a light kiss of CBD to warm and relax you before you finally emerge to face the world again.

Tangie is generally recommended for people who want a strain to use in the day time. Tangie is your typical “wake and bake” strain. Perhaps because its orange flavour makes people think of using citrus for an energy boost at breakfast time. Or for dealing with problems with concentration during the day. It’s also good for all-round daytime pain relief, especially when there is an emotional component to the pain, such as stress headaches.

Yield

Tangie marijuana strains provide very decent yields, particularly when you remember that this is a fairly compact strain. Indoors you’re looking at up to 550g/m2 and outdoors you could collect up to 550g of bud from each of your Tangie marijuana plants.

Speed

Tangie marijuana seeds

Tangie will grow happily indoors or outdoors in a warm, dry, sunny climate. In Europe, that would be the Mediterranean basin. Indoors, Tangie needs about 9 to 10 weeks of flowering time. Outdoors it will be ready to harvest around the end of September or start of October.

The great news for greenhouse and indoor growers is that even though Tangie is mostly Sativa, this is a relatively compact strain. You’re looking at a height range of about 1.2M indoor minimum to about 1.8M outdoor maximum.

Another piece of good news for all growers is that the only reason we’ve classed Tangie as a moderately difficult strain to grow is because it is a photoperiod strain. Other than that, as long as you pay attention to your marijuana basics, the robust genetics behind this strain make it very undemanding to grow.

Tangie is a cross between California Orange and Skunk #1. Dutch Passion has not released the genetics of California Orange. However, it is known to be a strain that is easy to manage. Skunk #1 is almost legendary for its robustness and for being one of the most forgiving strains there is.

The key to a successful grow of Tangie, is to ensure that your plants have enough space to grow outwards, as well as upwards. So they can spread their branches as they wish and fill them with bud. When plants get their branches entwined, air flow is impeded, ventilation suffer. This can lead to a serious risk of an attack of mould. If you make sure air keeps circulating, then Tangie should be well within the capabilities of inexperienced growers and even complete beginners.

Good air flow plus decent air filters should help to keep the odour down to an acceptable level. Even late during the flowering period. Outdoor growers should pay attention to the direction the wind usually blows because of this.

Taste

The taste and aroma of Tangie are both exactly what you’d expect it to be from the name, they are sweet, citrus-fresh orange.

Bag Appeal

Tangie not only tastes like oranges, it also looks rather like oranges, or at least partially-ripe oranges. Basically, the green nugs have lots of orange hairs that go well with the glittering white trichomes.

Tangie marijuana seeds turn into some of the prettiest buds around. The aroma of could almost be considered a medical benefit in itself. Aromatherapists often use citrus scents, including orange, to make people feel more upbeat and to boost energy levels. Some people find that just breathing in the fragrance is enough to make them feel better.

x-haze-feminised-by-sensi-seeds

X Haze

Strength

X Haze cannabis seeds

In theory, the THC content of X Haze can vary from a moderate 15% to a highly potent 25%. In practice, you’re typically looking at about 19% to 22% THC. Interestingly, even though X Haze are only just Sativa dominant (60%), the effect of X Haze is classic, old-school Sativa. It’s soaring and intense, but also clean, crisp and refreshing. The 40% Indica genetics in X Haze do not actually add that much in the way of CBD. This means that instead of going into a full, deep stone, your high will transition into a general feeling of deep peace and contentment. Overall, X Haze is generally best kept for day time use. It makes a great “wake and bake” strain and is also a popular choice for issues with concentration as well as for general pain relief.

Yield

X Haze provides decent yields. Indoors you could collect up to 450g/m2. Outdoors you could harvest up to 500g of bud from each of your X Haze marijuana plants. It has to be acknowledged that there are modern strains available which can provide the same sort of yields, while being both shorter and quicker. But X Haze scores on taste and the quality and characteristics of the high it produces.

Speed

X Haze marijuana seeds

It is known that X Haze can be grown indoors or outdoors in a warm, dry and sunny climate, which, in Europe, means the Mediterranean basin. Indoors, it needs about 9 to 11 weeks of flowering time. Outdoors, you’ll be harvesting around the start of October. That’s on the longer side for many of today’s strains, but is quite reasonable for a Haze. It’s also known that X Haze tends to grow within a range of about 1.5M indoor minimum to 1.8M outdoor maximum. With little information about the genetics, our guess is that X Haze is a cross between Lemon Haze, or one of its close relatives and a kush strain.

X Haze certainly grows in much the same style as Lemon Haze and indeed sativa’s in general. It’s a tall, slender, tree-like plant, rather than a compact Indica bush. This makes it a great candidate for plant training. Which can help to keep its height down and/or increase its yields. Where the Indica genetics do make themselves evident is in the buds. These are denser than you would expect from a Sativa. But they still have that lovely coating of THC-filled trichomes, which make your grow room glitter so invitingly.

X Haze is an undemanding strain to manage. We’ve classed it as moderately difficult mainly because it’s a photo on the taller side and has a longer than average grow time for a modern strain.

Growing X Haze successfully seems to be a case of remembering your marijuana basics, especially ventilation. This is particularly important when you are dealing with strains which have dense buds, as these hold moisture, and can become vulnerable to mould. You therefore need to make sure that you space your plants far enough apart from each other, to allow for good air flow.

Taste

The best way we can describe the taste is like a spiced lemon dessert. The spices being a mixture of Haze pepperiness and hash richness. The aroma is mostly lemon, but also has a clear hint of spices to it.

Bag Appeal

X Haze is a strain with a lot of sparkle, thanks to its covering of glittering white trichomes. In addition to these crystals, it also has bright green nugs with plenty of orange hairs. Once you open the bag and start grinding the nugs, you’ll be able to enjoy that rich, spicy lemon scent as well.

shiva-skunk-feminised-marijuana-seeds-sensi-seeds

Shiva Skunk

Shiva Skunk offers solid medical benefits and robust genetics so it’s easy to see why it’s a best seller.

Strength

Shiva Skunk marijuana seeds

Shiva Skunk has a THC level of between 13% to 20%, depending partly on the pheno of Shiva Skunk and partly on how long you allow the resulting plants to mature.

As Shiva Skunk contains about 85% Indica genetics the high is more super-chilled, mellow bliss. Unlike most sativa highs. It also means that after your initial high, you transition smoothly into a warm, comfortable relaxing stone. Overall, Shiva Skunk tends to be recommended to people looking for a night time strain. If you do find yourself using Shiva Skunk in the day time, be sure to allow yourself plenty of recovery time.

Yield

Shiva Skunk produces very reasonable yields, especially considering its short stature and speedy growing time. Indoors you can expect up to 450g/m2. Outdoors you could collect up to 450g of bud from each of your Shiva Skunk marijuana plants.

Speed

Shiva Skunk marijuana seeds

Indoors Shiva Skunk will need about 7 weeks of flowering time. Outdoors it will be ready around the end of October. Shiva Skunk prefers life in the warm and dry, therefore people who live in the Mediterranean basin are likely to be able to grow this strain outdoors. Growers towards the northern end of continental Europe might be able to use greenhouses to make the most of the available sunlight. But even they will probably need to supplement the sunlight with grow lights as autumn progresses.

There is good news for growers in the north of Europe, which is that Shiva Skunk tends to grow to an average height of about 1.2 metres indoors. It can get a bit taller outdoors, but it’s certainly unlikely to get anywhere close to 2M. This means that unless your growing space is small, you probably won’t need to do any plant training. Unless you really want to and doing so can noticeably improve your yields. At a very basic level, you can simply trim away the leaves to allow your plants to make better use of the available light. If you really want to bump up your yields, however, then sea-of-green or screen-of-green is the way to go.

For the maximum possible harvests, you will need to look at a hydroponics set up. But we suspect this is likely to be a step too far for most people, who will probably be perfectly happy with the crop they achieve by growing Shiva Skunk in soil.

We’ve rated Shiva Skunk as a medium-difficult grow mostly because it’s a photoperiod strain. Also, partly because odour control is super-important when you’re growing a strain as pungent as this. If you’re fine with managing light cycles and air filters, then Shiva Skunk is a very straightforward grow. Since it’s packed with robust, landrace genetics. As is usually the case, the most important point is to ensure good ventilation.

Taste

Shiva Skunk is a skunk strain, but it’s not total skunk. In fact, it’s actually much more interesting. The skunk pungency is balanced by the sweetness of wood on the baseline and berry towards the top. There’s also a refreshing blast of menthol to keep it all crisp and clean. The aroma leans very definitely towards the skunk side and is earthier than woody. You can still pick up on the berry sweetness, but the menthol is less evident.

Bag Appeal

Shiva Skunk does look rather nice in the bag, with its bright green chunky nugs, cheerful orange hairs and dusting of frosty trichomes. But with any skunk strain, the real joy comes when you open the bag and breathe in all that lovely skunk aroma. Even more so when you start breaking open those dense nugs and the aroma really starts to flood out.

sunset sherbet marijuana strain

Sunset Sherbet

Strength

Sunset Sherbet marijuana seeds

With 25% THC Sunset Sherbet has what it takes to deal quickly and effectively with even crippling pain and deeply negative emotional states. Since it has a relatively light 0.2% CBD, it won’t leave you out for the count for hours afterwards either.

Even though Sunset Sherbet has one of the highest THC levels around, it contains 85% Indica genetics. This means that although the high is still very evident, the sensation is a bit different than what you’d expect from a Sativa. It starts off rather euphoric, but will become more laid-back, mellow and blissfull. Sunset Sherbet is generally recommended to people who are looking for a day time strain. Even though it’s an Indica dominant, we wouldn’t recommend this strain for use at night. But we certainly think it’s a great “wake and bake” strain.

Yield

Sunset Sherbet marijuana seeds produce very impressive yields, especially given the size of the plants. Indoors you can collect up to 600g/m2. Outdoors you could be looking at up to 550g from each of your Sunset Sherbet marijuana plants.

Speed

Sunset Sherbet grows happily indoors or outdoors in a warm, sunny and dry climate. Indoors they will need 8 to 10 weeks of flowering time. Outdoors they will be ready for harvest around the end of September or start of October. What that means in practice is that you can expect a growing range of about 1.2M (indoor minimum) to 1.8M (outdoor maximum). With such high THC content and compact size, Sunset Sherbet really is a fast strain.

Sunset Sherbet marijuana seeds

We’ve classed Sunset Sherbet as being a medium-difficult grow purely because it’s a photoperiod strain. If you can grow outside or are confident managing light cycles, then you should find Sunset Sherbet very easy to manage. Sunset Sherbet comes from a long line of plants, which are quite used to fending for themselves without human assistance. So even a beginner grower should be able to get great harvests from this strain.

The key points, therefore, are ventilation and odour control. In particular, remember that the relatively short height of Sunset Sherbet is not a reason to crowd these plants into some small growing spaces. You absolutely must allow space for your plants to grow outwards, as well as upwards, without getting entangled in each other. Due to the amount of buds and such small size. If you do this, you can expect a straightforward, hassle-free grow.

When growing outdoors, think about prevailing winds, while the scent of Sunset Sherbet is very pleasant in small quantities, your neighbours may not want it blown into their faces day in and day out. Indoor growers should use air filters.

Taste

If you’re thinking of sherbet as in the sweet powder children like to eat or put into drinks, then you’re on the wrong lines. It is sweet, but it’s fruit sweet rather than candy sweet. There are also hints of citrus and mint for freshness, plus some robust earthiness to ground it. The aroma does perhaps resemble sherbet powder as that tends to smell quite fruity sweet, but again, there’s the earthiness to keep it all balanced.

Bag Appeal

Sunset Sherbet produces a weighty bag of bud, full of dense, chunky green nugs, enlivened by orange hairs and, of course, lots and lots of sparkling white trichomes. Forget about breaking up these fragrant beauties with your fingers, use a proper grinder and enjoy breathing in that glorious fruity fragrance you release.

White Diesel

Strength

White Diesel marijuana seeds

White Diesel has an average of 20% to 22% THC, which might seem to suggest this strain is intended for use in the day time. The fact that it also has a whole 1% CBD means that White Diesel is typically recommended for use at night. Although White Diesel does indeed deliver the classic Sativa, it also has enough CBD to make you feel deeply relaxed and ready for sleep. In other words, White Diesel is a great strain to choose if you want something which can both lift you out of pain and soothe you into tranquility and rest.

Yield

White Diesel marijuana seeds produce reasonable yields, in line with what you would expect from the parentage. Indoors you could collect up to 400g/m2. Outdoors, you could harvest as much as 500g of bud.

Speed

White Diesel marijuana seeds

White Diesel will grow happily indoors or outdoors in a warm, dry and sunny climate. Indoors it needs 8 to 9 weeks of flowering time and outdoors it will be ready to harvest around the middle of October. The good news for indoor and greenhouse growers, is that even though it’s 60% Sativa, White Diesel actually turns into fairly compact plant. While this strain’s growing range is between 1.2M (indoor minimum) and 1.8M (outdoor maximum), it tends to grow to about 1.5M regardless of whether it is grown indoors or outdoors.

We’ve classed White Diesel as a moderately difficult grow purely because it’s a photoperiod strain. Which means that indoor growers will need to manage light cycles. White Diesel is very straightforward to grow thanks to its hugely robust genetics. Both White Widow and NYC Diesel were bred from landrace strains, which makes up it’s strong resistance.

White Diesel isn’t likely to need all that much in the way of food and water. As it doesn’t grow particularly big. What it does need is enough space to stretch upwards and outwards without bumping into its neighbours. The only serious mistake you can make with White Diesel marijuana seeds is planting them too close together. This is just asking for mould. Give your seeds more space and air flow. This should be enough to protect your precious bud.

The only other possible issue to note is that of odour control. Diesel is a scent which divides opinion and even if you love it, you may find it gets to be too much of a good thing in a small growing space. Outdoors, you really need to think about the way the wind usually blows if you want to stay on good terms with your neighbours.

Taste

When it comes to taste, White Diesel is a strain you either really love or really don’t. The clue is in the name, this is a diesel strain and if you’ve read this far, presumably you’re fine with that. In addition to the diesel, there’s skunk pungenc, the sweetness of wood and the citrus freshness of lemon. Interestingly, the base notes of the aroma are much more skunk than diesel. The wood element also largely disappears although the citrus notes remain.

Bag Appeal

White Widow has long been admired for its good looks, as well as its good effects and White Diesel takes after its mother in that regard. In other words, what you’ll probably notice first is the sheer quantity of sparkling white trichomes coating the green nugs. All that THC makes these nugs seriously sticky!
