Replacing the usual morning cup of coffee with Tangerine Queen may seem preposterous but, upon closer inspection, could be possible. The slight tang from the first toke ignites the mind, sending a zing that first clears away worries before making its way down to the lower extremities. Its energizing onset not only refreshes perspectives but also invigorates one from the previous day or week’s stress.
Besides lightening the load on consumers feeling burnt out, it also has effective analgesic, anti-depressant, and anti-psychotic properties that help reduce the suffering brought about by certain health conditions. As such, it brings back one’s zest for life.
For its orange-flavoured terpene profile, it had to be sourced from a discontinued and fairly elusive Orange Velvet - a cultivar high in limonene. Moreover, the terpene itself is full of benefits. Cinderella 99, on the other hand, maintains its prominence among users and growers for its easy-to-grow buds which boast impressive THC levels.
Tangerine Queen is available at Homegrown Cannabis Co. in regular seeds form. Its germination rate is quite high, with taproots appearing between 1 to 5 days. Master breeders have carefully selected choice varieties for its parents - ones that not only produced dense buds but were easy to grow.
It would not be farfetched to say that Tangerine Queen is a reasonably good-looking plant. Lanky stalks give it a slender appearance. Its foliage consists of light green leaves and buds with gold undertones. From afar, the sparkling trichomes - and a generous coating too - sparkles thus giving the appearance of small pieces of gems.
For indoor cultivation, some homeowners may have to ensure that there is enough vertical space for this medium-size plant. Otherwise, topping it after three weeks of vegetation helps control the height. Moreover, it also promotes the growth of more budding sites.
Although there is no need to deviate from the usual growing practices, experienced cultivators may employ the Screen of Green training technique. Under this setup, the branches are manipulated to form an even upper canopy. Meanwhile, the lower nodes are prevented from producing buds as their distance to the light source, and exposure is inadequate. Instead, the plants could divert their energy to the budding sites where there is enough and equal distribution of illumination.
During the pre-flowering stage, one of the priorities is to identify gender. As these are regular seeds, there is a 50/50 chance that males would show up, and these need to be carefully segregated from the females. After 10-12 weeks of flowering, each square meter could yield around 350 grams of buds.
Outdoors, Orange Velvet x Cinderella thrives best in a Mediterranean-like climate where it can absorb as much sunlight as possible. Although seemingly thin, its frame is quite sturdy. Harvest usually falls around the last week of October to the second week of November. By then, it could provide a minimum of 350 grams per plant.
Enthralling the senses at the first whiff are overtones of oranges. Blunting the overpowering tanginess is a sweet and earthy blend. As the scent emitted is quite pungent, installing an odour-control filter is recommended.
Tangerine Queen has an invigorating scent that instantly awakens the mind. However, this effect leans more to the gentle side rather than an intense surge. The euphoric buzz continues to work its magic, mood swings to the positive leaving one feeling happy.
It also promotes mental clarity and creativity. Feeling upbeat, engaging in tasks become a much more fun experience. Moreover, this cultivar also helps by enhancing the sense of focus.
After half an hour has passed, a sense of calm starts to be noticeable. It begins as a soothing sensation that creeps into the body, slowly loosening tight muscles. As tensions melt away, it further enhances the mood. When consumed in a small dosage, the physically relaxing high complements the mental buzz without causing too much of a slowdown. Consuming more - either by smoking or vaping - increases the intensity, leading to laziness or even a couch-lock. Moreover, it might also heighten senses, causing visual and auditory distortions.
One effect of Tangerine Queen is the munchies. As it reaches peak intensity, the urge to eat becomes stronger.
An excessive dosage could be overwhelming. Instead of the usual cottonmouth, dry eye, and possibly occasional dizziness, some people might feel paranoid or highly anxious.
A cross between two invigorating cultivars, Tangerine Queen has much to offer the casual consumer. It has a long-lasting clearheaded high that keeps one alert for hours. Although perfect as a wake-and-bake hybrid, a few extra puffs will bring out a more upbeat disposition, making it a fun cultivar for sharing.
Its terpene profile is not only delicious but also beneficial. Working in synergy with cannabinoids enhances the energizing effects as well as medicinal properties. Thus, it can instil a sense of mental and physical calm, easing away symptoms of a wide variety of health problems.
Cultivating it at home ensures quick and easy access to a ready stash. Homegrown Cannabis Co. offers regular seeds of Tangerine Queen. Apart from cutting down the costs of acquiring buds, it also enhances the overall experience.
