Tangerine Kush hits quickly for an indica -- shortly after savoring the strain’s citrus-tinged smoke, consumers may feel some cerebral stimulation. Thoughts may flow in a loud, freely-associative inner monologue and may temporarily cause smokers to tune out from their immediate surroundings. Some physical effects may be present as well, like a concerted pressure around the eyes and temples and, sometimes, an increase in salivation. Some may find that they’re creatively inspired or compelled to take on complex, analytical tasks. Within a short time, however, this mental energy slips into a more mellow and soothing body high. Users may find that they’re able to breathe more deeply and easily and may notice that any lingering muscular tension is somewhat relieved. At this point, any previously cerebral mindset begins to take a backseat to a more pleasantly cloudy and distracted headspace. As smokers being to melt into their surroundings and feel the outside world recede into the background, they may want to immerse themselves in a purely sensory atmosphere. Moody music or visually-engaging movies may help to set the right tone for enjoying Tangerine Kush’s spacey, psychedelic high. Unfortunately, this strain’s effects are said to last shorter than average. Because of its sedative character, Tangerine kush is best reserved for evening or nighttime use.
Tangerine Kush’s versatile properties can also have value for medical cannabis patients. Its early sativa focus can briefly aid concentration for those with attention deficit disorder. Its mood-altering effects also temporarily take the edge off of stress and depression. More frequently, Tangerine Kush’s body high can serve as an analgesic for aches and pains, whether they’re the result of chronic illness or simply due to everyday irritations like headaches and nausea. Patients who are prone to panic or anxiety may want to consume this strain with caution, as its early “mindrace” effects can lead to paranoia in the wrong circumstances.
