Review: This bright and pungent strain looks and smells almost identical to Forbidden Fruit with its strong citrus, grapefruit notes and bright appearance. While Forbidden Fruit is indica-leaning, the effects of Purple Tangie are the opposite of that cultivar with a heady, cerebral high. I was already well-rested and wide-awake when I took my first couple hits from the fresh bowl, and it just doubled down on my energetic mood and chattiness, though it did not make me feel jittery or anxious in the least. The taste, while sweet, does not precisely mirror the scent. I go for more exotic tastes — the sweeter, the better — and I was not disappointed. Grower Jeremy Jones happened to drop by Great Barrier Reefer while I was picking up his strain, and we spoke about the history of his company and his family, and it’s obvious that Purple Tangie knows what it is doing, particularly when it comes to the eponymous strain. I’m looking forward to trying more of its exclusive strains in the future as well as seeing what it does with common cannabis varieties.
Cannabis effects vary wildly from patient to patient based on a multitude of factors, including THC tolerance, brain chemistry and personal taste. This review is based on the subjective experience of one patient.
