New Strains Alert: Golden Tangie, Fire Alien Strawberry, and More

This week, we’re dropping a few Leafly user-submitted strains alongside cuts by Calyx Garden, OG Raskal, Archive Seeds, and Bert Baccarat & Los Angeles Kush. Golden Tangie and Tangie Ghost Train are this week’s two sativa-dominant crosses that have stimulating, mood-elevating effects reinforced by the funky fruit-forward terpene profile of Tangie. These herbal, tropical flavored buds are a great addition to picnics, hikes, nights at the club, and chores in or outside the house.

These stimulating crosses are counterbalanced by a few OG-rich hybrids, like Race Fuel OG and El Perro. While not entirely sedative, these hybrid crosses lean on pleasurable physical effects and smile-inducing euphoria that can help take the edge off at the end of the workday or temper stress and minor pain throughout the day. The Dessert also combines the indica-dominant genetics of Granddaddy Purple with the CBD-dominant strain Harlequin to create an enjoyable medicinal strain that helps some consumers overcome stress and anxiety while catching a positive, supplementary glow.

   Race Fuel OG

Race Fuel OG (aka Race Fuel) by Archive Seeds is a potent hybrid steeped in gassy, earthy genetics. Created from the “High Octane” OG phenotype of OG Kush x Face Off OG, Race Fuel OG harnesses the intense diesel fuel aroma of “High Octane” while incorporating the deep body effects as well as citrus and pine aromas from Face Off OG. Race Fuel’s strong OG Kush backbone gives it mid-range potency with flavor to spare. The strain’s effects hit with a rush of energy to the head and settles down into a cozy, weighted stone that can help abate anxiety, ADD/ADHD, minor pain, and a lack of appetite.

   El Perro

El Perro is an award-winning cannabis collaboration between Bert Baccarat, Firerock Farms, and Los Angeles Kush. This potent hybrid is a cross of Stardawg (Nag Champa Cut) and True OG, and won 1st place at the 2017 High Time’s SoCal Cannabis Cup for Best Hybrid Flower. El Perro (aka The Dog) reeks of skunk, musk, and pine, creating a pronounced and unique terpene profile that will challenge the palate. This strain’s cerebral relaxation helps you shrug off stress and provides a soothing, pervasive body high that promotes stationary activities.
