Tangieland from Curated Cannabis on 01/05/2022. THC tested out to 31.954%.This was gifted to me but checking the menu at Mother Nature’s Remedy you can get an 8th of Mendo Breath out the door for $31.39 if the site is accurate. At the start of the year I found myself lucky enough to be invited back down to the Curated Cannabis facility to chat it up about all things cannabis, and while there I was gifted a couple samples to review, one of which was this Tangieland grown by Cathedral Green.
This single giant beastly bud is mostly a mix of lime and sage greens with subtle blooms of aubergine dotting nugscape, accompanied by gangly flare ups of ginger and burnt orange pistils, and a beautiful deluge of intact white and egg cream triches that fuzz over the landscape like snow on an old CRT TV.
The nose out the jar is overwhelming Jack Herer due to the high amount of Terpinolene I’m guessing, but there’s also a bit of a sweet musty tang that kicks around in the background as well. Busting open a bud the jack dissipates and has a sort of flat musty scent with a touch of floral, but comes off surprisingly muted overall. Busting it down by hand, the nug smoothly breaks apart as that jack scent amps back up, but also brings a hint of fruity sweetness to it that reminds me of a weak mango hi chew.
The dry pull on the joint is hard to discern, it’s very light, and hits with a peppery tang and a touch of mustiness underneath it. The inhale on the bong comes with a very light floral spice whereas the joint was fairly nondescript. The exhale on the bong is a muted peppery musk with a faint distant wisp of fruit whereas the joint is an extremely light spiced floral. While not particularly flavorful it should be noted that the smoke is incredibly easy on the lungs. It’s hard to describe but I’ve found myself saying it’s the closest you can get to the feel of vaping flower while still actually smoking it. Speaking of, cross checking the flavors on my GhostVapes MV1, at 170c I get a light semi-sweet floral followed up by a distant peppery jack bite, whereas at 185c it’s more of a generic musty floral.
The headchange hit with a near immediate sense of calm but left my ability to think and focus intact. One time in particular prior to smoking I found myself ramped up over the challenge of the day and afterward, the physical anxiety I felt moments earlier was completely obliterated, although the thoughts that generated that anxiety remained, I felt I was better equipped to work through them more efficiently. Over time that sense of calm ramped up and I found myself in a really easy going state, with a que sera sera attitude, and where all of my movements felt much more deliberate yet moderately delayed. Overall I’d say this is a good strain to keep on deck for a lazy Sunday or the start to a chill evening at home. It brings that really mellow vibe that will allow you to enjoy kicking back on the couch, but doesn’t wreck you cognitively, so you can consume your favorite sort of media without losing the thread and having to constantly rewind/reload.
All and all this is another visually stunning live cured entry from the fine folks at Curated Cannabis, and while the nose didn’t translate to the flavor on this one, if you like the effects as I’ve described them, for the ticket this goes for at Mother Nature’s Remedy (when in stock) I say you really can’t go wrong.
