The Rex a.k.a Tangie is a fantastic offering from MedReleaf that will excite even the most refined connoisseur offering a refreshing tangerine aroma. Rex is a truly premium strain grown only in small batches; and patients are limited to 5g/month of this incredible flower. Rex unlike most varieties of Tangie is a 60% sativa 40% indica hybrid where most phenotypes lean more towards the Sativa side with a 70%/30% split. Tangie was first created by DNA Genetics in Amsterdam by crossing the genetics of California Orange and a Skunk hybrid; essentially it is a remake of sorts of the popular Tangerine Dream that was sought-after in the 1990s. Tangie as a general strain continues to win over and over again at the Cannabis Cups around the world, one time winning 10 prizes in 10 months! Tangie first became popular along the west coast but has quickly gained popularity in the Pacific Northwest.
Strain Name: Rex (Tangie)
Strain Details: Sativa Dominant Hybrid – THC: 17.7%, CBD: <0.00%,
The Rex is a thoroughly angelic looking flower! An alluring royal purple hue is perfectly and beautifully contrasted against vibrant fiery orange hairs that extend around the bud. Beneath the rich royal purple hue one can see a lawn of lime green at the core of this magnificent looking herb, while the entire flower is dusted in frosty crystals producing sticky buds.
What does it smell like?
The Rex has probably the most incredible aroma I have ever come across in a strain! The perfume of the Rex is truly where this strain shines, with the most potent and pungent, super of all super tangerine smells bursting forth upon first breathing in this strain!! If this strain allows you to smell past the incredible tangerine scent (which is what truly distinguishes it from other citrusy or fruity strains), there are subtle undertones of citrus sweetness and earthy sandalwood notes.
What does it taste like?
As the scent would indicate, Rex is one of the best tasting strains out there! Upon first inhale a huge burst of juicy mouthwatering tangerines hits you, followed by distinct tropical taste similar to a combination of pineapple, orange and lemons and polished off on the exhale with very subtle tones of spicy pepper
*Use and Effects:
The Rex provides a euphoric yet relaxed effect with a calm creative focus, and happiness. This provides an uplifting cerebral high with relaxing body effects and allows the user to truly enjoy every spectacular element of this herb and the world around them. I have consumed this strain through a number of methods – through a water pipe, joint and a home and portable vapourizer unit; all of which worked; however this strain did deliver the best taste and medicinal effects through the vaporizer.
