Tangerine Dream Auto-Flowering feminized cannabis seeds are the auto-flowering version of an Amsterdam-born, sativa-dominant plant bred from a combination of two strains: popular G13 and a descendant of classic Haze.
This sativa-dominant strain develops large, dense buds that highlight it's 30% indica geneology, and is dusted with a generous, resinous amount of trichomes that facilitate a strong body high when consumed in large doses.
What Does Tangerine Dream Taste Like?

Tangerine Dream gets its name from its tangy, fruity scent and taste; upon consumption, it delivers a head rush that can improve mood and leave you feeling cheerful. Depending on your constitution, you may experience the burst of energy as happily lazy, or creative and productive. Tangerine Dream cannabis seeds are particularly notable for their unique therapeutic traits: the flowers will grant you increased energy in addition to their considerable painkilling power. For this reason, Tangerine Dream is the perfect choice for people who require some serious relief, but don't have the time to take a few days off and relax with a more calming indica strain.
Tangerine Dream Mental Effects

In addition to a deep, cheerful relaxation, Tangerine Dream cannabis seeds offer mental clarity, and could be just the thing when you're feeling a bit foggy in the mind from fatigue. The strain can also be a useful treatment for alleviating stress, and anxiety, counteracting the effects of depression, and soothing an upset stomach. Some users may also find it helpful for reducing inflammation. In larger doses, Tangerine Dream can induce sleep, though we recommend beginning with a small amount before increasing your consumption, to ensure you don't feel undesired effects.
Tangerine Dream Grow Information

Tangerine Dream Auto-Flowering cannabis seeds produce very high levels of THC — up to 24%. Easy to grow, it is a suitable strain for amateur gardeners, and presents the best results when grown indoors. The strain tends to flower in eight to nine weeks, and produces a good yield of up to 500 grams per square meter.

An indica-dominant hybrid strain, Critical Purple Auto-Flowering feminized cannabis seeds trace their lineage to popular Critical Mass and Big Bud. Originally, the pair were bred together in order to improve the yield and stability of Big Bud. Critical Mass is known for extremely heavy, dense flowers, and our Critical Purple cannabis seeds carry on this desirable trait.
Auto Critical Purple Effects?

One of our highest THC strains, Critical Purple is a potent plant, expressing its indica roots with a heavy, relaxed effect. If you're new to marijuana or even just to this strain, you may find early treatments with Critical Purple leave you feeling completely sedated, but whatever your tolerance, this strain is certainly best kept for evening or nighttime use.
In addition to sedation that can ease you into a deep, restful sleep, Critical Purple is known for reducing chronic pain, calming anxiety and stress, soothing nausea, and even lessening headaches and migraines. The strain can also serve to enhance appetite, a helpful side effect for people who are suffering from an eating disorder or undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments for cancer. In the latter instance, Critical Purple's anti-emetic quality is also helpful.
Grow Critical Purple Cannabis

Our Critical Purple cannabis seeds have been paired with a cannabis species called ruderalis. While this type of plant does not do much to alter the effects of the strain, it does make for very easy growing. Auto-flowering plants utilize hardy, Russian-born ruderalis' ability to proceed completely unaided into the flowering stage; this means the grower need not worry about the ideal time to alter the lighting hours in the greenhouse.
Critical Purple Strain Yield

As such, Critical Purple cannabis seeds are quite easy to germinate and grow, and do very well indoors, in a hydroponic or soil planting medium. Though they require a long flowering period — as many as 11 weeks — the results are well worth the wait. When harvest time arrives, the bushy plants will have produced numerous buds full of medicinal and recreational possibilities; expect up to 450 grams of fresh flower per square meter indoors, and about 300 grams per plant, outside. The "Purple" in the name refers to the purplish tint that growers may discover on the thick, heavy flowers.

So a little about my setup I'll b suing a dwc method with rock wool and hydration clay. Starting off I'll b using a 3.5 gallon buck then switching to a 5 gallon. I'll b using 300 cfm per hour of oxygen grade air pump with 2 six inch air stones. Lighting will consist of led to start off I'll b using 500watt mars light and mid grow I'll b amount it up with another 1200 watts of mars lighting so there will b a total of 1700 watts in the end. I'll b using general hydroponic master kit nutes with great white root stimulater and and cal mag. All water will b reverse osmosis with a starting ppm of 6. And will b ph daily to 5.8.

Another week passes. The girls got there first dose of food last night. I've done a light feeding of 3 ml of micro. Grow. And bloom. With a splash of great white root bacteria. I really love that stuff
the tangerine [emoji521] is growing really nice. She seams strong and her root growth is really good [emoji4] now the purple
she seams to be a little harder to grow. All is well with her nice root growth but you can see a little nutrients deprived. So I gave her calmag with the reg dose here is my general grow micro bloom chart

Weekly Rez changes. New ph pen and general hydroponic calmag in the critical purple is what has changed so far it seams lime the purple is nitrogen sensitive so I hade to lower her intake but they are growing grate no pistoles yet but that's good thing more grow time. FYI growers choice seed co now has gorilla glue omg yes please. So here are my weekly pics



First two are the tangerine dream and then the critical purple and a pic of both now the purp is smaller due to the nitrogen issue it slowed the growth and ph pen being out of calabration but the issue is under control. Live ,love ,grow

I started out indoors with the 400w MH for veg and 1000w HPS for flower method. Only topped out of necessity and did regular defoliation. No other manipulation. Did that for about 10 years until I moved to HI, it's been outdoor/greenhouse ever since. Those I just let Mother Nature do all the heavy lifting. Thanks to her, everyone has a green thumb out here! Been itching to get back into indoor grows, too many eyes on my greenhouse these days. I am def gonna ScroG, I find being hands on theraputic. Just a matter of choosing lighting. I am leaning CMH, maybe supplement with LED or use LED for veg, CMH/HPS for flower. Time for some new strains too. Been toking the same stuff for years, ready for a change.
