The indica-dominant hybrid Mango Tango derives its name from the sweet and pungent mango-like scent it emits with piney undertones. It won first place in 2015 at the SoCal Cannabis Cup.
When ready for harvest, its buds are spade-shaped, mint-green, and immense with tawny hairs entwined throughout.
THC levels of Mango Tango are high, averaging between 24-26%. Reviewers describe this strain’s high as long-lasting and powerful, placing the mind in a state of euphoria that leaves the consumer seemingly spacey. It relaxes the muscles of spams and tension, causing the consumer to feel sedated throughout body and mind. Mango Tango is best consumed at nighttime after completing all your tasks of the day, and bedtime draws near.
Adverse effects include paranoia or anxiousness if tolerance is unknown and you consume high doses due to Mango Tango’s potent THC content.
Recently, we have seen batches of Mango Tango grown with incredibly high levels of Myrcene, and THC levels in the high teens. Some users recommend this version of the strain for recovery and pain management. See the below image from a lab test of one of these buds.
