I thought the Tangerine Cookies cross was a no brainer. Tangie is renowned for its loud orange citrus flavor but can sometimes lack density. Thin Mint is a tasty, potent legend with rock-hard dense buds caked in frost. We searched through many Tangies to find a special male that reeked of orange peels as a mate for the Thin Mint and we found it.

There was an article in the March 2016 High Times about the tastiest strains that tested the highest in terpenes. Terpenes in those tests ranged from about 2% to the highest ever tested by High Times at 4.1% (Durban Poison). Tangerine Cookies lab tests showed that our sample of Tangerine Cookies had 5.5% terpenes and 28.87% THC.

The resulting Tangerine Cookies was everything we had hope for and more. The cross between the two reintroduced hybrid vigor to bring a surprisingly high yield from a cross of two mediocre yielders. Every bud from the top cola to the bottom buds were rock hard and dripped with resin. To say the buds were stunning is an understatement.

The smell is mouth-watering and LOUD. Fresh and dried buds will fill a room with the smell of orange cream soda. The taste matches the smell exactly and lingers on the taste buds.

The effect is energizing, happy and extremely potent.

I can’t say enough good things about this strain. Tangerine Cookies is a rock-star.

Tangerine Cookies tests out at 28.87% THC-A.

    It’d all about the genotype. There must’ve been 20 different breeders that made 20 different Tangie x GSC crosses. In my humble opinion, only two of the 6-7 I personally grew out were connoisseur quality. The phenomenal Oni Noodles Tropicana Cookies, and this baby right here, Elev8’s Tangerine Cookies. They are spectacularly unique plants, bred especially when compared to one another, especially considering that they have identical parental genetics. That alone is incredible. But as I said, it’s all about the genotype. No two Tangies will have exactly the same genetics unless one is a clone of the other. And making the right choice when it comes to parental genetics is the key.

    There’s lots of talented breeders out there, but there’s so many working with similar genetics (read: Clones with Identical Genes) especially out west, that the same often mediocre results can be expected. R&D in breeding is crucial. Especially when making regular seeds, because males are really difficult to ID which will be the best parents.

    For example, I’ve used male Apollo 11 plants in one of my hybrid projects.. I had 4 possible fathers. One was sticky, stinky, and had visible terpenes, but a very loose structure, two didn’t really smell, but was resinous and had a dense flower structure and was the tallest male, three wasn’t sticky or stinky but had the most amazing structure, and four was an outlier, with large Indica leaves, a short, stocky, and bushy stature and a pleasant smell.

    The females were all a very nice cut of Cherry Punch. I thought the first plant would produce the best seeds, but I was wrong. Although it appeared to be the best male, it didn’t pass on those remarkable traits. A quirk of male cannabis plants that I’ll never understand. Some of the offspring were excellent, but too few.

    The second father did better, remarkably passing on the most terpenes despite apparently lacking in their expression itself. Three was the best father, despite lacking resinous flowers, visible trichomes, or a strong scent, only with its structure going for it, but it was the plant most likely to pass in Apollo 11’s most desirable traits including its unique terpenes, a solid trichome coat, which was the mother’s most obvious winning trait, as well as the structure I chose to test it for. The fourth did indeed pass on mostly indica looking traits, as well as its terpenes which matched the Cherry Punches well. But when it came to the smoke, even 4 had a sativa dominant effect, despite its physical appearance.

    Three was the undisputed winner, but in a lineup, he would probably be passed over in favor of a more apparently expressive male. Which is why R&D – particularly with males, is so important. The most apparently 🔥 male may not pass those traits on to most of its offspring. It’s an unusual mystery of males (& some females too, though I’ve found that they more reliably pass on their genetic expressions), and of cannabis breeding generally.

    It’d all about the genotypes used to make the seeds.
