Mango Tango is one of the more popular hybrid strains of marijuana because it has potent indica-like effects while still having the fruity, pungent flavor that is common for a sativa. This strain even looks potent to the naked eye because when grown right, it will be covered in trichomes. It definitely packs a serious punch and is not a strain for the beginner smoker.

Mango Tango Attributes
It has a subtle pine and peach flavor that can be detected when you exhale, which gives it it’s fruity name. It also has a potent aroma when smelling the buds raw- it almost smells like it has citrus sprayed on it. This is normal for this strain and many people enjoy it because of the amazing taste and smell. The buds are incredibly sticky to the touch, which makes for a difficult time if you like to roll up joints. A regular pipe might be a better option for this heavy hitting strain.

In addition to tasting and looking wonderful, Mango Tango provides an exceptional high. It is technically a hybrid strain, even though it won the first place for best sativa in the 2015 Southern California Cannabis Cup. It is more of a sativa-dominant hybrid that provides an entire body high like an indica strain would. Mango Tango is not technically one of the more energetic strains out there, but it is great for relaxing at night and relieving pain.

A good puff on some Mango Tango can have you forgetting all about that throb in your knee. The parents of Mango Tango are Tangie and True OG strains, which are both extremely potent in their own right. The OG couch-lock effects are very obvious when you first take a puff on some Mango Tango, as well as the flavor from the Tangie parent. This combination results in one of the most unique smoking experiences, hence the first place trophy.

Mango Tango is sought after by so many people because it combines the best of both worlds for medical marijuana patients. Most patients have an indica for the pain relieving qualities, yet also keep a sativa on hand because of the exceptional taste. Indica strains have always been known for being potent but not tasting as good as sativas, until now. Mango Tango has given many people a simple choice of bud when they visit their dispensary, rather than choosing two or three different strains.

The strain is known to be particularly potent with a few other attributes that make it a bit more special than your run of the mill marijuana strain. The strain is also known for a few attributes that are particular to it such as its aroma, potency, and overall feeling that it gives the user.
Though the stronger the marijuana the more likely that the user is going to experience adverse affects, Madzilla gives the user a more mellow high that is pleasant and that can help combat common medical issues.
Much like other strains of marijuana, this can be used for medical purposes like glaucoma, pain, and other issues. This strain is a cross between King Louis XIII and Skywalker Sweet Pine so it is aromatic and somewhat floral.

While society’s view on marijuana is now in a transitional phase, with four states and various cities taking up voter-based initiatives to legalize the substance for both recreational and medicinal purposes. The cause of this, is of course due to an assortment of factors, which now lead us to believe marijuana is not as harmful as we once had previously perceived. New evidence today actually contradicts our prior beliefs, showing that cannabis is actually an effective source of medicine, for those who struggle with a vast assortment of differing conditions.

Today we are going to take an in-depth approach to the marijuana strain “Russian Assassin”. First off, Russian Assassin is an indica dominant hybrid strain of cannabis that has proven itself to me as a highly potent form of medicine, with medical benefits ranging from all ends of the spectrum. This came as no surprise to me, being that this strain is a hybrid stemming from three powerful indica hybrids; Skywalker, Lemon OG Kush, and Headband.

As a medicinal marijuana patient myself, I found this medicine most successful to combat against:
• Stress and Anxiety
• Nausea and Lack of Appetite
• Insomnia and Other Sleep Deprivation Issues
• Virtually All Forms of Body Pain
• Those Struggling with Depression

Similar to most forms of treatments out there, I noticed some minor side effects from this medication. These side effects were simply limited to dry mouth and dry eyes, which may cause acute irritation to some. However, I found this to be entirely irrelevant, based upon the nearly instantaneous relief I felt from this strain of cannabis. After smoking this through a water filtered glass bong, the medicinal properties were detected almost immediately. Within less than five minutes my nausea and discomforting body pain began to subside. I found the buds to have a dense and heavy appearance, which is fairly typical for indica flowers. Russian Assassin actually had quite a pleasant taste, best described as a sweet, fruity, and pungent taste. Additionally, as with most marijuana strains I found this breed to have a very distinct aroma. I find the optimal use of Russian Assassin to be a couple hours before bed, due to the fact that this cannabis strain allows me to comfortably have a light snack before bed and my pain and discomfort recedes. The entirety of these factors allows me to rest peacefully, especially due to the powerful sedative effects.

This is the perfect strain for a “rainy day” since it will turn any day into a good one. Also, the strain was ranked fairly high under the sleepiness category, so it would most likely be great before bedtime or insomnia. Another review said it has a nice come-down, meaning no burnt-out, lethargic feelings. Anyone doing a stealth grow or growing in a small place can easily rely on this strain.

Medical marijuana has long been known to be a safe and effective treatment for the symptoms of cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, pain, glaucoma, epilepsy, and other conditions. However, there are many medical marijuana strains to chose from and the choice can be daunting. Pink Kush is one of the most beloved strains because of its many benefits and long lasting effectiveness.

Its texture is dense and resinous while it looks like it is coated in sugar crystal and reportedly smells like flowers and fresh vanilla. Not surprisingly, Pink Kush also has a very sweet taste that is compared by many to southern sweet tea. It is grown in a dry climate in an average of 60 days. The plant grows to an average height but has a high yield for its kind.

While its looks may make it come across like a dainty strain, Pink Kush is extremely potent, with a high THC level. Most users experience an active stone for the first 15 minutes, which makes them euphoric and happy, and then transition to a more relaxed, sleepy and or hungry state. The only downsides that some users experience from Pink Kush are a dry mouth and dry eyes.

Besides the taste, smell and high, Pink Kush is most beloved for its ability to mend serious medical complaints in patients. In terms of healing, Pink Kush is most effective in treating pain, muscle spasms, insomnia, anxiety, lack of appetite, nausea, depression, low sex drive, and epilepsy.
