After lengthy consideration and incorporation of Best Dosage staff opinions, I decided to only dock the Burnwell Tangie Flower 1g a point on convenience. While I discovered that the texture and cure job of this gram weren’t the best, my final score ultimately pivoted around the strength of this gram’s price.
At $10 per gram, you really can’t complain too much about buds being slightly dry or poorly cured. My tiny Burnwell Tangie nugs were definitely crystally and delicious even if their smoke was a little bit harsh.
This gram was from one of my last trips to Cannabis & Glass. Knowing that buds stay good for at least a few months when properly stored, I saved these nugs for a rainy day when I felt like breaking out my Volcano Classic Vaporizer.
To be perfectly honest, I am not a fan of flower. It’s beautiful and aromatic, but it’s a pain to work with. Vapes that automatically ignite deliver cannabinoids with nothing more than a lip-grasp and inhalation.
Flower, though, you have to grind, load, clear, et cetera. So, the lazy cannabis aficionado that I am, I usually steer clear of flower unless I’m feeling particularly feisty.
Nope, the convenience of vaping my Burnwell Tangie gram wasn’t improved just because the nugs were tiny. I will say, however, that the slight dryness of the buds made them easy to grind. They didn’t stick to the blades of the grinder.
Tangie is named for its almost overpowering tangerine flavor. A cross of Skunk, (a classic strain) and California Orange (one among thousands of modern mutants) this strain’s flavor is both nostalgic and distinct.
If you are a fan of sativas that absolutely reek of oranges, limes, and everything citrus, this sweet-smelling and even sweeter-tasting strain will leave you having a conniption fit. Just remember that Burnwell’s take on Tangie doesn’t really do the phenotype justice.
Try breaking off a top cola of a huge Tangie plant, freeze-curing it, and vaporizing it raw for the ultimate connoisseur experience.
Smoking Burnwell Tangie is like an orange-flavored cherry bomb exploding inside your head. The rough texture of the dry smoke perfectly fits this pyrotechnic metaphor.
By this I mean that my Burnwell Tangie Flower kicked in during the expected timeframe. While I might have some minor qualms about the finer points of this organic, indoor-grown cannabis gram, there’s nothing I can complain about when it comes to activation time.
I’m a sucker for a good, fruity sativa. Even if it isn’t the tastiest or best-textured grow, I’m willing to be a little more lenient where the terpenes terpinolene, limonene, and bisabolol are concerned.
So, I won’t knock a point from the effects of my Tangie gram from Burnwell. I might just say that Burnwell would do well to thoroughly examine its production processes to ensure they meet the standards laid down by major metropolitan producers.
Around $10 per gram is what I’m used to paying for black-market weed. It just seems natural to shed a ten-dollar-bill in exchange for a gram of flower.
I almost wish I’d paid a little bit more, however. With slightly higher margins, Burnwell might be incentivized to shell out for adequate labeling paper, more distinctive jars, and other hallmarks of self-actualized cannabis brands.
Burnwell is my favorite underdog in the Washington cannabis market. Instead of being based in Seattle (or at least Bellingham or Olympia), Burnwell is way out in the rural areas surrounding Spokane.
It’s not a bad area. It’s where I live, after all.
Being based in Eastern Washington is undeniably, however, a major disadvantage. Porting your wares out on I-90 to the west side is unreasonable especially considering the competition. The market in the east, however, is very limited — even with the (yes, still illegal) crossover of intrepid of Idaho residents.
What I’m trying to say is it’s impressive what Burnwell has accomplished. They’ve pioneered an entirely original cultivation method that checks all my boxes for quality control. There’s just something wrong in the mix.
Tangie is one of the best-off of Burnwell’s strains. I think this cultivar might just be juicier than normal.
With a properly tightened ship, Burnwell could be the keystone of Eastern Washington’s connoisseur cannabis market. Let’s wait and see.
I’d posit that I’m the target audience for Burnwell Tangie. Admittedly, I like vapes more than flower, but my love for sativas overrides everything else.
Still, for the quality Burnwell has currently attained, these buds should be targeted at a slightly lower income bracket. If this is Eastern Washington’s definition of “connoisseur,” we’re in for a steep learning curve.
I vaped my Burnwell Tangie Flower in a Volcano Classic Vape. I ended up liking this strain enough to vape the entire gram — I split it into three bowls.
I’d say the dosage I used would work for pretty much anyone. For smaller bowls, break your Tangie gram into five sections.
What else can we address about this promising-yet-disappointing sativa gram from Burnwell?
Tangie users report that this strain is great for spacing out, creative activities, or exercising. It isn’t quite as loopy or zany as some sativas, but it’s also the furthest thing from a pureblooded indica imaginable. Like most THC strains, Tangie might be good for pain.
The dominant terpenes in Burnwell Tangie are alpha-bisabolol and beta-caryophyllene. Bisabolol is among the rarer terpenes while caryophyllene is found in reasonable quantities in almost every cannabis strain. Both bisabolol and caryophyllene have been researched for their potential benefits for pain.
Burnwell doesn’t provide a lot of information about itself. From what we’ve gathered, however, the buds this Columbia Basin cannabis producer cultivates are organic.
They’re definitely indoor-grown — Burnwell has the pictures to prove it. This small producer’s cultivation facility has skylights that can be opened or closed, allowing natural light to supplement Burnwell’s artificial lighting.
If you’re on the hunt for organic cannabis flower in Spokane as a California transplant or a connoisseur of any other color, Burnwell is the closest thing you’ll get to Cali Kush quality.
