About Pootie Tang
Pootie Tang is an early 2000s film directed by Louis C.K. from a Chris Rock sketch. It parodies the way black actors were represented in the “blaxploitation” genre films of the 70s, but fails to notice that treating female characters just as poorly in its own plot isn’t a good look. Regardless, you don’t really have to know that to smoke it! It’s just that if you hear people talking about Pootie Tang, the strain, it’s probably because piggybacking on a then-popular film has its benefits when it comes to brand recognition.
In its home state of Colorado, the strain has a lot of staying power. It’s a multi-layered hybrid of regional favorites, including Tang Tang, LA Kush, and some Blue Sonja. The product tastes kind of like orange Kool-Aid, has an outdated cultural reference for a name, and is a lot of fun to smoke either way.
You can’t be positive about what you’re getting when you buy Pootie Tang since the THC levels have a wide berth of around 10% (it ranges from 16% to 26%). If you can nab a batch from the high end of the spectrum, you’ll have a one-stop-shop for warm tingling on your hands, with the unmistakable flavor of a fake citrus drink. The waves of influence from the Pootie Tang flavor won’t put you down on your couch. You’ll be lifted up, ready to relax but also motivated and energized. You may even be able to fix an arousal issue with a little drag of Pootie Tang.
(Every single sentence with “Pootie Tang” in it is going to sound weird. We understand this. We just can’t do anything about it.)
So assuming you’re on-board to smoke a fruity Pootie Tang, you might be wondering what it’s good for, other than an excuse to say “pootie.” At the upper end of the THC levels, this strain can be a great fix for headaches and migraines, as well as chronic pain conditions that cause spasms or fatigue. If you suffer from depression, you might be uplifted by tasting a little tang as you hit that sweet pootie.
The plant has long colas the color of olives with a deep amber finish beneath the hairs and tiny white crystals. It’s a very ambitious resin-producer, so growers like Pootie Tang as a source of high-quality concentrates.
