To breed Sativa dominant Tangerine Dream weed, growers crossed two strains, G13 and Neville’s Haze, and then crossed the resulting plant with G13 a second time. G13 is a much mythologised strain, allegedly created by the CIA, while Neville’s Haze is named after a famous cannabis grower who’s been on the run from American authorities since 1991. It does have its own story to tell; it was the outright winner of the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2010. The name comes from the German Kraut rock band, founded in 1967, that are still recording and touring today.
