Strain Review: Sour Tangie CO2 Vape Pen from Kalapooya Fire

Hello PNW fans! Thanks for joining us for another strain review here in the PNW CannaReviews HQ! Today we’re reviewing the Sour Tangie CO2 vape pen from Kalapooya Fire! Kalapooya Fire is a new brand in the legal cannabis industry and these are the BEST vape pens we’ve found so far on the market.

Kalapooya Fire works with premier farms in Oregon such as Phantom Pharms and a select few others. They only choose to work with farms that fit their mission of providing a quality, craft product that is a step above the rest.

Packaging & Construction

Each box looks like a match box and the cartridges are designed to look like a match stick.The batteries are painted to look like wood grain (not stickered!), even going so far as to have knots on some of them and not on others. The cartridges are manufactured to work best with their branded batteries. To make sure that you get the best hit each cartridge comes with their battery.

Each battery has a variable air flow and variable temp control so you can control the size of your hit and the strength of your high.

Each matchbox has a specific logo of the farm that worked with Kalapooya for that strain and shows the level of detail Kalapooya put in for the branding side of things!

The Experience

Kalapooya Fire captures the original terpenes before processing the oils so every strain tastes just like the flower it was processed from. The Sour Tangie has a great (if slightly muted) citrus flavor, with a strong gassy, diesel-like tangie flavor, and is very pleasant to smoke. The high comes on quickly and is much stronger than the Pirate’s Eye we reviewed last. The Sour Tangie is for those who are looking for a gassy hit and a very strong high.


There aren’t too many flaws with this other than a few. First off, you pay for the packaging. Even though they are working on lowering the cost, these are still one of the more expensive pens on the market in Oregon. However, you get what you pay for and these are definitely worth the price. The flavor also isn’t as long lasting as the Pirate’s Eye strain was. The only other flaw I found is that the battery needs a pre-heat function. Your first hit is never as strong as the rest and having a pre-heat would alleviate that.

Thanks for watching our next review of the Kalapooya Fire Matchstik vape pens. These are definitely PNWCR Approved and we recommend these to anyone, not just those looking for an easier way to consume on the go.
