Mimosa is a sativa-dominant hybrid (70%) that is known for its euphoric and pleasant cerebral high. Growing the plant is relatively easy since it doesn’t need special care apart from some light training. Yields are above average, and your harvest will be full of delicious-smelling nugs.
Heritage & Genetics: Symbiotic Genetics bred the original Mimosa as a crossbreed between Clementine x Purple Punch. Both of its parents are quite popular in the Californian cannabis scene, mainly for their extraordinary taste. The strain is about 70% sativa and has a high THC content of about 20-22%.
Flavor & Aroma: Mimosa is one of the most terpene-rich strains on the market, containing high percentages of limonene and beta-caryophyllene, that give it a distinctively citrusy smell. The nug smells earthy and fresh while right after harvest. When vaped, Mimosa leaves a taste of tropical fruit and lemon while the aroma is floral and herbal. On the exhale, you might also note hints of berries.
Effect: Mimosa is a daytime strain, with pleasant cerebral effects. You’ll feel creative and energetic upon consuming this strain, and it might even help with a surge of productiveness. However, bear in mind that too much Mimosa will send you right back to the couch. Overall, a perfect choice if you engage in any creative activity.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Since it is a new entry in the cannabis world, Mimosa isn’t very popular with growers yet. It can grow to a medium height equally well indoors or outdoors, but it will need a lot of sunlight to emulate its native Emerald Triangle climate. Make sure that your grow area is well lit and is ventilated property. Also, if you want to promote its extraordinary terpene profile, you might want to grow it in a super soil mix. The yields are slightly above average, while the nugs are mildly frosty but very fragrant.
