No matter what time of day it is, enjoying some mimosa after a long day can be relaxing. Mimosa the cannabis strain, that is. Sure, the drink may be delicious and refreshing, but you cannot go wrong with a well-balanced hybrid strain with high levels of THC, and that is fairly new on the market.
This Mimosa strain review post will tell you everything you need to know about this Indica-dominant hybrid.
Description of Mimosa Weed Strain
Mimosa, the strain, is a hybrid with a good balance in effects (as discussed below). It is a cross between the parent strains Purple Punch and Clementine. Purple Punch is a popular indica-dominant strain, while Clementine is known for its strong sativa effects. Together, they bring about a heavy balance mixed with high potency. Mimosa Strain THC levels have been recorded between 17-30% (with a 20.5% average).
This strain was created by Symbiotic Genetics, who was able to find a good balance between strong Indica and Sativa strains. It is a fairly new strain, being created in 2018. Since then, Mimosa has quickly risen in popularity. And there is no surprise why. Mimosa is considered one of today’s fastest-growing strains (in popularity and availability). Even with this, however, seeds for this strain have been said to be difficult to find.
Mimosa Strain Effects
The reason for Mimosa’s quick rise to strain fame is its high potency mixed with well-balanced effects. If you take a look at the best cannabis strains out there, they all have some similarities: they are either high in potency, offer well-balanced effects or both! It may not be long before we see Mimosa, or a child strain from Mimosa, rise to join the best strains ever.
Here are the common effects associated with Mimosa:
I would say these effects are for the Mimosa cannabis strain and not the drink, however I would also say some Mimosa drinkers would agree that these effects are similar. As for the strain, expect these effects to hit strong once the Mimosa kicks in. Due to its potency, Mimosa is actually not ideal for rookie smokers. Instead, rookie smokers may want to try some Blue Dream.
Once the effects kick in, Mimosa will start to make you feel uplifted and energetic. It will improve your mood. You may want to go outside, go out and do things. It may make you more socially interactive. Also, it will relax your body, allowing you to be energetic, but not too much. With its high levels of THC and uplifting effects, you could possibly replace a strong cup of coffee in the morning for some Mimosa (wake and bake!).
Besides having some recreational fun, this strain can help out many medical users. In fact, many of the effects listed above result in treating certain conditions. For example, Mimosa has the ability to improve your mood, making it a great strain to combat stress and even depression. Since this strain can make you feel energized, it is a great option for medical users who need that uplifting boost in the mornings.
More conditions that Mimosa can help treat include:
In addition to helping out in the mornings, it should be noted that Mimosa is not ideal for nighttime use. This is due to the fact that it can bring you energy and may possibly keep you up late and away from sleeping. Try an indica strain for nighttime use instead.
Flavors and Scents
Wondering why this cannabis strain was named after an alcoholic beverage? Well, that really lies in the flavors and scents of the strain. It tastes and smells very similar to the drink, hence the name. So, if you have ever had a Mimosa drink, then you know what to expect from the strain.
One strong aroma known to come from the Mimosa strain is fruit punch. Other tropical flavors can also be found in the strain. Certain terpenes, including those of herbal and pine, contribute to Mimosa’s flavors and aromas.
That’s all for the post. What do you think about Mimosa? Is it a one-time try, or would you come back to it? Just like the drink, you can enjoy some of it at any time of the day. Thanks for reading!
