A Loss Of Appetite
When you hear the name Mimosa, you may picture yourself lounging beside the pool with the famous champagne and orange juice cocktail in your hand.
But have you been paying attention to up and coming cannabis strains like the Mimosa strain from Symbiotic Genetics? If so, you are probably picturing a joint in your hand rather than the cocktail.
Mimosa is a sativa-dominant hybrid (70% sativa: 30% indica) strain which was bred by combining the sativa Clementine and the indica Purple Punch.
Mimosa’s popularity has been steadily growing since its arrival on the cannabis scene in 2017. Smokers of Mimosa weed love this strain’s cerebral high and uplifting effects.
Following the initial euphoric buzz which tapers off gradually, it leaves you feeling happy, uplifted and energized.
If you were a bit of a lightweight drinker, you wouldn’t down a dozen Mimosa cocktails. Similarly, a responsible approach is required when smoking Mimosa weed.
Novice cannabis smokers would be wise to try a little at first just to see how they handle Mimosa’s effects. More seasoned cannabis smokers should find Mimosa far more manageable and enjoyable.
Aroma and Flavour
Mimosa’s delicious citrusy aroma and flavour are yet more reasons why this strain has become so popular among cannabis smokers.
Mimosa has inherited all of those wonderfully delicious citrusy orange aromas and flavours from its parent strain Clementine. However, these are infused with more subtle earthy and sour flavours too.
Appearance-wise, Mimosa has a dense coating of large cone-shaped buds with a heavy covering of milky-white trichomes. Hints of purple, from its parent strain Purple Punch, contrast beautifully with the heavily frosted look of the Mimosa plant.
Bright orange pistils growing prominently around the leaves and wintergreen calyxes make a Mimosa plant a sight to behold.
The strain has become known as a great pick-up line to attract some energy on those groggy mornings when you can’t get started (and real mimosas are unavailable). It has the same tropical citrus and berry feeling, sour yet sweet, but without the headache. In fact, you may even lose a headache you’ve already got when taking your cocktails in plant form. Just be warned that many users, even experienced ones, report very dry mouth when using this strain. Take extra care to stay hydrated when enjoying your mimosa.
Mimosa has many medical benefits thanks to its sativa-dominant genetics. Mimosa contains a significant amount of the following terpenes:
Both limonene and linalool are believed to elevate mood. Meanwhile, beta-caryophyllene is believed to be an effective stress reliever. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that Mimosa’s effects include reducing stress levels and treating mood disorders such as depression.
Mimosa is also considered to be an effective pain reliever, useful for treating headaches, joint and muscular pain among other painful conditions.
Mimosa’s energizing effects are great for sufferers of chronic fatigue who are looking for a much-needed energy boost to help them get through a busy day. Mimosa’s ability to reduce nausea is rated fairly low, as is its use as an appetite enhancer.
Mimosa’s popularity is only increasing and it is easy to see why. Its energizing and uplifting effect makes smoking Mimosa weed an enjoyable experience for both the recreational and medicinal cannabis smoker.
However, its relatively high THC content makes Mimosa a more suitable strain for an experienced rather a novice cannabis smoker.
