Mimosa (also known as Purple Mimosa) is a sativa-dominant hybrid born under the Californian sun from the union of two delicious fruity strains, Purple Punch and Clementine. Featuring a massive 20 to 27% THC content on average, it is a potent cocktail of happiness and energy, much like the drink it is named after.
Given its high THC levels, Mimosa should be approached with caution even by seasoned users. Its onset is swift and powerful, beginning with a strong euphoric buzz that elevates the mood, uplifts and liberates you from the stresses of everyday life. This cascades into a burst of creative energy, focusing the mind and making even the most challenging tasks seem more manageable. For this reason, Mimosa is an excellent wake-and-bake choice that can set a new tone to a sluggish morning, filling you up with positivity and motivation. It will also add sparkle to just about any social gathering, providing an afternoon filled with laughter and joy. Just make sure to smoke early enough unless you want to keep the party going for the whole night!
As it mirrors the effects of an energising, uplifting cocktail, Mimosa can be utilised in various medical conditions. Thanks to a high limonene content, the strain can do wonders for those struggling with a lack of energy due to chronic fatigue or the lack of motivation and enthusiasm caused by depression and stress. By dispelling the worries, Mimosa facilitates focus and removes mental obstacles, which is especially helpful in attention deficit disorders. Furthermore, the strain’s anti-inflammatory properties, enhanced by pinene and caryophyllene, help relieve headaches, joint pains and muscle tension.
Mimosa is known to cause a strong cottonmouth even for experienced users, so ensure you stay hydrated when consuming this strain. Due to its potency, paranoia and anxiety may also occur, especially in users sensitive to these conditions. Make sure to exercise caution and start slowly, beginning with a single puff.
As a highly energising strain, Mimosa should be avoided at night, as it may interfere with sleep.
Taste & Smell
Upon the first interaction, Mimosa engages your senses with a fragrant tropical aroma, revealing a strong citrus punch reminiscent of ripe oranges and tangerines. This is complemented by undertones of earthy richness and pine freshness, courtesy of pinene. The flavour reflects the aroma, with an initial burst of sharp, fresh citrus swiftly followed by a subtle sweetness. This tropical sweetness gradually gives way to an earthy finish, leaving a pleasant, refreshing aftertaste behind.
The plant’s large conical buds display a vibrant colour palette – with a green backdrop, complemented by fiery orange hairs, a white frosty layer of trichomes and a hint of purple from its Purple Punch parent.
Mimosa is a relative newcomer to the market, having been created in sunny California in 2017 by Symbiotic Genetics. As a child of two potent sativa-dominant strains, Purple Punch and Clementine, it has inherited the vibrancy and zest of its parents. As a result, it provides a citrusy cocktail of uplifting and energising effects that is stealing the hearts of cannasseurs worldwide.
Mimosa poses a moderate challenge to growers and therefore is best left to those with some level of experience. It is known to need a little more nutrients than your average plant, so you will need to supplement it to help it thrive.
The plants can grow indoors and outdoors in hot, sunny conditions, but outdoor cultivation provides much higher plants and, subsequently, better harvest.
Mimosa flowers within 9 to 11 weeks, yielding roughly 350 – 400 gr/m2 indoors and 500 – 500 grams per plant outdoors.
