The Mimosa strain is somewhat of a rookie champion rising above the competition. Literally topping the multiple best strain list during 2018, Mimosa became popular overnight. However, like the drink the strain takes its name after, Mimosa is best enjoyed during the day. A fresh hit of Mimosa after a full night of rest is reported to slip an energetic lift into the user. The tropical fruit infused high resembles the drink in multiple positive and negative ways. Perfect for “wake and baking” the high experienced will continue to elevate depending on intake and level of smoker. Once a tipping point is reached, the possibility of a burnout or “hangover” is increased. Not to be taken lightly, the burnout experience is a notion familiar to those that utilize Mimosa; the closer they come to the highlight of their buzz, so does the burnout make its way forward. Similar to the cocktail, Mimosa is most effective when taken slow and during the day. A cerebral kick to the head balances the energy received; leaving the user in a state of bliss and distraction.
A fruity aroma heightened by a distinctly picturesque outward appearance combine to shape a stylish hybrid. The purple outer layer, surrounded by white and purple infused trichomes are the result of the positive genetics received from both parents of the hybrid. Clementine and Purple Punch produce the purple and more so the tropical aroma that Mimosa is known for. The sativa split in Mimosa, while difficult for novice smokers to appreciate, is a feeling comparable to a clear Sunday morning that will create an adventure out of mundane activity.
Originating through the work of Symbiotic Genetics, the sativa leaning hybrid Mimosa was first introduced in 2017. Gaining full traction in 2018 after the public began to take notice of the vibrant appearance and aroma, Mimosa did not shy away from the spotlight. The citrus and cerebral appeal of the strain made it a contender in multiple top cannabis lists of 2018 as well as taking home best-newcomer for that year at Westword.com. Like the name implies, Mimosa is a casual party starter that gradually increases in potency before leveling off into a slow steadily decreasing decline. Through the combination of look, aroma, experience, and name recognition, Mimosa solidifies that new strains are doing more than pursue a more intense THC level of escapism.
Mimosa is a hybrid cross between the similarly tropical Clementine and Purple Punch strains. Both are known for their aromas and taste which has seemingly been taken directly from them to ensure Mimosa contains the best the strains have to offer. The cut is made, shifting the percentage of sativa to a bolstering 70% and leaving indica with only 30% left to make use of. This differential is key to the potency of the energy high found in Mimosa. The cerebral effects are caused by the THC averaging at 19-22% and with CBD as low as .05%.
The terpene profile of Mimosa is a grouping of various terpenes that all contribute to a positive result in some way or another. Both Limonene and Linalool are predominantly seen in Mimosa as well as a comparable amount of beta-caryophyllene. The immersive symphony of aromas is due to this emphatic collaboration between the three and when they perform produce a citrus flavoring that consumers seek.
