More About the Mimosa Strain
The Mimosa Cannabis Strain is not the most well-known of strains, but it is one of the up-and-coming superstars from Symbiotic Genetics. The strain has been produced using Clementine and a CBDbible favourite Purple Punch which gives it a unique fruity sour citrus rind aroma that is particularly delicious.
The mimosa strain is fairly new (2018) so it is still making a name for itself, but we forsee Mimosa being a staple in any Sativa fans smell proof box!

What Does Mimosa Weed Look Like?
Mimosa’s smell is the thing that hits you first, the strain itself seems unassuming. It has a dense structure and seems to form in bunches (sometimes a tightly packed nug depending on how it has been cured). They are light olive green with light orange pistils and a very milky layering of trichomes. The THC levels can be extremely high (between 17% and up to a huge 30%) so if your bud is glued together and really sticky, buckle up!
The strain is also has small clusters of orange hairs which cluster together. The colours make perfect sense when you’re holding the Mimosa in your hands, and experiencing the unique aromas.
Sometimes Mimosa is referred to as ‘purple mimosa’ as some phenotypes have a tinge of purple. This has little to do with the strains effects but the purple pigmentation which is caused by cultivation in the cold. If your mimosa is purple, then don’t worry. It will still be a bright and energetic sativa.
Aroma & Flavours
Upon touching and breaking the buds apart users can smell an assortment of tropical citrus and complex herbal funk. Upon smoking you can taste aromas of sweet grapefruit, oranges, pineapple; then lemon and lime mojito on the exhale. It is a fresh and complex flavour which is potentially one of our favourites. The flavours are fresh and bright which reflects how the strain may make you feel. The Mimosa Strains name comes from the cocktail with the same name- with a wonderful blend of sweet and sourness which is a great start to the day.
You can actually get a full spectrum vape which does the Mimosa strain justice.
The Mimosa Marijuana High!
As a dominant sativa, the Mimosa strain is very energizing and is one of the many ‘wake & bake’ varieties which are perfect to start the day. The high is strong and euphoric with a huge amount of energy which keep you focused. Some say that they feel amazingly euphoric and ensures that they start the day in the right side of the bed. It increases their mood and gives them a boost in the morning, much like a cup of coffee. Mimosa weed is the ideal strain to make any day feel like a warm summers day.
As the mimosa strain is a hybrid, many report that the sedative effects will only appear if too much is consumed which may be followed by negative side effects classic with strong Sativa strains. Users may experience high levels of anxiety, paranoia or disorientation. It is suggested to also avoid the Mimosa strain in the evening as it’s energy may be counter productive when trying to get some sleep.
CBD Mimosa Products & Seeds
If you have been to the west coast and enjoyed Mimosa for real, or you just think this strain sounds great, then you will be happy to know that you can get lots of products which have the flavours and effects of the Mimosa strain in the UK. While the Mimosa strain itself is still legal in the UK you can find CBD concentrates (including CBD crumble & vape pen cartridges) which have been infused with Mimosa terpenes.
Otherwise, there are a number of seed banks that sell Mimosa (but they are more often than not, out of stock), Clementine and Purple punch. While it is legal to buy seeds, it is a criminal offence to cultivate and grow the plant. We recommend keeping the seeds as an investment for the future. If you do live in somewhere where the strain is legal then you should expect the yield to be rewarding. The plant is fairly easy to cultivate indoors once you get the hang of the basic trimming and plant maintenance. Tutorials are easy to locate on Leafly.
The strains have high levels of THC (between 18% – 25%) and very low levels of CBD which means that this strain is particularly potent. You should be aware that there are potential negitive side effects which come with high THC strains- the list of noted effects are as below:
- Dry eyes
- Dry mouth
