Mimosa by Symbiotic Genetics is a rising star in the cannabis community. A cross of Clementine and Purple Punch, this strain has garnered praise for its outstanding fruit punch, citrus rind aroma and pleasurable mid-level buzz. Like the beverage, there is no bad time to enjoy Mimosa, but if you enjoy too much, the trajectory of your day will need adjusting.
Created by Northern California-based breeder Symbiotic Genetics, Mimosa is a sativa-dominant strain crossed between Purple Punch and Clementine. Awarded second place in the sativa category at the 2018 High Times Cannabis Cup in Santa Rosa, California, Mimosa has become a popular daytime-use strain, said to produce an energetic and uplifting high. As a relatively new strain that emerged in 2018, the seeds are reportedly difficult to source.
With citrus notes and earthy undertones, this strain smells as sweet as the fashionable and fruity brunch drink it’s named after. A medium-sized plant that is well-suited for either indoor or outdoor grows, the flowering period can take around nine weeks. Cultivators should expect spade-shaped, light-green colas that are coated with sugary resin and spotted with orange stigmas.
