Are you considering using marijuana as a form of medication and unsure of what you should use ? If this is the case, it can be hard to choose the correct strain that will fit your needs the best. You’re probably asking yourself that question ‘which strain of marijuana will best serve my needs ?’ There are two main parts to the marijuana plant. These are what are known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Each of these have different effects on the individual. From what you hear in the media, it is said that the high CBD marijuana strains assist better with medical conditions than THC. This is not always the case since there have been reports of many positive effects of the THC. There are also some strains high in CBD meant specifically for medical use. One of these strains which is good for recreational but some medical purpose’s as well is called Mimosa. Here we will go over where it comes from, how it’s used, the effects, and what it can be used for. Ready to learn more ? Let’s get started.
Indica: 30 %
Sativa 70 %
THC: 20-27 %
CBD: Less than 1%
This strain has a higher level of THC (20%) when compared to the level of CBD (less than 1%) making it a strain that is good for recreational purpose’s. Even though the CBD levels in this strain are lower when compared to the THC, the CBD still has some effects as well. This strain is a hybrid between the strains of Clementine and Purple punch. Putting these two strains together, helps bring out the best in each concerning the effects that this strain has. The strain is grown and put out by a company called Symbiotic Genetics. Different strains of marijuana can be used for different purpose’s whether it is medical or recreational. So what are some good uses for this strain ?
Since this strain is higher in THC as opposed to CBD, it is probably used for more recreational purpose’s, but the CBD effects that are seen when this strain is used can have their place in medical use for some conditions as well. The Mimosa strain is effective in helping conditions such as: depression, chronic stress, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, as well as appetite loss. This strain may also help with epilepsy or seizures as well, but this would probably depend on the individuals’ response to the strain. Since stress is a trigger for many individuals’ with some conditions mentioned such as anxiety, depression, and many time seizures, the level of relaxation and uplift that this strain brings could explain why it is of such assistance. For the individual with seizures, whether it is actually epileptic and of a chemical imbalance, or what is known as a non epileptic event, the relaxation felt and stress relief could be of assistance for either condition. More research should be done to scientifically show how this exactly works, since these effects are based only on testimony of individuals’ which have experience in using the strain. The levels of THC and CBD in different strains will determine the level of effects that are seen, with the specific strains. So what are some effects that this strain has ?
What effects does it have ?
When using this strain, it is good for its effects that come from the levels of THC that it has. This strain is known by many users to bring an immediate sense of joy and energy, along with an increase in focus and relaxation. One user stated that it was “one of the best strains yet. It helped me stay focused and creative and was lots of fun.” When you first begin to use the strain, you will probably experience a tingling feeling throughout the body, followed by an increase in focus and mood. The focus means a sense of clear-headedness, along with a sense of euphoria. A good thing about this strain is that it is not strong enough to bring a couch lock effect, allowing you to do any daily tasks needed. Although the level of relaxation is lower and will not cause this, too much consumed at once may cause you to be lethargic, so you should be aware of how much you can handle at once. Since the strain has a more equal amount of physical and mental effects, it is good for multiple uses, and can be of benefit to almost anyone, but who would benefit the most from using this strain ?

If one is a beginner and wants to try the strain, it is advised to start out with a very small amount and allowing your body to gradually adjust to the effects of the strain. Also, anyone that thinks they may benefit in treating any of the previous conditions mentioned such as ADHD, ADD, anxiety, stress, appetite loss could try this strain as well.
When should it be used ?
Since this strain brings with it an increase in your level of focus, it is best to use this strain any time during the day or early evening.

It is only advised that this strain not be taken at night since it’s effects can last up to a few hours and may keep you awake when trying to go to sleep.

How to use it
There are many forms of CBD and THC which come from the marijuana plant. This includes: smoking, vaping, capsules, and oils. The best way to get the total effect of either the CBD or THC of the plant is to use it in its original form through smoking or vaping. Although the capsules as oils may be effective, this is not the same as when smoking or vaping. When using this strain, you should expect to experience a woody, earthy, and floral type taste, followed by a cerebral high. A sweet and citrus smell and flavor have also been reported by users. This is probably where it gets its name from the drink. Most of the time, you’ll probably purchase the product from a grower, but if you choose to use marijuana in the form of buds for smoking and you know you’ll be using it for a while, you may want to consider growing it yourself since it may be less expensive in the long run.
Raising the strain
For anyone just beginning to grow their own strains of marijuana, this strain is not too hard to grow. The only challenge you may come across when trying to grow this strain is the number of selections you have in purchasing the seeds. As mentioned it is put out by a company called Symbolic Genetics, so your best chance of obtaining the seeds is to look there, or there may still be a chance to find them at a grower/distribution center. If you are able to find the seeds to grow the strain, the best way to grow it is probably indoors since it can be done at any time. In order to do this, you’ll need some equipment in order to get the most out of the plants. One growing technique that is used and has been shown to be effective with any strain is known as scrogging which stands for screen of green. This is where a screen canopy is used above the strain being grown in order to train the plant. It helps increase the stability of the strain and allows the lighting to be more effective, giving you the best results for the fewest plants. There are also many other techniques that can be used in order to get the greatest amount of harvest for the seeds that you plant. Here are some of these techniques that can be used if you’d like to try them.
The ratios of THC to CBD for the Mimosa strain of marijuana is higher in THC (20-30%) than it is in CBD (Less than 1%) but it can be used for both medical and recreational purpose’s.
