Mimosa, a.k.a. Purple Mimosa, is a sativa-dominant hybrid created by Symbiotic Genetics. It was bred by crossing parents Clementine and Purple Punch. Mimosa hit the scene in 2017 and quickly placed second in the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2018. It is a potent 70% sativa and 30% indica hybrid with an average THC range of 20%-25%.Mimosa is a typical “wake and bake” strain (cultivar) ideal for morning use. It has strong cerebral effects, giving users a happy and energetic high, perfect for social situations. Mimosa may help alleviate stress and anxiety, boost energy, and improve focus. This could also make Mimosa useful for managing chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) symptoms or ADHD.As the name suggests, Mimosa has a fruity flavor profile with sweet and sour tastes. It has a strong citrus scent with a combination of lemon and sweet orange mellowed by an undertone of earthy pine.


Terpenes provide the unique aromas and flavors of each strain while having various therapeutic impacts. Mimosa’s dominant terpenes include myrcene, beta-caryophyllene, and limonene.
  • Beta-Caryophyllene

  • Limonene

  • Linalool

  • Myrcene

  • Pinene

  • Sabinene

  • Valencene



Mimosas has been reported to have the following effects:

  • Energizing
  • Focused
  • Friendliness
  • Happiness
  • Talkative

The following adverse effects have also been reported:

  • Cottonmouth
  • Dizziness
  • Dry Eyes
  • Dry Mouth
  • Insomnia
  • Rapid Heartbeat
  • Thirst
Mimosa is best taken during the daytime to boost energy and help you focus and socialize. Therefore, taking it at night or too close to bedtime is not recommended as it could cause insomnia.

Medical Applications

Mimosa is reported to provide several therapeutic effects for physical and mental health conditions.
Anxiety, Panic Disorders.
Cannabis contains many anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) compounds that can beat stress and reduce the production of the stress hormone cortisol.

Organ Systems

  • Brain & Nervous System
Cannabinoids like CBD can help modulate serotonin transmission, giving it anti-depressant and anxiolytic effects.

Organ Systems

  • Brain & Nervous System
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
THC and CBD interact with the endocannabinoid system to relieve some pain and other symptoms associated with chronic fatigue syndrome.

Organ Systems

  • Muscular
  • Other


              Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD/ADD)
CBD and other phyto-cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis may help replace the lost endocannabinoids, helping treat pain and mood disorders associated with NF1 gene mutations. Using THC may help boost dopamine levels in the brain.Medical cannabis may also help reduce the intake of stimulant medications. Terpenes like beta-caryophyllene and limonene may be beneficial for reducing the intake of stimulants and addiction in general.

Organ Systems

  • Mental / Emotional



Mimosa produces beautiful cone-shaped green buds with bright orange pistils. The flowers are heavily coated with bright white trichomes that look like a delicate layer of fresh frost. Mimosa buds are small but densely packed.Mimosa is a favorite of experienced growers but may be more difficult to grow for beginners. Mimosa is a heavy feeder, and to bring out the best of its cannabinoid and terpene profile, it is recommended to grow this cultivar in a nutrient-rich medium.If growing in soil, a super soil mix is recommended but be careful not to over-feed these plants as they could still get nutrient burn. If you are growing in a soilless medium with liquid nutrients, it would be beneficial to boost the nitrogen content in the vegetative stage and then boost the phosphorus and potassium levels in the flowering period to promote the growth of the bud sites.

Mimosa is a large plant that does well both indoors and outdoors. It is known to be resistant to pests and diseases common to cannabis. Mimosa is a relatively consistent strain with little mention of various phenotypes. It responds well to “screen of green” (SCROG) training.

The SCROG method involves topping the plants in the early vegetative stage (removing the apical or center stem). This encourages the plant to produce more side shoots, eventually becoming colas (flowers). Once topped, the branches of the plants are gently weaved through support (usually a horizontal trellis) to maximize the amount of light reaching each potential bud site.

It will be important to top this plant if growing indoors as it can reach heights above 80 inches indoors. With good training, Mimosa will produce numerous well-developed colas and yield approximately 400 grams per square meter indoors and 500 grams outdoors.


Mimosa can reach up to 90 inches outdoors and between 60-80 inches indoors.

Humidity and Temperature

Mimosa can tolerate cooler temperatures than some cannabis plants but protects it from frost if growing outdoors. When growing Mimosa, keep the relative humidity between 40% to 60% in the vegetative phase, and drop it to 30% to 40% during flowering to prevent molds such as bud rot from taking hold. Temperatures should stay at 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 26 degrees Celsius).


Mimosa takes anywhere from 68 to 78 days to flower, approximately nine weeks.
