Oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’, Clementine is a sativa-leaning hybrid with uniquely mellow effects. Clementine stimulates unconventional thinking, tempered out by a subtle body high. It is a potent combination of Tangie and Lemon Skunk that boasts citrus, pine, and diesel scents. A concentrated wax preparation of Clementine won the title of Second Best Sativa concentrate in the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has measured samples of Clementine to have as much as 27% THC.
Clementine is a sativa dominant hybrid strain created through a cross between the insanely delicious Tangie X Lemon Skunk strains. This tasty bud took 2nd Place for Best Sativa Concentrate at the 2015 High Times’ Cannabis Cup in Michigan because of its enticing flavor and even more alluring effects.
Clementine Appearance & Taste
Clementine is distinguished by impressively large flowers that taper down from their bases into pointed, almost conical buds. The elongated flowers have a characteristically sativa bud structure, in which the thin and fluffy leaves cling loosely to their central stems. Leaves themselves are a yellowish-green and are threaded through with brown pistils. Cloudy, translucent trichomes give these buds a slightly white tint and make them very difficult to break up without the use of a grinder. When properly cured, flowers of Clementine have a sweet citrus aroma. Lemon and orange notes blend with the rich scent of pine. Breaking open or grinding the buds yields more of a diesel odor. Clementine burns with a smooth, lung-expanding smoke. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind the faintly chemical taste of lemon-scented cleaning products. Although it doesn’t have much of a hashy, skunky smell, Clementine stills emits a certain pungency when burnt; as such, smokers trying to remain discreet should take the necessary precautions.
Like its name suggests, Clementine has an insanely delicious flavor of sweet citrusy orange with an earthy aftertaste. The aroma has been said to being like walking through an orange grove just after the rain, with a rich earthiness that’s accented by a sweetly sharp citrus. This bud has super dense tight spade-shaped bright yellow green nugs with sparse bright orange hairs and a frosty thick coating of tiny crystal trichomes.
Clementine’s high takes hold quickly, although it doesn’t have the cerebral intensity that comes with some other sativas. Rather, smokers may feel more perceptive and attuned to their surroundings. As they taper down from the peak of the high, smokers may also find themselves attaching their attention to abstract concepts and engaging in creative thinking and problem solving. Clementine also works with more mundane activities like running errands or cleaning the house. A slight sense of physical relaxation and decreased tension can pull users down to earth in the event that they’re overpowered by recursive, cerebral thinking. A classic wake-and-bake strain, Clementine may not be the best flower to smoke just before bedtime, as it can leave users alert or overstimulated.
Clementine can also offer some psychological benefits for medical cannabis patients. Its powerful mood enhancement may ease the symptoms of stress and depression, helping smokers to exercise their energy more mindfully and deliberately. Its clearheaded capacity for focus can also be helpful for those with attention deficit disorders. Because initial cerebral effects come about quickly, Clementine may not be a great choice for patients who are prone to panic or who have lower than average THC tolerance.
The Clementine high is both uplifting and relaxing in nature, pulling both indica and sativa effects, although it tends to lean heavily to the sativa side. It starts with a euphoric uplifting effect that launches your mood into the clouds and leaves you feeling insanely happy with a sense of focus and motivation. This is accompanied by a mellow relaxing feeling that permeates throughout your entire body, leaving you calmed and completely at ease. These effects in combination with its powerful 17-19% average THC level make Clementine ideal for treating conditions such as mild to moderate cases of depression, chronic fatigue, migraine or tension headaches, chronic stress, and nausea.
Final Thoughts on Clementine
With bold flavors and an enduring, thoughtful high, Clementine proves that that taste doesn’t have to come at the expense of psychoactivity. Enjoyable in both solo or social settings, Clementine is a great option for sativa fans who may be looking for something a little more mild than usual.
