Created by Crockett Family Farms, this potent sativa strain was created by crossing Tangie with Lemon Skunk. Clementine won second place in the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup for best sativa concentrates.
Users love this strain for its sweet citrus flavor and high THC content, which can reach up to 27 percent. There’s no questioning this strain’s award-winning status! You’ll love spending time with Clementine because of its calming and uplifting effects profile.
Although this strain is sativa dominant, the effects are not what you would expect! As the high settles in, you’ll begin to feel more in tune with your surroundings. Clementine does have some cerebral effects, but less so compared to its other sativa relatives.
It makes the user more alert, more creative, and more likely to think in general terms. This is the perfect wake-and-bake strain, given its ability to energize and uplift. Whether you’re just doing chores around the house or drifting off in thought, Clementine can make the most monotonous tasks interesting.
As the high begins to wind down, you’re going to experience its more relaxing effects. Its calming body high is able to release tension within the user and pull them back down to earth, gently grounding them to their body after hours of introspection.
Flavor and Appearance
The Clementine strain has distinctively large flowers, which narrow from their base down into cone-shaped buds. Each of its buds is densely packed, light green in color, and visibly rich in THC. With how rich they are in resin, you’re going to want to use a grinder to break up this strain.
Clementine buds give off a sweet and fruity scent, reminiscent of fresh pine, orange, and lemon. When inhaled, the smoke of clementines has a creamy, lemony flavor. As you let the smoke out of your lungs, you’ll notice its strong citrus taste and a bit of herb and earthiness. When this strain is burned, especially in a small space, the smell is strong and noticeable. You can expect Clementine to fill up a room!
Although many recreational users love this strain, it also has a host of benefits for medical patients! For those dealing with depression, Clementine can produce mood-boosting and energizing effects within the user.
It tends to lighten up one’s mood as well as provide a spark of motivation so that you can easily and enjoyably complete necessary tasks. For this reason, this strain is also effective in combating fatigue. For those with ADHD, this strain is helpful in its ability to clear one’s head and allow for a sharper focus.
Because it can make you feel better and clear your mind, clementine can also help with long-term stress. From a physical point of view, this strain can help relieve pain, but it might not be the best for very severe pain. Its relaxing body high can help treat minor to moderate aches and pains, but if your pain requires something stronger, try an indica heavy strain.
Lastly, clementine is oftentimes used to stimulate appetite and decrease nausea. This strain can make eating easy and painless for people who are getting over an eating disorder or going through a treatment like chemotherapy.
This strain is relatively easy to grow due to its natural resistance to mold and disease, though its yields are low to average. Clementine can be grown indoors or outdoors, but it needs a semi-humid climate and a daytime temperature range of 72 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Each plant can grow quite tall, like most sativas, and requires regular pruning and trimming to keep it healthy. Its flowering period is around 8 to 9 weeks, and when grown indoors, it can produce yields of about 11 ounces per square meter. When grown outdoors, this strain is generally ready to harvest in mid-October and produces slightly higher yields of 14 ounces per square meter.
