Clementine strain will make you feel sharp, energetic, and mentally alert for your daily routine. That is why it is ideal for mornings. This strain is an energy-enhancer and mood-lifting strain, perfect for recreational activities and medical use. Due to its stimulating effect on the cerebrum and energizing effect on the body, Clementine is not such a good idea at night.

In 2015, it got the recognition of the first runner-up amongst the best Sativa strains during the High Times Cannabis Cup. This article covers the experience it produces, its flavor and aroma, the appearance, its medical benefits, and the growing process. Before these, it’s important to know its origin.

The Origin of Clementine

Clementine is a Sativa hybrid created by Crockett Family Farms, derived from crossing Tangie together with a lemon skunk. It is a balanced hybrid of Indica genetics and Sativa descent.

Experience Clementine Produces

The experience Clementine gives you is really light and creative, making you feel charged and excited from your head to your toes. It relaxes the body due to its Indica genetics and energizes the mind due to its Sativa descent. Clementine can make you feel optimistic and inspired all day – even folks around you can be affected by your optimism.

Clementine produces a sharp flow of enthusiasm and is awesome for creatives – as it enhances their creative ability, leading to an unconventional mode of thinking. It will also enhance your problem-solving skills, making you think completely outside of the box in challenging projects or situations.

Flavor + Aroma

An ideal Clementine bud smells pleasantly like fresh pines, oranges, and lemons. If the buds of Clementine are opened or ground up, the aroma will be similar to that of Sour Diesel. Clementine produces a sour and sweet citrus flavor while smoking, accented with earthy undertones.

When inhaling, the smoke of Clementine has a creamy, lemony taste. While exhaling, the smoke tastes like a concentrated, sweet orange. The after taste is the same as when you exhale it – concentrated, sweet orange flavor, and you continue to have the taste even long after you have taken the strain.

The aroma of Clementine while burning, especially in an enclosed area, is noticeable and stings the nose. Therefore, if you would not like to draw attention to cannabis smoking, this may not be the best strain.


Clementine is identified by its distinctively large flowers which narrow from its base down into cone-like buds. The soft and narrow leaves are loosely attached to their central stems, making them similar in characteristics to the bud structure of Sativa. The leaves have a yellowish-green color, with brown pistils threading through them.

The buds have a faintly white tint produced by cloudy trichomes. This is why it’s impossible to break them open without using a grinder.

Medical Benefits

Clementine has yielded results in taking care of some medical conditions. The use of Clementine for these conditions may be based on medical prescription or personal choice- however, it has been effective in treating the medical conditions. Here’s a list of medical conditions people have taken care of with Clementine and how effective they are:

  1. Lack of appetite

Many people have used Clementine to treat the lack of appetite, particularly one that is due to nausea. It is effective for this condition. For many people, it may not bring about a rapid restoration of their appetite, but it can be a succor for many people who suffer from diverse cases of nausea.

  1. Fatigue

The stimulating and energizing ability of Clementine makes it possible for it to be an effective treatment for fatigue. It helps users who are unable to concentrate because of fatigue to become more focused. Because of how it brings about a stimulating and energizing effect on both the physical and the physiological aspects of users, it can be really helpful for many individuals.

  1. Depression

Clementine is known to produce a sharp flow of enthusiasm and excitement in users, thereby, making it a fitting natural treatment for depression. It lightens up the mood of users. If you have a low feeling, lack the drive and passion to complete daily tasks, or  find concentrating a difficult thing to do, maybe this strain could help alleviate your issues!

  1. Pains

Clementine has been a great way to manage and relieve pain for many users who have acute pains from sprain, broken bones, etc. Using Clementine for pain is effective, however, how much its effectiveness depends on the user’s mindset and the cause and gravity of the pain.

  1. ADHD

People who suffer from ADHD have difficulty concentrating. Based on testimonials, many users who suffer from ADHD found Clementine effective, in that, it cleared their minds and revived their ability to focus. The effectiveness of Clementine on users suffering from ADHD will differ based on the gravity of the ADHD condition and the user as an individual.

  1. Stress

The effect of Clementine on users who are stressed physically and undergo tension is also relative. If it’s mental stress due to worrying about things like money, family, etc, then Clementine may not effectively remove the stress, just take the edges off. However, this strain is fairly effective for relieving physical stress.

The Growing Process

Clementine can be grown either indoor or outdoor. It’s pertinent to engage in regular trimming and pruning. A Clementine plant grows very tall and needs to be well nurtured and managed to be able to produce maximum yields.

An ideal favorable growth condition for the plant is where it is largely exposed to sunlight, temperatures ranging between 72 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and a semi-humid climatic condition.

The challenge of growing the plant indoors is its pungent smell. When grown outdoors, the odor mixes with the wind and is blown away. But when grown indoors, the odor can be overwhelmingly strong because there’s little air to blow it away. So, it’s necessary to have an odor control measure to take out old air, while bringing in new, fresh air.
