Mimosa – Kootenay Labs Shatter – SATIVA 1g
Mimosa is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain (70% sativa/30% indica) created through crossing the classic Purple Punch X Clementine strains. If you’re looking for an early morning pick-me-up (minus the alcohol), this bud is totally for you. Mimosa packs bright and happy daytime effects that are perfect for chasing sleep away and giving you a positive mood as you take on your day. You’ll feel an energetic, clear-headed lift at the onset of the high, which fills your brain with euphoric motivation and laser-sharp focus. A light tingle accompanies these effects, resting mainly in the body rather than your head. With these effects and its high 19-27% average THC level, Mimosa is said to be the perfect choice for treating those suffering from conditions such as depression, chronic stress or anxiety, ADD or ADHD, migraines, and nausea or appetite loss. This bud has a sweet and sour tropical citrus flavour with a light berry exhale, almost like a fresh mimosa! The aroma follows the same profile, although with an influx of woody florals and fresh earthy herbs. Mimosa buds have rounded dense small olive green nugs with lots of dark orange hairs and a coating of bright white crystal trichomes.
Shatter, with its flawless amber glass transparency, has a reputation for being the purest and cleanest type of extract. But translucence isn’t necessarily the tell-tale sign of quality. The consistency and texture of oil come down to different factors entirely.
The reason shatter comes out perfectly clear has to do with the molecules. Which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance. Heat, moisture, and high terpene contents can also affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap”). Cannabis Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap.”
