Cinex sativa-dominant strain information

Cinex is a classic example of a dankenstein cross strange. It was originally grown by CannaMan Farms, who hail from Vancouver, Washington. The plants will never be as good as when they’re grown by their original grower, as CannaMan uses his own soil mix of humic acid, feather meal, bat guano, and mycorrhizae. This mix is perfect for growing Cinex but is difficult to come up with on your own.
Cinderella 99 was crossed with Vortex and the result was Cinex. Both of Cinex’s parents are complicated crosses between many other strains. Cinex’s buds are crystal-covered beauties, which any seasoned toker will recognize as the sign of a great strain for edibles. The true smell can only be appreciated after grinding , and the true taste of this strain can only be appreciated through a flower vape .
Another reason this strain is such a classic is that it’s a slightly sativa-dominant hybrid strain. Balanced hybrids are by far the most popular type of cannabis strain these days, and hence this strain is pretty popular. It’s very hard to find this strain outside of North America, so you can expect the price to be pretty high.

Cinex marijuana genetics

  • Cinderella 99
  • Vortex

Cinderella 99 is a potent, dank strain in its own rights. A.K.A. C99, or Cindy, Cinderella is known to pack a sativa-dominant punch. She’s also very high in THC percentages.
Vortex is also a Sativa-dominant strain, which has a lemon taste and an energetic cerebral high. It’s not hard to see why these two strains were mixed together. Once bred, their names were crossed and Cinex was born!

Cinex THC percentage

The average sativa-dominant hybrid has around 13.5% THC. Cinex’s average is a whopping 22%! The highest THC percentage from a Cinex phenotype was tested at 26%.

Cinex price

Cinex is a cheap strain only in the places where it’s widely available. If you’re fortunate enough to be around Portland, Oregon, certain places in Canada, and Seattle, Washington, you’ll find this strain for fairly cheap – probably around $12 a strain.
In Dutch coffee shops it will be much more expensive. That’s because it’s a boutique strain from North America and is not from a Dutch seed bank. The typical price in a coffee shop will be at least $16 a gram.

Cinex taste

  • Earthy
  • Pungent
  • Woody
  • Lemon
  • Citrus

Cinex has a fantastic earthy and citrus taste. This is a highly sought after taste, and will be familiar to lovers of strains such as Death Star . These strains taste best in a flower vape. You will not regret buying one of these vapes, as they have a lot of advantages. The taste isn’t the only thing. You can also reuse your Already Vaped Bud (AVB) to create potent edible highs.

Cinex oil, wax, shatter, edibles, concentrates, etc.

Cinex is popular among concentrate, oil, wax, and shatter creators. That is because it has a high THC percentage, which can be used to make incredibly potent concentrates. If you can get a hold of this strain and make it into a nice concentrate then you’re in for a treat.

Cinex is a sativa-dominant hybrid. This is the preferred combination for those who want to curb depression. Perhaps the best thing about sativa-dominant hybrids is that you get both the cerebral euphoria and the relaxing body high. This can be a perfect combination for anyone who’s got a lot on their mind they need to grapple with calmly or anyone who needs to do a little reflection. Whatever it is, Cinex will help you navigate those thoughts positively and productively.
This strain is also uplifting, which can be great for getting creative or for doing some chores. This strain is a perfect early morning or daytime strain, but shouldn’t be used at night if you’re wanting to sleep. This strain can be very strong for newcomers! Be warned. Only smoke a small amount to start with. If your head is rushing too much, have a cold shower or a coffee. This will help you focus your mind.

Cinex Growing tips

If you want to get bigger buds then you must learn certain techniques. This can really pay off for a strain such as Cinex, as every single big bud is invaluable for the consumer. Learn more about these techniques in the video posted above the effects. Cinex grows are:

  • High yield
  • Short grow times
  • Staple for most growers
  • High THC yield
  • Perfectly balanced between sativa and indica

Cinex seeds

Unfortunately, Cinex seeds are very hard to come by. Of course, you can buy “Cinex” seeds from any seed shop online, but whether they’re actually Cinex or not… your guess is as good as ours. This strain is really only available in North America, and probably in certain Dutch coffee shops, thanks to the relationship some of them have with growers out in NA.

Cinex yield

If you do manage to find Cinex, you can expect incredibly high yields, with high THC and large buds. This makes it an incredibly popular strain for those who can actually get clippings of it.

Xanax and weed

Combining the use of Xanax and weed is used by some people who claim that mixing the two can help you sleep more easily. The problem with this is that it is highly dependent on your tolerance of weed. Not to mention full research on the practice doesn’t exist, so instances of effects are pretty subjective. You should only consider this combination if you’re a seasoned stoner, otherwise the chances that you’ll feel awful afterwards are very real possibilities. We’re certainly not recommending the combination and suggest you do whatever homework you can to decide if it’s something that makes sense for you.

Cinex weed is a cross of Vortex and Cinderella and is a sativa-dominant (60%) hybrid. It hasn’t taken long for this strain to become a firm favorite in the medical marijuana community. Cinex has a taste that appeals to even the most discerning of palates.

There is confusion over the identity of the breeder. Some believe Coastal Cannabis, a Washington breeder, created it. This company has bred several Cannabis Cup winning strains. Another theory suggests that CannaMan Farms, another Washington state breeder, created it.

We are not 100% sure because information on this strain is not easy to come by. Even the Vortex creator, TGA Genetics, does not have any information about Cinex on its website.

Cinex has been heralded as a great ‘wake and bake’ strain. It can boost your focus and provide a burst of energy similar to what a cup of coffee offers. Cinex may even enhance creativity. This is why Cinex is such a favorite of musicians and artists. It is the ideal strain to use during the day because it enables you to operate with a clear mind.

In many ways, Cinex is the ideal sativa because of how it affects users. The high can last for several hours. If you feel tired in the morning or sluggish in the afternoon, take a few tokes of Cinex. Soon enough, you’ll be ready to get back to work.

Cinex Strain Grow Info

Rather than using Cinex seeds, you need to use clones to get the best out of this strain. It is classified as an ‘easy’ strain to grow at home. You get the best results from growing it indoors using a hydroponics setup or a greenhouse if you have enough space. The Sea of Green (SOG) method is one way to create a beautiful canopy. You need to trim Cinex plants regularly, but it is easy to do so.

You get the best results from growing it indoors using a hydroponics setup or a greenhouse.

When you grow it indoors, the flowering time of Cinex is between 7 and 9 weeks. You can expect a yield of approximately 19 ounces per each square meter you plant. Overall, Cinex thrives in daytime temperatures of between 65- and 80-degrees Fahrenheit. However, it can survive in slightly colder temperatures.

It is a fast-growing strain. If you decide to cultivate it outdoors, it is usually ready for harvest by the beginning of October. When grown outside, Cinex’s yield is approximately 16 ounces per plant. In the first few weeks of the vegetative stage, feed with elevated levels of nitrogen. This practice ensures the plants are strong and healthy before you force them into the flowering stage.

THC Content – Highest Test

Cinex is very strong, with some tests recording a THC content of over 25%! Most dispensaries will sell Cinex strains with a THC level of around 22%. Please note that you will begin to feel the strong euphoric high within 3-4 minutes of use.

CBD Content – Highest Test

We have heard of Cinex strains achieving a CBD content of up to 0.4%. In general, however, it has less than 0.1% CBD. If you come across a strain with just 0.05% CBD and a THC content over 22%, the THC to CBD ratio is over 400:1. Consequently, you can expect Cinex to hit you fast – and early!

Medical Benefits of the Cinex Strain

Cinex has a robust terpene profile, which helps explain its potential medical benefits. The main terpenes found in Cinex include limonene, beta-caryophyllene, and alpha-pinene. Here is a little bit of information on what each terpene can do for you:

  • Limonene:Believed to improve mood by reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Beta-Caryophyllene:Could relieve stress, reduce inflammation, and tackle pain.
  • Alpha-Pinene:Possibly helps improve your focus and take the edge off THC’s effects.

Two parts of the cannabis plan…

While each terpene is capable of causing specific effects, it isn’t quite as simple as that. First of all, there is the small matter of the ‘entourage effect.’ This theory suggests that terpenes and cannabinoids work better together. Terpenes and cannabinoids react differently depending on their combinations and the amount of each in any given marijuana strain.

The combination of cannabinoids and terpenes in Cinex means it is used for several mental disorders, including PTSD and ADHD. It is also a favorite of patients with chronic stress, depression, and fatigue.

Possible Side Effects of the Cinex Strain

Cinex is an extremely potent marijuana strain, so be wary when using it for the first time. Uncomfortable side effects include dry eyes and cottonmouth, and it may also lead to mild dehydration. If you are a nervous individual, using too much Cinex may increase anxiety and perhaps cause paranoia. Users have also reported minor headaches, although that could be a symptom of dehydration.
