Clementine is a visual delight to look at, with its dense buds of olive and forest greens dancing beautifully with the purple tones throughout.
The orange pistils seem subtle but shine brightly when put under light. The leaves and buds are true ‘sugar leaves’, as the coating of milky white trichomes makes them look almost completely white.
Packed with a strong orange citrus flavor, this bud is incredible to smoke. The punchy sweetness of the citrus, with hints of lemon, is complemented by a cheeky diesel undertone and refreshing pine notes.
Smoking Clementine is truly a sensory delight, light enough to keep active but powerful enough to draw in the senses and keep you wanting more.
The powerful and consuming citruses of the flavor are also dominant with the aromatics of this train. The combination of sweet citrus, sharp lemon, earthy pine and sour diesel creates a dense but highly aromatic smoke.
The THC content of Clementine typically ranges between 17-19%, making it not too overwhelming but still packing some power. The strain also contains small amounts of CBG at around 1%.
