Clementine: Clear-Headed Effects and Tangy Flavours


Wake-and-bakers listen up; Clementine is here to quench your morning desire for a boost in energy and motivation. Not only catering to cannabis users, growers will also enjoy this hybrid. Despite its sativa-dominant nature, Clementine can be grown successfully at home, with just a bit of maintenance needed.

Genetic Background of Clementine: Citrusy Origins

As the result of crossing two classic cannabis strains—Tangie and Lemon Skunk—Clementine demonstrates the full potential of her storied genetics. The strain first emerged through the efforts of Crockett Family Farms in California, and has since gained widespread popularity and acclaim. What makes Clementine such a unique strain is its blend of the classic and the modern—it combines iconic genetics with cutting-edge breeding techniques to bring the flavour, yields, and THC levels to new heights.

Despite its relatively recent emergence, Clementine has scooped up its share of industry accolades, including an award for “Best Sativa Concentrate” at the High Times Cup in 2015, solidifying its status as a serious sativa standout.


A beloved sativa-dominant hybrid with a delectably sweet, citrusy flavour, Tangie delivers an energetic high, which it passes down to its Clementine progeny. Tangie plants typically have a medium-long flowering time but consistently produce high-quality harvests.

Lemon Skunk

Lemon Skunk is known for its citrus skunk aroma and uplifting yet relaxing effects. Thanks to its robust Skunk genetics, Lemon Skunk is easy to grow and productive to boot.

Aroma and Flavour of Clementine: You Get What You Pay For


Clementine has a sweet and citrusy aroma primarily reminiscent of its parent strain, Tangie. Its flavour profile builds upon this foundation, with sweet and tangy notes balanced by a hint of skunk.

Clementine’s terpene profile is believed to be dominated by terpinolene and limonene, with myrcene and caryophyllene in tow.

Potency and Effects of Clementine: Energising and Inspiring

Though it’s not among the heaviest hitters on the cannabis market, Clementine still exhibits considerable potency. With THC levels averaging around 19%, but capable of reaching up to 27%, users can definitely expect a proper high when used in larger amounts. Despite this, Clementine’s effect is predominantly energising as opposed to stoning, and is less heady than its Tangie parent. This makes Clementine a viable candidate for daytime smoking or wake-and-baking.

As alluded to above, Clementine is highly regarded as an extract. Given its explosive citrus flavour, in particular, Clementine extracts offer an invigorating and euphoric experience.

Recreational Uses

Clementine is most obviously suited for creative, active cannabis users looking to boost motivation, inspiration, energy, or the desire to socialise. In smaller doses, Clementine is also well-suited to certain types of work.

Side Effects

Like most cannabis strains, the main side effects of Clementine are dry mouth and dry eyes. Some users may also experience mild paranoia or anxiety at higher doses.

Growing Clementine: A Short Flowering Stage and Large Yields


Clementine is somewhat unique from many other sativas in that it doesn’t take exceptionally long to flower. That said, it can reach upwards of 2m if given the space and light. Thankfully, it responds well to training and pruning should you need to limit its height. The plant itself is long and slender, with thin leaves. While it flourishes in warm, sunny climates outdoors, it can be grown successfully indoors too. Not only easy to grow, Clementine also provides very respectable harvests.

Indoor Growing Tips

Clementine doesn’t have any uncommon requirements in the grow room, and it isn’t high-maintenance—though it tends to thrive at a temperature of around 25°C. As mentioned, Clementine has a relatively short flowering period; indoors, plants take just 8–10 weeks to reach maturity. During this time, Clementine can produce yields of up to 500g/m².

Outdoor Growing Tips

Clementine is generally ready for harvest in early October when grown outdoors. In this setting, it can produce heavy hauls of up to 600g/plant. Though growers in cooler climates can cultivate Clementine outside if the timing is right and sun exposure is ample, it prefers a slightly warmer and more humid environment. If you live in a northerly region and want to grow Clementine, perhaps opt for an indoor grow, if possible.

Should You Try Clementine?

Clementine is geared to cannabis users who prioritise an energising and uplifting experience above all else. For cultivators, Clementine is a delightfully easy plant partner that yields impressive results after a short flowering phase.

For Growers

If you are interested in achieving high yields of pungent sativa bud, Clementine is just the thing. Though her height can be imposing in some grows, she also makes for a majestic sight once mature. Outdoor growers in cooler climates should ensure that their plants have everything they need in order to reach harvest before the inclement weather starts in autumn.

For Recreational Users

For those who want to feel stimulated and focused while still being able to relax and unwind, Clementine strikes the perfect balance between energy and serenity. Whether you’re engaging in physical activity, creative pursuits, or socialising, she is sure to please.

For Medical Users

Clementine is likely best suited for medical users looking to address issues related to mood or mental health. While everyone’s experience with cannabis is unique, Clementine could be used to inspire a greater lust for life.

Clementine: Tangy and Unique


Clementine is praised for its unique flavour profile, potent effects, and ease of cultivation. If you’re looking to crop citrusy sativa buds at home without waiting forever for plants to flower, consider this cultivar.
