Cinex Strain Review
Cinex is a hybrid that is notable for its wide range of flavors from citrus to earthy skunk. It has proven to be quite a superstar with its excellent qualities and potent medicinal properties.
The original Cinex clone-only and has an unknown origin. Although many sources cite its lineage as coming from Cinderella 99 (C99) and Vortex, the strain available on the market is not exactly the same as the original.
First, the breeder Elev8 Seeds crossed C99 and Vortex to produce seeds. Then, using these seeds, they then backcrossed it with the original clone-only version of Cinex. As a result, the new offspring they bred is the strain that is made available in the market either as flowers or in seed form.
The influence of the parent strains is evident. From C99, Cinex inherited the dreamy buzz and growth traits. Vortex, on the other hand, is a multi-awarded Sativa-dominant strain that passes on its mind-bending cerebral euphoric effects.
In essence, users can expect Cinex to induce the most notable effects of its parent strains with one fundamental difference. It does not seem to cause users to experience psychedelic effects or mental confusion.

Odor and Flavors
The genetic lineage of Cinex is evident in fresh earthy odor it emits with a citrusy note. Not surprisingly, it also has a skunky scent that is reminiscent of its Skunk lineage.
The strain has a pungent aroma, but it is less pronounced in its flavors. A sour note accompanies its mild skunky taste. Upon exhalation, the lingering citrusy aftertaste makes it refreshing to use.
Cinex comes with a high THC level that can induce not only an incredible cerebral experience. It can also leave users active during much of the day.
At its onset, the strain delivers an intense, energetic buzz which then floods the mind and body with an uplifting sensation. This upper makes people feel good not only physically, but also mentally. As happiness sweeps in, the mind becomes clear and more focused. In fact, it can even boost the creative side of users. Energized, most people also tend to feel motivated and inspired to complete one task after another.
Cinex is among the strains that not only took the best traits of its parents. At the same time, it also delivered the same experience better. As users basked in the incredible cerebral effects, the physical body high creeps in.
Where C99 can potentially cause a foggy mind, and Vortex can lead to a psychedelic high, the soothing Indica traits of Cinex blends with the cerebral high and stabilizes its intensity. As such, people who use it in moderation should not be overwhelmed. Furthermore, the same body high also calms the muscles and induce relaxation.
Like any cannabis, people overusing it may experience some adverse effects. Besides having dry mouth and eyes, there are other side effects that one should be aware of before using. As it turns out, Cinex may deliver a refreshing cerebral and mental high, but it can also be difficult to handle.
Some people are more susceptible to paranoia and anxiety. In this case, even when used within limits, there is a chance that they feel more paranoid or anxious when using Cinex. To avoid, it is best to start off with half of usual amount to test this strain first. Also, during the height of its effects, the hybrid can also cause some people to have a mild headache.
In general, the more people use, the more pronounced these side effects are.
Medical Use and Benefits
People use cannabis for different reasons, and one of them is for medical reasons. Such is also the battle cry of activists who are pushing for its legalization. In recent years, it appears that medical marijuana use is gaining a momentum as more areas are now legalizing its use.
At only 0.15% CBD, Cinex cannot be used in treating epilepsy and seizures. However, the combined mental and physical effects it induces introduces benefits to medical users.
First, the euphoric cerebral high combined with uplifted spirit helps in reducing or eliminating stress. This, in turn, benefits people with mental disorders by letting them better able to manage their emotions.
Because the users’ mind is taken away from mental and physical discomforts, the strain can be used for pain relief. Of course, this is also mainly due to the calming effects of the Indica side. At the same time, the energizing buzz helps in combating fatigue.
Cinex is a rejuvenating strain in that it is not only used for better productivity. It is also for reinvigorating users after a long and tiring day.
One of the traits Cinex inherited from C99 is its resilience. As such, it is easier to grow than the original clone-only version. Even better, it is also resistant to most diseases and molds. It means that even beginners should be able to cultivate it successfully. Ideally, the plant should be grown in an environment where the temperature ranges from 18 to 28 degrees Celsius.
Grown indoor, growers can trigger the flowering stage starting the seventh week. As an option, they may consider waiting for another week or two to allow it to grow sturdier. It is highly adaptable to the Sea of Green training method, and topping early is recommended, as well as constant trimming and pruning. Once it is ready for harvesting, it can produce around 500 grams of buds per square meter.
In the outdoors, the plant transitions to the flowering stage during the first few days of October. Each plant can produce around 450 grams of buds.
