Coming in cone-shaped buds, the mimosa strain is a colorful plant that has a dark yet frosty appearance which is largely covered by trichomes.

Also, curing the buds of your plant by drying it completely on either a line or on a drying rack helps enhance their flavor better.

This is why making use of high-quality extracts such as waxes, budders, and shatter either homemade or store-bought will help you get the same experience if you infuse it into your cooking. You could also decide to use the buds as a garnish for your dishes which can then be smoked at the end of your meal to give it a satisfying end. You can get creative with your mimosa strain and make use of it in any form you wish, we promise not to judge and might even try some of them out if it turns outright.
