What is Cinex Strain?
A few cannabis strains are classified as ‘superstars,’ and Cinex certainly falls into that category. Cinex, also known as ‘Cin X’ is a Sativa dominant hybrid marijuana strain. It keeps you clear-headed, boosts creativity, and improve mood. The strain is not all about its feel-good qualities but also widely used for its beneficial medical powers.

Background and Lineage
Cinex is the child of two legendary strains Cinderella 99 and Vortex. They are both hybrids and Sativa dominant strains. When a cannabis strain comes from such famous parents, the expectation is set too high. Luckily, Cinex meets all the expectations and exceeds them.
Cinex is native to the Pacific Northwest, but no one really knows the origins of the original cultivar, as there is not enough information on the internet about this strain. Some believe that Cinex was originally grown by CannaMan Farms from Vancouver, Washington, or Coastal Cannabis, a licensed I-502 producer/processor based out of Seattle, Washington.

Cinex is a perfect daytime strain. It offers intense creative cerebral high and keeps you focused, energetic, and motivated all day long. For that reason, it is an excellent choice for the Wake ‘n’ bake session for some, especially with the artists, musicians, and writers.

The cerebral high is accompanied by a sense of mild body relaxation and calm that will keep you anchored while the mind soars higher and higher without making you feel sedated. That is why Cinex is a favorite strain of many and with good reasons.
