Although Cinex may sound like it’s something to do with the film industry, like many great marijuana strains, its name comes from its parent strains, Cinderella99 and Vortex. This modern Sativa dominant impresses with its flavour and effects and is fairly straightforward to grow.
In spite of the fact that Cinex is only just Sativa dominant (60%), it packs a THC level of 22% to 25%, which is pretty potent even by modern standards. This figure does, however, have to be set in the context of 40% Indica genetics, which act as a gentle damper on the euphoric, cognitive high and makes it more relaxed and calm. The pain relief, however, is exactly what you’d expect. Cinex offers 0.4% CBD, which would be fairly heavy if this strain were Indica dominant, but it’s not and the Sativa genetics help to lighten it up, which means that what you experience is a feeling of deep contentment and tranquillity but not the sort of knock-out stone which will keep you from doing anything for hours. All in all, therefore, this is one flexible strain, which can be used day or night, as long as you remember to allow sufficient recovery time in the former case.
Indoors, Cinex will be ready in about 8 to 9 weeks, will tend to grow to slightly over a metre in height and will yield about 550g/m2. Outdoors it will be ready in early October, can grow up to 2 metres tall and will yield about 500g per plant. As is generally the case with marijuana strains, Cinex definitely prefers life in a warm, dry climate but it can put up with a cooler climate as long as it is kept sheltered from wind and rain. We’ve classed this strain as moderately difficult to grow, partly because it’s photoperiod, but mostly because it’s on the taller side for a modern strain and as such will need a bit more TLC than its more compact Indica (dominant) counterparts, basically think more food, more water and a bit more time. Other than that, Cinex is a nicely robust and undemanding strain and if you’re confident with plant training, you can definitely keep its height down quite a bit.
In terms of taste, Cinex is a balance of citrus sweetness, earthiness and skunk and this is all reflected in the aroma, although this is a bit less pungent than you might expect. You’ll still want to be considerate when you smoke it though.
Cinex is a sativa dominant cross between Cinderella 99 x Vortex. With up to 25% THC and a sweet fruity taste, cinex also has strong medicinal qualities.

Cinex sativa-dominant strain information
Cinex is a classic example of a dankenstein cross strange. It was originally grown by CannaMan Farms, who hail from Vancouver, Washington. The plants will never be as good as when they’re grown by their original grower, as CannaMan uses his own soil mix of humic acid, feather meal, bat guano, and mycorrhizae. This mix is perfect for growing Cinex but is difficult to come up with on your own.
Cinderella 99 was crossed with Vortex and the result was Cinex. Both of Cinex’s parents are complicated crosses between many other strains. Cinex’s buds are crystal-covered beauties, which any seasoned toker will recognize as the sign of a great strain for edibles. The true smell can only be appreciated after grinding , and the true taste of this strain can only be appreciated through a flower vape .
Another reason this strain is such a classic is that it’s a slightly sativa-dominant hybrid strain. Balanced hybrids are by far the most popular type of cannabis strain these days, and hence this strain is pretty popular. It’s very hard to find this strain outside of North America, so you can expect the price to be pretty high.

- Cinderella 99
Cinderella 99 is a potent, dank strain in its own rights. A.K.A. C99, or Cindy, Cinderella is known to pack a sativa-dominant punch. She’s also very high in THC percentages.
Vortex is also a Sativa-dominant strain, which has a lemon taste and an energetic cerebral high. It’s not hard to see why these two strains were mixed together. Once bred, their names were crossed and Cinex was born!
Cinex THC percentage
The average sativa-dominant hybrid has around 13.5% THC. Cinex’s average is a whopping 22%! The highest THC percentage from a Cinex phenotype was tested at 26%.
Cinex is a cheap strain only in the places where it’s widely available. If you’re fortunate enough to be around Portland, Oregon, certain places in Canada, and Seattle, Washington, you’ll find this strain for fairly cheap – probably around $12 a strain.
In Dutch coffee shops it will be much more expensive. That’s because it’s a boutique strain from North America and is not from a Dutch seed bank. The typical price in a coffee shop will be at least $16 a gram.
Cinex has a fantastic earthy and citrus taste. This is a highly sought after taste, and will be familiar to lovers of strains such as Death Star . These strains taste best in a flower vape. You will not regret buying one of these vapes, as they have a lot of advantages. The taste isn’t the only thing. You can also reuse your Already Vaped Bud (AVB) to create potent edible highs.
Cinex oil, wax, shatter, edibles, concentrates, etc.
Cinex is popular among concentrate, oil, wax, and shatter creators. That is because it has a high THC percentage, which can be used to make incredibly potent concentrates. If you can get a hold of this strain and make it into a nice concentrate then you’re in for a treat.

Cinex is a sativa-dominant hybrid. This is the preferred combination for those who want to curb depression. Perhaps the best thing about sativa-dominant hybrids is that you get both the cerebral euphoria and the relaxing body high. This can be a perfect combination for anyone who’s got a lot on their mind they need to grapple with calmly or anyone who needs to do a little reflection. Whatever it is, Cinex will help you navigate those thoughts positively and productively.
This strain is also uplifting, which can be great for getting creative or for doing some chores. This strain is a perfect early morning or daytime strain, but shouldn’t be used at night if you’re wanting to sleep. This strain can be very strong for newcomers! Be warned. Only smoke a small amount to start with. If your head is rushing too much, have a cold shower or a coffee. This will help you focus your mind.

Cinex Growing tips
If you want to get bigger buds then you must learn certain techniques. This can really pay off for a strain such as Cinex, as every single big bud is invaluable for the consumer. Learn more about these techniques in the video posted above the effects. Cinex grows are:
- High yield
- Short grow times
- Staple for most growers
- High THC yield
- Perfectly balanced between sativa and indica
Unfortunately, Cinex seeds are very hard to come by. Of course, you can buy “Cinex” seeds from any seed shop online, but whether they’re actually Cinex or not… your guess is as good as ours. This strain is really only available in North America, and probably in certain Dutch coffee shops, thanks to the relationship some of them have with growers out in NA.
If you do manage to find Cinex, you can expect incredibly high yields, with high THC and large buds. This makes it an incredibly popular strain for those who can actually get clippings of it.
Xanax and weed
Combining the use of Xanax and weed is used by some people who claim that mixing the two can help you sleep more easily. The problem with this is that it is highly dependent on your tolerance of weed. Not to mention full research on the practice doesn’t exist, so instances of effects are pretty subjective. You should only consider this combination if you’re a seasoned stoner, otherwise the chances that you’ll feel awful afterwards are very real possibilities. We’re certainly not recommending the combination and suggest you do whatever homework you can to decide if it’s something that makes sense for you.
