Khalifa Mints

from Trulieve

An exotic tinge of flavor that transports you to the tropics.

Trulieve has produced sunshine in a flower with their rendition of Khalifa Mints, a euphorically mellow daily driver for all your spring activities. The first expansion of the Khalifa Kush genetics catalog, this stunner is a cross between the aforementioned Khalifa Kush and The Menthol – responsible for leaving a minty-fresh impression on the connoisseur community that continues to linger in the best of ways. 

Bred by Compound Genetics and selected by Wiz Khalifa himself, this cultivar is a truly exquisite example of the marriage between connoisseurship quality and the practical needs of the daily toker. With more than enough potency to touch your symptoms and a profile that keeps you active, uplifted and euphoric, it’s kind of hard to not smoke on the Khalifa Mints all day long.

With a powerful kick of limonene at the top of the profile, the Khalifa Mints unleashes a wave of energetic euphoria that really brightens the mood and energizes the spirit. Which isn’t to say that she takes you too far in this direction, because the profile has an immediate linalool and caryophyllene temper that mellows out the fireworks without dousing it with a heavy couchlock. The end result is a positive cerebral state coupled with a day-to-day productivity that is unparalleled in quality of experience and effect. And we haven’t even factored in the perpetual olfactory delight and truly milky smoke that pours from this flower. 

With an undeniable citrus fruit fragrance at the top of the nose of the Khalifa Mints, its blend of creamy floral spice with light kerosene smacks the senses with an exotic tinge of flavor that transports you to the tropics. Popping one of the jars immediately conjures up the image of a grapefruit soaking in coconut milk that’s been spiced and flowered, sitting next to a grill and waiting to be flambeed or bruleed into some form of delicious goodness. Truly a tantalizing aroma that accentuates the pleasure of the experience and the quality of the product overall.

As I go about my spring cleaning and get ready for the madness of summer, I need a toke of something that actively keeps me going and complements my energy for the day. Khalifa Mints is the perfect daily driver of the season that balances cerebral euphoria with the mellow moods I need. Keep an eye out for these showcase nugs from Trulieve … this fire is a surefire bet to fly off shelves.
