Podcast Guests



April Pride: This podcast discusses cannabis and is intended for audiences 21 and over.

April Pride: Cinex totally inspired a solo silent disco party with Dua Lipa and Sean Paul. By the end of the first song, what I really was inspired to do was to find someone to dance with me. Let’s just say I vouch for the strain’s sex appeal.

April Pride: Welcome to Saturday Strains. I’m your host, April Pride, and I’ll be your guide each Saturday as we move through the 12 essential cannabis strains that every woman should have in her stash. If you haven’t already, please listen to the three short Saturday Strains Explained episodes to learn more about how cannabis is a lot like another substance we can count on to change our outlook, wine. In each episode, you can expect more weed hacks, and remember, we’ll guide you from less intoxicating strains that are nearly all CBD to strains with increasingly higher THC levels.

April Pride: For today’s strain, I’d like you to conjure the smell of a zested lemon rind. Do you notice your mouth getting that Sour Patch Kid feeling, or maybe you smell the zest, and it gives you a little lift? That’s a great introduction to Cinex. We’ve briefly talked about terpenes and the cannabis plant, and the lemony smell, taste, sensation when it comes to weed is a terpene called limonene. Strains that are dominant in this terpene give a shot of uplifting energy to your system, but be warned. If you’re sensitive to coffee or other stimulants, Cinex and other strains dominant in limonene can cause the same jittery and anxious feelings. We don’t want to overwhelm you with plant talk, but pay attention to how the strain makes you feel, and know that identifying how the smell and taste work or don’t work for you is an important clue to finding your right weed.

April Pride: All right. Let’s answer five questions to get to the bottom of what makes Cinex one of the essential strains. Number one, what does it help with? Anxiety, motivation, and sex. Number two, how high will I get? A moderately intoxicating high that is best for those who do not experience anxiety while high or not. Does caffeine induce a quicker heart rate and make you a little extra jumpy? This is probably not the strain or family of strains for you. You heard the weed hack about adverse effects of the terpene limonene. If this already doesn’t sound appealing, stay tuned for future episodes that offer energizing strains without this terpene.

April Pride: Number three, how will it make me feel? Cinex is a hybrid produced between two strains, Cinderella 99 and Vortex, Cinex.

Cinderella 99 is also known as Cyndi or C99 and produces a potent cerebral high often described as dreamy, euphoric, and uplifting.

Vortex is a stream that lives up to its name. It pulls you in, and I feel confident in saying the intoxication of Cinex fits just right, like a glass slipper, and is equal to the thrill of riding in Cinderella’s modernized carriage, engineered by Elon Musk to effortlessly glide between the stars and the seas.

April Pride: Number four, why do women love it? This strain hits quickly, and during the day, Cinex is an emotional uplift that makes working at home a place of serenity, rather than a place of more and more, more of the same. For those looking for alternatives to prescription meds for ADHD or as a complement to your existing prescribed meds, Cinex is reported to be an ideal option. For more on how cannabis can affect prescription medication, listen to our episode number four, About Pot and Pills. The high energy and clear mind that Cinex inspires also makes it a perfect wake and bake strain.

April Pride: Why do I love Cinex? So after doing my weed research, which is, of course, a very important part of my job, I ended my evening with a pre-roll of Cinex after dinner, outside, in front of our new little bonfire thing, wrapped in blankets with my husband and a friend. I was motivated enough to set the scene, and then I happily settled into a relaxed conversation in which I was both able to follow and meaningfully contribute.

April Pride: Number five, what will it inspire? Consider Cinex focused, friendly fire.

With results described as a present confident head coupled with a relaxed body, Cinex is the strain for those who are looking to be high while functioning. Perfect for right-brain creatives, Cinex inspires focused, creative play in the bedroom as well, it should be noted.

You should also take note that the increased energy and stamina induced by this strain may interfere with sleep if taken within two hours of bedtime.

April Pride: Some parting words. Please reserve judgment if a strain we recommend doesn’t work for you. You haven’t failed, and neither have we. In fact, haven’t gotten it wrong. You’re one step closer to your right high. You didn’t quit drinking on a Long Island iced tea as your first bar drink turned out to be a wrong move, right? Send us a DM to add to the pot or to me directly @aprilpride and let us know how this strain worked for you.

April Pride: Thank you for listening to Saturday Strains. Check us out online at, and special things to Lo Friesen, Founder, CEO, and Chief Extraction Officer of Seattle’s beloved cannabis brand, Heylo. She vetted the strain list, and she recommended Trail Blazin’ Farms, which produced the Cinex that I sampled for this episode.

April Pride: We’d also like to thank Jeffrey Raver, PhD, and Colin Montgomerie of The Werc Shop, as well as Nick Jikomes, PhD, of Leafly for schooling us on strains. Thanks to my co-founder, Ellen Scanlon, Madi Fair, our marketing manager, and our producer, Nick Patri. I’m April Pride, and we’ll be back soon with more of How to Do the Pot.
