About Amnesia Lemon
Barney’s Farm Labs and Soma created Amnesia Lemon and now share the honor of this Cannabis Cup-winning Indica/Sativa (50/50) strain. The flavors of citrus and other complex herbal notes (some sweet and surprising!) make Amnesia Lemon a fascinating strain. The delicious taste and uniquely shaped plants make Amnesia Lemon a compelling addition to any user that favors complex, balanced, high-quality cannabis.
Firstly, we have to mention the Cannabis Cup. This competition provides a huge pool of judges to not only give feedback to growers based on the experience with their product but to shine the limelight on the highest quality products. Breeders that want to give their strain superstardom in the cannabis consumer market vie for the Cannabis Cup. Since winning it in 2004, Amnesia Lemon has become a household name in balanced strains.
Growers should appreciate Amnesia Lemon’s ability to grow well both in and out of doors. The plant grows in narrow, long colas that stay super dense even at a height of 110cm or more. Even in random outdoor locations, you can expect this height and a decent yield when it flowers in 9-10 weeks (expect them in late September or early October). With their decent stats and unique plant shape, nothing should stop a grower from enjoying the complex chaotic citrus palette of this balanced strain.
The breeders created Amnesia Lemon by crossing Lemon Skunk with Amnesia Haze, giving it a compelling flavor not quite like any other strain. The obvious overtone of citrus makes Amnesia Lemon satisfying but lays on top of other complicated subtle flavors that give the strain a mix of herbal tastes. Users say it reminds them of certain teas. You may taste hints of ginger, licorice, and marshmallow, which further serve to heighten the herbal scent. These along with interesting musky and earthy tones of fruit make it fascinating to breathe in as you relax. Burning Amnesia Lemon smells not only of marshmallow and lemon but lime, sandalwood, apricot, and nectar.
Despite its balance between Sativa and Indica, Amnesia Lemon’s effects emphasize Sativa-like symptoms of a heady high with relaxing cerebral sensations. This not only feels uplifting but can even act as a mild aphrodisiac. It comes with a body high after you sit for a while -- it calms you down, relaxes your racing mind, and puts you to sleep. Amnesia Lemon gets you invested in creative feelings and hanging out with friends. You’ll be ready for a great time any time of day, but you’ll eventually be locked down and ready to go to bed (or to couch).
Users looking not only for a complex cocktail of herbal, hashy, earthy flavors but also respite from pain and stress can use Amnesia Lemon. Growers recognize its spindly colas and fruity scent immediately while users, especially those that favor the taste of herbal, earthy teas, just appreciate how unique and compelling it is to smoke. They appreciate it so hard they don’t ever want to get up.
