About Cherry Lemonade
Subcool, also known as Dave Bowman, was a legendary, prolific cannabis breeder who died earlier this year from Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. One of the things he left behind is the Cherry Lemonade strain, an Indica-dominant (60/40) hybrid creation bred from a cross between Jack the Ripper and Cherry Pie OG. The mix of citrus, fruit, and fuel flavors entices new users who want to get a taste of some of Subcool’s life’s work.
This strain had a rough upbringing. The California wildfire that took nearly everything Subcool had worked for in 2017 also obliterated the Cherry Lemonade genetic stores (moms, dads, seeds, everything). But a friend came through with cuts of the parents that allowed the strain to live again. Its buds grow densely, frosted over with sugary trichomes, and smell fruity and fuely in your hands. Its branches are thick and sturdy, doubling in size as it hits the flowering stage. Harvests are usually mid-high and ready in around 56 to 63 days.
GROWING TIPS: Cherry Lemonade grows tall and strong, which is good for supporting the buds without help from a trellis. But this growing structure makes it necessary for you to step in if you want to maximize your yield. Heavy pruning, at least twice throughout the plant’s development, will help control the plant’s height and keep Cherry Lemonade’s energy focused on producing more flower sites.
Your tall, heavy, branchy Cherry Lemonade plants produce a ton of fat trichomes that make the plant perfect for harvesting extracts. As you smoke, you will feel soothed and clear-headed. Users report involuntarily smiling as their bodies and brains give in to the strain’s tender touch. The flavor is sweet and musky, like candied fruit mixed with diesel fuel. Other reported flavors include sour citrus, tart cherries, and herbal muskiness.
Cherry Lemonade is known for inciting relaxing, heady, and creative highs. It can make users feel less aware of their pain, more excited to enjoy their creative hobbies, and more willing to relax. The classic stoner’s high is accentuated by the burst of citrus fruit, musk, herb, and fuel flavors. The plant is strong and hardy enough to be a good crop for even inexperienced growers, though if you don’t have any pruning experience you’ll probably get some by raising Cherry Lemonade. Subcool may be gone, but this resin-packed, diesel-soaked beauty that represents some of his life’s work is still as good as ever.
