About Legendary Lemon
Even without its bold flavor, Legendary Lemon would be notable for its prestigious genetics. The sativa-dominant hybrid comes from Mexican landraces Oaxacan and Zacatecas and the aromatic strain Lemon Skunk and Lemon Kush. It offers a buzzy, head-focused high that lasts longer than average. Legendary Lemon’s THC content has been measured at between
Legendary Lemon’s flower are marked by an impressively large size and a rounded, slightly elongated shape. Despite their sativa influence, they cling together in a tight, characteristically indica structure. The small and tightly-curled leaves are a vivid spring green and are twisted through with neon yellow pistils. Finally, glassy trichomes cover all visible surfaces of these compact buds.
This strain’s aroma is even more striking than its jumbo flowers. When properly cured, they have a fruity scent, redolent of peaches and berries. A second whiff may also detect some astringent chemical odors. When the buds are ground up or broken apart, they may have more of a skunky, sour tang. Legendary Lemons burns with a smooth smoke that can be easily inhaled; on the exhale, it has just a hint of lemon, mixed with the scent of ammonia.
Unsurprisingly, given its sativa background, Legendary Lemon takes effect relatively quickly. Soon after toking, users may be struck by a rush of warmth in the face that may also come with some pressure in the temples or an increase in salivation. As these odd sensations subside, a focused and deliberate mindset takes over in which certain ideas (or even inanimate objects) may take on a new fascination. Users may also find that their thoughts can jump from one of the next in a chain of free association. At this stage, properly motivated consumers may be able to make some progress on projects, whether they’re analytical and task-based or more open-ended and creative. For those who aren’t feeling quite as productive, Legendary Lemon may simply provide some background amusement as they go about their daily agendas.
Even after an hour or so, Legendary Lemon’s energy remains undiminished. While they may have a new kind of bodily awareness, smokers tend not to be slowed down by relaxation. Instead, this bud’s buzzy properties can enhance activities that require both mental and physical coordination, like light exercise, gaming, or sex. Thanks to its cerebral nature, Legendary Lemon may also spark conversation when shared among friends -- or even with new acquaintances. Because of its mostly upbeat vibes, this sativa is best enjoyed during the daytime, possibly as a wake-and-bake treat. If smoking it at night, consumers shouldn’t plan on falling asleep in the near future.
Legendary Lemon’s soaring effects can also have some psychological benefits for medical cannabis patients. Its plugged-in way of thinking may help those with attention deficit disorder to sustain concentration on single tasks. Additionally, its potentially euphoric mood can temporarily improve the troubling symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. While physical benefits are few, they may include anti-inflammatory properties that relieve mild aches and pains like headaches. Because its long-lasting cerebral thought process can turn to paranoia in the wrong set and setting, Legendary Lemon is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic.
Seeds of this hard-to-come-by strain are not available for sale online. Instead, home growers should obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants of the strain in order to propagate clones. Legendary Lemon can be grown indoors or out; although outdoor cultivation typically requires daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, this strain’s hardy landrace roots may make it resistant to adverse conditions like climate fluctuation or mold. Similarly, its sativa background suggests that its plants grow tall and branchy and reach maturity after about 9 to 10 weeks.
If spotted on dispensary shelves, Legendary Lemon is one strain worth snatching up by sativa lovers. Its surprising flavor profile may also make it of interest to terpene connoisseurs.
