About Lemon OG

History & Genetics

Lemon OG, also known as Presidential Kush or Lemon OG Kush, is a hybrid cannabis strain, 60/40 indica. The strain has some distant Kush relatives so it can smell like skunk or have diesel fuel undertones. The THC level ranges between 17 and 24 percent with a negligible CBD at just 0.13 percent.

DNA Genetics, a popular seed company founded in 2004, bred the original Lemon OG by crossing a true Las Vegas Lemon Skunk cut with the OG #18 cut. What resulted was an abnormally high calyx-to-leaf ratio flower with an uncanny lemony, fuel taste and smell. In the ten years since the company’s inception and Lemon OG’s birth, both have been successful, winning plenty of awards.

Appearance, Aroma, & Flavor

Mostly though, Lemon OG is bred for an unmistakable lemon taste and smell. It is the lemoniest of the crosses being bred, and since users like the lemon, expect the strain to become more lemon and less kush/skunk/diesel, increasing its terpene profile of limonene while phasing out the taste of Kush.

Lemon OG may appear to be a paler green than other strains and it may even look yellow. Buds are sticky and the plant has white or orange trichomes, the plant’s appendages.


The strain’s THC profile makes it suitable for med patients and recreational consumers, but Lemon OG’s smaller CBD profile, like most cannabis strains, is not suitable for some of the more intense disorders like seizures. Strains with higher CBD content have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-anxiety properties. Generally, these CBD-rich strains have over 4 percent CBD.

Patients like the sedative effect of Lemon OG that helps with appetite and stress. Other uses include bipolar disorder, depression, PTSD, and OCD. It is also known for relieving nausea and increasing appetite.

Recreational users rave about the quick-acting psychoactive effects. Some say that the smoke is clear and the strain offers a relaxing, uplifting, and creative experience that begs the user to go out and do something. One person reported that it was a good mid-day experience; his focus improved at first and he got some pain relief later.


You can get feminized and auto-flowering seeds and grow Lemon OG indoors and outdoors. It's a great strain for beginner growers. The plant will grow short to medium-high. It should have long colas, and flowers in an average of 70 days with a good yield of around 16 ounces per square meter.

Well, that's it, we smoked with anasteysha, more indica, but you can feel the hybrid, and you want to sleep, especially after the marathon :-)

Definitely not for the beginner, very strong lemon aroma and easy on exhale. Head high followed by mellowed awareness.

The flower in my batch was a medley of dark green and yellow, decent size, density and a little dry, but not like some sativa strains (you know what i mean by that, crumbly and such) it smells like a bowl of lemons with a slight OG kind of undertone that i'd liken to cleaning agent intensity but more natural. The effects for me where a nice body buzzing sensation with a sleepy happy headiness. Also trippy as all get out, listening to music i can easily get lost in the sounds and feel like i'm in a music video of life. i'm not an OG fan but i could definitely buy this strain in a large amount and not complain one bit.
