About Lemon Skunk
History & Genetics
Lemon Skunk is an award-winning sativa hybrid, known for its lemon flavor and a THC count as high as 22%. It made the High Times list of top 10 strains in 2009. Lemon Skunk is designed by DNA Genetics, who chose two different strains of skunk with a strong flavor and scent of lemons as its parents. The mother is a skunk that originated from Vegas, while the father came from Holland.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
As you may guess, this strain is super skunky with a delicious lemony taste on the inhale. It grows with thick orange hairs and light green nugs.
Its effects begin with a surge of uplifting cerebral stimulation, which often leads to introspection. Many describe this strain as thought-provoking and creativity-inducing, and some find Lemon Skunk to be also exhilarating and energetic. Often, the numbing and calming effects of the body stone cause users to feel slightly sedated.
Inexperienced users may find it puts them to sleep an hour or two after the initial cerebral stimulation wears off. Negative effects are the common ones: dry mouth and eyes, possible paranoia, anxiety, and dizziness, especially when the strain is used in high doses.
Lemon Skunk performs well when used for daytime pain relief, especially in the case of chronic migraines, and is most often prescribed for this purpose. Those suffering from stress, anxiety, and depression favor this strain for its mood elevating properties. The strain is also used for the relief of nausea and eating disorders.
The strain grows easily and is suitable to growers with any experience level. It thrives both indoors and out. Needing 55 to 65 days to finish, the strain can reportedly produce up to 600 grams per square meter. Outside, Lemon Skunk is usually ready for harvest in October in the Northern Hemisphere and in April in the Southern.
Best tasting weed I have smoked yet.I love this taste + its not so heavy on my throat its really nice.
This is top 3 for me. This is the perfect strain while at work, try it......you will thank me
Suffering from severe anxiety and depression I have to say the only down fault to this strain is that *if you do use it in high doses like other reviews state, it can increase your anxiety to the point of paranoia. That being said, it’s an obvious risk with marijuana in general. overall I think this strain is smooth, has great flavor for someone with a sweet tooth and gets the job done.This has got the mistress’s boot stamp of approval
Really really nice high -- but as an old-school roller, I must say that it was a bit "sticky," esp. considering the price. Overall, pretty great.
Vape: Terrapin Pod. Tastes great. provides an uplifting effect. feel calm but a bit too much body stone for me. good strain for relaxing. Feel like I want a nap.
