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.
I just got this strain in the mail today and it was worth the wait this stuff reminds me of 30 yrs ago,gives you the munchies nice and euphoric.
This strain kicks ass! Wont make you tired or lazy. Gives a pleasant high and tastes just as it smell. Lemon skunk is a heavy weight when it comes to harvest time. The plant isn't strong enough to hold it's own weight towards the end of flower because of the huge crystallized flowers it products. A must have for any one who likes to smoke bud.
some of the best dope i have ever smoked.
Picked up some lemon skunk from my delivery in Olympia, Washington which is not on Wikileaf yet. This was the first time I've ever smoked, smelled and tasted a strain that truly tasted like its name. I had lemon on my tongue for hours after smoking it and was really surprised that it was so obviously a lemon strain. Will definitely order this again from my delivery.
This is a great strain for doing errands or housework. It's Euphoric but your focused too. One of my favorites.
