About Lemon Wreck
Lemon Wreck (also known as Lemon Trainwreck) is a cross between the distinctive-tasting Lemon Diesel and the notoriously potent sativa Trainwreck. This complex hybrid offers a very strong citrus flavor profile along with a dynamic mix of mental and physical effects. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has tested multiple flowers of Lemon Wreck and has found them to have a consistent THC content of about 15%.
Lemon Wreck’s distinctive flowers are larger than average and have a long, almost cylindrical shape. The wispy leaves hold together in a loose, sativa-typical bud structure and can pull away easily from their central stems. The leaves themselves are a mossy green, accented by brown to rust-colored hairy pistils. These flowers are also very resinous, covered in trichomes that range in color from transparent to milky white, depending on the individual plant phenotype. As you might expect, the predominant aroma wafting off of these chunky buds is of sour lemon. Some notes of skunk and diesel hang around underneath, balancing out the primary citrus impression. Lemon Wreck burns smoothly and is easily inhaled when combusted. On the exhale, it has a sour, mouth-puckering taste. It also has a pungency that can linger for a while after users have enjoyed a toke; anyone looking to keep their smoking discreet should take the necessary precautions.
Lemon Wreck’s cerebral effects arrive early, making themselves known with a bracing pressure in the forehead and around the eyes. Shortly after they’ve savored this strain’s unique flavor, users are struck with with a suddenly acute perception of external stimuli and an increased suggestibility to their own racing thoughts. Once smokers have adjusted to this altered state, they may find themselves able to enjoy the trip by indulging in some boldly-flavored snacks or by watching a particularly trippy movie. Within relatively little time, Lemon Wreck’s full psychoactive potential blooms in the form of deep relaxation. Discernible indica effects spread down from the neck, through the core and limbs, helping users to feel less tense and allowing them to breathe more easily. Eventually, smokers may find themselves pinned to the closest couch. Any of this strain’s early cerebral or analytical vibes soon give way to a cloudy, daydreaming mindset, making Lemon Wreck a perfect choice for early evening to night time use. For optimal effect, toke on these flowers at least two to three hours before heading to bed.
Just as Lemon Wreck can have both mental and physical users for the recreational smoker, it can also have various applications for medical cannabis patients. Its sedation may numb aches and pains -- whether incidental, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia or lupus. The strain’s anti-inflammatory properties can also soothe headaches and stomachaches of varying degrees of severity. In high enough doses, Lemon Wreck can also prove beneficial in trenchant cases of insomnia. Because of its initial surge of sativa intensity, this may not be the best variety for those who experience frequent panic, or those who have a lower than average tolerance for THC.
No single commercial breeder has claimed responsibility for Lemon Wreck’s creation, and none have released the strain’s seeds for commercial sale. As such, prospective growers must obtain clippings from mature plants of this strain in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” It can be successfully cultivated indoors or out, although growing calls for semi-humid climates with daytime temperatures in the 70 degree Fahrenheit range. Like many sativa-dominant strains, it has a long flowering time of about 9 weeks when grown indoors. It offers growers a moderate yield of about 42 grams (or 1.5 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant. Finally, just as it is a pungent smoke, Lemon Wreck can be a very smelly strain to grow; growers may want into invest in odor-control measures like exhaust fans or carbon air filters.
Lemon Wreck’s singular psychoactive profile -- in which an early sativa kick gives way to a mellow and thorough indica body stone -- is a great choice for small gatherings of friends who know each other well. It’s also a good option for simply unwinding at home after a long day or week at work.
