Melonade is an incredibly Sativa-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis first grown in the United States. First bred by Midwest Best, this strain was popularized by AlienLabs who took the strain all the way to the top of the 2018 Cannabis Cup. This 1st prize winning strain is known for its incredibly vibrant aroma and flavor profiles in addition to its light and heady cerebral high. It is a cross between Watermelon Zkittles and Lemon Tree. This strain contains an average THC concentration around 25%, and is perfect for a daytime or early afternoon smoke.
Unlike most Sativa-dominant flowers, Melonade buds are short and stout, almost shaped like spades. They are an incredibly bright shade of neon green that is sure to standout in the garden or even on the shelf in the dispensary. These bright neon overtones are contrasted with darker green undertones which give the strain unimaginable bag appeal. These buds are surrounded by thin orange and red hairs. The flowers are coated with a fine dusting of amber-colored trichomes which make the buds look like they were dipped in gold.
The aroma produced by these buds is quite obvious. These buds explode with a bright melon-scented aroma that is accented by spices and a bit of earthy citrus. The flavor is quite similar, though a bit more flavorful. Users have described a sweet fruity flavor combined with sour citrus, lemons, and a bit of fresh melon.
The delightful high produced by Melonade is quite similar in nature to the light and flavorful taste produced by its beautiful flowers. As soon as you take a hit of this light and airy strain, you should expect a creeping cerebral high to take root in your psyche. Before long, any negative thoughts or doubts you might have had are erased and replaced with pure happiness. In this blissful state, you’ll feel creative energy pouring in from every direction, and you’ll have the focus required to take down anything in your way. Be it a long list of chores or writer’s block, nothing will stop you in this invigorated state.
A subtly relaxing body high will also creep its way in during this time period, though it is not as pronounced as the cerebral high. It provides the necessary physical relief required for your body to accomplish all the to-do’s on that list or to finish up that art project. Melonade makes for the perfect daytime smoke when you just want to get stuff done without worrying or procrastinating.
I really did not like this at all. When I first smelled the bud it had some hints of fruit and almost like a slight chlorine smell. When I smoked it tasted like some ol reggie, zero fruit flavor, with a hint of chlorine....just bad. The high was really weak too. Maybe a bad batch? Either way unimpressed.
