About Sour Lemons
Sour Lemons is a slightly Sativa-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis first grown in the United States. Sour Lemons is a not-so-well-known hybrid attributed to the illustrious Denver-based cannabis company Dark Horse Genetics. You might have heard of this company before, as they’re responsible for creating a number of stunning hybrid strains in addition to being the company who first bred Bruce Banner. Not much is known about Sour Lemons, unfortunately, as most confuse the name with another similar strain, Sour Lemons OG. We do know that this slightly heady high is best experienced during the daytime, though the average THC remains a mystery. A singular test data on this strain exists to the public, showing the strain tested for 16% THC, though we don’t know if this is a high, low, or an average of the strain’s possible THC values.
Sour Lemons buds are medium-sized, deep-green morsels of cannabis. They almost resemble limes in shape and color, though they are also covered in winding orange hairs and a thick layer of white trichomes. They produce, as the name suggests, a citrus aroma with a bit of musky earth and sharp herbs. The flavor is similar, with the added sour kick of citrus on the exhale which makes for a tasty experience. According to Dark Horse Genetics, this bud flowers in just 9 weeks, making it somewhat viable commercially.
As with most Sativa-dominant hybrids, Sour Lemons’ high is quite uplifting and euphoric in nature. Some have reported that this strain has helped them fall asleep in the evenings, though others recommend it for daytime consumption due to its energetic nature. This is likely because the bud is quite close to being an evenly balanced hybrid, meaning it will affect everyone differently.
Most report the strain to be incredibly uplifting right off the bat, alleviating doubts, anxieties, and even recursive thoughts with just a few hits. If you’re stuck in a rut and unable to get up and get yourself going throughout the day, Sour Lemons might be just the thing to get you unstuck and out the door. The few reviews of the strain that do exist also mention the fact that it has powerful mood-boosting effects that are sure to put a smile on your face for hours on end, which might also make for a good smoke before a night out with friends.
