A popular strain for over a decade, Lemon Skunk has deep roots in the cannabis community having been praised by legends in the industry. With a bright, powerful flavor and powerful effects, this high-THC strain is a terrific smoke.

Hybrid : 60% Sativa, 40% Indica
14-22% THC
Lineage: Two unknown Skunk strains
Flavor profile: Lemon, pungent, skunk, citrus, sweet.

 

 Effects

The sativa buzz hits you right away with a clear-headed, stimulating head high. Ideal for listening to music, introspection or light activities, Lemon Skunk won’t bog you down as much compared to other strains, particularity indica-dominant ones.

Roughly a couple hours after its initial cerebral high, light sedation will start to hit. This strain won’t couch lock you like other, more powerful indicas will either, however it will leave you slightly tired.

Lemon Skunk is rather low in CBD and CBN, so keep that in mind if you’re looking for a medical cannabis strain.

Lemon Skunk Strain Macro Picture

Lemon skunk has a delicious and powerful citrus profile to it. If you’ve ever tried Super Lemon Haze, you’ll understand how Lemon Skunk donates a lot of its flavour and odour to it. It has a light and rich citrus opening flavour, which transitions to a heavy, mouth tickling skunk flavour. Notes of other citrus fruits can be felt, and both lime and tangerine both come to mind.

The strain has a nice, bright, and powerful smell to it. Like opening a bag of citrus or smelling a bottle of Lemon Pledge, there’s no doubt your nostrils will be happy with this one. The skunky aroma is also quite powerful, filling the room with its distinguishable scent quickly.

 

 

History

Famously created by DNA genetics, two unknown skunk phenotypes were bred together to create one of the most popular strains we know today. One of the seeds originated from Las Vegas by one brilliant grower who shared his cuttings with high-end growers in Amsterdam back in 1999.

 

By 2007 it had won first place in the High Life Cup for DNA Genetics who had crossed it with what we know to be Skunk #1. Now the strain can be found commonly worldwide in various coffeeshops and dispensaries.

 

While the DNA Lemon Skunk is the original of the citrus skunk beasts, plenty of seed banks now carry slight variations on this plant with great potential too.

 

Lemon Skunk has served as a strain which breeders have created some other great strains with such as: Super Silver Haze, Lemon Skunk Diesel, Double Tangie Banana, Lemon Haze, Loud Lemonade and more!

 

Awards:

1st place, High Life Cup, 2007

1st place, Spannabis Champions Cup, 2008
