About this Hybrid Strain

The distinct smell and taste of the well-balanced hybrid (50/50) cannabis strain Lemon Kush is a potent lemony zest that smells refreshing and tastes both sour and sweet. Its buds are small and light green with patches of yellow accompanied with thick, amber hairs when ready for reaping.

Its THC levels average at 20% with a high of 26%, making Lemon Kush an extremely potent strain. Its high is known to induce a couch-lock effect while energizing one’s cerebral activity and creativity. It causes the consumer’s spirits to lift while eliminating physical aches throughout the body, with reviewers stating the sativa and indica effects go well together and balance one another out. This strain is useful for consuming in the afternoon or evening, so long as physical activity isn’t going to be a part of your day.

The pungent lemon scent is indicative of high levels of limonene, a liquid hydrocarbon that some research claims to help fight carcinogens (a substance capable of causing cancer).

Among the adverse effects are dry mouth and in some cases, paranoia or dizziness if consumed improperly.
