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.

Its lineage has differing variations. The more commonly noted parents of Lemon Kush are Master Kush and Lemon Joy. However, Alien Genetics has bred Lemon Kush by crossing Lemon G (aka Lemon G13) and a pure landrace Afghani Kush.

Description

This Lemon Kush has some sweet citrus qualities to the smell and taste but Afghani hash plant parentage muted the sweet lemon candy of the Lemon G. The appearance was solid but unspectacular, and yet we all thoroughly enjoyed the effects, which were a moderate Sativa-leaning positivity and energy to go along with some Indica relaxation and body effects.

Lineage

Lemon G-13 x Afghani Landrace

Story

Alien Genetics pollinated the Ohio Lemon G clone only with his Afghani “Kush” Landrace male to create this seed line.

Appearance

Spiral dark olive open cluster calyxes with muted goldenrod pistils, and short fat trichomes with large heads

Aroma

Lemons and a nutty, slightly vegetal quality (reminded one reviewer of almonds). There was a slightly putrid twang that came out after grind as well, a bit of “poo” smell.

Flavor

Lemony, with a flowery finish that carried notes of peppermint and grass. The smoke was extremely smooth on the throat

Qualities

An initial boost of energy was the main effect, but after about 30 minutes, the real potency arrived (definitely a creeper) and sent relaxation throughout the body and cast a bit of a haze over the mental proceedings. The eyes were burning a bit and sensitive to light, with an increase in internal pressure. Social interaction was pleasant and easy thanks to the elevated mood and mental energy. Later in the duration it became more relaxing and the head effects died down for the most part — a nice, soft drop back to normalcy.
