The Lemon Drop strain is a hybrid strain with the iconic Hindu Kush as its relative. The parent strains of this kush are Alaskan Matanuska Thunderfuck and Pakistani Landrace. It is pretty potent due to its THC level of 20-22.25% and CBD concentration of 0.44-0.51%. Check the list of other cannabinoids lab-tested in this plant:

  • CBC 0.3-0.6%
  • CBG 0.41-1.32%
  • CBN 0.24-0.48%
  • THCV 0.36-1.12%

Lemon Drop has a pure and refreshing citrus taste. It gives out the aroma reminiscent of lemon and grapefruit due to the high content of the pinene and caryophyllene terpenes. Also, it features an earthy and musty smell with hints of woodsy pine. When smoked in a pipe or a joint, it is easy on the palate and is exhaled with a sweet taste typical for myrcene.
