All About Lemon Kush Cannabis Strain
Lemon Kush is a highly potent strain with a high THC level of 21-23% and minimal or non-existent levels of CBD, which makes this hybrid strain a very potent psychoactive agent. As a matter of fact, since Lemon Kush is only 50% Indica and is also 50% Sativa, you can expect a big set of effects overwhelming your body and brain when you consume the weed, regardless of your consummation method.

Flavors and Fragrances
Thanks to the chemical compound called D-Limonene, Lemon Kush has its lemony taste and smell. D-limonene is a terpene that occurs naturally in citrus fruits. It’s also used to enhance the fragrance of perfumes and lotions industrially. When you open up a Lemon Kush jar, you can expect a strong smell hitting your nose. This smell is of sweet and citrusy lemon. And when you break apart the buds, you’ll experience a fresh new set of smells, including hints of musk and earth.
The flavor of the strain is also lemon-like, but sweet. It has notes of tang and spice but it lacks the elements of ammonia and diesel aftertaste that many lemon marijuana strains have. With a rather harsh smoke that will quickly fill up your lungs, you could inhale slowly if you are an inexperienced smoker. Otherwise, this strain can induce coughing.
The Lemon Kush plant can be grown by experts and newcomers because of its simple growing requirements. It can also be grown indoors or outdoors, although the first is the most preferred and recommended option. When grown outdoors, the plant thrives in the Mediterranean, warm climate. That being said, the plant will probably have trouble in regions that don’t have consistent sunlight and warmth.
On the other hand, when the Lemon Kush plants are grown indoors, growers use high-watt bulbs. Under the right conditions, the plants grow around 4 to 6 feet in height. Their shape is the standard Indica shape, which means that you can expect a bushy plant that might need some trimming for warmth and water to get to the lower branches.
The plant needs to be grown in organic soil and requires nutrients such as vitamin B, humic acid, and some enzymes. Indoors, these plants will flower at the 8 to 10-week mark. They should be ready to be harvested somewhere between the middle of September and the middle of October.
After 10 weeks, the flowering period ends and the plant is ready to be harvested. The outdoor crops grown in the right conditions yield higher than the indoor crops, with around 35 ounces per plant compared to 18 ounces per meter when grown indoors.
