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.

The name can be used to describe a variety of strains. The creators of the renowned Alien Kush, Alien Genetics, believe that the strain was created by crossing Afghan Kush and Lemon G.

Lemon Kush Strain’s Effects

When you consume the Lemon Kush marijuana strain, you can enjoy a slowly rising strain. It usually takes five to ten minutes before you start experiencing its amazing effects. This high is characterized by an enhanced cerebral focus and creativity burst. Consumers name such effects as the most common for this cannabis strain:

Lemon Kush is the ideal strain for patients since it can be used at any time without causing drowsiness or sleepiness. It has the wonderful effect of relaxing the body and removing pain from it. This is why Lemon Kush is used by people who suffer from:

  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Muscle spasms

In addition to physical relief, Lemon Kush offers mental relief, too. It’s known to be a massive deterrent for anxiety and stress. Furthermore, the strain is used to help with mood disorders such as bipolar and depression.

Lemon Kush has the adverse effects that are common with most cannabis strains, especially highly potent strains. These include dizziness and mild paranoia as the most severe possibilities, but also the less reported effects. Dry mouth, on the other hand, is the most common side effect of taking this strain.

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.

Grow Info

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.

    Well, my story with LK didn’t go as planned at all. I thought it would be a really uplifting strain and at first, it was. However, after about an hour, I started to feel apathetic and found no other choice than go to sleep. Perhaps, it’s just me, but the

    This is a real creeper that slowly comes and hits with a hit of euphoria that perfectly matches the sweet lemon taste. It has a long-tasting lemony aftertaste, which for some moment seemed to me as if the high fused with the taste itself. Although this u
