All About Lemon OG Kush Weed Strain
The Lemon OG (or Lemon OG Kush) strain lineage has Las Vegas Skunk and the OG #18 types of weed which resulted in a well-balanced hybrid. Made of 60% Indica and 40% Sativa, it allows consumers to enjoy typical effects characteristic to both strains. It was first bred by DNA Genetics and has gained a lot of recognition among users. Its THC content is 17-21% with a CBD level of 0.34-1.44%.
Smell and Aroma
The smell of this marijuana is highly distinguishable. Being lemon, it also has skunky accents typical for OG strains. Above that, it has some earthiness related to wet soil and grass which you might find really fascinating. Some smokers may not like the taste of actual lemon peels, but the strain is quite delicious and most people enjoy it.
The kush has a lot of trichomes surrounding the buds. Aside from being green, the buds have yellow tints that make this strain look like an unripe lemon. Despite a sour scent, its taste is sweeter and can surprise smokers on the exhale.
Lemon OG Kush Effects
The strain is not long-lasting and affects users quite fast and rapidly. It is not quite suitable for beginner smokers because the rapid high may overwhelm them. Some of the effects include feeling giggly, energized, happy, and euphoric. Other consumers enjoy the increased amount of creativity as well as concentration and focus packed by the high of this cannabis.
The CBD and CBN rates are rather low, so the strain is not powerful for specialized medical purposes. However, it is used to treat a number of physical and mental conditions:
- chronic joint, back pain;
- attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder;
- chronic stress;
- bipolar disorder;
- multiple sclerosis.
Multiple terpenes (bisabolol, sabinene, ocimene, phellandrene) interact in the human body relieving pain and inflammation.
Just like all types of cannabis, the Lemon OG weed strain has some side effects. It does not matter whether you use it for medical benefits or recreational purposes. Possible adverse effects include headaches, thirst, fatigue, dizziness, anxiety, dry eyes, or paranoia. These reactions are easily manageable and don’t require medical attention.
Because of the strain’s immense popularity, the seeds are easy to come across. The plants have a standard flowering time of 68-75 days with a harvest time of 84-91 days. The cultivation difficulty is moderate. It can grow indoors and outdoors, but its flowers need more nitrogen to encourage growth and increase the number of calyxes. The average indoor plant height is 30-60 inches and 60-80 inches if they are grown in outdoor gardens.
Sativa and Indica lovers will enjoy smoking this strain. It can be used by both creative individuals like artists, who need to get their work done perfectly, and people with various ailments. Because of its potency and quick effects, Lemon OG is recommended to intermediate and experienced users.
