Lemon Skunk is a Sativa-dominant 60/40 hybrid strain. It is a numerously awarded winner of various competitions, including High Times’ top 10, Spannabis, and Highlife Cups. The history begins a long time ago, in 1985, when DNA Genetics bred it for the first time. Lemon Skunk weed strain represents a cross between two different phenotypes of Lemon Skunk, which were brought together to create a distinct lemon flavor.

Lemon Skunk strain contains an average THC level, which ranges between 17%-19%. This cannabis is not recommended to novices because its strong potency is a well-known fact and another reason for connoisseurs to like it.

Judging from its name, it is not hard to guess that the fragrance is reminiscent of lemons. In addition to a prevailing sour aroma of lemons, there are also hints of earthiness and skunk. Smoking provides a delicious taste of sweet lemons and citrus fruits with a little presence of skunk.

Lemon Skunk Strain Effects Review

Due to its almost equal ratio of Sativa and Indica, the weed causes influence on the body and head. Usually, it begins with a boost of energy and euphoria, which lifts the mood in no time. On top of that, the high also increases creativity and rewards with a dose of happiness. Afterward, a palette of those effects leads to great conversations with your friends and a lot of giggles.

The medical potential of this kush is quite enormous, as it just washes mood disorders away. Therefore, such issues as stress, fatigue, and depression are not a problem anymore. Moreover, it has pain-relieving properties and sometimes even used for dealing with nausea and ADD or ADHD. The side effects are pretty soft, including cottonmouth and dry eyes. Nevertheless, it may cause anxiety and paranoia if the person is in unpleasant conditions.

Growing Info

At the moment, there are no available offers for the purchase of Lemon Skunk strain by DNA Genetics on the Internet. Even novice growers can handle it, as the plant is persistent to diseases and simple to grow. The only thing this cannabis strain requires is a lot of free space because of its height, which can reach up to 2 meters. It can be grown indoors and outdoors. The flowering cycle longs about 8-9 weeks. When grown outdoors, the harvest month is early October.

Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.

CBG 0.23 - 0.9% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component.
