Lemon Zest Review


Lemon Zest is one of the most potent strains that marijuana growers can offer. The THC of this strain ranges between 19% to 24% and due to that, it is used by medical practitioners as well. Not forgetting recreational users that just like to enjoy this strain because of its peculiar taste, aroma, and effects.

Lemon Zest is dominantly Sativa with a percentage of 95% and the remaining 5% being Indica. The CBD rate is unknown, just like many characteristics of this strain that are only known by its proprietary growers.

What is more on Lemon Zest to know about? Here is a detailed review.

History Of Lemon Zest

There is very little that the general public knows about the strain because it is only the breeders that know what went into creating it. The public only knows that it has high Sativa content and a little bit of Indica that goes with it and a very potent THC level.

The strain was bred by Wolf Genetics and is also known as Lemon Butter and although its origins aren’t revealed, there are some speculations.

Some have suspected that some form of citrus was used during the breeding process and that makes sense, especially considering the name. Another speculation is that it is a hybrid of lemon skunk and super silver haze.


Lemon Zest effects are uplifting and are all consistent with being a happy person, they include:

  • Creatives can use this strain to support their creativity when working on paintings, poems or designs. The strain will relax them and remove all stress when working, allowing their creative juices to flow freely.
  • Unlike a lot of strains, Lemon Zest helps those subjected to it become energized during its high. You can become very giggly when under the effects of this strain because of your spirits being uplifted.
  • For introverts, the Lemon Zest weed strain can help them become more social when they have to attend events where they will see unfamiliar faces. They will become more sociable and bear those few hours with people they aren’t used to.

Medical appointments

Lemon Zest has been used for a variety of medical appointments because of its properties that help ease inflammation, stress, and depression. People suffering from depression often can’t even muster up the energy to get off the bed and are usually unhappy and gloomy throughout the day.

Lemon Zest can give them the energy they need and also make them happy. These same characteristics make it suitable for treating chronic stress.


The negatives of using this strain are that you may experience fatigue, especially when the high wears off. Feeling fatigued may seem to defeat the purpose of using Lemon Zest, but this can be compared with the aftereffect of drinking energy drinks.

There is immense fatigue once it wears off, which is the equivalent of the negative effects of using this strain.

Using Lemon Zest for depression, chronic stress and inflammation could lead to experiencing the very symptoms you are trying to ward off. That happens on a case by case basis but this takes place mostly when the high wears off just like fatigue.

You can use this strain during the day to ensure that the symptoms return after your day has ended and when you are about to go to sleep.

What Are Reasons To Choose Lemon Zest?

Lemon Zest can be chosen just because of the taste and aroma when using it, as well as the effects. The name says it all concerning the taste because it has a sour yet sweet lemon citrus flavor and a bit of creaminess when exhaling. Its aroma also has traces of citrus with spicy herbs and an earthy smell, which is common amongst many strains.

Who Is More Suitable For Lemon Zest?

People who are more suitable to use Lemon Zest wax and buds are mostly from the creative realm. Introverts and shy people can also benefit from the effects of Lemon Zest that makes them more sociable.

Also, the strain makes you more focused, so people who need an extra amount of concentration can use the Lemon Zest for their benefit.

Opinion From The Growers

The strain is fairly simple to grow and makes growers happy because of its high yield. Its yield is a lot when considering the easiness of growing this strain and that makes the job of growers much easier. Experienced growers find it very easy to get the best harvest from this strain that comes at a high quantity.

How To Grow Lemon Zest?

You can purchase Lemon Zest seeds and start growing your own garden for this strain or even go commercial. Growing this strain is relatively simple and you can do so indoors as well as outdoors.

The most important thing you should do is ensure that cannabis is exposed to temperatures between 68 to 80 degrees. Keeping the growth of this strain between those temperatures will help keep all the nutrients in.

Is It Useful For Cooking Edibles?

Lemon haze is one of the most interesting strains to cook edibles with but it is completely possible. There are a variety of recipes online that you can follow that teach you how to cook with this strain.

Mostly, these recipes are baked products like pound cakes, cookies, and many others. Ensure that you follow the recipes quite closely and carefully to get the results you anticipated.

Related or Alternative Strains

Whether silver haze and lemon skunk were involved or not in the lineage of this strain, they are still very related to it. Lemon skunk also has that citrus-like taste and aroma, which suggests that it is related to the Zest.

Alternative strains to Lemon Zest are Durban Poison, Ghost Train Haze, and Golden Goat. These strains are all peculiar to each other but share the fundamental effects of Lemon Zest.


Lemon Zest is one of the most unique strains that cannabis users have ever encountered. Its properties that give off the effects of being motivated and energetic make it a prime target for the working class. Creative writers, graphic designers and others involved in artistic careers could benefit greatly from this strain.

    Donald Herrera

    I smoke this weed when I really want to focus on what Im doing, it destresses me completely

    Amy Watson

    I like to think of myself as a social smoker and thats not because I only smoke at parties or around people. I smoke so I can be around people and this is my go to strain for that because it keeps me calm and energized enough to make conversation.


    Smoked a bit of this dope a week ago, it took away all the jitters never been so relaxed

    Fred Beauregard

    Lemon Zest always makes me feel happy, it doesnt matter how bad my day was, Ill be laughing and happy after a few joints. A few joints of this weed also help raise my energy when Im feeling down and tired.

    James Pittman

    This weed plus a bong and some good music equals to some great upbeat vibes


    The taste was a bit strange for me but the high was great

    Jeffrey Davis

    I like writing novels and short stories in my spare time but I rarely ever finish a story, I get caught up in things and lose focus. I tried this weed a few weeks ago and its been helping stay focused hopefully Ill finish at least one short story this month depending on my work schedule


    This strain always makes me happy and I like that because it helps me when Im stressed out. The I get from this weed is amazing but I always smoke it before I sleep because when the high ends I feel fatigued and bummed out.

    Gregory Battle

    This my favorite weed, Im an energy person I like living life at an upbeat tempo and thats what this kush does for me. This weed can keep me going for hours at the gym, I like it.

    Al Marshall

    I concentrate better after a blunt of this

    Tracy Cagle

    Dope weed to game with

    Mark Reed

    If you really want a unique experience when smoking this weed try hitting a blunt whilst eating sour gummy candy. The lemony flavor of the buds will stand out a bit more with any sour candy but make sure you drink every now and then
