The Flavoring Profile of the Lime Skunk Strain

The Lime Skunk weed strain is known for its amazing flavoring profile, which is achieved thanks to the inclusion of some of the truly delightful terpenes. The most abundant terpene in the strain is limonene, therefore its dominant flavor is lemon and lime. You will also feel a strong, pungent odor of skunk and sandalwood brought in by the presence of valencene. Other scents that consumers detect on exhalation are those reminiscent of orange and lemongrass and sweet notes of vanilla and berries that come from pinene, adding a pleasant sweetness to the marijuana’s flavoring profile.

Recreational and Medical Uses

With this cannabis, you’re guaranteed to experience a whole gamut of emotions, starting from a subtle cerebral stimulation and ending with pleasant physical relaxation. At first, you’ll likely feel a strong boost of energy, making you want to go do some work. Then you’ll delve into a state of happiness and euphoria that will make you clear-headed and focused and allow you to easily go through the boring daily routine. After a while, the feeling of euphoria will be replaced by a relaxing sedative effect, enveloping you in a soothing calmness from head to toe. With these effects in mind, it comes as no surprise that Lime Skunk is widely used as a remedy for treating health conditions and symptoms such as stress, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, inflammation, fatigue, and appetite loss. However, take note that an overly large dose may leave you with dry eyes, dehydration, and panic attacks. Therefore, it’s highly recommended to use it with caution.

How to Grow the Lime Skunk Strain

Growing this cannabis is quite easy, plus it’s easy to purchase its seeds online or in the nearest dispensary, which makes it a great pick for new growers. What’s more, the plant doesn’t need much maintenance and can thrive both indoors and outdoors, returning you heavy yields that may reach up from 400 g/m2 up to 550 g/plant, depending on where you decide to grow it. It’s also of note that this marijuana has a flowering time of only 52 to 65 days and is ready to harvest in mid-September, which makes it about the quickest strain available for purchase.

Lime skunk is not the strongest strain ever, but comes with a very interesting and versatile effect. Its not hazy. Quite the opposite gives you a sharp mind and clear thoughts. I smoke it in the morning to prep myself for a busy day.

LOVE IT! This is typical Sativa with very pleasant high. Hardcore stoner would probably use it as an appetizer or not at all. But if you are looking for some light weekend bud to put you in a good mood then this is the one for you.

For me this weed is spicy. Perfect for a quick boost, when you need something to instantly hit you high. The smell is strong at the beginning of burn . It’s good for the afternoon too. Would recommend it to a beginner for sure.

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder years ago. Truth be told Im not biggest weed lover so I was hesitant to try it out. When people from the local dispensary recommended Lime Skunk I wasnt raising my hopes. Thankfully I gave it a try. Im not cured but at least life is now more bearable.
