Lemon Kush Strain
- Dry Eyes
- Dry Mouth
If you’re looking for a strain that will get you a strong, grounded high without knocking you out for the count, Lemon Kush might be a perfect choice. It is a hybrid of two strains, Master Lemon G and an Afghani Kush, so you can expect a powerful high that is decidedly happy.
This plant was bred by Alien Genetics and is now available at dispensaries throughout Colorado, Arizona, California, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Medical marijuana patients prefer Lemon Kush for its ability to help with insomnia, pain, anxiety, muscle spasms, and loss of appetite.
The effects of this strain range from cerebral to full body, so first-time users should exercise caution. It leaves euphoria and mild relaxation sensations and will make you feel giggly, happy, and energized. The high lasts about three to four hours, but one user claims that it lasted 11 hours after a single puff.
The THC level in Lemon Kush averages around 12% to 20%. The high is so strong that users can become paranoid if they take too much. One unpleasant side effect of this strain is dry mouth, and the smoker’s lips will actually feel parched after the high wears off.
The light green buds are covered in white frosting and have a sweet citrus flavor. It has enough ethereal kush flavor to keep things interesting without overwhelming the lemon. This strain gets its name from the fruit/lemon scent it has at harvest time.
It can be grown indoors or outdoors, but you’ll want to keep it away from bright sunlight where it might turn brown and lose its color production. Flowering usually takes nine to 13 weeks before Lemon Kush is ready to harvest. Outdoor harvest usually begins in July and stays active through October. This allows Lemon Kush to use cupping and drying techniques for later consumption or for crafting medicine.
