Lemon Skunk is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with the classic earthy aroma and taste that harkens back to the original skunk and displays an uplifting, creative high. Its parent strain is Early Skunk (Skunk I), which was inbred with a citrus-scented variety called Lemon Joy.
It originates in California. Sativas are traditionally known for their pronounced cerebral high, and Lemon Skunk delivers on this promise. Lemon Skunk has been designed to combat stress and depression without the typical downer associated with other strains.
The cerebral effects of this strain are upbeat and uplifting, great for social situations. In fact, Lemon Skunk is a great daytime choice that will also help you focus on whatever needs your attention. This strain is very energetic in effect, so you may find yourself pacing around if you have a desk job or other sedentary activity to complete.
The negative effects of Lemon Skunk can include dryness in the mouth and eyes. This makes Lemon Skunk a good choice for many patients with extreme pain, ADD/ADHD, or depression. This strain's high THC content of 18% ensures that you will be blazing it all day long if you start your morning right and carry on through the afternoon.
This strain has an illustrious lineage, and it shows in its beautifully fragrant buds. White hairs curl around tight nuggets of golden yellow trichomes that are both sticky to the touch and tastily aromatic.
Flowering takes 10 to 11 weeks, making it less than ideal for outdoor growing. However, indoor growing is very doable, albeit not for the beginner. Use short grow cycles to keep production steady, and don't forget to keep a close eye on your plant to prevent any mold or molds from setting in.
