About this Hybrid Strain

The award-winning sativa-dominant hybrid strain, Lemon Skunk, is known for its potent, powerful, lemony taste and a smell that has skunky undertones. Its buds often contain patches of yellow or golden oranges, surrounded by medium-green leaves.

Born of Citrus Skunk and Skunk #1 genetics, this strain’s THC level average between 14-15% and has been tested to be as high as 22%. Its high is described by users to induce cerebral activity, producing increased creativity while lifting the spirits into a happy and energetic buzz.

Many reviewers have described their Lemon Skunk high as a complex state of introspection, evoking thought, and increasing ingenuity, while lasting a long time. Many say the indica aspects of the strain do tend to kick in after one to two hours, leaving the consumer slightly sleepy as the cerebral effects wear off. Common side-effects noted by users, besides dry mouth and eyes, are paranoia or anxiety if consumed in excess.

Lemon Skunk has won handful of awards around the world and is a good choice of strain for breeders of all levels, requiring between 55 to 65 days to flower.

Smells nothing like skunk. Smells like lemon custard/candy, somewhat similar to blackberry kush (but s lemony version). A dessert type of smell. The high is similar to black berry kush. Very pretty frosty flower but the effects were unsatisfying for me and the flavor was “ok” vaped but god smoking lemony flavored weed like this tastes dreadful. Like burnt lemons. Gassy or berry flavors carry into the smoke way more. Vape it or low temp dab it. This is for light sativa people only. Jack is heavier.

This is a keeper! when people talk about taste, they say citrus, skunk, gas, cheese, etc. I’ve been smoking for over 45 years, and there is that one taste that I have found GUARANTEES that you will get really stoned. I refer to it as the ‘piss on the fire’ taste, and this one has it all the way. Gets you really high, and it lasts a long time. What more can you ask?

Any folks that really know their bad smelling strains and how good they are might appreciate this : Jar smell it super skunky, and it smells like someone threw up Mike’s hard lemonade and fresh sicilian pizza right on a pile of skunk buttholes. if you know your smells this will tell you it is very potent . And it is at t31. as effects go stay small and it really is a nice comfy uplifting and happy strain. Treat yourself to the putrid smell. It is so good . I love gas and skunk so this was great.. I bet this would be superb for indoor games- shuffleboard, chess, intense rpg, probably great for sex too lol.

1242 here pick this as a favorite strain. Do not care what type it is, mmmm mmmm good give me more! I heard recently that the lemon flavor and aroma may actually call down some of the effects of the THC. I drink lemonade and eat chocolate with it when I am smoking it up. I also ate a kiwi with it one night, and not sure what happened, but whatever it was, it was good.

The terpenes in this strain are the bomb – in fact, anything with this strain in it will make you smile and feel upbeat about the world. Another go-to strain for me; if I can find it locally, I will buy as much of it as I can.

The lemon flavor seems to help with depression better than others. Wonderful [email protected]@@

Tastes like where I was born. I love the CBN / THC for full spectrum. Most of the time is available in Maryland. There is even enough indica properties for me to enjoy this at night .

Should I try it !

Really, this is one of the best strains I’ve tried. Easy top 10. Music gets about 200% better on it. Lemon Pledge taste, nice sativa high, but it can make you paranoid if you’re not in the most comfortable social situation. This is also excellent herb to mix with others, as it adds a little “juice” to almost any strain. There’s a reason why this is literally crossed with a million different strains: those genetics are pure gold!

I can understand why growers recommend to grow this strain outside. It stretches like crazy when switching the photo period to 12/12. Stems get very lanky and bud get very heavy with resin, so you’ll need to support the colas. The fragrance during flower is a wonderful sweet lemon sent. Be sure to use a pk boost during flower to make it sugar up properly. Lemon skunk grown properly is stunning to smoke, with its smooth lemon flavor and a touch skunk. I’ve found that most lemon skunks at dispensaries have been substandard but once in a while you’ll run into a batch that the grower put a lot of love into and it will be delightful. Harvesting lemon skunk at the right time is key to its classic taste and smell.

With THC levels that reach 22% in some tests, this is a very potent sativa-heavy hybrid. Lemon Skunk, which has a sativa/indica ratio of 60:40, is the award-winning descendant of two distinct Skunk phenotypes that were selected specifically for their tangy lemon traits. The aroma is Skunky and sw…
