Lemon Kush: Ancient mountain Kush with a citrus bite
The exact lineage of Lemon Kush is something the cannabis community has trouble agreeing on. This should be no surprise given that the most famous members of the Kush family like Chemdawg and O.G. Kush have backgrounds shrouded in mystery. What we can confirm is that the Lemon Kush is an almost 50-50 indica-sativa hybrid.
Believed to be a crossing of old school earthy mountain Kush and a sweet lemon sativa. Some descriptions list a combination of Afghan Kush and Lemon G. While other seedbanks credit a mix of Master Kush and Lemon Joy as the parent strains. Regardless of the precise lineage, this Kush hybrid exudes indica traits with the sativa component expressing in the high.
Bursting with the terpene limonene Lemon Kush is renowned for her fresh lemon fragrance and sweet citrus smoke. The high is a pleasant mix of uplifting cerebral sativa effects coupled with a relaxing body stoned. Not as intense and Couchlocking as heavier indica-dominant Kush strains. A giggly social high is to be expected. Ideally suited for a de-stressing evening smoke session.
Lemon Kush is a medium-sized Kush that branches well and benefits greatly from early training and/or pruning. Internodal spacing is greater than stockier Kush varieties, although buds are just as resinous and tight as you would expect from a Kush. Organic cultivation followed by a good curing of buds is recommended to bring out the best in this tasty Kush. Outdoors in a hot dry southern climate, the Lemon Kush can be very productive.
Flowering is typically 8-10 weeks with the more sativa phenotypes taking the longest to reach harvest. Plants are relatively uniform with some height variations to be expected when growing from seed. Relatively easy to clone too, should you discover a keeper mom. Lemon Kush is a well-balanced hybrid with 20%+ THC levels.
