Lemon Skunk is the love child of two skunk phenotypes. The breeding project has created a powerful strain that offers an uplifting high. Lemon Skunk has proved its worth by winning multiple awards. It scored a first place award during the HighLife Cup in 2007 and another first place award during the Spannabis Cannabis Championships Cup during 2008. This strain is known for its complex characteristics when it comes to its high, scent, and taste. This impressive profile makes it appealing to cannabis connoisseurs.
Lemon Skunk is a sativa dominant hybrid that is made up of 60 percent sativa genetics and 40 percent indica genetics. This close balance of genetics creates a high that affects both the body and the mind. The head high is slightly more pronounced and produces a thought provoking and meditative experience.
This trait makes the strain a good choice when engaging in some deep conversation with friends, or when looking for some creative insight during artistic endeavours. The body high produced by the strain is also quite strong and creative calming and even sleepy effects if taken at the right times. The effects generated by smoking this strain have some medical potential when it comes to stress, pain, fatigue, and headaches.
The taste profile of Lemon Skunk is quite delicious. Upon toking a joint packed out with this strain smokers will experience hints of lemon grass, lime, lemon, orange, cedarwood, and sandalwood. The smell is also something of beauty. When removing Lemon Skunk flowers from the stash jar fumes with the scent of lime, lemon, berry, and vanilla will be released.
Lemon Skunk grows well in both indoor and outdoor conditions. One thing to consider is the height of the strain. The sativa genetics allow plants to peak at heights of 200cm, meaning either a big grow room or a garden is needed to let plants reach their full potential. The towering nature of this strain will produce yields of between 100 and 250g per square metre. The flowering stage lasts between 7 to 9 weeks.
