Like a sweet, smelly citrus meeting an abrasive blue cheese, Lemon Diesel packs an intense lemon flavor with an uplifting, yet piquant sour and funky tang. This indica-leaning hybrid is perfect for after a long work day or hike. Lemon Diesel is harvest-ready between 9-12 weeks, producing a taller plant with spanning purple and green leaves and rich, dense buds.
Overview of Lemon Diesel
Lemon Diesel is an indica dominant strain containing 70 percent indica and 30 percent sativa genetics. The nugs are conical and tight, with muted green accented by rusty pistils. The trichomes of Lemon Diesel often have a bit on an amber tint, which influences the overall color of the nug. These dense nugs are packed with resin and should be a little difficult to pull apart.
Lemon Diestel packs both a terpene rich flavor and a quality, potent high. Lemon Diesel is known to provide a euphoric, uplifting high balanced with relaxation. Lemon Diesel's aroma consists of just what you'd think: Strong, sweet, and tangy lemon bursts from a cracked nug. The exhilarating lemon scent is paired with sharp, acrid diesel aroma. Despite the lemon scent, limonene is not the most abundant terpene in this strain. Instead, beta-caryophyllene takes that title, contributing to the peppery fuel smell.
Lemon Diesel is quite a potent strain, with THC levels hovering around 18 percent. CBD content can range up to one percent, but almost never climbs higher. Thanks in part to its high THC content, Lemon Diesel won a coveted top ten spot at the Emerald Cup in 2010.
Potential Positive Effects of Lemon Diesel
Lemon Diesel is a supremely relaxing strain, good for solitary or social activities. This strain sets in slowly, with a building cerebral relaxation, which may transition into slight spaciness. As the high approaches its peak, a gentle euphoria envelops the mind. This strain should leave you happy, relaxed, and joyful. Increased free association can improve creative processes as well.
Potential Negative Effects of Lemon Diesel
The greatest danger of Lemon Diesel is couchlock. You may simply become so contented with your current surroundings that moving seems like a complete waste of energy!
The Lineage of Lemon Diesel
Lemon Diesel inherited its spectacular flavor, potency, and effect profile by crossing California Sour and Lost Coast OG. California Sour became known for its peppery citrus punch and acts as an excellent reliever, all while feeling euphoric and Lemon Diesel displays these qualities with gusto.
Lost Coast OG, a California original, is a mix between Chemdawg #4, Pakistani Kush, and Lemon Thai. Lost Coast OG is the basis of Lemon Diesel's earthy, sour diesel characteristics as well as the hyper-dense bud structure. Lost Coast OG is great for focus, producing an energizing, yet totally relaxed high where you feel 'in the zone'. Lemon Diesel borrows the best characteristics of both, producing potent and pungent aromas and effects.
Growing Lemon Diesel
Lemon Diesel can be grown indoors and outdoors, with a typical flowering time somewhere between seven to nine weeks. Harvests can typically begin between weeks nine and twelve. Most plants, when grown with care, can produce roughly 16 ounces of buds and usable trim.
