Overview of Lemon Lush

Lemon Kush is a sativa-leaning hybrid known for its intense citrus flavor that is underscored by mellow, earthy tones. True cannabis connoisseurs can identify a Lemon Kush strain by its complex flavor profile that balances notes of sweetness and fruit.

Lemon Kush demonstrates its indica heritage once combusted as well. When smoked, the strain will cultivate a slightly harsh and noticeable dank flavor that can induce a coughing fit. However, a pleasant aftertaste should linger in the mouth with notes of tangy fruit.

Potential Positive Effects

Lemon Kush fosters a particularly mellow and relieving high that's ideal for combating the symptoms of stress. The Master Kush influence is clearly demonstrated through Lemon Kush with its relaxing high and lift in mood. The strong cerebral effects have helped Lemon Kush become a popular strain to utilize during creative or artistic activities. The indica nature of the strain will bring on a strong, relaxing body high.

Potential Medical Effects

The high often lands first in the head and foster a shared sense of cerebral energy and focus which may aid ADD/ ADHD symptoms, depression, or PTSD. Lemon Kush can also induce creativity and a sense of euphoria, while also being sedating. Medical patients may use Lemon Kush for pain as well.

Potential Negative Effects

A few users have reported overwhelming feelings of fatigue or intense feelings of paranoia, as well as dry mouth and dry eyes.

Lineage of Lemon Kush

Cannabis testing labs that examined Lemon Kush found the strain to be comprised of 15% - 26% THC. The potency of Lemon Kush, particularly in regards to its psychoactive effects, varies with every plant. The consensus among the cannabis community is that Lemon Kush is a cross between Master Kush and Lemon Joy.

However, different breeders like Alien Genetics often grow their own versions of the strain with varying genetic mixtures. The Alien Genetics version, however, claims to have cultivated a successful Lemon Kush strain by mixing Lemon G - the pride of Ohio - and Afghan Kush.

Growing Lemon Kush

Lemon Kush plants should be packed with small, tight, and dense nugget structures. Lemon Kush nugs are often a more pale green that is further lightened by the buds' crystal coating of trichomes. Consequently, the buds tend to be sticky and leave resin on the hand. The indica genetics are also discernible in the smaller bud structure.

Lemon Kush plants often produce medium yields of flower. The plant can also cultivate well outdoors in temperate Mediterranean-style climates. Lemon Kush plants are shorter, stockier, and structured like other, shorter indica plants. Outdoor plants will be ready to harvest in late September to mid-October.

Lemon Kush is easy to grow and commonly will produce 3-6 ounces per plant. Often, Lemon Kush takes 8-10 weeks till harvest and can be grown indoors or out.

Up in Canada, users are able to easily find Lemon Kush in Alberta, British Columbia, and Quebec.
