Lemon Skunk is a slightly Sativa leaning hybrid that was created by DNA Genetics. This multiple award-winning variety is the result of crossing two separate Skunk #1 phenotypes that originate from the US and Holland. One of the Skunk #1 phenos, a tightly held citrus skunk cut originating from California and commonly grown in Las Vegas was brought over to Amsterdam by Lemon Man, who is said to have held the cut for over 20 years.
TASTE & SMELL –
This strain’s buds are known to deliver a strong scent of citrus blended with hints of skunk. Once blazed, her flavors are mainly citrusy and skunky with distinct notes of lemon on exhale.
Regarding effects, onset is mood-elevating and thought-provoking. Smokers are likely to experience a heightened state of alertness and an increased desire to socialize with others. Psychically, deep relaxation with body numbing sensations and couch-lock are common traits of Lemon Skunk.
MEDICAL USES –
Medically, Lemon Skunk’s anxiety-relieving effects can help improve mood in those dealing with either bipolar disorder or depression.
GROW INFO –
Lemon Skunk is considered a low maintenance strain. This robust hybrid can be grown both indoors and out with relative ease. She grows medium-height, has a high calyx to leaf ratio and produces frosty spear-shaped buds that have a lime green complexion and thick orange pistils. Indoors, this strain has a reasonably short flowering cycle of only seven to eight weeks and is ready for harvest by early October when grown outdoors in the Northern Hemisphere. Lemon Skunk is a great all-round strain that is a viable option for commercial production. Lastly, growers wishing to maintain discretion will need to counteract this strain’s strong odor.
