Lemon Kush is a balanced hybrid strain with a 50:50 sativa/indica ratio and around 26 percent THC content. It is a blend of Afghani Kush and Lemon G with a potent lemon flavor. Its taste can be credited to the high amounts of terpene Limonene.

What is a strain?

Most cannabis strains are considered a pure or hybrid genetic variation of the plant Genus Cannabis. There are three main species: Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis.

Ruderalis is not as popularly known as the others; however, it is a derivative of cannabis with the lowest THC levels.

Although they are popular among the cannabis community, hybrids are not considered a species as they are made of Sativa and Indica, with typically one or the other dominating the gene pool.

For marketing and medical marijuana purposes, cultivators will develop a cannabis strain to highlight specific desired characteristics, such as:

  • Color

  • Density

  • Flavor profile

  • Aroma

  • Medicinal benefits

  • Psychoactive effects

  • Cannabinoid percentages

  • THC vs. CBD content

Those within the cannabis community report nearly eight hundred unique weed strains worldwide, but that number has increased steadily.

It's important to remember that they all originated from landrace strains imported at some point in history.

Different strains are created yearly as botanists experiment with crossing classic marijuana strains with hybrids to change their genetic qualities.

Growing Lemon Kush buds

Outdoor grown Lemon Kush seems to flourish better than indoor grown, and using organic soil can increase the citrus taste of the buds. Cultivating this strain indoors can produce up to 18 ounces per square meter, and grown outdoors will provide a high yield of approximately 35 ounces per plant. It is crucial to closely monitor and regulate your plant's growing environment as this strain grows to get the highest yield possible.

Flowering Time

Lemon Kush strain's flowering time has an average of nine to ten weeks indoors to reach the prime age and will be ready for harvest outdoors around late October.

Cannabis Sativa

Sativa cannabis seeds do well in warmer regions of the Earth and can thrive with high humidity levels. The typical locations where Sativa strains are grown are Central America, South America, and Southeast Asia. Sativa is tall and slender with thin, light green leaves. 

Many people report that smoking Sativa makes them feel energized, creative and focused. These psychological effects make Sativa strains best for daytime use because using them at night may cause insomnia due to the higher THC levels. 

There are many reasons people use Sativa cannabis strains, including: 
  • Easing depression symptoms

  • Headache and Pain relief 

  • Decreasing Nausea

  • Fighting appetite loss

  • Better Focus

  • Head High over Body High

Cannabis Indica

Cannabis Indica is commonly found growing in the dryer climates of the Middle East. They are short and bushy with large, dark green leaves. The buds tend to be much denser in Indica versus Sativa. Many popular Indica strains have higher CBD content than Sativa.

Most Indica weed contains an almost even amount of CBD and THC levels. Since Pure Indica strains tend to be relaxing, they're best for nighttime use due to the intense body high.  

Common Effects

  • Relieving intense body and muscle pain

  • Reducing nausea and increasing appetite

  • Easing insomnia and promoting healthy sleep

  • Reducing anxiety symptoms
