The award-winning hybrid cannabis strain Super Lemon Haze derives its name from the zesty citrus aroma it exudes with skunky undertones, along with a taste that is reminiscent of candy. When ready for harvest, its buds are light green and extremely fuzzy with trichome crystals and golden hairs.
Its parents are the sativa hybrids Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze. It first blossomed in Amsterdam.
Super Lemon’s THC content is potent, averaging at 16% and reaching as high as 25%. It’s high leaves the consumer energetic and freely social, eliminating many forms of anxiety/stress as well as increasing appetite. Despite this strain’s ability to increase energy and creative, cerebral activity, some reviewers have warned that the first 15-20 minutes after smoking this strain can be foggy before mental clarity sets in. Others have noted that this strain is a “one-hitter-quitter” since the potency of the strain is so strong.
Paranoia is a common ill side-effect in novice consumers or those that consume too much for their body type along with bloodshot eyes and cotton mouth.
Lemon Haze won first place in the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2008 and 2009 as well as second place in 2010.
