Lemon Kush love

Lemon Kush is a well-balanced hybrid with a potent amount of THC (about 26% THC content). The company known as, Alien Genetics, created their version of Lemon Kush by mixing it with an Afghani Kush and Lemon G. Generally, most companies create Lemon Kush by mixing a Kush with a Lemon strain. And then mixed with an Afghan or South American strain that is mixed with Lemon G or Master Kush.

Although the nugs grow small, don’t let that fool you. These densely compact nugs constantly tests between 15% and 26% THC. These results make Lemon Kush a strong psychoactive herb.

It has its own unique traits that makes it distinguishable from the rest of the strains. This phenotype has a certain look, smell, taste and feel that is so unique a person can identify this strain blindfolded. This cannabis strain is a flavorful hybrid that is known for its cerebral effects and light body high.

Growing Lemon flavored Kush

Lemon Kush is an easy to grow strain. It doesn’t require too much attention. This phenotype can be grown indoors and outdoors, but the best results come from growing this strain outdoors. It also enjoys persistently warm climates like a Mediterranean climate.

When growing indoors, plants will grow 4 and 6 feet tall under high-watt bulbs. It’ll do better in organic soil and nutrient supplements like humic acid, vitamin B and several enzymes.

After 8 to 10 weeks these plants will be ready for harvest by late September and mid-October when grown outdoors. On average, expect medium yields that produce light-green buds that are coated with heavy amounts of trichomes.


Not many people don’t know this, but Lemon Kush is a creeper weed. It takes about 5 to 10 minutes for the high to sink in. This strain is a tasty treat that everyone can enjoy. Recreational, medical, newbies and veteran smokers report feeling relaxed, happy, uplifted, euphoric and energetic. This herb makes consumers feel focused, creative and have a clear mind that helps people enjoy music and art.

This strain has other benefits that provide more than feel good emotions. Consumers appreciate the relief from stress, depression, pain, fatigue and nausea that this strain provides. Medical users like this strain because it helps them fight more severe symptoms of loss of appetite, depression and anxiety.

This is not a couch-locking or sleep causing herb. It is a great strain to partake of during the day because it allows people to accomplish tasks and chores. However, Lemon Kush does cause a great body buzz that reduces the feelings of anxiety and paranoia.


Like with all strains of cannabis, there are a few negatives associated with Lemon Kush. Because not everyone realizes that Lemon Kush is a creeper weed, they’ll end up ruining their high. People will take several hits and wonder if this strain is going to get them high.

After 5 to 10 minutes, all that smoking will catch up to them and that when the paranoia and dizziness issues start to ensue. The best way to smoke this strain is to take a few puffs then put the pipe down. Wait sometime between 5 to 10 minutes and then try and smoke some more until desired high is achieved.

Other negative symptoms include dry mouth and dry eyes. These symptoms are simple to combat. The cure for dry eyes is clear eyes for the pie eyed. Dry mouth is easy to cure by having a nice cool glass of water nearby. Or have your favorite beverage nearby.

Tastes and Smells

The fragrance is so strong that its scent fills the air with mouthwatering sensations that linger in the air. When breaking apart one of these tight nugs, it releases a strong pleasant lemon scent. On inhale, the smoke tends to be harsh and coughing is a common issue. On exhale, the taste is citrusy with a chemically aftertaste.

When the stresses of life have you feeling sour, have a toke or two of Lemon Kush. “Wonderful lemon and citrus flavor. Beautiful thick buds. Nice cerebral effects with light body high. Very good for an afternoon medicine. I would avoid this at night as the sativa effects can keep you awake.” Said fan of lemon kush, thecannabisdoc.

The D-Limonene is a terpene found in Lemon Kush that is responsible for its lemon scent. This terpene is found naturally in nature and has medicinal values. It’s a great anti-inflammatory and is said to have cancer-fighting capabilities.
