Lemon Haze is the lovechild of two popular sweet-tasting, Sativa-dominant cannabis strains: Lemon Skunk and Silver Haze. This strain has a very distinctive smell and flavor and packs a real psychoactive punch.
Lemon Haze is loved by pot smokers everywhere for both its pungent lemony scent and its ability to make you feel happy, uplifted, and euphoric. We’ll take a close look at this strain so you can learn more about it before you try it for yourself.
What Lemon Haze Looks Like?
The buds of Lemon Haze are impressive with a distinct shape and texture. They’re medium to large in size and are oval-shaped spheres or chunks. Even though the leaves of this strain are packed quite densely, the buds appear fluffy and somewhat ragged.
This strain’s fluffy leaves are a light shade of green with nice-looking pistils that are bright orange. Orange-colored trichomes are all over these buds, making them appear as though they’re glowing. The appearance of the trichomes also indicates that this strain is going to be interesting and fun to smoke as it’s always a good sign to see orange-colored strands or ‘hairs’ on any cannabis buds.
Does Lemon Haze Smell Like Lemons?
Lemon Haze definitely has a distinct and zesty citrus smell that reminds you of freshly peeled lemons. It’s a tangy lemon smell with a few spicy undertones with earthy aromas. Surprisingly, Lemon Haze has very little of the acrid smell that’s very characteristic of its Lemon Skunk parent.
When smoked, this strain gives off a lemony smell that lingers in the air long after the bong or joint is put out. It’s a pleasant aroma that’s not off-putting. Lemon Haze gets its lemony smell from the chemical compounds called terpenes that the flower uses to attract pollinators.
How this Strain Tastes?
Not surprisingly, Lemon Haze tastes tart and sweet like a lemon. However, unlike when you eat a lemon, you won’t pucker up and be shocked by the intense flavor. The Lemon Haze cannabis strain does not taste sharp. Instead, it tastes a little sweet, zesty, and citrusy kind of like lemonhead candy. It’s a very nice tasting strain that most people say they love.
Is Lemon Haze a Sativa or Indica?
Being a cross between Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk, Lemon Haze is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with a 70/30 Sativa/Indica ratio. Considering its heritage, it should come as no surprise that this Sativa-dominant strain is a heavy-hitter when it comes to getting you high. This is why this strain may not be the best choice for a new smoker who isn’t used to smoking a hard-hitting strain.
The THC Content of Lemon Haze
As a Sativa-heavy strain that packs a powerful punch, it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that Lemon Haze has a relatively high THC content of 21% on average. This level of TCH should be enough to make the most experienced smokers very happy and to provide the novices with a smoking session to remember the first time they smoke Lemon Haze.
What’s the Buzz Like?
Of course, you wouldn’t be reading this review of Lemon Haze if you weren’t interested in the effects you get when you smoke this strain. Well now comes the good part! Lemon Haze provides you with an uplifting, euphoric high that’s very pleasant. Shortly after taking a bong or joint hit, you’ll start feeling a change in your mood wherein you feel happy and relaxed. It’s not an overpowering feeling in the beginning but within a few minutes, you’ll get a nice rush of euphoria that may cause you to get ‘the giggles’.
Lemon Haze is said to offer a ‘creeping high’ that kind of sneaks up on you. This is why it will take several minutes before you feel this strain’s full effects. At the start of your high, you may notice that certain sights or sounds are distorted a bit. Then comes the stimulating effects where you’ll feel like having great conversations with others and sharing some good laughs with those you’re smoking with.
If you like to smoke weed that motivates you to get up and do things like clean the house or run errands, Lemon Haze is a good motivator! You’ll get a strong body stone from this weed that becomes more pronounced as the high progresses. This combination of mental and physical effects can be a great way to get into some activities that involve both your body and mind like working out or enjoying sex.
As you smoke more Lemon Haze, you’ll become more spacey and disconnected from your surroundings. You can easily find yourself lost in your thoughts where you totally block out what’s happening around you. This is when you’ll feel like melting into your couch and letting your mind wander.
Medical Uses for Lemon Haze
Lemon Haze is often used by people with mild to moderate stress and depression. Because this strain can make you more focused, it’s a good strain for people with attention deficit disorders to use so they can improve their concentration levels to accomplish tasks.
This strain is quite effective at treating mild to moderate depression because it provides an uplighting high that makes you feel happy and carefree. It’s also a strain that’s known to help with nausea. Its early-onset calming effect helps relax the body to relieve the unsettling feelings of nausea and stomach upset. Many people report that Lemon Haze helps them find relief from headaches and migraine pain.
Growing Lemon Haze
There are Lemon Haze seeds for sale by several notable seed banks. Once you get some seeds, you can grow this strain indoors or out. However, if you’re thinking of growing it outdoors, be sure your climate is semi-humid with daytime temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Otherwise, plan on growing this strain indoors.
When you grow Lemon Haze indoors, you’ll have to trim back and prune the branches early in the vegetative stage so the plant doesn’t get too tall. This strain flowers in 8 to 9 weeks when you grow it indoors. It’s not a high-yielding plant so don’t expect to get a big load of smokeable weed. Lemon Haze offers a modest yield of about 1.4 to 1.6 ounces of flower per square foot of plant.
The Lemon Haze cannabis strain is a lovely Sativa-dominant strain with a popularity that’s very well deserved. One of its greatest strengths is that it gives you a boost of energy like you’d get from drinking a strong cup of coffee, only without the nervousness that caffeine brings on.
This powerful Sativa is not for the faint-hearted. It’s the ultimate ‘happy smoke’ due to the pure and positive vibes it brings you when you light it up in your bong or joint. It’s a strain we strongly recommend if you’re confident you can handle an intense high that gradually sneaks up on you.
