Lemon Kush Hybrid Cannabis strains
The general consensus surrounding Lemon Kush is that is a cross between Master Kush and Lemon Joy. However, breeder specific variations exist. Alien Genetics, for example, explains their Lemon Kush as a hybrid between Lemon G, a prized strain from Ohio, and an Afghan Kush. The genetics are the only area of dispute as everyone will agree that the sweet flavors of lemon and citrus mix exceptionally well with the earthy kush undertones. The light green buds are covered in a white frosting of trichomes and provide uplifting and creative effects. Lemon Kush is the perfect solution for when the stresses of life have you feeling sour.
Lemon Kush Experience
A few different strains go by the name Lemon Kush, including the popular Lemon Kush Headband. The most famous is a mix of Master Kush and Lemon Joy. However, another hybrid may include mixes of Afghan Kush and Lemon G. Both of these versions are Indica-dominant, but they provide ample Sativa effects. Expect a fairly balanced mix of a heavy-bodied physical high with a calm, elevated mood.
There is at least one variety of this strain that has Sativa-dominance, but the exact lineage is a mystery. You’re more likely to run into the Indica hybrids listed above. Though the common Lemon Kush strains may be Indica-dominant, don’t expect significant couch-lock from this strain. This variety creates a relaxed, easygoing vibe that’s perfect for a slow afternoon.
Medical Benefits of Lemon Kush
Heady, lemon aroma and flavors aside, medical marijuana patients cherish this strain for the relief it offers from a number of ailments and conditions.
- Medical consumers often find that this strain eases headaches and knocks stress out of the park
- Those with depression and anxiety tend to like this mellow hybrid, though you may experience a little paranoia if you consume too much
- Both of the most common Lemon Kush varieties have a fairly high THC content. The Master Kush variety has even reached levels over 20%. Though well-balanced, this strain can be quite potent — novice marijuana consumers should be aware when consuming in large amounts
