Lemon Skunk is a sativa-dominant hybrid that originated from two other strains: Skunk #1 and Citrus Skunk. Typically, Lemon Skunk is a lime green colour, with some variations ranging from light to dark green. The presence of bright orange hairs, with a covering of resinous trichomes, gives it a frosty, sparkling appearance. The origins of Lemon Skunk can be traced back to the early 1990s and, over time, the strain has been perfected by various breeders. Unlike some other strains that are heavy on the mind and body, Lemon Skunk offers a fresh and bright high, which is both mellow and calming.
As the name suggests, Lemon Skunk has a tart citrusy lemon aroma, with hints of sweet and spicy notes. Upon smoking, the dominant flavour is lemon, which is quite refreshing. Lemon Skunk leaves an aftertaste that is both slightly sweet and sour, one of the reasons it is favoured. The high from Lemon Skunk is also something to behold. The effects are euphoric and uplifting, making it the ideal strain to boost your energy levels during the day. Unlike some sativas, Lemon Skunk isn’t aggressive or overpowering, but rather provides a balanced high.
