A fairly tall and good-producing plant, Lemon Skunk is exactly what the name sounds like — a heavily citrus-tinged Skunk variety with a potent and relaxing effect. It has the typical Skunk lime green buds and bright orange pistils, producing frosty, dense, spear-shaped colas.
Varies — some are two Skunks crossed, while others are Skunk x Citral
One of the Skunk strains involved in Lemon Skunk (for both companies) came from Las Vegas, Nevada and eventually made its way in some form or another to Amsterdam, where it became part of the breeding projects that produced the final strain. Lemon Skunk also ended up in Green House Seeds' two-time Cannabis Cup Winner Super Lemon Haze.
Slightly sweet and mentholated lemon (many say "Lemon Pledge"), with a skunky backdrop.
Lightly sweet citrus with a floral element.
Though it's sativa-dominant, this is a rather relaxing strain that puts the mind and body at ease. If let go long it can be a little hazy mentally, but normally it's rather functional, though mostly in more sedentary activities, especially after the first hour or so when it takes a more indica turn. It comes with strong eye/face pressure fluctuations, aids with appetite, and helps with general relaxation, both mentally and physically.
Lemon Skunk is a tall and fairly branchy plant whose side shoots can rival the cola in overall size and girth at times. It responds fairly well to training and SCROG but most will yield pretty well without it. Some heavy sativa plants will need to be staked, as flowering stretch can cause them to triple or quadruple in height. It's known for having few leaves and being very easy to manicure as well.
