what's in a strain

The Strain:

Often debated and differing from breeder to breeder, the origins of Lemon Kush aren’t exactly known. Some say Alien Genetics claim to have created this strain by crossing Lemon G and Afghan Kush. Others say this is a product of Master Kush and Lemon Joy. While the genetics may be debated, the general consensus is that the sweet flavors of lemon and citrus mix exceedingly well with its earthy-kush undertones. This potent but well-balanced hybrid is sure to not only uplift and motivate artistic individuals, but also those looking to add some allure to day.


The Chemistry:

Lemon Kush is smaller than the average bud but is packed dense and tight, making it difficult to break apart without a grinder. A heavy coating of crystal-like trichomes make the leaves appear light green, pale-orange pistils blend sporadically throughout this bud. The first aroma you may notice is of course, citrusy-sweet lemon. When breaking apart this bud, there are underlying hints of earth and musk. When exploring through Connect, you can see Lemon Kush has beta-myrcene, delta-limonene and both alpha and beta pinene as the top terpenes. The flavor is also tangy and sweet with notes of spice. However, unlike many other lemon cannabis strains, this type does not have any elements of diesel or ammonia, which is part of what makes this strain have such a charming appeal.


Lemon Kush is a tasty and effective strain providing cerebral focus and free-flowing creativity. Whether you’re appreciating music, expressing your artistic endeavors, or doing some spring cleaning, this energizing and motivational strain is perfect for just about anyone. Pro-tip: This unique strain is a good one to share during social settings. Mood altering, free-flowing creativity without couchlock can create an exceptional conversation starter. 

*Every strain creates different effects for each user.
