For anyone who is a seasoned weed enthusiast, the Lemon Haze strain comes up in many conversations in cannabis circles and forums all over the globe. With its rich/aromatic smell, radiating tones of juicy lemon, and amped-up THC content, it is no wonder why people all over the world gravitate toward this particular strain.
What is Lemon Haze?
Lemon Haze is a cleverly crossed hybrid type of cannabis derived from the Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk strains. With its 70:30 Sativa to Indica ratio, it’s one of the most potent Sativa dominant blends on the market today. Not only does it have a sweet aftertaste of citrus, but it also garners a yellow/green color which is similar to a lemon growing on a tree. It touts a 17%-22% THC and 0.38% CBD content.
Its psychoactive profile is uplifting and invigorating when consumed moderately; however, it can mellow you out if used in more significant amounts. Given that you can utilize both types of effects from one beautifully simplistic strain, it becomes even more popular as it’s a marijuana strain to meet many’s needs.
Why Canadians Love Lemon Haze
In Canada, Lemon Haze has gained massive popularity after winning not 1 but 2 Cannabis Cup awards (in 2008 and 2009). With the pandemic in play the past year and a half, Lemon Haze and cannabis, in general, have seen a massive uptick in usage. Imagine being snowed in for days on end during the Canadian winter and enjoying some Lemon Haze in the comforts of your home. This strain could help you get some creative work done, fuel a high-powered workout or even help you get into some pre-Spring cleaning. If you need to bring yourself back to earth, a few more hits of it can bring you right back to a relaxed and euphoric state.
