Definition - What does Lemon Kush mean?
Lemon Kush is a 50/50 hybrid of sativa and indica, with a relatively high THC percentage ranging between 15% and 26%. Note that this strain was bred from Lemon G and Afghani Kush, and is noted for its pronounced lemon flavor and aroma, thanks to the high concentrations of the terpene limonene. While most suppliers adhere to the aforementioned definition, some suppliers actually use a cross between Master Kush and Lemon Joy.
Hydrolife explains Lemon Kush
Lemon Kush is a hybrid strain enjoyed primarily for its medical benefits, powerful flavor and heavy lemon aroma. A 50/50 blend of indica and sativa, Lemon Kush was created by breeding Lemon G with Afghani Kush (some breeders use Master Kush and Lemon Joy). The Lemon Kush strain can be identified by its pale green buds covered in white frosting.
Lemon Kush is known for its uplifting mental effects, and its ability to fuel creativity. The most common medical uses for Lemon Kush include: alleviating depression and anxiety, and improving appetite. The strain is fast acting and the effects are both profound and prolonged, which can sometimes catch first-time users by surprise.
Side-effects are known to accompany long-term use of Lemon Kush include: extreme dry mouth, dry eyes, paranoia and dizziness. It has also been reported to cause headaches if too much is consumed or it is used too frequently.
Note that d-limonene, which gives this strain its citrus flavor, is associated with antibacterial action, as well as anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties.
