Super Lemon Skunk
Hybrid -50% Sativa /50% IndicaTHC: 20%, CBD: 1%
THC levels are high in this indica strain, topping 21% in some tests. CBD contents, meanwhile, are much lower, less than 1%. It’s not clear where this indica-dominant strain came from, or what its parents were, or even how much of it is indica and how much sativa. But the effects follow the indica genes, producing a spacey, sleepy effect that induces deep relaxation. Super Lemon Skunk is an effective medical choice for patients who want to relieve chronic pain and alleviate insomnia. It’s less effective for patients who need CBD treatment, including those with seizure disorders. This strain has a sweet lemony flavor, with a similar smell. The real selling point of Super Lemon Skunk, though, is its potency, with a high that can last as long as four hours. Side effects are largely unknown, though it’s a safe bet that dry mouth is among them. This strain is sold in at least one Colorado medical marijuana dispensary, but it could be difficult to find in other parts of the country. It’s probably more common on the medical market than the black market.
Super Lemon Skunk
Looks: Super Lemon Skunk is so covered in trichomes that the leaves are barely visible. It looks like it was in the freezer and accumulated a considerable amount of frost over everything. The pistols are a bit stubby and seem to be stuck inside clumps of trichomes, in some instances.
Smell: Very sweet and lemony, as you would expect from the name. The scent is very similar to something like a Golden Goat or Jack Flash, where it has that lemony smell, but it lacks the soapy tones that those strains have.
Taste: Sweet. Lemon. This bud tastes like a lemon drop, when I inhale via my vaporizer. It has almost no sour undertones, which was kind of unexpected for a lemony bud. There is almost no overly heavy feeling in your lungs like a Golden Goat can get at times, this is more light and airy feeling.
Effects: This is a great bud to just zone out with some music on. Worked wonderfully on my stomach pains, although it could do a bit better on the nausea. Also, it definitely helps me wind down to sleep. Thoughts are pretty disjointed, and I seem to be easily distracted, so it definitely provides that cloudy kind of dreamy feeling.
Potency: This one lasted 4-6 hours, so it was pretty potent. I’d have to give this one a 9 out of 10 for potency.
Good Strain For: Great night time bud.
