Lemon Kush by Alien Genetics was created by the prolific breeders that are also responsible for conceiving the popular indica flower Alien Kush. The genetics and lineage of Lemon Kush is typically unknown and shrouded in much mystery. No one knows where the original Lemon Kush was created, but it is generally known that it was conceived as a cross between the tart Lemon Joy and relaxing, sedating Master Kush. What makes Lemon Kush by Alien Genetics unique and distinctive from other cuts of the strain are its DNA. Alien Genetics aimed to create a psychoactive flower that still retained a moderate full-bodied high. They ended up cross breeding the Ohio native Lemon G and dank landrace Afghan Kush to create a hybrid with a staggering THC concentration of 26%. Most cuts of this strain share a characteristic appearance and aroma that are both implicative of its Lemon G and Kush family genetics and DNA.
As 50/50 hybrid, Lemon Kush is a well-balanced strain that packs a couple of surprises. The effects of this strain are described as a creeper, and it can take upwards of 10 to 15 minutes before its effects fully kick in. Just like you’d expect from a hybrid flower, the high of this strain is described as being very cerebral. The higher 26% THC levels of Lemon Kush result in a strain that is extremely psychoactive. The characteristic euphoric rush and cerebral focus may inspire waves of creativity, happiness and a feeling of clarity. As uplifting as this strain is, it is also known for its mild body-buzz that mellows out the mental buzz towards the end of the high. Lemon Kush by Alien Genetics can be thoroughly enjoyed at any time of the day, and is especially great as an invigorating, uplifting day-time strain.
Appearance, Aroma and Taste
The bag appeal of Lemon Kush can be rated highly as the buds are made up of long cone-shaped buds that allow for lots of room for trichomes to grow. Fluorescent green leaves and buds are contrasted by a minimal amount of red hairs or pistils. Depending on the cut, the appearance of this hearty hybrid can lean towards its indica or sativa lineage. Break out a grinder for this one, as the thick and resinous layers of THC trichomes that coat the bud make it quite troublesome to break the buds apart.
Upon breaking the buds, you might come to a realization as to why or how this strain received its namesake. The characteristic aroma and taste of Lemon Kush by Alien Genetics are recognized by its powerful lemon scent and sweet, mellow earthy undertones. This strain produces a clean, white ash upon burning and on the inhale the taste of tart lemon-rinds is prominent, while on the exhale the sweet, earthy kush properties of Lemon Kush are more noticeable.
