Super Lemon Haze
Another High Times Cannabis Cup winner, Super Lemon Haze is a trending strain that is gaining huge popularity in recent years. The genetics of this strain is quite complicated but in short, Arjan of Green House Seeds used a combination of four different strains, Haze, Skunk #1, Northern Lights #5, and Lemon Skunk, to breed the strain we know today. Super Lemon Haze is a sativa-dominant strain that boasts both high THC content and an amazing terpene profile, which can not be said for many other strains. It is a perfect strain for those looking for a heavy smoke as well as a tasteful one.
Being a sativa-dominant strain (80/20 ratio), users should expect strong sativa effects with mild relaxation due to the presence of indica genetics. The effects of smoking will take some time to kick in fully but once it does, you will realize just how stoned you are. Users may find themselves smiling for no reason as happiness melts away any stress and worries they have. An explosion of energy will overtake any fatigue and will get you buzzy and ready to go. Many users also report bouts of creativity and focus. Super Lemon Haze also relaxes the user but definitely does not cause laziness or a couch-locking effect. Together with a euphoric buzz that melts fatigue and stress, it is a perfect strain for wake-n-bakes and early day smoking. Note that this strain has a high THC content with an average of 25% (beginners beware!).
This strain is used to treat medical conditions such as:
- Loss of appetite
- Acute pain
