Super Lemon Haze
Type: 80:20 sativa:indica
Creators: Arjan from Green House Seeds
THC Content: 20-25%
Appearance: Super Lemon Haze almost looks lemony, as its leaves are of a bright, neon-like lemonish green color, made all-the-more shiny by the thick trichome coating that seems especially crystalline.
Aroma and Taste: The aroma is pungent, somewhat skunky, and distinctively citrusy and sweet. The taste is reminiscent of a lemon tart with earthy undertones.
Trivia: Two-time champion of the High Times Cannabis Cup (2008 and 2009); winner of 2nd place for the Indoor Hydro Cup at the Spannabis 2011 Champions Cup; earned its creators the 1st place for sativa breeders at the IC420 Growers Cup for Sativa Breeders.
Regular lemon is known for its invigorating properties, and Super Lemon Haze certainly carries this reputation not just into the cannabis world, but the sativa world in particular, in which describing a strain as invigorating is like describing a chess player as intelligent.
This strain is quite similar in many ways to Green Crack due to their common ancestor in Skunk #1, but out of the two, Super Lemon Haze is the more sativa one, being one of the most famous and beloved sativa-dominant names in the world.
Consuming Super Lemon Haze feels like opening a valve into your mind that lets in a powerful stream of creativity, imagination, introspection, euphoria, and all-around joy to be alive. It’s like becoming a kid again, but with the maturity to appreciate the gift of this wondrous, care-free prism and soak up the moment on a deeper, more cerebral level. This mental buzz, coupled with the surge of purely physical energy that actually marks the beginning of the experience, make Super Lemon Haze the perfect hiking companion. However, it will definitely keep you good company indoors, too.
While very potent and potentially overwhelming for some naturally high-strung and/or rookie users, many users find the high clear-headed, helping them focus on anything from creative work to cleaning their house.
Super Lemon Haze is great for people with busy, hectic lifestyles who need to shake off burnout and/or overwork symptoms like fatigue, stress, and loss of drive and passion for both work and life. Likewise, people, stuck in a rut or the quicksand of lethargy, might find this strain the push they need.
Again, similarly to Green Crack, Super Lemon Haze’s medicinal properties are more mental than physical, most beneficial to people with mental disorders like depression and anxiety, as long as they DON’T overconsume and veer into paranoia and recursive thought patterns.
Physically-wise, again like Green Crack, this strain can go a long way toward alleviating some side effects of different medications and chemotherapy like fatigue and loss of appetite, as Super Lemon Haze’s munchies are as strong as is its energy boost. With that being said, its higher THC count does provide stronger and direct analgesic effects rather than predominantly a distraction from physical pain through mental stimulation, as is mostly the case with Green Crack.
