Today, Super Lemon Haze is now one of the most popular strains, especially on the West Coast of the U.S. and in British Columbia, and is widely available nearly everywhere else. At 80% sativa and 20% indica, the Super Lemon Haze cannabis strain is most definitely classic sativa that delivers a “head high,” rather than the full-body effects normally associated with indica.
While strains may differ from producer to producer, with nuanced differences and varying percentages of cannabinoids and terpenes, Super Lemon Haze is a stable, consistent strain that provides reliable results.
Super Lemon Haze Genetics
Created by Arjan of Green House Seeds, Super Lemon Haze is a hybrid blend of Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze. Arjan began by breeding a female of the highly stable and sought-after Super Silver Haze genetics with Haze, Northern Lights #5 and Skunk #1. Next, the breeder crossed the byproduct with Lemon Skunk to create a product that stands on its own. The strain’s Super Silver Haze parent gives it its high CBN count
Super Lemon Haze Effects: What to Expect
You can expect award-winning flavor, aroma and taste with Super Lemon Haze. In 2008 and 2009, Super Lemon Haze won first prize in the High Times Cannabis Cup. The next year, this zesty bud grabbed the top spot of the IC420 Growers Cup. The awards kept coming, with Super Lemon Haze taking home the trophy at the 2014 Seattle Cannabis Cup for the Medical Sativa category.
The THC count of Super Lemon Haze can reach as high as 25 percent, so it is definitely going to pack a punch for even the most seasoned users. Novice smokers may experience anxiety and paranoia when consuming Super Lemon Haze in large quantities, so caution for newbies is advised.
Super Lemon Haze Strain Appearance
Heavy on the kief and color, Super Lemon Haze is as pretty to look at as it is pleasant to smoke. The speckled light green-and-brown flowers have a dab of orangey-yellow color to them. Predominantly crystalline, each flower features a thick layer of glistening, clear, and resinous trichomes.
The layer of dense trichomes produces a powerful mixture of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that give Super Lemon Haze its characteristic flavor and effects. The buds are moderately tight, so they break apart well and smoke evenly.
Super Lemon Haze Strain Aroma & Flavor Profile
The terpenes in Lemon Skunk add a zesty lemon kick and a taste that ranges from slightly sweet to extremely sweet. The flavor is more like artificial lemon than it is real lemon, so you can expect it to taste more like a Lemon Head candy than the real fruit.
Why Choose the Super Lemon Haze Strain?
Super Lemon Haze is sativa-dominant, which means it provides peppy, energetic effects that keep you buzzing all day long. Despite being relatively low in CBD, this strain is great for alleviating daytime fatigue and stress. It may not be the best for medicinal purposes, as it is lower in cannabinoids than it is in THC.
