When it comes to flavour, bouquet, and strength, there are few strains which can touch Green House Seed Company’s excellent Super Lemon Haze. This strain won first prize in both the 2008 and 2009 High Times Cannabis Cup competition. GHS describe this strain as:
The Super Lemon Haze has won the 2008 High Times Cannabis Cup with a landslide of votes. Between the many reasons: its incredibly intense lemony flavour, with a strong haze background. It’s a sharp and intense taste, which reminds of lemon, lime and pink grapefruit, followed by a very earthy and musky haze aftertaste, with traces of incense and black pepper. The effect is very balanced; it starts with a quick indica-hit feeling that softly moves to a very strong high, with a social and creative side. The Super Lemon Haze is a very smooth compromise between the great qualities of its parents. It has 9-10 weeks flowering time, and a very typical Christmas tree shape. Plants tend to grow quite tall, but the internodes are not too far apart, and allow easy topping. The leaves are very sativa-like, while bud formation comes dense and has a high calyx-to-leaf ratio. The Super Lemon Haze is very effective both indoors and outdoors, and responds very well to high-EC hydro systems as well as organic soil setups. When cultivated in soil, the spectrum of terpens is more developed and gives an extra lemony flavour. The THC is high at over 22%, ensuring a very psychedelic experience to even the most experienced smokers.
This strain was created by crossing Super Silver Haze with Lemon Skunk.
THC = 22.9%
CBD = 0.21%
CBN = 1.15%
This strain has one of the most floral, lemony tastes imaginable. From the moment you open the jar until you exhale the smoke, it’s unmistakable. One of the true classic flavours. There’s something especially tasty about the lemon phenotype in cannabis plants, and SLH is the standard-bearer as far as I’m concerned. After the sweetness of the lemon dissipates across the front of the tongue, the back of your throat is left with a peppery, skunky aftertaste, just in case you’d forgotten that this is some serious weed.
- mood enhancing
- slightly edgy/uneasy due to extremely low CBD levels
If you’re looking for an uplifting sativa buzz with amazing flavour, this is the strain for you. Recommended for daytime or social use. If you like the effect but want a more balanced high, with a fair amount of CBD, I’d recommend going for an indica variety, or something which offers a hybrid of the two.
