Strain Review: Super Lemon Haze
Saturdays rituals have become wake up, pick a strain, roll up a joint and review it. This is a routine that I could absolutely get used to! This week’s strain is Super Lemon Haze and it was picked up at Ripe Dispensary in Pueblo Colorado. However, the flower was grown from Verde Natural Gardens and can also be found at their retail shop in Boulder.
Chris was kind enough to roll this weeks joint up for me even though I have been trying to practice rolling up myself. I rolled the first version, but he told me that the joint wouldn’t burn evenly while smoking it! I saved the joint to smoke with @CannaBananaaa on the way up to our photo shoot at StickyFingerzDenver. This wouldn’t be an accurate strain review if I didn’t mention the error in the testing - Chris twaxed the joint (lightly) forgetting that it was for a strain review! Nothing affected the taste of the super lemon haze, but for research purposes I feel I must cite it.
Of course, before sparking the joint I did some research on the strain! The lineage of Super Lemon Haze is Lemon Skunk crossed with Super Silver Haze which makes it a very sativa dominant strain. The genetics are credited to Green House Seeds and is known as a strain that works fast as well as lasting a long period of time. Its described by leafly to have a “tart and sweet like lemon heads candy” taste, but it was not suggested for those who are naturally high strung. Although I suffer from anxiety daily I have found a lot of sativa strains to be helpful with my specific case!
Just from dry pulling on the joint I could taste the pine. Although I’m aware that piney taste comes from the lemon it still reminds me of the floor cleaner Pine-sol. Lighting the paper was easy, and it burned very evenly (thank you Chris :p ). As the flower burned we discussed how smooth the flower was to smoke and that there was not a trace of harshness. I found that although the lemon came through strongly I could still taste the haze that comes with it. Personally, I couldn’t describe the haze taste for my own pallet, but Chris is very vocal that hazes taste like cat piss to him. The joint burned very slowly, and you could still taste the lemon perfectly at the end of the joint. The after affects were mellow but very energetic.
The active buzz that came with this strain lasted until almost midway through the afternoon! The joint gave me the energy and motivation that I needed to go and take pictures for hours on end. I personally did not feel that it was a particularly racey strain, however if you do suffer from severe anxiety I wouldn’t recommend this strain for yourself or anxious days! Overall though I did enjoy this strain and how it was grown from Verde Natural Gardens
I do have to add that every strain I have tried from Verde Natural has been some amazing quality flower. If you are ever in a dispensary that sells Verde flower, or have the chance to visit their dispensary – do it! You will not be disappointed by the quality of flowers or the high that comes with them!
