Super Lemon Haze Strain Information
Witnessing the expression on someone’s face after popping the lid off a jar of Super Lemon Haze never gets old: It’s that look of being punched in the nostrils by terpenes working overtime. This is just one of the many reasons sativa-dominant Super Lemon Haze is a two-time High Times Cannabis Cup winner.
Super Lemon Haze contains the terpene Limonene. Limonene is the chemical compound responsible for cannabis’s trademark citrus/lemon/orange flavor and aroma. The taste is sweet like Lemonheads candy, but not as sour as some might expect from the smell.
When grown properly, Super Lemon Haze is coated with a thick layer of glistening, clear and resinous trichomes that will gunk up your grinder’s kief catcher very quickly. Its light green buds and bright red pistils make it a very identifiable strain.
The sativa boost may be a bit too intense for those who are tightly wound, so those with chronic anxiety may want to stay clear of Super Lemon Haze when first starting out with cannabis use.
It’s no surprise that Super Lemon Haze is the creation of Green House Seeds, architects of the world’s finest landrace hybrids. Breeders at this legendary Dutch seed bank began with a female plant from their Super Silver Haze genetics, and bred her with a three-way cross of Haze, Skunk #1 and Northern Lights #5. (Super Silver Haze is often used in creating new varieties with more intense sativa traits, and has been showing up in many new varieties).
