The offspring of Las Vegas Lemon Skunk and OG #18, Lemon OG is considered a symmetrical split of sativa and indica – however, like most OG Kush hybrids, its effects are adaptable and can swing with your mood.
The strain’s SFV OG Kush and Skunk #1 genetics produce a high that mirrors the feel of an immediate member of the OG Kush family. It offers a gentle boost in energy which eventually burns off, revealing Lemon OG’s calming indica traits.
Like the sharp front end of fresh-squeezed lemonade, the high begins as task-oriented and void of fatigue. After a few hours, the effects stray into an indica stratosphere – all excess energy dissipating to a calm and quiet hum.
Lemon OG can be bent if a few different directions. Focused productivity is within close reach, as is creative free association. This makes it a useful tool for musicians and other artists. A perfectly functional strain, it’s geared toward relaxation and creativity opposed to disciplined focus.
Patients have reported Lemon OG beneficial in relieving symptoms of conditions such as chronic pain, inflammation, insomnia, appetite loss, stress, and depression.
The dense, conical buds have a form closely resembling its OG #18 parent, while its light green coloration, muted amber pistils, and trichome saturation are reminiscent of its Las Vegas Lemon Skunk side.
Packed with a concentrated sour lemon and earthy fragrance on the surface, its when grind it up that the strain’s gassy undertones hit your nostrils. Its flavor is similar – drenched in lemon, with much more refined notes of sweet petrol and a skunky finish.
