Lemon Haze Marijuana Strain

Lemon Haze Marijuana Strain

The Lemon Haze marijuana strain has a fan base from both Indica and Sativa lovers. While it is classified as a Sativa-dominant hybrid, it provides long-lasting effects to both the body and mind. Its lemon scent and flavor make it a fan favorite for those with any palate; leaving a memorable citrus aroma to all who give it a try. It is best when used during the day as this strain is sure to kick everyone’s mind into high gear.


Taking a look at the parent strains typically shows where a strain gets its characteristics from. Lemon Haze marijuana is a cross between Silver Haze and the pungent Lemon Skunk. Let us take a quick glance at the parent strains to see how this wonderful strain was created.

Silver Haze Marijuana Strain

This strain is one of a few to win multiple awards in various competitions. It won first place at the Cannabis Cup three consecutive years in a row from 1998-2000. Additionally, it won awards at the High Times Cannabis Cup Festival, which is no small feat.

Being a sticky Sativa blend means users are left with an active, long-lasting body high. It helps users with stress, lack of appetite and stomach issues.

The overall flavor profile is earthy, citrus and sweet.

Pungent Lemon Skunk Marijuana Strain

Doesn’t take a genius to see what this parent strain offers up. Made from two skunk phenotypes, this strain was created to specifically have lemon traits.

Much like the other parent strain, Lemon Skunk leaves users with an energetic and blissful high. Great for treating mental ailments such as stress and depression.

Overall aroma and flavor profile are lemon, skunk, and citrus.


As you can see, each parent strain is known for its energy-driven head high, so it comes as no surprise that the Lemon Haze marijuana provides the same effects. Some claim this is the best strain for those specifically looking for a day time head high with a bit of a body high thrown into the mix. The body high makes users feel something without having them feel so much they can’t move or become immobile.

Works great as a wake and bake type of strain, and can be used at any time of day. High effects are a bit slower to feel than other strains, so users should give it a bit before consuming more, even when smoked. When taken in edible form, give it up to an hour before judging its effects. Edibles often take at least 30-60 minutes before anything will be felt. This is because it has to enter through the bloodstream and doesn’t enter directly into the lungs.

High THC

THC levels measure up to 15%-20% which is on the higher side. With these levels of THC, users need to be careful of the dose size they take. Higher doses are going to leave users with major psychoactive feelings and sensory distortion. This is sure to leave new users in a shocking state, because this can affect either all or just some of a user’s senses.

What is sensory distortion? Basically, it is any time one of your senses is being altered giving your brain false feelings. The most common sensory distortion felt by marijuana users is typically dealing with sight, sound, and overall body feelings. It is because of this reason people often have hallucinations. Hallucinations can be full blown or just in the sense of time distortion, which makes people feel time in a slow or fast way.

Medical Uses

With a hybrid that works so well with the body and mind, this is a stand out medical marijuana strain. Playing around with the dose will allow users to find the correct amount to help treat their specific ailment.
