Super Lemon Haze was winner of the High Times Cannabis Cup two years running in 2008 and 2009 along with many more awards subsequently. It is a cross of Lemon Skunk with Super Silver Haze and is 70% sativa. It strikes a good balance between the cerebral and the physical in terms of its effects.
Super Lemon Haze grows fairly tall with quite wide branches resembling the shape of a Christmas tree. Indoors SCRoG or LST methods are recommended for the best results where yields of 800 gr/m2 are possible in an 10 week flowering period. Outdoors it will definitely need supporting so that the branches are at little risk of snapping before the buds are mature. It is possible to get yields of 1200 gr/plant by mid-October in northern Europe.
With THC of 24% and a complex flavour which incorporates an intense, sharp citrus (lemon, lime, grapefruit) taste along with notes of incense, black pepper and an earthy, musky after-taste this is a much-prized strain. Its effect is well-balanced, starting out with a very fast, physical indica attack and smoothly transitioning to a more cerebral, creative type of high that is very long-lasting.
Super Lemon Haze is recommended for therapeutic use to treat a lack of appetite and for pain relief.
