Where the Lemon Diesel Strain Is Grown
Word has it that the breeders at Green Lantern Seeds came up with the Lemon Diesel strain. But the California-based Emerald Triangle Seeds also has a version of Lemon Diesel, which is a cross between California Sour and Pakistani X Lemon Thai X Chemdawg #4 (which is, for all intents and purposes, the Lost Coast OG strain). The ETS version of the strain appears to have the genetics we’re talking about here.
