Make Lemonade with the Lemon OG Strain

The Lemon OG strain (also known as Lemon OG Kush or Presidential Kush) is a balanced hybrid that’s pretty easy to get your hands on since it’s widely used and well-loved. While this 50/50 sativa/indica blend doesn’t deliver a very long-lasting high, it more than makes up for its lack of longevity with its speed of onset and effectiveness.

Expect to feel pleasantly euphoric, creative, and uplifted before you gently settle into heavy relaxation. Overall, Lemon OG delivers an uplifted, happy calm that’s great for melting away stress and irritation, but beware — it usually brings about a serious case of the munchies.

      Strain Information

      Since its creation, the Lemon OG strain has won a variety of cannabis awards and has also enjoyed widespread popularity. The strain has an average THC content of about 20%, which makes it a solid choice for both recreational and medicinal use. But Lemon OG doesn’t have any CBD whatsoever, so it’s probably not the best bud for addressing more intense medical symptoms.

      A cross between Las Vegas Lemon Skunk and The OG #18, Lemon OG’s effects feel a bit more psychoactive than its kush relatives. It delivers a rapid-onset cerebral high accompanied by a weighty, medicated sensation that can feel pretty sleepy, depending on the dose.

      Where The Lemon OG Strain Is Grown

      The Lemon OG strain was created by DNA Genetics in 2004. After breeding its parent strains, these guys discovered that the brand-new Lemon OG plant grew with an unusually high calyx-to-leaf ratio.

      Calyxes form the beginnings of the cannabis plant’s pistils and trichomes, which eventually become the richest source of THC on the entire plant. Given its amazingly high quantity of calyxes, Lemon OG was (and still is) a remarkably high-yield strain.

      This bud’s high THC concentration and yield made it a desirable strain among growers, which ultimately led to its rise in popularity.

      Strain Summary

      If you’re looking for a relaxing mood boost before bed, Lemon OG won’t disappoint. While it might not knock you out completely, it does hit quick and hard with a happy, euphoric head high that almost borders on sleepy. Expect a heavy body high as the cerebral effects mellow out and a relaxed comedown that gently lulls you into a peaceful, medicated sleep.

      Since Lemon OG is among the most fast-acting, heavy-hitting hybrids out there, it’s probably best for experienced cannabis users.
