Super Lemon Haze Strain Review
Super Lemon Haze is a blend of Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze, and it has a sativa/indica ratio of 80:20. That means heady, peppy, cerebral effects: arousal, creativity, energy, euphoria, and intense happiness. These make for ideal tools in treating depression, fatigue, anxiety, nausea, and chronic pain.
The genetics of one of Super Lemon Haze’s ancestors, Lemon Skunk, dominate this strain’s smell. It is delightfully, potently lemony. But then, there are also complex notes within this strain’s fragrance. It also has notes of sweetness, spiciness, and earthiness.
The unique terpene profile in Super Lemon Haze is responsible for its irresistible aroma. According to Leafly, the top four terpenes in it are terpinolene, myrcene, caryophyllene, and ocimene.
The most dominant terpene in this strain is terpinolene, a terpene with a complex aroma. Terpinolene has fruity, piney, floral, herbal, and citrus notes. Terpinolene-dominant strains are actually fairly rare. This terpene is found in many strains, but usually only in small amounts. Some other notable strains that are terpinolene dominant include Orange Cookies and Jack Herer.
The second most prevalent terpene is myrcene, a terpene that is both fruity and earthy. Then, the third most dominant terpene is caryophyllene, a spicy and deep terpene. Lastly, the fourth most prevalent terpene is ocimene, a herbaceous, earthy, and citrusy terpene that adds the distinctive depth.
Like its smell, the flavor is multifaceted. Many people compare the taste of this strain to Lemonheads, the sweet yet slightly sour lemon candy. But in addition to having a sweet lemony taste, it has a lovely, spicy, and deep taste comparable to the taste of cloves.
Super Lemon Haze’s effects usually start with a mellow body buzz that then gives way to an invigorating, focused high fit for accomplishing complex tasks; increased attention to detail and bursts of motivation and creativity have been reported. Super Lemon Haze is also known to stimulate appetite and its pleasant body sensations may even act as an aphrodisiac.
Because of its robust effects, this sativa-dominant hybrid isn’t recommended for newbies or those prone to cannabis-induced anxiety. Paranoia and jitteriness are possible if this marijuana strain is consumed in large doses.
Medical marijuana patients may find the uplifting qualities of Super Lemon Haze useful for depression and chronic fatigue. Some consumers note that they feel the relaxing physical effect first in the eyes and face—possibly making this a good strain for quick migraine or sinus pressure relief.
