Lemon Haze is a very popular sativa-dominant hybrid that derives both its potency and its powerful aroma from two prestigious parents: it is a cross between sativa hybrid Silver Haze and pungent Lemon Skunk. With a memorable citrus flavor profile and a long-lasting, well-balanced high to boot, this bud is an asset to indica and sativa fans alike. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 ranks Lemon Haze’s psychoactivity at between 12% and a staggering 25%.
Flowers of Lemon Haze impress with a distinct shape and texture. These buds are medium to large in size and adhere in roughly spherical chunks. Although the leaves are densely packed, they have a somewhat ragged and fluffy appearance. These fluffy leaves are a mossy shade of green and are threaded through with vibrant orange pistils. Amber trichomes cover these buds, giving them a slightly yellow glow and accounting for their high psychoactivity.
When properly cured, Lemon Haze carries a strong citrus aroma; the tang of lemon is the predominant scent. Hanging out underneath is a spicy herbal kick that fans of parent strain Haze will almost certainly recognize. Surprisingly, this strain has little of the acrid funk that characterizes its other parent, Lemon Skunk. When combusted, Lemon Haze burns with a smooth and easily ingested smoke. This smoke tastes refreshingly herbal on the exhale, with some lingering lemon notes.
Lemon Haze is said to offer a creeping high that may require several minutes before fully revealing its effects. At first, smokers may pick up on a change in their perception of external stimuli, with certain sights or sounds taking on a psychedelic new dimension. This sensory distortion is accompanied by a sudden improvement in mood, as any stressors take a backseat to this bud’s positive mindset. An increase in cerebral activity may lead to stimulating conversation; this strain may also inspire creativity for those who are so inclined. In addition to these emotionally uplifting effects, Lemon Haze tends to provide the motivation needed to get up and plow through tasks like cleaning the house or running errands. A strong body stone eventually emerges and becomes more pronounced as the high wears on. This combination of mental and physical effects can be a great way to appreciate activities that involve both body and mind, like exercise and, notably, sex. As dosage is increased, smokers may lose their thoughtful, cerebral edge, becoming more spacey and disconnected from their surroundings. On its backend, Lemon Haze will leave you content to melt into the couch and let your mind wander. Because of its energetic onset, this strain is best enjoyed for waking-and-baking or as an afternoon treat; if consumed at night, it’s likely to leave users wired and hyper.
Lemon Haze may have several applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its positive mental effects can temporarily distract from the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. The strain’s early sense of focus can also help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain concentration on single tasks. Physically speaking, this bud can help relieve pain, whether it’s temporary or chronic and nerve-related. Although Lemon Haze’s cerebral effects aren’t usually regarded as overly intense, those who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC may want to consume this sativa with caution.
Several different commercial breeders have made seeds of Lemon Haze available for sale online. Once obtained, it can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Those growing indoors should keep this plant’s height in check by trimming back and pruning branches early in the vegetative stage. Lemon Haze flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and is ready for harvest in early October when grown outdoors. It offers a modest yield of about 40 to 44 grams (or 1.4 to 1.6 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
Lemon Haze is an ideal all-purpose strain with a pleasant and refreshing aroma. It’s as enjoyable when shared with friends as its when savored alone -- if you do break it out around others though, bring enough to share, as its unique aroma is bound to turn some heads.

Not usually a big Sativa person, But absolutely love this one, Helps me deal with my multiple sclerosis better, Very Nice High!
A smooth smoke. Definitely helps with nausea and adhd (I have a chronic case of both). A good buzz, but won't leave you messy.
I remember back in the days when I used to get some of these. Most of the time, it wasn't dry properly, so it was basically wet, it didn't get strong effect either, in fact it was like smoking CBD where you feel a lil thing kicks it. Again this was most of the time, but one day I got some very crunchy, beautiful buds. If I remember correctly, the smell was pretty tangy, like the description said, a strong citrus aroma with a hint of spicy. Like in my mind it was like the big brother citrus lemon aroma, and the little brother spicy aroma standing behind. The effect though wasn't what I expected, it came smoothly and left me on a mid high stimulation and lasted for an hour, I don't remember what was the next effects but all I know is that didn't last that long, but it gave me a great euphoria and happiness that lasted for hours. And one day, I got some properly cured, the buds were crunchy, a bit rock and very sticky. when I smelled it though I was scared that I'd get that mid high again, but still the buds were looking crazy so I knew this gotta knock me out. Indeed, this strain delivered me one of the best high I've ever had. It was crazy, since I had high tolerance at that time ( still have ) I was looking for something pretty strong, and since its illegal in my country it wasn't easy to get some good stuffs. The aroma was as Lemon haze smells, tangy citrus and spicy, but in that case I could clearly smell the earthy spicy notes combined with the Lemom citrus smell. The taste was basically the same as the smell. Talking about the high now, This was something I could never forget, like after 2 puffs I could instantly feel the strong euphoria invading my body and uplifting me. I didn't smoke half of the joint that I was already high asf, this felt like the earlier days smoking cannabis. I listened to couple of Lofi music, and I was just happy to be alive, everything seemed joyful, the same feelings you experience when you having a very good dream. I was looking at my city and somehow it felt like it wasn't my city that I was watching, it felt like a city I could imagine because it was so perfect and relaxing just to look at it. So yeah basically, the Lemon Haze, the one properly cured, gave me a strong uplifiting, yet stimulating, with a lot of creativity, it was very psychedelic with very nice sound and view distortion, that will remind you the good old days for sure .
