Lemon OG, also known by its other names – Presidential Kush or Lemon OG Kush, is a hybrid that was bred by the popular seed company, DNA Genetics, by crossing Las Vegas Lemon Skunk with OG #18. The result of these two strains has produced Lemon OG, an award-winning and flavourful cannabis strain that has been well received by the Cannabis community due to its mild and laid-back effects.
Growers have the option of feminized and auto-flowering seeds and can grow this plant outdoors or indoors. In terms of yield, this plant will take roughly around 70 days to produce a good yield of short to medium-high plants. The great thing about this plant is that it requires a very light feed as well as being very resistant to mold and pests. Definitely a good candidate for low overheads!
The cross between the Las Vegas Lemon Skunk and the OG #18 cut has resulted in a very high calyx to leaf ratio, with the characteristic lemony smell that has led to its name. The scent and taste of Lemon OG, while being distinctly lemony, also has skunk or diesel undertones as a result of its shared heritage with Kush strains. This is certainly a lemon strain all over though, with the visual appearance of Lemon OG having yellow /pale green buds with white and orange trichomes that are sticky with resin. This strain can be fun to squeeze in a press!
Analytical 360 found the THCa content of Lemon OG to be a whopping 21.43%. The test also concluded that the strain contained 0.10% CBDa.
Lemon OG has quick-acting psychoactive effects which can give you that heady stimulating edge you might need as a creative. The uplifting effect of this strain makes it perfect for users who enjoy mild smoking, and who find that certain strains can negatively affect their mood or lead to a heavy body-high that can result in tiredness. If the focus is your goal, then Lemon OG is a good option for discreet usage during the day, and at night.
The THC profile of Lemon OG means that it is suitable for medical use, and many users claim to enjoy the sedative and calming effects that this strain produces. The Anti-inflammatory properties of Lemon OG also make this a good option for individuals who suffer from inflammatory conditions. In some cases, Lemon OG has been used to treat nausea that accompanies chemotherapy treatment too.
While many users enjoy Lemon OG for its mild yet quick-acting psychoactive properties, it should be noted that the strain can creep up on you so give it some time before lighting up another one. As with all recreational and medical use, users may expect the usual dry mouth and eyes. Nothing a glass of water and some eye drops can’t fix!
