The vibrant flavours and colours of the cannabis world have us all mesmerized to the point of no return. I mean, look at this earthy beauty that sends us to the frenzied station with just a quick burn. How can we not be in awe of pot and its magnifying miracles? 

Okay, you guessed it. I am a pot fan, and there is no denying that these green buds deserve the strong following that they have. Even though I consider myself as an unbiased person, I will be concentrating on a specific cannabis bud today - The Super Lemon Haze. 

I will let you in on a secret - It's one of my favourites. The citrus lover in me got tempted with the name, and if you add 'Super' in any bud and then present it to a stoner, they will most likely just accept it with open arms, mind, and a pack of paper. I mean, you get it right?

So without further delay, lay back, smoke up (no pressure their homie), and read this informative article on one of the zesty, lemony buds that you can find in the green world. 

Let me take you on an enlightening ride!

Super Lemon Haze - An Overview

If you're not someone who likes an in-depth, long read, I have got your back. This little table below will tell you everything you need to know about the beautiful strain, and you can have a quick glance before rushing to the local dispensary. 

Origins and Genetics

The Super Lemon Haze gets its name from its equally vibrant and colourful parents - Lemon Skunk & Super Silver Haze. Lemon Skunk travelled through Amsterdam and made its way into the hands of Arjan, the chief breeder of Green House Seeds. His brilliancy made him cross with another zesty favourite called Super Silver Haze. And you know what they say, the rest is history. 

Super Lemon Haze Genetics

The blend was so appreciated that our very own bud became a two-times cannabis cup winner and is still going strong after many years. A unique taste, a vibrant effect, and a citrusy aroma, there is nothing that you would be missing with this pretty thing. 

Now, moving forwards, let's take a look at its appearance and growth.

Appearance & Growing Condition

I read somewhere that this beauty is called a kief-caked multi-coloured wonder and there has never been a more apt description of a bud.

Taking it a notch further, the Super Lemon Haze has a generous amount of coated crystalline and heavy amount of clear and resinous trichomes. And that's not it, the Super Lemon Haze also entails a good amount of THC, almost bordering on more than 25%. Remember that such a huge amount of THC can bubble up anxiety and panic thoughts, so keep well within the limits of your tolerance.

The buds have a glowing green colour with a blend of orangish and yellow pistils, giving it a classy twist and yet keeping it true to the classic lemony look of the cannabis. The twist is a one to die for, cause' honestly this one isn't just a pretty face. Moving on from the buds of the strain, the leaves are equally invigorating and breathtaking with a long, stretching length and a lively green shade.

All in all, a very appealing bud, which clearly explains my over pouring love for the strain.

Moving on to its growing conditions, the strain is one such which doesn't need a lot of attention but may need support during flowering. Even though amateur growers are not very keen on growing it, it is an interesting strain to grow.

The Super Lemon Haze adjusts well to the indoor as well as outdoor setup, though you might want to take into account that its Sativa lineage transforms into a staggering height. If grown outdoors, unrestricted, the strain is known to spread its root structure and present an almost tree-like height with tremendous yield. 

Super Lemon Haze Growing Condition

The good news is that the plant is resistant to the fungus Botrytis, grey mould. It also performs well with Screen of Green technique and is known to provide an output of 600 grams when grown indoors, which increases to 800grams when grown outdoors. The Super Lemon Haze flowering period is known to last for 56-65 days, making this delicious buddy ready and dope. Outdoor growers, the strain is ready to be harvested to mid-October so plan accordingly. 

Now that we know how it looks and how we can grow this majestic beauty, let's move on to another characteristic that honestly sets the ball rolling in the correct direction.

Aroma - The scents of Super Lemon Haze

There is something enticing about good aroma, whether food, cannabis, people, or even just a minor thing as a soap. And this has a scientific backing which states that the olfactory bulbs; basically the part of the brain responsible for dealing with odours, is linked to the one that deals with the emotions. So that's how I know why I get excited when I get a whiff of the zesty, citrus smell. 

The scent of Super Lemon Haze will take you through a stroll in a garden which is enriched with all the citrus fruit that you can think of. With a hint of grapefruit, orange, lemon peel, and others, it culminates into a flowery, spicy aroma that leaves you mesmerized with a heightened olfactory and a watering mouth. Most people also describe the fragrance as tangy and spicy, which also depicts the same feeling like a lemon candies/drops.

Moving on from the aroma to the taste, let's see what the verdict says there. 

Taste of Super Lemon Haze

It's pretty evident that the taste of the strain will reflect the same aromatic spicy, sweetness, and the citrus that it has been named after. Anything you expect from such a name is reflected in its tangy, tart-like candy taste that makes it even more enjoyable. 

It's almost like sucking on a toffee which refreshes your mouth, but in a minty cool way, but in a refreshing way. Almost like the sunshine on a cold morning. Okay- I got carried away. But it's true, and the taste of the citrusy bud lingers and plays with your palate long after you stop consuming it. You can further describe it as an iced lemonade or a citrus marmalade; anything that tempts you enough to get your hands on this beauty. And the best part, the entire flavour is given to us by mother earth without any contributions from labs and artificial flavouring. Pretty DOPE!

Striking aroma and flavour from our list, let's move on to the main reason why this bud has won awards and has been quickly rising to every pothead's wishlist. 

Effects - Super Lemon Haze

A strain with such an invigorating and enticing aroma and flavour cannot lead you towards a mellow high. The Sativa-dominant strain exhibits all the qualities of a high-THC resinous bud that leaves you with a mind-high that is just perfect to get things done.

Energetic and Lively is the best way to describe the effects of Super Lemon Haze. For this reason, it is also known as an outdoorsy or morning strain, just enough to live through the day with zeal, enthusiasm, brimming creativity, and to-do lists. 

With its uplifting qualities, the Super Lemon Haze is the most sought-after by creative people who want the inspiration to bubble and burst over a piece of paper. If you're looking to finally finish the sketch or write a song, or even just dance, this strain gets on the right path and how! Honestly, pile up all your pending tasks and use this beauty to get it done without any effort. You'd be humming while cleaning a week's dishes, and that is nothing short of a miracle. 

The best part of the strain is that it also entails a few indica qualities which keep you grounded enough to avoid being head-spacey. It elevates your mood along with a buzzing feel that keeps you surprisingly stoned. 


Let's put this out there - a high THC strain might lead to paranoia or stress for some people, especially those who are new to this world or have a lower tolerance for the intended high. Make sure you keep yourself limited to the average quantity and being conscious of ever going overboard. 

The other common side-effect of Super Lemon Haze is nothing different from the general cannabis that we see. You might go home with red or dry eyes, cotton-mouth, and in some cases, dehydration. All these symptoms can be avoided by consuming more fluid, and for the eyes, you can always get a lubricant from a general pharmacy. I always advise people to keep a bottle of water whenever they're planning to smoke up cause' let's face it when you are in the working rage, nothing stops you from the grind. 

Apart from this, most consumers just enjoy the pleasing high that accompanies this sweet, citrus strain.


What is Super Lemon Haze good for?

To answer this honestly, I would say it is great for a pleasing, unproblematic high that leads you towards the more creative and motivating side of your characteristic.

Is Lemon Haze Indica or Sativa?

A Super Lemon Haze is a Sativa-dominant strain with hints of Indica properties which gives us a beautifully balanced effect. 

Does Lemon Haze make you sleepy?

As mentioned, the trace of Indica in this Sativa-dominant weed leads to a whiff of relaxation, but nothing so overpowering that you'll be left couch-locked. It is a balanced strain, which will make you feel happy enough to stay in bed without additional guilt or sadness. 

How long does Lemon Haze high last?

Generally, the ideal time for the Lemon Haze high is 2-3 hours, but this also largely depends on your consumption amount.

Is Super Lemon Haze strong?

Yes, bordering on 25% THC, the Super Lemon Haze is a pretty strong bud. However, it's effects are not psychedelic or mind-numbing, but stay on the surface and provide just enough creativity and upliftment to provide you with a burst of energy and motivation to get things done. 

This brings us to the end of our review article on Super Lemon Haze. I know I have been through and through a fan of this strain, but the love was slow and real so I urge you to view this strain as something that naturally grows on you. Of course, the flavours that this citrus bud presents might not be preferable to some, but when it works, it really works.
