Super Lemon Haze has an average of 19% THC and 0.21% CBD. Both the pain relief and the head buzz are everything you would expect from a high-quality Sativa. The high is bright, energetic and joyous. It is, however, a bit mellower than you’d expect from a pure Sativa. Basically, the 30% Indica genetics provide a grounding anchor. As the head buzz dissipates, it is replaced by a moderate full-body stone. You’re very unlikely to be actually couchlocked. You are, however, going to be far too relaxed to want to move. It’s therefore a good idea to be prepared with some snacks and water as the marijuana munchies are pretty much a given. Overall, Super Lemon Haze is possibly the perfect “day-and-night” strain. During the day, the CBD content is enough to deliver a refreshing “power nap”. You still need to be careful to refocus before doing anything complicated. In general, however, you’ll be able to “wake and bake” quite happily. At night, by contrast, you can just let yourself relax into the CBD embrace. It will carry you off into dreamland. It’ll also provide long-lasting pain relief to help you to stay there.
The indoor yield is about 800g/m2. The outdoor yield can be up to 1.2Kg per plant. Super Lemon Haze will do well in all common growing media. It also has a more reasonable appetite than the average Sativa (dominant).
Indoors, Super Lemon Haze needs about 10 weeks of flowering. Outdoors it will be ready around the middle of October. Either way, it is likely to stay fairly compact. In fact, it is unlikely to grow beyond 1.1M.
Overall, this strain is fairly undemanding. It’s certainly much less demanding than your average Haze. This is presumably thanks to the Skunk genetics. These add robustness to just about every strain in which they are used. Having said that, total beginners may wish to look elsewhere. The reason for this is that Super Lemon Haze is really only happy outdoors in the warmest, driest and sunniest of locations. Basically, it ideally needs to be in the Mediterranean basin. Further north, it may be fine if you choose a really sheltered growing location. Your challenge will be finding somewhere to keep your plants protected right up until well into autumn.
In northern Europe, greenhouse growing might be a reasonable compromise. This would allow you to make use of natural light, while still keeping your plants warm and dry. Once you hit the Channel and beyond, however, really this becomes an indoor-only strain. It’s also a photoperiod strain, which means you need to be comfortable managing grow lights. You also need to nurture your plants through a ten-week growing cycle. This is quite long by modern standards and, frankly, means there is more time for problems to arise.
Having said that, you can avoid most problems by simply remembering your marijuana basics. In particular, you absolutely must ensure good ventilation. This means keeping your plants spaced well apart. You absolutely must avoid them “bumping into each other” as this will impede airflow. In addition to ensuring good ventilation, it’s also highly recommended to practice good odour control. Even if you love the smell of lemon, the odour from this strain can become a bit too much to handle. Indoors, you will want to have air filters in place by the middle of the flowering period. This is at the latest. Outdoors, you will want to be really careful about checking the direction of the prevailing winds. This can go a long way to staying on good terms with your neighbours.
Super Lemon Haze really does have a super taste and aroma. It’s absolutely packed with citrus lemon freshness. There’s also the zingy tang of pink grapefruit and fresh lime. This is then topped with the classic Haze spices. In particular, there’s a generous dash of black pepper. This will set your tongue tingling. Overall, however, the flavour is definitely on the sweeter side.
Possibly the biggest part of this strain’s bag appeal is the sheer size of the bag. That aside, however, Super Lemon Haze is a very attractive strain. It has mossy green leaves set off by orange hairs and frosty trichomes. Those trichomes make the nugs very sticky. A grinder is strongly recommended. In fact, it might be essential. It will certainly allow you to work comfortably enough to enjoy the lemon scent you release as the nugs are opened.
