Lemon Drop weed is a sativa dominant hybrid is popular among the medical cannabis community on the West Coast of America. Its precise genetic heritage is unknown, but its effects and growth habits mean we can be sure that this weed has some potent Sativa strains in its background.
Lemon Drop weed’s bouquet displays a strong undercurrent of newly dug earth that is tempered by sweetish notes of citrus. When you taste it, you’ll understand where it gets its name from – the flavour is unmistakeably lemon. The high is cerebral rather than physical so this a good weed for daytime use, but not so good at bedtime. A few tokes will leave you ready for socialising or for physical activity. Medical dispensaries recommend it to relieve pain and to enhance appetite.
Its sativa heritage means that the Lemon Drop strain grows quite tall, over two metres in some cases. The buds are light green, fluffy and quite elongated. THC content has been measured as high as 23 percent.
Lemon Drop marijuana’s vigorous growth means that it needs some pruning back to keep it within bounds indoors. A well-trimmed SCROG is a good method for growing this weed, which does well in either hydro or soil set ups. Flowering time is quite long and the yields are average. Unless you live somewhere with at least a sub-tropical climate, outdoor growing is not recommended.
Lemon Drop weed is not the easiest strain to grow, but experienced growers choose this strain for its exceptionally high THC levels and its fragrant lemon flavor.
