Modern marijuana breeding has largely been a combination of preserving the best of the traditional classics and creating new varieties to meet modern needs (and wants). Super Lemon Diesel is an example of the latter. It takes a superb citrus phenotype of the old-time classic OG Kush and combines it with another long-time favourite, Sour Diesel, to create Super Lemon Diesel.
The flavour of Super Lemon Diesel is exactly what the name suggests, although the name does not do it justice. Fans of sour diesel will get all that delicious fuel taste they expect, but with the added interest of a sweet, fresh, citrus overtone, to get those taste buds really working.
Of course, marijuana is about far more than just the taste. Super Lemon Diesel has been created to deal with what may be the most common medical condition there is, everyday stress. Commuting, work, running around after children, caring for elderly relatives, the list goes on and on and sometimes you just need something to help create a period of rest and recuperation, basically something to make life a little better. Super Lemon Diesel gets to work quickly with that energetic, cerebral buzz typical of a high-quality Sativa. This then eases gently into the full-body relaxation expected of a high-quality Indica. It’s a great way to wind down from a stressful day, ready for a good night’s sleep, but it can also be used in the daytime.
Super Lemon Diesel can be grown by beginners, as long as they are prepared to put in a bit of effort. The first point to remember is that Super Lemon Diesel is a Sativa dominant and therefore does need vertical space, particularly in the last two to three weeks of its growing cycle as it tends to have a real growth spurt during this time. This means that realistically growers need to be prepared to use low-stress training. Those who are new to marijuana but familiar with gardening in general should be fine with this. Those who are not might want to focus on other strains and perhaps try one Super Lemon Diesel plant at a time until they get the hang of it.
