Sativa 60 / Indica 40
Origins: Skunk x Skunk
Flowering: 56-63 days
The Lemon Skunk is all about selection. This addition to the venerable skunk family is a cross between two skunks that were selected especially for lemon characteristics. The special Lemon mother was kept for over twenty years in Las Vegas, Nevada. The skunk father was chosen in Holland, originally a donation from Eddie, the man who was at the helm of one of the oldest and most prestigious seed banks in Netherlands for many years.
The Lemon Skunkis a sativa-indica hybrid with a slightly higher sativa ratio. It has sativa-hybrid characteristics, growing tall but with a high calyx-to-leaf ratio, making it easy to trim. The structure of the plant tends to be open, but can get somewhat bushy, so it works best as a multi-branch plant. Lemonk Skunk fares well with moderate to heavy nutrients and doesn’t mind the heat. The leaves are a medium to lighter green with medium to slender sativa style leaflets, and the buds also stay light green and form a profusion of orange hairs. At finish, this bud is dewy with crystalline resin. The Lemon Skunk strain takes 8-9 weeks to finish, but reaches its apex of sweetness if cut down between 50 and 56 days.
Lemon Skunk is a tasty sweet citrus bud for those who like a fresh fruity stash. The enjoyable sativa-leaning high boosts the senses, bringing on thoughtful reflection and heightened sensory perception. It may also boost the sense for a need to go spelunk through the fridge for some munchies. Fans of the fresh-citrus end of the cannabis flavor palate will understand why Lemon Skunk has won multiple awards, including a cup at Spannabis and a first place win for outdoor at the Highlife in 2007.
