Budtender Strain Of The Month: Lemon Kush - True North Cannabis Co

Lemon Kush is more than just a strain; it’s an aromatic adventure and a flavour escapade that captivates the palate. This month, embrace the zesty awakening of the lemon kush strain.

This month, we’re shining the spotlight on this beloved cultivar that stands out not only for its vibrant name but also for the citrusy symphony it delivers to the senses.

An uplifting cerebral high paired with next-level relaxation awaits when life gives you this (psychedelic) lemon! Packed with citrusy, sweet and sour flavours, it’s known to bring calm, uplifting, and creative vibes to those who are ready to take it on. Averaging around 20-26% THC and 1% CBD, it’s a near-perfect 50:50 sativa/indica hybrid.

Keep reading to discover why Lemon Kush has earned its place as the Budtender Strain of the Month at True North Cannabis Co. and why it deserves a place in your rotation!

A Brief History of the Lemon Kush Strain

The origin story of Lemon Kush is a testament to the rich tapestry of cannabis cultivation.

This hybrid is a harmonious blend of Lemon Joy and Master Kush, two iconic varieties that paved the way for the creation of a truly aromatic masterpiece—or did they? The exact lineage of this popular strain is not entirely clear. Some say it was actually made by crossing Lemon G and Afghan Kush.

Either way, the lemon side of its lineage is what contributes to the strain’s unmistakable citrus notes, a train that sets Lemon Kush apart in a world of diverse cannabis profiles. Master Kush, renowned for its balanced effects and resinous buds, adds depth and complexity to the genetic makeup, resulting in a strain that offers not just a sensory delight, but a nuanced and well-rounded experience.

Originally cultivated on the West Coast, Lemon Kush quickly gained popularity for its refreshing terpene profile and versatile effects. As it journeyed from grow room to dispensary shelves, its reputation soared, and it became a staple for those seeking a flavourful escape.

Lemon Kush Strain Profile

Let’s explore the specifics of why we love this strain by getting to know more about its appearance, aroma, flavours, and terpene profile.


Lemon Kush typically has light green buds with hints of white and orange trichomes. The dense and resinous structure of its buds showcases the careful cultivation that goes into this strain, making it not just a treat for the senses but also a spectacle for the eyes!

Aroma and Flavours:

The aroma is a harmonious blend of fresh lemon and earthy undertones, creating a fragrant symphony that lingers in the air. True to its name, Lemon Kush introduces itself on the inhale with a burst of citrus, complemented by a smooth exhale with hints of sweet earthiness.

The Lemon Kush strain offers elevated sessions accompanied by a full-body experience—perfect for citrus enthusiasts and cannabis connoisseurs!

Terpene Profile:

To no one’s surprise, limonene is responsible for the strain’s citrusy aroma, which contributes not only to the captivating scent but also its potential mood-enhancing effects.

Lemon Kush Strain Effects

There’s nothing sour about the effects of Lemon Kush!

A common theme among strain reviews was feelings of happiness, gigglyness, and euphoria. Around the 20-25 minute mark, many individuals experienced heightened levels of creativity or complete relaxation—so whatever your favourite thing to do high is, this strain will be your plus one!

Another key trait of this strain’s effects is that many don’t find it provides as much of a couch-locking effect as other kush strains. This makes Lemon Kush great for daytime use—just remember to start low and go slow.

How the Lemon Kush Strain Is Grown

Lemon Kush has a flowering time of 8 to 10 weeks and benefits from early training and/or pruning of its leaves. Generally, it grows the best in warm and dry climates—think the Mediterranean or the southern United States.

Growing this cannabis strain is generally considered easy at best and moderately difficult at worst. Beginner growers can definitely give it a shot!

When grown indoors, its plants typically reach a height of 100 to 130 cm and yield 450 to 500 grams/m². Conversely, when grown outdoors, its plants are usually ready to harvest in late September to mid-October, often growing as tall as 170 to 230 cm and producing a medium-sized average yield.

A Similar Strain Worth Trying

The Lemon Kush strain is good for beginners because of its balanced effects and relatively low THC levels. In saying that, we highly recommend checking out Sonic Lemon Fuel.

Just like Lemon Kush, it’s bursting with limonene terpenes and a similar THC and CBD profile—22.1% and 1% to be exact. Similarly, individuals report experiencing feelings of happiness and a boost of energy, which lends to enhanced cerebral focus and creativity, too.
