Lemon Diesel, a popular choice for being both medicinally effective and extremely enjoyable, is a hybrid for everyone to enjoy. This strain is a good choice for feeling good while still getting things done and has the ability to provide uplifting feelings with a full body buzz. After one use of Lemon Diesel, you will understand why it was chosen to be in the top ten at the 2010 Emerald Cup.
About the Plant
A genius mix of hybrids, California Sour and Lost Coast OG, Lemon Diesel is an Indica-dominant hybrid with a THC content of 23%. Plants of this hybrid generally grow tall and have a flowering time of 8 – 10 weeks. Buds are dense and small to medium in size, showing off shades of light green, covered in light amber hairs and sticky crystals.
The pungent aroma of this strain is true to its name, predominantly smelling of lemon citrus, with a lesser diesel smell followed by hints of pepper and skunk. The smoke of this strain is smooth and pleasant in taste, strong in lemon flavor but mixed with a fruity sweetness.
Effects of Lemon Diesel
The effects tend to creep up on you, gradually leading you into a delightful well-balanced high that shows its full strength 15 to 30 minutes after its smoked.
From the start, you feel a cerebral buzz that creates an energetic euphoria. An uplifted creative boost then occurs, bringing a sense of focus and concentration. As time passes, a sense of relaxation melts further into the body, before enveloping the whole body in a state of calm euphoria.
New users may want to go slowly with this strain, as its potent effects will hit you later rather than immediately.
Stress and pain, including severe pains like migraines or chronic pain, will melt away as the effects of Lemon Diesel begin to take hold. An effective anti-nausea and appetite stimulant, as well as being an anti-inflammatory make this strain helpful to those with bowel or stomach ailments.
The uplifting and energetic high will alleviate fatigue and depression, while the overall relaxation helps with anxiety. This balance of uplift and focus with full body calm makes this strain a popular choice for those with PTSD, as well as those with attention deficit disorders.
Possible Side Effects
The common side effects of dry mouth or dry eyes may occur, with a lesser chance of dizziness or paranoia.
The creative yet focused high brought on by Lemon Diesel makes it a great choice for inspiration to complete chores and projects or do something creative, like making art or music.
For an even tastier smoking experience, Fireleaf offers flavored rolling papers and wraps. For joints, we recommend Juicy Jay rolling papers in flavors Strawberry, Blueberry or Raspberry to enhance the light berry sweetness in Lemon Diesel. Blunt smokers will enjoy High Hemp organic tobacco-free wraps in flavor Hydro-Lemonade for an extra citrus kick.
