Lemon Tree Strain Info
Lemon Tree Genetics
Genetics: Lemon Skunk x Sour Diesel
Lemon Tree was developed in an effort to pull together two bold-flavored cultivars with a Hybrid genetic makeup. So the two parent strains happen to be some of the most aromatic, flavorful, and potent plants in cannabis: Lemon Skunk and Sour Diesel. While the cannabinoid profiles can vary, the matchup yielded a cultivar with THC ranges between 20 and 25 percent.
The Lemon Tree strain is actually a parent strain for Lemon Tree/Purple Chem, which is an alpha offspring. Both Purple Chem and Lemon Tree come from the Chemdog lineage, so crossing the two amplifies the all-star flavor profile and effects.
Lemon Tree Terpenes
Top Terpenes: Pinene, Caryophyllene, Myrcene
Terpene profiles can vary depending on the grower, but the same general dominant prospects show up in most. Myrcene is pretty heavy in this cultivar, but there is a nice balance of caryophyllene and pinene. And, some terpenes on the lower end like valencene contribute to that smooth citrus fruitiness for a nice finish.
You’ll immediately notice skunky, zesty lemon when it comes to aromatics, but with a strong kick of pungent diesel. As far as flavor, the strain comes across as surprisingly smooth and sweet. You almost always get a pinch of peppered tea at the end of the hit and a slight hint of dank earth.

Lemon Tree Strain Effects
Effects: Steady euphoria, happy-go-lucky outlook, relaxed comedown
The Lemon Tree strain is a well-rounded hybrid, so getting the best of both worlds can be expected. The top reported effects include relaxation, happiness, and hunger, so be prepared to chill in your happy-go-lucky world while you find a new appreciation for any snack you can get your hands on.
With just a few hits, you almost immediately get the kick of euphoric energy that will have you in happy land. But that up-kick is followed by a slow-and-easy, utterly relaxing comedown. Lemon Tree is a go-to for people with the blues, decent for pain, and a good afternoon strain when you need to settle in for good sleep.
