Lemon OG, a hybrid cannabis strain, is known for its medical uses. Also called the Lemon OG Kush or Presidential Kush, Lemon OG has a distinct lemony taste that makes it popular among recreational users. Unlike many lemon strains, this 60/40 Indica strain has less of a diesel or skunk smell.
The level of THC in Lemon OG ranges from 17% to 26%. It also has a negligible amount of CBD of only 0.13%. It was first created when the OG #18 cut was crossed with the Las Vegas Lemon Skunk. Putting together a Las Vegas Lemon Skunk x Lemon OG with the original Haze 1 creates the Lemon OG Haze.
Lemon OG is slightly Indica-dominant. The flowering time ranges between 56 and 63 days, and this 60/40 Indica hybrid comes from Northern California’s Apothecary Genetics. It was first bred by a company named DNA Genetics by crossing Lemon Skunk and OG Kush to create its distinct flavor notes.
