Tangy Lemon Ganja Goodness
Despite her slight leaning toward the Indica side of her genetics, Lemon OG Feminized (also known as Presidential Kush or OG Lemon Kush) is a hybrid that delivers well-balanced effects for the mind and body, with THC levels that linger around the 24% mark.
Her highs can be intense in higher doses, but keep it moderate and you’ll find most can manage her psychoactive traits fairly well.
The lovechild of Las Vegas Lemon Skunk and OG #18, this hybrid’s genetics include award-winning strains that reflect their elite status in the cannabis community. As such, it’s no surprise that this is reflected in the high these buds bring, which begins as a euphoric, focusing calm and is followed up by a deep relaxation that eventually lures you to slumber.
As lemon flavored as her name would imply, still, Lemon OG can be harsh on the throat, and is best enjoyed using a water bong or vape. Even so, her recreational traits are also beneficial to the medical marijuana community, as she’s a mild pain-reliever and excellent at calming the minds of PTSD and OCD sufferers.
Cannabis cultivators will rejoice at the hardiness of this hybrid, as she draws upon Kush genes to resist many pests and diseases, making her choice cannabis for novice cultivators to pick to grow. For the more experienced grower, she’s easy to manage and will likely provide you with even heftier yields than imagined in the right environment.
Flavor and Fragrance of Lemon OG Feminized
You don’t put lemon in the name if it isn't there in the flavor-profile, and Lemon OG is no different. The tangy, citrus lemon notes in the fruity aroma of this herb suggest her terpenoids include a healthy dose of limonene, and after inhaling this it’s hard to disagree, even with undertones of skunkiness inherited from her Kush ancestry.
Once combusted, this strain’s smoke is clear but slightly harsher, and can lead to a bit of a coughing fit if you’re not careful. To temper this, we’d suggest consuming Lemon OG in a water bong, and trying vaping - this will smooth out the hit and allow you to truly appreciate the sweet-sour citric after taste.
A hybrid herb that’s uplifting from the offset, Lemon OG Fem clears the mind with a profound and euphoric buzz almost as soon as you begin. Whilst improving your mood dramatically, this strain also ushers in creative thinking, sometimes even promoting philosophical thoughts and deep conversations that can easily veer into introspection.
As the physical, more Indica effects begin to settle in, you’ll find your mind remains as sharp and focused as before, but thoughts begin to take on a dream-like quality as any motivation to move quickly ceases.
You’ll not want to resist the calming properties this pot leaves in her wake, deeply relaxing you with a heavy, weighted down feeling that melts your limbs and locks you to the couch in a sleep state of sheer bliss, though some reports have suggested that the effects of this strain aren’t particularly long-lived - so take advantage while you can.
Medical Uses of Lemon OG Feminized
Since this strain is known for improving mood and ushering in positive thought, it’s well-known that she’s also a potent stress reliever and Lemon OG Fem is often used by the medicinal marijuana community for the management of depression and anxiety too. What’s less well documented are this strain’s antipsychotic properties, which are of great therapeutic benefit to patients suffering from bipolar, OCD or PTSD.
For mild to moderate pain, Lemon OG has you covered. She’s not the strongest analgesic cannabis available, but she’ll do the trick for many aches and pains since she also boasts anti-inflammatory properties.
Munchies are a common side effect of many marijuana strains, and this one is no different - the intense hunger tokers feel after getting high on Lemon OG can be excellent for recovering from lack of appetite, with antiemetic traits that reduce feelings of nausea. As such, cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy might find this is the very herb to bring back the hunger pangs.
Some sleep disorders and insomnia can be treated with a few tokes of this stuff, since once her high begins to wind down, deep slumber is almost always on the cards.
Growing Lemon OG Feminized Seeds
A fairly small plant, Lemon OG Feminized isn’t likely to exceed 100 to 150cm in height even when fully mature, so pinching and topping are unnecessary here. Much like her ancestors, her Kush lineage grants her a natural, in-built resilience to many pests and diseases - and this hardiness can also make her a great strain for those new to cannabis cultivation, as she’s far more likely to recover from small mistakes in her environmental conditions than other strains.
Of course, if you’re experienced but prefer the simpler things in life, then this low-maintenance strain is also a great option.
Lemon OG will be happy enough in most environments, be that indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse. What’s important is your ability to keep her temperature and humidity at optimal levels - a breeze is a good idea when outdoors to develop sturdy stems, but you can replicate this indoors with an oscillating fan, which will also keep lower areas under control.
Hydroponics (soilless growing) is a viable option with this hybrid, and the direct input of nutrients into her roots will ramp up her size fairly quickly. However, organic soil is preferable if you’re wanting to boost the terpene production - which in turn will do wonders for the flavor and fragrance by creating a synergy between terpenes and cannabinoids in the plant.
A Sea of Green (SoG) setup is a good move when growing Lemon OG Fem, as this way the plants will direct their energy toward growing buds on the upper canopy, where they can receive the most sunlight. Doing this can even cut the vegetative period down by up to two weeks, without reducing your yield - and sometimes even increasing it.
As your plants hit the flowering stage, you’ll notice how they begin to bud and those pale leaves will begin to exhibit a glistening layer of trichomes, turned almost orange by fiery pistils (hairs).
Since this little madam has a high calyx-to-leaf ratio, you should find her indoor yields come in at between 450 and 550 grams per square meter after 8 to 10 weeks. And of course, since these seeds are in feminized form, there’s no need to worry about males pollinating the batch.
If you do choose to grow Lemon OG outdoors, you’ll find she really flourishes - provided the climate is right. Any environment that mimics the warm, humid world of the Mediterranean is perfect, and your harvest will reflect that - usually producing around 400 to 600 grams of nugs even for newbies, and for the more experienced growers, up to 800 grams.
A strain of many names, Lemon OG remains remarkable no matter what you choose to call her. Combining award-winning parents to create an enlightening and uplifting high, this strain covers all the bases - flavor, scent, recreational and medicinal.
With a citrus tang that’s evident even as she grows, the flavors of this ganja are gorgeous regardless of your method of consumption. But her highs are arguably better, boosting mood and inviting creativity to the party before winding down to a sleepy yet focused body-stone.
With antipsychotic properties, Lemon OG Fem can be used as a therapeutic strain to relieve various psychological ailments and even some mild to moderate pain - and to bag a stash of your own, she’s simple enough.
For beginners, the yields may be a little lower, but if you embark on this cultivation journey with some experience, you may be surprised at just how hefty a harvest you’ll find.
