Lemon Kush refers to at least three different hybrid strains of cannabis, two of which are indica-dominant. One of the indica-dominant strains (the most common of the three) is a cross between Master Kush and Lemon Joy; the other, created by Alien Genetics, is a cross between Lemon G (or Lemon G-13) and the landrace strain Afghan Kush.[1][2] The sativa-dominant hybrid strain's creator and genetics are unknown.[2]

Description and Effects

Leafly says of the strain, "the genetics are the only area of dispute as everyone will agree that the sweet flavors of lemon and citrus mix exceptionally well with the earthy kush undertones."[1] According to Wikileaf, each of the Lemon Lush strains "[give] off a strong lemony scent, indicative of a high amount of Limonene, which some researchers believe may help fight carcinogens."[2] Buds are light green and covered in white trichomes.[1]

All three strains are "powerful" and "produce a classic high, typical of their Indica and Sativa heritages, in which the Indica's heavy 'couchlock' effect is coupled with the Sativa's energizing and uplifting cerebral properties."[2] Strain Spot says Lemon Kush creates a "cerebral high with an earthly relaxing calm" and recommends it for combatting anxiety and inviting creativity.[3] Common side effects include dry eyes and mouth, dizziness, headaches, and paranoia.[2] The strain has also been recommended for patients with anorexia, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, insomnia, chronic pain, and Parkinson's disease due to its relaxing effects after consumption. Night use is also recommended for users seeking sleep.[3][4]


Lemon Kush strains flower for 8 to 10 weeks and produce low to moderate yields.[2][3] They are best grown organically and do not often grow taller than 6 feet tall.[2]


According to Leafly, "Lemon Kush is the perfect solution for when the stresses of life have you feeling sour."[1]
