Strawberry Lemonade Strain Information
Strawberry Lemonade is a potent, sativa-dominant strain with an aroma as delicious as its name suggests. The strain is a combination of legendary Strawberry Cough and sour Lemon OG. Its effects start off with a focused head buzz that melts into physical relaxation. Strawberry Lemonade’s wide appeal has even earned it the title of Best Sativa Flower in the 2016 High Times Cannabis Cup. The strain’s THC content has been measured at between 16% and 28%.
Flowers of Strawberry Lemonade are small to medium in size and adhere in a clustered formation that resembles a head of cauliflower. The buds hold a very dense, indica-typical structure, with small leaves that are tightly coiled inward. The leaves themselves are a light shade of sage green and are wound through with orange and brown pistils. Finally, a blanket of cloudy white trichomes makes these flowers appear almost white when seen from a distance.
As you might expect, properly cured flowers of Strawberry Lemonade give off a mostly strawberry scent. A closer whiff reveals notes of tangy citrus lurking underneath to brighten up the overall impression. Meanwhile, grinding up these nuggets yields a dank and hashy odor, possibly passed on from the OG Kush in Lemon OG’s background. When burnt, Strawberry Lemonade gives off an uncommonly smooth and easily palatable smoke. This smoke tastes like pure berries on the exhale.
