Homegrown Cannabis Co. offers the combined prowess of Super Lemon Haze, Orange Bud
, and Lemon Tree in one incredible mix pack that is sure to make pleasure the olfaction. The mere names of these strains are enough to conjure mental imagery of zesty citrus fruits. Plus, they have a THC content that hovers at a moderately high level of 15% to 22%, which allows them to give a soaring high with less risk of overwhelming users.
Super Lemon Haze hails from the union of two powerhouses of the Sativa family - Super Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk. As such, it comes as no surprise that this plant inherited the all-day high and fresh lemon scent of its predecessors. Such traits earned it several accolades in prestigious competitions including the High Times Cannabis Cup
. It is best used in the morning due to its energizing effect.
Meanwhile, both Orange Bud and Lemon Tree are gaudy plants that flaunt picturesque buds laden with fiery orange pistils and deep purple leaves. Both hybrids emanate an exotic fragrance of oranges. However, since Orange Bud is an Indica-leaning hybrid, it exerts a pronounced body relaxation whereas the Evenly balanced hybrid Lemon Tree
induces a buzzing cerebral high that inspires vigor before the body submits to calm.
Apart from promising a grow area that smells of lovely citrus, the Lemonem mix pack guarantees high germination rate. Additionally, being all in feminized form, all plants that spring from the seeds are to become generous mothers under favorable conditions.
Growing Lemonem Mixpack
Given the significant influence of Sativa in their genes, all three hybrids grow into tall, lanky plants. These towering hybrids are then adorned with dense, resinous colas laden with vibrant orange pistils. Furthermore, the emergence of stunning purple hues upon exposure to lower temperatures exponentially enhances its visual appeal.
Those who want to enjoy hybrid joints made from this mix pack but are torn on deciding which strain must be grown first could now rest easy. Given its ease of cultivation, this trio could be grown simultaneously without any trouble.
Super Lemon Haze, Orange Bud, and Lemon Tree thrive best in outdoor gardens with warm, Mediterranean climates. However, such setup may not always be possible, especially for discreet growers because of the plants' tendency to stretch out and reach towering heights. In such cases, topping or fimming is ideal for encouraging it to grow into a shorter, bushier plant. However, there must be adequate airflow to prevent mold attacks.
It is also possible to grow this trio indoors provided that there is ample vertical space to accommodate its tall height while providing enough distance from grow lamps. Otherwise, the Screen of Green technique or low-stress training coupled with mainlining may be used to control its height. Such horticultural methods coax the branches to grow laterally instead of stretching vertically.
These plants would also fare better when cultivated under the ideal temperature of 20 to 26°C and relative humidity (RH) of 40% to 50% during the flowering period. To bring out the regal purple tinge of this flora, lower the temperature and RH level to 18 to 24°C and 30 to 40% two weeks prior to harvest.
Super Lemon Haze
Given the fact that the world-famous Super Lemon Haze is considered as one of the finest Sativas in existence, its ease of cultivation is quite a pleasant surprise. After all, its legendary lineage bestowed it with resilient genetics that can withstand slightly fluctuating climates. Super Lemon Haze is also a low maintenance plant because of its spacious calyx to leaf ratio and enhanced immunity against mold and mildew growth.
Apart from its sturdy build, this variety also boasts a rapid growth rate, alluring bag appeal, and if that is not enough, it is also the most high-yielding variety among the three. After flowering for 8 to 9 weeks, expect prolific yields of dense, kief-caked buds with bright streaks of tangerine pistils. Depending on the amount of care and sustenance it received, it may bear about 800 grams of buds per square meter.
When exposed to plenty of sunlight, it could yield as much as 900 grams of top-shelf buds per plant. To ensure that the branches do not crumble under the weight of its massive buds, support the stalks with trellises.
Despite being an Indica-dominant variety, Orange Bud flaunts its Sativa genes in its tall stature. Outdoors, it can grow as tall as 8 ft - thus, being the tallest among the three. When the garden is secluded enough, cultivating this gigantic plant under the sun would maximize its potential. Otherwise, its towering height could attract unwanted attention. In such cases, it would be better to grow it indoors where the lanky stalks could be coaxed into growing laterally.
Apart from the effort needed in managing its colossal height, Orange Bud is as easy to cultivate as Super Lemmon Haze. After all, its Afghani ancestry grants it with hardy genes. However, since this hybrid produces incredibly dense nugs, it requires adequate air circulation around the buds. Otherwise, the moisture retained in its crevices could serve as an unwitting invitation to molds and mildews.
Compared to the other two strains in this mix pack, Orange Bud tends to yield the least, but under optimal care, it could produce up to 400 to 450 grams of dense, trichome-laden buds accentuated with fiery orange pistils and deep purple leaves. It only takes 8 to 9 weeks of blooming before such precious nugs could be relished.
In terms of ease of cultivation, Lemon Tree is the most difficult variety to rear among the three. As such, cultivating this hybrid would prove to be a challenge to neophytes, but it should not be much of a problem for more experienced green thumbs. This plant requires deftness in topping as manicuring its foliage is essential to produce a massive yield. To encourage lateral growth and a bushier structure, cut back new growths along the top of the plant regularly as it matures.
Despite it needing more skills and effort to cultivate, Lemon Tree is the fastest growing among the three as it could be harvested by early October with up to 500 grams per plant. Indoors, after just 7 to 9 weeks of flowering, expect to harvest 350 to 500 grams of resinous emerald buds per square meter. Given the chunky nature of its nugs, it would need support mechanisms such as trellises to ensure that its branches could support the massive colas.
Fragrance and Flavor
A potpourri of citrusy fruit fragrances would greet the senses once this mix pack starts flowering. Although of similar primary flavor, all three have varying undertones. Orange Bud is lightly skunky, Lemon Tree has a bit of kerosene-like spunk, while Super Lemon Haze has both with a lot of muskiness.
Those seeking for an all-day mixpack need not look further. The trio has one for the morning, the afternoon, and before bedtime, so there's sure to be a suitable bud anytime of the day. Plus, with THC levels hovering just around 15% to 22%, these strains induce just the right amount of euphoria without the effects being overbearing.
Super Lemon Haze
Given its healing and revitalizing effects, Super Lemon Haze is unsurprisingly the go-to strain for many daytime consumers in the quest of improving the mood, as well as creativity and focus on getting things done. Upon the inhalation of its refreshing lemon-scented smoke, a noticeable sharpening of senses takes over. In turn, colors are perceived more vividly, and sounds are discerned to be more melodious.
After quite some time though, the energetic cerebral buzz would eventually settle into a mild, relaxing finish that inspires profound thoughts and a general sense of tranquility. This helps ease the initially frenzied bodily processes into its normal state.
The impacts of Orange Bud announce its presence with a euphoric buzz that swarms deep within the cranium. Although this variety is predominantly Indica, it still exerts a mind-clearing high that invigorates and inspires creative contemplation - thus, making it excellent for artists or those seeking to discover novel ideas. Orange Bud also makes for a perfect strain for socializing with friends as it brings the sociable chatterbox in even the most introverted person in the room.
Once the initial head rush passes, a soothing body relaxation then comes creeping in. Starting from the temples, it washes away deep-seated muscle pain while ushering a profound state of calmness. There is no need to fret though, as this body buzz is pleasantly balanced. As such, it would not weigh down and hinder one from accomplishing daily tasks. However, sticking to the recommended amount is ideal because on higher dosage, Orange Bud can leave one locked on the couch for hours on end.
The smooth, uplifting, and motivating effects of Lemon Tree is best for afternoon bud snacking. It is most famous for kickstarting the mind and body with an enlivening high that boost focus, creativity, and sensitivity to stimuli. Then, as the initial effects start to wane, a more relaxed vibe kicks in, leaving consumers mildly sluggish.
Because there is a strain suitable for every time of the day, another advantage of the Lemonem mix pack is its ability to provide round the clock relief. Because of their high THC content, all three have can alleviate chronic pain, as well as mitigate mental concerns such as stress, anxiety, and depression. That said, they are deemed to be not suitable for remedying seizures for epileptic patients because of its low CBD content.
There is no one-size-fits-all dosage for cannabis. After all, different people have different needs and THC tolerance. But for starters, dosing around 1 gram of ground bud for joints, bowls, and pipes and 10 mg of THC for edibles is ideal. Depending on the severity of the condition being treated, the dosage can be increased incrementally.
Given its moderate potency, overdosing with these strains is less likely. However, responsible medicating should always be observed to keep the accompanying side effects at a minimum. With moderate consumption, mild discomforts such as dry mouth and eyes can be expected. On the other hand, higher doses may trigger anxiety and/or paranoia
Mixed Lemonem Pack
Those seeking an all-rounder mixpack will never go wrong with the Lemonem trio. Super Lemon Haze, Orange Bud, and Lemon Tree have varying effects and are fitting to use in different times of the day. Therefore, no matter the time, there's surely a bud waiting to be of service.
Another appealing aspect of this mix pack is that it is also a delight to cultivate. Apart from not being too finicky with its requirements, it also rewards the cultivator with a plentiful harvest of dense, trichome-rich buds cradled in a sea of orange and purple hues. In as little as 7 to 9 weeks, this triad's lemony and orangey notes could be savored to the heart's content.
