THC and CBD Level

A description of Lemon Haze’s aroma would have to include the word “citrusy”. It comes as no surprise that this strain has been named after this citrus fruit since it really smells exactly like a bowl of peeled lemons. Its scent can be overpowering, in fact, so you may need to think of ways of masking its intense fruity and earthy aroma if discretion is paramount. As you might expect, this strain’s citrus profile carries over to its flavour too. Lemon Haze has all the taste of lemon rinds, with a tangy, sweetness that’s hard to beat.

Lemon Haze Weed Strain Growing Tips

Growing Lemon Haze

If you’re looking for info and growing tips to get started with your crop, the good news is that even if you’re a complete novice to growing your own green, you shouldn’t find it too challenging to cultivate Lemon Haze marijuana strain. This hybrid is best for outdoor growing in sunny, warm climates, so it may not be ideal for outside UK growers, however, it thrives equally well indoors so long as it has adequate light. It’s also very resistant to mould and common pests, so it shouldn’t pose too many difficulties even for beginners. Indoor growers will need to trim its height back regularly and prune its branches early in its vegetative stage.

Flowering Time

You can expect your Lemon Haze cannabis strain to flower approximately within 8-9 weeks if grown indoors under the right growing conditions.


If you’re growing indoors in optimal conditions, you can expect a yield of up to 15oz (425g) per square metre. Meanwhile, for outdoor growers, a slightly higher yield of around 18oz (510g) per plant can be expected.

When to Harvest

If you’re growing outside, harvesting should take place in early October if you have a local climate with the right humidity level. It’s important to note that if you live in an area of the USA with warm summers of 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit, an October harvesting time is realistic. On the other hand, if you live in one of the cooler states or in the UK, you may find that it takes longer for your flowers to bud. In some cases, it may not complete flowering at all depending on the weather. In general, if you’re based in the south of England, you may be able to harvest your crop in mid October/early November, but further north it’s better to grow indoors.

Is Lemon Haze Indica or Sativa?

Lemon Haze is a 70% Sativa dominant hybrid, producing effects typical of Sativa strains, such as an energetic and motivating buzz.

While growing Super Lemon Haze by GHS, I didn't encounter any hardships. This experience led me to conclude that it's a highly resistant plant. As a result, I achieved an amazing haze high. It's worth noting that I'm a sativa fan, but it's evident that this strain may not suit everybody's preferences.
Yes, in my opinion the main lemon haze meaning is its taste and enchanting effects, that’s the best high for me because of my mild social anxiety. It stimulates me a lot!
